LIGHT WORK AT NEW LONDON
Squad Arrived at 6.15.--University Crew Rowed to Navy Yard and Back.
Harvard Crew Quarters, Red Top, Conn., June 14, 1909.--The University and Freshman crew squads arrived here about 6.15 o'clock this afternoon. The men went directly to the boathouse and dressed for rowing.
The University crew went out first and rowed down-stream to the Navy Yard and back, followed by Coach Wray in the launch "John Harvard." After the University crew, the two University fours and the Freshman eight and four went out. Parker, one of the Freshman substitutes, stroked the second University four-oar in the absence of Waite, who was delayed in getting to the quarters. The practice for all the crews was very light, being mostly for the purpose of limbering up. The work of the University crew seemed still to be slightly off color, but the University four and the Freshman eight went very well.
Proctors Hutchinson and Rogers and Dr. W. E. Ladd '02 are with the crew at New London, and will stay until after the race. Dr. Ladd will have complete medical supervision of both squads.
The crews rowed in the following orders:
University eight--Stroke, Sargent; 7, Waid; 6, R. Cutler; 5, L. Withington; 4, Bacon; 3, Faulkner; 2, Lunt; bow, E. Cutler; cox., Blagden.
University four--Stroke, Richardson; 3, Severance; 2, P. Withington; bow, Whitney; cox., King.
Second four--Stroke, Parker; 3, Smith; 2, Hooper; bow, Forster; cox., Fales.
