The Soldiers' Field.
Many inquiries are circulating about college as to the present condition and future use of the Soldiers' Field, presented to the University by Mr. Higginson. Considerable work has been done in levelling the field, weeding it, and sowing it with grass. A committee has been appointed, of which Mr. Alexander Agassiz is chairman, to raise $50,000 for the buildings which it is proposed to erect. These include a new boat house for the crew, to take the place of the old one farther down the river, and two grand stands, one on the foot ball and one on the base ball field. The money to be expended on the track will also come out of this fund of $50,000. Exactly how much money has already been raised cannot be stated; but it is understood that the committee have met with some considerable success. Work can hardly be begun until next spring, but the committee hope to have sufficient money at that time to push on their undertaking rapidly to its completion. If their hopes are realized, the new field will be ready for use at the opening of college next year.
