THE KENTUCKY KERNEL
Wildcats Conquer Vanderbilt Harriers in Dual Meet by Score of
(By Wayman Thoniasson)
Cloudy skies and misty rain damp-
ened the ardor of track enthusiasts
gathered at Nashville last Saturday
to see Jack Chesney, of Vanderbilt, a
Middlesboro, Ky., boy, try to defeat
William Gess, of Kentucky, in the
headline attraction of a dual meet
which Kentucky won by the score of
59 to 58. It was the first time in 20
years that Coach Anderson's Commodores had lost a dual meet, and to
say those knights of the B. V. D. died
hard is putting it mild.
Listen, my children, and you shall

"Coming events cast their shadows

that, Gess had received more publicity

Kentucky's victory last week over
the Commodores was not as decisive
as it should have been, for the 'Cats
should have had ten more points to
their credit and the Commodores five
points less. This week they hope to
show better form in the two events
that they lost, namely, the
relay and the mile run. So far this
week the men have been making better time in their sprints and runs
and in the meet tomorrow they will
