This afternoon there is to be a conference between several members of the Faculty and some twenty or more undergraduates, who are interested in athletics, to discuss the celebration of athletic victories. We are glad that such a measure is to be taken, for we think that this is the possible way of bringing about a complete understanding between the Faculty and the students upon this subject, and the result will doubtless be an arrangement that will be satisfactory to both. It is a great satisfaction to know that there was a movement on foot among the students, before the announcement of the conference of today, to try to arrange for a similar meeting with the authorities. It showed that the students realized fully that they had gone too far in the last celebration, and were willing to meet the Faculty half way in making some definite arrangement for the future.
Whatever arrangement may be agreed upon by the student representatives at the conference today, it is plainly the duty of the students to support it heartily, and to follow the regulations, that may be determined upon, to the letter in the next celebration.
While we are again on this subject we should like to retract one thing which was implied in our editorial of yesterday and that is, that only the younger men in the Faculty are on the side of intercollegiate contests. We did not mean to imply this at all, for we know that there are a considerable number of the older professors who have earnestly stood up for these contests and we honor them for it.
