THE KENTUCKY KERNEL PAGE SIX Wildcats Conquer Vanderbilt Harriers in Dual Meet by Score of GESS WINS HALF-MIL- E RACE BY WIDE MARGIN (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 hear Of these marvelous exploits of some modern Reveres. "Coming events cast their shadows before them," said the prince falling off of his horse. But, regardless of that, Gess had received more publicity before the meet than did Henry Ford when he made a lady out of Lizzie. Carr Creek ran wild over the country; Gess was supposed to run roughAnd, since there shod over Vandy. is nothing so insipid to an Anderson-coache- d Commodore as defeat, the boys from "deah ole Vandy" were singing some right pretty blues.

The foul was granted and, although Gess won, he was disqualified in the quarter-mile he left no In the room for doubt and ran so far ahead of the Commodores that they had no chance to use this "touch system." He looked like Bubbling Over in a derby trial and this is no reflection on the horse. Wildcats All Stars The other heroes of the day, if the public doesn't take their Gess and Lindbergh straight, are Root and Dohrman, reading from left to right, a hurdler and a Root won both hurdle races at an easy gallop, coming in under wraps. Yes, it was cold, but Dohrman cantered the two miles in 10 minutes, 26 seconds, nnd was taking a shower when the Vandy entry came in fagged to the gills. They should have a new lighting system at the Commodore institution, since the Vandy almost lost their way that night. to do with the But, what has that price of eggs ? West jumped 21 feet, 3 inches to take the broad jump, and Roberts and Rhodemeyer dabbled with the boys in the pole vault to win without taking off their sweat clothes. "Strongheart" Kavanaugh heaved the shot 39 feet to win. (No, girls, this is not the Strongheart of the movies although they are both brave). Owens lost a tough race to Bailey in the mile, being nosed out at the finish by a yard or two. This is the first track team Shively has coached and it is the best Kentucky has ever known.

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.
