Case Speaks Before Journal Club
"The Permian in South Africa" was
the topic of an address delivered last
night before the Geology Journal club
by Prof. E. C. Case, of the geology de-
partment., Professor Case spoke of his
research in the Karoo region and in
the vicinity of the Victoria falls of,
the Zambesi river.
runners from each team are allowed
to compete in the classic.
Besides the Conference schools.
Ames, Ohio Wesleyan, M. A. C., and
Kansas will enter teams in the meet.
In the past Ames has been represented
by powerful harrier teams and it is a
sure bet that the school from Iowa will
give Michigan something to worry;
about Saturday as they are represent-
ed by an experienced aggregation this
season. Ohio State will be Michigan's
other big worry. In an early esason
meet, the Buckeyes succeeded in nos-i
ing out the Wolverines by four points!
ut the defeat was largely due to Harry
Davis turning an ankle in the early
part of the race. In this same race the
Ohio State captain, a runner with a
goodly string of first places to his
credit was unable to finish te hrace
due to pains in his sides. So it can
be seen that Ohio State will enter a
stronger team than the one that defeat-
ed Michigan in the early season meet.
The squad will walk around the hilly
Ohio' State course tomorrow so that
they will not be on unfamiliar ground'
in the run Saturday.
M. A. C. outweighed by Detroit and

Schultz machine last Saturday, wonr

were also pleased to call a FLUKE.
