Crimson Absolutely Crushes Inept 'Poon!

Overcoming almost insurmountable odds, the CRIMSON's baseball and rowing forces swept to tense, thrilling upset victories over the Lampoon Saturday.

Starting with a furious 52 at the Larz Anderson Bridge, the Journalists' shell kept up a steady 15 under the Weeks footbridge, while the 'Poonsters clung tenaciously to a six length lead. The "humorists" stayed ahead right up to the Western Avenue finish line, at which point the CRIMSON upped the beat to 64 and swept past to win by 23 lengths over the abbreviated two-mile course in the time of 23:2.

The baseball game provided an equally crowd-pleasing finish. The 'Poon grabbed a pair of runs in the top of the first and held the CRIMSON scoreless and hitless for eight and two thirds innings.

With two out in the last of the ninth, the underdog newsmen suddenly solved the offerings of 'Poonster hurler Bugless Dunce. Five walks, three hit batsmen, and 15 infield errors gave the Crimeds a well earned 23 to 2 victory as the packed stands cheered lustily for almost half an hour.
