The prize kicking contest which was postponed from last spring will take place this afternoon at 3 o'clock on Soldiers Field. Three silver cups will be offered for punting, drop kicking and place kicking. The contest will be conducted by the coaches, and accuracy quickness, height, placing and distance will all be considered. The cups will be the property of the winners, and similar cups will be offered again in 1901 and 1902.
As these cups are offered to develop kickers, no one will be allowed to win more than one cup in the same event, or more than one cup in one year, although he may enter for all three events. For instance, if a man should win in punting this year, next year he could compete for place and drop kicking only.
These cups were given by I. Tucker Burr, Jr., '79 Winthrop Burr '84 and Allston Burr '89.
