Special to The Sunday Heiiald.
Lexingtox, Va., Nov. 7. The Georgetown
'Varsity team of footbalHsts arrived bero
early this morning to piny a match came with
the Washington arid Lee University, a team
that recently defeated the University of
Virginia and which is regarded as the best in
the State. The Georgetowns did not I ring
their be6t players along, ntc eever.il 'of their
men could, not leave their studies",' while
othere were in the infirmary at home. They
met -with a cordial reception from the
students and when the two teams lined up
on the grounds there were fully 1.500 people
present, representing the pick of that section
of the State in a. "social way. There was a
large number of private carriages on the
grounds and a number of the fair occupants
wore the clue and gray of Georgetown. The
game itself was replete with splendid plays,
the work of the Georgetown team calling
outgeneral commendation. The running of
Dowd, the fleet-footed half-back of the
Georgetowns. was the great feature of the
contest, and it is doubtful if the like was ever
seen before. He made nearly all the touch
downs and was the hero of the game. Keyes
played a splendid full-back and kicked goals
in good shape. Dongal and Gately also did
some very clever work. The Washinston
and Lee'B made two touch-downs and once
kicked coal, both being 6etfured through some
clever work or .their rushers. The score
ended in favor of the Georgetowns, 30 to 0.
THE PRINCETON'S VICTORY.
They NeTcrtinvo the Unlrernlty of Penn
sylvania Boys a Show.
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 7. Princeton,
24; University of Pennsylvania, 0. The score
tellsthe tale. From the very start the Uni
versity team was outplayed by the men from
Jersey and never were given a cluuee to
score. Princeton's score was made from a
touch-down in the first half from which
Homans fallecr to kick a yoal, tbree goals
from touchdowns In tbe second half and a
safety touch-down that she forced the Penn
sylvania boys to make.
Tbe game was nlujed on tho grounds of
the Germantown Cricket Club atManhelm
and 12,000 people cheered the battling teams
as they struggled for victory.
The game was scheduled to begin at 2:30,
but it was a quarter of an hour after that when
time was called. The two teams as they
lined up were as follows:
Pennsylvania Right, Schoff; right-tackle,
Bypher; right-guard, Fowler; centre, Adams;
left-guard, Thornton; left-tackle, Mackey;
left-end, Heisman; quarter-back, Church;
half-back6, Camp and Brausou; lull-back,
Princeton Vincent, legend; Holly, left
tackle; Wheeler, left-guard; Symmes, centre;
Riggs, right-guard; Harrohi, right-tackle;
Warren, rigbtend; Flint and Poo, half-back6;
Homans, full-back; King, quarter-back.
The referee was Mr. Graves, of Yale, and
the umpire, Mr. Coflin, of West Ryan.
As the two teams stood facing each other,
they seemed nearly evenly matched in weight
and size, and the expectations of the crowd
for a closely-contested came were materially
raised. Pennsylvania started the game with
"V," Camp having the ball. Pennsylvania's
wedge wa6 broken by tbe Princeton forwards
and Camp wa6 downed after a gain of ten
yards had been made. Pennsylvania soon
lost the ball and Flint advanced it five yards
It soon developed that Princeton's rush-lino
was far superior to that of Pennsylvania's,
and could break through almost at will.
Again, in team work was Princeton far ahead
of her opponent. Nevertheless, in this half
Pennsylvania made a gallant struggle, and
although she could not get the ball far from
her goal posts she kept Princeton from scor
ing for twenty-five minutes and held the score
down for the half to one touch-down. Flint,
for Princeton, and Branson, for the Uniyer
eity, did most of tho work for their respective
teams Iu the first half. Both teams tried
bucking through the centre, and occasionally
sending a man around tbe ends.
Poe, after n fine run of thirty yards, made
a touch-down, but tho umpire had the ball
brought back and given to Pennsylvania on
tbe ground that Princeton bad fouled tho
former by holding. Gradually Princeton
forced the ball down to within two yards of
Pennsylvania's goal line. The ball wbb
passed to Flint, who lowered his head and
charged straight through Pennsylvania's rush
line uud touched the ball down. Homans
failed to kick the goal. In the struggle that
took plate over the line, Thayer, Pennsyl
vania's full-back, was kicked in the head and
forced to retire, Martin taking his place.
Jiartin immediately distinguished himself by
making a run of forty yaids, but it was Penn
sylvania's Ja6t effort.
When at the end of forty-five miuutes time
Mas called, Princeton had again driven Penn
sylvania to within five yards of her line.
After an intermission of fifteen minutes the
two teams again lined up, Princeton having
the ball and the opposite goal from tho pro-
ccdine half. Princeton opened with her
favorito "V," and soon charged tho ball far
into tbe Pennsylvania's territory.
Prluceton's strong, aggressive play in tho
first half had told on Pennsylvania, and sho
soon began to weaken. Her forwards wcro
unnblo to head Princeton, and ten minutes
after play had started Homans had made a
rjn of twonty yards and scored u touch
down. He then kicked a goal, bringing
Princeton's score up to 10. Prlucetou changed
her tactics from tho first half, and kept send
ing little Poe aVouud tho ends. Poo seldom
failed to eain bis necessary five yards, and
scored two touch-downs from which Homans
kicked goals, making Princeton's score 22.
Pennsylvania lost another man, Sypher being
hurt. Griffiths tiok his place. Pennsylvania
then was forced to make ti safety touch
down. This ending tho scoting for Princeton,
and us it was nearly dark and tho crowd had
surged into the field, at the end of forty
minutes' play tho gamo waR called. Scorn:
Princeton, 24; University of Pennsylvania, 0.
Throughout tho gamo was free from any slug
ging on either side, and was pltiyed with great
falrucss by both teams.
Captain Warren, of Princeton, llko the other
heroes of football, is young. It would seem
that the strength and aeility necessary for
noteworthy success in tho gamo are outgrown
in a few years after tho ago of majority. Ho
is now 21 years old. While a pupil at thii
Lawrence Preparatory School he was a mom
berot the cloven, his position half-back, and
was made Captain of tho team. When ho en
tered Princeton ho was placed at left-end,
where he continues. 1 here are critics of tho
game who say that Captain Warren is too easy
in his treatment of his team, and that ho does
not make tbe most of tbeir ability as players.
This is no reflection on the unquestionable ex
cellence of his play as an individual member

