CHANGE IN CREW SHELLS

UNIVERSITY AND FRESHMAN EIGHTS EXCHANGE BOATS WITH ADVANTAGE.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard Training Quarters, Red Top, Conn., June 13, 1913.--When the University eight took the water this morning a change was made in the shell used. The boat built by Sims of Putney was substituted for that built by Ward in which the crew has been rowing since early this spring. Today the Freshmen used the Ward boat. This change in boats makes them more suitable to the weights of the two crews. The Ward boat formerly used by the University eight, which has a light bow, was observed to ride too far out of the water forward between strokes, and it was thought that it would be better adapted to the Freshman crew, which has a heavy bow four. Both eights seemed pleased with the results of the exchange.

In the morning a half-mile race was held between the University and Freshman four oars, the former winning by a few feet. This afternoon the crews took easy paddles downstream. There will be a time trial tomorrow, if conditions permit.
