The American Henley regatta of this year will take place at Philadelphia on May 29. This date was chosen at a meeting of the board of stewards of the American Rowing Association at the New York Harvard Club, at which were present representatives of Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Pennsylvania, Cornell, Columbia and Annapolis.
A plan to have the Child's cup race a part of the regatta is dependent on whether examinations can be so arranged at Columbia that she can send a crew down. If not, the Childs cup will be competed for at some other time as usual, and the Stewards' cup will be the first University race on the Henley program.
On the motion of Eliot Farley '07, it was arranged to have the varsity race open in the future to all colleges, the idea being to obtain as many colleges as possible to enter in the 1921 regatta, when it is hoped the sport will be thoroughly re-established. In addition to the usual Henley program there will be a race for Junior college eights to compete for the New England Challenge cup; an interscholastic eight and a special 150-pound Freshman's eight-oared event, each member of the crew to weigh in the morning of the regatta. No man is to exceed 155 pounds and the crew average is limited to 150 pounds.
