To the Editor of the Harvard Crimson:

I note in today's Herald that yours is the first college newspaper to print horse racing selections. I hope it may be the last!.

It is one thing to gamble on a horse race when you go there and see the horses run. It is another thing to gamble when you don't, a much more day-by-day affair and therefore more harmful.

Our country, alas, is today in the midst of a great gambling wave. It is unfortunate that the daily student publication of Harvard should assist in promoting that wave through publishing horse racing selections. Sincerely yours,   Delcevare King '95
