And now, after our usual short resting space, the college calls "Time" for the third and final bout of the annual struggle between students and studies. Again we come back to Cambridge with the same old resolutions to do a tremendous amount of work, and do it well,- how well the "finals" only can show. But leaving aside the question of studies, which concerns, after all, only individuals, we must stop for a moment to consider the state of the athletic interest, which concerns the university as a whole. We are, practically, upon the threshold of our season of out-door practice. A winter of unusual duration and severity has kept our crews and teams closely confined in the gymnasium, while their rivals at colleges more happily situated have been for some time at work in the open air. Our crews, it is true, are now in regular training upon the river:

"Considunt transtris, intentaque bracchia remis."

But the Yale crew, with six old oars in the boat, has been upon the water for some weeks. Our nine has not as yet played a single match game, while other nines in the league have been getting practice by playing against the best professional teams. It is needless to point out the lesson to be drawn from this state of things. We feel confident that the men who are to represent the crimson upon river and field will do all that can be done to embellish our trophy room, which, to tell the plain truth, has not in recent years been overcrowded with the colors of victorious teams.
