A brief glance at some of the men will show a lot of fine material. Simms, the stroke, pulled two on the crew last year, and was in the Yale-Harvard race. He has been rowing in the bow this year till Ives, who had been rowing stroke, had to stop rowing from heart trouble. Hagermann has had the training of being an oar on the Cornell crew. He has had to change his stroke slightly and adapt it to the Yale stroke. Gould and Pond are both new men, but they are heavy and row well. Ely was substitute on the crew last year and has greatly improved from his training this year. Mills played tackle on the foot ball team this year. Crosby is also a foot ball man; he played end rush. Balliet rowed on his '92 class crew, and is a good oar. Klimpke has long been a promising candidate for the crew, and of the great Heffelfinger, the mere mention is enough.
During the Easter recess the crew is going to Philadelphia to be coached by Bob Cook. The importance of this fact can hardly be overestimated, as by common consent Cook is the first crew coach in America.
