ROSINM.UM The Wausau, Wis., Record-Herald, m its editorial columns recently, expressed some very appropriate opinions warning us not to become calloused by the war and to lose our sense of appreciating the enthusiasm of young peo- pie for college and high school ·sports. We'd like to bring part of ]»y jtl , to , yoUl b ^ause we think it is yjrtli the space to reprint in part: :v; One of the things that I hope .will not be destroyed in this Mohawks Seek Share of Big Seven Crown in Weekend Contests Here ROUGH RIDERS FRIDAY'S FOE for college--and high school- sports. It 3 just possible that with the army aud navy taking over in so many campuses, replacing: peace-time studies with more serious business, and movius athletes about on orders which frequently destroy .their natural af- JOatioas, that the tradition of collegiate sport may be broken. -» In don't know how you feel about it, but if I did know I could | approximate your mental age and R» the state of your arteries, to «ay nothing of estimating the reach" of your human sympathies.

But i£ you smile to yourself in recollection of. your own youthful pranks, and if you want to see Alma Mater continue its exuberance .when the war ends, there is stilf hope for you, Buddy, there's life in you yet. Its a fair empirical test of the amount of joy in Jiving remaining m a given individual *or age--real age, not necessarily measured by years, but by the hvlmtss of interest and sympathy, marks its advent by the increasing number of thln ES (hat ««m foolish, and not worth .he effort they demand.
