Under the five-year athletic agreement with Yale which runs out this winter, Harvard has won a majority of the games in football, baseball and track athletics, but has lost the series in rowing. This week the CRIMSON will issue a series of special numbers containing complete records of all contests with Yale, cuts of the winning teams, and critical reviews written by graduates who have been prominent in athletics.
The CRIMSON tomorrow will contain articles on rowing by E. C. Storrow '89 and F. L. Higginson Jr., '00, a cut of the 1899 crew, and a complete summary of the boat races for the past five years. The football number, to be issued Wednesday, will contain besides the cuts and records, articles by W. C. Forbes '92 and B. H. Dibblee '99. On Thursday a review of track athletics by J. W. Hallowell '01 will appear, and on Friday the baseball series will be discussed by Dr. E. H. Nichols '86 and W. T. Reid '01.
