Have you ever given a thought
to your paper-boy who delivers
your paper at your door, in
freezing weather, or your milk
man who is right on time with
your milk for your cereal? Rain
or shine, hail or blow, hot or
cold, we are serviced every day
by carriers and truckers, and
delivery of all kinds of ,
merchandise. These are the un-i
sung heroes we take for granted.
Our modern life is so geared to
smooth efficiency in keeping us'
supplied with our wants and ouri
necessities, we never give a
thought or pay any heed to the
men whose duty it is to keep
this efficiency up to scratch. I

Webster’s dictionary describes
the word sportsmanship very
vaguely. It implies that this
word has a rigid set of limits
pertaining to its meaning. But
like most descriptions in. a dic
tionary, where because of space,
it has to be concise. In other
words, their description is some
thing like a summary of a book,
a speech, or a movie. As a re

that your comprehension of a 1
book is a lot greater after you
have read the entire book than
what it was after reading the
summary. Because of this there
are a lot of people, maybe you
are one of them, who have a
rather confused idea of the
meaning of this rather important
word. You notice I used the
descriptive word “important” in
describing this word sportsman
ship. If this is your opinion,
I'm sure you will profit by read
ing this article.
First of all, what’s your des
cription of sportsmanship? Is it,
something which has a rigid i
set of limits which pertains only
to sports? Or is it something
with ho set of limits at all?
In other words, are you to do
good to everyone and in all ob
I’m not saying that sportsman-'
ship doesn’t concern sports. If
I did so I would be only trying,
to deceive you. My objective is
to show you, or I should say
try to show you, that sports-,
manship goes much farther.
In thinking of sportsmanship
most people think of it in a
negative viewpoint rather than
a positive one. In sports this
negative viewpoint is sometimes
