The Ninety-seven crew rowed in its usual order yesterday afternoon, except that Phelps rowed at No. 5, while Capt. Kernan coached. Last year's shell has been rigged, and the men will begin work in it preparatory to breaking in the new boat which Davy has nearly finished.
Collectors are at work canvassing the class for funds, as a considerable sum must be raised this year to meet the expenses of the crew and pay off last year's deficit. Beside the regular eight, Gleason and Phelps have been taken to the training table as substitutes. The makeup yesterday was as follows: Watson, stroke; Wrightington, 7; White, 6; Phelps, 5; Dunlop, 4; Chapman, 3; Cornwell, 2; Rantoul, bow.
