SIX VETERANS OUT FOR FIRST POLO PRACTICE
Team to Open Season December 11 With Local Four--No College Competition Until February
Polo was off to a flying start yesterday when six veterans and eight other potential mallet swingers reported to Captain Chester E. Sargent, polo coach, at the Commonwealth Armory for the first practice session of the current season.
Inaugurating the indoor season here, the Varsity will face a local Class A outfit, to be announced later, on December 11. The team is up against no college opposition until February.
Among the veterans reporting was H. Gaylord Dillingham '40, acting captain in the absence of Captain Francis F. von Stade, Jr., who did not return to college this year. Others were Warwick B. Stabler '40, George T. Duff '40, and John H. Lewis '40, of last year's Freshman outfit, and Charles Cary '39, and Bronson H. Rumsey '40, from the 1936-37 Varsity and Junior Varsity squads.
Benjamin E. Dillingham '39, outstanding veteran, is expected to report in the near future.
A crop of thirteen yearling poloists, four experienced candidates among them, show up for practice.
