In Horseshoe Finalst
Although delayed during most of
the fall season by inclement wea-

tournament have been completed
with Borg emerging winner by vir-

the final round of play.
Borg defeated Kelly, 1927 cham-

retaining his accuracy in the finals,
took two straight games from Tal-

score for the final round of play

Six Wolverine cross-country rita-
ners, without the services of Cap-
tain Wuerfel, will leave toni Flt
with Coach Farrell for ratison
where they will compete against
the other Big Ten schools for the
Conference title Saturday morn-
This title has been won for the
last four years by a strong Badger
team, but this year Iowa will enter
as heavy favorites. The Hawkeyes
with a team of sophomores have
beaten Illinois, Minnesota, .,and
Wisconsin in dual meets this year,
while Illinois, has gained a victory
over the Wolverines and Ohio in a
triangular meet at Columbus. The
other cross-country squads in the
Big Ten are not strong this year.
To Reach Madison Friday
A knee injury will keep the star
Wolverine captain at home during
this meet, but Michigan will be
well represented by Monroe,
Aubrey, Benson, Austin, Justin and
Grunow. This team will arrive at
the Badger school Friday morning,
and with weather permitting will
jog over the five mile Varsity
course that afternoon to get the
lay of the land.
Inclement weather has kept the
Varsity in the Field house for the
past few days, the team being
somewhat handicapped due to this,
but Coach Farrell says that a
cross-country race held in the kind
of weather which is prevailing at
present is always in doubt as some
men run better in mud than others
of greater speed.





then this is the smartest suit in town. In style, fabric and
tailoring it lives up to its pedigree of quality. The man
who watches his every dollar carefully can invest in it
with confidence. He can be sure of getting his money's
worth-and even more-for it's a Famous Fifty.
