MINT NEW' SONGS _J i_ Undergraduate Committee Pre- pares' Several j New College Songs—Long Felt Want at LUst Supplied—Students) Practice Chapel—Attitude oi Faculty in on by the Matter Appreciated Undergraduates! Wednesday morning, the chapel service was given over entirely Professor Ford to the practicing the new college i songs composed by of by the recently appointed Song Com- mittee. Three songs had been writ- ten, and copies of these were iis- tributed among the students and sung with much Enthusiasm. In devoting the chapel period to the practicing of the songs, Professor ' Ford spoke briefly of the importance of such songs as an influence in producing college spiritl ( , , The deplorable lack of a sufficient number of college songs has long been felt by the undergraduate body the was of the University, and even by alumni. Last year the matter' 5 ' brought to a headi by the appoint- ment of a song committee from the student body, to endeavor to satisfy the long-felt want. Several excellent songs were written Iby the committee and the work fairly started. This year„ a new committee has been ap- pointed, and in a remarkably saort time, three songs were, prepared and submitted to the student body. . , THE ST.

LAWRENCE Saturday, Before a e. In the game ,on Saturday the Var- sity simply swept the Middlebury team off its feet, and time and again the boys earned the ball i down the field-fdr a touchdown until final- ly the score stood at forty-six to nothing Every man on the team played a fast, hard game, and went into each play as though the result of the contest depended upon it Al- though most of the glory belongs to the backfield, the men on the line showed their temper whenever Midj dlebury had the ball, by either throwing the opposing backs for a loss or allowing them only a paltry two or three yards. In only one department of the game did Middle 1 - bury excel, and that was in the punting; for Leonard booted the ball between forty and fifty yards every time that he kicked. \ By a strange coincidence the score of Saturday was within one point of being the- same as the score of the preceedmg game, only reversed, and the men fought like tigers during the s last five minutes of play to bring the score up to this point. The students attended the game in a body, and the large, enthusiastic cheering section was a clear demon- stration of the wisdom of making the athletic tax larger and giving a season ticket to each student. The agitation for more songs and yells also bore fruit on Saturday m the varied singing and cheering that was kept up through the game. The new yell \Laurentia\ was especially effective, and it rang\ across the field as clearly and piercingly as a clarion call. I This yell was sug- gested by Professor Gaines, to whom the thanks of the students are due. Referee Stevens blew his whistle for the stai]t of the game promptly at three o'clock, arid Leonard kicked off to Logan, who was downed on the Varsity|s thirty-yard line. Tlie St. Lawrence backfield immediately began to rip through the Middlebury line, ~and before five minutes had passed Logan broke away the field and a£ter running forty yards crossed the line for ia,< touchdown. Welch kicked the goal, and the Iscore stood six to nothing. Kinney kicked off for St. Lawrenc|e,i * and -Chapman, who received the 'ball, was downed in his tracks^ Howard and. King 1 ,could not gain through the line, and Middle- bury lost the ball on downs to St. goal, and the score stood twelve to nothing. Leonard received tlie kick- off for 'Middlebury. The Middlebury hacks again tried to go througl: the St. Lawrence line, but Leonard was forced to punt and sent the ball soaring for a distance of forty yards. After being penalized for of:'-side play, St. L&wrence also punted. King made an end run of t\ reive yards, and Leanard and Howard by tackle plays secured first down again for Middlebury, but a fumble at ball, this point~gave St. Lawrence the ball Timmerman, who had recovered the on secured five yards run, and Williams fifteen, ter closed with the ball m the an end The' die of the field and the 1 score twelve quar- mid- to nothing.

On receiving the kick-off Leonard punted the ball for a distance of fifty yards. Again the Varsity made one of its trips down tthe field for a touchdown. Welch started things by going twen- ty yards around right end, Calder made the fjrst down; Olds covered eighteen yards on a trick play; and_ then, after a few more plays, Tim- merman was rammed ' over] for a touchdown? Welch for the first time, did not kick the 1 goal, and the? score was twenty-nine to nothing. I In the first play off the last quar- ter Hutchins got through the line and threw Smith for a loss.
