The Oxford and Cambridge Race.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

From the many candidates in training for the Oxford crew two eights have at last been selected, and nothing remains but to choose from them the eight men who shall represent Oxford in the Oxford-Cambridge race. Great doubt is felt at Oxford as regards the strength of the crew. The material is inferior to that of former years, and the average weight of the men is but 160 lbs. Only three members of last year's crew are rowing, but the fact that their weight is at present the same as at the time of last year's race shows that they are in severe training.

There is a feeling at Oxford that cricket and foot-ball tend to weaken the crew by drawing away men who would other wise try for a place in the shell. The average weight of the Cambridge trial eights is but 158 lbs., but the material is superior to that which formed last year's victorious eight. Cambridge also has three old men in training, and there is a feeling among the wearers of the light blue that Cambridge will, as last year, row a winning race.
