The effrontery of the Yale News in gently waving aside with bland indifference the expressed opinions of almost the entire college world at Harvard upon the Yale team's method of play, and in blindly ignoring the storm of indignation and adverse criticism that has come from both college and public press on the subject, is simply sublime. The HERALD in its opinions has not spoken as representing more than its own editorial board, and would be loth to bring evidence that its views are representative in any larger sense were it not directly challenged to do so by the News. The News perhaps is at liberty to regard the deliberate expressions of the Crimson, Advocate, Lampoon and HERALD as "bencath notice," - so high is it raised above the opinions of its contemporaries, - but it is not at liberty to state that these opinions are not "representative in any degree of the sentiments of the college." The Boston Herald, the Advertiser, the New York Clipper, Turf, Field and Farm and the Daily Sun have testified either their general condemnation of Yale's team, or that the general sentiment of Harvard unites in condemning the team. As a slight corroboration of our explanations on our own account we take the liberty of quoting as follows from the last issue of our esteemed contemporary the Crimson for the benefit of the News: "Monday's Harvard HERALD contained a most admirable editorial on the Yale-Harvard game. We feel sure that it expresses the feelings of almost every Harvard man." If the Yale News has any facts to adduce in opposition to what we have said we shall be pleased to have it present them. If not will it have the justice to cease indulging in wilful misrepresentations?
