LACROSSE PROSPECTS BRIGHT

Encouraging Outlook for Season.--Practice Progressing Well.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

University lacrosse candidates have now been working out for over a week in the Cage. The night practices, which are an innovation this season, have proved so far highly successful. As soon as the University squad has gained more proficiency in stick-work and become accustomed to the regular hours, the Freshman candidates will be called out and given one night a week for practice. Early games make it necessary for the University to use the Cage for the present to the exclusion of the Freshmen. As the Freshman games will not be played until later, the team will have ample time for outdoor work.

The veterans from last year's team who have returned this season are: Captain R. S. Simmons '13, of South Boston. N. B. Lincoln '13, J. F. Foristall '13, W. J. McKenzie '13, J. W. White '13, F. E. Abbe '14, R. Beatley '13. In addition, there are a number of promising new candidates, including the men on last year's Freshman team.

The officials of the lacrosse team are in communication with Coach Warwick, who has coached the University's championship twelves for two years. Though he has not yet signed a contract, he has signified his intention of returning, and it is hoped that he will be on hand for the early games, if not before.

The University has won the championship of the northern division of the Intercollegiate Lacrosse League for the past three years. Four years ago it tied for the title, and for the two preceding years won the championship. For the past ten years Harvard has hardly known defeat in lacrosse. Though this year's schedule is considered an unusually difficult one, there is no reason to believe that the team will fall to uphold its enviable past record.
