The recent effort which the students of Yale have made to obtain a more commodious gymnasium evidences the present strength of the athletic spirit at New Haven. We can hardly sympathize properly with a school which is not afforded exceptional advantages in athletics, for the reason that the excellence of our own accommodations has become so familiar to us. Yale has labored under many serious disadvantages, both in respect to her gymnasium and also in the situation of her athletic grounds. When it is brought forcibly to our notice that our opponents do not enjoy the same facilities which we enjoy in athletic work, the spirit which they have invariably shown in victory as well as in defeat, becomes still more worthy of our admiration. We sincerely trust that no efforts to further the enterprise, so happily inaugurated, will be spared, and that the efforts will lead to success. And in the near future when Yale may boast of her extraordinary athletic facilities we will look for a list of long contested and well earned victories won by the crimson, despite the advantages enjoyed by the blue. We wish Yale the highest success in her undertaking.
