The candidates for the Yale 'varsity crew are now hard at work under the direction of Captain Allen, and Rogers, '90 S., both of whom rowed in last year's boat. Brewster, '91, who will row, is a well-known oarsman and will be one of the strongest men in the boat. Hartwell and Gill refuse to row this year, and although they are being urged on all sides to change their minds, there is no prospect of their doing so. By their refusal only three old men will be left in the boat, and Captain Allen has the task of selecting an entirely new crew. Harrison, '90, Simms, '90, and Swayne, '92, are candidates for bow oar. Newell, '90, who was a substitute on the last year's crew, is a candidate for a seat this year. Isham, '91, another good man, has rowed with his class crew since entering college.
There are now forty candidates for the freshman crew. Derby Rogers, '93 has been appointed temporary captain. A change in the tank makes practice much more satisfactory than ever before.
