The interest of some of the alumni in college athletics, as shown by the articles in the last Monthly, is extremely gratifying. Graduates have availed themselves before of the opportunity to mention athletics through the regular graduate contribution, but this is the first time that the "Communication" department has been used for this purpose. The suggestions in Mr. Crowninshield's letter are well worth considering. The spirit of the letter shows that he has the welfare of boating at heart and wishes for a general interest in rowing throughout the college, as well as for Harvard's success in intereollegiate matches. Such expressions of interest and encouragement, and such practical advice are what will do most good to revive a general athletic enthusiasm at Harvard. There can be no doubt that Harvard has the material for winning teams. The experience of last year's eleven showed that. All that is needed is for every man to go into some branch of athletics, and master the first principles, so that captains will not be obliged to drill absolutely raw recruits. When teams can be selected from experienced men, Harvard may look with confidence for victory. The united efforts of graduates, undergraduates and faculty are needed to inspire this general interest to bring it to a practical benefit. Such encouragement and advice as are offered in Mr. Goodwin's and Mr. Crowininshield's articles are valuable stimulants, We hope to see more.
