PRINCETON DEFEATS CRIMSON WRESTLING, SWIMMING TEAMS

Lack of Swimmers Causes Jayvee Meet Cancellation

Out for an Ivy League victory, the Crimson mermen traveled to Princeton Saturday only to be dunked by a hot Tiger team, 47 to 28. Captain Johnny Eusden and George Christman did their best to hold up the loser's end, each taking one first and one second place.

The Jayvee meet with Brookline, scheduled for Saturday, was postponed because the Crimson couldn't gather together enough swimmers to form a Jayvee squad. The manpower shortage has also taken quite a bite out of the Varsity, but has left them with at least enough men for regular competition.
