ONE BUMP SCORED IN RACES

Crews Handicapped by Unfavorable Weather Conditions.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Only one bump was made yesterday in the first day of the inter-dormitory bumping races for the Filley Cup. This occurred in the second division, Fairfax bumping Holyoke street just past the second bend. A cold drizzle and head wind made it hard for the crews to row their best.

At about 3.15 o'clock three crews of the first division took their starting positions as follows: 1, Randolph; 2, Russell; 3, Claverly. Ridgely did not appear on the river at all, and Mt. Auburn street appeared late with only seven men. At the start Russell and Claverly immediately began to pick up on Randolph, which was rowing a slow stroke, and, keeping the same positions relative to each other, they continued to gain until the Stillman Infirmary was reached. Rounding the bend at that point poor steering caused Russell to drop back, and it looked for a time as if Claverly would score a bump, but half way down the straightaway Harrower hit up his stroke, and the crews finished about as they had started.

The second division started shortly after 3.45 o'clock in the following order: 1, Hampden-Dunster; 2, Weld; 3, Jay; 4, Holyoke street; 5, Fairfax. Almost at the start this race split up into two sections, the first section a procession of three crews with Hampden-Dunster continually gaining on the other two, and the second section a race in which Fairfax bumped Holyoke street just after rounding the last bend. The second section were far behind the first when the bumping took place.

The spirit shown by some of the men yesterday was very discouraging, not only to the management but also to members of the crews. The chances of the Mt. Auburn street and Ridgely crews were much injured through the failure of some of their members to show up.

Schedule for Today.

All men must report at their respective boathouses, dressed to row, today at 2.30 o'clock. The races will start at 3 and 3.30 o'clock. The crews will take their positions in the following order:

First division: 1, Randolph; 2, Mt. Auburn street; 3, Ridgely; 4, Russell; 5, Claverly.

Second division: 1, Hampden-Dunster; 2, Weld; 3, Jay; 4, Fairfax; 5, Holyoke street.
