The winter sports season reaches its semi-finals this evening, with the triangular track meet and the second Princeton hockey game contending for honors. Captain Owen's team will be on unfamiliar ice in the new Baker. Memorial rink, and the players will lack the support of a friendly audience to cheer them; but they will have the memory of an earlier defeat to urge them on.
Against Cornell and Dartmouth, the track team will be put to an equal strain, and will have its first important chance to prove itself under Captain Burke and its new coach. The Dartmouth coach has devised an "equation of victory"--but he overlooks the unknown "x," the element of extra strength that the University trackmen will be able to call up against such worthy opponents.
The cheering section at Mechanics Hall tonight will be doing double duty. No radio broadcaster has been installed, but by mental telepathy, at least, the support given to the track team will be forwarded to the hockey men at Princeton.
