The Harvard Advocate, Vol. 46 free pdf Excerpt from The Harvard Advocate, Vol. 46 We must encourage our team with support financial, physical and moral. We must subscribe, practice and encourage with a hearty enthusiasm such as we owe our college. We must seize the first opportunity, and that is foot-ball. Let us strain every nerve to win the championship which has been a stranger to us ever since '77. We have a capable captain, and good material. Why should the other elements of success be lacking? They need not, and the problem resolves itself into this, if they are present we win, if they are lacking we lose. Another opportunity now open to us is a judicious use of the suffrage permitted us as members of the different athletic associations in college. It is our duty as members of these associations to attend the business meetings and help to elect the most capable officers irrespective of personal feelings or society applications. We have failed miserably in this duty during these last years. The Athletic Association with its large membership seldom induces more than two score men to struggle into Holden Chapel and hold up their hands at intervals, and the candidate is elected who has the most friends willing to trouble themselves enough to come and vote. Can we not rouse ourselves to reform or must we wait till matters become still worse? We have suffered defeat so long, that we have forgotten how to celebrate. The lower classes have never even learned the art. The only class now in college (we hope '90 will not take offence at this) who has seen or shared in a real celebration is '89 and the remembrance of even those merry times, is becoming rusty. We must teach these novices how to celebrate. On the first day of the term, the members of last years' varsity crew elected Mr. James R. Finlay captain for the ensuing year. We are convinced that the choice is a good one. As it has never before been considered good policy to select a captain from below the Junior class, this election carries with it the more honor, in testifying that the qualifications of the captain-elect are so exceptional as to justify breaking through a long established custom. We feel that Mr. Finlay will be a faithful and competent captain and we wish him every success. Hazing at Harvard has become something unique and not to be commended. The old theory of hazing in American colleges was that it showed the freshmen, coming to college with a vast sense of their own success in passing the entrance examinations, that their position was after all but a modest one at the very foot of the list. It was said that a class that for any reason escaped the ordeal of hazing was apt to be marked all through the four years by intolerable "freshness." This theory, even though the practices were often brutal, is not without a certain plausibility, but it has long since been abandoned. The rush of Bloody Monday is a very innocent and perfectly meaningless scramble. The sophomores do not stand freshmen on their heads and make them sing hymns, or commit any of the other absurd cruelties of which college traditions are full. The state of things is quite the reverse. Certain freshmen, distrustful of attaining on their merits the popularity they seek, provide punch for the upperclassmen with the hope that if these latter have partaken of their hospitality, they will be more likely to advance their interests. The Bloody Monday punches, as occasions of dissipation are demoralizing to the whole college. In reality they are a "swipe," pure and simple, and as a matter of fact an unsuccessful "swipe." As such they deserve the cont1000empt of all right-minded students, and the sooner the freshmen see these performances in their true light, the better it will be for the college. The upperclassmen, who encourage this swiping are old enough to know better. They deserve even severer censure than the freshmen who make the "swipe." The narrowness of the common idea of the function of th
