In response to the notice which had been posted by the football management, a large number of men assembled on Jarvis field dressed for practice. The candidates for the freshman eleven began work a little after three o'clock. The number of freshmen trying for their class eleven is unusually large, and the material seems to be rather better than it has been in recent years. The men are heavier than usual, and display an energetic spirit and willingness to work which promises well. About three-quarters of an hour was spent in passing the ball, kicking, and drilling in rush line work. There are a few men among the candidates who are of unusual ability, but the greater part display about the knowledge that freshman candidates usually possess. Physically, the men are a very good lot, and with proper training and a great deal of hard work, ought to develope an eleven which will properly represent Ninety-three. The football management has reason to believe, however, that there are some promising men in the freshman class who have not yet come out as candidates. Every man in Ninety-three who has any knowledge of football, or a good physique without the knowledge of the game, ought to come out and do all in his power to support the honor of his class.

The candidates for the 'Varsity began work a little after four. There were very few old football players out. Among those who have previously played on the 'Varsity as regular members or substitutes were Captain Cumnock, J. P. Lee, '91, Carpenter, L. S., Morse, L. S., J. Crane, '90, and Dean, '91. Trafford, L. S., Crosby, '91, and Cranston, '92 will begin practice Monday. The work yesterday afternoon was rather discouraging, and the football men must display more interest if Harvard is to have a winning eleven this year. Captain Cumnock is hampered by a lack of material. Reports come to him of new and promising men in the university who play football but for various reasons have not come out. He is very anxious to meet every man in college who plays the game, and it is hoped that new men will not let anything keep them from becoming candidates for the eleven.
