As only about two weeks more remain before the class races, the daily movements of the class oarsmen are beginning to be watched with greater interest; the freshmen especially seem disposed to encourage their crew by their presence at the boat house, while every pleasant day finds a good number of upper classmen congregated on the floats. All of the crews are now comfortably seated in their shells, which are in the main rowed very steadily. The freshmen are showing up remarkably well, a fact which looks well for the future of our University crew; their recent race with the Unions has inspired them with courage and confidence in their powers. The sophomores are working quietly but steadily, and their boat is travelling remarkably fast. The juniors are suffering from the loss of their captain and stroke; they are rowing in good form, but lack life. The senior crew now have nearly their last year's crew and when they have settled down together good work may be expected of them. Contrary to the precedent of former years the order of the classes is not the favorite order predicted for the finish. The freshmen are placed much nearer the front than their college seniority permits, while the juniors and sophomores are interchanged by many who are accustomed to guess at the result of our class races.
