One of the true criteria to be used in judging the value of a sport is the worth of that sport to a student in after college life. On this basis the two American major sports are golf and tennis. With regard to the latter the University has ample facilities, but in the former only the good graces of a neighboring golf course mogul allow any direct Harvard participation at all.
Golf is the only active game which stays with a man all his life. It is a game which may be played by all men. It is one of the few games which are profitable to the businessman as well as the sport. It is a game which more Harvard men should have the opportunity to learn while at the University.
Harvard should do everything it can to gain special rights for its undergraduates on local courses.
