The Essendon Harriers were drawn against Ennismore in the inter-club contests on Saturday; but owing to Ennismore disbanding, Essendon had a walk-over. Their own chaps ran the various races, however, and the following won:-100 yds. : C. McFadgen, with W. Burgess and H. Weir in the places. One mile was won by A. E. Butler. A. West and A. J May were second and third. The 440 yds. went to C. McFadgen, followed by H. Weir and W. Burgess. 120 yds. hurdle went to S. Nicholls, with A. Hosking second. A. P. Hosking jumped 16ft. 11 in. in the long jump, and, S. Nicholls and L. F. Morris dead heated for second with 16ft. 2in.

It would seem, from the following list of names of young men who have enlisted from the Essendon harriers and St. Thomas harriers, that these clubs have set an example that might well be followed by other sporting bodies. Those who have gone from the ranks of the Essendon harriers are: D. Buzolich, C. Burdeu, R. C. Baizin, G. G. Chambers, R. Johnson, J. C. Lamond, L. Morris, H. F. Prunty, R. Pattison, L. J. B. Relph, G. Stevenson, P. E. Titchener, L. Williamson and F. H. Wickham.

St. Thomas are represented by H. A. Barker, J. Bowtell-Harris, S. Bowman, M. P. Gatliff, P. Hutton, R. J. Jacobson, A. King, R. Ransom and N. Wheatley.
