University Crew.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In spite of the raw wind and blowing snow yesterday afternoon, the university crew rowed on the river where they have been rowing since last Tuesday. On Monday the ice prevented rowing, but yesterday it had cleared away below the Boylston Street bridge so they could take out the barge. The candidates have now become well narrowed down, and include altogether no more than a dozen men.

Yesterday afternoon was one of the most disagreeable imaginable on the river. About three o'clock Captain Perkins and Shaw '94 went out in the pair-oar, with S. D. Parker '91, captain of the senior class crew, to steer. They rowed up and down in front of the boat house for about a half-hour, and then I. ynam, M. S., went into the paiar-oar with Captain Perkins to coach him and Shaw.

The crew came down to the boat house about four o'clock, and fifteen minutes later went out on the river. As now made up the crew rows as follows:

Weight.

Bow, D. F. Jones '92, 165

2 Lynam, M. S., 167

3 N. Rantoul '92, 169

4 J. C. Powers '92, 164

5 F. B. Winthrop '91, 161

6 D. R. Vail '93, 190

7 G. H. Kelton '93, 192

Stroke, T. N. Perkins '91, 171

In the pair-oar were A. Shaw '94, wt. 190 Ibs., and F. N. Watriss '92, 172 Ibs. C. F. Adams, L. S., steered the barge and coached the crew.

Only the men above named are training for the present. C. K. Cummings '93 is sick and cannot come out again for two weeks according to late report, and the other men are training with their class crews.

The men are rowing yet on fixed seats and are not feathering. The object of this is to secure long body swing with arms straight and a firm finish. The time has greatly improved of late and the men are getting more snap at the catch. It looks now as if those defects which have caused so much criticism on Harvard's rowing will be remedied.

Last Saturday Harry Keyes '87, who coached the crew of last year, was watching the crew and he spoke very encouragingly of it.

The crew is fortunate this season in not being bothered with floating ice which usually comes from the marshes in the early part of the season. This year the big blocks of ice have all melted on the marshes instead of being carried out into the river. The small float is the only one yet in the river and the college put that in only on condition that the Boat Club would be responsible for its safety. Last year it was broken by the floating ice. The big float will probably be put in position in about three weeks; at any rate not until the weather becomes settled.
