A recent poll of this year's twenty-fifth reunion class shows that tennis is the most popular of all games among the old Crimson grads. Of 592 members of the Harvard Class of 1949 who responded to a questionaire, 237 said they play tennis. Skiing was the second most popular sport among the '49ers, with sailing copping a close third. None of the respondents reported that they play stickball with any regularity.

Another finding of potential sociological significance is that only 52 per cent of the responding alums "approve of the concept of the Olympic Games." Just 4 per cent of the respondents disapprove of Harvard's current athletic program.
