Columbia Freshman Crew.

The Columbia freshman crew is hard at work at present and will probably go on the water sometime next week. There are eleven men at work now, ten of whom will be kept to the end. The crew is much better than the average freshman crew. According to a criticism in a New York paper their general fault is that they drop at the full slack and rush their slides. Though it is the duty of both Harvard and Yale to challenge this year, they have not yet done so, and no races have been arranged.

Following is a list of the candidates:
