The announcement in this morning's CRIMSON that the University chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa baseball nine will meet the team of the Yale branch of the organization next Friday at New Haven is destined to be received with enthusiasm by lovers of intercollegiate sport.

When the Crimson key wearers sally out from Widener to defend the honour of the University and the Alpha of Massachusetts, a once annual custom, severed five years ago over some meet point, will be revived. In 1924 tradition has it, the game was played in the Esculapian Room of the Harvard Club of Boston, where it was called on account of darkness after nine scoreless innings. With the development of inside baseball among the Harvard erudites during the past five years, it is thought that the Crimson standard-bearers can fashion out a run before the regulation time.

The local key-wearers are contemplating an innovation this year, according to an unofficial announcement. Instead of holding the annual dinner just before the game, as formerly, this year, for obvious reasons, the hour has been changed. The final selection of speakers, who will be versed equally in the classics and the natural sciences has not yet been made, but it is hoped to secure several men of prominence to address the assembled societies. Whether or not the rival teams will engage in the customary formalities of fraternization, as has hitherto been the case, or whether the victory will be celebrated in Cambridge is a matter of conjecture.

If the difficulty in securing gloves reported by the erudites is remedied before the impending clash, the millennium of good sportsmanship, comparable only to that of the Crimson-Lampoon classic is assured.
