A WORD TO SOPHOMORES

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The CRIMSON hopes that this evening the class of 1916 will send a record number of men out for positions on its news board. We need not here enlarge on the opportunities offered for interesting work in a CRIMSON competition. But one thing we should like to make clear and that is that, if there are any men who are standing off from the news competitions in hopes of finding easier means of making the paper through the editorial competitions, they are making a great mistake. Very few men are elected from editorial competitions and those few cannot get the training that is required of the men who advance to the top of the board. More than that, the work of the successful editorial candidates is not easier than that of the successful news candidates. We want all men who care to come out for the CRIMSON to come out in the competitions for which they are best suited, always bearing in mind what we have said above, that to rise on the board requires a training that only a news candidate can get.
