ing the running of an event in the
annual junior and senior track and
field tournament in the 13th coast
defense army, Brooklyn, a 100 foot
of the balcony railing collapsed this
afternoon, throwing 300 cheering boys
to the floor 12 feet below. Six of
them were seriously injured and 60
others were hurt.
All the spectators on the side of the
balcony where the railing broke were
boys ranging from 14 to 17 years ofi
age, students at the Utreht Commer-
cial and Eastern district high schools.
Crowded to Balcony
The running track was beneath
the balcony. To see the results of the
440 yard run which was being con-
tested the boys rose ina mass and
leaned against the railing. It gave
away as the runners crossed the fin-
ish line.
The balcony was made of iron, but.
fastened to a wooden base which gave
way against the surging of the boys
and those packed against the railing;
