CRIMSON IS CHOICE FOR HEPTAGONAL MEET WIN

JOHNSON IS EXPECTED TO SMASH RECORD IN JAVELIN

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Cornell and Yale will be the chief rivals to Harvard in its try for the Eastern track and field title at Princeton's Palmer Stadium Saturday. In spite of the strain of divisionals most of the Crimson contestants have maintained or improved the good condition and form which characterized them in the Princeton meet last week.

A feature event for Crimson fans will be the 1500-meter run in which Captain Jack Scheu will vie with Gene Venzke of Penn, one of the best of the nation's milers. Venzke will win with record-breaking time if he is to win at all, for Scheu will probably do even better than he did in last week's record run.

Dick Johnson will do a good enough job with the javelin to win the event and no one will be surprised to see another record broken. Other firsts are looked for from Bob Playfair in the 3000, Milt Green in the hurdles, Norm Cahners in the hammer, and Mac Millard in the discus.

Bob Hall, who took second in both high jump and shot on Saturday in spite of a sore groin, is now bothered with an upset stomach which it is hoped will disappear before the meet. Dubiel has picked up considerably since Saturday and may show some surprising wins.

Coach Eddie Farrell yesterday made the selection of the two relay teams which he will run in the meet. In the 400-meter sprint relay are entered Bob Brookings, Eddie Calvin, Downer, and Arthur Duffey. For the 1600-meter relay he has chosen Carl Abell, Johnny Dorman, Dubie Brookings, and O'Connor. Since these teams have had no practice together so far, little aid in the way of points is expected from them.

The only change so far from the lineup of the Princeton meet is in the 1500 and the 800 meters. Jack Scheu will run alone in the 1500, while Tony Bliss will accompany Bob Woodward in the 1600, Johnny Dorman limiting his efforts to the 1600-meter relay. Eighteen men in all will make the trip
