It is well to spend Friday evening in singing and amusements and thus keep up the spirits of the men by varying the monotony of the regular weekly routine. The coach should aim to make the evening as pleasant as he can. It is the night before the game. The minds of the men should be taken off the contest that is due for the morrow. Young players are anxious enough without the continual reminders of which they have been the recipients all the week, and the "Night Before" should be devoted to a good rest.

The spirits of the men have probably been brought to a high and intense pitch by the work of the week and they should be allowed to enter the contest with fresh, rather than fatigued minds.
