As a neutral but interested observer of the current Yale-Harvard difficulties we feel that an immediate, amicable solution will be far more worth while than a point gained by either side.

Both universities have valid arguments in their favor on the question involved, but it would not be impossible, we believe, to reconcile their different viewpoints rather than to accentuate them by further antagonism. It seems a pity that a break in athletic relations, no matter how minor, should occur between these two institutions now. Princeton can well testify to the unsatisfactory and inconclusive nature of this method of solution. On the other hand, abuse and impatience over a fait accompli brings the problem no nearer to a satisfactory conclusion.

Yale and Harvard have too long a record of happy athletic relations to break down at this point. We feel assured that they will reconsider their disagreements carefully and maintain an enviable association on its previous inviolate plane. --Princetonian
