The Yale Freshman Crew.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Yale freshman crew now at New London has not so far this year made a very brilliant record. In the class races it beat the juniors and gave even the sophomore crew, which was a good one, a close race; but it is hardly up to the standard of freshman crews from Yale.

The crew is fairly heavy, and the men are rowing fairly well together. It is hardly probable that they will establish quite the record of last year's eight, which was phenomenal, beating the 'varsity quite handily several times, at two miles. They row nearly the same stroke as the 'varsity, altered a little to suit a two-mile course, which is more or less of a sprint at best. The stroke is shorter and there is not quite the body reach to it that the other crew has. However, it is a smooth stroke, and so far has not been carried up beyond thirty-five to the minute. After the fashion of all Yale crews, the blade work and watermanship are strong points.

As a usual thing, the Freshman crews have not had much attention paid them, and have had to work hard to get a coach; but this year they have been coached a good deal by members of the 'varsity and the regular corps of 'varsity coaches, and they have had the use of the launch. They have a Waters shell just like that of the 'varsity, only lighter as the latter was especially built for a heavy crew. They will be coached at New London by either Hartwell, Ives, or some other of the 'varsity coaches.

The freshman crew this year contains several men who will be heard from later. In the first and foremost place is Cadwallader, who is rowing at No. 6. He rowed on the 'varsity as substitute for some time, and is a promising oar, with size, strength and weight enough to make one of the crew as soon as there is room. Another good man is D. F. Rogers, the stroke. Hitchcock, No. 3, Marsh, the captain, and Mills at No. 7, are also men that would not be passed over as 'varsity men another year.
