Tmack Edmundson V; ' ICTORIES over Idaho, Oregon. Oregon State: the championship of the Pacific Northwest Conference; third place in the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate track and field meet, at By Fred K. Ross Los Angeles; and then another third place in the National Intercollegiate meet at Chicago. That was the record of the University of Wash- ington track team of 1927. Few track seasons in the annals of the University have been so successful as this, arid none have brought more glory to the Husky cinder path men. For a moment, in the national gathering of track stars at Chicago, it seemed that Washington would cop the highest honor that a track team can win. championship of the National Intercollegiates. Jim Charteris. running his last race for Washington, was beaten to the tape just a few feet by an Illinois half-miler. If Charteris had won this race, the Huskies would have nosed out Illinois and won the national track and field title. As it was, Illinois took first with 15 7 10 points, Iowa second with 14 3 4, and Washington third with 14 12. Herm Brix won the shot put. Dean Anderson finished second in the century, Bill Shelley was fourth in the low hurdles, Ed Peltret was sixth in the 440 yard dash, and Charteris took second in his race in the 880 yard event. Eighty- three colleges were represented, and many of them went home without a point, so keen was the com- petition. Coach Hec Edmundson ' s pupils made a brilliant debut by breaking a number of records in the an- Borah, nf Univcrsny of Southern California, leading m the Relay Carnival iillii I w iilfii iliiii iT)imMbmmmm liHi iflTlin 
niul relay carnival on April 0. Among the out- standing performances was a 9.7 race by Borah, of the University of Southern California, in the hun- dred- yartl relay. Mel Faget ran a fine race in the high hurdles but was edged out at the finish by Spaulding. of Montana, in the reccird time of 15.6 seconds. At Corvallis, on May 7. ilie Oregon Aggies were humbled to the tune of 76 ' j to 54 ' j. Brix set a new Northwest record in the shot put. beating his ancient rival. Dixon, by less than an inch. His rec- ord heave was 48 feet 1 K ' inches. Dean Anderson also contributed his bit by equaling the Northwest century mark of 9.8 seconds. The Webfooters were the next to be humiliated by the Husky tracksters. On the following Satur- day they brought the pick of their track team to the Stadium and were decisively beaten, 11 to 54. Charteris, Anderson, Schroeder, McCallum, Shel- ley, Faget. Brix and Nardin all won their events, and Peltret won the 440 yard dash only to be dis- qualified for an infraction of the rules. On the same day, the yearling track team journeyed to Eugene, where they swamped the Oregon Babes. 81 to 4 1 . Idaho was next on the program, and they sur- prised the wise ones by holding Washington to a closer score than either Oregon State or Oregon. A cold drizzle prevented any records being smashed. and lowered the marks in the field events. The final outcome depended on the mile relay, which Wash- ington won by 50 yards. The final count was Washington 69 ' .., Idaho 61 . Bill Shelley led the way in the Northwest meet at Corvallis. on May 28, by setting a new record of 24.6 in the low hurdles. Anderson took his cus- tomary first in the 100-yard and 220 yards; Char- teris won the half-mile: Pelt ret won the 440 dash: and Brix again triumphed over Dixon in the shot put. Washington ' s only regret was losing the mile relay to Oregcin State. Hitherto, the Husky team was undefeated.
