VARSITY MEET IS
NEXT ON PROGRAM
Teams Captained by Gamble
and Hanavan to Com-
Pete in Trvout
BARTON IS NEWEST SHOT-PUTTER
Following the usual custom, there
will be two competing teams at the
varsity meet Saturday night, one head-
ed by Eddie Hanavan, the other by
Capt. Gamble. Naturally the Gambles
are going to be handicapped by the loss
of their leader but it has been attempt-
ed to even things up so that the meet
' Will be close between the two squads.
It is now fairly well settled that
Hanavan will run in the- distance
events and his form will be anxiously
watched. His showing of last year,
and the large amount of training he
has done, so far, lead many to expect
some phenomenal performances from
him. A new one has been sprung in
putting Barton' in the shotput. The
lanky pole vaulter has just discovered
he can push the pill a little ways and
is to be given a chance Saturday.
The entries show that the teams are
evenly matched. However, some of the
younger generation may come through
at the final test and show un-
expected form. The meet is also a
try-out for the varsity team that is to
meet Syracuse and Cornell and the
work will be critically observed for
this purpose. The 35 yard dash, the
hurdles, the 880, and the 440 should
be exciting and close. The officials for
the meet will be the sane as in former
