At a meeting between the representatives of Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania, U. of P. willingly assented to Columbia's withdrawal from the triangular race with Cornell and U. of P. The condition of the Columbia crew has recently come to such a state that a 'varsity crew in the true sense of the word could not be put on the water this season. More than half the old men have left through unavoidable causes and new ones cannot be put in training at this late date. Cornell at this meeting was represented by but one delegate, Shearn, who said that he did not feel justified in giving Cornell's assent to Columbia's withdrawal. He offered to refer the matter to the directors at Cornell and will notify Columbia of the result soon. The general opinion is that Cornell will have no hesitancy in granting Columbia's request, for if she entered a crew it would probably be one more in name than in fact.
