MacDowell has entered for the Henley, and says that he will refuse to pay any attention to the challenge. There was some suggestion affecting Corbet's status as an amateur and Corbet replied: "I am not conced ing that MacDowell is an amateur. that is his only reason, I feel easier, for I stand ready to contest that point as well as his ability as an oarsman."
