THE VARSITIES AT SY STON PARK—continued from page 231,

in practice the day before. In spite of a little misfiring on the getaway he roared up the course in 29.09 secs., taking the curve faster than anyone else. Cook managed 29.14 secs. on the E.R. A., which slithered sideways in accelerating.

Evans shot his bolt with a run in 29.32 secs., and then Bertram put an end to the discussion by an impressive and masterly run in 28.86 secs.

And so ended a very interesting day’s sport, with plenty of real enthusiasm, some first-class performances, and a win for Cambridge by 9 points to 2.
