"College Spirit" Again.
(Continued from page 1.)
sure thfct Is tho word? from the en
tire institution, " TJiis is. superb.
Tho author may defy anyone to ex
plain this, feeling certain that none
but an "inspired one will have even
moderate success. Nevertheless, Mr.
Svmnoalumlcus felt called Upon to at
tempt an " interpretation? and"- reajly.,
achieved .wonders. Ho says, "In other,
words, college spirit Is life that asserts
itself, animation that is fel.ln every
department of tho ynlvorslty. It Is
something that causes the studonta and
faculty as well to push everything that
haa for .Its -.ultimate, a.! the good of
the institution niorally and'otherwise,"
This conclusion Ja,wbat wo usually, call.
a "corker." Tho "student" has not
told us where all- this ginger is to go,
but suggested strongly that ho Intended
It to go Into a "game of football." And
tho ingenious Mr, Bympoalumlcus
found In thiB tho "good of the institu
tion morally and otherwise" 1
After Symposlumlcus has given ub
this BplcrPragraph from the exem
plary "deadhead" killer, he drpps a
kronen Niagara upon tho headB of the
"college spirit" mbn as wo know them,
by giving us an exudation of the pro
fessorial gray matter, as follows (Cyn
ipnn Rtmnftctfl this "nrofessor to be
one of the "deadheads"): "On the
whole, the average studont who comes
hero 'with a serious purpose let's put
the lines under thiB gives all tho time
ho can spare outside of hlB course of
study." Why, Oh Mr. Symposlumlcus,
did you not draw from thiB the only
possible conclusion, so that the man
witfcf'glnger"' would -not have rushed,
aver it in his hurry to get to tho
''game of football"? Next comes a
great wail from a'Btudent who deplores
the fact that debates and class func
tions are a failure because there aro
too many "deadheads Is Mr. Ginger
man then really so much In the minor
ity? Cynlcus supposed from the tone
of his vdlce that ho had all creation at
his back., and because football games
are attended -principally by outsiders.
Alas! what will thia tmiverslty come
Another "professor" then assures us
that there 1b plenty of college spirit In
the students but that It la hard to get
It out of them. To him the Individu
alistic spirit 1b opposed to college
spirit. To this Cynlcus flhouted assent,
out straightway began to feel uncom
fortable when tho professor repre
oonuii "nno.lni " llfo" and "college
'social life" and "college
spirit as synonymous. vjueuu.
ArAl&ss E'crapaffodttiall,- basket ball,
sneak day, etc., 'indistinguishable from
"social llfo"? But this professor too,
must be one of the "deadheads," for
he continues: "Then, toq, most students
are not as well prepared when they
en,ter the University-as are those who
enter1 eaBtOfn colleges, and, since we
put them out at .practically thp same
time and place, tbey must work
harder." Once more, alas! In spite of
C b t instil th
tho gingerman and ft 'very numerous
crew, "college spirit" doe Interfere
with work, and one who does not in
dulgo in the luxury of it, can-do iriore
Jn his studies, Although he is a' "dead-
bead." Tbjs professor and1 the one
quoted above, must no loni&r attend
fbbtball ralllca. ' fc
Cynlcus still waits for the term
"college spirit" is tho one great thing a
and Indefinite," and for someone to
demonstrate by x y z. and q. c. d. that
"college spirit'' is tho onegreat thing a
university must have to do the work
for which It exists. Try again, Sym
posie but no "authorities" please, but
proofs that can stand handling.
