GIVING THE GAME BACK TO THE BOYS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In setting up an all-inclusive undergraduate athletic body, the H.A.A. has moved one more step past the stage of echoing the phrase "give the game back to the boys" in the actual direction of giving it back. By getting representatives of all types of sport together in one forum, by granting that forum definite duties and a definite voice, by stipulating that it must meet regularly, the Athletic Association does its part and puts it squarely up to all students to show that they are willing and eager to take part in the sport program off as well as on the playing field.

In the past there have been major and minor committees and other disjointed, headless student athletic bodies with vaguely specified meetings and duties. Nobody could be quite sure just what or how much it really mattered what the students thought. Now the machinery is in its proper place. The undergraduate must set it in motion and keep it going. The H.A.A. belongs to him, and he will most certainly be heard when he communicates his wishes and desires to the new, powerful centralized student committee.
