Barra Fine Won’t Improve Fields

I wish to take issue with the fine that the MIT Athletic Association has charged to Class of 2000 President Hugo B. Barra in order to “offset damage done to the athletic fields” during the party held there after commencement [“Class of 2000 President Settles Party Charges,” Jul. 12]. As someone who has regularly played soccer on Briggs Field for a number of years, I can assure you that it is impossible to make the playing surface any worse than it already is.
