Army Gains Third Heptagonal Win; Willo Fisher, Harwood Only Winners for Cindermen


Grounded in Boston by Saturday's rain, the Crimson contingent turned up forty-five minutes late at the Heptagonal Games at Princeton and then proceeded to finish right in the middle of a field of nine.

As they expected, the meet was bossed by the service schools, Army winning with 56 points to Navy's 51 1/2. Penn followed with 38 1/2; then came Dartmouth with 36 3/4; Harvard, 22 1/2; Yale, 17; Cornell, 8 3/4; Princeton, 7; and Columbia, 2.

Army's Third Win

The victory was Army's third in four years and brings the Cadets right up even to the Mikkolamen in total number of wins in the Heps. This marks the fourth consecutive year that the silver cup has been held by out of the academies.

Harvard won two events and that was about all it did the whole afternoon. Willo Fisher won the hammer throw with 153 feet 6 1/2 inches, brother Jack, surprisingly, being out of the money. Pete Harwood went up to 12 feet 6 inches to win the pole vault, while Owen Torrey cleared 12 feet, his best mark of the season, to tie with John Barrow of Navy for second place.

Relay Team Third

Those two events accounted for the bulk of the Crimson scoring. Seven points in other events told the whole story for the men from Cambridge. Vince Moriarty garnered one point with a fifth in the two mile, and in the mile relay, the team of Bill Ellis, John Edelman, Bernie O'Brien, and Bob Clark came in third.

In the shot put, Bill Jackson and Jack Fisher combined with a fourth and fifth.
