DAY OF REST FOR REGULARS

Substitutes Show Improved Form In Lively Tilt With Seconds, Scoring Three Touchdowns.

All of the football men who played in the Princeton game, with the exception of Mahan, were given a rest from practice yesterday. Mahan did not get into the scrimmage, but spent some time in trying out punts and drop-kicks.

The substitutes were lined up against the seconds for three-quarters of an hour, and showed more life than usual, scoring three touchdowns by generally out-playing their opponents. It took them some time to get really started, but after they did the fight went all one way. After 15 minutes of play, the substitutes received the ball on a punt in midfield. From there, a few plunges netted about 20 yards, and a neat forward pass from Freedley to Felton 25 more. With the ball on their own 5-yard line, the seconds held for three downs. Then Freedley scored by receiving a second pass around right end.

The second touchdown came after a 30-yard getaway by McKinlock, and a series of line plunges in which Bettle figured conspicuously. The final score was made by Rollins on a fake kick formation, similar to the ones effectively used by Mahan, and Brickley. Of the backfield, McKinlock and Willetts showed up particularly well; and of the line, Felton, Mills, and Morgan.

The Princeton game failed to produce any injuries of more than very minor significance among the regulars, and they will all be on hand for the hard work during the remainder of the week. The period preceding the Brown game is all that remains in which the coaches may hope to do any real developing of the eleven, and it is certain that the scrimmages will be gruelling, directed toward a general strengthening and speeding up. Today's practice, further more, should decide whether any changes will be made in the present line-up.

F. D. Huntington '12, a back and centre on the University team of two years ago, yesterday joined the coaching staff.
