HARVARD VS. YALE 10 TIMES

These traditional rivals have de-emphasized football but now play more than ever as their intramural programs contribute to a day of ten games

Old Yalies and Harvards who can remember when their schools supplied Walter Camp with most of his All-America material sometimes lament their decline from gridiron glory, and the fact that de-emphasis at both schools seems here to stay.

Nonetheless, under de-emphasis, Yale and Harvard now have more football than ever. Both have thriving intramural programs. Coached by graduate students who were once varsity players, the intramural squads play all fall, using equipment supplied by the athletic departments.

To cap the 1954 season the two schools met at Cambridge for ten games of football the day before the traditional big game. Eight Harvard house squads played eight Yale colleges and the frosh and J.V. teams met also. When the last whistle had blown more than 500 students could boast of defending the honor of alma mater.

Equipment manager Jim Farrell of Harvard stands beside 600 towels ready for use by the players. There were an additional 300 towels out on the playing fields.
