Playing the first and second fives against the third and fourth, Coach Wachter put his men through the first scrimmage of the season yesterday afternoon. The passing was rather inaccurate and fouls were frequent in both scrimmages but Coach Wachter expressed himself as well pleased with the showing made by all the teams. Last evening at the Freshman Gymnasium a blackboard talk was given to the entire squad. At this meeting formations and plays were explained in detail and the new rules carefully gone over. Coach Wachter is endeavoring to teach the men to avoid, as much as possible, fouling.
Team A lined up against Team C with H. B. Tyson '23 at centre, A. E. McLeish '23 and H. W. Holt '21 at left and right forward, and H. E. Feiring '23 and S. B. Chase '22 at left and right guard respectively. It is quite likely that R. W. Fitts '23' will replace Holt at right forward as soon as his injured leg is well. K. A. Buchanan '21 played centre for team B, G. T. Barker '23 and W. V. Miller '23 guards and T. C. McConnell '21 and J. M. A. Blair '23, forwards. These teams are merely tentative and there have been no real first or second teams picked as yet.
