Hockey Squad to Have Benefit of Two Full Afternoons Each Week for Practice in Arena by New Arrangement

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

When hockey candidates report for their first work outs on Monday, November 26, they will have full use of the Boston Arena for the entire afternoon, instead of for a few hours late in the afternoon as in former years.

The Harvard Athletic Association has leased the Boston Arena for two full afternoons a week during the approaching hockey season. According to arrangements just completed between Mr. G. V. Brown, manager of the Boston Arena, and F. W. Moore '93, graduate treasurer of the Harvard Athletic Association, Harvard hockey teams will be given undisputed use of the Arena ice from 2-6 o'clock on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.

In previous years the Arena has been open to the public for the better part of every afternoon. As a result, the University hockey teams were forced to practice in the Arena late in the afternoon on poor ice and at irregular hours, while the second team and the Freshman team were forced to rely on the uncertain natural ice of the Charlesbank rinks.

This year for two afternoons a week, at least, the University hockey team will be freed from the handicap of late practice and 'snow' ice, and the Freshman and second teams will be given an opportunity for indoor practice.

"Both Yale and Princeton now have indoor hockey rinks," said Mr. Moore yesterday, "and we must make more indoor practice possible for the Harvard hockey team if it is to hold its own against the teams of Yale and Princeton."
