New Haven, Conn., Oct. 15, 1907.--The Yale University football squad was given a light practice this afternoon. After a little preliminary work in kicking and catching for the backs, the squad was divided into three teams, each of which had a long signal drill. A fifteen-minute scrimmage between the first and second teams followed, in which the first team scored three touchdowns, gaining most ground by long end runs and skin tackle plays. Many forward passes and a few onside kicks were tried with poor success. Murphy played a fast game, making one long run and a clever forward pass.
Many of the old players were on hand to aid in coaching the squad.
