The freshmen class, by taking the initiative in collecting temporary instead of permanent captains for its class teams, has made a step in the right direction. This action on the part of '92 will not only serve as a precedent for future freshmen classes, but the benefits which are bound to follow the new mode of conducting freshman athletics will soon make themselves felt on all university teams. In previous years the selection of a good man for the captaincy of the nine or crew was merely a question of chance, and while oftentimes the choice proved a fortunate one, still there have been captains elected who were totally unfitted for their places. It may be well to remind the present freshman class that it is the largest one which has ever entered college, and that with the increase in numbers and a new vigor infused in athletics, the college has a right to demand of '92 a record of which it may not feel ashamed.
