A meeting of candidates for the cricket eleven has been called for this afternoon. If a sufficient number of men respond there is every prospect that Harvard will make an unusually strong showing in cricket this year. In former years the sport has been heavily handicapped by the lack of suitable grounds, but this spring the eleven will probably have Jarvis field, or some other college field for practice. The use of these grounds will bring cricket before the college more prominently than ever before; and additional interest will be given by the match with Yale which it is hoped to arrange. The game is not difficult to learn, and no one should be deterred from becoming a candidate for the eleven on account of inexperience. A quick eye and a cool head are the chief requisites; the rest can be acquired by practice. Harvard's showing last year was better than that of the year before. To keep up the improvement an excellent team chosen from a large number of candidates will be necessary.
