The examinations are over and some part of the energy that has been given to them must find new outlets. The winter meetings of the Athletic Association are near at hand and those who intend to enter in any of the events will now begin active practice. Though we have already spoken of some of the events, it does not seem out of place to call the attention of the college to some of the points in which it will require great energy to keep the meetings up to the standard of the last few years.
In boxing, wrestling and fencing good men are always leaving, and, to keep up the standard, new men should come out. New entries are particularly needed for the horizontal bar and for tumbling. For the last two years, that is ever since the institution of the prize, three men have competed for the prize in general excellence, though there have been many other men in college who would have made good contestants in all the events. We hope to see this year a larger number of entries for this prize.
We would remind the freshmen that they should not hesitate in putting down their names for any of the events. The standard attained is not so high that they should despair of success. Let '86 make as good a showing as in the fall meetings.
