YALE GAME DATE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

It is said that Yale men are anxious to change the date of the Harvard Yale football game from the Saturday before to the Saturday after Thanks giving. This attempt is said to be in lieu of the recent suggestion to play the game on Thanksgiving Day, which the Yale authorities rightly frowned upon. The only reason that could be given for such a change is that Yale's games with Princeton and Harvard fall so close together that there is not time enough between them for her team to recuperate. The Yale players are said to come out of the game with Princeton bruise, battered, and under weight. But this is not a sufficient reason for so radical a change. Time was when Yale played Princeton and Harvard on successive Saturdays and was well pleased with the arrangement and results. To postpone, the game a week would be to make football a nearly winter sport. But, more than that the CRIMSON believes that any lengthening of the football season would be bad from the point of view of the players and of the College, which suffers enough, as it is, from the football mania. A touch of the mania, such as we have now, is splendid counter-irritant, but it could easily become a dangerous disease in itself. We hope that this agitation will end, like most of its kind, in nothing.
