Turf, Field and Farm says editorially: "The college authorities should see to it that the students do not incur heavy expenses on account of their athletic clubs; that the tax is kept within reasonable bounds, and that indulgence does not run to excess, but further they should not go. Unless there is rivalry, an incentive to action, the interest in athletic games at colleges will grow lukewarm, and from Harvard and Yale and Princeton and Columbia will come the complaint voiced by Herr Von Gossler, the Prussian minister of education. He has issued a circular advising that all the boys in the higher schools of the country shall be made to play games. The physical condition of the pupils is not what German opinion would have it. While the boys are proficient in their studies, they are weak, listless and unenterprising. The remedy is to be sought by official direction in out-door games requiring skill and agility. The words of Dr. Crosby would have had more weight had they been less sweeping. He spoke like an extremist."
