MADISON, Oct. 17.--Michigan's
Varsity cross country team went down
to defeat at the hands of the Wiscon-
sin harriers, 33-22 here this morning.
The Wolverine runners were fav-
ored to win the race but allowed the
Badger harriers to take a command-
ing lead and then were unable to over-
take them..
Chapman finished first for Wison-
sin in 15:28 which is excellent time
for the three mile course at this time
of the year. Ted Hornberger was the
first Wolverine to score taking second
honors, Captain Kubly an d Elleson of
Wisconsin finished in a iC for third
place and Schutt of Wisconsin took
Captain Roy Callahan fiished in
sixth place followed by Briggs and
Reinke who took seventi and eighth
respectively. Oumbeck of Wisconsin
came in ninth and Iskende ian of Mich-
igan crossed the line in tenth place.
Baker, Jung and Hills of Michigan
failed to place, only the first five men
from each school to finish counting in
the scoring.

The primary motive for ihe vacation

No definite arrangements have yet
