BIG RACE TODAY.
Cross Country Club Will Hold Its An-
nual Spring Race This After-
noon at 3:30 P. M. . Good
List of Starters.
This afternoon at 3:30 occurs thes an-
nual spring cross country race. For-
ty-three men have entered for the con-
test and it promises to be an excit-
ing affair. All C. C. C. men are
barred, and everyone who has even
had any experience in runing or has
shown up particularly well in prac-
tice will be started on scratch. Those
whose experience has been limited
will be given 45 seconds handicap.
The list of those who will start from
scratch is as follows: R. A. Mead,
H. P. Ramey, E. J. Creighton, E. E.
Dorris, O. F. Grimm, H. Allen, A. C.
Clapp, I. H. Hunt, C. M. Gundry, I.
H. Smith, W. C. Packard, S. B. Lamb,
W. C. Knight, F. R. Baylis, R. S.
Schmidt, o. E. Hunt, E. M. Keys,
R. M. Teele, J. Hawkins, H. H. low-
ard, A. Nagelvoort, J. W. Bell, V. C.
Randolph, R. D. Richardson, G. W.
The folliwing will be given the han-
dicap: J. F. Preston, F. R. Lowles, L.
A. Hutchins, F. J. Parker, J. D. Price,
A. E. Carey, R. Solfisburg, E. W.
Dales. J. M. Mackey, C. A. Millis, H.
P. Rowe, L. W. Schuette, F. J. Cro-
gan, F. B. Hannum, B. J. Lugers.
Litle is known of the ability of the
contestants and it is impossible to
make any predictions as to the re-
sult. Ramey the half-miler is the most
prominent of the men who will run,
but it is doubtful if he will be able
to negotiate the long distance in the
mud. The right to wear the Club em-
blem will be conferred upon the two
men who finish first and second.
The race will be started promptly
at 3:30 and all contestants must be
ready at that time. Anyone desiring
to enter who has not already done so
may give his name to C. E. Hayes,
clerk of the course, this afternoon.
The relay men at Ferry Field are
earnestly praying for warm weather,
but in the meantime they are contin-
uing the routine training in spite of
the chilly blasts which sweep across
Trainer Fitzpatrick expresses him-
self as very well satisfied with the
condition of the men. Although he
will be unable to get nuch of a line
on the team until after Saturdays
race, he is inclined to believe that it
will be considerable faster than last
year's championship outfit, but thinks
that they will have to go faster this
year in order to return to Ann Arbor
as two-time winners. If Cornell sends
her four mile team, they will undout-
edly be Michigan's most formidable
rivals, but it is not known as yet
whether they will compete. Yale,
whose team finished second to Mich-
igan last year has a better team this
year and they must be reckoned as
In view of the way in which the
other men are showing up, Fitzpatrick
and Kellogg have decided that it
would not be fair to put Coe on the
team without giving him a try-out;
consequently the lanky westerner will
have to go in the race Saturday and
fight for a place. This makes the con-
test more exciting than ever, and it
should be one of the best races ever
seen in the field.
Trainer Fitzpatrick has decided that
Hahn, Rose, Schule, and Dvorak will
be taken to Philadelphia with the
team, if they are in shape by that
'03 LAW STUDENT DEAD.
Allen Werton Elsworth, a member
of last year's law class, died in a hos-
pital at Spokane, Wash., April 9. The
preceeding Saturday he underwent an
operation for appendicitis, and while
he rallied from the first shock, com-
plications set in that made the strug-
gle for life a hopeless one. The de-
ceased was connected with the Spo-
