The new crew shell which is to come from England about the first of May and the Oxford boat which swamped in the Cambridge race Saturday are similar in line.
R. K. Kane '23, who captained the 1923 University crew and rowed last year on the Oxford crew, said of the new boat, "There is no reason to fear for the new Harvard shell in rough water. It is narrow, but not so narrow as the one which found such difficult going on the Thames Saturday. It is modeled, rather, after the 1923 Oxford boat which weathered some very bad blows. I don't believe that the lines of the shell were completely responsible for the Oxford swamping. Watermanship and the outside the figured considerably."
