HEROES OF FIRST BIG GAME IN FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES
liiphty-thrco Start in Grind on
New Course Laid Out at
Van Cortlandt Park.
Harvard Halfback's Kicking
Makes Points Enough
Team Finishes Well Bunched in
Positions Un Near Henri of
Arthur noth of the Mohawk Athletic
Club' showed his heels to a Urge squad of
starters yesterday afternoon In the junior
metropolitan individual and team cross
country championship race, held over the
new Van Cortlandt Park course. There
were ninety-five entrants for the event
and of tbeso eighty-three started.
Oeorfe Crltchley, a New York A. C.
man. who was entered for the Individual
trophy, was quick to get oft and was soon
Icallng the pack. The course led the
men across the polo Meld from the
starting point at :50th street and
Hroadi-ay to the road through the coif
links, n up the hill to Uun Hill road,
where a lam was made Into (Jroton Aque
duct roadThe harriers then ran along
the railroad tracks and across the parade
grounds to the starting point. Twice
around this route completed the course,
which measured about six and a quarter
At the end of the first mile Crltchley
was sharing the lead with S. Leslie of the
Lone Island A. C, while the man body of
runners was close behind them. As the
men reached the one and a half mile mark
the strain began to tell on some of them
and the pack became a lone snakeltke
line that wormed Its way In ilnd out
through the throngs of persons who had
gathered to see the race. The tall of the
snake was made up of a tired little band of
stragglers who had no hope of gettlne any
of the honors, but who wero wearily plod
ding; along In the effort to cross the finish
line and so to be absent from the ranks
of the quitters. M. D. Huysman of the
Irish American club was leading at this
point, but was being hard pressed by H.
Kramer and 8. Leslie of the Long Island
A. C, while Russel Bprlngsteln, a Yonkers
Y. M. C. A. man, was holding fourth place
only a short distance behind the leaders.
T. F. Barden, running unattached, came
up from behind during the next mile and
when tho runners passed tho halt way
mark at the end of the first lap ho was
leading; Huysman by about ten yards. T.
E. Hayes, another Winged Fist entrant,
wan In third place, about five yards be
hind his team mate. The easy style In
which Barden was running at this point
made him look like a certain winner, but
Roth stalled to come up from the rear at
the (our mile mark. He came into first
place shorty before the four and one-half
mile mark was reached and was never
headed thereafter. The winner showed an
easy stride throughout and crossed the
finish line at least sixty yards In front of
Barden. who was about the same distance
ahead of Leslie.
The team prize and championship wn
won by the Morntngsldo Athletic Club.
To this club belongs a great deal of credit,
for considering the short time It has been
In existence Its accorrnillKhmvnta have
been remarkable. The Harlom boys have
tried before tfi gain the Junior title, but
failure did not spell defeat for them. The
team won because as a whole it was the
Best TMIanced team In tho race. Fifth
seventh, tenth, twelfth and fourteenth
places show how well the men stuck to
gether throughout the race.

put up a mugnlflcent tight. Statu College
did about whut was expected, and won
the annual game lo-duy by the score of
14 to 0. State scored two touchdowns,
one In the second period and unother In
the fourth. Both of them were due In u
measure to I'enn's mistakes.
For the first score the Quaker linn
failed to hold when Minds kicked from his
10 yard line. The ball waa blocked by a
State forward and recovered for State by
Hanson on Penn' 14 yard line. On tho
second line up, Miller, the midget quarter
back of the visitors, fooled the Quakers'
defence and sprinted diagonally ucruss
the field before he was thrown out of
bounds on the 1 yard line. Although
Penn braced and State fumbled, the vlsl
tbra held on to the ball, and on the fourth
try Capt. Mautlie went over for the touch
down. Neither team could score lu thn next
two periods. Cspt. Mercer was Indirectly
responsible for the second touchdown,
which came In the fourth period. Mauthe.
had punted to Mercer. The ball reachrd
the Quaker on the bound and he fumbled
It as it bounded along. 'Wilson gut It for
State on I'enn's 13 yard line. Again the
l'ehu team braced and four yards was ull
State could get In two rushes.
Then Miller made a forward pass over
the goal line to Very. The Quaker cap
tain tackled the State end as he reached
for the ball. It looked as though Mercer
could have knocked the ball down, but he
did not and State scored again.
In the first half Penn outrushed State
eighty-five yards to seventy-seven yards.
In the second half Penn rushed the ball
from scrimmage only thirteen yurds to

