with the present system and its polit-
ical possibilities. If the new plan i
adopted by the student body it should
stay any repetition of clique control
which has characterized many elec-
tions in the past.
When appointments to committees
are restricted as they are at present,
when team captains who made the
nominations are beseiged by a dozen
clamoring candidates, most of them
supported by well organized rings,
when votes are openly traded, it is
time to institute a system which will
give capable individuals a fair oppor-
tunity to qualify for athletic offices.
The proposed arrangement has the
added advantage of affording prospect-
ive candidates a chance to become fa-
miliar with the duties of the office
which they will assume if elected. At
present the official duties of the base-
ball manager are limited to the chas-
ing of batted balls over the' grand-
stand and the safe guarding of the bat-
bag on tris. The office of football
manager is almost purely honorary
He goes with the team for games away
from home, but as a general rule souie
hired official attends to the tran-spor-
tation arrangements, checks the gate
receipts and performs most of those
duties which in other schools are del-
egated to the student manager.
Under the new system all sopho-
mores who apply to the athletic associ-
ation are placed on the football, base-
ball or track committees as they
choose. From these underclassmen,
two men are selected who have shown
the most ability during the year, and
one of them is elected by the members
of the association to the office of as-
sistant varsity manager. He then au-
tomatically becomes manager th fol-
lowing year, and has the advantage of
having had two years of actual expe-
rience, before assuming office. That
he will be better qualified to retrieve
lost balls seems reasonable. That he
will be considered competent to do
more than that, is quite possible. That
he will be a man who btter represents
the choice of the student body than
many of our managers in the past, is
a practical certainty.
