We think our correspondent in another column is perhaps too vehement in his denunciations of Yale and what in general he terms "Yaleism." We are ready to believe that there are gentlemen at Yale, in spite of last Saturday's performance, and that the general sentiment of that college, when the facts and general conduct of their team in the Harvard game are fully and fairly explained, will not uphold such practices as were then indulged in. It cannot be denied that the conduct of Yale's team is responsible for a feeling - and a very intense feeling - of hostility and indignation at Harvard against our sister college, which is perhaps represented by the communication which we publish. For the sake of college athletics, for the sake of inter-collegiate feeling, this trouble is greatly to be deplored. And yet we feel that Harvard, under the circumstances, cannot longer afford to suffer all and be silent, as she has too often done in the past. Unfortunately this is not the first time that Harvard, and indeed other colleges, as our correspondent says, have felt the aggression of Yale methods and practices - practices too long upheld by the unfortunate traditions of that college. Harvard, we are assured, will take no action which can cause her to lose her own self-respect, nor, we hope, the respect of other colleges. But a reform must be made, and it is now the plain duty of Harvard to be the first to move in the matter.
