YALE TO ASSEMBLE NEW FRESHMAN BOAT

University Paddles With Two-Minute Spurts--Combination Crew Changed Once More

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Red Top. Conn June 17, 1926.

It is common knowledge here that the Yale rowing authorities are doing their utmost to fill their 1929 eight and bring about a race with the Harvard Freshman crew. While no official announcement has been made on the, subject, there seems ample cause to refute the rumors that the Freshman boat will take part in either the Poughkeepsie regatta or the Junior university race with Yale. There is considerable feeling here against each of these projects, and both here and at Gales Ferry, holding the Freshman race just as usual appears to be the most satisfactory solution.

After yesterday's time trials for the university, second university, and Freshman crews, today was an easy day on the river for all except the combination crew.

In the morning, the University, the seconds, and the Freshman rowed together down to the submarine base, taking it easy all the way, down and back. The stroke was kept low. In the afternoon, the University and Freshman crews took a slow three-and-a-half mile spin downstream. On the way back, both eights were occasionally given hard two-minute stretches by Coach Haines, but nothing in the nature of a time trial occurred. Before the week is out, however, there is apt to be another race against time if Coach Haines original plan for the week is to be carried out.

The Junior University boat paddled two miles downstream. On the return, Coach Brown called for speed, and the entire distance was rowed at a beat of 32 or slightly better. While Coach Brown is pleased with the finish and coordination of his oarsmen he is not yet satisfied with their power. He accordingly intends to concentrate on drawing them out to their fullest strength. Another time trial this week for the Seconds is well within the range of possibilities.

One further and, it is believed, final upset occurred in the combination crew today, when J. DeW. Bubbard '29 moved forward to number seven, and D. S. Greer '29 filled the vacant number two seat. This is probably the last change which will be made, according to Coach Brown's expectation. The boating is now as follows: stroke, A. O. Pendar '27; 7, J. DeW. Hubbard '29; 6. R. S. Riley '27; 5, P. B. Huntington '26; 4, T. D. Howe Jr. '26; 3, K. D. Robinson '29; 2, D. S. Greer '29; bow, George Bancroft '27; cox., A. M. Pappenheimer '29.

The waiters crew made its initial appearance today. It paddled downstream about two miles, keeping the stroke very low in an effort to attain coordination and a universal grasp of the principles of rowing. The navy stroke is the one employed, with a long lay-back.
