Snow early in the morning foretold difficult conditions for Vassar’s 13th annual Field Day, but the warmly-dressed crowd enjoyed the activities.  In the fence vault, Mildred Vilas ’07 exceeded by a quarter inch, at 4 feet 10 ¾ inches, the standing record of Dora Ellen Merrill ’02, and Inez Milholland ’09 put the eight-pound shot 31 feet 8 7/8 inches, eclipsing the college record of 29 feet 11 ½ inches set in 1902 by Elsa Hillyer White ‘02.

The sophomore class won the day with 43 points, followed by the seniors with 23, the freshmen with 20 and the juniors with 13.     The New York Times
