For some rears, the cremc de la creme-pf gridiron events has beer Ihe. Yale-Harvard game. That is of couras, according to Harvard's way of putting it. Yale piayec Princeton, too, but then that was Just like Yale plajing Millsaps or Siwash—it didn't count for much The Important fact that Ya'.^ played her last pame of the seasori with fair Harvard, and all the res', of the Eli football schedule led up to that struggle. Princeton cel6rs end tuccklng the dear old Harvard acrer.t. Yale's move may po farther than any conference between athlslic heads toward Ihe eventual restoration of foslbnl! relations between Nassau nnd the Crimson. TL?n again. It may not. Harvard and Priceton arc "funny ("at way."

I.nn!i'n«r Enckwirrt \ As far ns football prowcs.', Is con- rernerj. thc Bis Three is not the nig Three it used to be. Upstart schools In tlie west and mUtdle- west do not hold thc sncrcd trio of eld in any reverence. Football supremacy is no longer vested in there eastern reals. j But tlie Bis Three was thc era-' die of fo-tball. The football world that has swept beyond Ihe confines- of a litle triangle glances back to: that cradle with a rcsiuctful me-! mr.ry. The Caridcos and the' Bobby Dcdds and the Marshall ; Dafflelds may perform great deeds in our day—but there are thc tra-1 rlltkns cf Walter Camp. Porcy !

They have left glorious names and stories. Traditl'ns Is c-loselv Interwoven into the fabric of football and has played an Important part in Its progress. For that reason, it Is pleasant tn think of the old Big Three as going'on {o go I lie r—not quarreling over what is laughingly! trivial. That Is why Yale's newest gesture seems to be a good deed in a 'naughty world.
