The Cokers, under Coach Joseph A. Lerew, took first honors in nine of the events while the Scotties captured four. Several records were set by the performers who found weather conditions ideal. In some, however, the opposition Tas not very keen and the athletes made no effort for new marks. IVbittafcer of the Orange aid Black- turned in a record when he the javelin, through the ozone for a distance of 165 feet, 16 feet better than tee all-time Fayette. county scholastic record. In a priveious meet at East Huntingdon Township park last Wednesday, he hajd set a new mark with a heave of nearly 160 feet. It was the second meet in whjc he participated this year and he es tablished a new scholastic perform- ance in Fayette and Westmoreland counties. The time in the sprints and Tims fair, Woodrnff. the fleet footed ace of the Cokers, winning easily as lie completely outdistanced a field to annex both the SSO and the mile events. He never in danger as continued to flash the brilliant stride that has seen him sweep through all opposition. The broad jump mark ol 21 Jeet ona inch by Laddick was four inches better than the all-time Fayette rec- ord ol 1929 set by Stribltag. Incident- ally, TVhittaker broke his own javflm leave of 149 feet which he set last year. The high jump won by Miller who did a quarter of aa inch than the county record of 1929 nude by Shelton OE Brownsville. Three Cokers -ft ere in the running the pole wulters went nine feet six and in the jump-off. Miller cleared the bar at 11 reel <md Blair und Archibald tied for second, honors. Judging from the showing of the Blue and White.

ATHLETIC GIRLS LOSETOKEAGYS IN CENTER GAME REIGN IN AQUATIC SPORTS Alfred R.

Hie times of and are ex- cellent considering the fact that the cinder track was very loose and a solid foothold was almost impossible to obtain. Pitt's track and field team defeated Temple, 97 3-1 to 37 1-4, the winners taking 10 of the 15 iirst places. Car- negie Tecli won over P. A. A., 65 to 49.

The pole vault mark was tied and the high jump here was just one-quarter of an inch behind. Terry also has possibilities as a broad jumper. He leaped close to 22 feet but louled as he attempted to run alongside the loose runway and then cut in to hit the mark the last few strides. Each athlete was allowed to enter three events. Woodruff made the most of his chances as he scored wins in the mile, SSO and tlle shot put. A miscalculation resulted in having the mile event extend some two hundred yards beyond the proper finish line. Woodruff's time tor this "mile plus" was When the error was dis- covered, his time for the mile was. set at Fred Miller's marks of 11 feet in the pole vault and flve feet S 1-4 inches <n the high jump were high- lights in tho day's activities.
