Before the next publication of the CRIMSON, three athletic events of paramount interest to Harvard will take place. The second Yale baseball game occurs tomorrow, the races at New London a week later and the track meet between the English and American teams in the middle of July.
The situation in baseball is clear. On Tuesday the University team's game against Yale was in every way the equal of its best performance of the season. Although past experience with Yale has taught Harvard that "he who laughs last, laughs best", the ability of the University team to hit consistently, and its mastery of the fine points of baseball give grounds for the hope that this year a third game will not be necessary.
For over a week the crews have been at Red Top receiving the finishing touches at the hands of Coach Wray. For several years the touches which he has administered have been, to outside observers at least, surprisingly radical. Year before last Cutler replaced Sargent at stroke within two weeks of the final race, and this year Newton has changed seats with Goodale. The changes have proved to be so successful in the past, that now whatever meets with the approval of Coach Wray claims the complete confidence of Harvard supporters.
The international track meet can not fail to be successful. From the available data it is almost impossible to make any adequate comparison of the opposing teams. But whatever the result, this meet offers abundant proof that, although keen rivals at home. Harvard and Yale are at bottom thoroughly united by the same interests.
