"Bob" Cook, to the great delight of all Yale men, made his appearance at New Harven yesterday. He was enthusiastically greeted, and escorted to the new training table. After dinner he was closeted with Captain Stevenson and ex-Captain Cowles. Cook is very reticent in giving information about the crew; he does not commit himself even so far as to state its strength compared with those of former years. He went out in the afternoon to look the men over and see what progress they had made with the stroke. it is highly probable that there will be a considerable weeding out of the candidates soon, and the selection of the crew that is to race with Harvard will be made immediately after. The men are in excellent condition, owing in a large measure to the conscientious supervision of Captain Stevenson.
