TUFTS COLLEGE NOTES
From the enthusiastic manner in which the incoming class has taken hold of foot ball, the College expects it to furnish some good men for our College eleven, and it is hoped that we can put a stronger team into the field this fall than ever before.
According to a custom of the college the Sophomores challenge the Freshmen to some game soon after the beginning of the college year. The Sophomores have already challenged the Freshmen to a game of foot ball, to be played one week from this afternoon, by Tufts’ rules.
