To most people and especially to Princeton.
the Tiper defeat w?s a distinct surprise. Prince

the Cornell victory last Saturday, but her most

repeating the Ithacan trick. But Columbia
proved beyond question that the gait which she
struck In the Tale game was not an abnormal
one. Yesterday she played even better than
against the Blue, and her condition was vastly

PRINCETON'S LOST OPPORTUNITY.
Columbia** victory will go thundering down
<he annals of her football history for years to
come, for It was only the grim determination
<? her forwards and their stubborn stand
against a desperate foe that staved off a second
touchdown by the Tigers. And as it was. had
the Jerseymen been a trifle more careful, they
might have readily tied the score. This was
the way that they lost this golden opportunity:
They had scored five points by Roper's brilliant
run and touchdown, and It only remained for
them to kick the goal in order to square the
score. But the Tiger rusher who held the ball
for the goal kicker allowed It to drop on the
ground too soon. This put the leather In play.
Tee Columbia men rushed out and covered the.
ball, so Princeton's chance was gone. Captain
Pell protested vehemently against the umpire's
decision on this point, and at one time a cry
arose that Princeton would quit the game. But
the Tigers are not made that way; they played
the game to the end, though the orange stripes
were trailed de. in the mud of a sure defeat.
There was a big turnout for the struggle,
made up largely of the college element, and
the cheering was vigorous and frequent. Many

set against their struggling team with irr^-
Bistlble strength. Columbia students occupied
about the whole grandstand on the north, and
they made Rome howl from first to last. But
not the least enthusiastic crowds were the
throngs that swarmed thick over the porky
bluff to the west overlooking the gridiron. There
thej clung like flies all over the Jagged rocks
until the gray of the cliff side was turned into
a restless black. The day was perfect for player
and for spectator. Overhead th*» sun shone
from a cloudless sky. the criss-crossed gridiron

little wind to favor either side. The holiday
and weather together gave a rare opportunity

ancient gridiron foes. Yale and Princeton.
HOW THE BATTLE KAN.
Interest In the game waxed stronger as the
scugKle drew near a close, and every point
of vantage was seized by some >-agrr sight
seer. Even the engineers on the elevated road
climbed to the roof of their <aL>s and sat ab
aorbed In the mighty battle that marked
Princeton's undoing. It was nut until the very
end that a Columbia victory seemed certain,
though the Blue and White men were outplay
ing their opponents. The battle In general was
waged like this: Columbia started in the first
half a strong rushing game that carried the
play well Into the Tiger lair. Here she lost the
ball. but the Jerseymen were- «yak at both
rushing and kicking. So Columbia again took
the ball, and this time she carried it straight
up the field to the touchdown that spelled vic
tory for her. The goal was easy, and the half
ended 6 to 0. The Tigers entered the second
half determined to eat dp their enemies In short
order. They played about, twice as fast as be
fore, and went down the field like a whirlwind
But right under the shadow of their own goal
Columbia held magnificently, and sent the play
back to miclneld. Here, a Columbia back dropped
the leather. Roper, of Princeton, was on it like
a flash, and dashed almost half the field for a
A GROUP OP COLUMBIA AND , PRINCETON PI^AYFRS.
touchdown. But his side lost Its chance to tie
the score, as has been described already, and
during the rest of the half the struggle waged
more fiercely each moment, for the Tigers die
hard. Four times they tried for a field goal, and
i missed it each time. Then their hearts were
I broken, and toward the end of the game Colum-
I bia kept pushing Princeton back rapidly.
THE TIGERS' POOR RECORD.
"What a snap Yale will have with these
: lobster*:" remarked a Yale man. with a smile.
Just after the Tigers had been swept from the
. field. And Princeton's football stock is certain
ly in a state to dismay the most daring manlpu
; lator. for her record this season Is: A victory
I over the Annapolis Cadets, by only one score;
I a defeat of Lafayette' by the same narrow
margin, and a licking at the hands of both
: Cornell and Columbia. Yet, Yale will not al
j low herself to become too cocky over the Prlnce
, ton showing yesterday, for the Tigers sometimes
| come up with a rush in the last fortnight before
j the big gam.-. The effort of playing Cornell a
I hard game and then of meeting Columbia so
j soon was plainly too much for Princeton's
vigor. The result was that the men were all
: sleepy and slow throughout the first half. The
j backs started poorly, they fumbled frequently,
; and they got in one another's way. When Co-
I lumbia was making her touchdown they seemed
| dazed and altogether out of the game. In the
second half they did much better, but even then
they were not in prime physical condition. That
I was evident.
LINEUP OF THE ELEVENS.
The time set for the game was 2:30 p. m.. but
It was several minutes after that hour when
the two elevens lined up fo- the fray. The teams
were made up, with the substitutes that came

when the umpire gave them the ball for Colum

Tigers could not gain. Ju*.t before time was

Then th- Columbia brass bands broke out into
ragtime melodies, and th.- air was tilled with
blue and white nags.
Princeton started in the second half with a
great rush, and for a time played old-fashioned
Tiger football. Her attack was irresistible, and
those eager Tiger backs woke Into life and
squirmed an( i twisted yard after yard out of
Columbia's previous di main. Straight down to

The Cersey eleven regained the ball on a

another try for a field goal. It was a feeble
effort, and Weekes, the swift, the resourceful

and dodged a half a dozen Princeton tackier*.
Columbia punted to mldrield. The ball was
kicked back, and Weekes once more scored a
dandy run. making the Tiger tacklers look like
thirty csnts. The Columbia team again started
in its machine work, but all of a sudden
slipped a cog". It was fullback Berrien that
dropped the ball In mldfleld. Roper, for Prince

clip, the Princeton followers howling him on.
The whole Columbia eleven set out in hot pur
