The Harvard freshmen seem unaccountably shy about letting the Yale freshmen in their New London race. It is all the difference they perceive between an almost sure victory rowed against Columbia alone, and a doubtful victory with Yale in the race. The excuse alleged that the New London course is not adapted for three crews is a humbug. At any rate they will probably take no action until it is possible to see what kind of crew the Yale freshmen will have. - New York World.
But you're wrong in your logic, good Dr. McCosh!
By fallacious confusion you mistook the allusion,
And you'll find that your X's, if that's what perplexes,
Are only - not Y's; and when old Harvard tries
To make proper amends, take her hand and be friends!
While from Princeton and Harvard one great cheer ascends
For both Doctors - Holmes and McCosh - b'gosh! - Boston Herald.
