ATHLETICS. In spite of the wa r footba ll pro1n­ ises to be as popular this yea r as ever and O tterbein w ill g ive an account of herself at the end of th e season that wi ll be wholly a cceptab le. Every­ where we hear the lam ent th at ·' m en arc sca rce." l f t his be tru e, and it cer ta inly is, there is all th e mor e need for the men that are here to get out and sh ow w llc:.t.t Ll1ey C~il d . ~~ot within r ecen t years h as th ere been such a n opport unity for a man to do something for his coll ege in athletics and at the same tim e make a name for himse lf. We need not think that because we are cripp le d by th e lack of men that we s hall be an "easy mark" for our oppo nents this year. Other col leges hav e bee n hit as hard as w e and will have just as ma ny new un­ seasoned men on their teams as we sha ll have. Now let us see every ab le­ bod ied man, w ithout a r easo nab le ex­ cuse, out for footba ll. You may not amount to much indi viduall y but it is th e te a m a s a who le that cou n ts.

·( ' - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ' Some one has truthfully said, "Yo u get out of an organizati o n just what yo u put into it. The Y . M. C. A. started t he new yea r wit h two live meetings. What are we go ing to get out of it? Mr. A. will go to a ll th e m eetings, tak e an active part in all th e asw­ cia ti o n work and will r eceive a great amount of good from it. Mr. B. will not go to very many, if any, of the meetings. H e will plead too bus y wh e n call ed upon to do so me active work for the a sso­ ciation. To him th e Y. L C. A. wi ll mean nothing but a us e less organiza­ tio n. He wi ll won d er w hy it exists and why it doesn't do som et hing fo1· t he student body. In r eality, h e is to blame, but it would tak e t en thous­ and years to convince him that it was thus and not th e fault o f th e men in th e organization. Old Men: You know what th e Ot­ terbein Y. M . C. A. ha s stood for in past yea rs . Yon know t hat all the sc hoo l lead ers wer e big factor s in Y. M. work. You know that when you d eclin e to take an active part in this work you a re only cutting off your own nos e. The enro ll ment w ill be sma ll this year any-way, so w hy not get into line and enjoy the b enefits which a1·e ce rtain to co m e to th e in­ dividua l on account of th e diminis h­ ed enrollm e nt? New Men: Yo u are acquainted with yo ur association at home. O ur s is a sim il ar o rga n izat ion . You hav e seen two of our regul ar Thursday evenin g meetings. With in a sho rt tim e some one wil l wait upon you and ask yo u to join. Forget about thi s question, "Ca n I afford to join the Y ?" and ask yo ur self "Can I afford to miss it?" -A Cabi net Member.
