GAME OF THE SEASON.
The Game Between Sophomores and
Juniors Now Remains to Settle
the Interclass Championship.
In thirty-five- minutes of play yester-'
day afternoon tho Sophomores defeat
ed the Freshmen by a score of flvo to
nothing. Tho first half was a stand
off, neither side scoring. A very en
thusiastic crowd saw the contest, and
during the last fow minutes of play
became quite demonstrativo. The
Sophomores had an organized rooting
squad with a leader, and did some very
effective rooting. The field was a little
too soft and slippery for fast playing,
but other than that the conditions
The Freshmen kicked off at 2 o'clock
and the Sophomores, by a series of
tackle- bucks and mass on center plays,
took tho ball down to tho thirty yard
line whore they fumbled, tho Fresh
men securing tho ball. After making
two fair gains, tho Freshmen were
forced to punt, but Porrln, the SophB'
center, broke through and blocked
Benedict's punt. Benodict fell on the
ball, and the Freshmen failing to gain
again, he punted to tho Sophomores
lp tho middle of the field. After two
good, gains -by tho Sophs they were
forced to punt. Howard punted und
tho ball went over tho Freshmen's
goal line, where Rjjll downed it, mnk
ing a touchback. The Freshmen then
kicked out Trom tho twenty-five yard
line, tho. ball being downed lxuUie cen

by the Sophomores, time was cafted.

of the very best, and these men were

" Reform at West Point.
The reform movement still con
tinues. Although tho sensational ac
tion of Colurnblahas been repeated at
no other institution, tho feeling that
tho game must bo played under re
vised rules or abandoned, entirely
seems to prevail almost universally
among Eastern universities, and tp
some extent among those of tho West.
The latest developments In tho situ
ation are at West Point and Washing
ton. In his letter to tho University of
Now York accepting tho invltutlon Is
sued by that school to a Joint confer
ence -on football reform to bo 'hold In
New York next week, Brigadier Gen
eral Mills, commandant of West Point,
says that while tho faculty of tho mili
tary academy Is In favor of reform, It
Is strongly oppbsed to nny attempt at
abandoning -the game, At a mooting
of the Athletic Association, when dole
gates to tho conforenco wore appoint
odjv the following resolutions woro
drown up and adopted:
"First That tho present game of
football should not bo abollshdd, but
should be reformed.
"Second That, we bellovo that the
game can be reformed "only by repre
sentatives of colleges prominent In
foqtball, annually electing, a responsi
ble rules committee of nlno members,
who shall formulate tho rules undor
which tho game shall bo ployed.
"Third Thnt tho HneB of reform
should bo ns follows:
"To malce tfio gamo less dangerous
to the player and more Interesting to
tho spectator, to" make changes whlclf
will result In tho cortaln "detection of
foul or brntaj playjj.vlth tho end that
mass nlays.bo eliminated." (

tho gamo. Whllo nothing was dis
closed regarding tho details of tho con
ference, it is stated that tho president
is anxious that tho game of football
should not ho abandoned, but that he
strongly favors a modification of tho
rules. Unless tho brutality and dan
ger to tho lives of tho playors Is re
duced materially ho realizes that tho
gamo Is doomed.- It Is said that the
president Is conferring personally and
by letter with football authorities rola
tlvo to tho actual facts of tho game
and what, in their opinion, will bo the
best reformative methods.
The Three-Year Course.
President Clark qf Clark University,
In a rccont discussion on tho throo
year collego course, now being dobated
by Eastern educators, says:
"J have" no patlcnco for any effort
to oxcuso the fourth year at collego,
which is dofended by collogo authori
ties TTfT'tho best yeaY.of a student's
collego life' a year whlch-Js known
among students as tho ioallngyoar.'
"Tho most, vital question Involved
In a policy of tlmo shortening is not
a quostion of materially reducing tho
standard, but of producing an environ
ment In 'which collego life shall bo
shorn of tho hindrances that nillitnto
now so offeciually. agalns't lutoflectual
attainment. Such Internal conditions
In cpllogo life have produced not mere
ly U raco of students whose general
quality of studentship has been di
luted by an Infusion of Irrelevant In
terests, but havo brod n race 'of peda
gogical sophists, ready to defond a
life of luxurating colloge influences,
which has, of course, to bo mudo long
to provldo against Its thinness.'1
Among tho "hindrances that militato
now so effectually against Intellectual,
attainment," By. Clark emphasizes Jn
particular university athletics.
Every member of tho Students' De
bating Club Is requested' to bo present
at ,tho regular meeting this evening,
as there Is Important business to come
before the club. Tho question for dis
cussion is the municipal ownership of.
