Harvard Training Quarters, Red Top, New London, Conn., June 16.--The second University four defeated the Yale second four by four lengths over a mile course yesterday afternoon. The time was 5 minutes, 22 seconds, with fair wind and tide. The Harvard crew jumped into the lead, rowing a higher stroke, and was never headed.
At the half-mile flag when three lengths had been opened out between the two boats, Harvard eased down the stroke and rowed steadily, adding but one more length to the lead. P. Allen, Yale '00, acted as referee. The Harvard four rowed in the following order: Stroke, Sargent; 3, Rogers; 2, Nelson; bow, Carver; cox., Boyd.
The work for all the other crews yesterday consisted of light work, mainly racing starts.
