' " tNIVERSITT OF WASHINGTON,
Seattle, Wash., May 24. (Special.)
With a lead of six scant feet the
purple and gold oarsmen nosed their
shell across the finish line and de
feated the California crew in the
annual varsity boat race, held on
Lake Washington this morning. The
Northern freshmen also won their
race, outclassing the babes from the
Bear University by five lengths. The
lake was smooth and the weather
warm. In difference to Saturday even
ing, when the race was postponed
after the Washington shell capsized
When half way through the course.
California's heartbreaking sprint
during the last half mile was the
feature of the race, and officials and
witnesses are frank in their opinion
that had the course been 20 yards
further, victory would have come to
the gold and blue. The Bars over
came an entire length during the last
440 yards and were creeping up on
the Washington shell with each
stroke. The stem of the Washing
tonlans was just six feet in the lead
when the gun sounded at the finish.
The time was IS minutes and S5
Bears I.nse to Stroke.
The varsity race was Judged to be
the hardest fought and the closest
ever witnessed on northern waters
Seldom was water visible betwen the
two shells. The start was made at
10:57. Washington caught the water
first and got under way with a sprint
of 38 strokes to the minute. Califor
nia making a like number. The
northern men held down to "33" and
the advantage of the long lay back
of the Conibar stroke became ap
parent. At the end of the first mile
Washington was leading by a quar
ter length, which was Increased to
a half length in the next few hun
dred yards. Washington was hitting
a 31 stroke to California's shorter 32.
At the two-mile point Washington
gained the lead which was respon
sible for their victory. The northmen
responded to the coxswain's call for
an increase of one in their stroke.
and the home shell forged ahead for
a three-fourths length lead, which
was widened then from a full length
to a length and one-fourth. Then
the real grind began. California in
creased its stroke to an extent that
recaptured a quarter length, and
Washington added another notch to
Its speed in an effort to maintain
the lead. Washington was pulling
a 36 stroke, a gruelling sprint ac
cording to the northern method of
rowing. California was leaping ahead i
with a neart-oreaking pace or is
strokes to the minute and fighting
to win. The purple and gold, how
ever, clung to its scant lead until
the finish line was crossed.
Freshmen Overcome Lead.
The freshmen race over the two-
mile course showed clearly the su
premacy of the Washington yearlings.
The Californlans got under way first
and won a length lead in the first
200 yards. But at the half way mark
the Washington youngsters forged
ahead and Increased their lead from
one length to five in the last mile.
Time was 10 minutes and 54 seconds.
The sportmanship of the Califor
nlans has caused much favorable
comment in Seattle. It was the wish
of the southern crew that the race
be rowed over, after the Washington
shell was swamped Saturday by the
high waves. The invaders left for
home Immediately after the race.
The line-ups follow:
