A temporary rearrangement of Crew C of the University squad was made by the coaches last night to fill in the places of two men who are now sick and to fit in another who has joined the squad after being out for some time on account of sickness. Robert Winthrop '26 will be back in his old seat number 6 today taking the place of B. F. Rice-Bassett '25 who is at present sick.
The other unavailable member of Crew C is H. M. Bohlen '25 whose place is being filled by F. P. Weymer '26 who was brought up from the class crews for that purpose.
Samuel Reber '25 and J. deW. Blosser '26, who were at 4 and 6 in Crew B, have been shifted to their respective class crews until after the class crew races next week. This move was made by Coach Brown in an attempt to make the class crews as evenly matched as possible for the races. J. J. Corn '26 and T. J. Smith '25 have been placed in the two vacancies made by shifting Reber and Blosser to the class crews.
Coach Stevens said last night after the practice that he intends to make several changes in the lineups of the three University crews after the class crews race. This means that some members of the present class crews will replace University squad berth-holders.
In spite of the rain and with a stiff wind blowing that made it hard to keep to the course, the preliminaries of the Fall Sculling Regatta were run off yesterday on the Charles. From 2 until 4.15 o'clock 11 events were run over the half mile course extending upstream from the bend in the river just above the Stillman Infirmary. Most of these were heats and semi-finals with the finals coming this afternoon.
