Dr. J. S. Wilson represented Wil?
liam and Mary at the meeting of the
representatives of the Virginia In?
tercollegiate Association, Friday, in
Richmond. The following is a brief
account of the meeting published in
next day's Times-Dispatch:
"Representatives of the Vin
Intercollegiate Association met last
night at the Richmond Hotel. The
constitution of the league was modi?

"This meeting was of interest here

The article states that no definite

rpects to be placed in the rank of

is ot course a perfect right so far
I we know, to withdraw from the
ague, but we do not see where any
'finite reasons for doing so can be
ven. A backward look into its
story in athletics certainly does
>t seem to warrant any such a
lange. In fact during the past
w years, judging by the scores in
e games with the smaller colleges,
would seem that Richmond has
id all that it could do to maintain
position among these srnilier col- j
jes. We cannot see whv R?cn- j
