With three letter men back from last year's team, the boxing squad is now preparing for a schedule of five matches beginning with the match with M.I.T. on Friday, January 13.
A large turnout when practice started included much strong reserve material besides men with Varsity experience and a number of men who were winners in the University tournament last spring.
The three Varsity lettermen back are W. G. Cooper '33, captain of this year's team, in the 165-pound class, P. W. A. Hines '34 in the 155-pound class, and M. A. Lamb '34 in the 115-pound class.

R. Borden '35 in the 135-pound class, R. R. McGoodwin '34 in the 145-pound class, Herman Gross '33 in the 155-pound class, K. N. Simonian '34 in the 165-pound class, and A. D. Robertson '34 in the 175-pound class.

The squad has been practicing daily from 4 to 5 o'clock in the afternoon under the direction of Coach Lamar. In addition to the squad practice, classes in boxing are held every day in the Indoor Athletic Building for all those interested. Coach Lamar announced that if enough House members come out for these workouts, House boxing teams will be organized.
The schedule of the Varsity team is as follows: Friday, January 13, M.I.T.; Saturday, February 11, Army at West Point; Friday, February 17, U. S. Coast Guard Academy at New London; and Saturday, March 4, Yale.
