Eastwood ran an easy second in his 440 yards heat, as also did Irving in the 120 yards hurdles. The finals of both these events were beautiful to watch. Irving got home by inches from two Otago men in 16 1-5secs., and Eastwood showed a clean pair of heels to the field to win easily by 15 yards in 50 2-5Secs.—an excellent time on the slow track.
Irving qualified also in the 220 yards hurdles, but couldn't do better than third in the final on Monday—a race which was won by Ramsay (O.) in 26secs.—a New Zealand University record.
Saturday ended with the scores for the Athletic Shield as under:—Otago 11. Auckland 3. Canterbury 3. Victoria 2.
We were not downhearted, however, as we had numerous finalists to perform on the Monday.
