APPOINT ADVISORY FOOTBALL BOARD

Acted in That Capacity Under Haughton Regime--Two Track Men Given Letters in Latest H. A. A. Session

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The appointment of a new Graduate Advisory Committee on Football was the chief action taken by the Committee on the Regulation of Athletic Sports at its last meeting. The results of the meeting were made public last night by Major F. W. Moore '92, Graduate Treasurer.

The Advisory Committee was appointed to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of the former Committee, which went out of office last winter after its failure to come to a decision on a new football coach. The Athletic Committee then took over the task of choosing a new coach, which had been the chief duty of the Graduate Committee.

Advisory Powers Only

The newly appointed Committee will differ from the former one in that its function are more distinctly of an advisory nature. It will assist Head Coach Horween in picking his assistants and in formulating his policies, but will have no decisive powers.

The Committee is composed of the following men: Regular members, J. Wells Farley '99, chairman, Ernest W. Soucy '16, Westmore Wilcox '17, Charles A. Coolidge Jr. '17, and Herbert H. White '93; associate members, Griscom Bettle '14, of Chicago, Lawrence D. Smith '12, of Chicago, and John W. Cutler '09, of New York. Mr. Farley, the chairman, was also chairman of the committee during the larger part of the Haughton regime at Harvard.

Greely Given H

On the recommendation of the Student Council the Committee awarded a track H to J. M. Greely '25. This recommendation was based on the fact that Greely had unquestionably been prevented from winning his letter in the high jump by an injury to his back, which he received in competition.

The committee also confirmed the award of the track H to C. A. Pratt '28, who placed in the indoor intercollegiates last winter in the shot put.

The final action of the committee was the appointment of Fred Parent, formerly of the Boston American League baseball team, as coach of the second University baseball team for the coming spring season.
