Ithaca, N. Y., May 28.--Today the Harvard crew took a long row up the lake three miles and back, at a slow stroke, accompanied by Coach Wray in Coach Courtney's launch. No sprints or racing starts were tried. The Freshman crew took the same kind of work, rowing four miles in all. The four substitutes from the University and Freshman squads made up a four-oar and went out in one of the Cornell shells.
Both the Cornell crews had light work. The University crew especially showed great improvement in form and speed over its work as seen at the American Henley Regatta. The lake was very rough during the practice of the crews, and the weather was extremely hot with repeated showers.
