Yesterday afternoon there was another cut in the University crew squad, the number of men being reduced to eighteen, leaving just enough to make up two eights. The following were retained: E. C. Bacon '10, F. M. Blagden '09, E. C. Cutler '09, R. Cutler '11, R. M. Faulkner '09, H. Forster '11, P. F. Hooper '11, M. A. King '10, C. Loring '10, L. K. Lunt '09, S. O. Richardson '11, S. A. Sargent '10, P. D. Smith '11, J. E. Waid '10, J. Waite '11, R. Whitney '11, L. Withington '11, P. Withington '09.
W. R. Severance '09, who resigned the captaincy of the crew last month owing to a serious illness, has returned to College and is taking light exercise with a view to getting into condition. It is not certain yet whether the doctors consider his health sufficiently recovered to undergo the strain of regular rowing.
Yesterday both University crews rowed down-stream, the orders being as follows:
University crew--Stroke, Sargent; 7, Waid; 6, R. Cutler; 5, L. Withington; 4, Bacon; 3, Faulkner; 2, Lunt; bow, E. Cutler; cox., Blagden.
Second crew--Stroke, Richardson; 7, P. Withington; 6, Hooper; 5, Smith; 4, Waite; 3, Loring; 2, Forster; bow, Whitney; cox., King.
