SWIMMING A MINOR SPORT
RECOGNIZED BY ACTION OF COMMITTEE ON REGULATION OF ATHLETIC SPORTS.
At a meeting of the Committee on the Regulation of Athletic Sports held yesterday afternoon, it was decided to accept swimming as a minor sport at the University.
Swimming as a sport was abolished at Harvard in 1909 because of the lack of sufficient facilities. Since the new tank was installed in the Cambridge Y. M. C. A., the undergraduates interested in the sport held a series of informal meets, which brought out a stock of good material. Plans for next year's season include a system of professional coaching, and meets with Amherst, Andover, Brookline Gymnasium, Brown, Waltham Swimming Club, Williams, and Yale.
