TICKETS TO BOAT RACES.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Though the writer of this morning's communication on tickets at the Yale races had good grounds for complaint, yet, on investigation, we find that the situation is the result of unfortunate and unavoidable circumstances. The crew management has at its disposal only some 1600 seats on the observation trains; the trains cannot be made longer from danger of buckling; at present many applications have to be rejected; and there is no possibility of erecting stands on the banks. As for graduates of twenty-five years, they are, in fact, allowed extra seats for their wives. But as for Seniors, there is no way of meeting the case except by reducing the number of tickets allotted to oarsmen and by depriving certain other undergraduates and graduates of their seats altogether. Such a remedy seems to us as bad as the complaint. One possible solution is offered by the privately operated excursion boats carrying upwards of 2000 people.
