In a triple-header bill of, boxing, wrestling, and basketball, Crimson and Green intramural and Jayvee teams will clash in the second annual Harvard-Dartmouth indoor winter sports meet this Saturday. The three-cornered battle will take place in the Indoor Athletic Building with the starting gun scheduled for 7.30 o'clock and the tariff placed at 25 cents.
Last year at Hanover a meet of this same kind was held with such success that the H.A.A. has agreed to sponsor the feature this winter in the hope of building up interest in intramural sports. Lowell House, champions of the House League for two years, and at present well on the way to a third victory, will provide the Crimson team for the basketball game, opposing an Indian quintet made up of players chosen from the 52 dormitory and fraternity teams at Hanover.
In the boxing and wrestling events the Green will enter the winners of its intramural championships, while Harvard, lacking such tournaments, will send in three wrestlers and five boxers from its Jayvee teams. A sixth boxing event was originally planned, in the heavyweight class, but this has been cancelled due to lack of entrants.
Earlier in the evening, the members of both forces, together with the officials, will be welcomed at a dinner in Lowell House. Julian L. Coolidge '95, Master of the House, will preside.
Predecessors of this type of intramural meet, in addition to the indoor program staged at Dartmouth a year ago, have been the annual encounters in such sports as football and crew between the champions of the Harvard Houses and the similar units from the Yale colleges. In all of these cases the H.A.A. has been trying to increase the number of occasions in which men of sub-Varsity calibre can represent the College against outside competition. An admission fee will be charged in an effort to save the H.A.A. from losing money on the event, but any proceeds over expenses will be used as a fund for House athletics.
