Netmen Oppose Yale Squad

Tune Up for Columbia Match

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard's racquetmen get right into the soft part of their schedule today with a match with weak Yale in Cambridge. The Elis, dumped recently by Brown and not a powerful squad, should not present much of a challenge to the Crimson.

So far this season Harvard has shown itself to be a fairly balanced squad, without any real superstar since Harris Masterson left, but having a lot of depth and endurance.

Today the Crimson will get a chance to check some more on its depth, as it plays ten sets of singles and five of doubles against Yale. As usual, six singles and three doubles will count for the Ivy standings.

Coach Jack Barnaby has been working hard on finding the optimum doubles arrangement over the last few weeks, and has juggled the singles lineup as well, moving Gary Reiner into the number one spot.

Reiner won the number one position for the Crimson yesterday, downing Ken Lindner in an intra-squad challenge match.

With Reiner on top and Lindner at two the rest of the lineup shapes up this way: John Ingard at three, Tom Loring at four and Randy Barnett at five unless his blistered hand forces him to drop.

If that happens everyone on the ladder will move up one, but in the meantime, it's Chip Baird at six, Gardy Rowbotham at seven, Sandy Wilson at eight, Hugh Hyde at nine and Charlies Krusen in the ten spot.

The Doubles

Barnett and Loring will team up for the top doubles spot with Lindner and Rowbotham playing at two. Reiner and Ingard, Baird and Hyde, and Wilson and Krusen make up the three, four and five pairs.

If, as is expected, Harvard takes a commanding lead during the singles matches, Barnaby may take the opportunity to play around a little more with his doubles pairings. So don't be surprised by last minute changes.

About the only tough opposition the Crimson will face for a while comes in over a week at Columbia. Until then Harvard plays some second-rate squads that aren't going to help in preparing for the Lions.
