Any group in the college may enter teams in the informal league. Starting Monday, a notice will be posted in Leavitt and Peirce's window to inform those who are interested in the ice conditions on Soldier's Field rinks. On the days when it is possible to play, anyone desiring to do so may go out to the rinks where the coach in charge will see that he gets an opportunity to play. When good ice can be assured, regular scheduled games will be played off.
If the new hockey league proves popular and there is a great demand for skating space before the Christmas holidays, further arrangements for rinks will be made during the vacation. The tennis courts will be flooded, and, if it is necessary, more rinks will be constructed.
