To the Editors of the Crimson:
For the past few weeks the interest of the undergraduates has mainly centered on foot ball. The game on Saturday with the University of Pennsylvania drew a large crowd to the field and in its result was very satisfactory to all well wishers of the team. The game was played on its merits throughout, being wholly devoid of unnecessary roughness, and the high score run up against the Pennsylvania men has raised very sanguine hopes as to our success this year. Very few are willing to predict the result of the game at Springfield today, but it seems to be the general opinion that, barring accidents, Yale will win the league championship. A very large number of men are expected to attend the Harvard game.
The most important change which has taken place in the college proper since last year is the removal into the new library. The students miss the privilege of entering the alcoves to consult books which was formally allowed them, but it is thought the efficiency of the library is greatly increased by the change, and the new reading room, with its equipment of reference books, is certainly an improvement which is appreciated.
A movement is on foot among the alumni to increase the general fund of the University and to further that end a committee has been appointed to solicit contributions. It is thought that about $100,000 may be raised in this way.
The action of the glee and banjo clubs in appropriating whatever surplus they may acquire to the help of indigent students has received hearty praise and it is hoped will go far to disprove the charges that have been made so frequently of late of a money-making and professional spirit in college men.
A very interesting course of lecture on "Investment Securities" is being given to the University by Franklin Hopkins, Yale '80, now a member of a prominent New York banking firm.
The series of University Chamber Concerts was begun Wednesday evening and promises to be as successful as in former years.
