Mr. Keyes has been away for over a week and captain Herrick has been coaching. The crew will go on the river in a few days and to a training table early in April. The launch will be got out about the first of April. For the past week the rowing has been done in the gymnasium. The drill has been entirely on the elementary principles of using the bodies and slides. From this time on there will be more attention paid to the finer points of body-work and watermanship. Since the speed of a crew depends on its mastery of details, the progress of it can best be judged by the speed and thoroughness with which every man acquires these fine points. Good time is a difficult thing absolutely necessary to a fast crew; in the present crew the time has been poor for the last week. Some men go back too far-a dangerous fault hard to get over.
