ERRORS OF GAME POINTED OUT
PRACTICE OF LIGHT NATURE DUE TO SEVERITY OF TUFTS CONTEST.
After a prolonged blackboard talk in which the coaches emphasized the mistakes of last Saturday's game, the University football team went into the Stadium and ran through signals for over an hour. The work was light as is usual on Mondays for the regulars, but team C was scrimmaged against the second team. The ball was given to team C in the middle of the field but the seconds recovered a fumble and advanced to the University's 20-yard line where the ball was lost on downs. W. Willcox '17 was given the signal for a run around left end and carried the ball 30 yards before he was tackled, R. H. Hitchcock '19 immediately afterwards made 15 yards through tackle. The University's march was halted, however, on the second team's 15-yard line. After a couple of exchanges of punts, W. L. Wheeler '18 blocked Ellison's punt which G. B. Woods '19 recovered and carried to the second team's ten-yard line. Here the second team held and the darkness, which made it difficult to follow the ball, put an end to the practice.
G. C. Caner '17 was on the field dressed to play for the first time in a week, but R. H. Bond '19, who was injured in the Tufts game, was an onlooker from the sidelines, as was M. Taylor '18.
Except for these two men the entire University squad is in good condition and all except the regulars on team A who had only light work had a chance to get into the scrimmage. It is hoped that the injured men will soon be in condition to play again.
