PENBERTHY COMPARES INTEREST
IN CROSS COUNTRY HERE AND'
AT OTHERS SCHOOLS
Editor, Michigan Daily:
Championship teams are what Michi-
gan wants. The student body demands
a winning team in every branch of
athletic activity. But how are they
going to be developed? We have the
best coaches in the country, but the
coaches alone cannot 'make a'team.;
The material must be there for them
to work with.
I have been asked hundreds of times.
"Why can't Michigan turn out distance
men like Illinois and Cornell?" And
then the questioners will talk of men
like Eddie Carroll and Red Donnelly,
and how Michigan won the Penn two
mile relay in 1916, and broke the in-
Twenty Out For Varsity
There are some interesting statis-
tics which might help to throw a little
out for the varsity. They develop men
report daily at Waterman gym for
Varsity. cross country, and 25 men for
freshman cross country. At Purdue
a small school compared to Michigan,
there are 60 men out every day for
varsity and 40 for freshman cross
country. At Purdue they turn out men
like Furnas and Harrison.
At O. S. U. 150 reported and 80 men
are still out. At Illinois there are 150
out of the varsity. They develop men
like Allman, Dussenbery, Wharton, and
Yates, whom we saw do 9:45 in the
two mile. At Cornell 30 men report
daily for cross country. We all know
the kind of distance men Cornellturns

Reason For Defeat
Our cross country team has not won
a meet in two years. There is no
reason for this miserable showing e-
cept that only a handful of men turn
out each day.
Cross country also develops distance
men for the track team. Last year we
could have been Conference champions
if we had had several good distance
There are ample facilities for every
One who desires to come out for cros
country. There are not cuts' in the
squad to weed out the poorer men, a
in other branches of sport. Twr
squads leave the gym every day, the
fast and the slow squads.
I would hate to think that Michigan
has not as much school spirit .as the
other schools I have mentioned. I
know they have. Perhaps the actual
situation is not realized. We have to
get more men out for cross country
inporder to turn out a successful cr
country team, and in order to provide
good distance men for our track team
in the spring.
Coach Steve Farrell wants and needs
you and is always ready to help you.
It is a challenge to your Michigan
spirit: Let's have at least 50 more
men report for Varsity cross country
and 50 more freshmen for freshman

very prevalent, the party stopping at
one village where every inhabitant
was inflicted with it.
After a few days travel they met a
French priest who warned them of a
war going on directly in their path.
To avoid it they went north through
the out-skirts of the Lolo country.
The Lolos are more like the American
Indian than the Chinese with whom
they carry on continual warfare. At
the pass through the Szechwan Alps
the fighting-is so continuous that no
one makes the trip without a soldier
At Ya-Chou the party obtained a
bamboo raft in which they traveled
150 miles down the river to Chia-Ting,
and then down to Chung King, the
head of steam boat navigation on the
Yangtze. The first 150 miles is the
most dangerous steam boat trip in
the world. Capt. Fleischhauer's party
passed three wrecks on the way down.
From the mouth df the river Capt.
Fleischhauer went to Peking, down
through the Korean ( peninsula, and
after three weeks in Japan sailed for
the United States in July.
