Crimson to Face Brown Six Here

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The varsity sextet and Brown will commemorate the first intercollegiate hockey game played in the United States with ceremonies tonight preceding the Crimson's first official appearance this season at Watson Rink.

Coach Cooney Weiland's revised team is a definite favorite against the inexperienced Bruins who will seek an Ivy upset following their 7 to 0 loss to the Crimson last Saturday.

These two colleges first introduced the sport to American schools in 1898 at Franklin Park when Brown shut out the varsity, 6 to 0, on outdoor ice. The president of the Brown Club of Boston will unveil a plaque recording this event in a short ceremony preceding tonight's match.

Although the varsity was the victim of a great let-down in its game against Northeastern on Tuesday and trailed the underdogs for two periods before winning, 5 to 3, Weiland said the team should regain its old form for tonight's game.

Unless the varsity can regain the power with which it crushed Brown last weekend, the match could go either way. But a Bruin win would depend heavily on the play of highly-rated Brown goalie Harry Batchelder, who made 47 saves in the game on Saturday
