At the meeting of the Inter-collegiate Athletic Association at New York last Saturday but few new measures were adopted. The programme of the spring meeting remains the same. The tug-of-war was not done away with, though four colleges were in favor of omitting this event. It was moved to introduce a fifth mile hurdle race, but the motion was favored by only one college. So, with the exception of the tug-of-war, it seems as if the colleges were pretty well agreed as to what the events of the meeting should be. We are glad to see this, for it is very desirable that the programme should be, as far as possible, the same from year to year. The resolution, "That any matriculated student trying for a degree be allowed to compete in the field meeting," allows members of the law schools or of other schools of the university to enter the sports.
The election of Mr. Lowell as president of the association was, in our opinion, a well-deserved compliment to the great interest Harvard has shown in the inter-collegiate meetings for the past few years, and will be received with great satisfaction by the entire college.
