PRINCETON LETTER.

The Team Preparing for the Yale Game. Interest in Golf.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

PRINCETON, N. J., Nov, 14, 1895.

The comment aroused by the Harvard and Cornell games has now about died out and the attention of the student body has been turned to the coming game with Yale. While much encouragement was received from the rather unexpected victory over Harvard, still there is not by any means a spirit of confidence that Yale will be defeated on Nov. 23. The small score made against Cornell was to a certain extent a surprise. But on account of the poor condition of the team as a result of the hard fought game with Harvard a week before, a very large score was not expected. Yet taking into account this fact, it seems as if a larger score might have been made. One of the chief things to be criticised in the play of the team was the poor spirit shown in the first half and most of the second. They seemed to be falling back upon the excuse for a poor showing. For the past few days the team, at the advice of Dr. Bovaird, has spent the time at the Delaware Water Gap recuperating. They returned on Wednesday and lined up for the first regular practice since Saturday.

The first half of the practice was open this week. At the beginning, the play was strong and snappy, the 'varsity going through scrubs line for repeated long gains, but after a few minutes the men lapsed into a slow, loose kind of play. They may not have been in the best of condition and possibly they will get back into form in a few days.

Golf at present is arousing considerable interest at Princeton. A club consisting of one hundred members has been organized and excellent links have been laid out. They consist of a nine hole course, having a fine turf and abounding in natural hazards. Work on the Brokaw Memorial is progressing rapidly. This building contains a spacious swimming tank and an ample number of lockers. It will fill a long felt need at Princeton, and its completion is looked forward to with great pleasure by the students of the college.

The preliminary contests to select representatives from the two Halls to enter the final contest for positions on the Yale debate have been held. The final contest will take place soon. Much interest is shown in these debates, and it is hoped that they will continue to be numbered among the intercollegiate contests.
