The reconsideration of the Yale challenge is a matter for the freshman class to think of during the coming recess. It may have been settled technically at their last meeting, but it has not been settled decisively, we hope - for the action of the class was scarcely more than a mere evasion of the real question. It is well to bear in mind that the old adage of a "stitch in time saves nine" is as true as ever it was, and the feeling of distrust which is prevalent at Yale, if not done away with at once, will be a disagreeable factor in all our athletic relations with that college for the future. There should be no false sentiment that the class would be "going back on itself," if another meeting should be held, and especially should the feeling be avoided that Yale is attempting to "bully" Harvard into rowing, as we have heard it suggested. That is not true. The attitude which Yale has assumed has been gentlemanly in every way. Every member of Ninety should look into the matter for himself, and remember that he has a duty to perform to the University as well as to his class and to himself.
