CREW MEN SETTLE INTO GRIND OF EARLY SEASON

JAYVEES STILL BEING SHIFTED REPEATEDLY

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

With three weeks and a day of outdoor rowing behind them the Varsity crew has settled down into the long, early-season grind. The first race is against Princeton and M.I.T. on May 2. Whiteside had not made any changes in the stern two oars nor in the bow pair but the waist four seems to be only moderately satisfactory if the minor but repeated changes he has made here are indicative of relatively greater weakness.

The boat as it has rowed since vacation is: stroke, Chace; 7, Captain Ray Clark; 6, John Clark; 5, Eliel; 4, Erickson; 3, Wolcott; 2, Beane; bow, Austin; and cox, Bennett.

During the week Charlie Whiteside has been trying out various experiments in the Jayvees, shifting men about in the second boat and also bringing men up from the third. This process will go on, he says, for two or three days.

Charlie has also taken over the coaching of the first Freshman eight. Bert Haines is directing the yearling Fifties and the second and third heavyweights, but does not now go up and down the river with the number one shell. Bert has charge of all the rest of the first-year crews, but it is probable that the first boat will be under Whiteside for the rest of the season.

The Varsity Fifties are coming along slowly with a decent-enough showing for this time of the season in spite of two Yale veterans out, Piper and Adams. Piper has not rowed since before vacation and with these two men soon to return the Varsity Fifty boat should begin to develop rapidly.
