Ever since the crushing defeat at Philadelphia on Saturday the first team has been utterly dispirited, the student body disheartened and other supporters well nigh disgusted. This condition was not made any better by the news of Franklin and Marshall's fine showing on "Wednesday when they held Penn to a score of 13 to 6. Since Saturday's game only one scrimmage has been possible, the scrubs refusing to turn out in "sufficient numbers to allow the first team an opposing eleven. On Wedpesday evening the practice was of the most ragged sort and coaches and spectators found little encouragement in the form displayed. Lack of head work seems to be one of the most glaring defects and Coach Mauthe, after each play, is forced to give a demonstration to show the "bone-head"' work of some member of the squaa. Hoar sustained an injury to his arm in the Penn game which is likely to keep him out of play for several weeks and Buehler is out on account of parental objection. Several other players are laid up with minor injuries and the whole outfit is nearly demoralized. At the assembly exercise this morning an appeal ~was made to get more men out for practice "but the student body seems convinced that the material is not here to be developed and the most optimistic fail to see any hope of defeating the usual rivals lat- of Interesting Mews from their Respective Towns.

He died several hours later. Several months ago the home of Mr. Michael was burned, and it is thought the strain of rebuilding contributed to his death.
