1137 ENGAGED IN ATHLETICS

An Increase of 144 Over Figures of Last Autumn.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Statistics compiled from the managers' lists show that a total of 1137 men engaged in some from of athletics this fall. This is an increase of 144 over last year's total of 993. A slight gain is recorded in every sport except tennis in which case the total fell from 149 to 112, but this is at best only an approximate estimate deduced from the singles entries in the fall tournament. This might indicate that there is a tendency towards participating in some organized sport rather than developing individual play. Track shows the largest gain with a total of 143 as against 40 for last year but as there was but one meet scheduled this fall, many of these men did not report regularly. Certain other qualifications should also be made. The seasons for certain sports, particularly lacrosse and rowing were shorter than most of the others. The number of men who reported for hockey, gymnasium work, and fencing which are properly winter sports are also given, so that allowance must be made in the total for a number of repetitions in cases where one man joined more than one squad.

Football Biggest Sport.

As might be supposed, the sport calling out the greatest number of men is football with 212 names enrolled. Rowing is second with 157, while track and tennis are third and fourth with 143 and 112 respectively. The total of 1137 comprises roughly 44 per cent of the total enrollment of the College. The detailed statistics follow: Football. University,  37 Second,  50 Freshman,  51 Interclass, '14, '15, '16,  74 Rowing. University,  24 Freshman,  64 Dormitory,  56 Singles,  13 Baseball.
