7th Anglo-American intercollegiate cable match
Compiled by MissScarlett
--*--

This seventh annual university cable match took place on 23rd March. The American team (limited to students from Columbia, Harvard, Yale and Princeton) was:

J.R. Capablanca - Columbia; Q. Brackett - Harvard; L.J. Woolf - Columbia; J.L. Clark - Harvard; E.B. Burgess - Yale; H. Blumberg - Columbia

The English team (from Oxford and Cambridge):

H.J. Rose - Balliol, Oxford; W.R. Greenhalgh - Pembroke, Oxford; L. Illingworth - Trinity, Cambridge; N.J. Roughton - New College, Oxford; J.R. Hanning - New College, Oxford; W. Humphries - Christ, Cambridge

The respective venues were the Rice CC in the Cafe Boulevard in New York, and the Metropolitan CC in London. The result was a 3-3 tie, meaning the English team retained possession of the Isaac L. Rice trophy, held since their victory in 1903; the overall tally now being three wins for Britain, one for America, and three draws.
