FENCERS PREPARE FOR HARD YEAR'S SCHEDULE

Only Two Veterans of Last Season's First Team on Hand--Modell, Star and Captain, Graduates

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

With only two lettermen returning, the University fencing team faces an unusually difficult schedule this winter. Captain D. I. Modell '30, who met with considerable success in the New England Intercollegiate Tournament last year, who graduated last June leaves a place hard to fill.

Bowdoin and Boston University, who did not test the team greatly last year, have been dropped from this year's schedule, to be replaced by the strong West Point swordsmen.

Fencing candidates have been working out for the past week in the Hemenway Gymnasium, and it is apparent that Coach Rene Peroy has a difficult task before him. Peroy was a noted amateur and leading member of the New York Fencer's Club before succeeding J. S. Danguy as University mentor this year. He now faces the task of whipping into shape a team considerably less experienced and probably weaker than that of last year.

This year's fencing schedule follows:

February 8--Columbia.

February 15--Navy.

February 21--New York University at New York.

February 22-Pennsylvania at Philadelphia.

March 1--West Point at West Point. Harvard Club at New York.

March 8--Yale.

March 15--New England Intercollegiates at New Haven
