Statement by Professor White.

The following letter from Professor H. S. White, chairman of the Committee on Athletic Sports, in regard to Mr. Colson, the coach of the crew next spring, will appear in the Bulletin this afternoon:

"To the Editor of the Bulletin:

"In an article in the Bulletin for December 2, on the new coach for the crew, I notice the statement that Mr. Colson will not be paid for his services. As various inquiries have been made regarding the arrangement, it seems proper to state that while Mr. Colson is not technically to receive any remuneration for his services as coach, the committee consider it suitable to make good to him any loss of income incurred by the temporary surrender of his work at Cornell, as well as any extra expense involved in the trip. The joint arrangement agreed upon simply is, therefore, that Mr. Colson should be neither a financial loser nor a financial gainer by the episode. Mr. Colson is a scholar and teacher, and while the primary object of his trip to Cambridge is to give instruction in rowing, the opportunity afforded him to examine the methods of instruction and the administration of the Law School was an important factor in securing his assistance, and in obtaining the leave of absence which was granted to him. Respectfully yours,   H. S. WHITE,   Chairman of the Committee on Athletic Sports.   Cambridge, Dec. 7, 1903."
