The playing of the candidates for the freshman nine this spring shows that they have a vast amount of work to do if they hope to make a respectable record. Their work in so unimportant a game as that of yesterday can hardly be taken as a fair estimate of what they can do; but it at least indicates that to succeed they must put far more zeal into their work. The listless way in which they played out the game was anything but encouraging.
