Harvard's prospects for rowing a good race at New London next spring look decidedly brighter now than they did a few weeks ago. Then it was announced in the Boston papers that "the university eight consisted of six sophomores." Yesterday, Hudgens, '84, one of the strongest men in the 'Varsity last spring, signified his intention of becoming a candidate for this year's crew. The candidates who are now practising daily in the gymnasium are as follows: Belshaw, Sawyer, Cabot, Hammond (captain), Clark, Hudgens, Chalfant and Curtis. The crew is coached daily by Mr. Bancroft, and it is said on good authority that Harvard's prospects never looked better than now.
