Class Races.


This afternoon at half past six the class race will be started from the Union boat house. The race promises to be exceedingly interesting, in spite of the fact that the crews have been much interrupted in the practice by the illness of many men.

A week ago the junior crew were generally considered the best on the river, but since that time they have not improved greatly. The '97 crew, on the other hand, have been steadily improving their time and leg drive, which appears very effective. It is likewise generally known that the time of the '97 crew over the course is somewhat faster than that of the '96 crew made under about the same conditions. The sophomores expect their new boat, which was rented from the Riverside Rowing Club especially for these class races, to be a great surprise in the way of speed. Since last Wednesday they have kept their boat at the Boston Athletic Club boat house. Not enough has been seen of them to tell exactly how they compare with the junior crew, but rumor credits them with unusual speed for a class crew. It is, therefore, safe to say that the struggle between the juniors and sophomores will be exciting, with the chances a little in favor of the sophomores.

It is not thought that the chances of the senior crew against the sophomores and juniors are very good. But here again not much is known about the senior crew for they have not been seen on the river much during the last week. The following will be the make-up of the three crews today:
