The average weight is 172 pounds, which is very heavy. Caldwell, who stroked the crews of '86 and '87, has clung to his determination not to row this year, in spite of all reports to the contrary. Most of the coaching is being done by Cowles and Rogers, captains of the '86 and '87 crews. Yale men say their crew is not rowing as well as usual at this time of the year, but predict better work on the arrival of the new shell which is expected in a few days, They are very confident of winning at New London.
