Ten Takes on Yale Here Tomorrow

By Bayley F. Mason

The College's newly-crowned champion New England lacrosse team will face off at 8 p.m. tomorrow afternoon on the Business School Field against Yale, the 1950 N.E.L. champion and always a local lacrosse power. The game offer's everything to make it one of the season's finest offerings of northern lacrosse.

Both teams are undefeated in League play. Harvard, however, has already won the N.E.L. title by virtue of playing and beating seven other league teams, while the Elis have met only four. But the Crimson has no reason to rest on its laurels.

No squad member has yet played on a ten which has beaten Yale, and there is the added incentive of major letters for an undefeated season. (The spring trip three and two record is unofficial.) The Elis, on the other hand, would like to prove themselves worthy of the N.E.L. crown, even though it is beyond their grasp. Yale takes an eight and three record into tomorrow's game.

Coach Bruce Munro, however, is not concerned about titles. "We've been playing these games one at a time--Saturday our job is to beat Yale," he explained yesterday. Munro thinks his team can do the job, last done in 1947, but only if his club goes all out--something it did not do in beating New Hampshire on Wednesday. Munro added his hope that the U.N.H. game at least "should have cured us of any thoughts about invincibility."

Harvard's depth should give it the edge on the attack and midfields. Yale has lost most of last year's fine club which downed the Crimson, 12 to 9, but still offers a strong threat in goalie Dick Treadwell and a tight, "riding" defensive play. Most of Harvard's scorers are back from last year's Yale game, including defenseman Jay Byrne.

The Yardlings play the Yale freshmen on the adjoining field at 3 p.m.

HARVARD: Attack--Plissner, Yost, and Hudner (C); Midfields--Post, Waring, and Huebsch; Graham, Brooke, and Lynch; Julian, Wood, and Thayer; Defense--Byrne, Coburn, Spence or Maronl; Goal--Clark.
