With the acquisition of the Common-wealth Armory as a practice grounds Lieutenant Browning has taken the culminating step towards placing polo on an equal basis with other minor sports in the University. Yale and Princeton have until a year ago been virtually without rivals in this game. In the intercollegiates last spring, there were found to be several other colleges capable of supplying some degree of competition for the institutions which inaugurated polo.
Unfortunately the University was not at that time one of these, as the opposition she furnished was hardly worthy of the name. Like Harvard's black sheep, swimming, polo has heretofore not been able to compete successfully against deplorable lack of equipment and interest. But now with an excellent coach and one of the finest riding floors in the country, it is already giving indications that by next spring it will gain the prestige of an organized sport. Nothing, of course, succeeds like success, but it may be hoped the enlarged prospect of success which has opened up will bring to polo at Harvard all the trappings of an organized sport.
