ROUGH WATER PREVENTS CREW RACES WITH TECH

HOVEY IS STILL AT NUMBER FOUR IN UNIVERSITY BOAT

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Rough water yesterday afternoon in the Basin caused the postponement of the Tech-Harvard Freshman races scheduled for 5 and 5.30 o'clock. It was announced then that, weather conditions permitting, the M. I. T. and Harvard lightweight and Second Freshman oarsmen would meet at the same hours this afternoon.

The weather did not, however, prevent the Crimson crews from taking their daily practice row, although choppy water made rowing uncomfortable, and a chilly breeze which, arose late in the afternoon helped to stir up the Charles still more.

When the heavyweights went out at 5.30 o'clock for their practice row C. F. Hovey '32 was at number four, a place he is expected to hold for the remainder of the week, since latest reports indicate that J. W. Hallowell '31 will be unable to row. The boat, despite the fact that Hovey has been in the eight but three days, seems to move smoothly, and it is not felt that the loss of Hallowell will injure the Crimson's chances in Saturday's race.

The Harvard heavies are undergoing their final preparation for Saturday's regatta, in which they will face Tech, Penn and Navy. Navy is sending only its first boat to Cambridge, an eight, regarded as one of the most powerful in the East, and probably Saturday's favorite. The Tech Jayvees, a heavy and strong-oared crew, can be counted on to give both Harvard and Penn a fight for first place in their event, while the Crimson Freshmen may be depended upon to give their two opponents a battle worth seeing.
