The call for candidates for "Second Assistant Football Manager" may easily go unheeded by 1917. Last year but eight candidates appeared. And yet the succession from this position to that of University Football Manager, one of the biggest offices open to undergraduates, is direct. Apart from this the competition which is, for the most part, clerical during the rest of this year and which entails little burdensome time-serving ripens into a splendid contest in the fall. There is an exceptional opportunity to get acquainted with the hundred or more Freshmen Manager candidates and football candidates. To become acquainted with a good proportion of the men in the class below is not to be neglected. And best of all comes the contact with prominent graduates, coaches, and University football men. There are few calls for candidates which deserve such hearty response as this which suffered such a luke-warm reception last year.
