In addition to rowing, baseball, foot-
ball, track athletics and other outdoor
sports, intercollegiate rivalry soon
may be extended to the polo field. Re-
cent action at several Eastern uni-
versities indicates the adoption of
polo 'as an intercollegiate sport. Cor-
nell already has organized a squad
'and is preparing to mount it; ,Ya'ie
is seeking a stable' 'of polo ponies;
prospective Harvard players are tak-
ing lessons in horsemanship and.
Princeton is expected to Join in, while
'at West Point the game has always
been popular among the cadets.
The movement for intercollegiate
polo grows out of the war depart-
ment's recent endorsement of the
sport. Objection to the game previ-
ously has been largely one of expense,
and this is obviated by the depart-
11ent's offer to furnish mounts and
equipment where playing fields and
stable facilities are available. As
Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Cor-
