Harvard won tho varsity eight-oared race, the greatest event in the annual regatta, today, by four lengths. This gives all the events to tha Crimson oarsmen. NEW LONDON, June .-Harvard cleared up the Thames this morning with two decisive victories over Yale. The crimson freshmen eight-oared crew beat the youngsters from New Haven by three lengths and the Harvard varsity four bet tered this performance a little later by rowing away from Yale In the last eighth mile of a surprising race and finishing four lengths In the lead. A quartering down-stream breete which rose to eight knots an hour before the sec ond race began cut down the time, and although both the winning crews were strong, both races were alow. The time was: Freshmen eight: Harvard, 11:54; Yale, 12:02. ' ' Varsity four: Harvard, 13.00V4; Yale, 13:18. The Yale freshmen lost because of inabil ity to row in any sort of form. They could neither keep time nor hold their boat on an even keel. Harvard, with supposedly Inferior material, rowed In splendid form. At the finish. Read and Adams both fell in a heap In the botton of Uie Yale boat, but Boon recovered. Superior Weight Telia. Harvard had practically conceded that Yale would win the four-oared race. There fore It was no surprise when the Yale crew Jumped away and soon had a lead of three seconds at the half mile, which j increased to five seconds at tha mile. But Just before the crews came into the last! half mile of the race, the Harvard four, which had been rowing in bad time, be gan to profit by their superior weight. Over this last half mile Harvard not only cut down Yale's lead, but literally Jumped away frui"Yal tilt" at the fmuunat vard nud a lead of seventeen and one-half seconds, which measured in boat lengths, means four good lengths. The Yale four held the form right up to the finish, but Low at Btroke and Thome at bow, did not have the physical strength to put any Jump Into the stroke. Throughout this race, Harvard rowed from two to three strokes more to the minute than Yale. Yale's stroke aver aged from 32 to 33; Harvard's from 38 to 36. Harvard Victory Sensational. Harvard won the varsity fours race in sensational manner. Yale caught the water first and dashed out nearly a length ahead pf the first fifty yards. . Ap proaching the half mllo Yale sprinted and took a lead of a full length, then se?med content with the advantage and dropped back to a long, easy stroke. At the three-quartera Harvard again lapped Yale's shell, but dropped back again, and Yale was half e length ahe.d at the mile. Then came the wonderrul spurt that showed how much the Cambridge men had been holding In reserve. Gradually Har vard raised its stroke and closed the gap. In an eighth of a mllo thoy moved up morn than two lengths and at tnls distance from home began to leave Yale behind at every stroke Harvard finished four lengths ahead in 13:0t)V. Yale's time was 13:18. The record for thia race la 10:12, made by Harvard in 1SW4. The dual victory this morning quickened Harvard's expectation of wiunlnr, the uni versity race this evening.

Both crews caught the water on the sig nal, rowing a fast but clean stroke with little or no splashing until they appeared outside the excursion fleet. Then they en countered the. rough water kicked up by the quartering northwest breese and the spray began to fly. At the half mile the Harvard she.ll, row ing 28, led a halt leugth, but Yale raised its stroke to 30 and drew up oven and for the next mile it was nip and tuck.
