Now that the Columbia race has been rowed, and Harvard has so completely disposed of the absurd story of her fear of last year, we hope that measures will be taken toward giving up the Columbia race. We can afford to withdraw after such a victory, and devote ourselves entirely to Yale, as Yale devotes her energies entirely to defeating Harvard. The disadvantages of the race with Columbia are too many and too well known to require description. We think we voice the sentiment of the college in asking that the race in the future be given up. Columbia is satisfied, we hope, and we are sure that Harvard is. Harvard cannot afford to divide her energies, and Columbia will come to recognize this in time.
