The outlook at the beginning of the football sea-
son this vear was not very encouraging, many of the
old men having" graduated, and there being no coach
to drill the team. At first it was thought the best
plan would he to play independent ball, but later it
was decided to enter the Interscholastic League, and
work to keep up the reputation of the school-to win
the pennant for another year. A large bunch was out
for practice the hrst night, but they were so light it
was seen that the team would have to be swift to off-
set the lack of weight.
During the early part of the season the team
had had luck. The hrst two games were played on
our home grounds with Niles and Grand Haven.
loth were easily won, but the team showed a lack of
coaching, and as both games were played in the rain
the Orange Sox did not do as well as usual. The
old players, Moats. Mon-tford and Hill lived up to
their past records in carrying hack punts and making
long runs, and Simon. with Hubbard to make holes
for hint. went through many times for long gains.
In the Grand Haven game Easton played a very good
game. breaking up interference, making holes for
the hacks. and getting down after punts. Bishop
also played well. making long end runs.
Then came a game with the second team, com-
posed of the boys who will make the team next year.

The last game was with the Benton Harbor Col-
lege On Thanksgiving. Great interest was taken in
the game, as the college had the best team it had
had for several years, and the result was in doubt,
some thinking the high school would win and some
the college. The teams were about evenly matched,
and it was an exciting game throughout. Vielehr
played the star game, the best he ever played.
Every time he got through the line, and it was due
to him that not an inch was gained through the cen-
ter. The college played good ball, and although they
were beaten they have a good team, better than any

Sol ended the season of 1907. We did not win
the pennant, but we did show that Benton Harbor
still had a team of which any school might be proud,
and we hope that the team of 1908-, with Ron Mont-
fO'fCl as captain, will do their best to maintain the
standard which the teams of ,06 and l07 have set.

.In football the College may think they are good,
And before the game they were there,
But the only thing in which they are champions
Is in the line of hot air.
