Recovered from its recent attack of too much Holy Cross, Captain Dick Maguire's Crimson Varsity takes on Brown at Soldiers Field this afternoon in the return engagement of a two-game series.
In the first game, played at Providence on May 30, Bill Lincoln hitched up with Ambrose Murray in a twirling duel and emerged with a three hit shutout as his mates collected a trio of tallies on six safe blows off the Bruin hurler.
This afternoon Murray will again take the mound, while Coach Fred Mitchell will be forced to save Lincoln for tomorrow's game with Princeton. Dick Walsh, Sophomore pitcher, will probably start for the Crimson.
The rest of the lineup will remain unchanged from that of Saturday except that George Tittmann, newly-discovered hitting find, will change places with Braman Gibbs and bat fourth instead of fifth.
Against Princeton tomorrow Harvard attempts to solidify its second place league position and to settle favorably the replay of the game which was won here by the home team on April 29.
On that occasion three Crimson runs and with them the margin of victory were protested by the Tigers on the basis of a misinterpretation of the ground rules by the umpire.
