description:

This image scanned from page 174 of the 1923 Arbutus yearbook. The caption reads, in part: "AUTO POLO: The band needed money to journey to Lafayette. It's pretty hard to get money out of students unless you have a novelty to offer them in return. Therefore, auto polo. Ernie Pyle and Bill Pierce, in Methuselah, faced Barrett Woodsmall and Joe Breeze, driving Apollo, Jr., on Jordan Field, November 18. The score stood 1-1 when the Pyle-Pierce car had to withdraw on account of engine difficulties..."
