We are glad to announce authoritatively that at last the corporation have seen fit to vote that it was advisable to appoint a director of field sports. Besides, what is more important, they voted to supply a sufficient salary if the suitable person is found. Ever since James Robinson was sent away we have sadly lacked a trainer and constant requests have been made for one. But the corporation refused to vote a salary for such an office and stated that they had "no money." Where the money has now come from is not stated ? But let us be thankful for what we have received, however late it comes.
The corporation hope to find a person to fill this place who shall be at once a college graduate and long identified with college sports. Such a man as Mr. Camp, of Yale, would be what they desire. We are sure that if such a person was found he would fill the place most satisfactorily, but we trust the corporation, in default of a better man, will not take one whom they hope can be trained up to his duties. Such a person would be untrusted, a failure in every sense of the word, and might do much more harm than good to our athletic interests.
