The Princetonian remarks that since the Yale, Harvard and Princeton lacrosse teams have won three games each, the championship is at present undecided. We should suppose that, in accordance with the action of the last convention, at the instance of the Princeton delegates, the championship in case of a tie would remain with Harvard as holding over from former years. There is nothing definite bearing upon such a case to be found in the rules, and the next convention will doubtless decide the question impartially, if it should come up. At all events, Harvard will consider, with propriety, that she holds the championship until it is lost.
The Princetonian also says that if the protested Harvard - Yale game be declared void, there will be a tie between Harvard and Princeton, each having won three games. Therefore, Princeton and Harvard would have to play off the championship. The writer seems to have forgotten that, in that case, Harvard would have won three games and one undecided, and that Princeton would have won three and lost one to the very team with which she would dispute the championship. It would evidently be absurd for an unbeaten college to share the championship with her defeated rival. It would also be out of accordance with the customary foot-ball precedents, by one of which Princeton obtained second place over Harvard in the fall of '81, although each team had won but one game. We think that the Princetonian, upon considering the matter impartially, will see that the championship still rightfully belongs to Harvard and will acknowledge the fact, in Princeton's customary fair and disinterested spirit.
