The directors of the Columbia College Boat Club have planned an extremely active campaign for 1883, their programme including four-oared races for the Childs cup, at Philadelphia, and the inter-collegiate championship at Lake George; also eight-oared matches with Harvard at Boston and New London, as well as competition in the regattas of the Harlem, Passaic River and National Associations. To provide the funds to carry out this programme, the club gave athletic meetings at Madison square on Friday and Saturday evenings. The entries numbered 234, including Myers, Derickson and a number of athletes from Yale, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania.
