Wlth but a single excoption every
big Eastern unlvorslty. as well a3 sev?
eral Westorn Institutions, has started
preliminary football practice for the
season of HI07. Although baseball ls
just making lts debut, the teams that
will flourish on the grldlron next fall
have already had a week or two of
practice. Harvard ls tho only ono of
tho Eastern group that has not put
lhe randldates through a preliminary
workout this spring. Captain Parker.
ot the Harvard eleven. hns announced
that the Crimson team has abandoned
spring practice for good. Further
more, Harvard has planned to Becura
the co-oporntlon of other Eastern uni?
versities to etop the practlco alto
Their scheme ls doomed to be a fail?
ure, however, for all the other uni?
versities have already completed their
plnns, and. ln fact. started training
for tho season whlch does not open
untll next Soptember. nearly flvo
months away. Tho Harvard captaln,
In nnnouncing that Harvard would do
away with spring practlco, Intlmated
that spring practice was contrary to
true amateurlsm. There can be no
grounds for such bellef, for spring
practice is mado necessary by the new
Last Year Experimental.
The season of 1906, tho first under
the new code. was slmply an experi?
mental season nnd coaches and cap?
tains had no opportunity to put theso
new plnys tlnto practice. that tl\eirj
havo had slnce the rules wore adopted.
It Is -becauso of thls fact that tho
large Eastern and Western universi?
ties of the country will lndulge ln it.
Yalo, Prlnceton, Cornell. Pennsylva?
nla. and Mlchlgan have already start?
ed work, and thls work will. without
doubt. aid materlally in llghtenlng
the labors of tho coaches thls fall.
Plans for tho 1907 coachlng havlng
been made by every member of tho
F.astern "Big Five." Willlam Knox. of
Pittsburg. the famous half back of last
fall, will coach tho Yalo team; Hallt
day and Schoelkopf will lnltlate tho
graduato systom at Cornell; Joshua
Crano will run .things at Harvard, ai
though it is predlcted every where
that ho will have a hardor time of lt
than hls contemporarlcs, because of
tho fact that Harvard will lndu.lgo In
no spring practice. Roper will prob?
ably havo charge of tho Prlncetoa
Tigers, whllo Pennsylvanla's squad
