In its issue of May 19, last Thursday, the Alumni Bulletin, in speaking of the exhortations which have lately been "practiced on" the track team remarked that "attempts to make them think that victory would go to the team which tried the hardest now appear rather ridiculous". Possibly they may have seemed ridiculous if one considered only the results of the entire Yale meet. But whether the exhortations of graduates had anything to do with it or not, there was more than one event in which it can not be denied that the men who tried the hardest won. And in the light of this Saturday's meet the ridiculousness is even more apparent. If one man had entered his event then with the attitude that it was ridiculous for him to think that he could do many inches a second better than he had ever done before we might now be celebrating a moral victory.
We only hope that the track team will enter the collegiates Friday with this same ridiculous idea that the team which fights the hardest can win.
