The distance events, despite the failure of the back-markers, were all interesting.

ME Anderson, of Shettleston Harriers won both the half-mile and mile, and the feature of his running in each race was the reserve whch he possessed when it came to the finishing straight. It was his extra bit of pace there that secured him the verdict in each case. J McFarlane of Maryhill, now approaching the veteran stage, ran the mile in something nearer his old form than he has displayed this season, and was unfortunate to be against such a strong finisher as Anderson.
The three miles race attracted a good field, and D Wright, the cross-country champion, and W Neilson, the West of Scotland Harrier, who has done so little since his breakdown in Paris, was much too hot for the rest, and the race lay between this pair.
Wright, who has had the tantalising record of finishing second so frequently, got home by a yard after an exceptionally interesting race. C Freshwater, the youthful Clydesdale Harrier, took part in this event, and ran well, but it did not seem good management on the part of his mentors to allow him to compete over this distance in such company. It must have been an extremely punishing experience for such a young runner.
A new Scottish all-comers record was established in the pole vault by VW Pickard. EH Liddell ran in the yards, the quarter-mile and the relay race, and had an easy win in the quarter. The team was returning to Canada from the Paris Olympic Games and, although other sports meetings attracted individual athletes from the Games, Glenpark was the only one to have a team contest an international fixture where the home crowd could get behind their athletes.
Two of the victories secured by the visitors went to CR Coaffee who won the yards in even time, and the in 23 th sec. Liddell did not oppose Coallee in the furlong, and here the Canadian ran a much better race than the time gives him credit for.
He had the heels of Hester and McLean and on a good track can do much better. In the quarter however we had a glimpse of the real Liddell and this, judging by the interest round the ropes, was the event in which the crowd most wanted to see the Olympic champion do his best. His chief opponent here was AT Christie, the Canadian, who impressed as being a good man over the distance; but when it came to the finish, Liddell passed his man as if he were standing, and had nearly 15 yards in hand at the tape.
He moved with confidence in his power to win that left a profoung impression on the crowd. Good as was his race in the quarter, his effort in the one mile relay race was better. Here bad changing over on the part of the home men left him with a leeway of 10 yards to make up, but he made light of this handicap, and wiped it off, enabling Scotland to win this event by four yards. In the relay, Liddell was clocked to have run yards in 50 th secand his appearance on the Ibrox track next Saturday should be a memorable one.
In the half-mile, the two Scottish representatives finished in front of the Canadian Harris. There was however a surprise here, as CB Mein defeated McRae for first place, thus reversing the championship placings. McRae however does not take kindly to running on grass, if we can judge by his appearances since the holiday meetings began. A new all-comers Scottish record was created in the pole vault, the two Canadians, VW Pickard and JE Francis, easily outstripping the home men in this event.
His time on Saturday was a yard worse than evens, and as he clocked even time when running at the Police and Partick Thistle meetings, it would require something like a world record beater over the distance to to give him a concession like this. Certainly Liddell on present form cannot do it. The Canadian sprinter Coaffee was an interesting character — born in Edmonton in London, his family emigrated when he was eight years old to Canada. There were spectators at Cappielow but at Hampden for the Universities meeting.
Neither of them could match McHattie ,of Mauchline Harriers, who had a handicap of 30 yards, but the Irishman managed to secure second place three yards ahead of Riddell. There was however another problem! Chief interest was attached to the race for the Liddell Trophy over yards, and this produced a rare contest.
Fraser, who won last year, was forward to defend his title, and JM Miller, the Scottish quarter mile champion, was also a starter but the winner was found in Calder of Beith Harriers, who at the meeting promoted by his own club a week ago won the quarter and half-mile championships of Ayrshire. He was off six yards and at the crucial part of the race it did not seem likely that he would win. Calder however had something in reserve and with a final effort he won by a narrow margin. Miller did not finish when he saw he had no chance of winning.
Donald McLaren also found his handicap too much for him and retired from the two races — the open half-mile and the two miles — in which he started. The first named race was won by WH Calderwood of Maryhill Harriers, who, like Calder, showed fine judgment in making his effort and won cleverly.
It was a thrilling finish. The Renfrewshire team race justified its inclusion for the first time, but the cycle races took up too much time, and with the football helped to prolong the meeting. It was a habit with some runners of talent and was usually noted. In the five-a-side competition, Rangers defeated Morton B by one goal to nil, and still had a team out at the Clyde FC professional meeting where they also won, defeating Celtic by three goals to nil.
Next Saturday, when Rangers FC present their usual varied programme with many of the Scottish and English cracks competing will mark the close as far as the amateurs are concerned. Saturday was a quiet day for them, the only meeting of importance being that run at Port-Glasgow under the auspices of the Renfrewshire Cross-Country Association, including Auchmountain, Greenock Glenpark and Wellpark Harriers Clubs.
Roy Hamilton, the Scottish furlong champion, was a competitor as a Glasgow Harrier in the yards which he won without difficulty in a slow time, due largely to the condition of the track. Hamilton did not take part in the yards championship, a race which fell to his clubmate, JM Bryans, in the slow time of 26 seconds. Glasgow Harriers won the one mile relay race in 4 min 7 sec, but this success was due to the great running of Roy Hamilton in the second furlong.
He wiped out a deficit of six yards and converted it into a lead of ten yards. Ther Eric Liddell Trophy race failed to attract more than three competitors. The winner was W McLaughlin, Springburn Harriers, who returned 53 th sec from 14 yards — comparatively the best performance of the meeting.
