The Ashburton Amateur Swimming Club got off a half-mile handicap last evening. The water was extremely cold, and that fact, together with the unsuitable hour of starting (about 6.30), kept down the number of competitors to five and the. spectators to A-ery meagre numbers. ELY A. Woolf (4min.) started off at a steady gait, but his erratic course lost him considerable ground. He was at the home turn first, with E. Beaumont (2min. oOsec) close behind him. J. E. Allen (2min.) and A. McC'allum (2min. 40sec.) reached home the first time round/together. When they turned J. Harris (scratch) was about, 100 yards away. Allen gradually drew away from McCallum and caught Beaumont, but Woolf was persistent and reached home first on tho second round, Allen being a dozen yards behind him and McCallum and Beaumont 10 yards further away. Harris had crept 30 yards closer. • Allen sprinted and was first home., on.the third round, with second and McCallum third, and Harris about 50 yards behind the leader, Beaumont having retired. Allen worked hard for the final lap and won by about;'2o yards from Harris, the determined Woolf just beating McCallum home. Time—l7min. 4sec. Mr S. Baird acted as starter. ; ; ■■ " ■;.. ..'.'■ t ■ ■ rv •'; ■■ j
