For the first time this year the two first University crews were given a short workout on the Charles last Saturday afternoon. What little ice remains is rapidly melting, and a long stretch up the river is clear enough to give the coxswains little trouble. The floats at Newell have been launched; the Pup II is in the water; and today the shells and the Pup I will be brought back from Lynn. From now until their trip to Carnegie Lake for the Princeton race in April the crews will row on the Charles.
During the week the lower six University crews under Coach Brown will be turned into class crews which will practice in preparation for the interclass race.
