FIVE GOES INTO ACTION WITH SYRACUSE TONIGHT

GORDON'S RETURN PUTS WACHTER MEN AT FULL STRENGTH

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

After two weeks of inaction the University quintet will meet Syracuse University this evening at 8 o'clock at Hemenway-Gymnasium. With the possible exception of the Columbia fray, tonight's contest should prove to be the most severe test thus far this year.

This game marks the opening of a new phase in the basketball season. The period before mid-years was chiefly one of gradual development. That development has been furthered in strenuous practice sessions interspersed among the examinations of the past two weeks. Now the team will be called upon to reach and maintain the peak of its power in successive contests with. Syracuse, Dartmouth, Pennsylvania, and Yale. These four aggregations, the last three of which rank high in the Intercollegiate League, will furnish a far stronger brand of basketball than the Crimson's early season opponents.

Crimson at Full Strength

The Harvard five that takes the floor against the Orange and Blue this evening will be the Strongest that Coach Wachter can muster. Captain Gordon has entirely recovered from his trouble-some leg injury, and he is counted upon to lead his team's attack.

Syracuse has the reputation of turning out formidable basketball teams, and this year's five is no exception to the rule. Its recent 31 to 26 defeat at the hands of the Army is indicative of Strength rather than weakness, for the Cadets have one of the strongest quintets in the East. McRae, and end on Walter Camp's second All-American eleven last fall, is the visitor's star, brilliant alike on attack and defense. Captain Fasce, right forward, is another versatile performer.
