Cricket Cup.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Intercollegiate Cricket Cup, won by Harvard last year, has recently been sent up from Haverford and is now on exhibition in the CRIMSON window for a few days before being placed in the trophy room. The cup was presented in 1881 by a number of graduates of the University of Pennsylvania to be competed for annually by "undergraduate elevens of the Intercollegiate Cricket Association." Columbia was then a member but has since dropped out, leaving pennsylvania, Haverford and Harvard to contest for the trophy.

In 1881 there was no award of the cup. Between 1882 and 1888 it was won by Pennsylvania seven times and by Haverford once, in 1884. Then it remained unnoticed in the Pennsylvania trophy room for several years and for this reason the cup has not been marked since 1888. Harvard has won it three times, in '94, '97 and '99.
