"The idea that Yale, Princeton, and Harvard have adopted an exclusive athletic policy, playing only among them selves is entirely erroneous", said Major Fred W. Moore '93, Graduate Treasurer of the Athletic Association, in an interview last night when shown various comments of the press on this subject.
"There is not the least intention on the part of the three universities, which the press is pleased to designate the 'Big Three,' of becoming exclusive. We have practically the same teams on our schedules this year as formerly. No exclusiveness as to schedule, games, or rules is intended. Yale, Princeton, and the university simply want to play one another and have found it of great advantage to have the same set of rules. By attempting to make the union close is meant not making it in the least exclusive but merely attaining more perfect co-operation for mutual benefit. The purpose of the triangular arrangement is not to attempt to dictate rules but to agree to certain regulations which are peculiarly applicable to the three universities. Through long years of association with Yale and Princeton in athletic contests, especially with Yale, greater interest is aroused by games with these two rivals, perfectly naturally, but this is a matter of circumstance, not of our action.
