The MIT squash team has never engineered a victory over the Crimson and this year was no exception. Despite the absence of two regular starters, Harvard's racquetmen blasted MIT 8-1 last night in Hemenway.

John Havens, playing number one instead of Mike Desaulniers, emerged from his recent slump to squeeze past Yusuf Maniya, 15-10, 15-9, 10-15, 12-25, and 15-13.

In the sixth slot, Chuck Elliott sent Armando Garza-Sada home to slide rules and calculators early as he won the lop-sided match, 15-5, 15-7, and 15-8.

"Besides," he added, "it's the Yale match.
