CRUSADERS TO OPPOSE NINE

Holy Cross Seeks Third Win Over Stahlmen Here

Another fine Holy Cross baseball team comes to Soldiers Field tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock to meet Floyd Stahl's Harvard nine in the second of two scheduled encounters between the two squads. The first game, booked at Worcester on May 24, was cancelled because of rain.

The Crusaders, victorious in 10 out of 14 tilts, would like nothing better than their third consecutive win over the Crimson in two years and have nominated their mound ace, George "Pinky" Woods, for hurling duty. His opponent will be Sophomore Bud Waldstein, whose southpaw slants baffled Columbia last Saturday.

Keyes, Whittemore Hurt

Coach Stahl has expressed doubt as to the makeup of the Harvard nine starting in tomorrow's game, indicating that Fred Keyes and Gil Whittemore may not yet be ready for service. Injuries kept this veteran left side of the infield out of the Columbia game, and Art Scully and Jay Gleason may have to fill in for them again. Stahl might also juggle his outfield around in order to make room for either Bill Barnes or Burgy Ayres. Harvard's hitting is still not satisfactory, and any switches which would insert a bit more punch into the lineup are desirable.

Three one-run defeats and one tie are all that mar the record of Coach Jack Barry's visiting Purple outfit. Holy Cross holds victories over Brown and Dartmouth, both of whom dumped the Crimson this spring. Two of the setbacks, administered by Yale and Amherst, were early season affairs. They also lost to the Red Sox by a 9 to 4 count on April 14.
