RUMOR OF "BIG FOUR" HAS ONLY SLIGHT CREDENTIALS

According to a statement recently published in a Boston newspaper, Harvard is about to enter a "big four" football league consisting of Yale, Princeton, and Dartmouth.

Inquiries made last night, however, showed that there are few facts to substantiate this theory. Princeton has made no arrangements to play Dartmouth next year and negotiations between Yale and Dartmouth are in the preliminary stages. Although Harvard and Dartmouth will probably meet again next season, no agreement has yet been definitely concluded. Major Moore was particularly emphatic in declaring that Harvard had no prolonged agreement to play Dartmouth. He even intimated that Dartmouth might be replaced before long on the Harvard football schedule in the mid-season game by a team from the University of California, Notre Dame, Iowa, or some other college outside New England.
