f
the gamo there was still another ova- "
tlon In store for him, and It lasted until
three Harvard substitutes had borne
him away on their shoulders.
Only one other player, Duntap, the
plucky Princeton end rush, was serl-
ously hurt, although the combat at I
times bristled with the roughest kind
of tackling. In which players of
both sides Hustalned falls that would
have sent an ordinary human being
to the hospital, Dunlap, In a fierce
scrimmage, dislocated his shoulder and
was compelled to give way to a sub
stitute. A half Ituur before the teams lined
up for action It looked as If the crowd
would be comparatively small, In splto
of the glorious football weather, but
within a space of twenty minutes ths 1
great stadium fllkd up until there were
few vacant seats. Several thousand
Princeton adherents were In the north i
stand and they whooped things up
when tho Tigers appenred. Their songs
were loudly applauded by the Harvard
crowd, which soon monopolized every
thing by sending forth volumes of
sound that worn appalling. It wm
scmewhnt chilly when tho game began
arid heavy winter wraps proved un
expectedly comfortable.
A remarkable feature was the record
hreaMng number of automobiles parked 1
lh' the vicinity of the stadium. It being)
estimated that at least 4,000 motor cars
brought enthusiasts to the grounds and
then waited to take them away. Another
odd Incident was the playing of tte

CaMdripge. Mass., s'ov. 2. In spite of
last night's rloudburst the playing Held
-was in excellent condition. It bail been
entirely covered with straw so that thf
rain did no stent amount of lmrtn. A
combination of sunlight and wind dried
the gridiron long before the noon hour
and when It was Inspected by the rival
coaches fast work siemed to be a fore
gone conclusion.
i lyighty reception was In store for the
arvard eleven and substitutes when.
headed by Cant. Wendell, they ran out
of the locker building and hurried Into
view. Thirty-three players were In uniform
and In a Jiffy two elevens were running
through signals. Wlthln Ave minutes the
Tigers loomed up and the Nassau con
tingent burst Into singing. The betting
which In thp morning had slightly favored
Harvard later became an even money
proposition.
The crowd watched with breathless In
terest the punting and goal kicking In
practice, Brlckley coming In for u larg
share of the applause for Held goals,
which he kicked with surprising facility.
Having Umbered up. It was now time for
Capt. Wendell to meet his rls-al, Capt.
Pendleton, In mldttcld, where the oftlclals.
Referee Lansford, t'mplre Wllllnms and
Linesman Nelly, went through the usual
formalities t 1th them.
Wendell Calls the Ton,
A coin was tossed In the air and Wen
dell called the turn. The ball was as
signed to Princeton to be kicked off and
on the Tigers' 40 yard line a mound of
loose earth was shaped Into a tee for the
poising of tho pigskin. The cheering and
singing which bad been going on for
nearly a half hour suddenly ceased and a
few minutes after 2 o clock nig nller,
the Princeton halfback, ialsd the hall
In tho air for a flight far Into Harvard's
territory. Instantly the crowd renewed
Its noisy encouragement of loth teams.
As the ball fettled Into the outstretched
arms of Hardwlck he started to run It
back, but was confronted by Andrews,
i who threw him down heavily on Harvard's
,. twenty-seven yard line. This play started
I the fight In earnest. Without delay Fel
, ton,' whoso punting was Immense all
through the struggle, kicked the ball out
, of bounds at Princeton's forty-six yard
j line.
! The leather was taken In IB yards for
! a scrimmage and Stew linker, the Tigers'
I quarterback, tried to make an Impression
I upon Trumbull Harvard's right guard.
Baker gained three yards before he was
jammed to earth under a heap of strut-
gllng humanity. De Witt, the bulky full
back, followed with a similar gain and
whe,n Pendleton made a first down on
' Harvard's sixty yard line the Princeton
crowd was cheering wildly.
