We are all feeling pretty good
as the result of las-t Thursday's
meet between the University of
Washington track team and that
of OAC. on the field of the
latter. Ever sisce it was deter
mined that the meet' was to take
place here it has been much
talked of and day by day greater
interest was awakened.
That Washington had a strong
team was everywhere admitted,
but our boys have been making
such splendid showings on every
hand that we were firmly con
vinced that victory was ours, by
a small margin at least, before
the U. of O. team arrived. But
with all our confidence, none
were found bold enough to pre
dict that we would lead the
visiting team by 20 points; but
we did,, the final score showing
OAC 71 to 51 for U. of W.
A good crowd of people were
ia attendance and many of those
present came from some distance
abroad to witness the events.
Manv surprises greeted " the
visitors; lor instance, Dow Walk
er took the first place over Tom
McDonald in the hammer throw.
Green, too, Washington's crack
sprinter, was defeated by the
pride of OAC, Captain Williams.
Smitbson, in. sprints, could do as
he liked with any visitor who
would try him at his own dis
tance. There are only three men on
earth who really know what
Williairs and Smitbson can do
if they have to, and those men
are Wiiliams, Smithson and
their trainer, W. O. Trine.

has won his spurs in plenty of
hard races, and he met the best

The Berkeley boys were will

Snedigar, their star 100-yard

ease, letting Snedigar lead to the
50-yard mark, and then passing
him as he pleased. Parsons again
allowed Snedigar to lead to the
last ten yards of the 220, and
then shooting ahead broke the
record for the -distance. r:
