Worcester Polytechnic Substituted for New Hampshire--Springfield College on Schedule

Several changes in the 1928 Soccer schedule have-been effected, and now with the program definitely settled the team faces its hardest year to date.

A game with Worcester Polytechnic Institute has been substituted for the game with New Hampshire University next-Saturday. Springfield College will be played on the date Worcester was to have been met.

All games this year are to be played on Soldiers Field, Saturday morning before the football games, with the exception of the Yale game which is to take place in New Haven before the Yale-Harvard football game.

The team is faced with the difficult task of winning nine of its 12 games including the Yale game to quality for minor sport H's.

At present Captain A. M. Stollmeyer '30 and E. J. Des Roches '31 are having a stiff competition for the fullback berth. J. de Wolfe Hubbard '29 is also showing up well. The halfback positions are in a way to be well filled with Louis Kerness '29, a two year veteran, A. R. Rudd '39 of last year's team, and A. G. Booth '80, of last year's team competing for them.

The chief weakness of the team appears to be in the forward line. W. D. Vogel '30 being the only veteran, but Coach Kershaw hopes to develop men out of several prominent candidates.

Last year the team lost to Yale 2-0, but with much good veteran material the team is expected to perform more creditably this year.
