As will be seen by the article in another column, our crew is doing finely at New London and improving every day. Although the changes in the boat during the last month have caused a fear to spring up in the minds of some that our crew would be weakened thereby, boating men assert that the changes have strengthened the boat, and when we remember the changes which took place a year ago, just before the race, we may rest assured that the present changes will no doubt bring about as good results. Although the Columbia race, which occurs today, is not expected to occasion our crew much difficulty, the Columbia crew, although to a great extent composed of new men, are rowing in much better form than was expected, and will probably row for all they are worth. As the Yale crew have not yet reached New London, we have no positive knowledge of their condition or powers, but too much reliance must not be placed on the reports which the Yale papers so diligently circulate. Some of their men are new to the work, but all have trained faithfully and hard, and are determined, if possible, to put an end to any such exhibitions of processions as the spectators have been obliged to witness for the last two years. The confidence in our crew, however, is too well founded to be shaken by mere reports, and the college confidently looks forward to another victory over Columbia today, to be repeated when the Crimson and the Blue again measure blades on the Thames.
