But one man has shown up for the
shot put. This man is Baker of last
year's All-fresh, and while he has
R shown fair form, he will not be able
to fill the hole left by "Cee" Cross and
"Pat" Smith. Simpson, who graduat-
ed last year, hardly has an equal in
this year's crew of high-jumpers, al-
st though Haigh, Johnson, and Later are-
e rounding into form. While pole-vault-
'e ers Cross and Robertson have improv-
at ed in the past few weeks, they are
o not of the calibre needed for winners.

mile event in good fashion and should

e of strength and ability.
Il The broad-jump will be well taken
re care of by Johnson and Page. This
it event will be greatly strengthened by
a the return of R. H. Leslie, '19L, who
will probably report for practice after

With more than 75 men reporting
for the first several nights of fresh-
basketball practice, and between 30
and 40 every night since, Coach Ad-
rian has had an abundance of material
from which to pick an All-fresh quin-
tet.
Many old high school stars have put,
in an appearance at Waterman gym-
nasium and it has been with difficulty
that the freshman mentor has been:
able to pick the best five to represent
the yearlings against the Varsity.
Mitchell Thinks Well of Men
Coach Mitchell says that the fresh-
men are good basketball players and
should make good Varsity material,
and their record so far this season
has upheld him in this statement.
Many times the Varsity has gone down
to defeat at the hands of the yearl-
ings, and in every game played be-
tween these two teams, the first year
men have pushed the regulars hard
and made them play their best game.
It has sometimes been the policy of,
the Varsity coach to send in first one
bunch of regulars against the fresh-
men and then after giving them a
short rest start another bunch of un-
