Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridfte Daily Herald, Thursday, March 24.1910. HOW OXFORD WON GREAT BOAT RACE Cartridge Tried Hard But Never Had a Chance Putney, Mar. defeated Cambridge in the annual eight-oared rowing race over the championship course from Putney to Mortiand in ho low fashion to-day by three lengths The 'time was 20 minutes and sec onds.

It was a perfect spring day, the sun shining brightly while there was hardly a ripple on the Thames. There was practically no choice in sta- tions. Despite the early hour of the start and -the fact-that the contest was made on Wednesday instead of on a Saturday as has ben usual, the crowd in attendance was quite up to the usual standard. All points along the river from which even a glimpse of tne passing boats could be obtained were lined .with spectators while as always a fleet of launches and plea- sure crafts followed in the wake of the shells. The Oxonians remained strong fav- orites among the Riverside men and in the betting having the advantage of 35 pounds in weight, but undaunted by this lack of popular confidence -in their representatives the Cambridgeites turned out in full force and cheered en- couragingly to the wearers of the light blue. The official time of the winning crew at the various points on the course was as follows: Start, 12.26; first mile 4 minutes, 20 seconds; Hammersmith bridge 7 min- utes, 42 seconds, Chiswick church 12 minutes, 20 seconds; Barnes bridge, 16 minutes, 46 seconds. Finish, 20 minutes, 14 seconds. According to
