The Athletic Committee and President Reed discuss the possibility of introducing soccer to the campus on an inter-class and inter-fraternity level. The resources for a varsity team are not yet available, but if enough interest is shown such a team could be formed. The Intercollegiate Football Rules Committee amends the game, disallowing athletes to deliberately strike their opponents with fists, elbows, knees or feet in order to provide a safer environment for players. New rules are outlined for freshmen girls, including the regulation of parasol and hairpin use. The Comus Club gives their mid-winter dance. Inspired by other universities, the senior class attempts to start a ritual of wearing caps and gowns to chapel. The Belles Lettres Literary Society prepares to celebrate its one-hundred-and-twentieth anniversary.
