"IS MY RACE ON?" ASKS RAY IN WIRE

Brookins of Iowa Connolly of Georgetown, and Taylor of Princeton Withdraw Entries

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Joie Ray will compete in the open handicap meet of the H. A. A. in the Stadium Saturday. The first definite word was received yesterday by the H. A. A. in the form of the telegram, "Is my race on?" As two of the best of the specially invited runners, Brookins, the Iowa hurdler, and Captain Connolly, the Georgetown miler, had sent word earlier in the day that they could not compete, Ray's acceptance of the invitation is especially welcome to the track management. Taylor, the Princeton quarter-miler, who was listed among the definite starters Saturday has also forced to withdraw.

Among the ten entries for the mile, Kennedy of Yonkers, N. Y., will probably press Ray the hardest. The fact that he finished on Ray's heels on Memorial Day and came in second in the N. Y. A. C. handicap mile last Saturday with the time of 4.22 makes him a real possibility to draw Ray out.

Ray is expected to arrive in Boston today or tomorrow. With good conditions on Saturday it is quite likely that he may turn in a sensational mile, despite the inability of such runners as Connolly of Georgetown, Douglas of Yale, and Kirby of Cornell, to compete with him in his attempt to break Norman Tabor's old record of 4m. 12 3-5s.
