The greater part of the Freshman football practice yesterday afternoon consisted in punting to the backfield, blocking by the ends and in forming interference against the substitutes. The practice began with a short session of tackling the dummy. This was followed by the backs catching punts under the direction of Coach Waterbury and the ends practicing blocking under Coach Moore.
The first team then lined up against the substitutes. The latter were given the ball and the plays were walked through, special attention being paid to interference. After a short, snappy signal practice, the first team was sent in to the Locker Building.
The second team lined up against the Juniors in a 15-minute scrimmage, in which the Juniors scored once on a fluke.
