Last week the members of the first two University boats voted for the usual University four-oared race at New London as against the race between second eight-oared crews proposed by the Yale authorities; as the Harvard choice has behind it the force of precedent it will undoubtedly stand. For the present season, particularly at this late date, the decision is certainly a sound one, but for another year the matter deserves careful consideration. While the four-oared event is a little more spectacular, because more extraordinary, and gives opportunity for lighter men to win their "H's," a second eight-oared crew affords better training for a University four-mile race. The great advantage of the four-oared race and the one that should make it stand is its tendency away from specialization.
FOUR OAR OR SECOND EIGHT.
