About this time for several years past it has been customary to form a foot ball squad for the purpose of interesting men in the game and of developing material for the 'varsity eleven in the fall. Generally this squad has been requited from the class elevens or from men who have never played before. The 'varsity men have not considered it worth their while to join in. This year things will be essentially changed. Just as soon as the snow is off the ground, a call will be made for candidates. Capt. Trafford, Mackie, Gage, and Emmons of the first eleven and Robb, Hughes, Garrison and Borden of the second will be the most prominent of these. The other men who played on the two 'varsity elevens are, for the most part in training for some other branch of athletics. The most promising men will be chosen and on them the efforts of the captain and coaches will be directed. The work will last for about five weeks and during that time no pains will be spared to teaching the men the finer points of the game. It will be hard work throughout but an exceptionably good chance for anyone to learn to play the game as it should be played and the experience he will gain, if he shows enough promise and energy to keep up with the work, will be of great value to him next fall, either as a candidate for the 'varsity or class elevens.
