UNEXCITING DAY AT RED TOP

Ideal Weather Encouraged Crews to Luxuriate in Light Exercise.--Freshmen Made Good Time.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard Training Quarters, Red Top, Conn., June 4, 1913.--Crew practice here today was uneventful except for a minor change in the Freshman eight. Captain Morgan was moved from two to four, displacing H. Middendorf, and his place at two taken by Talcott from the Freshman four. In this order, the crew rowed over the two mile course for the first time, no attempt being made at fast work. Throughout the first mile, the stroke was maintained at 28, and in the last mile it was raised to 34. Under neutral weather conditions, there being no wind and no tide, the time given out for this last mile was 5 minutes and 15 seconds.

All of the other crews took advantage of the ideal weather, indulging in long easy paddles. Coach Wray accompanied the University eight, and laid emphasis in his coaching on getting a firmer catch and drive, with the result that on its return to the boat-house, the crew showed marked improvement.
