Last Practice in Arena Yesterday.
The last practice for the hockey squad in the Arena was held yesterday afternoon. No scrimmage took place, but all the forwards and the first team defence were sent down on the second defence with Chadwick and Gardner alternating at goal. The men skated in pairs to develop more individual work in passing and shooting through the defence. The team showed much improvement over yesterday's work in faster skating and eluding opponents with greater ease.
F. H. Palmer '13, a forward of the 1913 Freshman team, who was relieved of probation yesterday, has joined the squad and will go to New York today with the team.
