' AT «K MEET * IIP For. Third Time. This, Year a Varsity Team Humbles' Hamilton—Dual Meet Won After Freeman Breaks Hard Fight—Outcome Doubtful Until the Very End- Pole Vault Record, Calder. the-Two Mile Record.\ an to Three times this year, and in as many sports, has the ibuff and blue of Hamilton drooped before the scar- let and brown of Sti Lawrence. In football last fall the blue battalion fell back before the scarlet line, beat- en-ten to nothing; in baseball this^ spring St. Lawrence was again vie'* torious, by a score bf four to two; 1 on Saturday the track men,. not be outdone by the other teams, prjoved ^their supremacy in a dual m:et by defeating the down-state teinj by-a margin cf ten points. The final score was sixty-three to fifty- three. / Hamilton came with every expec- tation *6f winning, while the St. Law- rence supporters were none too con- fi lent. But the best HJamilton could da was five firsts | against the Var- sity's eight. The, meet was as the onte'st with Rochester the week be- fore; -but it was somewhat different. in. that, from the vjery first, St. Law- rence was always.in the lead. This l:ad, to be sure, was never verv large, at times falling .to a single point. • Again the outcome was settled! in the very last events. ' St. Lawrence liad secured a considerable lead af- er the high-jump,, but it dwindled to ne point\ when FJamilton s^ept the pa^ds^lean^by^ektakikig.- all three lace's in the halfl mile event. The (hammer throw and the two hundred and twenty yard idash settled tlfings, however. When i these had been fought out the Vjarsity led by eleven points, sb that Hamilton's victory in the broad jump Jmade no material dif- ferences i| ; The middle distances furnished the chief excitement! of the meet. In the quarter the menjfwere bunched all the way, but Doddsj struggled thjrough with a final spurt and captured first. Hitchcock finished . second, but later was disqualifieii, . < The half 1 mile dashed St. Lawrence's hopes for a while, as the. thire'e Hamilton runners took all the . points after a heart- breaking finish;! • \ '•' f ' ,, « It was another di.y of conquest for Williams. \DW\ si owed a clean pair of heels to Wspignian, the Hamilton flyer, in their three encounters.! Sweet and Carnal sttilck close in the ham- mer throw and! high\ jump, tieing in each of these 'everits. Freeman had • hard luck ,in the. pole' vault, for after finishing; second he troke the college record by vaulting ten feet, six, inph.es . Wenigman and Eggleston were the star performers for Hamilton. The latter proved jtoo fast for\ the local men in the two mile and mile events. Calder finished second in the twp mile, coming—in under 1 the college re- cord, and in both long distances made\ a plucky fight: - The meet was a fitting-close for a successful' year in -all, branches of ath- letics. ,\.:''• '.

The Varsity was'^uhable to play Hobart on account •\bfi'-rain. ft was a .great disappointment to the play- ers, as everything pointed to another _ victory.

St. Lawrence was not up to her usual standard, and Keuka won the 'game by a score of twelve to two. Logan was hit rather lreely in the first three innings and this, coupled with indif- ferent, support, allowed the Qppon^' ents.to pile up their large total^The Varsity was just beginn.ing^tonit the Keuka twirler near the close. j St. Lawrence wasj not so much out- classed as the score would indicate.\ The men simply couldn't get iirdp the game with any life, the disastrous opening somewhat (discouraging them. Also, after the hard trip and without practice since the St Michael's ^fame the week before, they were, in poor shape to put up~any fast baseial. St. Lawrence did not register a- taHy un-\ til the fifth. The team opene'd up their battmg eyes- in tbis inning, bunqhing four of their six hits for two runs. Keuka started in the'very first with two runs. The second inning, how- ever,\ decided the -game, > as they pushed six runners across the plate, and then came back in. th.<e> third fpc four more. Aft-er this^Logan tight- ened and Keuka \failed Jto score \in the , three innings following. Summary: ji' Keuka Brishm, J. b. Wallace, 3 b. Patcrowe, s. s. Lptt, q. Grubb, p. Shoemaker, c>f.
