AN HONORABLE DEFEAT.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Yale's decisive victory in track on Saturday, coming as it does near the end of a season ushered in by a series of Harvard athletic victories, is a severe blow to our hopes and expectations. But Harvard men should not be discouraged by the showing of the track team in the Yale meet. As nearly as is humanly possible, the men ran true to form, and in several cases even exceeded expectations. The Yale track team won on its merits; it demonstrated genuine superiority in nearly every department of the game. Every event was a desperate struggle characterized by the extremest valor on both sides. Even to be vanquished in such a battle is an honor. We cannot suppress our admiration for the spirit which has made possible at Yale the construction of such a wonderful athletic machine upon the ruins of last year's annihilating defeats.
