In connection with the recent accounts of the Yale crew in the Boston Herald, the following from a New Haven correspondent of the New York Times may be of interest: "Their new shell has been built by Keast, and fully conforms to Yale's new scheme of making quick strokes to win. It is of cedar, and 72 feet in length. . . . . It is believed that under the new plan the whole race cannot be rowed in good form. It will be suicide to attempt a four-mile pull with a bunched or crooked back or an uneven slide. Here, it is to be feared, will be discovered the weakness of the Yale crew. The crew do not observe the excellent rule made by Captain Cook, that the strength of the stroke should be expended at the moment the blade catches the water, and when the oar becomes at right angles to the boat the effort should be lessened, so that the stroke could be finished without jerk or splash, allowing opportunity to return quickly for the second stroke.
THE YALE CREW.
