KILL THE UMPIRE
Many have commented upon the incessant harangue against the officials coming from a partisan minority at the Harvard-Dartmouth basketball game Friday night. The disgraceful conduct of this small but loud mouthed group is the lowest type of poor sportsmanship. The officials, who were of the highest type furnished by the Intercollegiate League, handled the contest competently and impartially.
The bleacher fan at a big league ball game pays his money and scourges the Umpire to his heart's content. The violent element in these capacity crowds which tax the New Gym for league games seems to have adopted the philosophy of the bleachers. Their noisy up braidings might be expected from the bottle throwing second gallery gods at a professional hockey game, but not from sensible spectators at a college athletic event. In the future those addicted to unjustified yowling might at least pretend that they have come of age.
