Apropos of the nine, would it not be a good scheme for the base ball management to arrange a series of games between the various scrub nines which are now beginning practice, and to offer cups as prizes to the members of the winning team? This was done last year and we see no reason why the arrangement should not be repeated. Perhaps a series of games for a scrub championship will not develop any very valuable material for the present or for future 'varsity nines, but it will serve to keep alive that healthy interest in base ball throughout the student body upon which the success of future 'varsities must ultimately in no small measure depend.
