It is a pity that there are some men in college who cannot learn the common courtesies of life. We have been informed that a short time ago two freshmen took possession of one of the double courts on Holmes Field at two o'clock in the afternoon. Several times during the afternoon they left the court, fastening a racquet to the net as a token of possession, and amused themselves by watching the base-ball game. Several men were waiting for a court, but were evidently too courteous to take the one in question. This sort of thing continued until six o'clock, when the freshmen departed-presumably for dinner. Such an exhibition of selfishness is indefensible. There is only one way to cope with it. And the next time those freshmen try the same plan, we earnestly hope their court may be taken from them. Men who abuse a privilege and think only of themselves are not fit objects of even common courtesy. The more they are humored the worse they become.
