NOTICE.-The dinner to be given to the University crew will take place at Young's Hotel, Friday of this week at 7:30 P.M. The price, $2.50, is reason-able, and a large number of men should put down their names at Bartlett's at once, and not "wait and see who is going." The crew, after their victories last June have a right to expect a well attended dinner, and a warm reception and no flimsy excuses should be given, but every man, who can possibly, should surely be at the dinner. Men can do more towards encouraging the crew by such an attendance than they can in any other way with their two dollars and a half. All wine ordered at this dinner must be paid for on ordering unless private arrangements are made with Mr. Whipple before the dinner. We beg all those who intend to go to the dinner to sign at Bartlett's as soon as possible, and if proper interest in boating is shown, one hundred names should be put down shortly.
