To Vet Runners
The fledgeling cross countrj
team, led by freshman Mike Ridge,
gave St. Andrews’ seasoned crew
a run for their money in Laurin
burg last Friday afternoon. St.
Andrews came out on top 21 to 34
Low score wins in cross country.
Jim Smith of St. Andrews was

trotting home in 22 minutes and 48
seconds. The second and third
place finishers were also from
Charlotte’s Mike Ridge scam

of 26 minutes and 4 seconds. Ht

ferty, whose time was 26
minutes and 43 seconds, good en

Other Charlotte men to place

During tlic summer months,
members of tlie library staff eff
ected several changes and made
considerable progress on projects
already underway. The most ob
vious alteration is tlie furnishing
of the space formerly used as an
auditorium. All books classified
“PZ” through “Z” are now shel
ved in tills area.
In addition, study carrels are
provided for tlie individual student.
This room is reserved for tlie per
son who needs a quiet retreat for
The reclassification of tlie books
from Dewey to die Library of
Congress system progressed rap
idly. At tlie end of tlie summer
only books in die 800’s (Liter
ature) remained to be reclassi
fied. The library staff hopes to
have tliese completed by Christ

Mike Ridge said he felt “Pretty
good’’ about the team’s showing.
“We bunched three guys in the top
six and kept St. Andrews from
running away from us. They were
supposed to beat us pretty bad,
“We have a lot of potential. Our
oldest man is only a junior. 1
think we’ll improve a lot as we
run more and more.”
Ridge also said the team is
looking forward to another match
at St. Andrews the second week in
October. This will be a three-
way match between Lynchburg Col
lege, St. Andrews, and Charlotte.
Last Friday’s overland duel was
to have been a three-way affair
but College of Charleston’s team
did not show up.
Robbie Snipes has been forced
to curtail his cross-coimtry par
ticipation due to poor circulation
in his legs.
“My legs are alrightfor tlie first
couple of miles,” said Snipes,
“But tlien tlie circulation gets
pretty bad and Uiey start to ache.
I’ve had tliis trouble for a long
time,” he added.
Coach Murpliy has advised Rob
bie to continue working on his
running, but at his own speed. It
is doubtful tliat he will be able to
rejoin tlie team.
Robbie has been replaced on tlie
cross-country team by Bill Red
man, who made tlie trip to Lau
rinburg in his place.

charge of 35(! per game which will
include the rental of shoes and ball.
