The method now in use by the H. A. A. in registering applications for big game tickets and distributing them is thoroughly antiquated. It wastes the time not only of the long lines of students who wait to apply for and to receive their tickets but also of the employes of the H. A. A. itself. Moreover it concentrates an unnecessary amount of work for them into short and sparadic periods, work which could be better done if spread over a longer period of time.
There is no reason why the manifest inconveniences of the present system should be continued. Undergraduate applications may be handled just as alumni applications are by mail.
Blanks applying for seats at the big games might be included in the contents of each man's registration envelope. It would then rest with him whether he wished to incur the slight expense of having the tickets sent him by registered mail. If not be would call for them in person. Certainly enough applicants would be willing to have their tickets mailed to them to relieve materially congestion at the H. A. A.
The advantages of such a system are obvious. The hours which are spent by undergraduates waiting for their tickets would be saved, while the distribution of tickets would be systematic and efficient, making the task of the H. A. A. much less hurried.
