CROSS COUNTRY SQUAD
IN TRIANGULAR IMEET
CAPTAIN PENBERTHY HEADS MEN
AGAINST INDIANS AND OHIO
RUNNERS
Six men will leave this morning for
Urbana to compete with Ohio State
and Illinois in the triangle cross coun-
try race on Saturday. Captain Pen-
berthy, although still bothered with a
sore ankle, will be among those to
go, as will Chute, Whittemore, Stand-
ish, Marston and Bowen. These men
were the first to finish in the meet
against Purdue last Saturday.
Coach Steve Farrell has been giv-
ing his men light work this weel as he
thinks that they are in fine condition
for the Buckeyes and Indians. Steve
could take 10 men to Urbana with
him but decided that the other ;4:
would not finish as they did not do
well against the Boilermakers. In
the meet tomorrow the first 5 men
from each team count in the scoring.;
The race will be run in the morn-
ing and in the afternoon the team
will witness the game between Michi-
gan and Illinois on the gridiron. They
will also return on the same train
that the football men do.
While the Varsity is at Urbana, the
remainng men will have a trial, run
over the five-mile course :here at 10:30
tomorrow morning. The first six men
to complete the course will be taken
to East Lansing on Nov. 5 to combfte
against the Aggie reserve team. This
promises to be a gala day at the
Farmer institution. Invitations have
been sent out to every college, uni-
versity and normal school in the state,
to send men to this meet. After the
run all the contestants will be guests
at the football game between the Ag-
gies and South Dakota.
At the same time that the reserves
are started off, the freshmen will al-
so start their trial run. This is the
next to the last time for the, yearlings

to try out before the Freshmen cross
country run which will be held on
Nov. 12. Because of this trial of
Saturday, there will be a workout for
the freshmen tonight.
GOLFERS TO PLAY
. ON PURDUE GREEN
Capt. W. H. Ingham, '21, A. L.
Welch, '22E, H. W. Slaughter, '24E, and
E. T. Broderick, '24, comprise the per-
sonnel of the Michigan golf team which
left last evening for games with Pur-
due, this afternoon and Illinois, Sat-
urday morning. This is the first game
of the season for the Michigan team
and by the low scores the team has
made in.practice sessions over the golf
course they will give a good account
of themolves. They have been prac-
ticing hard for the past three weeks
at first in preparation for the Ohio
game which was canceled, and, later
on, in preparation for the game with
Illinois. The game with Purdue was
not assured until last Tuesday and
came as an added incentive to* the
Michigan'golfers. Little is knowA of
the strength of the Boilermakers out-
side of the fact that they tied Illinois
last Saturday by a score of 6-6.
Following this game Professor True-
blood's golf artists will embark for
Urbana where they will clash with the
Indian golfers . Saturday morning.
Michigan will be well represented at
Illinois this week end, for besides the
golf and football games, there is a
triple cross country meet with Ohio
and Illinois. Both Purdue and Illinois
are rated high in Conference golf cir-
cles but Professor Trueblood has con-
fidence in the Michigan team. Both of
thesematches will be over an 18 hole
course. After the game, the golf team
will witness the football struggle be-
tween Michigan and Illinois.

Hearst Follolver
'Attacks History
By Van -Tyne
(By Agnes Holmnquist)
In a series of articles in the Chicago
Herald and Examiner in July, Charles
C. Miller pretended to present some
"serious and essential facts about the
writings of American history in the
new spirit of British-American amity,"
attacking six text books on American
history, one of which was "A History
of the United States" by Prof. C. H.
VanTyne, head of 'the department of
history, and Mr. A. C. McLaughlin,
head of the history department at the
University of Chicago. Motivated by
a purpose hardly creditable to his pa-
per, Mr. Miller declared that the books
were obviously written to denational-
ize the American spirit. To this at-
tack Professor Van Tyne paid no at-
tention, for, as he says, "I dislike con-
troversy, and, knew that no spirit of
fairness would impel the Hearst pa-
pen to give me a hearing. Mr. Miller
clearly showed that he was actuated
by a hatred of England, a motive that
Hearst notoriously encourages."
Van Tyne Replies
The articles in the Chicago Examin-
er were followed by a letter to the