of the eleven. Warren is tall and slender.
He is a painstaking and trustworthy rather
than a brilliant player, and there is lime yot
for him to more than justify his choice as
leader of. the Princeton team. His thorough
nesses a' leading characteristic of the man.
The Kendalls Defeated at Annapolis.
Tho Kendalls of this city visited Annapolis
yesterday and played a 45-miuute contest
with the Naval Cadets. It was a stubborn
struggle from start to finish. The Cadets were
only able to score one touch-down, and this
was by the merest chance. When tbe ball wa
near the Cadets' goal, Benet grabbed a fum
bled ball, and with a clever field scored. A
goal was kicked making the score 0 to 0.
For the Kendalls, Ely, Taylor, and Brown did
excellent work, while Ryan's running was a
featurs of the game. Macklin, Benet, and
Campbell carried off tho honors for the
Cadets. The teams were as follows:
Kendalls Position Cadets
Stewart Left end Syminton
Ely Left tackle Benet
bobbins Left guard Pearson
Brown Centre Holsinger
Gallaudet Right-guard French
Wilcox Rlght-tackle Macklin

The KutgorH-Colujnbia Game.
One of the finest games of football ever
played In this city was that of last Monday be
tween tho Rutgers College team, and tho
Columbia Athletics, of this city. Every one
predicted easy victory for .rtutgers, and tho
500 people who witnessed the contest were
aerecably surprised at the splendid game put
up by the C. A. 0., which resulted in a victory
for tho Rutgers by a score of 4 to 0. If tho
C. A. C. had shown a little more team work
tho victory would have been theirs. It was a
scientific game and the ball was kept Ju motion,
first near one goal aud then near tho other.
The feature of tho game was Emery's fine
guarding and running for tho C. A. C. It
was about the best exhibition given hero this
season, and by it lie aided TownBend to make
all of his ruus. It is doubtful if a hotter
game will be setn here this year.

