STARTED FROM 8HEEPSHEAD
BAY SEPT. 17.
Rodgers set out from Sheepshead Ray
Track, New York, on Sept. 17, at 1.25
o'clock In the afternoon. Ills start was
blocked by a crowd of '.',000 persons who
had gathered on the floid, with only two
policemen on hand to keep them In
check. It was only after pleading and
cajoling that the Interested crowd
opened up space enough to allow a pos
sibility of a start. Rodgers kissed hla
mother and sister good-by, shouted out
a ..nal warning to the enthusiasts and
climbed Into his Wright biplane. He
slid along Ihe ueid and then soared. No
ciutluus course did the youthful aviator
take. He pointed the nose of the plane
straight over the Manhattan skyscrap
ers, where the eddying air currents are
the terror of every aviator, passed them
and was soon lost to view.

PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. 4. In spite of all the dopesters, whd
made Harvard favorite In the betting, Princeton defeated Harvard here
to-day by well earned score of 8 to 6. The Princeton line showed none
of expected weakness. And Wendell, the great Harvard halfback, made
fewer gains than lie has made in any other game this year. In fact,
Wendell was held so close that Harvard was forced to make a punting
Kame of it. Wendell only had one chance to how in the ptme, and that
was when, with the ball placed on Princeton's 2-yard line, by a long
forward pass he smashed through