Bits of Sport

New York Times which Professor Van
Tyne promptly and conclusively ans-
wered. But Mr. Miller, evidently still
finding material for argument in the
subject, sent another letter to the
Times which was sent back. This let-
ter he enlarged upon and it was print-
ed inthe Examiner, Sunday, Oct. 12.
It appears that Mr. Miller has mis-
taken the two forms, history and rom-
ance. He begins with a deliberate
misrepresentation as he speaks of the
whole six text books as "recently re-
vised." Professor Van Tyne, says in
answer, "Our book appeared in 1911,
years before the war led to any efforts
to rewrite text books, as Mr. Miller
imagines, for propaganda purposes,
and it has never been revised, merely
brought down to date."
Several passages are quoted by Mr.
Miller from the Van Tyne and Mc-
Laughlin book to , substantiate his
theory that the histories are deadening
to the patriotic morale of the
school children. Such as: "It is
hard for us to realize how ignor-
ant and superstitious were most of
the earlier colonists of America;"
"Patrick Henry, a gay, unprosper-
ous, and hitherto unknown country
lawyer;" "As the British soldiers who
had left Boston at midnight neared
Lexington in the early morning of
April 19, 1775, Adams and Hancock
stole away across the fields."
"Try to Write Truth?
"How could we speak of Patrick
Henry so?" says Professor Van Tyne.
"Why, simply because that was the
truth, and we were not writing Hen-
ry's obituary but merely trying in our
humble way to tell the American
youth the facts about our past. The
same motive made us say that 'Adams
and Hancock stole away across the
fields.' They did and we saw no rea-
son to conceal it."
In another place Professor Van
Tyne tells of how the little American
band fled, leaving their dying com-
panions. According to Mr. Miller, If
the colonists at any time did have to
leave their wounded it should be kept
from the schoolboy rather than di-
minishing his idea of our forefathers'
bravery. Professor Van Tyne says,
"They say they fled themselves, and
they were merely being sensible, to
get out of harm's way when it was
plain they could do no good by stay-
ing."
In conclusion he says, "I supose that
in the interest of the 'preservation of
the heroic old American History' we
should conceal the results of modern
historical scholarship and perhaps in-
vent a few disagreeable yarns about
the British which would embitter the
relations between England and Amer-
ica and perhaps make it easier in fu-
ture years to plunge the two coun-
tries into war and incidentally wreck
the destiny of democracy."

Ludy Langer, one of the greatest
swimmers ever developed in this coun-
try announced Ils intention, a few
days ago, of retiring from active com-
petition in the sport. He closed his
career with one of the most remark-
able feats ever recorded in the history
of swimming, when at Neptune Beach.
San Francisco, he won a 500 metre
handicap in the actual time of 6:48:2-5,
beating the old record held by Norman
Ross by 7:2-5 seconds. He was the
first swimmer to use the four beat
crawl, from which the new six beat
crawl was developed. Although retir-
ing from active competition, Langer
will still remain interested in the sport
and will spend his spare time in am-
ateur coaching.
Richards and Tilden engaged in one
of their hair-raising, nip and tuck
battles.last Sunday in another of their
contests for the American committee
for devastated France. The score was
6-0, 4-6, 7-5. In the first set Rich-
ards did not have a chance to get start-
ed, but got under way at the beginning
of the second set. Febm then on he
made things quite interesting for the
champion. Although hard pressed in
all their post-season matches, Tilden
has been able to keep his record clean;
his greater experience bearing down
his youthful opponent time and time
again.
Walter Higgins, star track man of
the University of Columbia, and holder
of the national A. A. U. indoor two mile
title, has resigned the captaincy of the
Blue and White cross country team.
Lack of time for practice was given as
the reason.
In a recent exhibition tennis match
between Vincent Richards and William
Tilden for the benefit of the American
committee for devastated France, Til-
dents racket, used during the play,
was put up for auction. It brought
$85. One of the balls used in the
match sold for $35.
All captains of major sports but one
play on the Varsity 'football team at
Harvard. The first string quarterback
is Keith Kane the football leader while
Arthur Conlan the baseball captain is
the third choice for this position.
George Owen, right half, heads the
hockey team while Kiske Brown, the
track leader, plays right guard. The
one exception is Louis McCagg, the
captain of the crew.
Cornell's polo team is practicing
daily and will continue all winter, go-
ing indoors during the colder months.
They are entered in the intercollegiate
toutnament held in the spring as are
the teams of Yale, Princeton, Harvard,
Pennsylvania, West Pbint, and Nor-
wich.
There are a large number of men out
for the various teams at Cornell. For
polo 90 men have reported and as
there are only a limited number of
ponies, the men have to wait until they
are assigned afternoons for practice.
Lacrosse is drawing 40 men out for
the squad every afternoon. More than
90 men came out to the initial practice
for the wrestling team. In this sport
Cornell held the intercollegiate cham-
pionship for seven years but the last
three years they have been second to
Penn State, however they have not fin-
ished lower than second place since
1909.
