A short time ago some discussion was given to the subject of tug-of-war seams, and after deliberation it was decided that, while Harvard should do all in her power to discountenance the tug-of-war as a feature of intercollegiate games in the future, it would be best for her this year to send a team to Mott Haven. Now that this conclusion has been reached it behooves as to do everything in our power to send a winning four to the games. Particularly is this desirable in view of Harvard's coming withdrawal from the Association. We must win at Mott Haven, and that this may be assured every stone must be turned. Our withdrawal is determined upon, but to retire from the field victorious will be more graceful than to retire defeated. Tug-of-war, then, must be maintained this year as earnestly as ever here before. But how? Class seams are in order. The winter meetings are shortly at hand and nothing has as yet been done in the organization of class fours. It is somewhat characteristic of all Harvard organizations to delay. We cannot, however, afford to do so now.
