IT has been asked whether it would be possible for students who live at convenient distances from Cambridge to rent the club-boats during the summer vacations. We should suppose that any such arrangement should be made with Blakey, for he only undertakes to furnish boats during term-time, and he would, of course, be responsible for the return of the boats in September in proper repair. There are probably many who spend their vacations in some place with favorable opportunities for rowing, which they cannot make use of because there are no good boats. If the clubs choose to take the matter into their own hands, it would increase their revenues as well as accommodate their members.
