With the Brooks House crew favored because of its showing in the trial heats Kirkland, Lowell, Brooks and Winthrop race today over the Henley course at 5 o'clock. The winner of today's regatta will meet the winning crew from the Yale colleges on May 18.
Brooks' crew did the course in 7-18 when they beat Lowell in the trials on May 2. Kirkland's eight, although cripled by the loss of two regulars, did the same course in 7-27 to beat Winthrop by two feet. Adams, Dunster, and Eliot were eliminated as a result of these preliminary races, and of the four crews racing today, Brooks rules as the favorite, with Kirkland pressing closely all the way.
