Editors Daily Crimson:

It is very unfortunate that the Exeter men at Harvard cannot be persuaded to form an Exeter Club here. Again and again has the subject been brought up through your columns, editorially and by communication, but still the men remain inactive. I do not think that this is entirely due to lack of interest in Harvard, but more probably because no one wishes to assume the lead in the matter. Such modesty is entirely out of place, and no man who would be at all likely to have influence in the formation of an Exeter club should be controlled by such petty feeling as fear of over-boldness. I am certain that there are many men in the university, who, if they would only call a meeting of the Exeter men in college, would undoubtedly be successful in awakening true love for old Harvard which has always been characteristic of Exeter, and which would certainly be the cause of establishing a club here, offering every inducement to Exeter men who are undecided as to which college will suit them best.

It is not without hesitation that I venture to refer to so time-worn a subject, but when I see how little attention is paid to a school which has always been one of Harvard's best sources of supply, both of scholars and athletes, I consider it my duty to speak.
