The History of Harvard's Commencement, Explained

The Yale Crew.

"Bob" Cook is expected to make a visit to New Haven next week before going home, and in order that the coaches might have something to tell him about the crew, a time trial over the four-mile course in the harbor was taken in early part of this week. It is early for such a trial, and the time taken does not give much of a pointer on the crew, as they have not tried to develop much speed as yet. However, the trial was satisfactory, as is generally known, although they have tried to keep it a most profound secret.

The idea was mostly to bring out Langford as stroke, and see what he could do. His exhibition was acceptable, beginning at about thirty-four strokes to the minute and increasing at the last mile to about thirty-seven. The men all stood the work well, and in spite of the usual talk about trouble in the Yale crew, they showed themselves to be a bit better than last year's eight. There was no break visible in the time over the whole four miles, except for a few strokes now and then, and the shell was carried along on a fairly even keel. The watermanship was good. Little can be said of the stroke, which is as nearly as one can see it the "Bob" Cook stroke and the exact counterpart of the one set by Gallaudet and Johnson, perhaps a little longer.

Cross rowed very well, and there is little doubt in New Haven but what Mr. Cook will leave the make-up of the crew as he finds it. He has always shown a great deal of confidence in Ives and Hartwell, and has not been apt to make a change unless things are going badly, which is not the case at present. If he does make a change it will merely be one of policy in removing Cross on account of his weight, which may cause some shifting about of the men to alter the trim of the boat, but he has always had perfect confidence in Cross and will undoubtedly rely on his previous knowledge of the man and keep him. The chief effect of his visit will be to put more ginger into the men and wake them up a bit.

As to an international race that they have been looking forward to for some years, Mr. Cook's return may bring some new light. There is considerable doubt that Oxford will come over here, as it is understood that some of her men will be in the Henley regatta, but there is no apparent reason why Yale should not go over there. Their navy is well out of debt, and there are plenty of graduates in New York and elsewhere who would be glad to see a race and willing to defray the expenses. Such a race could hardly take place until the first of August, as the Yale crew would not get through here until nearly the first of July, and could not race immediately again after crossing the sea, and it might be hard to keep the boys in condition. All the men on the eight have expressed their willingness to go over and race anywhere at any time, and they look at present as though they would be able to make a good showing.
