  • Description

    Oxford Regatta - officers u-men (university men?).

    University students compete on River Thames. First a row of boys dive off a long floating raft... swim toward rt. Side view same; swimming race in progress. Rowing boat races. Across water from camera; a row of small boats are launched; pushed into water; 2 guys jumping in; rowing toward cam and to rt.

    Shot of boats crowded w/ guys - some sit; some stand; all rowing - not getting anywhere very fast; as they're so weighted down. Then some wacky game going on; with the guys in 2 boats whacking at each other w/ pillows. Boat sinking; guys scrambling onto another boat.

    Fun; silly; college; youth; education; recreation.
