A meeting was held in New Haven on Saturday, attended by Walter Camp, S. J. Elder of Boston and some fifteen members of the Yale academic and scientific faculties, to talk over the football question. While a number of the faculty present expressed no opinion, and two or three favored either drastic measures against football or important modifications of the rules, the burden of opinion as expressed was against interference with the game. One ground for this seemed to be that Yale, in the case of the Springfield game, had been unduly charged with violence as compared with Harvard, and that official interference with the game now would be an admission of the burden of the accusation against her.
A member of the faculty, who was present, and who says that in his opinion the game, if it is to continue, must be modified, both in its rules and its gambling spirit, also says that he is convinced by the utterances at the meeting that there will be no interference with it by the Yale faculty as the result of recent events. The meeting was unofficial and in no wise affects the Yale faculty's position as a body, while indicating in a general way what its sentiment is likely to be.
