With a possible chance of winning the three-fourths of the scheduled games required for its members to receive the minor sports "H", the University soccer team will line up against the Williams eleven at 1.30 o'clock this afternoon on Soldiers Field.
Showing steady improvement and flashes of real power, the University booters have defeated Wesleyan, tied Springfield and Dartmouth, and lost to a very strong Amherst outfit. The Purple squad is an unknown quantity, but Coach White of the University team expects a victory, despite the loss of Parrott, regular right halfback, who is laid low with an attack of tonsilitis.
A feature of the University season to date has been the sensational play of Smith, at outside left. Although he has only been out for the team for a period of two weeks, he has shown consistently well, and much is expected from him in this afternoon's tilt.
At 2.30 o'clock, the Freshman team will play the Worcester Academy booters in their fourth game of the season. The 1930 has to its credit wins over Dean Academy, and Tabor Academy, and have lost to Andover. The Worcester team has a reputation for strength, and a hard fight is expected. Last year the Freshmen fell before the Worcester school boys, who played a rough rushing game from whistle to whistle.
The University Seconds will face the Four Rivers Juniors. The Seconds are slow in rounding into form; their sole victory to date is a 2 to 1 win over Bridgewater Normal School, while Northeastern and Clan Lindsay have taken their measure.
