Crimson Harriers Struggle Against Ivy League Rivals in Heptagonals

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

With the biggest effort of the season coming up today in the form of the Ivy League Heptagonals, the Crimson harriers left Cambridge yesterday afternoon for New York and ultimately Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx where the nine-college race will start at 11 o'clock.

Seven leading Varsity runners are making the trip along with Coach Jaakko Mikkola and Manager Brad Perkins. They spent last night at the New York Harvard Club and will proceed to Van Cortlandt at 9 o'clock this morning to dress for the race.

Favored teams in this meeting of cast coast cross country talent are Dartmouth and Army, but in a five mile race with 63 entries anything can happen, and Jaakko hopes to get some of his men in the low scoring positions. Last year, Army, one of the newcomers to the new nine-sided Heptagonal, took home the lowest score and the Indians captain, Jack Hanley, who will be leading his team this year, won the coveted first place.

Prospects Fairly Strong

Last Saturday the Mikkolamen were squeezed out by Yale but managed to come in ahead of Princeton. With Penn and Columbia both fielding weak squads this year the Crimson's prospects today are fairly strong.

Frank Gurley, the newly elected Varsity captain and Freshman veteran, Huna Rosenfeld, and John Coagan should lead the field for the College harriers. The other entries are Ray Brown, Hal May, Peter Morgan, and Charles Worth. Cogan has been coming up fast in recent meets and may give his teammates Gurley and Rosenfeld quite a test.
