ln the tentative eleveu sugcested In my
comment last Monday. "Hobey" Baker, of
Princeton, has been aubstltuted for Hard
? lek, of Harvard, aa one halfback. while
Englehorn, of Dartmouth, is now preferred
to I'hlllips. of I'rlnceton, at one tackle.
No effort has been made to plek an All
Araerlca t4>am for the reason that I am
in no way famtllar wlth the Western
playera. Further than that. I would em
phaaixe at thls point that whlle I saw
most of the elevens in action thls fall, lt
wm impoaalble to aee al!. and reijret to
?av that l>*hlgh and Wllllams were among
tl.ose 1 mi_a?-. The regret comes l&igely
in tha fact that each team boasted of a
l*adlng candldate for quarterback that I
felt forced to paas over. even ln the face
of oplnlona that I reapecl Hare, then. ls
fTha Trlbune'a All-Kastern team for 1912:

Katcham, Yale. Quarterback?B.icon,

Harvard, whlch went through tbe BOe

tha ac-called chanipiontdiip, gets tbFBS
placea on the team, while Va'e gets two,
Princeton two, and Dariawutb, CaraeU,
