The first rowing event of the year will take place a week from this Saturday, April 20, when Manhattan College will race her Varsity crew against the Crimson Jayvees. The Manhattan Jayvees will take on Coach Charlie Whiteside's third crew. All the races will be rowed in Harvard shells and over the new course in the Basin.
The first Crimson shell will not compete against the New Yorkers even in this race, an informal and off-the-schedule contest, but will be pitted against Bert's prize yearlings. The Freshman seconds will have opportunity to bet shirts with the Manhattan first '38 shell.
