The Leviathan, well-known to almost a generation of Harvard oarsmen, has at last succumbed to the ravages of time, tide, and Freshmen. When it was hauled out of the water last fall, it broke in half through sheer old age, and all subsequent efforts to restore it have been in vain.
Built during the winter of 1923-24, the Leviathan has been used every fall since that time to train Freshman rowers. Constant repairs have been necessary to keep it in use, and last fall the Harvard Athletic Association decided to close its career. It is hoped that sufficient funds can be collected to build a successor during the coming summer.
