The I ' ale Blue runners opened the season with an 18-41 decision in a sleety rain, over New Hampshire. Ken and Ernie Black, Marsh, and Hunnewell raced home in a tie for Inst in 23 :2 U with the other Maine runners in eighth, ninth, and tenth positions. By finishing 14. 15.

Maine placed four men in the first ten and finished with a score of 23 to Bates ' 46 and Colby ' s A over a 4.46 mile course at ( Irono. Ken Black was first for Maine, on the heels of Veysey, in 24 :34. The meet marked the first time since 1927 that more than two teams had competed for the State Championship. Colby was the newcomer. In the following week Maine defeated the Mules in dual competition 22-,V > . Veysey again paced the pack but Maine hunched six men among the first ten to win handily.

Back row— Mgr, Verrill, Corbett, I larke, Beverage, Stagg, I Front row— Saunders, Wishart, l Black, E, Black, Marsh. Hunnewell, ch Jenkins a brilliant season as a Freshman, was " breaking in. " With a few weeks of intensive practice behind him, the coach was able to divide ile squad — four of the hest runners in New England, hut no one to make the fifth. At this time, Howard Stagg, a Sophomore, seemed to solve the problem. Stagg, who had taken up cross country only this fall, possessed ability, and this the coach meant to cultivate. In the first meet of the year, Stagg placed well among the regulars. But his triumph was short-lived. Running at Boston, he wandered from the course, in- jured an ankle, and was out for the remainder of the season. On Saunders now fell the task of being the fifth man on the squad. Lettermen were: Ernest Black, Kenneth Black. Robert Corbett, William Hun- newell. Joel Marsh. Harry Saunders, Howard Stagg, and Robert Wishart. Ken Black was elected honorary captain. PROSPECTS AHEAD Maine will lose the Blacks and Marsh in 1935, but with Hunnewell ami Stagg once more in uniform the nucleus for a powerful team will remain. From the Freshmen, nun with possible ability are Waddington, Cain, and Wishart. while the upperclasses will furnish Prince. Maine ' s title at the New Englands and second at the Nationals are probably lost but there is little reason why her individual stars cannot go on to establish marks for themselves and their University. Hunnewell, in particular, is expected to con- tinue his victories with increasing success in both funior and Senior years. 214
