"I hear from Mr. Murchie that the cups authorized by the Athletic Committee for the members of the Freshman football team are ready for delivery and I take this occasion to say that I am glad to see this recognition of the fine spirit of the team and of the good exhibition of amateur sport last fall. It is always a pleasure to have a team go through the season with a clean record on the field and in the college work. Your men have shown us what can be done under good leadership and first rate discipline.

"Hoping that you may all find pleasant memories associated with these modest trophies, I am,

"Yours very truly,
