It is now over two years since Mr. Weld presented to the University the Weld Boat House. The gift was made in the interest of such students as wanted to row, and were unable to be on any of the college crews. The result has been very successful. The interest in rowing which was aroused at the time has steadily increased, and it is especially gratifying to notice the large number of men who have shown during the past year their appreciation of the opportunities offered by Mr. Weld's generosity. It may be doubted whether or not this increased interest is going to benefit the University and class crews. Such rowing as is developed at the Harvard Rowing Club would need a good deal of remodelling before it could be worked into shape for the University crew. But this does not detract from the usefulness of the club. However important the University teams may be, it is hardly fair that they should monopolize all the interests of the college. The chief advantage of the Boat House is that it offers this means of healthy, out-of-door exercise to the great body of men who would otherwise have to do without.
