HOW ABOUT THOSE SEATS?
It seems pertinent at this time to
inquire what arrangements are to be
made for reserving tickets for the S.
L. A. course. Almost any system
would be preferable to the old method
of lining up half of the night in
order to secure a desirable seat. We
are well aware that the problem is
not easy to solve, but at the same
time we do not hesitate in saying
that the go-as-you-please system of
the Choral Union would be vastly
more desirable to the students than
the old S. L. A. method. The
Choral Union has followed this plan
for years with eminent satisfaction
to all concerned. Itis raised as an
objection by many that this necessi-
tates going to an entertainment an
hour or more before time in order
to get seats. All very true, but
there is certainly less inconvenience
in occupying a moderately comfort-
able seat in University Hall for an
hour, than in keeping in line for
several hours during some of the
most frigid winter mornings in order
to accomplish the same end in no
more satisfactory manner. While
we are aware that our proposition is
open to objection from more than
one side, still we champion it as the
best method feasible.
A DEPLORABLE FACT.
It is indeed a sad commentary on
our athletic enthusiasm that class
teams are unable to organize for the
only reason that a second eleven
must be provided for the 'Varsity
team to work against. Surely there
ought to be enough men in every
class, desirous of positions on their
class teams, to make at least two
elevens, while the 'Varsities are giv-
ing employment to two or three
second teams. Our athletic supre-
macy seems a long way in the dis-
tance when we read of other institu-
tions with half our attendance whose
classes have from twenty to thirty
men trying for positions, while we
can scarcely keep a second eleven in
the field. Our criticism is hard but
just. Our athletic spirit, as regards
football, at least, is sadly at low

To the Managing Editor of the U. of .DAILY:
"Student" miht have carried his criticism
of the attitude of our students towards ath.
letics a step farther, and contrasted their
actions after the team has sustained dfeat,
with thse of the students in eastern coleges.
Here in Michigan we expect the nine or
eleven to win aways, and underaall cream-
stanees, it often takes bt one defeat to
change cheering enthusiasts to the most carp-
ingeritics, while all good plays and faithful
work on the part of players or managementt
are lost sight of and forgotten. After the
faithful work that has been done by the eleven
thus far, it deserves the cordial support of the
entire student body in victory or defeat. We
ought to feel that, defeated or victorious, the
team is doing its best, and playing better foot-
bal than Michigan hashad for years.
It would be of interestito learn whether easte
erncollege faculties deal more liberally with
the members of athletic teams than does our
own. within the past two years two of the
best players on the Cornell nine were kept
from an eastern trip because of the same re-
strictions as prevail here. W.
