Weakness in the field events and long
runs prevented the University from
being a better contender against the all-
round strength of the Cornell team.
Meredith, of Pennsylvania, performed
the feat of winning both the 440- and
880- yard runs. In the former event, he
barely nosed out W. Willooz, Jr., '17, in
the time of 48 seconds, remarkable speed
on the heavy track. E. A. Teschner, '17,

of the crews.

CanM Regatta, Lake Cayuga, Mag 22.

The University won its first victory
in seven years over Cornell, and also its
first vict(»y on Lake Cayuga since row*
ing relations have been resumed. Har-
vard jumped into the lead at the start,
pulling 88 strokes to the minute, and
was never headed. The Univernty eight
rowed a smooth, powerful stroke, and
crossed the finish line 8^ of a length
ahead, covering the 2-mile course in
10m., 41 2-5s. The Freshman crew had
a good lead at the half-mile mark, but
because of the poor condition of the men
could not stand a fast pace, and Cornell
won by 1 1-2 lengths in 10m., 548.

The orders of the crews were:

won from the Yale 1917 boat in the
Basin by three lengths on May 15. For
the first quarter of a mile the two boats
were even, but the Sophomores led
easily for the balance of the race. In the
single sculls race at the same time, N. P.

sity of Pennsylvania and the Union
Boat Club of Boston. Shortly after-
wards the same Pennsylvania crew de-
feated the Harvard second crew over
the Henley distance, the Princeton sec-
ond crew trailing in third place. N. P.
Darling, '17, finished second in the sin-
gle sculls race.

To encourage rowing in the College
at large, the University held an invita-
tion regatta in the Charles River Basin
on May 29 and 81. The program in-
cluded races between Boston prefMura-
tory schools, the Freshman dormitories*
the Thayer and Eliot boat dubs, and the
Union Boat Club and the University

Carroll cup for single sculls, his nearest
competitor being B. Carpenter, Jr., '16.

The 1918 second eight defeated Mid-
dlesex by 8 lengths on May 17, and
Exeter by a quarter of a length on May
8. In the latter event, the schoolboys
held a small lead for 8-4 of the distance,
but by hard driving at the finish, the
Freshmen won. The orders of the
crews were:

Freshman Race,
The Freshman Race, which was post-
poned from the morning on account of
rough water, was announced to start at
7.10 P.M. from the railroad bridge. This



was soon found to be impossible, how-
ever, by reason of the confusion on the
river due to the departure of the various
steamers. Tlie race was therefore actu-
ally rowed upstream from the Navy
Yard. It was seen by only a very few,
since the observation trains did not re-
turn and darkness was ^proaching.
The race was more closely contested
than the Varsity Race, but even here the
result was never really in doubt It was
so late that the distance was cut down to
a mile and a half.
