"That's what happens when you get a man in the boat!" exclaimed a passing coach as Coach Stevens, substituting in Crew Y yesterday caught a crab and broke his oar.
This accident occurred when Coach Stevens and Captain Kelley were rowing on Crew Y, taking the places of two regulars, whose absence had been discovered as the crew was about to leave the float.
Everything was going very nicely when the boat took a sudden lurch to Coach Stevens' side and the sharp sound of his broken oar was heard.
Coach Stevens gave up his seat and the rest of the crew rowed serenely back to the float.
