VARSITY HOCKEY TEAM THROUGH '35 PRACTICE

DEFENSE WILL HAVE TO CARRY ON THROUGH ENTIRE GAME

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard's hockey team has given up practice for this season and will only spend a couple of hours skating around in the Garden this afternoon. Stubbs has decided that he can do nothing more for the team and is sure that Harvard will take the series if the team will play as well as at New Haven.

The great trouble will be with defense men. Watts played the whole sixty minutes last Saturday and Brown only went out for three minutes while Claflin took his place. Claflin played a good game against the Blue jayvees and is a good substitute for the points. Jim Roberts, another ex-jayvees player, will also be available if anything should happen to the others. Dick Dow is definitely out of the game with his month-old injury.

This defense, however, threw the Yale attack off balance even though the Elis are faster skaters. It was helped a great deal by Hovenanian, Moseley, and Ford, who have a happy faculty of being able to poke the puck out from under the Blue sticks.

It was a new form of attack-defense which Stubbs devised to make up for his deficiency before the net. The center goes down into the Yale defense zone to harry the attackers before they cross the blue line. If the attack passes this man the wings sweep in before the puck gets past the center of the ice and finishes the job.

Moseley will start the game with Duffey and Sam Callaway on the wings. The lines are in a ridiculously efficient state. It has been a long time since any team could put five sets of wings on the ice and not suffer any great decrease in quality.
