Without any further Shelly shallying we believe the college may as well squarely face the present outlook in foot-ball, and see just how desperate our chances for success have really become. It is only by so doing, and then, in the full realization of all this means, by rousing from our present strange lethargy to new energy, that even a ghost of a show of winning the championship is left us. To anyone who has watched the men practicing on Jarvis, these words are perhaps unnecessary, for all such must have noticed, not only how few men were at work, but how small, comparatively, these few men were. There is really no material for an eleven which shall be able in point of size and strength to cope with our opponents. The men, collectively, are the smallest that have ever tried for places on an eleven here. The captain has requested that every large man in college, whether an old player or not, should present himself on the grounds and play, but his appeal seems to have fallen on deaf ears. It is evident that there are plenty of men of the necessary size in college; as yet, however, they have not turned out. This is a strange condition of affairs. Do those men who hold our very chances of success in their hands, mean to dawdle away the time until it is too late? With a sense of humiliation, we ask, if there be not enough of college feeling and enthusiasm left, to lead a man to take on himself some private inconvenience for the honor of the college? We sincerely trust so ! Let there be an immediate end to this lethargy which enthralls the college now. It is the duty of every man who is able to support the captain in his efforts to wrest victory from the very jaws of defeat. If these words go unheeded, and defeat once more be our lot, it will be only just that the shame of it fall on those men who have contributed to bring it on, by their shameful neglect and inactivity.
