At the preliminary meeting of candidates for spring football practice last night, more than ever before reported. This is of special significance, because it clearly shows that the University is in earnest in upholding her football traditions. In spite of the loss of Percy D. Haughton, Yale and Princeton may in no way anticipate capturing the laurels from Harvard next fall.

It is interesting to note that the student body demonstrates by its response to football its belief in the return to the former basis of athletics, as was anticipated in the recent resolution passed by the Student Council.

The enthusiasm shown at the first meeting of the candidates last night must be maintained and every effort should be made to fulfill Percy Haughton's famous belief in "starting right."
