Criticism of University Crew.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The candidates for the university crew are gradually improving in their work on the weights and the men are evidently trying to do their best. As a whole the men are not very strong or skilful, and frequently the strongest men are rowing in the poorest form. While there are several men who look as though they would row in very fair form the lack of strength and experience is very apparent. The improvement in the past couple of weeks, however, has been great, and if the crew were strengthened by some of the old men it would make a much better showing. The candidates, with their weights and a few of the personal faults, are as follows:

Port crew.- Bow, Fitzhugh, '91, 180 pounds. New man; stiff in his movements, and does not get a good seat, can not sit up well, does not hold his head firmly and cannot keep his back straight. Pulls a good deal with his arms and does not recover well.

2. Tallant, '91. New man; stiff and does not control his body well. Drops his oar into his lap and slurs over the finish; is inclined to drop his head at the full reach; does not control his slide well ont he recover.

3. Pulsifer, '90, 171 pounds. Goes back too far and does not get a good body reach; stiff in his movements and does not get away from his stretcher well.

4. Nelson, '93, 164 pounds. New man. Rows very well for the time he has been at it. No one particular fault but a general want of freedom in his action, and stiffness in his arms and shoulders; controls his slide fairly well but is slow and stiff.

5. Blanchard, '91, 173 pounds. New man. Not yet free with his back and cannot keep it straight; is stiff; does not swing forward freely and cannot control his slide well.

6. Lathrop, '90, 164 pounds. Rows in very fair form but has not a good control of his body; weak at finish and does not use his slide carefully.

7. Parker, '91, 150 pounds. Stiff in all his movements, uses his slide pretty well but does not get his body forward quickly enough Goes back too far; does not get a good reach.

Stroke, Longworth '91, 167 pounds. Rows short a stroke, cuts off the finish. Is jerky in his motions and does nof recover smoothly.

Starboard crew, bow, Keyes, L. S., 175 pounds. Stiff in his motions, apt to go back too far; rows smoothly and with life.

2, Powers, '92. 159 pounds. Rows in good form but a short stroke. Loses his body swing when he slides and does not keep his shoulders down.

3. Perkins, '91, 168 pounds. Rows better, but still stiff. Inclined to drop the head at the full reach and to hold the shoulders too high. Moves smoothly and finishes well; stiff in the recover.

4. Hartridge, '90, 154 pounds. Rows smoothly but a rather short stroke. Holds himself stiffly and is inclined to go back too far. Recovers well and rows smoothly.

Upham, '90, 190 pounds. New man but doing very well. Does not use back quite enough and rows too much with his arms. Goes back too far at finish and meets his oar.

6. Watriss, '92, 164 pounds. Inclined to carry his shoulders high and to use his slide too soon on the recover. Does not always sit up well and is unsteady in his stroke. Apt to drop his head at full reach.

7. Jones, '92, 163 pounds. Rowing well but a little stiffly. Does not bend freely and a little awkward in the use of his slide. Recovers well but rows a little short.

Stroke. Goddard, '92, 180 pounds. Rows very smoothly and easily but lacks firmness and form. Apt to carry his head low at full reach and to hunch up his shoulders. Hangs a little. Unsteady at the finish, does not bring himself up sharply and definitely. Drops his hands into his lap but shoots them out well and sharply. Uses his slide well but inclined to slide too far.
