General Slr John French. insprvtor gen?

been elected to th* board of governors of

otTVlal report to the Domlnion government:
"It is well known that conditions in the

'Nearly all mounted regiments whlch T

Columbla's winter pports teams will get

of the games that are held before the term
flxamtoatlffna begin in th* Law School.
With tbesfl two playera back, Flflber
counts on a tram that will dupllcate the
work of the flve lust season. when fourteen
of the Bfteen gaincs played were won, the
only contest lost being that with the
nlumnl flve. Jarmes, a sophomore, was at
centre ln the games preceding the Chliflt*
BOBfl rcst, but his work was not up to the
fltandard, Wlth tba veteran cantra back to
the game. however, that position ls well
taken care of, while Mahon will probably
fit In wlth Kiendi ln the forward line.
Beginnlng next Saturday the team will
play a aerlea of llve games wlthln two
araeba, four of them heinif ln the lntercol
lcgiate championshlp scrhs. The first Is
wilh Cornell, at Ithaca, and on the follow

to the Columhia gymnasli.m on January 14.
and on Tueaday, January 17, there ls an?

The hoekey teari, which hegan its season
by winning Bucceealve gramtfl in Cleveland
from the Case BcbOOl Of Applied Bobmce
and YVestern Rfseive, will have Its flrfll

giate championshlp. For the flrst time ln
its historv the Blue and "W'hlte flexea has
had B professlonal coach, and ulthough the
squad was flflrlOUBly weakened by the loss
of four of Its lv ?t playera through lnellgi
bllity, Petcy Le Seucr, the coach. has bullt
up a strong defensive combination. Al
though Le Seuer does BOt hold out any
prospeet of annexlng the Intercolleglate
championshlp, he ls not backward in say
lng that the team will beat the records of
any of the teams that Columbla has turned
out thus far. No games outsid*. of thoaa
in the intercolleglate serles have been
scheduled, but lt ls expected that a Bhert
triy will be arranged for ln February, When
the team will go to Albany and meet W'lll
lama, Kensselatr Poyteehnie and the I^>u
don Fleld Club. This trip has usually been
Include.d ln the Columbla schedule.
It ls not belleved at Culumbia that the
opposition to freshman swimmers on teams
eeanpettog in maata for the ehamplonabip
of the Intercolleglate Swimmlng Associa
tion will have any effeet on the Columhia
team during the present year. It has been
suggested. since the laoant Oornell-Colum
bla dual contest, ln which Cornell waa very
badly beaten, that tha rules of the associa
tlon should be chang*d i?o that flrst year
men would be lnrliglble to rfpresent their
collegea in the water on 'varsity teams.
Even lf the opposition should cryttalilze
and become strong enough to have the mat
ter brought to the attention of the league
offlcials, lt ls not llkely that unything would
be done ln the matter, for, ae Is the case
wlth other ndnor Intercolleglate asso'ia
tiona, the swlmming aaaoetatfton follows th*
rules of the I. C A. A. A. A. ln regard to
ellgibllity. By these regulatlons the ellg1
billty rules of tbe respectlve colleges deter
mlne tiie ellgibllity of tbe membera of
teams. At least this Is tho way one Colum?
bla man prominent in swimming clrclen ex
plalns the aftalr. "And lf the league should
go contrary to the practlce of the I. C A.
A. A. A.," he said yesterday, "Jt would be
manifestly Impcsslble for the rule to be
put Into effeet this year, for that ls con?
trary U all prUiclples of law."
The Columbla swimmers are not worry
Ing very much over the matte.r, however.
and both tbe awlmmlng and water polo
teams are practlslng hard. The swimming
team ls weakest ln tbfl mlddle dlstance
ewlrns and ls etrong ln tbe plunga and
dlvlng eventa. Several club swimmers havo
taken the lndlvldual men ln hand and ara
coachlng them. C. D. Trubenbach has

The opening of the Carnegie natatorlum
at Yale was one of the features of tho

New Haven followed arjuattcs in 1310 as all
the rest of the sports put topether.
A marked increase ln tho number of men
who went out for the swimming and water

of contcstanls improved. both individually
and as a class, ln every branch of the
