W. H. TRUMBULL CHIEF SPEAKER AT UNION RALLY

LIVING ROOM AND HALLS JAMMED

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A wildly enthusiastic mob of undergraduates jammed into the Union last evening and gave the University eleven one of the greatest ovations that a Crimson team has ever received. Time after time the men who packed the Living Room to its utmost capacity and overflowed into the hallways rose en masse and cheered steadily for several minutes. When the eleven walked up onto the platform, R. W. Emmons ocC. led cheers for each member of the team and then W. H. Trumbull '15 spoke.

"I would like to find the men who can't help getting a thrill out of that," he commenced, "that's the way Harvard men should always welcome their team. But because you are enthusiastic, don't be over-confident. Last year when you faced Princeton you were."

"Don't be over-confident," he reiterated time and again. "Saturday at the end of the first half we may find ourselves face to face with another disheartening uphill fight as we did last year. This is the time to yell your throats out for your team You must, too. Don't be deceived. We're in for a struggle, not for an easy victory."
