Inter-Club Sprint.A feature the evening was the inter-club challenge 100 yds. sprint, which was decided at halftime. This provided a great triumph for Walter Jackson, the Aberdeen centre-forward. Although, the first man home, alone was count, there was to have been three runners a-side, but Lochhead's injury in the first half of the game compelled his withdrawal from the race. Accordingly, the English club representation was cut down to two - Frank McPherson, repined to be the fastest forward in England, and Willie Spence. An injury compelled the withdrawal of Alec. Reid from the original Aberdeen selection, but his place was taken by Robert Bruce, and the other representatives were Walter Jackson and James Smith. The men got off to a capital start. Jackson (on the stand side) was slow to get into his stride, and at halfway McPherson held a slight lead. From that stage there was a magnificent race, and Jackson came away with a remarkable burst to breast the tape about 18 inches ahead of McPherson, who in turn was about two feet in front of Spence, with Smith and Bruce close up. Jackson's success was received with great enthusiasm. The time returned was 11 seconds, which reflected a remarkably good performance in face of a strong wind and heavy going.
