INTER-COLLEGIATE BASE-BALL ASSOCIATION.

The Inter-collegiate Base-ball Association met at the Massasoit House, Springfield, Friday, March 14, the colleges being represented as follows: Amherst, G. W. Wadsworth, W. F. Wilcox, E. P. Harris; Brown, N. S. Dike, G. M. Wadsworth, A. T. Wall; Harvard, L. V. LeMoyne, Adams Crocker; Princeton, C. S. Clark, A. Moffat; Yale, H. C. Hopkins, W. C. Camp, N. G. Williams, Jr. The convention was called to order by vice-president Crocker, and the following officers were elected: President, Adams Crocker, of Harvard; first vice-president, N. G. Williams, of Yale; second vice-president, N. S. Dike, of Brown; secretary and treasurer, G. W. Wadsworth, of Amherst. Messrs. A. G. Spaulding Brothers of Chicago, Wright and Ditson of Boston, and A. J. Reach of Philadelphia, offered bids for furnishing the official balls for next season. The matter was referred to the judiciary committee which reported in favor of the Wright and Ditson ball. Messrs. Wright and Ditson were also authorized to publish the college baseball records and rules. Applications for membership were then received, and delegates from Dartmouth and St. John's College, Fordham, N. Y., appeared before the convention. The application of St. John's College was rejected, but arrangements were made with Dartmouth by which they will play all their games with Harvard, Yale and Princeton, on the grounds of those clubs, therefore Dartmouth was reinstated, and N. A. McClary, A. E. Nutt, and G. O. Nettleton, were admitted as delegates of that college. In the afternoon the constitution was discussed. Article 8, relating to umpires, was stricken out, and it was decided to appoint a corp of three umpires, with one reserve, at a salary to be decided upon hereafter by the judiciary committee. No changes were made in the playing rules, the "six ball" rule failing to pass. The schedule, as adopted, is as follows:
