To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
The number of candidates for this year's Freshman nine is astonishingly small. This is true of both battery and fielding squads. The practice this week has brought out the fact that the material is not at all above the Freshman average, and unless more interest is shown by 1911 in baseball than at present, it will be difficult to develop a winning Freshman nine. Whether or not a class is to be called a "good" class depends to a certain extent upon its record in athletics in its Freshman year. 1911 has lost the football, but won the relay. Now a great effort should be made towards developing a successful nine--one which will defeat Yale. Every Freshman who has any baseball ability should report at the Cage for practice. A. L. CASTLE.
