The two University crews raced yesterday over the three and three-eighths mile course, from the Weld Boat House to the Union Boat Club. The first eight gave the second a start of twenty seconds and did not lap them until they reached Harvard Bridge. From there to the finish the first crew steadily gained, finally winning by about two feet; time, 18.12. The eights were fortunate in finding the bridges all clear, but in passing under Harvard Bridge the first crew was slightly hindered by their oars hitting a pile beneath the water. The men were brought back from the finish in the launch.
