to positively fix dates with the
Eastern colleges, a thing which
neither our present manager nor
our present secretary can do.
Unless lie can make his dates with
authority and be held responsible
if lie fails to show up, the Eastern
colleges will fill their dates with
other teams that can be depended
I understand that the Secretary
of the Association for last year,
Mr. Wade, has dates for June 1,
2 and 3, with Yale, Harvard and
Columbia, but those dates cannot
be fixed upon any other than the
personal responsibility of Mr.
Wade, until a new board of di-
rectors is elected and a new man-
ager given authority to arrange
games. If we wait until next
spring to elect officers, these col-

then elect directors for the coin-
ing season, who can immediately
select a manager with power to
act in the matter of an Eastern
trip. I think the present direc-
tors would favor this, as they have
little or nothing to do, even if we
wait until spring.
If the constitution provides for
holding the election in the Spring,
it could and, I think, should be
be changed so as always to have
the directors and manager elected
before Christmas. I should like
to see the experiment tried this
year, at any rate; and if found
unfeasible, the plan can be dis-
carded. It appears to me abso-
lutely necessary to insure the
eastern trip next spring, when we
shall probably have a stronger
team than that of last year, and
one which ought to make a record
creditable to the University.

thinking that the practice to be
obtained by playing a somewhat
weak team would not compensate
for the expense of bringing De

possible exception the foot-ball'