Ilrown made a poor showing against Ver
mont on Andrews Field this afternoon.
Brown won by only 12 to 7. There wns
no particular part of the Ilrown play that
showed to less advantage than another.
The whole team seemed to have slumped.
Kor the first half the Vermonters dis
tinctly outplayed the Hill men. Both
sides fumbled several times, although
Ilrown wns the worse offender. Vermont
found the Ilrown line like paper and re
peatedly tore .through It at almost any
point for good gains.
In the first period by straight rushing
and end runs Vermont took the ball 62
yards, only to fumble on Ilrown's five
yard line. The period ended with the ball
in Ilrown's possession under her own goal
posts. Vermont's score came soon In the
second period. From the five yard line
Henry and Tenney made short gains, but
Ilrown wns penalized 1G yards for hold
lpg und tho ball went back to the-3 yaid
Theie It was fumbled Vermont recov
eilng. Sefton went over for the touch
down nnd Smith kicked the goal. Drown
braced n little und after Crowthcr had
run back a punt from mldfleld to Ver
mont's 18 yard line, Tenney nnd Crowther
curfled It over, the latter smaklng the
touchdown. Ashbaugh fulled to kick the
goal. There waa no further scoring In
the first htiir, which closed Just after Smith
failed In an attempt at u goal from place
ment fium Ilrown's 43 yard line,
Ilrown's attack Improved n little In the
second half and twice the ball was rushed
long distances, only to be lost on downs,
once on the 2 yard line nnd once on the
G yard line. Ilnrtlctt went In for Uean
at light half In the third period and the
Ilrown attack wns noticeably strong. When
the period closed the big fellow had the
ball on Vermont's 2 yard line.
The visitors made it great stand and
took tho ball on downs. Smith punted
to Vermont's 4G yard line and Ilrown on
straight tushes, Ilartlett doing most of
tho work took It back down the field for
the second score, the big right half going
over. The scoring ended there. A min
ute before the close of the game Ilrown
started a smashing Attack that chewed
up 46 yards In three plays and the whis

strength of tho Crimson eleven. In
bold relief the wonderful kicking of
Harvard's ntar halfbuck, Charles Brick
ley, utood out.
Hrlckley, noon after the second period
begun, when the score was 0 to 0,
kicked a field goal from the 15 yard
line. These three points wero more
than offest n few moments later, when
a combination of two forwards ' posies
enabled Tubby Waller to score th
Tigers' only touchdown. Pendleton's
failure to catch the ptint out deprived
Princeton of the usual goal trial, and
the score stood 6 to 3 against tho Crim
son when the second period ended.
It was In tho third period, howevrr,
that Brick ley's kicking put old Nassau
out of It. He drop kicked u goal from
tho 14 yard line after De Witt's fatal
fumble of a puss, and that tied the
score.. Then ufter Gardner hud made
a heady fair catch on Princeton's 47
yard line Hrlckley kicked a magnificent
goal from placement, driving the
leather squarely bver tho middle of thu
crossbars and placed Harvard on top,
with the totals standing 9 to 6.
It was In the fourth and last period
that Hrlckley, while taking part In a
slashing onslaught, which resulted In
a Harvard touchdown, was kicked In
tho head and so painfully Injured that
u was necessary to carry mm orwra
battlefield. But before he left they tfne
of the Crimson's triumph Ha lck
battered his way over the Tigers goal
lino and subsequently kicked a neat
goal from an angle which finished Har
vard's scoring and sent the Tigers back
to the jungle, with the total 16 to 8
Harvard's general play was a revela
tion even to the sharps. In the first
place tho condition of the Cambridge
men proved to bo of vital Importance
They stood up under the battering of
Princeton's attack with remarkable for
titude, and .hen having fought the sons
of Old Nassau to a standstill In point of
defensive tactics the Harvard players
started In to cut the enemy Into rib
bons. At punting, In catching and run
ning back kicks, In generalship and In
dogged determination to carry the day
fair Harvard excelled, .and yet It was
not without tho hardest kind of foot
ball, inasmuch as the Princeton eleven
fought with great courage until the
last whistle concluded the. struggle.
Harvard's victory was so impressive
that the great crowd went wild with
dellcht, and hundreds of undergraduates
did a serpentine dance around the field
to the music of a brass band In cele
bration of the triumph. The utmost
good feeling nnd sportsmanship pre
vailed, for In the hour of defeat Prince
ton generously cheered the conquerors
and Harvard returned the compliment
with full measure.
It might be said thut Brlckley's goal
kicking alone brought nbout the down
fall of the Jerseymen, for his educated
boot rolled up more than enough points
to offset the Tigers' total. But It was
Harvurd's alertness and vigorous hust
ling that Worked the lull to within
striking distance of Princeton's goal
posts, thereby making It possible for
Hrlckley to complete his successful drop
kicks. Each goal made In this manner
was practically an easy task, but the
goal from placement was one of the
most spectacular feats ever recorded In
When Gardner made1 hts fair catch
which led to this Incident he stood on
the 47 yard mark, or near tho centre of
tho gridiron. A brisk wind was blowing
out of tho northwest diagonally across
the field in the faces of the Harvard
players. Nothing daunted, Brlckley de
cided to take the chance, Lying flat
upon the ground Gardner poised tho
ball, with the Princeton players ar
ranged In the usual dcfenslvo forma
Around the gridiron sat Harvard and
Princeton men and women, all silent.
Not one man In ten believed that Brlck
ley could drive the pigskin so great a
distance with tho necessary momentum
and accuracy to carry It across tho magic
bar. As Brlckley took a fow rapid
steps and then drove hts right foot un
der the leather oval tho excitement of
the crowd was Intense. Up from the
turf shot tho ball, revolving rapidly,
yet making surprising headway against
tho young gnle. Over anil over It
twisted toward tho Intended mark.
With Increasing speed, 't seemed, lv
sped onward, high over tho heads of the
discomfited Tigers and whirled over the
posts directly across the wooden beam,
Thousands of Harvard flags fluttered
nnd thousands of Harvard throats
emitted a tremendous cheer, which wait
followed by hysterica! cries und tho blar
ing of tho band. Tho Harvard, players
rushed toward Brlckley and threw arms
about him In ecstasy.
Tho player smiled happily as he
shook hands with Ills companions and
