It has now become such an old story to chronicle the defeat of Harvard freshman teams at New Haven, that were it not for special circumstances in connection with Saturday's game, it could be passed over without comment. In the first place, the weather and the condition of the field were such that the game should never have taken place, and secondly, the lead once so firmly established in Harvard's hands should never have been relaxed. With the score standing seven to nothing up to the fifth inning. any attempts to explain the loss of the game satisfactorily cannot but be ignored. Some of the errors may have been excusable, owing to the slipperiness of the ball, but the freshmen might at least have been expected to do as well as their opponents, as the conditions were equally unfavorable to each side. Once more Yale wins the fence, and Harvard smarts under a defeat for which there can be no palliation.
