INTERCOLLEGIATE FENCING

University Team Defeated Yale in Preliminary Round at New York.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Although the University fencing team did not come up to expectations in the preliminaries of the intercollegiate at New York on Saturday, they took third place from Yale and thus qualified for the finals. This is the only time that the team will meet Yale this season. The matches with Yale were won by the University team six bouts to three.

Cornell and Columbia fenced very well. The Harvard men were slow in getting started but improved as they got more used to the conditions. In the afternoon they won only two out of nine bouts, but in the evening they won eight more, so that their total score was 10. Cornell scored 20 bouts. Columbia 19, and Yale 5. On the whole the showing of the team was the best made since 1906. R. von Nardroff '15 took five bouts, J. A. Aylen '15 three, P. J. Putnam '15 one, and S. F. Damon '14 (captain) one.
