Second Team Mounted
cavalry unit deserves his share for the Wildcats achievements in the “sport of kings”. Untiring effort on his part and cooperation and the development of team work by the squad have developed a polo team at Arizona “U” second to none in the nation.
Captain Ncilson Brown will complete his collegiate career this year as a three letter veteran. His genial disposition and steadying effect on the other members of the team when the going became “tough” characterized his play throughout the year. Hathaway, a returning Icttcrman bore the brunt of the Cat’s scoring thrust and was undoubtably one of the hardest riding men on the squad. James Curtis, up from the Frosh, shared the with Hathaway the scoring offense, accuracy and horsemanship were his special fortes. Jack Budlong, who rode at the No. 3 post, shared with Captain Brown the defensive duties of the team, and his shots could be relied upon for distance and accuracy. Xeilson

First Team Mounted
Cavalry quartet once. And a final grandioloquent gesture for the season that carried them as far northwest as Palo Alto, California, where they defeated the Standforditcs, and the Trojans, and Riviera clubmen in Los Angeles.
The Arizona first string this season that has emulated the achievements of Arizona’s four horsemen, Dritt, Wilson, Smith, and Brown, who galloped the greenswards of the nation to renown, listed Gregory Hathaway at the No. 1 position, James Curtis at No. 2, Jack Budlong at No. 3, and Captain Neilson Brown at back. George Evans and George Judson have consistently participated as first string recruits and have coordinated well into the team’s performances. Boyd Branson and George Marston complete the second string lineup.
Lt. Col. Arthur Holdcrness, stationed at the university as head of the R. O. T. C.

Brown at back bore the burden of the defense and while not in a position to score very often, fed the ball to the other man, rallied flagging spirts and kept the men in that “fighting spirit”.
It is in polo that Arizona has achieved her greatest sporting glory, in colorful unison her spangles of cardinal red and Navy blue have flashed on the polo fields of the west. In victory or defeat her horsemen have never failed to fight and have won the right to that undying epithet that characterizes the athletes of the world—“sportsmanship”.
Arizona can well be proud of her polo team of 1934-’35 and hope for another such quartet of fine men as these to carry on in the polo of the future.
