You gel a.gowi insight'into one of .jjie'hiost-cliscussed unglcs of "bij; time" 'intercollegiate football in the reports - of the recent party ;it Moiitclair, N. j., where Yale football players and alumni gathered for a frcr.-for-all dis- - ' cussion of Yille's current atliletic for- tuneg. A thember of this year's somewhat unfortunate football team explained that the fun of playing '.v:is more jni- p l brTnnl'{h''t?ii ll 'i i olli'nViip a string of victories; and ah ardent old grad then expressed himself as follows: "They're a tine bunch of boys, all right, but if they don't win football games that breaks down one of the strongest tics between us and present- day Yale." Right there yon have MIP. traditional alumni attitude in its bald'.'st form. It is this desire on the part of the graduate, to revive his sentimtnlul loyalty by a regular chain of victories, that is largely responsible for the evils of "overemphasis" in college football. A Lesson injustice - An Englishman recently wrote a 1.letter to the London Times to coni- "mciid the London police and courts . for their promptness in disposing of a case of burglary. His letter—revealing, as it does, a kind of lav enforcement DUT OUR WAY which is rcgrctliiljly s'.'.'Mtige on tliis side of tlic w;iter—is worth- iiuoting here: "The goods wore slot::n on Siiturday inorninjf," ho writes. "The burglar was caut'tit «'!ii lla- ifowls recovered on Satin-day afternoon. 0:i Monday the burglar was commuted by u magistrate to stand his ill tlie Old Bailey. On Tuesday lit was duly tiled, convicted, and suntunwii." Probably speed of this kind is somewhat axceulional, even in Kng- hind, whore quick justice is proverbial. Nevertheless, the object lesson is too plain to be missed. With police and courts thai work so fast, is il any womtcr thai England has less trouble with 'crime waves" than we have?
