In looking over the programme of outdoor athletic meetings in the various colleges we notice that nearly every one has events in lacrosse and base-ball throwing or foot-ball kicking. Although our meetings are rather crowded with the large number of necessary events, still it seems possible that the time could be profitably spared to give opportunity for a contest in one if not all of these additional events. The trial at foot-ball kicking could take place at the fall meeting, and it seems as though base-ball throwing would make an interesting event in the coming spring meeting. We have athletes sufficiently proficient in each of these branches to ensure us a very creditable record in case a contest should take place, and taking into account the extra interest the Athletic Association would promote by encouraging special skill among the members of the teams, it seems that it would be well worth their trouble to inaugurate this new event.
