FIRST CREW VICTORIOUS

In Race With Second and Third Boats Over Mile and Seven-Eighths Course in Basin Yesterday.

The three University crews held a race from scratch over the mile and seven-eighths course in the Basin yesterday afternoon, which was won by the first crew. At the start the second crew took the lead, and gave the first a hard race, until Harvard Bridge was reached but from that point on dropped steadily behind, finishing off the Union Boat Club four lengths in the rear. The third crew was unable to keep up and finished several lengths behind the other boats.
