On the whole there is good

of hard practice will correct many
of these weak points.
Class Foot-Ball.
'12 Law met the strong '94 Lit
team yesterday afternoon and ac-
quitted themselves very credita-
bly. They showed a vast improve-
ment over their first game. The
score was 12 to 0 for the Lits.
For some unaccountable reason
the 'Varsity team wished to prac-
tice on the marked-out field, and
the class teams were compelled to
play on the lower campus, where
the indefiniteness of the lines
made disputes frequent. This is
not calculated to advance the
cause of foot-ball here, for it is
discouraging to new players and
causes an ill feeling that is not
desirable. The Rugby Associa-
tion has offered a handsome ban-
ner for the champion team, and
the classes should be allowed to
play their matches without inter-
ference. The way the crowd of
onlookers encroach upon the field,
as it did yesterday, makes a touch-
down, under the circumstances,
anything but creditable to the
winning team.
