The statement of the increase in the demand for gymnasium lockers which we publish in another column is one of the most pleasing bits of Harvard statistics which we have been able to present to our readers for some time. It is too apt to be the case that as a university grows in numbers and therefore in social facilities, the athletic opportunities of collegiate life fall into disrepute. This has been an occasional reason offered to account for an occasional athletic defeat. The steady increase in the number of lockers in use, until now it has reached a requirement of fifty beyond the limit, is an answer to this criticism of Harvard. But it does seem extraordinary that when so many men are daily thrown into athletic competition, there is not aroused such an emulation that there is no possibility of success against the crimson in any branch of athletics. It is a burning shame that when Harvard might so easily hold the field unrivalled, she is forced to make such desperate efforts to maintain herself as first.
