Discussion of Hockey at Yale

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard having made hockey a major sport only last winter, the attitude toward doing the same thing at Yale is of interest to members of the University. Manager T. L. Daniels '14 of the Yale team has written the following article for the Yale News: "I believe that it would be a good thing to make hockey a major sport at Yale, providing, however, that the new artificial ice-rink which is planned will be completed. This is only one reason, however; the other is the influence of Harvard's making it a major sport last year. Their action drew attention to the importance of the sport, and is a step in the direction of its becoming a major at Yale.

"Hockey is worthy of becoming a major sport because it is the only feasible winter sport of importance. There is football in the fall, and the spring has three major activities, but the winter has none. Hockey is the logical winter sport and deserves recognition as a major sport. The new rink would bring a number of important teams to this city, and hockey will base its claim for recognition on the consummation of the plan for the artificial ice-rink."
