The committees representing Harvard and Yale, respectively, met at Springfield on Monday evening, and an agreement was reached in regard to the rules under which the race is to be rowed. It was also agreed that these rules should not be made public until they had been signed by the proper authorities of each boat club. That a decision has been reached so readily shows that there has been much unnecessary controversy. We are glad to see that the matter has finally been brought to a conclusion to the satisfaction of the representatives of both parties. It is to be regretted that Yale insisted upon publishing the correspondence on the subject. Our own Boat Club did all in their power to keep the matter private. That the Yale Boat Club made no such attempt is shown by the fact that in some cases letters from the Yale Boat Club to ours appeared in the papers before they had been received here. The folly of this policy has been sufficiently demonstrated by the ridiculous press comments the controversy has aroused. In future we hope that an agreement will be made to keep the correspondence between the clubs strictly private until definite decisions have been reached.
