New Rule About Fair Catch Tried.- Game with Exeter Today.

The practice of the 'varsity squad yesterday afternoon was worse than it has been for some time. Captain Brewer found it necessary to talk very earnestly to the men and his words did some little good. The only good plays were two runs by Gonterman and C. Brewer behind splendid interference. They showed what is possible under the new style of interference which has been introduced this year on account of the change in the rules.

Waters and Lewis were kept very busy coaching the centre men while Wrenn gave his attention to the quarterbacks on the first eleven, Beale and Hamlen.

The only new feature was the introduction of the new rule under which Harvard and Pennsylvania are to play-the rule which does not allow the man who catches a punted ball to run, or anybody to tackle him. The rule allows the catcher to pass the ball to another. This was not tried at all in yesterday's practice. One of the two elevens lined up where the ball was returned as under the old rule on a fair catch. In one or two cases the catcher Immediately returned the punt.

The line up yesterday was:



Cabot, l. e r. e., Townsend.

Haughton, l. t. r. t., Eddy.

Holt, l. g. r. g., Hennen.

Shaw, c. c., Hoague.
