The following expression of opinion by Turf, Field and Farm will be of interest : "The majority of the spectators who witnessed last Saturday's inter-collegiate foot-ball contest were probably not up in the rules of the game, and therefore were unconscious of the fact that Yale frequently and deliberately fouled her adversary. Those, however, who understood the rules must have been shocked at the illegal practices employed by the opponents of Harvard. Kicking the ball is foot-ball, but kicking and jumping upon an opponent is not included in the rules governing the game. Such practices as Yale adopted on Saturday last should meet with the disproval and condemnation of all gentlemen who find amusement and physical benefit in the game."
