Cheering the Eleven.
By the time that the two barges drew up in front of Leavitt & Peirce's at quarter of three the crowd had all ready begun to collect; and when the team began to take their seats, the cheers which greeted them came from a crowd that blocked the whole street. The cheering was led by Gardner Perry from the steps of one of the barges. After cheering every man on the team, "three big ones" were given for Arthur Cumnock and Perry Trafford. The substitutes, the captain of the second eleven, J. H. Sears, Cranston, Crosby and Dr. Conant were all cheered vociferously; and as the barges drove off, the crowd, led by K. Fairbank L. S., sent after them cheer after cheer for Harvard. The proceedings ended with a "motley yell" led by J. A. Wilder '93.
