Senior Laws Fail to Show Up at
Deciding Game in the AWarding
of Numeralh
Upon the failure of the laws to ap-
pear on Ferry Field yesterday morn-
ing, the senior lits were awarded a
forfeit by the Intramural athoritiea.
The game was to have been played
between the senior lits and the senior
laws for the second set of numerals
whh is given out by the Intramural
By previous agreement of the re-*
spective managers of the two teams
the amne was to have been played on
south Ferry Field at 9:15 o'clock ye-
terday. The lits had 13 men out on
the field but their prospective oppo-
nents did not show up, and the game
was forfeited.
In order of standing by sets of nu-
merals, the four high teams of the in-
terclass league rank as follows: All-
campus champions, which position na-
turally carries with it the first set of
numerals, are the dents; second set,l
senior lits; third set, senior laws;1
fourth set, soph lits. The first two
sets are awarded by the Intramural
office aud the last two are given by
the classes with a majority vote on
the recommendation of the class foot-
ball manager.
There can be no dispute as to the
legitimacy of the title of campus
championship this year. The -dents
won this distinction by hard playing
and by their defeat of some of the]
strongest teams in the league. In the
championship game they walloped the1
senior laws by a decisive score, al-
though up to that time the laws were
conceded to be the strongest team on
south Ferry Field, by virtue of their1
defeat of the senior lits earlier in the
season. The dents had a well bal-
anced team and had the fight to make
their aggregation first on the campus.
In speaking of the senior lts, strong
terms are necessary. They posse:.

In spite of the fact that the senior
laws receive the third set of numerals
it in no wise detracts from their pres-
t ige as a strong aggregation. They
one defeated the team which finished
above them in the race and played in
the championship game, which is in
itself a sufficient indication of their
worth. They played a consistent game
all season with the possible exception
