The Football Plight [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 9 November 1938
The Football Plight The Lincoln Lions have to date lost three football ga mes . Many reasons have been offered for these failures . One which is given most credence by the student body is that , ‘ on the field , the men do not cooperate as a team should . It is said that only certain , men have good passes t’hro wn to them ; others none , at all ; _tha’t only a few men get good blocking assistance . If these reports are true , the student body has a right to demand that its team cooperate with each other more Many side-line observers feel that the much-bandied phrase ’ getting a team that clicks has peculiar significa nce to Lincoln University . To para ’phrase an old maxim , A team divided against itself cannot ‘ stand . Individual gloi _’ y must be secondary to the interest of the body poli tic ; although organizations may be a part of one ’ s college life , they can not function independently of the institution .
