Reasonable Views of University in Need of More Money Dean Briggs on the Suppression of Two Spanish Officers Desert Tale f itli ftin Mr Gis an Gen Gomez Makes One o Tiicm a The annual report Of Pres ChnrlnH Eliot was presented to the hoard of overseers of Harvard college Although Pres Kliot has not made any startling specific recommendations In regard to he does give some very strong general opinions with re gard to He says The conduct of Intercollegiate sports during the year proved afresh that tho management of these sports ut Harvard has been for some years and for that reason evils of overtraining and excessive ex ertion on the part of the members of tho principal teams were exhibited In high A fundamental defect in the athletic organization has been that coaches ot limited who may be either unobservant or can override on the spot the advice of the trainer The result Is that the principal play ers of football are almost all more or less Injured early in the and arc then brought to the principal games in a crippled or exhausted condition while the crew comes to tha final race less capable of endurance than they were a month The remedies arc the subordination of coaches to an expert In or to a medical and the general adop tion of more reasonable views about all training for athletic It must be perceived and adroitled that training which goes beyond pleas urable strenuous exercise Is worse than and that socalled sports which require a dull and dreaded routine of hardship and sufferingIn preparation for a few exciting crises not worth what they They nervert even courage and self because these high cfualltles are exercised for no ade quate Naturally this recommendation will meet with the approval of the entire undergraduate body In far as It de plores But in attempting account for tho cause of this there arc many who believe that he Is mis The coaches may have been partly but several physicians have said that the dampness of Ihc ground at Soldiers Held and the rank condition at the water In the CharleB river In the spring are most to blame for this StIJI this matter created no stir among the on the It was followed by a deep sigh of University The report will be received with deep Interest by the graduates and members of the teaching as well as by all persons Interested In university educa for every suggestion made on this subject by Pres Eliot Is sure to be of The suggestions In this ruHjJOot are not many this Except for a reflection that tho sub stitutes for Greek on entrance examina tion are harder than and that the history of Gruecu iuiil Rome rather than the history of England and the United States are offered for there are few suggestions along educa tional The greatest inteienl In the report is as review of present condition of the great university ut and the moHt noticeable feature which runs through H all is the great need of more Need of More It IN u significant fact that a larger sum will be expended on the Bnidley Martln ball In New York than WUH be queathed to Harvard last The be quests amounted to but and yet this sum Is name what larger than was received in 18S495 or In the three years from 1S83 o IMW

university amounted to and on July 31 last the amount wan On tlie face of this It would appear Hint the fmultt have fur more than but it must be retnein luTfd that the rate of income has fallen from

of educa tion Is to bn It must not bu surpassed by any other In material re The corporation could use the Income of additional endowments to the amount of ten millions of dollars for the satisfaction of none but wellknown and urgent Of the many things needed the most important seem to be At least three new buildings for the Holentltic one for one for architec ture and one for mining the addition of a graduate department to the scien tific one or two halls of furnished chambers with low rents near the medi cal school and near these halls a din ing room similar to the Foxcroft club at an

tho na tion owe to grand work Pres Kllot calls attention to the fact that though It now 23 years slnco he great scientist died the museum which he projected Is unfinished nnd the en dowment of the department remains en tirely The endowment has In fact remained stationary since Agas Speaking of the of 10 years with voluntary Pres Eliot sums up as follows1 Looking back through this period of 10 years to the condition of the univer sity chapel before one cannot be too thankful that the university has escaped from many evils of required attendance at religious and has won the positive benefits which the voluntary administered on the principles which have obtained has procured and Must be College The most Important announcement for the future Is that utter the year IflOO all candidates for

deals with tho administra tive board of Harvard Of its work tho dean says In disciplinary matters the board hud a year of unusual anxiety It sus pended three students Cor dishonesty In written work

thn lightness iWth which many of them talk about That every one of 1800 men Khali be honest is too much to expect but that any considerable part of public opinion should wink ut this form of falsehood is Curse of College This matter Is one which Dean nrigfis has bud very much at heart and he ex presses himself very strongly on the As a reason for this dishonesty lie says The purse of college double
