The Freshman rowing at the Weld opened yesterday with two eight-oared crews, one four-oared crew, and several substitutes out. All the men who had rowed before were put in one boat, but no further attempt was made to grade the men. A. O. Stevens '97 coached from the "John Harvard" and D. D. Evans '01 from a single.
One Junior and two Sophomore crews were out. There will be no crew formed from 1901 for several days yet; in the meantime several Seniors will assist in the coaching. The fall rowing plans with regard to races are still unsettled, owing to the absence of Captain Sheafe of the University crew. He will return to the Law School in about three weeks.
