The question of the Yale freshman race is again up for discussion. Ninety refused the challenge, while eighty-nine accepted it. There is, consequently, a precedent both for refusing and for accepting. Two races by the freshmen would be folly. The New London course is unfit for more than two crews, so a race between three crews would be folly likewise. The freshmen cannot throw Columbia overboard as ninety lost the race last year. If they accept the Yale challenge they will do it with their eyes open. Some answer should be sent soon.
