The captain of the nine is very anxious that there should be a general response to his notice calling for candidates for the second nine. The intention of Captain Winslow is to have a regularly organized second nine, such a one as we have not had within our memory, which shall be of manifest service to the university nine. This service will be performed by constantly playing games with the university nine, which will give the players as much steadiness in their respective positions as they can hope to gain without the practice of playing professional teams. Of course, the university nine will play as many games as possible with strong amateur nines, but as there are but few of this class of organizations outside of the colleges, our nine cannot get as much practice as it wants, unless a good second nine is organized.

Besides the honor of being on the second nine, there are some advantages worth mentioning. From it, of course, the substitutes for the university nine will be taken. The best batter in it will receive a prize, as we mentioned some time ago, which has been offered by the base-ball association. This will be of no little value and well worth working for. Moreover, class nines are to be organized this spring to contest for a class championship and a pennant. Men who come forward now and try for the second university nine, will be in good trim for work on these class nines when they come into the field a little later. So men working for this second nine will be helping both the university and their own class nine,-in reality, killing two birds with one stone.
