Editors Daily Crimson:

The freshman class will be surprised to learn how its crew is getting along. Every boating man knows that their material is good and judging from their performance last fall many have predicted great things of them in the spring, But at present their rowing is ridiculous, not to say disgraceful. They are vastly slower now than they were last fall! If, after six months training they are slower than they were when they began, how slow will they be after nine months? What are we to think of the coaching they have received?

Last Friday when the 'varsity crew rowed two or three times beside the freshman, they went by so last that it was hard to believe that the latter moved at all. An ordinary freshman crew ought to keep up with the 'varsity for half a mile without any trouble when both are going easily. Judging from this, '92 is some eight lengths to the half-mile slower than the average freshman crew.

I do not think it would hurt the freshmen to receive a little advice from the captain and members of the University eight, who will not be slow to inform them that unless they abandon the stroke under which they have attained such snail-like velocity, and take a tremendous "brace" all round they are destined to a terrible defeat in every race.

J. R. FINLAY, '91.
