Newell Boat House Closed As Crew Transfers to Weld
Facing the prospect of a year without the heavy receipts of the football season, the Harvard Athletic Association has closed Newell Boat House, which once housed a score or more of sleek Harvard shells.
The shells will be moved to Weld Boat House where under Bert Haines, Crimson crew mentor, they will still ply the river, holding intramural races and perhaps a few contests with M.I.T., but no races off the Charles.
The single shells and whereles which formerly went out from Weld will still be there, with facilities for fully as much if not more rowing. Including the morning jaunts of the 80 odd Navy men now rowing daily.
