The Harvard Advocate, 87 (20 May 1909) 82

This week we are printing two articles presenting the opposite sides of an ancient controversy–that between the sport and the grind. The discussion, though never final, is always interesting, when it is the attempt of each to justify himself without injustice to the opponent. No one need hope to settle the dispute. But if all prejudice and misunderstanding are cleared away, it is possible for each partisan, while retaining his own opinions, to see that there is much reason in the other man’s contention and after all that’s the best excuse for most arguments; for each side to acknowledge sympathetically the right of the other to his own point of view. And in this case the divergence–in ideals–may be not so great as is thought.
