Yesterday wastupiiet day for tin- I'enn
svlvania football team at the Delaware
Water (lai>. Coach Woodruff had tiis
men up early, and after a hearty break-1
fast they were taken for a long walk up
hill and donu dale, t'he air was frosty
and clear and the team was greatly invig
rated. Short signal practice of an hour was
then held. In the afternoon another spell
of light work was done. Outside of this

When the idea of playing the big foot
ball games on college grounds was first
talked of it was thought that the stu
dents would prove incapable of manag
ing such important affairs, where ho
much work was necessary to accommo
date crowds of 20,(XX) persons without
accidents. But the way in which tlie
recent Harvard-Yale game was handled
proved conclusively that a college man,
j though not a professional manager, is
i capable of bringing about the moat sutis
I factory managerial results. Norman \V.
j liingham, Jr., Harvard's graduate man
I ager of athletics, was solely responsible
I for the unequalled management of that
| great event.
| He superintended the building of the im
mense stands, the laying out of the field,
the distribution of 24,0tlt) tickets, the
handling of the gross receipts and ex
! lenses, the arrangements with the street
ratlrrjiul people and the police, resides a
