Feb. 13.—Dave Cald well. the Boston A. A. middle distance runner, surprised a large crowd of athletic followers at the annual games of Company E, Thirteenth Regiment, in its Brookl.v armory yesterday, by winning the 500-yard "Brooklyn han dicap" in a sensational finish from James E. ("Ted ") Meredith. 800-meter Olympic champion and world's record holder, competing for the University of Pennsylvania. Starting with the smallest allowance, two yards, the for mer Cornell star covered the 500 yards in the remarkable time of 50 3-5 sec onds, and were it not for the fact that he had a. handicap he would have a new indoor record to his credit. Inches only separated Caldwell and Aleredith at the tape and it was a question in the minds of many spectators whether Cadlwell had passed the sturdy little Quaker. Meredith undoubtedly finished un der the present record figures, but he cannot get credit for a new mark for the reason that the amateur rules prescribe that a man must break the tape first in order to get credit for a time-eclipsing performance.
