Photographs of different track events at the same meet appear with the captions, "The Start of a Major Upset Picture shows Sam Klopstock, figure in white, hitting the first hurdle in yesterday's high hurdle race at the Coliseum. Bob Lyon, No. 22, went on to win for the Trojans, Klopstock taking second. Clarence Berry, third, is No. 11, while Gene Culp, No. 5, finished under orders a couple of minutes after the race had ended. He hit a hurdle and ran thereafter with only one shoe one [sic]. The time of 14.7s. tied the meet record and the result, due to Klopstock's miscalculation, was a surprise.

At center, a Stanford vaulter is captured jumping over the bar during a pole vault attempt. He is seen from a low-angle view. His arms stretch over his head and towards camera as his torso faces towards the ground. The bar stretches directly beneath him. Along the bottom edge, two men stand at right and center; only the backs of their heads are visible. The vaulter's pole extends vertically at center from the bottom edge. The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum's seats line the background along the bottom edge at left.
An Oxy high-jumper is captured mid-air knocking over the bar during a jump attempt. The landing pit sprawls along the bottom edge. Beyond it, left-of-center, the high jumper is on his descent. His chest faces the camera as he head angles slightly downward towards the right and one of his legs stretches up to the left. He stretches both arms wide.
