ATHLETICS.

Harvard, Yale, and Princeton met in
a triangular baseball league for the first
time last June. Each of the three uni-
versities played a three-game series
agunst the others, the final contest in
each case being held in New York. The
University won the championship easily*

taking the entire series from Princeton
and two out of three games from Yale.
Yale finished with three victories and
three defeats, while Princeton won only
one game, the first against Yale.

In spite of several injuries and the loss
of both captain and coach during the
course of the season, the University
team reached the Princeton series in
good fitting condition. The first game,
after being twice postponed on account
of rain, went to Harvard in the tenth
inning at Princeton. Loose fielding by
the home players at crucial times and
good hitting by the University were re*
sponsible for the victory. In the second
game, played "at Cambridge, Mahan
held the visitors to four scattered hits
and shut them out, 8 to 0. Deyo, the
Princeton pitcher, was also in good form,
but his team mates spoiled his chances of
winning by errors at critical moments.
The third victory over the Tigers was
more of a batting bee, the score being
8 to 8. Whitney, who does his best work
in cold weather and may have been
handicapped by the heat, was hit freely,
and was replaced by Mahan in the sixth.
Harvard made 1 1 hits. Fry e leading with
8 safeties out of 8 times at bat.

The tradition that Harvard always
loses the Class Day game at New Haven
was given a jolt when the University
players, with Mahan in the box, won the
opening contest of the Yale series by the
score of 4 to 2. Most of the scoring was
done in the two opening innings, Yale
getting both of its runs in the first, and
Harvard making one in the first and two
in the second.

A spectacular ninth-inning victory in
the second game of the series clinched
the championship for the University
team. Yale piled up an apparently safe
margin in the second inning when, with
Vaughn on first. Bush drove the ball
into the left field crowd, which under



the ground rules of the day counted as a
home run. At the start of the last half
of the ninth, Yale still led by a score of
2 to 1. Gannett, the first batter up, went
out. Harte followed with a base on balls.
Hardwick flied out, leaving the game to
be settled by Brickley, the next batter,
and Watrous, who had so far been hold-
ing Harvard well in hand. Brickley hit
the first ball pitched for a double to
right-centre, driving in Harte with the
tying run. Then Frye, who had been
out of the game with a spruned ankle,
batting for Reed, singled to left field,
bringing Brickley home with the victory.

The final game in Brooklyn brought
out a defect in the new triangular agree-
ment. With victory in both the Yale
series and the triangular league already
assured, the Harvard team played care-
lessly and allowed Yale to win by the
overwhelming score of 18 to 0. The Uni-
versity got only 3 hits off Way, and these
came in the first two innings. The agree-
ment with Yale and Princeton required
that the third game be played, so that
the championship could be decided on a
percentage basis. In the case of the
Princeton series, which comes early in
June, this is doubtless necessary. In the
future, however, a provision should be
made allowing for the cancellation of the
third Yale game if it has no bearing on
the title. An event such as that of June
86, when there was nothing at stake in
the game, and when one team was not
putting up its best fight, savors of pro-
fessionalism and poor sportsmanship.

The recent Yale games leave the stand-
ing of the two universities in contests
against each other since 1868 as follows:
Harvard has won 25 series, Yale 18, and
8 have been tied. Harvard has won 63
games and Yale 67.

The following won their " H" in base-
ball for the first time this year: G. E.
Abbot, '17, of Andover; C. E. Brickley,

The sucoeas of the team was threat-
ened in the very midst of the season,
when Dr. F. J. Sexton resigned as coach
on May 18. Dr. Sexton refused to reco^
nize the ri^t which the baseball advisory
committee asserted of appointing assbt-
ant coaches for the catchers and out-
fielders. The Athletic Committee, which
holds the advisory committee respont-
flible for the direction and control of all
matters relating to the coaching and
other policies of the baseball team, ac-
cepted Dr. Sexton's proffered resigna-
tion. Percy D. Haui^ton, *99, who cap-
tained the University team in his Senior
year, directed the team throu^ the
final six weeks of the season.

The team's record for 1915 was slij^t-
ly better than for the previous year.
Harvard was beaten 7 times in 80 games»
B of these being during the month of
April. The team won both ocmtests from
Pennsylvania, and split the two-game
series with Brown. The season was par-
ticularly marked by heavy hitting, the
team batting average always hovering
in the neighborhood of .250. The pitch-
ing has been largely a one-man affair,
for Mahan has borne the brunt of all
the big games. Whitney's no-hit game
against Williams, which team had up to
then been batting .808, and his victory
in the second Yale game showed that
he is fast developing into a dependable
twirier.

