One of the tirst things which the coach

Long is of the opinion that the
college will have a v.inninc: team this

time with the men has been limited,
he has had opportunity to size up Iii?
material and iready to make predic?
tions as to what will be done.
The schedule is not as bard as it has
been in previous years, but tho stand- ]
iny of the schools to be met compares
favorably with what has been done
heretofore. It is hoped that the colic- j
