Harvard May Soon Produce Big Leaguers

BOSTON, Mas.— The world-famed Harvard accent be adding an Ivy league touch to the National League soon, judging by the present rate of exposure. Harvard opened a new hockey rink a year ago, and last winter the Boston Bruins practiced there several times, once participating in a scrimmage with the Harvard squad. This season the Bruins have been joined as users of the rink by the Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Black Hawks, both teams practicing there during stopovers here.

Killing Penalties Is Killing Maple Leafs’ Penalty Killers

TORONTO, Ont.— No one needs to tell the Toronto Maple Leafs that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound—or even 16 tons—of cure. The trouble is that Leafs can’t muster even an ounce of prevention and they are overworking the cure to the point that have developed a virtual immunity to it. In what almost appears to be a concerted effort to capture the NHL penalty title again this year, Leafs have left their penalty killers burning at the stake.
