Fortress Monroe, Va., April 8. Hampton
and Old Point Comfort today presented 'a
scene of festivity. Every thoroughfare
was filled with collegians and fair enthu
siasts whose floating ribbons manifested
their Georgetown or Eli affiliation, and
the additional presence of Uncle Sam's
blue jackets made the day a gala one.
Georgetown and Vale met in a struggle
'that was perhaps the greatest college base
ball event of the season, and the outcome
was disatrous for Georgetown.
The boys in the pretty uniforms of blue
and gray lost to the solid blue on errors.
Georgetown hit the ball hard and timely,
as they usually do. but the error summary
mutely tells the tale of their defeat.
MAUONEY IN HAD FORM.
Before the game was far advanced it was
evident that Mahoney was not, pitching
his usual game, being unable to stand the
tremendous strain of working against
two teams like Princeton and Yale on suc
Ioth teams achieved the honor of making
seventeen safe hits off such twirlers ae
Trudcau and Mahoney.
Yale stored in their first inning on a base
on balls a steal, an error, and a hit by
Georgetown was blanked in their hair.
Vale scored five runs in the second on
four hits, an error, and a base on balls.
Eli tallied five more in the sixth on four
hits and three errors.
GEORGETOWN PULLS EVEN.
Georgetown tied the score in their half
or the fifth when they added five ruus
to the two earned in the second. The
inning closed with the score standing, Tale,
7; Georgetown, 7.
But the hope or victory was shortlived,
tale gradually pulled ahead on their hits
and Georgetown's errors until the Hrst hair
or the ninth when the score stood 16 to 0.
Georgetown made a game struggle to win
out at their last chance at bat.
After Tracy had struck out in the ninth,
Maloney singled and Harley drove a. double
to right. McCarthy drew a base on balls
and Maloney, Harley and McCarthy scored
on McLaughlin's pretty three base hit. This
closed the run getting.
KEARDO.VS NEAT DOUBLE.
One of the prettiest fen aires of thegame
was n double play on a clever pick up of a
Twombley's hard-hlt-grounder by Reardon,
who threw to Fleming, cutting Bartlett
our at second aud the runner was speedily
retired at first.

is not only refined, but classical, and as

Ed Cartwright led all the first basemen
