UNDERGRADUATE MEMBERS OF ATHLETIC COMMITTEE.

It has been suggested that the Athletic Committee leave the election of its three undergraduate members to the Student Council. At present these men are chosen at a meeting of the class presidents and the captains of all the teams recognized by the Committee, and it is doubtful if such a group is as well fitted for the election as a better organized body. At the meetings of the presidents and captains only a fair majority of the men usually appear. Of those present only a few at best have any very definite ideas of the position for which the election is being held, or have any particular candidates in mind. The result is that two or three men express their choices, and the election is made in accordance with their ideas.

The excellent undergraduate representation on the Committee in recent years would indicate that the present method of election is good enough. The Council, however, exists for just such purposes, and would undoubtedly be as successful, if not more so, in its choice.
