ATHLETICS.

DwiOBT Harold Ingram, '16.

The two final games of the 1015 foot-
ball season were thoroughly successful
from the undergraduate point of view.
In the semi-final contest a substitute
line-up had no difficulty in defeating
Brown by the score of 16 to 7. The bril-
liant 41 to victory over Yale set several
records. In the first place, it was the
largest margin by which Harvard ever
beat Yale, lacking only 7 points of equal-
ing the record set by Yale's 48 to vic-
tory in 1884. This is also the most hu-
miliating defeat ever suffered by Yale.
The first touchdown of the 41 to vic-
tory, scored by R. Harte, '17, of Phila-
delphia, was the first time Harvard has
scored a touchdown against Yale in the
Stadium. Furthermore, the present
Senior Class, 1916, has seen four succes-
sive victories over both Yale and Prince-

112 to Yale's 5 points in the four games.
Captain £. W. Mahan, '16, of Natick,
dosed his splendid football career by
scoring a touchdown in every period of
the game. The contest above all else was
a victory of the system which Coach
Percy D. Haughton, '90, has been build-
ing up for the past 8 years. The statis-

W. J. Boles, '18, of Dorchester; L. Cur-
tis, 8d, '16, of Boston; H. H. Dadmun,
'18, of Arlington; J. A. Doherty, '16, of

Qeveland. O., and F. W. E<^er, '18, of
Shelter Island, N.Y., were appointed
second assistant managers of the Univer-
sity and of the second football teams,
respectively.

The football team was tendered a din-
ner by the Harvard Club of Boston at
the Copley Plasa Hotel on Dec. 22,
which 700 alumni and undergraduates
attended. The speakers included Maj.
H. L. Higginson, '55, Robert F. Herrick,
'90, T. W. Slocum, '90, and Capt. E. W.
Mahan, '16.

The captain chosen for the 1916 foot-
ball team is J. A. Gilman, Jr., '17, of
Honolulu, Hawaii. Gilman was regular
left tackle on the team last fall, and was
picked by almost all the critics, including
Walter Camp, for the all-America team.
He played on his Freshman team, and
alternated between guard and tadde for
the University m 1913. He left College
last year and took a position in Washing-
ton, D.C., but returned this year. He
prepared at Exeter, and played on the
football team there. He u 28 years old,
6 feet 1 inch tall, and wei^ 187 pounds.

With North Carolina and Virginia on
the 1916 sdiedule, the University eleven
has the prospect of meeting the two
strongest teams from the south. Seven

Freshman,
Largdy due to frequent f umUes, the
1919 footbaU team lost to the Yale fresh-
men by the score of 80 to 14. While the
Harvard Freshman backs had a shade on
Yale, the latter's line, coupled with the
powerful plunging of Merrick, the Blue
fullback, was more than 1919 could hold.
Like so many of the Univeraty games
last fall, the tale was told by the winning
team*8 getting the jump at the start.

second team brought a most successful
season to a dose. In all its five games
the team was not scored on. Groton,
M.I.T. freshmen, Princeton seconds,

The Freshmen won the interdaas foot-
ball title, defeating the Juniors in the
final contest by the score of 14 to 0. —
Smith Halls became the interdormitory
champions by scoring a 39 to victory
over the Standish team.

Five victories and two defeats was the
successful record of the University
hockey team up to the start of the Yale
series. The speedy Canadian team from
Queen's College narrowly defeated the
University by the score of 4 to S in a
very fast game, the most brilliant feature
being the goal-tending of J. I. Wylde,
'17, of Boston, who made S6 stops, many
of them being from difficult an^es.
Harvard downed McGill University for
the first time sinoe 1911. The seven also
won all of its early games against Ameri-
can college teams, the climax being the
double defeat of Princeton at the Boston
Arena and at St. Nidiolas Rink, New
York. Wylde again did the best work of
any individual, and he was well sup-
ported on the defence by the spectacular
playing of Ciq>ta]n J. E. P. Morgan, *17,
of New York. Princeton failed to score
in the series because of the superiority of
Harvard's defence and because of their
inability to stand up under the strain of
unusually hard games. The record of the
University to date:

Dec. 18. B.A.A., 3; H.. 1.
Jan. 8. Queen's, 4; H.. 3.

11. H., 2; Cornell, 0.
15. H., 8; Princeton, 0.
22. H., 2; Princeton, 0.
29. H.. 4; McGill, 1.

Feb. 4. H., 6: Dartmouth, 0.

12. H., 2; Yale, O.

With 80 candidates at the start of the
season, the 1919 team had a successful
early season. The year opened with the
defeat of Milton Academy by the score
of 5 to on Dec. 19, the contest being the
formal opening of the Academy's new



rink. Hie Freshmen have since been
handicapped by the lack of ice for prac-
tice in the Stadium or on the river, and
their next several games had to be post-
poned or canceled.

The second hockey team won its first
two games. Both victories were ea^y
and the pUying was ragged. The scores



Jan. 23. H. 2d. 7; Middleeez School, 2.
Feb. 4. H. 2d. 14; Stone School, 0.

