Harvard Training Quarters, Red Top, New London, Conn., June 6, 1912.--The work of the crews today was materially interferred with by a high wind which blew directly up the course, making the water extremely rough. In the morning only the University and Freshman eights went out. The former crossed the river, but found the water under the opposite bank too rough, and returning, met the Freshman crew, half way across. The two then paddled into the boathouse.
Toward the afternoon the wind shifted to westward and moderated somewhat, so that the men were able to find a half-mile or so or smooth water on the opposite side of the river. The University and Freshman crews were given only one or two racing starts and sent in to the boathouse. The four-oars, however, were matched in two brushes, both of which were won by the University crew. When tried out against the eight in a start, the University four got away a little the faster, rowing splendidly at a high stroke.
T. Storrow was shifted up to the bow seat in the Freshman eight in place of Fuller, who is laid up with a cold.
