Billiard enthusiasts of the Freshman class will have the opportunity of watching Charles C. Peterson, director of intercollegiate billiard tournaments and dexterous cueman, put the ivory balls through their paces next Monday evening in the poolroom of the Union.

Peterson, who has been the instructor of many leading athletes of the green felt, and enjoys an enviable record in the game himself, has appeared before many colleges, giving an exhibition and instructive talk on the "gentleman's game."

There has been an intercollegiate billiard tournament every year for the past four, and it is Mr. Peterson's belief that this indoor sport is destined to become increasing popular in colleges. "There is no doubt," he wrote in his letter to Harvard, "that the game of billiards has finally taken hold among our higher institutions of learning."
