NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The championship tournament of the Intercollegiate Polo Association is to be held again this year on the turf of the Westchester Biltmore Club at Rye, N. Y. The tournament will take place from June 19 to June 26. This year, in addition to the regular University team games, a new class will be organized consisting of the Freshman teams of Yale, Princeton, and Harvard, which will also compete for intercollegiate honors.

The holding of these intercollegiate polo games gives a clear indication of the extraordinary progress which the sport has made among college athletics during recent years. There is hardly a parallel to this sudden rise in popularity of a game in American sporting history.
