Freshman Crew Notes.
Since the class races the crew has not been rowed on record, but does not seem to be any faster now than at that time. Watriss has been very careful of the men, perhaps too much so. For the most part, the afternoons are now spent in rowing short distances, Watriss either directing them from a pair oar, or from the bank. They also row down the basin, always with a slow stroke, never quicker than thirty to the minute. The strokes are long and slow, excellent for a four mile race, but scarcely with enough life and snap for a shorter one. The men are apt to hang on the full reach and don't succede in keeping the boat on even keel. However, the crew is an average freshman one, and with the month of work they have yet before the race at New London, they should make a great deal of improvement, and row well against their two opponents. The order of the eight is as follows: stroke, Townsend; 7, Rice; 6, Shepard; 5, Duffield; 4, Russell; 3, Shea; 2, Lewis; bow, Forbes. The triangular race will probably take place on Thursday June 29, though at what hour has not yet been decided.
