Harvard sohool Is tho winner ot tho bnsehall

cldod. Harvard won six gatnos and wax not
once defeated. Cutlsr scliool was second In
the rnco. with four victories and two defeats.
Dwlght and Berkeley schools woro tied for
third place, with live dofcats and but ono vic

customary, a silver cup will go to thu victors.

Tho Harvard schoolboys nro not yet through
talking about their successes In track nth
letlcs. During the season just olosed. thoy
won tho following championships: Berkeley
games nt Twenty-second Boglmont Armory
on Feb. 27. Drlsler gamos nt Twenty-second
Regiment Armory on April II. West End games
at Twenty-second lloglmont Armory on April
23, Cutler gnoies at Manhattan Flold, Jiny'i.
and the greatest of nil tlio Interaenolnstlo
games nt Borkoley Oval. Nay 23. For win
ning tho chamiilonshlp nt tho intorscholastio
games Harvard received only a banner, whllo
the real object of competition was a sllvor
cup. This cup. however, according to tho
deed of gift, could only be won by Berkeley,
Cutler. Columbia Grammar. Dwlght. and Hal
soy sohools. In the games Berkeley was a
poor second, but the cadets reoelved the cup
just tho same. At tho next Intorscholastio
games tho cup will have been contested for
ton successive ye irs. Cutler has won it four
times nnd Berkeley three.
If Berkeley ins the cup next year, there
will be utl which will tako another year to
decide. All this tlmo tho other schools In tho
cltr will not huvo a woid to ear retrnrding tho
actions of the I. S. A. A. If another school
than theio two should win thecup.then.hr
an agreoment which has boon mado. Cutler
will get tho cud to keep for good. But there is
no reason why all the city schools should not
bo admitted ns mombors ot the association
next year with full power to send delegates to
the mooting. Then, with a largo member
ship, the association might purchase another
cup and the ola cup could still bo competed
for as a side lssuo.
