New Arena Opened January 1

The new Boston Arena, where the University hockey team will play its home contests this winter, was opened on the evening of New Year's Day. A crowd of more than six thousand people attended the opening carnival.

Because of many difficulties in preparing the ice making machinery, the management of the Arena had to make a great of fort to open the new rink on schedule time. But after a week of delays and disappointments they were finally sole to get a coating of ice over the concrete floor eight hours after the first drops of water were sprinkled on the surface at noon on New Year's Day,--establishing a new record for laying the first cost of ice; the best obvious time of four days was made at the Duquesne Gardens in Pittsburg.
