Comments on Athletics at
When Interviewed In regard to tho
unlversltj game with the New York
Giants on April 22, John J. McGraw,
tho vice president and malinger of tho
New Vork Hall club, expressed great
satisfaction out the re-estahllshnient
of the foimetl.x mi n tin t game. Ho also
commented on and discussed the uni
versity athletic policy and the general
condition of college sports. Mr. Mc
Graw said In part:
"I am ver glad on my pnrt that the
game with Yale has been re-established.
It Is hIwiijs an Interesting
game and glos us all some good prac
tice. To open the seuson nt the Polo
grounds Is a privilege and a prestlgo
that we are glad to give to such n
worthy Institution as Vale. I am de

university was explained to Mr. Mc
Graw ho replied:
"Tbut seems to me to be a good pol
icy to follow. The university teams en
courage general athletics, and ns u re-
suit of the general athletics you arc
able to get better athletes and better
ball players on jour university teams.
"As regards training tables they nro
helpful In many cases, where a man is
preparing for one big push, as a box
ing match or a track meet, or even for
a game of football, hut they are not
vital assets of a hall player who goes
through a long season. It Is the same
for both college ami professional piny
ers, although tho college season Is not
"However, no matter what they do,
I hope to see the old college gftmo come
back. Let's see things as they were
In tho good old days before the war.
Every year men try to modify bnse
hall rules, but every year when wo
come back wo nro still playing under
tho snmo rules, so I hope that when
this period has passed with all Its ben
ellts we will bo back again as It was In
"Above till, when thoy aro mnklng
vital changes In athletics policy, they
should take the word of those men
who have been through tho game, and
not let outside men working on theory
dictate to them."

FACTS OF MOST IMPORTANCE
Those Which Tell Best About Past
and Future States of Object,
It ought further to bo observed re
specting truths In general, that those
aro alwaj's most valuable which nro
most historical, that Is, which tell us
most about thu past and futuro states
of tho object to which they belong.
In u tree, for Instance, It is moro im
portant to give the appearance of en
ergy anil elasticity In tho limbs which
Is Indicative of growth and life, than
any pattleular character of leaf or tex
ttne of bough. It Is more Important
that wo should feel that tho upper
most sprays aro creeping higher nnd
higher Into the skj, and be Impressed
with the current of lifu and motion
which Is animating every flbro than
that we should know the exact pitch
of relief with which those llbres are
thrown out against tho sky. Tor tho
first truths tell us tales about tho
tree, about what It has been, nnd wilt
be, while the last arc characteristic
cvf It only In Its present state, and
aro In no way talkative about them
selves. Tnlkatlve facts aro always
more interesting and more Important
than silent ones. So, again, tho lines
In n crag which mark Its stratifica
tion, nnd how It has been wnshed and
rounded by water, or twisted and
drawn out In fire, tire more important,
because they tell more than tho stains
of the lichens, which chango year by
year, and tho accidental ilssures of,
front or decomposition; not but that
both of these nro historical, but his
torical In n less distinct maimer, nnd
for shorter periods. Iluskln.
