The University hockey team will play its fifth scheduled game of the season against the St. Francis Xavier College team of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in the Arena this evening at 8.15 o'clock. Tickets, at 50 cents, 75 cents, and $1 each, may be obtained at the door. Tickets at 75 cents may also be obtained at Leavitt & Peirce's until noon.
Harvard has played St. Francis Xavier twice before. In 1909 the University team won, 1 to 0, in a very exciting game. Last year, however, St. Francis was victorious by the score of 4 to 1.

Pierce, who will replace Leslie at left end, is fairly fast but is handicapped by lack of weight. St. Francis Xavier has four players from last year's championship team and is considered very strong, so a close game should result.
The line-ups will be as follows:
