held so many dead-heads. Instead of its being a joke, however, in
our case, it savors very much of truth. Cannot something be done to
change this condition of affairs ? The " Lance " would suggest
that a few of the dead-heads be buried, and a tomb stone erected
to their memory.
THE track team also needs the student's support. Remember
there is but one more week before State must send her athletes
to Carlisle to compet with Dickenson. Now that we have won
from her in foot ball and debate, and held our own in base ball, let
us show her, that we are not only broad and deep of mind, but also
strong of muscle and fleet of foot. We do not, of course, wish
Dickenson ill luck, but State better.
There is, however, a whole month before the Commencement
sports, and that is time: enough for several new men to get into
shape, if they will only come out and train. If you want a little
exercise, there is none better; if you want to wear a team cap,
there is no other way; and if you have any Class spirit and want
to help your Class along, there is no better way. Do one of three
things: break a record, make a team cap, or break,—well, not
your neck—but at least break away from the everlasting habit
of always being a half-interested spectator.
THE recent base ball game with Dickenson on the home
grounds, shows what " rooting " can do for a team. Per-
haps some of it was a little too personal; but it had its effect.
There was, however, a new yell on the field which sounded like
business, although there were but a few who knew it. Why would
it not be a good thing for more of the fellows to learn it, and let
the next team that plays here have the benefit ? Just show them
how we can yell when occasion demands.
