At the end of each season the football enthusiasts, both professors and students, can be found huddled in small groups about the halls of the University, loudly asserting that the team of that particular year was the strongest ever produced. When the season of ' 97 closed and we re- alized that many of the veterans of that successful team would not return, we thought it impossible to have a good team in ' 1)8. But when the stu- dents began to gather in the autumn, and Captain Mosse made a call for candidates for the team, the campus seemed alive with the best material. Most of it, however, was green, but by hard work an eleven was developed which proved one of the strongest in the history of University athletics. This team, however, did not start out brilliantly in the game with the Uni- versity Medical College on October 5th; but nevertheless that game re- sulted in a score of 6 to in our favor. On the following Saturday, October 8th, the ' Varsity lined up against the Haskell Indians for a practice game, and scored thirty points to Haskell ' s nothing. On October 15th took place the most interesting game of the sea- son, that with the Iowa Agricultural College. The Iowa team having been EDWARD J. LELAND, Manager. . . . Law ' 99. m training for two months prior to the game, was in perfect condition; and our entire team showed marked improvement. The game resulted in a score of 11 to in favor of the Jayhawkers. -92-

The Athletic Association. During the present year the Athletic Association, finding its old con- stitution inadequate, adopted a new one, which seems to be more nearly adequate for all branches of athletics. The principal features of the new arrangement may be seen in the following articles taken from the con- st it ution as adopted: ARTICLE IX. BOARD OF DIRECTORS. Section 1. The Board of Directors shall consist of eleven members, and shall be constituted as follows viz., the Chancellor of the Univer- sity, who shall be chairman of the board, without vote except in case of ti- : rhe Professor of Physical Traning. and the President of the Associa- tion, who shall be cx-officio members of said board; four members of the Faculty, who shall be chosen and elected by the University Council; and four members of the Association, who shall be elected by the members of the Association at its annual meeting. " Sec. 2. The Board of Directors shall have general charge of the affairs, funds, and property of the Association. They shall have full power, and it shall be their duty, to carry out the purposes of the Asso- ciation in accordance with any rules adopted by the University Council. " ARTICLE X. GENERAL MANAGER. Section ' 2. He shall have general supervision of all business trans- actions involving the receipt or expenditure of moneys on behalf of tiie Association. He shall receive all revenue from the team managers, or from other sources, and promptly turn over the same to the Treasurer. taking his receipt therefor. He shall have general supervision of thf managers of the various teams and all business transactions entered. into by said managers. "

Our trip to Warrensburg, on October 22d, was undoubtedly the most pleasant trip made by the team during the year. The Jayhawkers showed splendid form in tin game, scoring 33 to on the Normalites. On Octo- ber 29th, the game with the Ensworth Medical team at St. Joe resulted in a score of 41 to in favor of Kansas. Then we met Nebraska an November 5th; they proved to be the stronger team, in probably the hardest cotnest ever seen on McCook Field. The game was much closer than the score, 18 to 6, indicates. The game with St. Mary ' s College, at St. .Marys. Kansas, ended in a quarrel. The Kansas University men left the field on account of a decision that seemed to them very unjust. On November 12th the University Medical College team came to Law- rence to play off the return game. They were full of life, having defeated the Nebraskans a few day previous, but they found the Jayhawkers also in ex- WYLIE G. WOODRUFF, Coach. cellent spirit. The game, unfortun- ately, ended in a quarrel; the University Medical College team forfeiting it by a score of 6 to 0. The Thanksgiving game at Kansas City is always the event of the season. Missouri put up a fine game, but was unable to score against the Jayhawkers. As usual, this game was characterized by clean, gentle- manly playing on both sides. The final score was 12 to in favor of Kansas. J. Lcland. -93-
