General Improvement Shown by
the Players.- Donnelly and
Malley Expected Soon.
While it was said at the beginning
of the season that prospects for suc-
cess on the football field were very
bright here, the present develop-
ment of good material has been un-
expected. Manager Baird has good
reason to be more than proud of the
good showing now being made on
the practice field. Every day sees
the playing improved in steadiness
and strength.
Yesterday's practice was especi-
ally notable for the fine team work
displayed. Villa distinguished him-
self more than once by his hard,
quick work when be got the ball.
1he new center, Smith, is at a dis-
advantage from having had no train-
Ing until within the past few days,
but he is steadily bringing his en-'
durance up and should be a match
for the best of them when the sea-
son fairly begins. His weight alone,
23o pounds, will prove quite a
stumbling block to opponents, and
be has strength to back it up. Hen-
ninger and both Griffins are playing
strong and steady, tackling and
bucking the line in fine form. In
fact, all the men are getting down
to real work, and good results will
certainly follow. Hayes is handi-
capped somewhat, by having reci-
tations at practice hours, but can
always be relied upon to play a good
hard game.
The good results of Barbour's
vigorous coaching are beginning to
appear, and the wisdom of work
under a physical trainer like Moul-
ton will be more evident later on.
Donnelly and Malley are expected
in a day or two, and great improve-
ment should begin.
inlander Prizes.
The efforts of the editors of the
Inlander to make the magazine of a
popular character acceptable to all
its readers is meeting this year with
wider appreciation than ever before
among undergraduates and alumni.
Especially among the latter is there
an increased recognition of the
value of the magazine. To still
further increase the interest among
undergraduate students, the board
solicits contributions from students
of all departments, and offers to

give one year's subscription to the WE'LL MEET 'EM SATURDAY.
