Losing by only a three and a half second margin, the Winthrop House crew was outrowed by the Yale Junior "A" crew in the Basin on Saturday afternoon. The Puritan boat, champion of the Harvard House crews, unexpectedly opened up at the start and led for the first half mile. But the Elis drew up at the mile mark and surged ahead to the finish line, winning by an even length over the mile and three-quarters distance.
The Winthrop House seatings were: stroke, R. D. Wells '33; 7, H. B. Garrigues '34; 6, J. W. Carman '34; 5, A. C. England '33; 4, J. B. Walker '33; 3, E. C. Carman '35; 2, R. F. Bampton '35; bow, E. W. Fox '35; cox, E. D. Boynton '35. Time--Yale: 10 m. 30 s.; Harvard: 10 m., 26 1-2 s.
