The cross country team will leave for New York this afternoon at 1.03 o'clock to compete in the intercollegiate cross country run on Travers Island at four o'clock tomorrow. Besides Harvard, teams have been entered by Yale, Pennsylvania, Cornell, Columbia, Princeton, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cornell, which has won the championship for the last three years is expected to win again tomorrow. Unless the strength of the other teams has been much underestimated the University team should take second place.
The team will spend tonight at the Murray Hill Hotel, and tomorrow morning will walk over the course, which is six miles long. Coach Lathrop and Manager W. G. Graves '06 will accompany the team, which is composed of: A. King 3L, (captain), H. M. Turner '06, C. J. Jackman sL., H. Miller sS., S. T. Hubbard '07, M. S. Crosby '08 and M. H. Stone '07. Crosby and Jackman were on the team last year.
Since the run with Technology on November 11 the work of the team has been light. The squad ran seven miles last Friday, and three miles on Monday and Tuesday. No run was taken yesterday. Among the officials of the meet are J. Byrne '77, who has been appointed a scorer, and E. J. Wendell '82, who is a timer.
