Yale reminded Princeton and Harvard that she was the champion eleven, which was promptly acknowledged by Harvard, with the addition that she might consider herself the champion eleven of the world. The Yale delegates had a private talk together, while Harvard and Princeton settled upon the date of their game, Saturday, November 16, in Boston. Yale again came forward and wished to discuss the relative merits of fifteens and elevens. Views and arguments were exchanged, and Yale wrote down our reasons for preferring fifteen men to eleven, and agreed to present them to the College. We absolutely refused to play with less than fifteen, and until the matter has been settled in New Haven, no thoughts of a game will be entertained. The meeting then adjourned. Mr. Terry, of Amherst, was in Springfield to make arrangements for a game. The 9th of November was mentioned as the date, and Boston the place for the game. Amherst will play fifteen men, and four touch-downs equal a goal.
ON Saturday the University played and defeated a Picked Nine by a score of 5 vs. 2. Such excellent players as Thayer, Tyng, and Sawyer, as well as Rollins and Ferris of the Beacons, played on the Picked Nine. Ernst pitched for the University. Base hits, Harvard 7, Picked Nine 6. Errors, Harvard 9, Picked Nine 8.
