A Novel Sight. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 4 June 1887
A Novel Sight. An amusing scene was witnessed just before dusk Thursday.evening, when a game of passing ball was being enjoyed by Harvard students in a most novel fashion. Immediately in the rear of Hiitou's Block are situated a number of small wooden houses in which many students board. The night being warm several in one house sought the roof as the coolest place, and half a dozen others residing opposite adopted the same plan for obtaining the air. One in the party had a number of tennis balls with bim which he commenced throwing at those on the other roof. The balls were caught aud returned and the amusement was kept up till tbe balls failing occasionally to be caught were finally all lost. One of tbe students at this point said: ''Hold on, fellovys, I'll get some new balls," and he went away presumably to obtain some. He returned shortly afterwards with what looked to those opposite as new white bails and passed them around among his companions. It was now twilight aud all thre...
