As stated in yesterday's issue of the CRIMSON, great dissatisfaction is felt by the freshman class and by the captain of the freshman crew because many of the men who were members of the football team will not begin training for the crew. Only a few have presented themselves as candidates. Every freshman crew gets its strongest and best candidates from the men who made up the football eleven in the fall. This is the usual custom, and it can not be departed from in the present case. The men who refuse to come out and try for the crew, or at most, delay and make excuses for coming out later on, are deserving of censure. The crew made a good showing in the fall class races, but to win the race with Columbia next June, they need to make every effort and to make use of the best and sturdiest material in the class, which material is represented by the football men. We urge every one of these men to respond to the call of the captain of the crew and present himself as a candidate. The class and the college needs them, and they will be acting foolishly and shamefully if, satisfied with having belonged to a victorious freshman eleven, they expect to see their crew successful through their inaction and lack of interest.
