Red Top, Conn., June 11. The Har vard 'varsity had Its first four mile pull over the regatta course this after noon. It was not intended in any sense as a time row, as Coach Wray is not yet ready to send his men over the four miles at a fast clip, and no time was given out. After paddling down stream to the start the crew started rowing a low stroke, and at the navy yard were joined by the freshman eight, who who paddled along side with them, but no attempt to race was made. The two crews showed better, form than they did in the morning work, as they were not bothered by rought water, and the wind was almost dead. Stroke Farley especially pulled a good oar, at the fin ish both crews were in very good shape. The 'varsity order was unchanged, but in the freshman boat McLeod was in at No. 5 in place of Hadden, who had the seat this morning. Wyman, who had the seat regularly, has now developed a sure case of mumps, and to-night Dr. Kinnicutt removed him to the Memorial hospital at New London. On his departure in the launch Wyman was cheered by the freshman crew. While his illnes is slight he will prob ably not be able to row again this year, and. as he is one of the strongest men in the boat his loss will be great ly felt. The 'varsity and freshmen fours had a half mile race in the afternoon, the 'varsity covered a mile and were pick ed- up by the freshmen at the half- mile and managed to eoat the young sters by about three lengths. Hadden was in the boat at 3 in place of Mc Leod who went to the freshmen eight. None of the crews got out on the river until six o'clock. It was after dark' when the 'varsity and freshmen eights housed their shells. LITTLE THE WINNER. Dcfeat Mollenhauer, and Will Choi- lenge Alexander. New York, June 11. By defeating H. H.

Hobart at this point got Into, playing form and by brilliant work pulled out strong at tho finish. The opening matches were all well contested and this was In a large measure accredltable to the splen did cool weather, the fine condition of the courts and the lack of wind. A big gallery was in attendance. In connection with this tournament, this interesting situation has arisen.

Thus pas ses out colors borne by many a turf winner. . Those who ' follow intercollegiate track athletics see for 1908 another re markable set of competitions at the an nual games. From Michigan word comes that that university will again claimed his time. He declared em enter a squad, probably as strong as phatlcally that the recent mixup over the one . sent this year. While Tale and Harvard lose some stars by grad uation, each gets from the freshmen other stars. Penn. will do as well. In the Tale Highbrow league to-day the First Disputes will dispute the championship aspirations and deepen the disappointment of First Disap pointments. The slaughter takes place on Hhe scrub diamond at the field right after school at 4 o'clock. The melee Is to determine which nine is the "It" in the Record series. t Connie Danaher is taking away chances for knocks over his manage ment of the local nine. Sam Kennedy Is a good 'un. Let's have more like Mm and hurry up those new pitcher and that crack-a-jack S. S. that was heralded in the black days of the try out games. WOMBPT AT TENNIS.
