The finance report of the Harvard Athletic Association speaks well for the management of Mr. Russell, as the surplus of $267.96 shows an increase of $233 over last year's balance. The management of the association was in every way satisfactory to those who participated in the various meetings, as well as to those who witnessed the exercises. The college has every reason to be proud of last year's achievements in track athletics, and the victories gained there are heightened by contrast with the ill success with which we met on field and water. It is needless to say that the students should support the association in all its efforts, as every man in college feels called upon on his own account to show an active interest in this branch of athletics. The success earned in track athletics for seven years, and the consciousness that we now possess the Mott Haven cup ought to stimulate the new candidates to their best efforts.
