Captain Clark Chamberlain Will
Lead State Team Against
Michigan Runners.
Nine Men to Make up Wolves'
Contingent under Direction
of Ken Doherty.
Michigan's Varsity harriers will
leave early this morning for East
Lansing where they will encounter
the Michigan State cross country
runners in the third meet of the
season for the Wolverines. The run
which is scheduled to start at 11:15
will be held over the Sprtan's three
and a half mile course.
The nine men who will make up
the Michigan contingent will be un-
der the direction of Ken Doherty,
freshman track coach, as Coach
Charley Hoyt is in the East with
the grid team for the Princeton
game. The men who will start this
morning's run are Captain Wolfe,
Howell, Hill, Fitzgibbons, McManus,
Braden, Ostrander, Bedenik and
Chamberlain Will be Strong.
According to Doherty the outcome
of today's meet is very difficult to
predict as both teams are of about
equal strength. The Spartans have
their star runner of the past two
years back again, Captain Clark
Chamberlain, national intercollegi-
ate cross country champion.
Last year the Michigan harriers
defeated the State aggregation 22.
to 33. Clark Chamberlain captured
first place followed by Austin, How-
ell, Wolfe and Fitzgibbons of the
1n the first meet of the present
season Hoyt's team outdid the De-
troit Y.M.C.A. 16 to 46, with Howell
capturing the winning honors. Last
Saturday the Wolves were taken
into camp by a strong contingent
from the Michigan State Normal 22
to -33.
State Beat Butler, 19-36.
Coach Lauren Brown of the Spar-
tans has a great deal of confidence
in his team after the 19 to 36 drub-
bing it handed out to Butler at In-
dianapolis last Saturday. Captain
Chamberlain~showed that he is back
in form by wining the race in rec-
ord time. He was 300 yards ahead
of the Butler man who followed
him across the finish line. Five of
the first six men to finish were
Spartans. Pongrace, O'Connor, Hurd
and Wissner were the other four to
come in among the leaders. Pon-
grace and Hurd are sophomores and
much depends on their showing as
to the outcome of today's meet.
Varsity Will Practice Every
Afternoon and Freshmen
Two Evenings a Week.
First call for fencing candidates,
both Varsity and freshmen, was
made late last night by Coach
Johnstone. About 20 fencers of lasf
year's Varsity and freshman squads
are expected to report Monday af-
ternoon at 3:30 for the opening
turnout of'the season.
Varsity practice will be held

every afternoon from 3:30 o'clock
to G. The squad will be divided in-
to groups as to weapons and wil'
begin immediate practice for the
coming season. Captain Gorman,
star of two divisions last year, has
graduated and Coach Johnstone
expects difficulty in filling his
Frosh fencing is scheduled for
Monday and Wednesday evenings
from 7:30 to 9:00 o'clock. Coach
Johnstone has set this time so that
the yearling practice will not con-
flict with the regular's workouts.
Tennis players will move Indoors
:starting Monday with the Xarsity
under the supervision of Johnstone
too. The Varsity- members will
workout in doubles combinations
in an effort to strengthen Michi-
gan's doubles play. These daily
practices will be from 1 to 3 o'clock
and Coach Johnstone expects the
10 members of the Varsity squad

Michigan, Iowa Meet Outside
Opposition; Purdue Favored
Over Maroon Team.
Whatever else may be the result
of today's Big Ten games, one thing
is certain, and that is that the title
contenders will be narrowed down
to two teams.
Wisconsin and Minnesota, both
tied with Northwestern at the top
of the heap, will clash at Minne-
apolis 4n the feature battle of the
day. One of the teams probably
Wisconsin, will be eliminated from
further consideration, but there is
also a strong possibility that both
will fall by the wayside through
a tie score. Minnesota's strong
backfield and superior reserve
strength makes them a slight fa-
Ohio State Should Beat Indiana.
Ohio State should have little
trouble in disposing of the Indiana
threat in the Hoosier's homecom-
ing battle, although Coach Haye's
boys are not to be taken too light-
ly. Their 32-6 victory over Chicago
last week stamped them as a po-
tentially strong outfit.
There seems to be little doubt
that Coach Hanley's Wildcat's will
be able to at least duplicate the
score of35-0 registered by Michi-
gan in their battle with the Ilini
last week, and remain at the top
of the championship scramble. It
looks like a very, very bad after-
noon for the Zuppkemen.
Purdue Stronger Than Chicagb.
Unless they are able to display
a great deal more than they have
in any of their early games, Coach
Stagg's hapless Maroons seem to
be headed for another disaster at
the hands of Purdue. Kiser's men,
after being dumped by Wisconsin
in an early season encounter, seem
to have hit their stride and will be
a tough team to beat for the re-
mainder of the season and much
too tough for Chicago.
Iowa, although th.ey have a per-,
fect record so far this season with
regards to points scored, should be
able to break into the scoring col-
umn at last against George Wash-
ington University and possibly walk
off the field on the long end of the
score. However, their intersection-
al foes cannot be considered a set-
up for anyone.
Michigan, the only other team
engaging ' a non-conference foe,
should have little trouble in dis-
posing of the Tiger threat at

day. It was considered doubtful
if he would be in shape for services
in the backfield this week-end.

Star sophomore halfback, who will start in the Princeton game to-
day, is considered one of the best ground gainers on the Michigan squad.
Fay is expected to repeat his excellent performance of the Illinois game
when he scored two of Michigan's five touchdowns. He also played a
bang-up game on defense.
