Cabot Lauds Fellowship of Athletes
Cites Examples of Later
Two faculty members, Dean Hug
Cabot of the medical school an
Prof. Thomas H. Reed of the politica
science department, supported b
two students, Ray L. Alexander, '27I
and K. F. Clardy, '25L, debated th
question: "Resoved that inter-col
legiate athletics, in their presen
form, are objectionable and shoul
be materially modified," in a Faculty
Student debate held last night in
Hill auditorium. Dean Edmund E
Day of the School of Business Admin-
istration acted as chairman.
Opening the discussion for the af-
firmative, Professor Reed criticized
the present system of intercollegiate
athletics because of their inadequacy
as a means of providing athletics for
the entire student body. "The base
is not broad, enough to include the
average student."
As a remedy to the present situa-
tion Professor Reed suggested a re-
duction or entire abolishment of paid
coaches, a limiting of hours to be de-
voted to specialized athletics and
that competition in stadium building
be brought to a halt whereby the pro-
ceeds of intercollegiate athletics
might be utilized toward providnig
competitiveathletics for all.
"We need men who are trained,
capable of suffering," declared Dean
Cabot in countering the arguments
that the present status of inter-col-
legiate athletics should be material-
ly modified, "and I know of nothing
in the University which accomplishes
this other than competitive athletics,
especially intercollegiate athletics."
In answer to the argument that
athletics reach only a limitel group,
Dean Cabot'inmaintained that "Inter-I
collegiate athletes have more to show
for it than appears on the field."
They do not live in water-tight com-
partments but circulate among their
fellows. Records of a period of 25
years show former athletes to be
among the substantial burgesses in
their community in positions of im-
Clardy, Professor Reed's teammate
in presenting the affirmative, retier-
ated the question as to the purpose
of athletics. "The only justification
for athletics in college is to train the
whole group," he said.
In upholding the negative, Alex-
ander attempted to justify athletics
as a distraction compared to other
"pleasant distractions" such as "Dat-
ing." With reference to the hours
spent in practicing football and- the
time wasted' in other miscellaneous
fields, Alexander pointed to the com-
parison as "painfully apparent."
In the ,rebuttal speeches both
teams took liberty to direct humor-
pus personal attacks upon their res-
pective opponents arriving at the
conclusion that "the whole debate
hinges on a matter of emphasis." No
decision was given.
