107 Faculty Called for Review of Tenure Procedures in Letter to Dean Gay

From Professor Hollis.

By Ira N. Hollis.

To the Students of the University:

It is to be hoped that we shall all carry to the game on Soldiers Field this afternoon the friendliness and good temper that marked the football game with the Indians last Saturday. A difference of views on the eligibility of one member of the Pennsylvania team should not be allowed to spoil the contest or to de ract in any way from the satisfaction and pleasure of our visitors in case they win the game. They will be our guests for a few hours and I am quite sure that no misunderstanding or dispute will mar our hospitality.

Furthermore let us remember that there are usually two parties to every question, especially in athletics, and we must assume that Pennsylvania is equally honest with ourselves in their interpretation of the rules. The fact that we might decide a case differently has nothing to do with the matter. Our agreement, which has worked well for a number of years, allows each committee to be the judge of the eligibility of its own men under rules which are substantially the same at both universities. If Pennsylvania does not agree with us we must accept the decision in good faith and go into the game with our old determination to win by fair, generous means. The business of those who sit in the bleachers will be to give a good play their support, even though each side may cherish the warmest feelings for those who have been their comrades.
