The Yale News says that before the Harvard-Yale game "every man in the nine was perfection; now he is damnation." It is too often the custom after a defeat to shower abuse on every individual member of the defeated nine, instead of regarding the affair in a philosophical manner, well knowing that in base-ball an almost perfect nine is bound to have its "off-days." After a defeat, a nine should be encouraged to do better in the future. It is bad enough for a nine to be beaten, without receiving the abuse of the whole college, after months of hard work on the ball field.
