A squad of 55 candidates reported yesterday to Coach Shrubb of the cross-country team, and were put through a light practice. The men ran a mile on the Stadium track, after which they made the round of Soldiers Field on the speedway, a total distance of three miles. There will be practice every afternoon consisting either of running or long walks, and the regular Chestnut Hill course will be used in order to familiarize the men with the course over which they will run in competition. Of the men who competed in the intercollegiate run last year the following are back again: C. W. Burrage '13, H. L. Groves '12, H. P. Lawless '13, S. Nichols '13, and P. R. Withington '12.
Coach Shrubb on Field Mornings.
Coach Shrubb, of the cross-country team, has volunteered to be on Soldiers Field at 11 o'clock each morning to coach men who on account of laboratory exercises and afternoon courses are absolutely unable to report for afternoon work. It is desired, however, to have all men who can do so report in the afternoon. If enough men report for the cross-country team who find 4 o'clock an inconvenient hour, two afternoon squads will be formed, hours for which will be announced later.
