I can do no more. .What is the use trying ? None." ot short passes and one must be quick of eye to follow tbe ring and.quick and' accurate of motion to place the CHd of the stick in the opening of the ring as it is speeding across t\\o floor. The possibility for the exer- ' cise of judgment and the chance tor team play are unlimited. During the winter term great inter-�3t has been shown in the senior class, and much benefit derived from I the exercises.

ART ROSS SIGNS � WITH SENATORS Moutreali Que., Jan. 9.--Art Ross, the well-known hockey player, whose two weeks' suspension by the N.H.A; magnates was up yesterday, last night signed la; contradt with' the Ottawa olub, and .Vvlll report in Ottawa immediately.

T)ie .subject does not appeal to Ty. who, I however, was anything but �.loath to be interviewed. ' � AD. WOLGAST FEARS .
