On the 1 3th of February the Naval Academy was host to the team at AnnapoHs, and the next day Yale broke pool records and an Intercollegiate mark in the 50-yard pool. Mittendorf swam a beautiful 1:42.8 in his specialty, and Macionis did the 440 in 5 minutes 8 and nine-tenths seconds. The following Wednesday saw the second of the Service teams beaten 44-31 at West Point. In the fifth league meet Columbia met its first defeat of the season 51-24, and on Washington ' s birthday the Olneyville Boys ' Club of Pro idence was easily submerged 64-1 1. Penn produced a 23.4 second " 50 " . Bill Danforth hit 107.67 off the board, wh ile ersatile Johnny Macionis won the 200-yard breaststroke in 2:38.2. On Thursday March 25, a fighting team from Franklin and Marshall was beaten 48-27. In this meet a new Intercollegiate 400-yard relay record was set at 3:33.5. The old record made by Yale of 3:34 was bettered by the crack quartet of Penn, Rogers, Macionis and Cooke. At the conclusion of the 400-yard distance Moonan added the fifth leg to set a new national mark of 4:28.4 for the 500 yards and Willcox completed the record breaking by swimming the 600 yards in 5:22.4, which was also a new na- tional standard. Following the carnival on March the 2nd the Springfield team proxided the compe- tition on March the 6th for a record-breaking assault in the 60-yard pool. Ralph Penn eclipsed the 60-yard freestyle Intercollegiate record by one tenth of a second, cutting it to 28.8 seconds; while on the way to a 440-yard Macionis set a new American recor d of 4:47.5 at 400 meters, and also a new intercollegiate record of 4:48.9. In the 400-yard freestyle relay the team of Penn, Rogers, Moonan, and Cooke established intercollegiate and American records at 3:31.9. Willcox swam the 500-yard leg to hang up a new record at 4:26, and Good added the 600-yard distance to record an American Note- worthy of 5:20. The score of the meet was 57-18. A novelty on a Yale program next saw Yale trounce Rider and the New York Boy ' s Club in a triangular as well as in a separ- ately scored dual meet. Princeton, on the Wednesday preceding the Harvard meet, offered little competition as the Tigers went down 56-19, to add Victory No. 163 to the Yale string. On the 13th Yale went to Har ard, expecting a hard meet, but also expecting to win. A crack 300-yard medley gave Harvard a 5-0 lead in the first event, and Hutter won the 220-yard swim in the best time of the season, 2:10.8. Penn took the 50 with 24 seconds flat, and Harvard ' s Greenhood nipped Dan Endweiss with 1 11.03 points. Hutter again came to the fore with a great 52:00 for the 100; Cummins beat Mittendorf with a 1:39.4 backstroke; and the critical breaststroke found Yale trailing 29-24. To forestall certain defeat Macionis was placed in the 200-yard breastroke and had to place second in this event, which he did leaving a first and second in the 440 as Yale ' s only hope of victory, conceding the fact that the Elis could win the relay. Hutter again did the trick, placing second to Pete Brueckel in this race. The meet was delayed several minutes while the Cantabs let forth an unparalleled ovation for their team. The relay team took the last race, but it was an anti-climax to say the least. The score was 39-36. Suffering a severe let-down, the Yale team traveled to Minneapolis on the 26-2 7th of March, placing third behind Michigan and one point behind Ohio State. Macionis took the 1500 meters crown, and all except two men succeeded in gaining points. The trip consumed six days of the Spring acation and included two meets on the way out ā€” one in Cle eland and the other in Milwaukee. Finally the National A. A. U. championships held in the Payne Whitney gymnasi- um saw the Elis nine points behind the Lakeshore A.C. and Michigan, who had 27 and 26 points respectively. Macionis personally accounted for fi e of these points, the re- mainder coming by virtue of a third by the 400-yard relay team of Good, Moonan, Macionis, and Captain Cooke. p p jā€ž

Kiphuth Coach IX comparison with the record of the thirteen years preceding 1937, the past season looks gloomy indeed. Not since 1923 ha e Yale natators tasted defeat, and thus a single reverse is a veritable catastrophe. On March 13 this catastrophe occurred due to a great swimmer at Har ard who, irtually singlehanded, broke what was generally considered to be one of the greatest athletic records in history. Up to that time, Yale Swimming Teams had won 163 consecuti e dual meets -a truly great tribute to a great coach. This year saw the inauguration of the Eastern Intercollegiate Swimming League in which Yale placed second to Harxard. The members of this league are, Princeton, Har- ard, Dartmouth, Navy, Penn., Columbia, and Yale. The season opened on January the ninth with the Alumni meet, the Varsity taking six of the nine first places to down the graduates 50 to 16, an interscholastic order of e ents being used. Brown, Wesleyan, and Pennsyhania followed the Alumni and were subdued 41-34, 52-23, and 61-15 respectively. On the 30th of January, the team journeyed to Dartmouth and beat the Indians decisi ely 57-18. One of the season ' s out- standing examples of spirit was turned in by Captain Cooke in the 400-yard relay, when he was e en with the last Dartmouth swimmer at the 350 mark but completely missed his turn. He went back, touched the end of the pool and then when at least eight feet behind, proceeded to win by scant inches. The following Saturday, Yale took Rutgers into camp 43-32. 219

Fionl Row: Hills. Orth, Wheeler, Carter, Captain Lasell. Foss, Davidson, Raymond, Rees Second Row: Reeves, Manager Sulli an, Lewis, Hall, Blake, Keeney, Bowen, Coach Leeman, Smith THE ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL SEASON THIS year ' s soccer season was quite successful, though somewhat anticHmactical after last year ' s undefeated team won the co eted National Intercollegiate Championship. Yale won the Big Three Championship by defeating Harvard 3-0, and by tying Prince- ton 2-2. The team ' s schedule was particularly difficult, as Yale played thirteen games, five of which were away, against some of the strongest teams in the country, such as Pennsylvania, Princeton, and the Naxy. In many games the Yale hooters seemed to be dogged by a jinx, for though they outplayed their opponents, they were defeated by a one-goal margin in games with Wesleyan, Pennsyh ania State, and the Navy. At the end of the season, Yale had defeated Har ard, McGill, Massachusetts State, Connecticut State, Massachusetts Tech, Springfield, and the Bridgeport City Team, tied Princeton, and suffered defeats at the hands of Penn State, Pennsyhania, Brown, Wesleyan, and the Na -y. When the season opened, the greatest weakness appeared to be in the fullback line, but as the season progressed, this line of defense pro ed themsehes quite able. The goal was well tended by two veterans, Blake and Hall, Ernie Smith ' s playing in the fullback line staved off many attacks on the goal. Among the halfbacks, Raymond and Orth, who has since been chosen ail-American centerhalf, were outstanding. The forward line, led by Captain Lasell played a good passing game. Lasell ' s fine playing and field generalship ser ed to keep the team together, and won him a well-earned position on the Ail-American Soccer Team. Most credit for the team ' s success this year goes to Yale ' s beloved Soccer mentor, Walter Leeman. His experience as a player and his fine coaching ability have done much this year, as in the past to de elop a good team. Roger Sullivan, Manager
