Western Australia won the King's
Cup Race for the eight-oar rowing
New South Wales by less than six feet
in Melbourne on Saturday. It was one
of the most stirring races rowed on
the Yarra. In marked contrast, the
race for the President's Cup and ama-
teur sculling championship of Aus-
tralia,was won by Cecil Pearce '
(N.S.W.) by nearly 300 yards.
Western Australia's victory was its
fifth in 20 starts, and its first for ten
years. The time— 14 min. 13 2-5 sec.

Conditions were excellent, and a crowd
of about 10.000 watched.
The victory of Western Australia is
attributable in a large degree to the

The complete oarsman must be a water-
ing a horsemaster. and the best way to
achieve watermanship, it has been real-
A number of Adelaide oarsmen interested in
reviving this phase of rowing met at the
Exchange Hotel, Adelaide, this week. Their
object was to discuss ways of improving row-
ing and working out a system of providing
young oarsmen with the necessary boats.
The meeting felt that oarsmanship was lack-
ing in many cases throughlack of balance.
Sculling gave this balance.
A recommendation drawn up by Mr. L. W.
Ferres, was signed by all present. It read
as follows:—
"We, the undersigned members of the South
Australian Rowing Association desire to ask
the association to take steps to foster sculling
in this State. We recognise that, probably
owing to the lack of boats, the standard of
sculling is very low.. We suggest that the
association should appoint a sub-committee to
consider what steps could be taken to improve
it. We further suggest that, if every club
could obtain a sculling boat the standard
would rapidly improve."
There is sound commonsense in the sugges-
tion that each club should obtain a sculling
tub; that is, if rowing standards are to im-
prove.
It is to he hoped that the suggestion will be
taken up with enthusiasm by the Rowing As-
sociation, and perhaps the Union of Old Oars-
men.
