Nine of Men Composing the Squad
Have Played Together; Hold

Michigan Runners Doped to Win From
Competing Teams in Last
Race of Year
The Varsity cross country team will
leave for Detroit this morning at 8:10
o'clock, to run in the annual Belle
Isle cross country race held on the
Belle Isle course. The same team
that competed in the intercollegiate
hill and dale race at New Haven last

Several weeks ago word was receiv-
ed from the coast that Leland Stan-
ford University was making efforts to
get a rugby team composed of South
African students from the University
of Michigan to come and play them
during the Christmas vacation. Noth-
ing definite could be learned about
the matter, however.
Yesterday the South African stu-
dents petitioned the senate council for
permission to make the trip. At a
special meeting of the council called
for the purpose of deciding the ques-
tion, the South Africans were grant-
ed the petition with the understand-
ing that the team does not officially
represent the University.
There are altogether 24 South Afric-
ans in the University. A rugby team
consists of 15 men and nine of the
Michigan students have played to-
gether before. The prospective team
has been practicing steadily for the
past few weeks, hoping to receive the
necessary authority. The game with
the Californians wilk be a big attrac-
tion, since both teams understand the
game thoroughly. Rugby, as it is play-
ed in South Africa, is the favorite fall
pastime of the coast.
Those in charge at Ann Arbor re-
fuse sto give out aniy positive state-
ments saying that complete plans have
not been formulated yet. The final
word must come from Leland Stan-
ford and it is expected here some time
this week. From the present indica-
tions, however, it is possible that the.
South Africans will leave for the
coast Dec. 18.

Saturday will enter the run.
The race will be a three and one-
half mile jaunt around the regulai
course, starting at 12 o'clock. This
should be rather easy for the Wolver-
ine harriers who contested six miles
last Saturday, and since the ground
v5 comparatively level they will not
have to call on the endurance re-
quired in the intercollegiate chase.
Chances for a Michigan win are ex-
ceedingly good. The team will go
against about the same class of run-
ners encountered in the state meet at
Lansing, which the Maize and Blue
captured so handily. It goes without
saying that Eddie Carroll should take
individual honors in view of his past
record, and with the other members
of the team running up to the form
they have set in previous meets dur-
ing the season they should add the
third leg to the cup offered for the
team winning the meet three years.
In case Michigan wins today it will
be the third consecutive victory in the
Thanksgiving day meet.
It is very probable that the same
teams, or most of them, which ran in
the state meet, will be entered in this
race, plus the Detroit Y. M. C. A.,
under whose auspices the run is held,
with possibly the Toledo Y and the
Detroit Athletic club sending a squad
over the route.
Today's meet winds up the 1916
cross country season. Out of three
meets in which the Wolverines have
competed this fall, they have been de-
feated in one dual clash with Tom
Keene's Orangemen from Syracuse;
they have won the state meet, and last
Saturday they placed ninth in the in-
tercollegiate race on the Yale course.
If first honors are brought back to
Ann Arbor today, that will make twe
victories, another creditable showing
against the fastest field the east can
put out, and only one defeat, out of
four possible chances. This is rather
a successful season on that record.
For individual honors, Eddie Car-
roll has taken the University cham-
pionship race, placed first in the Syra-
cuse meet, seized the state champion-
ship title, placed second in the inter-
collegiate- run under circumstances
which made that record almost equiv-
alent to a win, and now finally has
the chance to again break the tape
ahead of the field. In case he lives
up to expectations he will come as
near a perfect record as could rea-
sonably be expected of any one man.

Brown-Colgate, Nebraska-Notre Dame,
and Kansas-Missouri Matches
Decide Title
Three games that may contribute
something to untangling the cham-
pionship muddle in east and middle
west will be played this afternoon
when Brown meets Colgate at Provi-
dence, Nebraska tackles Notre Dame
at Lincoln, and Kansas and Missouri
hook up at Columbia.
The first of these games cannot es-
tablish either of the contestants as
champions of the east, but it may elim-
inate one of them. If Brown wins, no
change in the status of the east's lead-
ing teams will occur, as Colgate has
already been defeated by Yale. But
if the Brunonians lose, their claim to
the title will be swept away and Pitts-
burg and the Army will remain'alone
at the top of the heap.
In the west, where the title is even
more uncertain than in the east, the
defeat of Notre Dame by Nebraska
will eliminate the Catholics from fur-
ther consideration. Nebraska cannot
be counted in, as the Cornhuskers
have lost to Kansas. The battle at
Columbia between Kansas and Mis-
souri will mean the elimination of
one of these undefeated teams. This
will leave Ohio State, Michigan, and
either Kansas or Missouri to argue
about the title. If Notre Dame suc-
ceeds in downing Nebraska, the Cath-I
olics will, of course, also have to be

Coaches Say Yale
Course Hard Test
New Haven, Conn., Nov. 29.-Nearly
all of the college crosis country
coaches are loud in their condemna-
tion of the Yale course, over which
the interscbolastic (hampionship
event was held last Saturday. Such
a hazardous trail, they claim, was not
a true test of a runner's ability. They
contend that a path that carries run-
ners up a hill nearly 500 feet above
the level of the street and then forces
them to pick their way down is-.some-
thing which does not indicate speed
nor stamina. Such a tricky course as
that over which Cornell won the team
and Johnny Overton of Yale the in-
dividual honors was too great a handi-
cap for the majority of the athletes.
One of the most prominent coaches
said the event was poorly handled.-
Several of the colleges did not re-a
ceive a topographical map of the,
course, and others received it only a,
week before the event. The football
game, coaches claim, took all the in-
terest away, and they say probably in
the future the cross country event
will be held at some other place.
"1P" Men Await Return of Director

Michigan's choice of captain for the
coming season will be made later than
any election for the past several years.
No definite time for the election of
the man to the highest position that
the "M" men can give to any man on
the team has been made.
Last week a new leader was not
chosen because of the condition of
right end Peach. Now that this husky
is able to be around again, Mr. Bartel-

Philadelphia, Nov. 29.-The U.: of
P. students, incensed because the
ticket scalpers bought up tickets for
the annual Penn-Cornell Thanksgiv-
ing day football game, made prisoners
of a dozen of the speculators and took
the tickets away from them.
Many of the scalpers resisted, show-
ing fight. All of them were overcome
and marched into the athletic associa-
tion building, Thirty-third street,
above Spruce, where they were
stripped of their clothes and a thor-
ough search was made for the prec-
ious pasteboards. Cash value was
paid the scalpers in every instance.
The 200 students were those who
were frozen out when 2,000 tickets
were sold. When the stock was ex-
hausted the disgruntled students were
irritated at the sight of scalpers
brazenly offering to sell tickets in
front of the building and about thej
dormitories. For several hours they
endured it, but at last their patience
came to an end.
