The track at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum spans the width of the bottom edge and stretches back on an angle to the left. In the mid-ground, several Oxy and S.C. sprinters approach the finish line, running towards camera. Ed House is rightmost among the runners. He bounds in mid-air as his body breaks the finish tape. Behind and to the left of him in the Oxy uniforms are J. V. "Bud" Nash and Milton Nash. The trailing U.S.C. runners are Herschel Smith and Charles Sauers. Two unidentified Oxy sprinters are leftmost. Along the inside of the track at right, meet officials and athletes watch the race from the sidelines. Farther down the track, at left, hurdles line the infield. The stadium's stands stretch across the background.
