YALE'S ATHLETIC POLICY.
The Yale Board of Athletic Control has set forth radical changes in the general athletic policy. Great benefits are in the new system in so far as athletics for the undergraduate body are developed, and in the establishment of good athletic supervision. But in the spirit of reorganization, Yale seems to have overshot the mark and evidences a desire to win at all costs. This aspiration to retrieve the fallen Eli athletic laurels seems to have gone beyond the scope of the desired reconstruction, in the reduction of the much discussed expensive semi-professionalism of college athletics, particularly by the resumption of training tables and employment of seasonal coaches. The whole tone of the new rules is very strong and omnipotent.
The co-operative agreement now in force between Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, the resolutions passed at the meetings of the college daily papers, and the I. C. A. A. A. A., all point to a reduction and modification of athletic practices and expenses. Therefore, in view of the evident prevailing intercollegiate spirit, it seems that the questionable attitude of Yale deserves reconsideration, and revision.
