In college athletics, as in other fields of activity, it is usually the unexpected that happens. The almost complete reversal of the preliminary "dope" in the University's contests on Saturday is a striking example. Conceded more than a fair chance to defeat the Princeton track team, the University athletes out-did themselves only to find new records set up by their inspired opponents. The baseball team, regarded with some apparent reason as inferior to a surpassingly successful Princeton nine, had everything its own way.
Somewhat inured, this winter, to comparative athletic misfortune, the University may well accept Saturday's results as on the whole auspicious, and in themselves worthy of celebration. The great effort of the baseball men was not the only bright spot. The victories of the freshmen, of the tennis team, and of the light crews rounded out a day as nearly perfect as four triumphs over Princeton, and only one defeat could make it.
