Those "stag" socials havo always
drawn largo crowds. They give new

portunity to meet their fellow class
mates and also to como in touch with
tho upper classmen. Moreover, tho
committee has arranged for a large
number of the faculty to be present
and to come in touch with tho new stu
dents. Freshmen, particularly, are
asked to make it a point to be at the
armory at eight o'clock for there are
very few occasions whore freshmen
and seniors, sophomores and juniors
gather for the express purpose of hav
ing a good time. The "stunts" are all
good. Tho speeches will, It is said, all
be worth; the time and the opportunity
to get acquainted will not como again
All men who are hero for the first
year want to meet the older men and
learn' tho ways of the university.
"King" Cole will be there and four or

NEW FOOTBALL PLAY8.
(Continued from Pago 3)
cral yearB later was to Invent a new
way of performing the play, and my
way Is probably tho father of the
many new and complex wayB In which
tho play Is performed today.
My method consisted of tho quarter
passing" the ball to a half-back as
usual, who with tho full ran across
to tho opposite sldo and transferred
tho ball to tho other half-back aa he
passed him; then kept- on going.
This latter half-back, standing still In
his tmcks, kicked the ball in the op
j'OBite dlroctlon from the way the full
nnd ilrst half were going, and the end
and quarter recovered It they having
run back of tho kicker, then out to
the sldo while the pass was being
made. This was in effect a 'delayed
kick," and was a vast improvement
over tho old quarter-back kick In that
It pulled opponents after the frfke In
terference and away from tho spot
where the ball was eventually to land.
Opened Wider Vista.
The piny opened up a much wider
vista as to the strategic possibilities
of the on-side kick, which have since
been developed to tho full.
It wns in 1901, 1902 and 1903 that
the cry for n more open style of play
began to become prolonged and In
sistent. All sorts of suggestions to
open up the game appeared In print,
some good, some bad. In 1903, after
the season, I wrote Mr. Walter Camp
of the rules committee and suggested
that if the committee really wished
to open up the game no easier or more
cortaln way of doing it could be de
vised than by allowing forward pass
ing. This opinion I also confided at
the time to sevoral of my friends and
other football exports.
Nothing came of It that year and
the "howl" grew louder. In Decem
ber, 1904, I wrote Mr. Camp again
and to the Bame effect. In Decem
ber, 1905, I wrote him again and to
the same effect and then como the
forward pass. It came with limita
tions and governing conditions, of
course, whereas my suggestion waB
general only. I meant it merely as a
hint, and the hint Mr. Camp was
broad enough to grasp, and when he
brought forth the "proposition" It was
evident to mo he had been giving my
general suggestion much careful de
tailed consideration. J. W. Helsman,

In the form of small panels, each of
