He is now with the War Department in Washington, holding the rank of Second Lieutenant, which he earned in the ROTC. Kenneth L.

From the same class comes F. Austin Harding, prominent football halfback, captain of hockey, and one of the best hockey centers Harvard has had in recent years. A teammate of Harding's in football who showed prominently all season as center, was Henry E. Russell, who is also in the Navy.
