SPRING FOOTBALL PRACTICE.
In returning to the custom of holding spring football practice, Captain Burr and Coach Haughton are giving the first possible instance of the initiative needed for the coming season. They have secured the services of several efficient graduate coaches, and intend to accomplish something more than mere drilling in fundamentals. We cannot help but admire the business-like way in which the season has been inaugurated, and we feel that this preliminary industry augurs well for the success of the team next fall.
But the efforts of the captain and coach will be fruitless of the candidates for the team do not respond by regular attendance at the practice. The coming three weeks will enable the coach to become acquainted with the members of the squad--an absolute essential to success,--and will give the new men an excellent opportunity for becoming prominent earlier next fall.
