JUGGLED LINE-UP TO OPPOSE MAPLE A. A.

Green Team Held Boston Hockey Club to 1-0 Victory Last Week--Hard Play Should Mark Contest

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

New developments and hard play should be the features of the hockey game at 8.15 tonight with the Maple A. a. new developments because of a juggled Harvard line-up and hard play because of the sturdy green jerseyed team which held the Boston Hockey Club to a 1-0 victory last Wednesday.

The shift in the Crimson front, with which Coach Winsor experimented in the Tech game, consists of Beals and Hodder exchanging places. The change has aroused some comment in sport circles, and is popularly explained by Beals frequent failure to score under opportune conditions. Supporters of this view point out that in Harvard's scheme the wing is the scoring position, and explain that it was only Beals' unusual ability that kept him in the first string when apparently ineffective at his post by the right boards. This theory loses force, however, when it is remembered that Hodder, the new right wing, is a southpaw, who could hardly be expected to perform any better than his predecessor, since he will have to shoot from his back-hand.

Will improve Passing Game

The logical explanation for the shift is that it will improve the Crimson passing game, as Beals is better fitted to hold the keystone position form his year's more experience in University hockey. He started the season at the outer post, quite naturally, because he is a right-handed shot.

In the last few games Hodder has amply demonstrated his skill as a rapid-shifting stick handler, but his agility at outwitting the man in front of him has not infrequently served to divert his attention from the more important task of speeding toward the opponents' cage. In his new position the boards make it harder for him to dodge, and more necessary to skate fast.
