THE GRAND STAND.

EDITORS DAILY CRIMSON. - It seems to me a thing greatly to be lamented that the Grand Stand question is to be given up. Why should Harvard who is so manifestly pre-eminent in track athletics be surpassed by Yale in this respect? Is it possible that we are calmly willing to admit that we have so little appreciation of the never equalled record of last year's nine, of the Mott Haven teams for the last six-years, that, for lack of a little energy to raise the sum of $4.500, we will not support our previous victories? To say nothing of the want in itself of a Grand Stand, which is greatly felt, it would give a boom to athletics which is much needed at present. Our spirit of over confidence is too great. The mere fact that the Mott Haven Cup has been in our gymnasium for the last six years won't bring it to us in '86.

'89.
