VARSITY SLUGGERS TO MEET PURPLE OUTFIT
Invaders Expected to Provide Tough Opposition -- Loughlin and Sline to Pitch
Continuing their onslaught on the local college outfits, the Mitchellmen will attack Holy Cross out in Worcester this afternoon at 3 o'clock. This will be the first half of a two-game series, the return engagement being at Soldiers Field on June 2. Captain Eddie Loughlin has been elected to do the honors for the Crimson in the pitcher's box, while Bill Sline will perform for the Crusaders.
Despite its 14-4 drubbing of B.U. on Wednesday the Varsity will have a tough time against the Purple. Annually Holy Cross can be depended on to turn out a good ball team, and with a victory over Yale behind then it looks as if the Crusaders this year will prove no exception. Having Loughlin on the mound, however, is a pretty strong asset for Harvard. He has shown himself one of the best ditchers in the college circuit and ought to be capable of taking care of the heavy part of the Purple batting order with only his usual handful of hits allowed.
