YALE CREW KEEPS TO TANK DESPITE OPEN WATER ON RIVER
New Haven, Conn, January 24--Although the 1929 Yale oarsmen are taking advantage of the open water and row on the Housatonic, the University crew will make no attempt to follow them, as reported recently, but will keep up work in the tanks in the University Gymnasium until a permanent break in the ice comes, it was announced here today.
The order of the Yale boat will not be settled until Coach Leader is able to get the crews into barges on the river two or three weeks before transferring headquarters to the regular boathouses on the Housatonic.
The winter training for Freshman oarsmen is an innovation started by Coach George Murphy, and has enabled the eights to get out on the river every day last week, although they were driven to shelter by a cold rainstorm on one occasion. They plan to continue, their daily outdoor workouts until ice prevents.
