Syracuse Crew Coach Declares Nile
Distance Just as Injurious to
Untraiined Men
Old Jim Ten Eyck, the Syracuse
University rowing coach, in the latest
issue of the "Syracusan," tells how
colleges came to row four miles.
"One day a couple of English oars-
men started out for a little row -on
the Thames," writes Ten Eyck. "One
of them said to the other, 'My bally
old chap, I'll row you from Putney to
the ship at Mayferes and when we get
there we'll have a couple of beers.'
And so they each started out in their
sculls, and when they Mayferes they
went to a roadhouse and had refresh-
"Other old-time oarsmen followed
their example, and it became a favorite
pull. When Oxford and Cambridge
took up rowing they followed the old
men and rowed from Putney to May-,
feres. You know how hard it is to
changean Englishman once he gets
into a rut.
"Well, it so happened that the dis-
tance from Putney to Mayferes was
four miles and 300 yards. When Yale
and Harvard took up rowing in this
country, they looked over the ocean
and saw that Oxford rowed about four
miles, so they decided that this was'
the proper distance and began rowing
that distance over here.
"But, as a matter of fact, the dis-
tance here has not always been four
miles. The first race was little more
than a mile and a half. The later
races were on small lakes and covered
only a fraction of four miles. When
the crews got on larger bodies of
water, they adopted the English four-
soile course. There is no other reason
why they should row four miles.'
"I believe that it is unnecessary to
row four miles, but it does not hurt
a man any more to row four miles
than it does to row a mile and a half.
If he is in condition to row, he will
not feel the difference.

excellent showing at the intercol-
legiates this spring and may spring
a surprise next year. Hardell, Hun-
tington, and Scofield are all capable
performers, while the 440 is "Robbie's"
best event. Fox is the man who cap-
tained this year's freshmans squad. He
is a hard worker and may develop un-
der competition.
At the present time, the half-mile
looks like the Wolverines' weakest
event for 1917. Murphy, Ufer, and
Fox, last year's star 880 men, have all
graduated, leaving "Bill" Fox as the
only experienced runner in this race
The freshman, however, is an extreme-
ly good man in this event.
In the mile, the two veterans, Car-
roll and Donnelly, will again be ont

Fuess, two extremely promising look-
