HARVARD, 18; COLBY, 0

Saturday's Game a Batting Bee for Fifteen University Players.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The baseball game with Colby Saturday afternoon turned out to be a batting bee for the University team. Ex-Captain Lanigan's charges did not appear to have progressed very far in their study of the science of baseball, and the second-string pitcher used against Harvard was a very easy proposition. It simply became a question of how hard Harvard wished to work to make runs, and sufficient energy was displayed by the members of the University team to complete the circuit 18 times.

Harvard had two unfortunate innings, the third and the seventh, in which it did not score. Otherwise things moved along very nicely for everyone but the umpire. He had his hands full and was so overcome by the ease with which Harvard scored that he could not bear to see an opportunity for a tally slip by. Accordingly, after calling Coon safe at second in the fourth inning on a somewhat doubtful decision, he gave that player a safe at the plate when it seemed to many beside the Colby team that he was an easy out.

One of the most encouraging features of the game was the style in which the second string men on the squad played when they were put into the game in the fifth inning. It might be expected that with the score so much in Harvard's favor there would have been a tendency to relax a bit, but such was not the case, and not an error was made by the University team.

After Potter and Hann had each got home runs by long hits into left, the Colby representative who was delegated to do duty in that territory moved out into the dump and stayed there. He would undoubtedly be willing to second Mr. Garcelon's policy of reclaiming Soldiers Field.
