DEAF MUTES FOOTBALL PLAYERS
Tho nation's capital claims probably
the most remarkable football team In
the country. Tho team's signals aro
given without tho uttoranco of a word
or sound, although they aro of the
most approved and complex kind. All
signalling Is done by motions of the
hands, arms and head. The team is
composed entirely of deaf and dumb
mutes, organized at tho Government
Institute for tho Deaf and Dumb,
known as Gallaudet College.
Tho students are especially fond of
athletics, and always turn out strong
teams in all branches of sports under
taken. The football team Is an ex
ceptionally strong eleven this year and
would prove very formidable against
any college team it might meet outside
of the "big four."
