Saturday's victory over Pennsylvania was extremely gratifying, not only as victory where Harvard had first met with defeat, but as evidence of improvement in the playing of the team. The series with Yale is so rapidly drawing near that every gain by the nine is now particularly valued. The game with Pennsylvania was distinctly encouraging. Without their captain, the nine still played cooly and steadily, - a virtue which will go far towards making up for lack of brilliant play. The men are to be congratulated on their well-deserved success, and should be warmly supported in the final effort for improvement they are making. This afternoon's game with the University of Vermont is the last one scheduled before the Yale series. It will be matter of great interest to the College to see in what form the nine plays today.
