Defeated Yale in Eight Out of Nine Matches.--1918 Lost in Contest at New Haven.

The University Tennis team showed its real strength by defeating Yale, 8 matches to 1 on the courts of the Longwood Cricket Club on Saturday. As both teams had lost to Cornell and Princeton, a closer match had been expected. The University players exhibited fine form, however, and the only match which counted for Yale was won by M. Burnham over L. Curtis, 2d, '16.

The hardest battles were in the doubles all of which went to three sets. Williams and Caner lost their first set to Stoddart and Cunningham, 4 to 6, but then steadied down and took the next two sets by the same score.
