NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The receipt by the management of the University Rifle Team of a letter from the official scorer for the War Department Rifle Practice Board assures the Crimson sharpshooters of their third victory this season. Following their wins over Dartmouth and the 1923 team, the marksmen are new adjudged superior to the Columbia University rifle men, as the result of the recent match.

The totals in point run up by the rival teams were identical, the five high men on each squad aggregating 966 tallies for their side, but as the University shooting on Remington U.M.C. targets scored 1.7 and 38's, to the 1.7 and 6.8's made by the New York men with Winchester targets, the government expert decided that the Harvard quintet had the best of the tie.

The University Rifle team has already fixed upon seven matches during the rest of the season, and a number of others are now being arranged. The next meet will be with the Bewdoin mark-men on February 14.

The scores in the Columbia contest were as follows:

C. L. Wilson '20, 197: R. Currier '22 197: S. K. Rejam '21 190: total 966.
