The Olympics, since the present management got control of the Club, have made a desperate effort to put the organization in the position it once proudly maintained. We do not mean to insinuate that the Club lost caste during the period the old fogies were in power, but that it ceased to rank as a first-class playing organization. Since a change in the management, not a few mistakes have been committed, but that was to be expected–nay, was unavoidable. The Olympics, we hear, propose now to take position as a first-class amateur organization. If, as reported, Bomeisler, Berkenstock, Ned Gaskill, and some others have joined it, it will certainly acquire that distinction. Little Harrop, we presume, will retain his connection with the club, as will some others of the nine, who are gentlemen as well as players. The Olympics by this action will revive the old prestige of the club, and give tone and stamina to the game.
