At the call of Captain Herrick, a meeting was held last night of the candidates for the University crew, Among the new candidates who presented themselves are, G. L. Nelson, Sp., W. Wells, '90, W. M. Weed, '92, C. E. Moody, '93, F. L. Kennedy, '92; for coxswain, L. W. Gilbert, '93. The following old 'varsity men still remain in college and will row again this year: J. P. Hutchinson, '90, B. F. Tilton, '90, J. R. Finlay, '91, T. N. Perkins, i91, and Longworth, '91. Goddard, who stroked Ninety-two last year, and F. N. Watriss, D. F. Jones, and J. O. Porter, who rowed in the same freshman boat are also candidates. J. Hartridge, '90, and S. D. Parker, '91, both of whom have had much experience, will row.
The management of the crew purposes to arrange a series of scratch races for the end of next week. There will be a race between crews representing the upper classes and another between five crews made up of freshmen. It is probable that the freshman crews will be drawn by lot. Each crew will then be put in charge of a member of the University crew who will coach his men one day and act as coxswain in the race on the following day. The usual course in front of the boat-house is long enough to allow a sharp and interestrace. The floats will be allowed to remain in place as long as possible.
