No Lake Placid vacation amused Coach John Chase's hockey team during the Christmas holidays. With very little collegiate rink action at the winter resort, the Crimson pucksters spent the Yuletide working out on local rinks to keep in shape for the two games scheduled this week.
Last year, the skaters played a three-game series with the Princeton Tigers, and two contests were won by the Nassau sextet. There will thus be a three-week layoff between struggles for the Chasemen, whose next engagement is a return encounter with the Boston University Terriers, the same squad which fell 18 to 3 to the Crimson club in its last embroglio.
First Pentagonal League contest for the puckmen will take place on Saturday night, when the Chase forces journey to Princeton to take on the Nassau representatives. No changes are expected in the starting lineup, which will probably feature Marc Beebe, Caleb Loring, and Bill Harding on the front line, Captain Johnny Paine and Dick Mechem at defense, and Goodie Harding in the cage.
