To the Editors of the Crimson:
Will you allow me to correct certain misstatements that have been made as to Harvard's objections to some of the Princeton football team? There has been no dispute between Harvard and Princeton on any question of fact, nor has Harvard at any time taken a position which could by any possibility have caused a rupture of the athletic relations existing between the two universities, or a refusal by either to play the football game arranged for today. A question was at one time raised as to Mr. Gailey's eligibility to play on the Princeton team. Upon investigation, however, it appeared that he is perfectly eligible. He has only played two years at Lafayette and one at Princeton before the present year. Harvard has absolutely no objection to urge to the eligibility of any of the men who played in the game today.
