Conchca Expect Hard CiintentK.
The coaches of the vnrious crews have
expressed themselves about the races. None
is confident of victory, but 11 say that
they expect contests that will require the
winners to exert themselves to the utmost.
Here Is what they have written on the out
look: "I have a good strong; crew, and I am
pleased with th" men's condition. I won't
say where I think Wisconsin will finish
I am satisfied we will do well "Andrew
Odea, Coach of Wisconsin.
"Tne problem with us Is one of endurance.
Our crew Is as fast as last year's with two
or three miles, the question pi what they
can do In the last heart-breaking mile. The
crew that beats us will I think, have to
better last j ear's record." Edward Hanlan,
Ccorh of Columbia
"My crew has been greatly overrated. It
is a good average Cornell eight, but noth
ing phenomenal. We are not wor'ylng, b it
we expect the hardest kind of a race. Co
lumbia I look upon as our most dangerous
opponent, and In fact I think the race Il'g
between Cornell and Columbia." Charles
Courtney. Coach of Cornell.
"Sly crew 13 an untried proposition for
four miles. If tho race were two miles we
should not have much hesitancy In pre
dicting the outcome, but We have hopes for
the longer distance. The cerw that beats
us will know It has been rowing Pat
rick Dcmpsy. Coach of Georgetown.
"People tell mo my "varsity shows we
will havo to 'stand for if anq do the best
we can. We havohopes ot our freshmen "
E. R. Sweetland, Coach or Sv racuse.
"My crew Is well able to stand a hard
four-milo race. The eleventh-hour change
In the 'varsity may have some effect, but
not enough. I think, to effect Its chances.
We are not over confident, but the crew
that beats us will have to row mightily."
Ellis Ward. Coach for Pennsylvania.
