Saturday night the university bas
ket ball team will lino up against
tho Bwlft Haskell men and tho hard
est game of the season "will be played.
Under Dr. Clapp's efficient coaching
tho team has been getting In good
trim for the coming contest. A few
words concerning the men who are
to battle for the Bcarlet and cream
will probably bo of Interest to follow
ers of the game.
Hewitt, oaptaln and center, played
with the team last year, and his height
makes him a valuable man In his posi
Elliott, forward, Is playing his first
year on the Varsity, but he has had
considerable experience on minor
teams. He Is playing a good game and
quite creditably fills the vacancy
caused by the loss of Cortelyou.
Ferguson, forward, Is doing good
work, and with a little more exper
ience will make a strong man.
Hlltner, guard and manager of the
team, another first year man, has
played basket ball for some time, be
ing captain of the scrubs during the
lasj two season. He plays a strong,
Hoar, guard, is showing up well In

a splendid game on tho L. H. S., and
although this Is his first year on tho

will prove to be a valuable addition

the entire student body Saturday night

Y. M. C. A. at Yale
Tho Yalo Y. M. C. A. Is tho only
similar organization In the country or
ganized on a university basis. Tho
extent of tho work several year ago
demanded that some such division bo
made and now each dopartmont has
Its own association, although all Is
under the direction of tho university
council, composed of tho university
general secretary, tho secretaries and
presidents of tho different departments,
tho university treasurer and the de
partment committeemen. Under this
organization there are tho following
departments: Academic department,
Sheffield scientific dopartmont, divinity
school department, law schol and
medical school departments. Tho aca
demic department and tho Sheffield de
partments each has its own general
secretary. The graduate schools to
gether have a general secretary and
the university general secretary sus
tains advisory relations to all, while
also having charge of whatever work
concerns the university as a whole.
All the work except the scientific
department has its home in Dwlght
hall, which Is a large building erected
on the campus for a 'center of tho re
llgloua life of the university. Tho
scleniitic school has similar quarters
on Its campus. These buildings are
both gifts of friends of tho universi
ty. Tho work cajrled on by the associa
tion Is In general similar to that dono
by atudont associations In all Ameri
can colleges, of which the work by the
Nebraska association Is a good exam
ple. Tho traditions of Yalo. however,
have molded somewhat the character
of ho work so It bears the peculiar
mark of Yalo customs and Yale spirit.
On account of tho dormitory life, which
provides for the social necessities of
the students, little social work Is car
ried on by tho association. Outside
of the regular features of Sunday
evening addresses, Bible study and mis
sionary work, the principal effort Is
directed to philanthropic work In the
city. This consists of city mission
work of the nature of social settlement
activities, boys' clubs, and various oth
er kinds of religious work among the
lower classes of the city. Consider
able effort and money Is expended In
this direction and the results obtained
aro correspondingly large. Yale hnil
Is a large building erected in the down
town district to serve as a center for
the social settlement work.
On the whole the association is
closely Identified with the genoral life
of the university and Is the largest
and most influential organization
among the student body.
