    Background: THE RUSSIAN TEAM, ZJALGHIRIS VILJNJUS, WON THE PREMIER EVENT OF HENLEY ROYAL REGATTA TODAY (SATURDAY). FINISHING A BRILLIANT WEEK ON THE USUALLY QUIET THAMES, THEY CAPTURED THE GRAND CHALLENGE CUP FROM THE HOLDERS, LONDON UNIVERSITY, BY SOME SIX LENGTHS IN 6 MINUTES 25 SECS.

    FOR THE RUSSIANS, IT WAS THEIR 14TH VICTORY IN THE REGATTA AND THEIR FIFTH SUCCESS IN THE GRAND.

    SEYMOUR CROMWELL, OF THE NONPAREIL ROWING CLUB, U.S.A., CRUISED HOME TO WIN THE DIAMOND SCULLS 2 3/4 LENGTHS AHEAD OF ARGENTINEAN ALBERTO DEMIDDI. CROMWELL STRUCK AT ABOUT 30 FOR MOST OF THE RACE AND WAS NEVER IN DANGER. HIS TIME: 8 MINS 6 SECS.

    OTHER GRAND CHALLENGE CUP WINNERS WERE THERE TOO... FROM THE YEAR 1914. THEY ARE THE HARVARD UNIVERSITY JUNIOR CREW NOW OF AN AVERAGE AGE OF 70 WHO ROWED AGAIN TODAY A HALF CENTURY AFTER WINNING THE CUP.

    AMONG THEM ARE A SENATOR, TWO LAWYERS AND THREE BANKERS. QUEEN ELIZABETH, THE QUEEN MOTHER, PRESENTED COMMEMORATIVE MEDALS TO THEM. THE VETERAN CREW ALSO MET PRINCESS MARGARET AND LORD SNOWDON.
