A scratch race for eight-oared barges will be held Wednesday, October 25th. The start will be made at 3 p. m., sharp. The course is about a quarter of a mile, from the Weld boat house to the University boat house. Members of the University, even if not members of the Weld Boat Club, may enter into this race by paying twenty-five cents and signing the bluebook at Thurston's. The entries will close Tuesday, and the names of the crews will be published in Wednesday's CRIMSON. The barges have been loaned by the 'Varsity Boat Club. Wednesday morning the crews will be coached by Capt. Davis, F. Davis '95, J. Purdon '95, and Townshend '96. The Weld Boat Club will give a cup to each man on the winning crew.
