Our correspondent in another column takes a decidedly strong view of the celebration Monday night; yet there is some truth in what he says. We should say nothing about the matter, but that it is liable to be repeated. We look forward to other victories for our nine, and every advance in Harvard's prospects for the championship must be attended with increase of enthusiasm. The contest will be a close one. Neither Yale nor Amherst has as yet lost more games than Harvard, so that their chances for the championship are equal to ours; and neither of these nines has been defeated by any nine except Harvard. In view of the promised excitement in the contest between these three colleges, and the success which we may expect for Harvard, it might be well for some understanding to exist between the faculty and students in regard to the manner of conducting future celebrations, if we may be fortunate enough to have any opportunities for them. The enthusiasm is sure to be expressed in some way, as it is practically impossible to prevent any demonstration whatever. It has been suggested to us that a conference between the president and several prominent members of the upper class would be the best way to settle the difficult question. At Brown, we understand, some such understanding exists and is accompanied with very good results. The students are allowed to enjoy themselves quietly and on their own grounds; the people of Providence are not disturbed; and the excitement dies out of itself before the hour becomes too late.
Co-operation between faculty and students in the past has been successful, and there is no reason to doubt that the same results would be obtained in the future.