Freahman BasebaU,
After winning its first 6 games, the
lOlSi baseball team struck a disastrous
slump, losing 5 out of 8 contests, one of
these to the Yale freshmen, thus spoiling
what was expected to be one of the best
of first-year records. The Freshmen
played brilliant ball at the start of the
season, several men batting around the
.400 mark, while the fielding and pitch-
ing were excellent. Loring and Hitch-
cock, the two pitchers, performed well
in the early season and deserved better
support from their team mates in the
later games. Hitchcock's best achieve-
ment was made against Worcester Acad-
emy, which he held to two hits, breaking
his opponents' string of 39 consecutive
victories. In the infield. Captain W. J.
Murray, of Natick, not only fielded his
position well, but batted .400 for the
season. The Freshmen lost to Yale 1918
largely as a result of their 8 errors.
The game was practically thrown away
in the fifth inning, when with two out
and the bases full, the Freshmen aL
lowed Yale to score 4 runs on 4 errors.

Sewnd Team BasebaU.

The University second baseball team
lost ten of its twelve scheduled games
last spring, the only victories being over
Morris Heights School, 2 to 0, and the
Brown seconds, 2 to 1, both within the
last two weeks of the season. The team
lost to the Yale seconds at New Haven
on Mi^ 28 by the score of 10 to 5. The
home team piled up a lead of 5 runs in
the second inning, and largely through
the heavy hitting of J. S. Hanes, who
had only just before been declared in-
eligible for the Yale first team, always
kept the advantage. By playing in the
game against the Yale seconds, the fol-
lowing 16 players won the " H 2nd" : O.
Ames, Jr., '17, of North Easton; R. E.
Ashley, '17, of New Bedford; W. T.
Barker, '17, of Cambridge; J. T. Beal,
2d, '17, of West Newton; M. L. Bemson,

of Newton; F. P. Coolidge, '16, of Con-
cord; W. G. Cummings, '17, of Charle*-



town; W. G. Ganitt, Jr., 17, of Brook-
fine; J. C. Harris, '17, of Brookline;
V. W. HoUy, '17, of Bozbuiy; P. B.

Iwtnk^cUegiaU BoiebaU,
By defeating Standish, 10 to 8» in the
final game of the series, the Gore Hall
team gained permanent possession of the
cup given by Odin Boberts, '86, «BiUe»
matic of the Freshman interdormitory
baseball championshq>. This was the
fourth victory of the Gore athletes over
their rivals from Smith and Standish, as
Gore had previously won the cups in
football, track, and crew. Thetrac^cup
b the only one which has been hdd by
any other dormitory. It was won last
fall by Smith, but Gore acquired it by a
victory in the spring meet.

Tlie ** Craigies," composed almost en-
tirely of Law School men, won the Leiter
cup scrub baseball series, the members
of the victorious squad being H. Beal,
E.T.S., of Aubumdale; J. E. Bennett,
2L., of Youngstown, O.; E. W. Freeman,
8L., of PUmfield, N.J.; W. Hugus, 2L.,
of Wheeling, W. Va.; E. C. Kander,

Hubbard, la.; P. C. Rodey, 8L., of
Albuquerque, N. Mex.; R. E. Scott, 8L.,
of Cambridge, O.; W. P. Seeley, 2L., of
Bridgeport, Conn.

The Crimson easily won the champion-
ship in the literary league, its local vic-
tories being over the Lampoon by the
score of 14 to 1, and over Phi Beta Kappa
by the score of 13 to 8. On Memorial
Day the Crimson came from behind in a
ninth inning rally which netted 8 runs,
and defeated the Yale News baseball
team, 15 to 8, on Soldier's Field.

With only mediocre prospects at tHe
outset, the Uniyersity track team was
highly successful in the 1915 season,
wimiiog the dual meet with Yale, finish-
ing second in the intercoUegiates, and
losing the dual meet with Cornell by
only 1 St^S points. This record is a tiib«
ute to the theory of athletics for all.
While a majority of the points, of course,
were scored by experienced favorites,
the few points that nosed out Yale both
in the dual meet and in the intercoUegi-
ates were made by Seniors who, after
conscientious "plugging** for four years,
won their *'H" for the first tune.

Harvard, 53; Yale, 51.
{New Haven, May 15.)
W. WiUcox, Jr., '17, led Wilkie, the
Yale star, all the way in the 440-yard
event, and bucking a head wind on the
long 280 back stretch, tied the intercoU
legiate record of 48 seconds. P. M. Rice,
'15, upset predictions by winning the
high hurdle race from Captain Shedden
oi Yale in the fast time of 15 S-^ seconds.
The feature of the field events was the
performance of Oler, of Yale, who won
the high jump at 6 feet, 1 inch, and made
a new dual record in the broad jump,
clearing 23 feet, 11 inches on his first
attempt. The final result of the meet
was not determined until the Sunday
evening following the contest, owing to a
question of the eligibility of W. F. Roos,
of Yale. Roos had previously competed
for two years for Columbia and two
years more for Yale, making a total of
four years of intercollegiate competition
before 1915, but because of imperfec*
tions in their records, the Yale authori-
ties did not realize that he was ineligible
for the present season. By mutual agree-
ment of the Harvard and Yale represen-
tatives, Roos was allowed to enter the
meet conditionally, and he won the shot-
put On the following day the Yale
