Ballou '93; Hawes '93; Van Kleeck '95; and Wilson '94.
Each player will play two games with every other man in his section. All games must be played and the results left at 19 Holyoke House on or before November 22, the committee reserving the right to drop any man who has not finished by that time. The two men in each section having the highest score will play in the final round.
