Released from the Infirmary where he has been confined for several days with an infected foot. Mahan will today return to his place in the backfield of the University eleven, and will probably participate in at least a portion of the Princeton contest. Yesterday he was not in football clothes, but followed the work of the squad from the side-lines. His return to the line-up means that fast plays will become far more successful, for Mahan is the key to almost every formation that depends on speed. During his absence, his place has been filled by Bradlee, who has proven himself of much value on the secondary defense. The men are now all physically sound save Trumbull, and even he may yet be able to play Saturday.
Yesterday's practice consisted almost entirely of dummy scrimmage and signal drill. Under the driving of the coaches, the squad worked continuously at a high tension. Hardwick's punting showed great improvement, while Brickley drop-kicked goals with his usual accuracy. Although the plays were run with dash and precision when the regulars were working, the drill became slower and less smooth when the first string men were replaced by the substitutes. The coaches are now endeavoring to prepare the substitutes to fill all gaps, and to overcome the serious defect so manifest in Saturday's game, the vulnerability of the team after a few changes have been made from the regular line-up.
