THE Crew and the Nine have added two more to the long list of Harvard's victories. At New London the former gave a pretty exhibition of their stroke, in a so-called race with Yale; at Providence the latter played and won one of the most creditable contests on record. The remarkable manner in which, by steadiness and pluck, Harvard won the last of the games for the championship, is too well known to need further comment; it is not to our past achievements, but to our future athletic interests that we direct our attention at the beginning of another year. It will not be possible for us again to rely on the return of old players, at the last moment, for victory; and even if we could do so, that is not what is most beneficial to us in the end. Our captains must begin with a firm determination of making the most of their material, and if they show that they have accomplished this, they may be sure that they will receive the support and sympathy of the University, whether in victory or defeat. Pluck and perseverance have been the qualities by which laurels have been won for Harvard in the past, and if the coming managers of the Nine and Crew manifest that they have these qualities, we may look for the same brilliant results in the future.
