Athletics in the past have been peculiarly a student institution. The Harvard faculty has lately come to doubt whether this is to be true of the future. A question involving the whole future of this institution has been kept from all interference and knowledge almost of the Harvard students. The new regulations at Brown were promptly referred to the students for their advice. At Columbia, we are told by the Spectator, the question of their adoption or rejection rests with the students. At Amherst and Cornell the students have been consulted. This also was true at Princeton. At Dartmouth, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania the college faculties by forth with rejecting the resolutions have rendered any conference of this sort superfluous. Comment on the action of Harvard is unnecessary.
