RIFLE Although only five former team members returned in the fall of 1941, and the government withdrew ammunition grants for the rest of the war, the rifle team defeated Yale for the first time in three years. Close guarding of stocks and H. A. A. collection of dues solved the cartridge trouble. But only with extreme difficulty, and with the assistance of two recruits, Townsend and Gill, was a full team kept in the field. Up to ten men per team fire in New England League matches, but luckily for Harvard only five scores count. First rate shooting, therefore, from Shaul, Davis, Powell, and Rowe, hold-overs from last year ' s varsity, and Alan Shaw, a remarkable sophomore, with the occasional assist- ance of some of the Club ' s dead-eyed Freshmen, proved all that was necessary to stay in the running for the league lead. Besides the Yale win, the team won fourth place out of 16 in the postal schedule of the New England League and fourth out of 14 in its shoulder to shoulder match at New London. With but one exception, every collegiate team in New England, including Coast Guard, Vermont, and New Hampshire, at some time during the season fell before Har- vard ' s marksmen.

SOCCER Fourth Row: G. W. Mallory, E. T. Drake, J. L. Clarke, A. M. Sachs, W. V. G. Matthews, D. W. Slingerland, W. S. Bucther, H. G. Killam Third Row: James MacDonald, Coach; W. L. Truscott, J. D.

Berman Captain Penson stops one in the net The soccer team piled a record of five wins and one tie to finish fifth in the Intercollegiate League in its first year under Coach James MacDonald. Captain Jack Penson was the standout of the season with his goal-tending. His four shut-outs were climaxed by the 5 — win over the previously undefeated Brown team in the next to last game of the season. Sawhill and Herskovits were the offensive stars, scoring six goals each during the year. Sawhill started the season with a bang, tallying three goals in the opening 6 — victory over Tufts, two in the 6 — 1 Clark win, and a lone counter in the 1 — 1 Springfield tie. Herskovits netted the ball twice in the Tufts and Clark encounters and once in the victories eked out over Army, 1—0, and M. I. T., 2—0. The only losses of the season were to Dartmouth, 2 — 0, Princeton, 2 — 1, and Yale in the final encounter, 2—1. Gifford scored early in the Eli game and the Crimson held its lead for two periods. In the third stanza after Penson had been forced to leave the game with an injury, Yale tied the game up and took the heart- breaker in the final minutes. Captain Jack Penson, Monroe Herskovits, and Captain- elect Jack Gifford were rewarded for their fine playing of the season by being placed on rhe All-Eastern Soccer team of the Intercollegiate Soccer Association. i n

SKI Second Row: R. Wilson, M. McNair, Manager; H. Bigelow, L. Burton, D. Reid Front Row: F. King, F. Ferner, Captain; A. Ames, T. Winship In the down Ml Captain Ferner After a slow start this year ' s ski team gathered mo- mentum each week to match the best in the east. Coaching themselves after popular Coach Halsey joined the service, financing all their activities, training without nearby facilities and often without snow, the team compiled the best Harvard record of recent years. Much credit must go to Finn Ferner, the team s Norwegian leader, and to the spirit of the entire squad. The four-event team met its first test at the Williams Carnival, scoring third in the downhill, and fourth in the jumping. At the Dartmouth Carnival the team landed in sixth, in spite of Ferner ' s bri liant tie for first in the downhill. Two weeks later the team took fourth in the Intertollegiates at Middlebury against ten top eastern teams. At the Eastern Team Championships run by the Hockebirgn Ski Club, Harvard took second in the downhill and third in the slalom, and the next week in the Appalachian Mountain Club race, Harvard ran second only to Dartmouth. Ferner beat Bob rV. ' eservey, eastern champion, in his second run and tied him for first in total time. The high point of the downhill season was the Harvard victory in the Schussverein against Dart- mouth and New Hampshire. { }
