Ten days ago the nine seemed to be in a bad way. No improvement in its work was visible from day to day, and the large body of undergraduates felt much discouraged at the base ball outlook. Since then the work of the team has shown a most steady and gratifying improvement. Yesterday the men played as well as the college desires and expects to see them play. They showed that the belief in their ability which the college has clung to all along was not mistaken. There was unfortunately a very meagre attendance at the game. This sort of thing should not continue. The nine has done its part; the undergraduates should do theirs. The college certainly appreciates the improvement of the nine, but the only effectual way in which it can show its appreciation is by going out to the field at each game, and staying there till it is finished.
