numbor of entries wnsmade, resulted
In a complete reversal of tho dopo.
Miss Mabol Longacro, who has been
toBsing tho eight-pound shot thirty
and thlrty4hroo feet every day In
practice, was beaton by Miss Blanche
Hlgglns, who put tho shot 29 foot and
9 inchos. Mabel Longacro took sec-

MIbb Mario Clark won for tho sec

jump, clearing tho bar at four feot.
Miss Theodora Dodds and Lillian
Wirt wcro tied for Becond with n Jump
of 3 feet 11 inches.
Tho baseball throw was entered for
tho first timo as an ovent in a meet
of this kind, and its popularity as
sures It of a permanent place on tho
program. Mabel Longacro toyed with
tho little Bphero nbout which our na
tion ls popularly supposed to revolvo
and shot it across tho field 1G8 feet
mrd 8 inches; T-he Leyda twins,
Whoso skill has been frequently dem
onstrated in meots and athlotic con
tests about school, took tho next two
places, Luclllo throwing the pellet 157
feet and 8 inches, nnd Camlllc tossing
It 131 feet and 10 Inches.
Tho pole vault was easily tho best
display of vaulting that tho girls have
evor exhibited here. Though thero
were but four con'tostnnts, they were
all very skillful at tho art of elevating
tho human body nbovo a wooden bar
by tho aid of a sharp stick. Miss Eva
Fisko oasily took the honors In this
event, clearing the bar at 5 feot 3
Inches. Marie Clark was second with
a vault of 5 feet, and Wlnnlfred Dodds
took third place. Having Won the
ovent, Miss Flske took a trial run at
tho bar for luck, nnd cleared It easily
at 5 feet G Inches. In landing, her
loft kneo was twisted. Hor admiring
friends fought for nn opportunity to
help hor off tho field, and a thorough
Investigation showed that sho had re
colved a slight sprain, though nothing
serious is anticipated.
In tho lntorclnss relay, which closed
tho affair, tho freshmen won an easy
first, with tho seniors, juniors and
sophomores finishing in tho order
Taking It all In all, It was a very
successful affair, and Miss Glttlngs,
who ran off the events, should feel
1 finttorod at Its success. Since it Is
I attention becauso of its completeness.
Tho two other schools, Vassar and
Berkeley, who hold bucIi contests for
( girls, nave never had so many con
testants as appeared In the meet at
Nebraska, nor have they made as suc
cessful records. In only ono event,
the Iiigh jumiy.vhlclr-VasBar-claims-f
with a height of 4 feot 7 Inchos, has
Nebraska boon outdistanced.
The first meet of its kind ever hold
hero resulted in a sad accident. A
small boy who had entored without
paying admission nnd who crowded
too close to tho ball game got hit
with a bat and broken of tho bad habit
of mooching in on ball games at tho
same swoop. Tho second meet was
also blurred by a fatality. Ono of the
college baseball team, ToaFh To Teavo
tho field, lumbered over tho foot of
tho smallest girl in school and sho
was unablo to dance for tho rest of
tho season. Yqstordny not a spectator
suffered injury, and Miss Eva Flske,
whoso polo vaulting drop worried her
friends, enjoys hor position, for in
stead of breaking a bono, sho smashed
a record. Who says tuo worms rror
growing better? H
