For the first time this year, the opportunity is offered for organized undergraduate support at a baseball game. The Princeton contest today will be preceded by a parade to Soldiers Field; the University Band will do its share; a cheering section has been reserved; and cheer-leaders have been appointed.
Moral backing contributes greatly to the work of a team, and a loyal grandstand has more than once been the cause of an eleventh-hour victory where defeat threatened. Last Saturday, ten thousand people witnessed the Harvard-Princeton game at Princeton. With such an audience to play to and with the inevitable confidence of playing on their home grounds, the Tigers were victorious. Today the advantage lies with Harvard. Why not make up for the apathy we have thus far displayed to the team, and turn out to a man for the first big home game of the season? Why not show the invading Princetonians that the Crimson can offer as emphatic support as the Orange and Black? Why let flaccid excuses interfere with a record attendance?
Fall into line in front of University Hall this afternoon! March to the field and cheer whole-heartedly! And above all crowd the stands!
