To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Some time ago the CRIMSON complained of the lack of class spirit, as shown by the small number of men out for the class crews. Of late, one class has failed for several days to have a crew on the river, not because there were too few men at the boathouse, but because there were not enough from the "first crew," and the few who were there were unwilling to make up a boat with those who had been rowing on their second crew. For this reason the men have been needlessly missing valuable practice, because of a certain athletic snobbishness. Class spirit cannot grow well under such conditions.

This case could be easily remedied if the captain of each class crew saw to it that at least one crew represented his class on the river every day, and this would not be a difficult task, in view of the number of men waiting for a chance to row. 1911.