A "Smoko" at tho C. A. C.
Tho Columbia Athletic Club gavo a
"smoke" in their gymnasium last evening, and
tho place was filled by a largo crowd of tho
members. Tho nfTalr was under the manage
ment of Mr. E. Droop, and tho various
features wore carried out with u good deal of
enthusiasm, and afforded pleasure to nil. Tho
programmo was as follows: "Macho Trlom

This is a creditable showing.
Kendall Urcon runts.
Odom is playine a fine full back, bis tack
ling and kicking being something remarkable.
Some of the yard adherents believe that a
mistake was made in placing Taylor in tho
lino. Ho was one of tho best half backs iu
tho city aud his runs through tho lino always
brought a good gain for his side.
Gallaudet is playing a splendid gamo on tho
lino and he blocks and keeps his men well in
haud in all the tackles and interferauces.
Ely, Brown aud Hare are great additions to
the team, as they play football all the time.
Ryan is playing a splendid game behind tho
lino and ho guards and Interferes in star style.
Ely is captaining tho Kendalls now, and tho
team is playing great ball.
Taylor is playine a great game at half-back
for tbe Kendalls. Bobbins, a now man, has
taken the former's place in tho line.

The Georgetown 'Varsity team lacks prac

suffer for want of team work.
It Is probable that at an early day another

The American Foot-ball Union sat down on
the Manhattan Athletic Club very hard last
week and the Manhattans have retired from
tho union. Following out its usual profes
sional ways, this club 6ent out to Chicago and
got Ames, Donnelly, and Lilly to come cast
for a few months to play with them and tho
union passed a resolution prohibiting any
player from taking part in a championship
game who did not live within one hundred
miles of New York. This killed tho Manhat
tans. The board of governors of the Potomac
Athletic Club held an Important meeting on
Wednesday evening and mapped out a plan
.for tbe future welfare of tho club. To meet
existing obligations it was decided to issue interest-bearing
bonds dt the face value of $10
each, and the money thus raised will place tho
club on an easy footing. This the directors
believed was a much better way of releasing
the club from Its Indebtedness than by impos
ing an assessment on the individual members.
Tho club is in no worse shape than it has
hitherto been, but this is deemed a good way
to clear off all the debts. Mr. O. P.Schmidt
was given authority to get up entertainments
during the winter season at the club house,
aud tho first one takes place on Saturday
On Tuesday the Columbia Athletics will
play a gamo at Capitol Park with tho team
selected from the Baltimore Athletic Club.
The team from Baltimore is strong made up
of Princeton and other collego graduates.
Mr. E. A. Poe, the great quarter-back, is
coaching them, while a brother plays quarter
back. A largo delegation of Baltlmoreans will
come over to 6ee the game.
It is understood that the Columbia Athletics
are endeavoring to get Wagenhurst, of the
University of Pennsylvania, and Thomas, of
tbe Princeton Collego team, to comohere and
coach them for tho big came of Thanksgiving
Day. It Is very pronablo that tho latter gen
tleman will come. He waB the great tacKler
in lust year's Princeton eleven, and therefore
must'be a good man to handle an eleven.
Tho O. A. C. did not eo to the University
of Virginia yesterday owing to tbe inability of

The project to bold a joint athletic enter
tainment In this city during tho coming win
ter, under tbe auspices of tho A. A. U., meets
with considerable favor among our cluba. In
tho three organizations there is a coterie of
scientific wrestlers and 6parrers, and each
aspirins athlete is anxious to try conclusions
with tho other. Such an exhibition, where
tho contest would be for points, would surely
afford plenty of excitement among the or
ganizations, and there would be just as much
enthusiasm as if it was a boat race. The
clubs should arrange the meeting,

tho Now York Leaguo team; Nicholson, a busv

third base, of the Sioux City team. He has an
option on Knell, the 'Columbus star pitcher,
