After Meeting with Harvard Admin on ‘Swatting’ Attack, Black Student Leaders Say Demands Remain Unanswered
"He doesn't like the game, he doesn't like the crowds, and he doesn't even like the band," declared William J. Bingham '16, Director of Athletics, last night as he rapped the attitude towards athletics of President Robert N. Hutchins of Chicago.
Bingham's speech was one of the four featured addresses at the "Victory Dinner" celebration of the 7-0 triumph over Yale. A crowd of over 400 men, including the complete J.

Braced by 40 pitchers of beer, the band provided almost continual musical entertainment, while the menu for the banquet included such delicacies as "Petits Fours aux Booth, Healey, Glueck and Daughters."
Bingham pointed out that last spring saw 11 out of 11 crew races with Yale won by Harvard and this fall saw seven out of seven football games with Yale garnered by the Crimson, but added, "We're going to have a long, hard winter."
