We have no wish to continue any controversy with the Yale News in regard to its report on the recent freshman foot-ball game. One point, however, in an editorial on this subject which was contained in last Monday's News calls for further comment. The HERALD-CRIMSON, we wish to state, has no "eagerness to attack" either the News or Yale itself. Such an assertion is not only unwarranted but absurd. And further, we did not "deliberately mis-state" the item, as the editorial so courteously puts it. We gave it what we considered a most natural interpretation, and beg to disagree with the News when it states that "it could not justly be construed as it was." While on this subject, we would also say, referring to "intemperate language," that the charge that the HERALD-CRIMSON made a "deliberate mis-statement," for any purpose what-soever, is certainly forcible, if not even more "intemperate" and discourteous than any expression which could or is even likely to be used without touching vulgarity.
