It has been suggested to us that the ill success of the '97 'Varsity Nine Cups subscription, is in part due to a feeling that the record of the nine during the season does not justify their receiving such recognition at the hands of the undergraduates.

Perhaps when the subscription was first proposed we did not make its aim sufficiently clear. As we then expressed it, the nine should receive these marks of appreciation "because of their hard and faithful work which brought the season to so successful a termination." In other words, the idea is give the men these prizes because of their victories over the representatives of the college which always has been and always will be Harvard's greatest rival,- Yale. Such success is the end which all Harvard teams have in view, and if gained, the preliminary contests leading to its attainment are lost sight of.
