The 1900 crew won the class races yesterday afternoon for the third consecutive time. The Juniors were second, one length behind the Seniors, followed at one third of a length by the Law School. The Sophomore Weld, a length behind the Law School, was a length ahead of the Sophomore Newell. Time, eleven minutes. Captain F. B. Allen of the Yale crew, and Richard Schweppe, manager, watched the race from the John Harvard.

On the start, the Seniors went ahead, with the Law School a close second, the Juniors and the Newell Sophomores even, and the Sophomore Weld, rowing the lowest stroke, last. Half-way to Harvard bridge the order remained the same; the Seniors were gradually increasing their lead over the Law School, and the Sophomore Weld, which had fallen a length behind the Sophomore Newell, was beginning to spurt. At the bridge, the Sophomore crews had drawn up nearly even, and from there to a point within twenty strokes of the finish, they rowed side by side, neither getting a lead of more than three feet at any time. The two were rowing stroke for stroke when number three in the Newell boat caught a crab, and almost before he recovered his oar the Weld crew had crossed the line. Meantime the Juniors had improved their position and half-way to the finish succeeded in passing the Law School. After this, the Juniors drew up slightly on the Seniors, but the order of the crews remained unchanged.
