This is the manner in which the News talks to Yale '87 : "We must be allowed the privilege of informing the freshman class that the university foot-ball authorities will not allow them to play any game with Harvard unless they put in the field a team with some claim to a decent proficiency in the game. When other freshmen classes have sent thirty men to the park from the first of the season, the class of '87 has never at one time had more than six. Six men out of 170 ! When you entered this college you no doubt felt yourself weighed down by the glory of Yale's past victories, but do not for a minute think that the college is going to keep on and do the heavy work while you look on in indolence. You must do something, and that right speedilym for the good of your college."
