NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard spring sports get under way this week with a rush as almost all of the teams face rivals on land, on water, and in the air. Coach Jaakko Mikkola unleashes his impatient track team on Northeastern and Holy Cross in an informal meet Saturday afternoon on Soldiers Field which should serve as a good warm up for the coming arduous schedule.

The Crimson crews open the season's activity on the Charles River Basin, at the same time, facing M. I. T., Boston University, and Syracuse, with a two-boat margin expected between the men from the shadow of Lars Anderson, and the second place New York Staters. The Jayvee and 150-pound crews battle with their respective rivals from the same schools, while all but the Syracuse Freshmen figure in the Yardling competition.

Tennis Meets

After having been rained out of its two scheduled meets last week, the tennis team under the tutelage of Jack Barnaby will face the men from Miami University across the nets on Saturday. The Freshmen, after their meet with Andover tomorrow, will challenge M. I. T. over the week-end.

The golf combine, led by Ace Cordingley, will tramp the links with the Rhode Island State sextet tomorrow afternoon, while the Crimson nine will meet B.U. at Riverside. Saturday, the Stahlmen play their first Big Three game at Princeton on the Tigers' field.

Rugby Club Travels

The University Rugby Club, flushed by its win over the Boston Rugby Club and Princeton lineups, runs into the Eli Saturday at New Haven, travelling to New York to meet a skilled team from Queens on Sunday.

The lacrosse team plays with Tufts at Medford tomorrow and goes into the mountains of New Hampshire to battle the Indians on Saturday at Hanover.

The Yardling outfits are having a busy week, too, as many of the toughest duels on the card are placed in the early part of the season. Tomorrow the powerful '43 diamondmen oppose B. U. and the lacrosse ten takes to the field with the stickmen from Phillips Andover. On the week-end, the nine meets Lawrence Academy, and the cross-wielders trade blows with New Hampshire.
