If there is any organization in college which deserves the support of the undergraduates it is the University crew. If success is any argument for support, the crew can certainly present that argument. Defeated in 1881 in a race where the honors were almost equally divided between victor and vanquished, and victorious last year in the fastest eight-oared race ever rowed by two crews in this country, it would naturally be supposed that the Harvard crew could not possibly lack support. In spite of our misfortunes of this year, we send to New London one of the finest crews Harvard has ever entered in a race and one that will give Yale a hard struggle. If Yale should win this race, she would again tie Harvard in number of victories, while, if Harvard wins, the advantage will be one that will take several years for Yale to overcome.

In spite, however, of the importance of this race and the merit of the crew, the treasurer of the boat club has been obliged to leave for New London with the crew about a thousand dollars in debt. Feeling the injustice of this, a correspondent, "J, '84," has asked us to take the place of the treasurer in his absence and to receive subscriptions from the various classes. Our correspondent heads the subscription with a substantial check. The HERALD gladly accedes to his request and will receive subscriptions for the boat crew of any amount from all persons connected with the university. We feel sure that there are enough men in college to raise a thousand dollars before the race. All checks should be made out payable to the HARVARD HERALD and sent to the business editor of the HERALD. Any subscription will be promptly acknowledged and forwarded to the treasurer of the boat club. Feeling that the debt is a disgrace to the college which should at once be removed, we appeal to all who are interested in the welfare of Harvard boating.
