One of the most encouraging signs in intercollegiate football is the appointment of Arnold Horween as football coach at Harvard. Encouraging it is due to the fact that a young man and a former graduate has been chosen to fill this important position. This seems a direct rebuke to those who have raised the cry of commercialized college football.

Harvard has the prestige and the power to attract almost any coach she should desire. The coaching position of our Crimson rival is a position that many more famous men than Horween might welcome. The fact is, however, that one of her own sons has been picked for the position.

Arnold Horween, now twenty-seven years old, has the distinction of never having played on a team that has lost to Yale, a distinction few can claim. Let us hope that the teams he coaches will not have the same success. However, we wish him as much success as friendly rivalry will permit. Yale Daily News
