While we should like well enough to
see our team make a reputaltion out on
the Coast and while the players would
very glndly make such an enjoyable
trip, all realize that the chances would
be too great. The team could only
hope to wi on its repuatiol, as itI
could not expect to show anything like
good form at this time anyway and
furthermore there would be the long
trip and change of clima e to take into
account. Added to this are the ob-
jections that would be raised from
many sides to having a team take so
long a jaunt anyway.
University of Moscow,
The following article, whieh ap-
pered in the Cornell Daily Sun, is
especially interesting: The Univerisity
of Moscow, in ltussia, has over 4400
students in attendance. Unlike the
students of American universities, the
Russians do not engage in a~thletics or
gymnastics; nor do they halve clubs of
any sort. The students as well as the
professors are required to wear uni-
forms while in attendance at recita-
tions. Each course requires four years
of study, except tbmtt of medicine,
which requires five. Te first semes-
ter extends from the 20th of August to
Christmas; the second commences one
month later and ends in the latter partt
of May. The fee for each semester is
fifty rubles ($25). Oral examinations
are held at the end of each year. The
salary of a professor is about S1801.
and after twenty-ive Sears of service
he is pensioned.
All those competing for the 1 Oprize
oifted by the '96 Castliad for the
bet design are requested to sendin
their work by the 15th of January.

The London Field, recurring to the
methods followed in regard to amateur
athletics in America, holds that the
wide difference between the asmaiteur
sysems of the two countries renders
an equal maitch impossible. It says
that to successfully contest with Amer-
icans, which can only be done on their
own lines and no other, implies that
men shall be taken away from their
business for months togeither and
trained at public and private expense.
English amateurism will never toler-
ate men being made mere running,
jumping and weight hurling machines.
There is a strong feeling in university
athletics circles against renewing in-
ternational consts until the Ameri-
can system shall be reformed.
