Everyone in the University will be pleased with the choice of Mr. Deland's successor. B. G. Waters is too well known to all who are interested in football at Harvard to need any words of ours. He is a thorough master of the game, and a hard, enthusiastic worker. The football team could hardly be left in better hands.
We regret that Mr. Deland has felt obliged to resign his position as Coach of the University football team. His services have been of great value to the team, and his enthusiasm and earnestness have done much to root out the spirit of individualism, to inspire the players with new life and purpose, and to teach them to work together. It is gratifying to learn that Mr. Deland intends to help in training the eleven next year, although he has closed his official connection with the team.
