An English rugby game with Yale has been tentatively scheduled for April 26 it was announced yesterday by T. L. Jarman 1G, organizer of the Harvard team. On Saturday the Eli players won 7-0 from a Philadelphia detachment of the United States Marines, in a game plays at New Haven. They are anxious to match forces with the Crimson in what would be the first contest of its kind in the history of the two universities.
"We will welcome any new recruits" Jarman stated. "At present there are 20 men reporting at 3.13 or Tuesdays and Thursdays, but as 15 are needed for rugby team we feel rather shorthanded Three quarters of the players have had experience in England, or Canada, but contrary to the general impression, we are not all graduate students there are ten Freshmen working with us."
The team has been practicing for two weeks, attired in soccer uniforms and using an American football. Jarman pioneer in the new athletic movement is a graduate of Oxford where he was an exhibitioner of New College. He is studying here as a Davison scholar.
