What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
. Ball Artists Are Doing.
Princeton lays claim to the foot
biil championship of the East, but
her claim is a very flumsy one.
True the referee declared them
winners, but in the score against
Yale the referee's decision was
clearly not in accordance with the
rulea. Again in the Dartmouth
game, the ball bounded off the
ground 6ver the goal posts. Tech'
nically this is a goal, as there is no
rule to cover the point, but accord
ing to the spirit of, the game, the
ball Bhould go over the bar clean,
and ' no. doubt the rulea will be
changed to cover this point.

An interesting Question as to
whether the Princeton touchdown
against Yale in the Jrig game was
illegal under the rules, has been
raised by followers of the game.
According to the section, 17, para
graph C, of rule 6:
"When any portion of the person
(except the hands and feet) of the
player carrying the ball . touch the
ground, when the player is in the
grasp of an opponent, the ball is
In the opinion of those who . saw
the play, Howe tackled White by
the leg and downed him a yard and
a half from the Yale goal. Then
both players slid through the mud
over the Yale goal line.
Section 6 of rule 6, paragraph 5,
provides: - -
"The referee shall blow his
whistle or declare the 'ball dead
when any portion of his person
(the runner's) except his hands
and feet, touches the ground, while
he is in the grasp of an opponent."
