Editors Daily Crimson:

DEAR SIRS.- It is said that once, as a workman on the cornice of a building lost his head and staggered, some one in the crowd beneath shouted "Cheer him!" The cheer was given and under its inspiration the man regained his foot hold. There were some men on Jarvis field, about half after four last Saturday who recalled this fact in bitterness of heart. Why was it that our first reverse broke the spirit of the men who were there to cheer for Harvard? But the serious part of the matter is the fact that many men are now ready to tear up their tickets for Springfield because of Saturday's defeat. Just because of that defeat, we ought to send an immense Harvard crowd to Springfield. We must show out team that we have perfect confidence in their ability to win. As the CRIMSON pointed out on Monday, the fault was not in the players, but in the fact that they were not prepared for two hours' work instead of one. But above all, they must feel from first to last that Harvard is unwavering in their support. It is just as much our duty to cheer the team when the tide is setting against us as it is for the team to play the game out to the end. For this reason, not only should all of us who can possibly get away goto Springfield next Saturday, but we should arrange as far as possible, to seat all the Harvard men together and make preparations for systematic cheering of our team. There is no reason why the Princeton game should discourage us at all. We have a captain who thoroughly knows what he is about; we have a strong team; and let both have enthusiastic backing next Saturday. The end is not yet.

HARVARDIAN.
