A seven-year winning streak against the Alumni was broken Saturday night when Charlie Hutter, scoring almost a third of his team's points, led the alumni to a 34 to 32 victory over Hal Ulen's Varsity tankmen.

It was Hutter, Hutter, Hutter all the way, as the greatest of Harvard swimmers, now nearly three years out of intercollegiate competition, took first place in the 50 and 100 yard free style for a total of 10 points and swam the 50 in 24.0 seconds, a great time in any meet.
