P. Newton '11 Won Consolation Run

The consolation cross-country run yesterday, over two laps of the two-mile course around Soldiers Field, was won by P. Newton '11, W. F. Ryan '11 was second, and S. Nichols '13 was third. At the start, C. W. Putnam '12 took the lead, but was passed, at the end of the first lap, by Nichols, Newton, Burrage, and Ryan, who led in that order. On the second lap, Ryan sprinted and led from the Newell gate to a point a mile from the finish. Here, Newton, who had been following closely, passed him and, during the rest of the run, increased his lead. The first three men finished about 100 yards apart, far ahead of the others. No time was taken.
