THE OTHER SIDE OF THE QUESTION.
The University of Pennsylvania has not met Harvard or Yale, but she has met and defeated many of the best college crews in the country. Neither is it her fault that she has not met them. Yale was challenged last year, and this year Harvard has been. To the latter no reply has been received, and we venture to say that, if Yale had accepted the former, there would have been a close and exciting race. Harvard and Yale claim to hold the first positions in boating on the sole basis of declining to row any races except those between themselves. As long as they hold this position of exclusiveness, it cannot be definitely proved that they are not entitled to the pre-eminence they arrogate. - [University Magazine (Penn.)
