In a country as new as Amercia it takes but a short time for a custom to arise, for a tradition to flourish. Already the football game between the teams from Hanover and Cambridge has become a custom, a tradition. Nor is it in any sense other than an excellent one. For two New England undergraduate bodies to mingle once a year can do neither harm. And the game itself has all the attributes of the best in college football.
The Dartmouth expressed in a recent editorial their attitude toward the game. It is that of a group of sane undergraduates who, all new paper talk to the contrary, like football at its best. The game between Dartmouth and Harvard has been for some time an example of what college football can be. So it is with perfect good will toward all that the Crimson takes the day off from higher seriousness and with joe de vivre written upon the family shield gees down to the stadium to help welcome that institution of which Daniel Webster once said, "It is a small college, but there are those who love it." It is, indeed, fitting that this game should take place on the day set aside as a memorial day for that great man of American football. Walter Camp.
