Cornell in her management of football has inaugurated a plan entirely different from that pursued in the other branches of athletics. Whereas base ball, rowing, and track athletics are directly controlled by managers, elected by directors appointed by each class, football is governed entirely by a small society called the Cornell Foot Ball Association.
This association, numbering forty-eight members, was formed in 1888 for the purpose of "promoting foot ball interests in the university," and has full power in the choice and management of the team.
The primary object of the association was to establish foot ball as a permanent branch of athletics and it was to carry out this purpose that it was given the power which it has. Now that foot ball is thoroughly established, there is a feeling throughout the university that the association, has fulfilled the purpose of its organization and that football ought now to be regulated by managers as are the other teams. But this method has its disadvantages, and there is a scheme on foot to organize an association to be known as the Cornell Athletic association, which is to have control over all athletic sports and contests. The following were the officers of the past year: President, W. G. Howells, '90; secretary, F. D. Davis, '90; treasurer and manager, J. A. Williams.
