Two hundred and fifty men have signed the blue books and agreed to pay three dollars each to have Holmes Field flooded and turned into a skating pond. This number should be sufficient to make the scheme a success. There is a serious obstacle at present since the consent of the Corporation to the scheme has not yet been obtained. A petition to flood the field which was handed in by an undergraduate two weeks ago was refused. The matter was then placed entirely in the hands of Mr. H. H. White, athletic manager, who has handed in a second petition. In case this is granted work will begin at once.
The undertaking will be managed by the athletic committee, precisely as the football and baseball games. Season tickets will be sold and all non-nolders will have to pay admission.
