The editors of the CRIMSON consider it their duty to guard the interests of all institutions at college with a watchful eye. If anything is found amiss, it is censured; if anything deserves commendation, no one is more eager than the CRIMSON to bestow praise. We have expressed our opinion, and, we think, the sentiments of the college about some of the radical faults of our foot ball system. We have another suggestion, which, if acted upon, we think would work a great change in our method of playing foot ball. It is this. Mr. Lathrop, the trainer, has been engaged at an assistant professor's salary, and will of course be willing to devote all his time to our athletic interests. As far as we know, his field of usefulness is at present limited to track athletics. But, surely, that cannot occupy all his time. In the light of a suggestion, therefore, for we do not presume to interfere with Mr. Lathrop's plans, we propose that, by a careful study of foot ball as it is played here and at other colleges, he fit himself to coach our teams. Without playing himself, he can become a perfect coach. He will then be able to relieve the captain of a great deal of work, and, what is of the most importance, to hand down a knowledge of the game from class to class. Foot ball will then not have to be learned over again every year. If this suggestion be adopted, we have no doubt that there will be a marked improvement shown in the playing of Harvard elevens.
