Goodfellows of tho Arcade Duckpin

of three games well over the .000 mark

games, dropping the second of the three
scheduled battles.
Starting with 512, the Goodfellon- ag
gregation took the first game by 5 pins.
Immanuels came back strong in the
second battle, taking it by 514 to 30.

Now It's Different.
It took Harvard some years to get started properly about twenty-fire
or thirty in football but now that he's under way, he crimson isn't losing
much time. ,
For over thirty years Harvard could only break in occasionally against
Yale and Princeton. The Princeton gap was twenty-five years. Ten years
moved by at one period before she scored a touchdown on Yale. And then
all of a sudden the situation changed. Not only did better material arrive
ana oeiter coaenmg for this material, but a better athletic spirit blew in
at about tho same time, and the general combinalon has turned a tail-ender
into a world series entry. Just as it took Harvard a long time to break the
old spell and reach the top, in our opinion, it will be a long time before
she is displaced. Brickley and Hardwick have still another year. Mahan
has two years. And there are others coming on. If "Brickley, Mahan, and
