While campus Mr .Hall showed on the considerable ability along the lines of organization and there is no doubt but that he will be able to get togcth-;- r a real club. In his letter written soon after the game with Georgia Tech, he said: certainly made a "The Wildcats creditable showing here in the Kentucky-Tech game.
