The date for the Harvard-Yale-Colum bia three-cornered race has been fixed for Thursday, the 30th, the day preceding the 'varsity race. The Yale freshmen will probably arrive at New London today. There has been considerable difference made this year in the layout of the course, it having been moved to the east shore about eighteen or twenty feet, which makes it a little difficult for Yale. Captain Hartwell has lately followed the crew in the launch with Cook and Cowles, who have been doing careful coaching.
The Yale men say that the Harvard crew is the equal of any crew that has ever come to New London. It is recognized that the two crews are pulling a stroke very much alike. This year the colors that mark the miles and half miles on the course have the crimson above the blue, this arrangement being decided on because Harvard won in 1891.
