Decision on Acceptance of Western Regatta Unknown

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Washington University yesterday tendered the Crimson an invitation to participate in a 2000 meter regatta on Lake Washington June 22. Though Athletic Director William J. Bingham '16 declined to announce the decision reached last night in a meeting of the Committee on the Regulation of Athletic Sports, the bid was probably accepted.

Besides the Crimson, Columbia, Cornell, MIT, Navy, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Wisconsin, and Yale, all of whom participated in last week's Annapolis race, and in addition California and the University of British Columbia, have been asked to attend.

Crimson acceptance will probably entail a twice-a-week practice schedule from the termination of exams until the regatta. Sponsors of the race, the International Labor Organization, whose Maritime Conference will be held concurrently and local civic groups, are expected to pay expenses.

Competing eastern eights will fly to the coast. Proceedings will be spaced over a one week period, providing Crimson Varsity boatmen with an opportunity to view the scenic Far West.

Although the 2000 meter course is a short wind sprint compared to the annual four mile pre-war Poughkeepsie Regatta, it has been heralded as the big event of the crew season inasmuch as the Hudson River outing will not be held this year.

100,000 Spectators

Attendance at the Lake Washington event may reach 100,000. Since legal difficulties prohibit an admission fee, spectators will be able to view the regatta free of charge from the more-than-a-mile-long floating concrete pontoon bridge.

Concentrating on the more immediate problem of getting his crew in shape for Saturday's race with MIT, Coach Tom Bolles had his charges working on time trials yesterday afternoon. "The results were not wholly satisfactory," he reported.

Tired

"The boys are tried," Bolles said. "But they were at least faster today than the day before. And we'll be as ready as is humanly possible for the meeting with

Stroke Torby Ross, who was kept by illness from the Severn regatta, stepped back into his pace-setting number eight slot yesterday. Varsity bowman Bill Cochran reported in yesterday and will probably resume his chores tomorrow.

Two Jayvee oarsmen, Lane Barton and Jim Otis, have also returned from Stillman to take up their positions in the second shell.
