the other colleges of the day, Har-
vard, Rutgers, Princeton, Columbia
and others took up the game in a
more serious attitude. Naturally the
competition was between halls or
classes for many years and inter-col-
lege competition was practically un-
thought of. As the style of play devel-
oped, howpver, the desire for games
between colleges grew and "in 1872"
representatives of Yale, Rutgers,
Princeton, and Columbia met in New
York and adopted a set of rules which
formed the first intercollegiate foot-
ball association in America..
Quoting Mr. Yost again, "The as-
similation of theRugby game and its
evolution into the form in which it is
now played in the United States were
matters of considerable time and no
small amount of deliberation. The I
lEnglish rules were found to be am-
biguous in some cases, and difficult
of comprehension in others. The
novelty of the game was also product-
ive of many suggested alterations and
it was one of these that is responsi-
ble for the wide difference now -be-
tween Rugby and American football.
This was the adoption, of a clause
which permitted the forwards to heel
or pass the ball out fron the scrim-
mage where it could be grasped by the
backs who could then advance It."

sized that the Maize and Blue eleven
of 1921, the team which lost to the1
Wilcemen 14 to 0 on Ferry Field, did
not quit that day, contrary to public
opinion during the following weeks.
In support of his claim, the Coach
