Swimmers Vanquish Boston YMCA by 52 to 23 in a Dull, Colorless Contest

Curwen's Times Better Hewitt Triumphs Over Van Vort In Close 440


Featured by the return of Jim Curwen to form, the Varsity swimmers overwhelmed a weak but plucky Boston Y. M. C. A. team last night by a score of 52 to 23. Curwen turned in a 24.4 50 and a 53.9 100 to register the tidiest times of the evening.

The presence of Swede Broberg two flights above the pool cut both crowd and interest at the meet to a minimum. Ed Hewitt's win over up and coming Dave "Torpedo" Van Vort in the quarter provided the evening's best race.
