LACROSSE.

Lacrosse, practice for which will begin today, deserves well of the undergraduate body. As a game it possesses practically all of the advantages that were so strongly urged for soccer in two recent communications. It requires no particular bodily endowments, agility and quickness being the prime requisites. It offers a large number of men, even without previous experience, an excellent opportunity for exercise.

On the strength of its past record at Harvard, also, lacrosse should receive adequate support. For in the last three years the University team has twice won the intercollegiate championship and tied for it in the intervening year. As less than half of last year's team are now available, new men must be developed to fill their places. Only by a large number of candidates may the team hope to maintain the standard of the last three years.
