College Athletics

Excerpt from College Athletics College athletics are now recognized as a very important part of the life of the college man. Around the sport of the university cluster many of its most cherished traditions, and it is in some ways the very life and soul of the esprit de corps or college spirit so much talked about. In fact, the sport of a college re ceives more than its share of attention. And the general public is apt to forget that behind all this strenuousness and this en thusiasm, there is a background of hard study and earnest en deavor that but rarely comes to the surface and which passes unnoticed. The very great attention given to college sport has not been wholly salutary, but, in general, it has resulted in great good by drawing attention to the various sports and by retaining the interest of the students in athletics. The life of the college student is sedentary in character, and on that very account the heads of our universities are right in encouraging college sport along all lines. Some evils have crept in, but the great good and the many benefits to the student body much more than over balance these. The modern college student needs the exercise, and those who do not come out for the teams use the energy and time encouraging their representatives, which formerly they spent in drinking and other forms of dissipation. No matter how we feel toward sport, it is a fact that college athletics play a great role in undergraduate life and must be taken into account.
