The attitude of Cornell relative to the refusal of Harvard and Yale to row her crew is hardly sound to say the least. There are two valid reasons for the refusal. Neither Harvard nor Yale can be expected to enter a three cornered race or to row two races. In view of these facts it is hardly to be supposed that either will forfeit its engagement with the other in order to enter a race with Cornell, particularly when the interest of both colleges and of the country centres upon the Harvard and Yale race more than upon any one event of the athletic year. Our rowing associations with Yale are too honorable and of too long standing to be broken lightly. We have already given up the Columbia races for the reasons given above, and it is altogether unlikely that we shall involve ourselves in any further possible complications in rowing when our present arrangements are entirely satisfactory.
