During the last week-end the University's teams entered in minor sports succeeded in winning two swimming meets, two polo games, two wrestling meets, a basketball game, and nine squash matches.
Leading at the half-time by a score of 17 to 10, the Harvard University quintet held off a desperate Vermont rally last Saturday night, January 10, for a final victory of 31 to 28. From a straggling start, the Crimson basketmen had the situation well in hand at the beginning of the second period, but the appearance of the second-string men on the floor spurred the players from Burlington to a spurt which threatened the Harvard ascendency.
The Crimson playing was marked by the brilliant scoring ability of Captain T.E. Farrell '31, and of W. J. Holland '32, who each tallied 12 counts.
