With the victory of Cambridge over the Boston Latin school last Saturday, the struggle for the interscholastic foot-ball cup is practically at an end. Many thanks are due to the donors of the cup for the successful outcome of their plan. The Cambridge and Boston schools as well as the Roxbury Latin, and, indeed, all the fitting schools in the vicinity of Boston prepare for Harvard. From them we receive, to a large extent, our material for our athletic teams. It is for our own interest, therefore, as well as for theirs, that a cup be offered. The success of the plan this year in foot-ball leaves no doubt as to its advisability, and is an argument also, for the offering of similar cups in other sports. Base-ball as well as foot-ball, should be stimulated, and there is no better plan for accomplishing this end than the one adopted this fall. Harvard athletics must be sustained in every legitimate way, and this, certainly, is open to no criticism.
