In an extraordinary hockey game at Choate last week between Yale faculty members (average age: 39) and prep school headmasters (average age: 46), the heads, pratfalls notwithstanding, outskated and outscored the Yalies 3-1. "Our success in this venture," ventured Yale President A. Whitney Griswold before the game, "depends entirely on the length of the periods." Patently, the periods were overlong. As his beaten team left the ice, Coach Griswold thanked each man, saved warmest thanks for his exhausted goalie, Dean of Freshmen H. B. Whiteman. "That man kept the score down," said Griswold. "He should have his salary raised."
Postgame Cocoa in Choate School gymnasium refurbishes Headmasters Francis St. John, Seymour St. John and Dick Day. A 1938 Yale graduate, Day suffered the game's lone injury, a cheek scratch.
Mid-Game respite on Choate bench affords Bill Saltonstall, Dick Day and Eliot Putnam Jr. a chance to encourage men on ice. These three made headmasters' goals. Assists were credited to Yale.
