The cricket team has made, in its defeat of Haverford, an excellent start for the championship. Captain Garrett and his men are to be congratulated for their steady work throughout the season as exemplified in their play on Saturday. With a rather discouragingly small array of candidates at the beginning of the season, the captain has succeeded in building up a strong team. In its championship game against Pennsylvania and in the game with Yale next Saturday, the team may expect far more formidable opponents than in the contest with Haverford. A proportionate improvement in the play of Harvard is necessary. We look for it to be made during the few days yet to come before the game at New Haven.
