The illness of some of the members of the University crew has necessarily retarded progress and interfered seriously with the work of the boat. Either on account of the malarial condition of New Haven or of the harbor alone, two members of the crew, Wickes and Williams, and a substitute, Cross, have been unable to row for some time. The anxiety of the undergraduate body has been acute and was only slightly mitigated, when on Sunday all the men except Wickes left for New London on Colonel Payne's yacht, Eleanor.

Up to the time of the break in the crew's work, the form had been fairly good, and Mr. Cook was turning to the finer points of the stroke. To be sure, there was an extremely annoying tendency to rush the work in almost every part of the stroke and the slides were an especially difficult matter for the coach. The blade work had been steadily improving and the snap and spirit of the members admirable. It is yet to be seen how all this will be affected by the illness of Williams and the longer absence of Wickes who will not get back to work until Wednesday.

The entire university was disappointed in the result of Saturday's game in spite of the plucky exhibition in the eighth inning. There is, however, a general confidence that the other big games will have a very different result from that of the first Princeton game. The team went to pieces on Saturday in a manner which is unaccountable, unless it is to be ascribed to Fearey's failure in the box. Who will pitch in the coming game is not yet determined, but it seems probable that both Captain Greenway and Hall will be put in, and possibly Stickney of the Freshman team. On the whole there is a feeling of hope about the nine, though the University is waiting before making up its mind about the crew.
