As we have before said, the Boat Club can stimulate a far more general interest in boating at Harvard if they will but place in the boat house a number of ordinary row boats for the use of men inexperienced in boating and encourage such men to join the club and use these boats on the Charles. Of course such measures would entail some discomforts and expense upon the clubs, but we think the renewed interest in boating and benefit to the students at large that would result would warrant the undertaking. From such a beginning as this a considerable school in boating at Harvard might arise; men developing unexpected abilities or an unlooked for interest in rowing might through these means the more easily be induced to try for the crews and an interest in such sports as single and double sculling and in canoeing might be stimulated. Especially, creditable contests in single sculling might be brought about, and interesting exhibitions in rowing be given on the Charles.
