This spring the Oxford University crew experimented with a new set of oars, designed by the Rev. E. Warre. These oars after a peculiar fashion and their strangeness consists in their being much broader near the shoulder than at the extreme end of the blade. The advantage claimed for them is that the whole blade takes the water at once, instead of only a small corner of it-as is the case of some men with the oars now in use-also that the whole blade leaves the water at once, thus minimizing the chance of feathering under water.
