The Tech. wants a foot-ball league formed "among the New England colleges outside of Yale and Harvard; each college to play one game with every other, and the one winning the greatest number of matches to be champion for the year. We say outside of Yale and Harvard," it continues, "because the advantage they possess in being able to pick their teams from a number of candidates greatly in excess of any of the other colleges, added to several years of experience, at present practically precludes the possibility of others competing with them. with any chance for success. Besides, these two colleges already belong to an organization containing, with some exceptions, the finest players in the country; and, while we have no doubt both Harvard and Yale would return a courteous reply, were an invitation to join such a league as we propose extended them, it seems to us such an invitation, considering all circumstances, would be rather absurd and might be justly so considered by them." The suggestion seems to us an excellent one and one worthy of adoption by the colleges named. Only we hope these colleges would not then become so wrapped up in the interests of the league as to refuse to play occasional practice games, if not matches, with Yale and Harvard.
