YALE FOOTBALL TEAM ASKS THAT PRACTICE START EARLY

Universal demand for retaining their present staff of coaches and a general desire for an earlier start of practice marked the Yale football team's eleventh annual barn party. Professor William Lyon Phelps was the first to voice the apparently widespread sentiment towards beginning practice about September 1, instead of two weeks later, as is usually done.

Rotan, big Eli guard, was acting captain in the absence of Booth and took the lead in demanding that the present coaching regime should be retained without any changes.
