The Syracuse University soccer and cross country teams both swing into action tomorrow as part of "Colgate Day" on the Hill. This is the final contest for the soccerites, and the last duel meet before the intercollegiates for the harriers.

The Syracuse soccer team, playing its last game of the season, will line up against the Harvard booters. This should be an interesting contest as the teams are both in fine condition and anxious for a victory to place their season's standing up a little higher.

The Harvard team has had a fairly successful season so far, having won five, lost three, and tied one of the contests in which they have participated. One of the games lost was with Dartmouth by a score of 2-0. The Orange beat Dartmouth 3-1 in their first collegiate game of the year. This is the only team which both aggregations have faced this season and is about the only criterion upon which the respective merits of the two can be judged on paper. It is safe to say, however, that the contest will be far from one-sided, and can be expected to be a close battle.

The Harvard lineup will be as follows: Goal, Faude; fullbacks, Kerness and Stollmeyer; halfbacks, Rudd, Carter and Bland; forward line, Grover, Carrigan, Bodde, Vogel and Tatham. Most of these men stack up heavier than the Hill boys and a wet field would give them some advantage. Coach Horrocks believes that his men can win if they get a dry field to play on.

The Syracuse team will go on the field as follows: Goal, Simmons; fullbacks, Eaton and Jones; halfbacks, Pierce, Tarnower and Hughes; forward line, Van Nostrand, Kronieck, Warren, Montalvo and Shantz. After the game the Orange will elect a captain for the next year to succeed Bob Hughes, this year's leader. This will probably result in the acclusion of "[illegible]" Van Nostrand who has been playing a bang-up game all season and would make and excellent field leader.
