There seems to be a good deal said, and much of it in the way of complaint, of the severity of the training which the class crews, and one of them especially, are made to undergo. Cases have been mentioned of men of strong constitutions who have been so completely exhausted by the afternoon's work that besides losing all appetite and feeling out of spirits, they are utterly incapacitated from study or exertion of any kind in the evening. Such a state of over-training as this would indicate is so evidently suicidal to the interests of the crews, that we hardly feel it necessary to make any protest to the men who have been chosen for their skill in directing training. But over-training has always been such a common fault with even the best of coaches that we urge the captains to see to it that in their ambition to turn out winning crews they will not forget what is obviously their own interest.
