THE FRESHMAN GAME.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Harvard freshmen have definitely declined the challenge of the Yale freshmen to play off the tie in foot-ball. The team has now been out of training for a week and it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to get into playing trim again in so short a time as is now left. Mr. Walter Oakes, the manager of the Harvard eleven, says in his letter declining the challenge, that "it is impossible to play another game, although we would like very much to play off the tie. Our semi-annuals are at hand and the men think that they cannot spare the time but must now make up for that lost during the foot-ball season. Besides, even if they should begin to practice and train so late in the season, a cold snap would come, and there would be so much snow that it would be impossible to play; and all the trouble would be for nothing."
