JACKSON MODEST His victory, moreover was popular, ..became his, modest personality had made a strong ImpieESlon In even national camp here. The meeting shows that the veter ans must be reconciled ito the young- er men taking their places Shep pard, who at London was king of the track, found that youths w ere his i betters In the Ralph Hose, though saying, a former Olympic-.winner aud record holder- had to take second place to P. at putting the ahot (beat hand) the winner en tablished a' of. approxi- mately fifty feet, four iuches.

OAWfi BROWN When they lined'up for the start was so anxious that he beat the pistol. He dived into the tank and had to be pulled out.- When' the pistol sounded in second line-up .the six bodies hit the '..water with one splaah. The Hawaiian was easily ahead and half way down .the tank, turned to survey the field; His near- est rival was ten feet'behind. Kahan- amuku let up after that and seemed to swini leisurely. The others extend ing themselves to the limit, gained on him, although he grasped the plat- form two yards in advance of Hea.lv. An ovation, wna given, the brown brother, .when he .passed along 'the platform to the dressing room, men of the various nationalities slapping him on the back hands.

Stockholm, July 10-The imal ot the metre races .will rank after the SOD metres flat race on Monday as the greatest race thus far m the Olyrrpic games. Bouin, France, and H. Finland, ;had their own way. It was a wonderful struggle between them for the vic- tory. E. Hutson, England, who secured third place, passed George V Bonhag at the last moment and cross- ed the tape a foot ahead of the Am- erican runner. The Finlandcr and the Frenchman were five :yacds ahead ol ihe field on the fourth lap Fifty yards on the sixth lap 110 yards on the ninth lap 150 yards pti the tenth lap and finished 160 y'aiJs ahead. The Finn led for seven laps, hut the Frenchman was a yard ahead on the twelfth lap when; the Finn spurt- id, on tlie home stretch and crossed tlie tape a yard in front of the who threw tip ing. 'A harilcr struggle has soldoiii been seen on tlie cinder, path. Mclviii W. Sheppurd, 1. A. A. C., drew the inside place lor the start wi'i-li A. Arntiuil, France; .lolin i'aul .Jones, Cornell; Oscar K. Mcdluinl, Boston, and A. N. S. Jackson, Kngland. In onler to get to the front Jack- son had to run. round, lour, men on tile last lap wijich.he did at the final turn. OXFOHD MAN'S BRILLIANT Sl'IUNT, '1'he racu in the last hundred yards was a magnificent one. Until tiie runners had reached within ien yarils of tlie tape, the event might have be- longed citiier to Jackson or to Abel R. Kiviat, Irish-American A. the Oxford Universitv Athlete fairlv leaped ahead and carried oft tlie vic- tory. Tiifi Frcnclunan Arnaud and the three Swedes, J. Zander, E. Bjorn and AVide, made i.lie running in the first lap. E. Yon Sigcl; Germany; made a hard trv but outran himself and was left behind in the stretch. At the beginning of tiic second tap, the onier o! ruimers was, Arnaud, Liu and France; Von Sigel, Germany at, Hedlaml, Sheppard, U1. S. who were all iii a bunch. FINISHED STRONO At the beginning of the' last lap the order was Jones, Kiviai., Shep- pard, Taher and Jackson. The- hopes of the Americans ran high when they: saw that Jackson, whom all feared, was eight feet behind the first man, but in the first .stretch of the lap, Jackson began to gain, which he con- tinued to do to the finish. JACKSON FAINTED Jackson was more exhausted when he dropped to the ground nitei the race than any competitor has been at this meeting. He fainted and doc- tors came (o his assistance and worked over him for half an hour be- fore he gained stiength enough to stand. KIVIAT WAS COURTEOUS Kiviat ran up to Jackson after the race, .stretched out his hand to shake but Jackson, waved hiin off. Many of the spectifors thought thai} thfl refusal of Jackson to shake hands was on account of had feeling, .but Jackson sent a message to the YIU erican team afterward saying that he did not what he was doing because he was so placed out and ihat he would cill on the Americans to explain the" matter to them later.
