The Crimson rowing season opens officially today with four lightweight races on the Charles River, starting at 4:30 p.m. M.I.T., Dartmouth, Tabor Academy and Harvard crews will compete.
Derrick Wilde's strong 150-pound Crimson varsity rates an excellent chance to defeat M.I.T. in a two-boat race at 6 p.m. The lightweight oarsmen covered the Henley distance of one mile and five-sixteenths in six minutes and 48 seconds.
The Crimson junior varsity will also race M.I.T. only, at 5:30 p.m. Its chances against Tech are less sure than are the varsity's. The outcome will depend on Tech's depth in the 150-pound ranks. The freshman lightweights will race M.I.T. and Tabor Academy at 5 p.m. and the second '59 boats will meet Tech and Dartmouth at 4:30 p.m.
