We are sorry to hear that the game between the Harvard and Yale freshmen will probably have to be finally given up. The prospects for the success of our freshman team were very bright, and since they have been playing against the 'Varsity improvement has been very rapid. Although some of the best players have been so injured as to be unable to play, their positions have been very acceptably filled by new but ambitious men who play surprisingly well.
Some of the freshmen deserve special notice. Among the rushers Adams and Phillips play the best game, while Austin and Kimball, the latter of whom has, however, been unable to play lately, are excellent half-backs. The playing of the full-back is rather weak, but during the last few days that position has been well filled by Gardner, who will develop into a good player with practice. It seems particularly unfortunate that a game with Yale could not have been arranged this year, as the Harvard freshmen for the past five years have been unable to beat the Yales, and now for the first time the team seems able to cope with them with favorable results.
