The great English game of rugby which has found so much favor at Harvard and Yale recently might well serve to get more people out in the open during the spring season. At the present time a spring sport with the universal appeal of soccer is not on the roster.
Rugby has so many desirable features that its tremendous popularity in England is readily understandable. Given a decent chance the British brand of football has easily come to share the spotlight with our own gridiron variety. If we must have over-emphasis on sport, it might be well to spread it around a bit.
If Cornell offered a little spring instruction in rugby, the sport could be used on the fall schedule instead of touch football. Most intramural athletes would prefer to play a real game, even an unfamiliar one, than one of illegitimate origin and uncertain rules. --Cornell Sun.
