Harvard's Varsity lacrosse team plays its first home contest this afternoon when it meets the strong M.I.T. ten on the Business School field at 4.30 o'clock. In spite of early season reverses in the Crimson ranks, and a decided victory surge of the Engineers, Coach Poole is confident of a good showing.
To date, the Harvard stickmen have lost one game, and tied another. Their defeat came at the hands of St. John's one of the strongest teams in Maryland, to the tune of 4-3; but, on the other hand, they managed to hold the powerful Annapolis aggregation to a 6-6 draw. M.I.T. has played one game, and at that time it downed Boston University by the one-sided score of 10-0.
