We are glad to see that in arranging for the Princeton game the management of the base ball nine has deigned to consider our suggestion as far as the sale of seats to graduates goes. For the rest, except perhaps for changing the hour of the sale from seven to nine, the management has run its own course. It still persists in making a large part of the college waste a great deal of time standing in line, in giving the members of the college no better claim than the general public, and in leaving the limit of tickets unrestricted, or restricted only by the temporary whim of the management. We cannot but fear that the plan of leaving the limit of tickets undecided will lead to not a little hard feeling, and the criticism, just or unjust, that partiality was shown. Then we must ask how the seats ordered by letter are to be assigned. If not before nine o'clock, is the drawing of these orders to take place after the line is exhausted or while the tickets are still being sold? In one case injustice would be done to the graduates, in the other case to those in line. The only fair way is to treat both alike and have the first sale of tickets carried on wholly by drawing written orders. It will mean to be sure, more work for the management but it will also mean much greater satisfaction to everyone else concerned. This seems hardly too much for the college to expect of its base ball management.
