Hockyln High School Not content to let the winter, pass without some form of athletics, the New Ulm High School boys are nowBank agitating a series of inter-claea hockey games to take the place of the defunct basketball team. The movement crys zed in amass meeting on the 7th of January which was attended by a large number of High School boys who enthusiastically approved of theThe plan. It was decided to hold a series class meetings during the next week and attempt to organize a team from each ciass. This would permit a lively series of interclat»s games which ought to stimulate a wholesome class rivalry. The game of hockey is played on the ice and thus has the advantage of being an open air game. It requires only a small area of ice and could be played either on the rink or upon the river. Only seven men are required for a team so it will be possible for each class the be represented in thefrom tournament. Hockey is a game that calls for speed, nerve and endurance and, while it is not considered as dangerous as football, there is enough chance for bumps and sore shins to add zest and make it apeal to the wide-awake boy. The Freobmen are the most aggres sive in this attempt to start something and have' already organized and commenced practice. The schedule of games will be arranged as soon as all teams are organized and the stand ing of the team will be computed on a per centaye basis of games won and lust as in a base-ball league. 4 t&^& tfrsaqfr^ (Continued from first page.)
