sea.son of the fall of '98 gave great encourage those interested iu college athletics. A schedule of five games was played without a defeat. Our record was one which we are proud of and in after years we shall look back upon it with pleasure.

IHE

ment to

This year's team has au advantage which previous teams have always lacked good, continious coaching. Mr. Marshall Tyler, Amherst, '97, began his services as one of the college corps of instructors this year, and it was owing to his interest and efficient coaching that the success of our team was made po.ssible. At the beginning of the season only three of the '97 team were in college. Owing to this state of affairs it was necessary to develop players from new material. From what at the beginning seemed a hopeless task great success was attained, a team being developed which was worthy of the college. This making of a good team from a list of candidates consisting almost entirely of new men, was one of the most encouraging features of the season. Throughout the season the regular team practiced against a strong second one. This was the best possible training and also the means of bringing good substitutes to the front. The great interest of the student body and faculty was shown by a large attendance at the games and by good financial support.

good Emmet, '00, at right tackle was an old veteran. His weight and knowledge of the game made the team strong at this point. Cross, '00, at right end was a good ground gainer and sure tackier.

MacKnight, '03. for a new man was a sturdy centre, who Ihroughout played an honest, aggressive game. Grinnell, '01, left guard, was a strong player. Hoxie, '03, left tackle, was the strongest man in the line, and sure of good gains when given the ball. Brooks, '99, played a clean game at right end. Soule, '00, at quarterback was an acquisition. He combined good passing with clever headwork. Fr3', '00, right halfback, was a good runner, quick to notice an opening in the opponents' line.
