The University football squad was given a long scrimmage in the Stadium yesterday afternoon. The work of the first squad was rather lifeless; the line was slow and the backs failed to pick their holes. Smith was not dressed and it has been decided that he cannot play in scrimmages until Monday. His injury is not serious, however. Corbott was on the field but took only a slight drill in kicking; Minot is fast rounding into shape and it is expected that he will be out soon.
The scrimmage between the first and second ended with the score 5 to 0 in favor of the first team. The second, however, held their opponents for downs twice, and made numerous gains. Galatti was tried at halfback, shifting from his regular position of quarter. Long and Rogers showed up strongly, the former making the touchdown.
The substitutes then lined up against the second substitutes for a 15-minute scrimmage. Wigglesworth at quarter did some very spectacular running, behind good interference. He caught a punt in mid-field and scored after a brilliant run; in addition he ran back two kick-offs to the middle of the field. His playing was by far the best of the afternoon. During the scrimmage the first team substitutes scored three touchdowns, Pierce making the other two. This scrimmage was carried through in good style, both teams showing more snap and speed than the others.
In the scrimmage between the first and second teams the line-up was as follows: FIRST TEAM. SECOND TEAM. L.D. Smith, F. de H. Houston, l.e. r.e., Linnehan, C.N.
