No attempt was made at oiganized

long whistling yell.

waved Hags In wild disorder.
When an Army back made a speptacular
dash of 40 yards on a fake kick In the
early part of tho game, some of the

tho Middles. The Cadets, on the other

splendidly and Army's attempt at a place
kick for a goal failed.
