ROWING REGATTA TO END SEASON
Schedule of Events to be Held on Charles River Next Week.
The fall rowing season will end next week with a big regatta in which races will be held between the University crews, the Gore, Smith and Standish crews for the Slocum Trophy, and the Eliot and Thayer crews for the Filley Cup.
The first two University eights will race this afternoon over a mile course in the Basin, and the stroke will be kept around 28, in order that the crews may master a slow hard stroke.
The regatta promises to be a big feature; present indications pointing to closely contested races throughout the three days that it will last. The program of scheduled races follows: Tuesday, October '27: 3-4 mile (up-stream stretch), 4.15 o'clock -- fifth Eliot and Thayer crews. 4.30 o'clock--third Gore, Smith and Standish. Wednesday, October 28: 1-mile (stretch in the Basin); 4 o'clock--second Gore, Smith, and Standish crews; 4.20 o'clock--third and fourth Eliot and Thayer crews. Thursday, October 29: 3.45 o'clock--first and second Eliot and Thayer crews, (1 7-8 miles in Basin) 4 o'clock -- first Gore, Smith and Standish crews (1 mile in Basin) 4.20 o'clock University A and B crews (1 7-8 miles in Basin). The races on Thursday will start at the Cottage Farm Bridge and end at either the Harvard Bridge or at the Union Boat Club.
