NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The first year of swimming as an organized sport at Harvard will be begun about November 25, on which date practice for the team will start. All candidates, including Freshmen and members of last year's team, should sign the blue-book at Leavitt & Peirce's, indicating their events and whether or not they have ever played water polo. Practice will be held every afternoon for an hour in the tank of the Cambridge Y. M. C. A. One evening a week will also be spent in the Brookline pool, where the squad will be under the direction of Matthew Mann, the swimming expert there. P. Withington '09 will be the regular coach of the team, and E. H. Jose '10 will probably have charge of the water-polo players.

The following meets have been arranged: February 8, Yale at New Haven; February, 21, Amherst at Cambridge; March 29, Brown at Providence. Others will probably be added to this list.

The prospects for a successful season are very encouraging, since nearly all of last year's team have returned. It is hoped, however, that a large number of new men will plan to try for the team. The schedule this year is a hard one and a large squad is necessary.
