The ladies of New York interested in the Homeopathic College and Hospital of that city are to hold a fair during the week beginning April 2nd. At this fair is to be a "'varsity booth," and an eight-oared shell is to be voted to the most popular college. The shell has been ordered from Waters, the boat-builder, who agrees to furnish "a first-class eight-oared shell, latest model, for a crew averaging 150-165 lbs." The boat is to be "thoroughly seasoned, filled with latest improvements, hull to be commenced at once, the rigging to be subsequently fitted to whatever crew may become owners, as ordered by later specifications." This is Waters's agreement, and he further promises "the boat to be in every respect as fine a one as ever turned out by us."
Yale, Columbia, Cornell and University of Pennsylvania have entered the contest. About ten years ago in a similar contest under the management of the same ladies, Columbia won the prize. This information has been furnished to the CRIMSON by Dr. S. H. Knight, Harvard, '83, who has kindly volunteered to telegraph the result of the voting each day during the fair to the CRIMSON. Dr. Knight states that subscriptions for votes may be sent to him at No. 41 East 12th St., or at the Harvard Club, No. 11 West 22nd St., New York. If anyone can suggest any plan for furthering Harvard's chances in the matter, the Editors of the CRIMSON will be happy to hear from him.
