The question which has now come up for settlement is in reality a question of long standing. In its present phase, however, it has assumed a pressing character, and whatever action Harvard takes will of course lead to an important train of consequences. The matter when sifted to the bottom presents these two questions: Is the stand which Harvard has already taken a wise one? and Ought Harvard to withdraw from the foot ball league? To both of these questions we answer unqualifiedly-yes. The justice of the principle which we have enunciated is beyond cavil. It is our duty, then, to stand by that which we have chosen. The consequences of such action, while they ought to be considered, should not change our determination. Harvard is not called upon in the least to sanction professionalism or underhanded dealing in intercollegiate athletics. It is a duty she owes to herself to support the principle in which she believes. In any such action she will be approved by both faculty and graduates, and most of all by our own sense of justice.
