One sentence in the extract from the New York Tribune about the Yale crew, published in yesterday's HERALD, struck us as being rather significant, if it faithfully represents the undergraduate feeling at Yale in regard to the next Harvard-Yale race. The sentence we refer to is this : "Successive victories over Harvard at New London in the last two years have given an additional stimulus to aquatics at Yale, but neither this nor last year's brilliant prospects have brought over-weening confidence. Judging from the manner in which the crew works, one would think there were great odds to contend against." The writer of the above evidently thinks that Yale has not heavy odds to contend against this year, or, in other words, that victory for Yale is an assured thing. Such expressions of confidence on the part of Yale should only urge our crew to renewed exertions. Yale will undoubtedly have one of the best crews she has ever put on the water, if not the best, and if Harvard wishes to send a crew to New London that will not suffer in comparison with "Yale's giants," our crew will have to do as much hard and careful training as any crew has ever done in the whole history of boating. Yale has won two races in succession, and is doing her best to win a third. If Harvard's crew does its best, however, between now and the day of the race we see no reason why the crimson should not again come in at the finish ahead of the blue.
