NEW LONDON, June 30. 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
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.
Freakuieu Race Kxvltns;.
Harvard's weight and stamnla iold in the
freshman race. Until the last quarter the
contest promised one of the most exciting
spectacles ever seen on the Thames. First
the Blue oar blades would flash a few
feet in front, then the Crimson.
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.
With only a half mile left to go the
crews were practically on ever, terms.

Six Thoaaand Items and Ratings Are

Fifty-Eight Changes
WASHINGTON, June 30, Announcement
was made by the Interstate Commerce com
mission today that It would not suspend
official classification number 86, involving
over 6,000 items, which waa filed to be
come effective July 1. This declination to
act is regarded as a victory for tne rail
For nearly a month the commission haa
been overwhelmed with protests against
the proposed new classification of frelgnt,
many shippers seeming to entertain the
idea that the re-arrangement would re
sult In largely increased rates
The subject was considered very care
fully by the commission. In the 6,0V) items
and ratings involved thers are only fifty
eight changes, of which twenty-eight ore
reductions and thirty advances, the latter
Including twelve Increases in carload,
weights. In an official statement issued
today the commission says:
"The principal increases are the carload
minimum of horse vehicles from 10,000 to
11,000 pounds and an advance in the class
ification of automobiles from first ciaus to
110 per cent of first class and the couimi4
sion is not satisfied that these Items should
be suspended. This - uling, however, will
not prevent or delay the hearing of any
complaint which has been made or may
be made against the reasonableness of
these or any other Increases effected by,
the new classification."
Official classification territory Includes
all that part of the United States north
of the Potomao and Ohio rivers und eant
of the Mississippi river, it takes in th
cities of Bt Louis and Chicago.
For purposes of convenience all freight
that is not moved under commodity or
special rates Is divided Into several
classes, the first class taking the hlghtat
rate except in particular instances whore
special articles ara required to pay more
than the first-class rate, the second ciau
