Earlier In the dny Fritz Mona-han, Mona-han, Mona-han, sensational Villanova College sophomore, had ttreaked to victory over handicapped rivals in the 100-yard 100-yard 100-yard dash in 9,b seconds, thereby equalling the A. O. H. and Northeast Northeast Field record established by Muhlenberg College's George Majer-Icfe Majer-Icfe Majer-Icfe in 1931. And Just about the time that Monahan was recording his century century sprint, that former world's decathalon champion now competing competing for the college of Osteopathy, Harold Osborn, was clearing 5 feet i inches in the stand'ng high jump. Since this event had never before been contested in the A. O. H. Games, Osborn's , performance created a meet record, although he failed to better Leo Goehring's accepted accepted world's mark by more than three inches. Osborn later came back to the field, but in the running running high jump another's handicap proved too much for him ond he could place only second. But where Osborn failed by an rye-lash rye-lash rye-lash to score a double triumph, Carl Hickey scored one by as close a margin. He sped to the novice 100-yard 100-yard 100-yard tape first by a twinkling, and then came back to annex his special event, the broad jump, and a clearance of 23 feet I'i Inches from scratch.
