This afternoon we have the only opportunity of meeting any Yale team upon the foot-ball field. Much as we regret the necessary abandonment of the 'Varsity game, there is little use in "crying over spilled milk," especially as the fault of the spilling is not ours; so that it only remains for us now to nerve ourselves more surely for the present contest and to win, if winning is possible. The freshmen must play this afternoon with this in view. The game will be a game only by courtesy, in reality it will prove work. The freshman teams of previous years have set '92 an example which it is their duty to follow. In doing this, confidence will be helpful but overconfidence disastrous. Careful, hard work will prove quite as necessary as pure brawn. In fact, the team must rely almost wholly upon the former because of their light weight. If our freshmen win, they will deserve the congratulations and thanks of the college; if they lose, we sincerely hope that there will be no occasion for our finding fault.