W. C. Appleton, Jr., '17, of Cohasset,
was elected captain of the second team.

Several graduates have subscribed
$100 for a silver cup to be awarded the
winning team in the Freshman inter-
dormitory series. Cups have now been
offered in every branch of major ath-
letics. — ^xteen teams this winter com-
peted in the scrub hockey games on the
river.

Interest in the winter relay season
reached a record height thb year, as 72
candidates tried out for the University
and Freshman teams. In the Coast
Artillery games on Jan. 29, a quartet
composed of £. A. Tesdmer, '17, of
Lawrence, W. Willcox, Jr., '17, of Nor-
folk, Va., T. R. Pennypackcr, '16, of
Cambridge, and Captain W. J. Bing-
ham, '16, of Methuen, defeated the
M.I.T. team by a margin of over 20
yards. At the same time the 1919 run-
ners won their race from the Technology
freshmen.

Harvard finished sixth in the intercol-
legiate cross-country championship over
a six-mile course in Franklin Park on the
morning of the Yale footbaU game. Con-
trary to expectations, the University of
Maine won the contest. This was the
first time that any team other than Har-
vard or Cornell has held the title. The
University finished well ahead of Yale,
which stood ninth among the team to-

Uls. K. E. Fuller, '16, of Cambridge,
who was the only one to win his "H" in
the dual race against Yale, was the first
Harvard runner to finish. A. R. Ban-
croft, '17, of West Newton, was elected
captain of the University team for the
1916 season. He was on his Freshman
team, and led the Harvard team last
fall in the run against Cornell, although
an attack of blood poisoning kept him
from starring in the Yale race.

The new field event coach, E. H.
Clark, has devised a heavy canvas cur-
tain for hammer-throwing practice in the
Baseball Cage. The men stand about 15
feet from the curtain and throw as in
regular outdoor work. This is the first
time the University hammer-throwers*
have been able to keep in training during
the winter.

R. H. Howe, '19, of Hyde Park, has
been appointed manager, and J. Lincoln,
2d, '19, of Brookline, assistant manager
of the Freshman track team.

Besides the annual fixtures on the
schedule, the University oarsmen will
meet Princeton on Lake Carnegie during
the April recess. This is the first time in
three years that the two crews have met.
The last time was in 1913 when Prince-
ton won a triangular regatta against
Harvard and Pennsylvania In the
Charles River Basin. The renewal of
rowing relations with Princeton means
that the system of triangular competi-
tion with Yale and Princeton now covers
the fields of debating, music, and all of
the major sports except track. The Uni-
versity will not race Annapolis this year.

The . University association football
team ended an unsuccessful season with
defeats in the four final league games. In
a hard, driving rain, Yale beat Har-
vard on the day preceding the football
contest. The University had constant
chances to score, and kept the ball in the
Blue territory most of the game, but
poor shooting held down their point
total. O. G. Daly, '17, of Baltimore,
Md., has been chosen captain of the
team for next season, and Manager J. K.
Hoyt, Jr., '17, of New York, has been
elected president of the intercollegiate
league. W. B. Clough, '18, of West Rox-
bury, won the competition for second
assistant manager. The following were

Fall tennis was brought to a dose
when R. N. Williams, 2d, 16. won the

ing H. G. M. Kdleher, '18, in the final
match by a score of 6-S, 4-6, 6-^. Ten-
nis last fall bron^^t out the record num-
ber of 142 entries in the angles tourna-
ment. This event not only proved its
value by providing practice for the play-
ers, but brought forward several new
men of marked ability. The diief of
these was R. C. Rand, '10, who was
runner-up in both the singles and dou-
bles of the University championships,
and who, together with J. Weber, of
Andover, won the indoor junior doubles
title of the country during the Christmas
vacation.

According to final statistics, 1628 stu-
dents engaged in athletics between the
opening of College and the Christmas
recess. The sport calling out the greatest
number was football, with 866 names.
This is an increase of 19 over 1914, in
spite of the fact that the Hau^ton cup
scrub series was canceled. The total
figure is subject to certain qualifications.
Baseball, rowing, and huaosse had short
seasons, and many enrolled in these
sports are probably induded elsewhere
in the list. In the case of tennis many
taking part in the singles toiunament
also played in the doubles and interdass
contests. There is probably also repeti-
tion owing to the indusion of hodcey,
wrestling, swimming, fencing, and gym-
nastics, which properly bdong to the
winter season. The summary:

HARVARD CXUBS.

LONDON.

The Harvard Club of London gave a
luncheon at the Savoy Hotel on Dec. 7
to the doctors and surgeons of the Sec-
ond Harvard Hospital Unit, who ar-
rived in London a few days before on
their way from America to France to
replace the first Harvard Hospital Unit.
J. H. Seavems, *81, president, presided
at the luncheon. Both he and Lord
Bryce, who was present, made speeches
on the service which Harvard was giving,
and the thanks due from Great Britain
to America for the moral support that
has been and is being given to the Allies.
Lieut.-Col. Cheever replied in a speech
which outlined the work done by Har-
vard in sending these Hospital Units.
The occasion closed with the singing of
"Fair Harvard" led by Col Cheever. —
The Club is still collecting money for
the relief of war sufferers. The fund has
proved peculiarly valuable because, as
it is unrestricted, money can be given
wherever the need is most pressing.
The Ediior will be glad to furnish par-
ticulars to individuab interested.
