The high point of the winter track season comes today at New Haven,when the first indoor dual meet between Harvard and the Yale will take place. The Eli trackmen are pre-game favorites, but crimson Coach Jaako Mikkola says that the team is very determined and that he is confident of victory.

As usual Crimson strength is centered is the field events, with John Bunker and Bob Partlow in the high jump and Mitchell Ford in the pole vault as the outstanding contenders. But the Mikkolamen are also strong in the hurdles, with Captain Don Donahue and Roger Schafer, and in the dash with Doug Pirnie and Charlie Smith.

Yale's stars will be more evenly divided among the events. Bob Owen is the leading contender in the dash, Dick Osborne in the hurdles, and Art Madden in the mile relay. The Eli two-mile team is particularly strong with Jom Ord, Malcolm Main, and three star sophomores in provide the opposition.
