Saturday afternoon the Yale university and freshman eights rowed a three-mile race downstream from Gale's Ferry. The university crew kept its stroke at 34, and, though the freshmen spurted to 38 at intervals, won by several lengths. No time was given out. There were no changes in the orders of the crews. Coach Kennedy is continuing to give his men the benefit of long rows, finding that thus he can detect the weak points in the crews. There will be little morning practice until examinations are over tomorrow.
