Spring practice for the University football team will begin on Soldiers Field this afternoon at 4 o'clock. The work will continue for at least three weeks. The coaching for the first week will be on the elements of the game. The following two weeks will be devoted to signal practice and a few scrimmages. The kicking practice will continue throughout the three weeks. Men who have football clothes will be provided for these who have none. In order to facilitate the distribution of clothes, those who have none should report before 4 o'clock so that they will not delay the regular work of practice.
