The game with Yale on June 21st will probably be a very decisive game with both nines. Provided Yale and Harvard win all the remaining games, Yale at that time will have nine games won and one lost, Harvard eight games won two lost.

Harvard, by losing one of her Dartmouth games, will be "tied" with Amherst for second place, provided Amherst loses but one game. There are numerous combinations in all of which the game on June 21st will prove a deciding game.
