A rowing regretFrom Sir Richard Tucker
Sir, Great Britain has recently and famously excelled at rowing, to which you have rightly given some prominence. However, many readers of my generation and modest achievement must regret that you no longer publish the results of Oxford Eights Week or Cambridge Mays. This would be greatly preferred to the seemingly endless tittle-tattle about well-paid ball-game celebrities.
(Captain of Boats, The Queen's College, Oxford, 1951–52).
