LOW STROKE AND LONG ROW
CREWS WORK FOR SMOOTHNESS.--IN MORNING COMBAT ROUGH WATER.
Harvard Training Quarters, Red Top, Conn., June 10, 1914. Rough water in the morning handicapped the oarsmen, but in spite of the weather conditions all the crews took short rows. Marked improvement in watermanship was shown especially by the Freshmen. In the afternoon, conditions were better and the University crew followed by the Freshman paddled three miles down-stream and back at a low stroke, special attention being paid to working well together and no attempt being made at speed. Late in the afternoon, Mr. Herrick took the second crew down to the Navy Yard. On the return trip, a mile was rowed at a high stroke to accustom the men to fast pace, but no attempt at time was made.
