Practice of Yale Crews
Yale Crew Quarters, Gales Ferry. Conn., June 21, 1909.--At 11 o'clock this morning the university eight and two four-oared crews rowed up-stream. An outrigger's breaking in one of the fours forced it to return after rowing a mile. The other four continued for another half-mile, but the eight did not turn back until it had rowed two and a half miles. In the afternoon the freshman crew rowed down-stream two miles at a slow stroke, and the university eight was taken down to the railroad-bridge in the launch and rowed back in a single stretch. The two university and freshman four-oars rowed a half-mile race and the freshmen were given a start of a length. The freshmen came in second. No time was taken.
