YALE CHEERING

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

There is a communication reprinted herein from the Alumni Bulletin concerning the cheering at the Yale game. It is signed Sporticus Antiquus and treats Yale sportsmanship in the stands rather severely. The Yale cheers did seem more frequent than necessary when Harvard was on the defensive, but as far as rattling from the stands is concerned, both in this last game and at baseball games, there can never be any certainty that it does not come largely from those near-collegians who cause so much trouble on other occasions; at least, such a severe indictment of such a very general character is hardly justified. There is little doubt that unnecessary and unorganized cheering (or jeering) should be done away with, but Sporticus Antiquus's brand of criticism helps not at all; setting a good example is the only way of bringing any improvement in the conduct of our rivals.
