During the fest of the term the college will have the opportunity of centralizing the support which it gives to the athletic teams. Two teams, the university track athletic and the freshman base ball, have finished their seasons. The energy which supported them successfully should all go to the help of the other athletic teams which still need aid. As far as attendance upon games goes the college has very plainly before it the duty of turning out more strongly and enthusiastically at 'varsity baseball contests. If the men at the game yesterday had begun to show earlier that they had an interest in the result, the outcome might have been altogether different.
As for the crews, the great need is for better financial support. Both the varsity and freshmen crews for which appeals have so lately been made in these columns, are sadly in want of funds. If the college would come generously forward at this time, it could in no other way show so well that it intends to support the crew in the present difficulty. The crew is doing its best under the unfortunate circumstances which have for a time deprived it of the services of Captain Perkins. Cannot the college do its part equally well?
