The amount of work which is being done at the Soldiers' Field, for which we are so greatly indebted to Major Higginson, makes it evident that by another autumn our football teams may practice across the river. The extent of the piece of land is a surprise. There is plenty of room for all the baseball fields or football fields we could possibly use, even if twice as many students attended the university. The embankments along the river keep out the water so that the land that was once marshy is now dry. It has all been laid out nearly level, sloping towards the river just enough to allow the water to run off. Everyone interested in athletics cannot help but renew his thanks to the donor of this ground when, now that it is nearly leveled off, he sees how admirably it will be suited to its purpose.
