The rules which will govern the races are the same as those of the two past years.

The crews will be ready at the Brookline Bridge promptly at the appointed hour 4 p. m. The stern of each shell will be held from a boat attached to a rope stretched across the river. As soon as the shells are in position one long whistle will be blown as a preparatory signal. Twenty seconds after this signal, three short, sharp whistles will signify, "Are you ready?"

The first starting signal (a gun shot) will be given at any moment after the three whistles.

To recall the shells, if necessary, the referee's tug will stop and the second barrel of the gun will be fired, but there can be no signal after ten strokes have been rowed.

The finish line is the imaginary prolongation of the face of the brick wall on the west side of Otter Street, Boston.

Shells will cross this line between Beacon Street and the judges' boat, which will bear a flag.

Except as above, the race will be governed throughout by the Laws of Boat Racing as adopted by the National Association of Amateur Oarsmen. Should the weather necessitate postponement, notice will be sent to the college boat house as early as possible.


Of the class crews the freshmen have as usual done the most work, having begun at the very beginning of the year. All the other crews have been doing regular work since Christmas. The seniors have very good watermanship and very poor body work. Sometimes they appear quite fast, rowing with good time and smooth movement, but as a general rule their eccentric body work makes them look rough and slow. The sophomores have very easy body-work but fail to carry their stroke through well. They are by far the best looking of the class crews. The freshmen and juniors have the heaviest and strongest men, especially the juniors. The freshmen have improved greatly lately, but were somewhat hampered some weeks ago by the lack of a suitable boat. They are not sure of their boat, and often strike the water with their oars. The juniors have been decided favorites for some time. Though their body-work is not all it should be, nor their watermanship clean, they often row a powerful stroke.
