One sprinter and one walker have still to be chosen.

At Inter-Faculty the standard was definitely better than last year. In the sprints J. P. Eastwood and Cliff Adams were excellent. That 100 yards in 10 1/10 secs., with only inches between them, was really the highlight of the afternoon.

Eastwood again collected the 220 yards title from Adams (C. V.) and Arnold. Winning the 440 in 53 secs., Bowyer was not unduly pushed and probably could have done better. He was second in the N.Z.U. event in 1938. Geoff, Annear, too, could have made faster time in the 880 if he had been pressed over the lost half lap. As it was, his time was 2.3 4/5, compared with Nixon's winning time of 1.58 at last Tournament. Lawry (Massey) was a good second to Annear and should he a useful second string.

In the one mile, Scrymgeour won from Annear and Congalton in 4.37. On Monday evening he also won the 3 miles from Congnlton and lowe in 15.26 4/5, but he is capable of better times.

In the walk, Mclean had the misfortune to be disqualified for "lifting." Although both McLean and Dalzlell walked well, their times were only fair.

Adams's Fine Jump

In clearing 5ft, 9½in, at inter-Faculty, Jack Adams achieved the best leap of his career. He will be hard to beat at Tournament.

In the broad Jump, O'Regan unfortunately spiked himself after his first effort, but finished second nevertheless. Cochrane, the Freshman who beat him, performed consistently well in Freshers' events, winning the 100 yards. 220 yards, and the long jump.

Good Hurdler

E. M. Irving, N.Z.U. title-holder, is the outstanding hurdler at V.U.C. At the National Championships recently he was unofficially clocked at 15 2/5 In the 120.

This much is certain. Victoria has her strongest athletic team for years, and at last wo will be soundly represented in the field events.
