We wish to call attention to the announcement of the H. A. A. in another column. It is of the utmost importance to the success of the Mott Haven team this year that everybody who has any athletic skill should go to work and train for a position on the team. The contests which are to be given this winter are intended to bring out new men and raise the standard of the men we already have in three events which it is very important for us to win at New York next spring. Those events are chosen partly because in them we need better work, and partly because they admit of practice in the gymnasium as well as on the field. They will accomplish the purpose for which they are held, only if men go in with a will and train for them faithfully. Every athletic man in college ought to feel that it would be partly his fault if Harvard should fail to win the cup this year, and for that reason ought to take every opportunity to help on the work of the team.
