THE recent fire in Thayer brings forcibly to mind the general lack of "fire-escapes" throughout the College buildings. It is not generally known, we believe, that a fire-extinguisher can be found in every Proctor's room, but in case of a severe fire the occupants of the upper rooms in every building would have hard work to get down, and we trust some remedy may be found to lessen the present risk.

THE Captain of the H. U. B. C. is at the Boat-House every afternoon at half past four, and has kindly offered to "coach" any who may desire him to do so. Both the English Fours expect to visit America next year, and it is hoped that many men will try for the crew.
