To the Editor of the CRIMSON:
As an old "grad" I want to go on record that things very definitely have gone to the dogs since the good old days when I was in College. I return to find mass meetings, and effigy burning, and banners on the campus--and when I say campus, I mean campus and not Yard--reading Hit Hard Harvard. In a word, Harvard simply hasn't got the good old lack of spirit she had in 1925. This lack of spirit in those days was a precious thing, and a contagious thing. Every Harvard team from football to chess reflected it, and lost gracefully to Yale with a consistency that enervated H men from the third story cheer leader to President Lowell. By Gad, there never was a class like 1925, and the old lack of spirit prompts one to rise up and demand that the College mend its ways. Are we men or are we mice? Come on, fellows. Let's get aport and not back the team the way we didn't back it in '25. Parke Cummings '25.
