Wisconsin's fresh water sailors from the deep west scored the rowing upset of the season as they chalked up a remarkable time of 9:12 4-5 to capture the sprint championship of the Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges Saturday over a 1 3/4 mile course on the Severn.

The Annapolis hosts registered another surprise when they finished second, a length behind, in a nine-way regatta that saw the dope rudely upset. Crimson rowers, who, with Cornell, were pre-race favorites, came in last, while the Big Red crossed the finish line in fifth place.

"It should have been called a 'regretta,'" Coach Tom Bolles said yesterday, "and was an unfortunate part of the painful process of acquiring experience. The Varsity shell was definitely in the race for the first mile, and for the next 1/4 mile it seemed as though they might still be in it. But after that the boys just ran out of gas. The other boats didn't put on much of an extra sprint; we slowed down."

Princeton's Jayvees took the curtain-raising event in the slow time 10:37. With two regulars missing from the 2nd boat, Crimson oarsmen were seventh in a field of eight.

At home, Bert Haines' 150 lb. eight salvaged some of the Crimson's rowing honor by swamping Pennsylvania, Cornell, Princeton, and MIT, who finished in that order, with the Red and Blue trailing by two lengths in 1 5/16 mile Henley course. The second 150 lb. boat also triumphed on the Charles River.

In the Varsity race Columbia came in third ahead of Rutgers, Cornell, Pennsylvania, Princeton, and MIT.
