The Freshman football squad was given its first hard practice yesterday afternoon. After the usual preliminaries of falling on the ball, tackling the dummy and signal practice, teams A and C played one period of fifteen minutes, in which neither team scored. Teams B and D did not line up but several of the men took part in the serimmage on either team A or C. As might be expected so early in the season the offense was very ragged, the interference formed slowly forcing the backs to depend on their own efforts to gain ground. The defense, on the other hand, was excellent, the men tackling low and hard. On the first play after the kick-of, R. Bradley received a bad cut in the head.
The team will play its first game tomorrow with Groton School at Groton.
