Here is what entered into con

connotes the fact that some fifty ot
those ovoids, costing about $3 each,
are distributed to candidates during
the spring and summer, partly for
home practice. It appears that after
a day or two of use the ball has ,
tendency to grow "round".and lose
its orthodox shape. In catching punts
the player can practice on the round-!
ed ball only at some risk of the dead
ly fumble of the new ball used in
the match game. and thus a fresh ball
must be substituted in practice as
