On the invitation of Brown University a meeting of representatives of the leading eastern universities will soon be held in Providence to consider the various phases of sport in their relation to colleges. The conference will have no binding effect upon the universities represented, but the opinions expressed and the general conclusions reached will, it is hoped, react in favor of a uniformity of regulations governing college athletics in the East. Summer baseball is understood to be one of the questions which will be considered.
Pennsylvania, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, and probably Princeton and Yale will participate in the conference. Harvard's representatives will be appointed Monday night at the meeting of the Athletic Committee.
