The fact that all those injured in the late boat-house disaster are now in a fair way to recovery does not absolve the college authorities from the charge of gross carelessness and neglect. The accident might have cost several lives, and because things turned out much better than there was much reason to expect, the whole matter should not be slurred over and forgotten. The college authorities were responsible for the accident, and the narrow escape from something more serious should be a lesson to them which no amount of fortunate circumstances, nor any lapse of time, should allow them to forget.
