MINOR SPORTS.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

During the winter months a scarcity of exercise, felt in many quarters, always comes upon Cambridge. Why is it, then, that the teams in the minor sports continue, year after year, to have few candidates and to be of lower caliber than the size of the University warrants? Wrestling, swimming and gymnastics have had a precarious existence for some time; basketball fell by the wayside long ago. Yet these same sports are enthusiastically entered in to at all other colleges. Undergraduates are content to have Harvard lamely represented in the minor sports although these offer an opportunity of great physical improvement, and exercise at the time of year when it is hardest to get. The new professional coach for the Gymnasium team may be an evidence of reviving interest in that direction. The Athletic Association or the Student Council, or, better still, the team captains, might well take steps toward invigorating the others before it is too late.
