EDITORS HARVARD HERALD: It seems to me that the vexed matter of a fence around the new athletic grounds might be arranged by a compromise. Every unprejudiced student will admit, I think, that the faculty have some strong arguments on their side of the question; besides, the fence built near the track, as it will have to be, will not be an unqualified benefit, as every ball player who has climbed a fence after a ball knows.
The most promising plan would be to build a fence of the description given by one of your correspondents along Jarvis and Oxford streets. This would not be so great an eyesore as a fence completely around the grounds, and would effectually prevent any one seeing a game without paying. For when the laboratory and dormitory on North avenue are finished there will be no entrances to the field except such as can be easily guarded.
