We noted some time since that Hare and Hound runs have taken place here in the past and that the custom would be continued this fall. Hitherto, the scratch races have been one of the features of the fall term. Two years ago they occurred on the seventeenth of October. Last year they were delayed on account of the anniversary celebration. Such things as baseball games have been known to be during October, but never until this year of grace has such absolute stagnation been seen in athletic matters. Besides the eleven, which we believe is working hard, although no one seems to care whether it does or not, and the freshmen baseball nine, there is nothing moving. "Nothing succeeds like success," it is said. We had better take for our motto, "Nothdefeats like defeat."
