HEPTAGONAL TRACK MEET ON SATURDAY ON SOLDIERS FIELD

Other Five Colleges Will Be Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Columbia, and Pennsylvania

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

About the most colossal thing in the way of track that the Stadium has witnessed for some time will occur on Saturday, when the Heptagonal Meet gets under way. The trials are scheduled for 10.15 o'clock in the morning, and the finals for 1.30 o'clock.

The six colleges outside of Harvard which will participate are Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Cornell, Pennsylvania, and Columbia.

The two toughest contenders for first place will be Harvard and Cornell. Although the Crimson defeated the Carnelian's in the Quadrangular Meet this winter, the outdoor competition may be a different story.

Harvard must get practically top performance all the way along the line if it is to prevail over one of the best balanced teams Jack Moakley has ever built at Cornell. Cornell is figured to score in 13 of the 15 events on the program, and Harvard in the same number. The preliminary dope sheets appearing in Cambridge show Harvard to have a probable total of 52 points, Cornell 50 points, Pennsylvania and Princeton 33 points each, Yale 32, Dartmouth 29, and Columbia 11.

From Philadelphia comes word from Pennsylvania's coach, Lawson Robertson, that Gene Venzke, 1500-meter star, will run in only one race. Carefully priming Venzke for the Olympic Team, Robertson, who is also Olympic track and field coach, is taking no chances.

If Venzke competes only in the 1500-meter run, Cornell's flying Johnny Meaden is almost sure to snatch the six points in the 800-meter race.

There is still a chance, however, that Cornell will be spared these fatal points, for if Venzke does not have to run a trial in the morning, he will win the 800-meter also for Pennsylvania.
