A season of rowing about which many pipe dreams have been built and smashed in quick order was officially launched with very few and very matter of fact details this afternoon, as regular work-outs were started, and regular training was planned for March 8.

This year had been foremost in nearly all American crewmen's minds because of the projected Olympics, but when the war came this reason was gone, only to be revived again with the possibility of an East-West race in lieu of the trials.

The Crimson sweepswingers are far behind the race for spring training, because the West coast crews have been in their shells for a month already. However, Harvard material is strong and plentiful, and beyond the immediate problem of selection from this material, there is the acute problem of selecting a stroke. The same problem was crucial early last season, but it was readily solved by the time the races started.

Temporary boats have been drawn up already, but they will probably be constantly shifted about until they actually go out onto the Charles. The frame works of these boats will probably be as nearly permanent as anything can be at such an early date, but individuals can not be pointed out just yet.

At stroke, Tom Bolles has Jack Wilson in the first boat, and Barr Comstock pacing an all-upperclassman outfit, and Reggie Fitz leading a Sophomore group.
