Chances of Victory at Ithaca Lessened by Accidents of Past Week.

The University track team will leave Trinity Place Station, Boston, at 7.39 this evening to take part in the annual meet with Cornell at Ithaca, N. Y., on Saturday afternoon. Prospects for a victory are by no means as bright as a week ago, due to the loss of four good men who for one reason or another will not be able to make the trip. B. Z. Nelson '15 and J. I. Abbott '14 will stay behind on account of pulled tendons, W. W. Kent '16 is out on account of a weak ankle, and E. W. Mahan '16 must remain in Cambridge to play in the Amherst baseball game on Saturday.

Thirty-three men will make the trip, accompanied by Manager C. G. Squibb '14, Assistant Manager J. Greenough '15, Coaches Donovan and Powers, and rubbers Fowler and Smith.
