PRO BONO PATRIAE.

That the University intends to live up to its admirable war record in the trying times of reconstruction which we are now passing through was shown by the unhesitating decision to call off the Pasadena game at the request of the fuel administration. The trip would have been of undoubted advantage to the interests of the University, and its cancellation comes as a really great disappointment to all men who are interested in the welfare of Harvard. Yet the Athletic Committee has not hesitated to sacrifice the University for the benefit of the country. Such peace-time service is without doubt harder to give than many of the sacrifices we have willingly made in the glamor of war. Any other way, however, of meeting this real crisis through which the country is now passing would have been at absolute variance with the patriotic traditions which have guided the policy of Harvard since its founding in pre-revolutionary days.
