The determination of the captain of 'varsity nine to make every effort to win is shown by the formation of the second nine. It is to be hoped that the plan will not be allowed to fall through as in previous years but will be carried out until the end of the season. There will be daily games between the nines except on days when the 'varsity has match games. Such an arrangement must prove benefical in many ways. The practice will be much better than that afforded by the games with weak amateur nines or with nines from the smaller colleges. What is most needed now is practice in batting, and this will be well provided as the second nine has an excellent battery. The plan will also furnish the substitutes a chance to play and will develop new men for the team next year. Nothing but the hardest work will enable Harvard to win this year, and every effort in the right direction will be appreciated by all interested in her athletic success.
