The annual metropolitan regatta will be held on the Charles River course this afternoon beginning at 2.30 o'clock. In seven of the eight events--which will be contested Harvard men, rowing from the Weld or the Newell clubs will compete. The entries and the order in which the races will be pulled off are: 1--novice singles: H. G. Hart, Jr., and C. W. Locke, Weld; 2 -- intermediate fours: Weld and Union B. C.; 3 -- junior singles: J. Burroughs, Weld; 4 -- four oar working boats (no Harvard entries); 5--junior eights: Weld, Newell, and interscholastic second crews; 6--intermediate eights: Weld, Newell, and Shawmut clubs; 7--senior singles: F.

The single scullers will meet all comers in their classes. The races will follow each other as rapidly as possible, and will all be one mile and a half in length.
