About fifty men responded to Captain Cumnock's call, and met in the trophy room of the gymnasium yesterday afternoon. Captain Cumnock stated briefly the plan which would be followed out this spring and told what would be expected of the men. In the coming week all the candidates will be formed into one large squad which will take light exercise in the gymnasium every day, and a short run. At the end of the week a second squad will be picked from the first, and will include those men who seem to take the greatest interest and do the hardest work. This last squad will be taught the principles of the game and every effort will be made to show the men how to play real football. Still a third squad will be formed of last fall's 'varsity players and of the men on the second working squad who are deemed the most promising. This third squad will meet once a week and will talk over different plays and features of the game. The whole system will be a graduated one. The men will be watched carefully and the most zealous and promising ones will be promoted the fastest. Captain Cumnock is very desirous that new candidates-in addition to the ones below-present themselves this afternoon. The work for the first week will be light, just so that the men may get in good physical trim, and more men are very strongly urged to come out.
