Whatever may have been Harvard's hopes for the football championship, they are now destroyed. It was not a feeling of over-confidence which led us to look forward to a victory at Princeton last Saturday, but a sincere belief that the steady training which our team had undergone since the beginning of the year would bring them out ahead. According to the reports received the team played collectively one of the poorest games this fall, but there can be but little doubt that they were clearly out matched. The best of good luck could not possibly have changed the final result of the game. The Princeton rush line was superior to ours, and the backs could not get a fair chance to do any brilliant playing,

In spite of the disastrous outcome of the game there was one feature connected with it to which we may look with pleasure-the enthusiastic support given the team by Harvard graduates. Between four and five hundred were present at the game, cheering lustily for their alma mater. Such loyalty was certainly deserving of a better fate. To these graduates and to the undergraduates who followed the fortunes of the football team, the college owes its thanks.
