In speaking of remissness on the part of one athletic team, we are glad to note equal diligence on the part of another. The cricket team has begun its matches very auspiciously. The men have shown that they are not afraid of hard work; and they have, moreover, a just estimate of how much of this work is necessary. In addition to the regular intercollegiate matches, they are to play an important game with Yale. The Yale men, if we may believe the reports from New Haven, are working unusually hard to put a winning team in the field. In view of these circumstances, the hard work being done by Harvard's cricketers is especially gratifying to the college.