Harvard's defence straightway became
Impregnable and De Witt was bowled
over without gaining a foot. There was
holding In the Princeton line, for which
Harvard received fifteen yards. The Tl
; gers sent K. Waller Into another scrim
' mage, the latter's advance being fiercely
checked by Hardwlck's timely tackle. De
Witt dropped back as If to punt. It was
j a fake kick and Stew was an easy mark
f when he tried once more to penetrate the
Harvard battlements.
I Decide on Kicking; Game.
J De Witt on tho next play punted to
e Gardner, who received a vicious tackle
as he tried to run the ball back from
I Harvard's 39 yard line. Felton also was
! a party to a fake kick, the plunging Wen
I dell gaining three yards through Phillips
I and Hlienk. Promptly It was decided to
defer attacking the Princeton line so Fel
. ton kicked the bull well Into the Tigers'
preserves. Pendleton throw up his arm
as a signal for it fair cctcli. but after
selling the ball he tried to run and fell.
' Pendleton attempted to circle Harvard's
I left wing but was met by Kclton, who
downed him for no gain. The teams were
on Princeton's 24 yard line nnd U. Waller
dropped back as If to punt. Instead he
was lucky to pick up Uluethenthal's
ragged pass for three Harvard forwards
.were upon him befme he could take a
step. Waller, however, wriggled out of
this predicament nnd made a dashing
run out of bounds at Princeton's 33 yard
line.
Again Pendleton failed to advance when
he dashed townrd Harvard's left end,
after which H Witt punted to Hardwlck,
who juggled the ball but hugged It tightly
and ran over the sidelines' ut Harvard's

HARVARD VICTORY NOT DUE
TO LUCK-A BETTER TEAM
by right wind.
BOSTON. Mass.. Nov. 2. There
was no luck of great moment In Har
vard's victory or Princeton's .defeat
on Soldiers' Field to-day. The Crim
son eleven was ably run throughout,
the contest with a. few trifling excep-.
tions, played the punting game close
to the limit of its efficiency, and.made
pood use of one of the best drop
Kickers it has been my good fortune
ever to see on any gridiron. Felton's
splendid punting made the openings
for the star drop kicker, and the latter
took advantage of enough of these,
openings to enable the Crimson to
keep up In the point making and at
the same time save the running at
tack until the time came to show it
at its best. There were moments In
the early part of the game when
Harvard supporters wondered why the
fine backs were not called into action
for a march down the field. Just
enough of the running attack was
uncovered to test the Princetofl de
fence, and when the time came the
Harvard field general knew where
and how to strike. Princeton was out
played in every department of the
game.
a seat on the sidelines. Bradlee suc
ceeding him at fullback.
On the resumption of play Waller found
Harvard's defence so oowerful that In a
plunge Into the right wing he gained .only
it single yard.
Behind a wing snitt uc
"'lit attempted to bore a hole In the same
us r to maxe n rorwara pass, dui ran
across the field to fall vlctom to a tackle
by Andrews which resulted In a loss or
four yards. Pendleton frightened the
Princeton crowd by muffing Felton's punt,
which he recovered, however. In a wild
scramble on Princeton's forty-seven yard
line. Pendleton gained three yards by
diving between Storer and Tennock and
behind a shift Waller made a similar gain
through the opposite wing.
Brlckler Tackles Hard.
Around Harvard's right end. which was
well boxed, came Waller on another play
which promised big results, but Brick
ley was thcte with a deadly tackle. It
was the fourth down with a half a yard
to gain and De Witt made the required
distance by a hard plunge through the
centre of the Harvard line.
The Tlcers were attacking fiercely and
all Prlnreton was up In arms. Scooting
around Harvard's left and a dazzling run
by Pendleton was cut short by Gardner's
low tackle on Harvard's 30 yard line. De
Witt butted Into Pennock and Storer for, a
yard, but when Waller darted for Har
vard's rlcht wing Hitchcock caught him
by the foot and pulled him down for a
loss. Harvard received nve yards for orr
aide play and Waller on a fake kick
started for the right end. Hitchcock
missed him nnd he was gaining headway
when Coolldge brought him to earth with
a corking tackle.
The ball was on Harvard's 45 yard line,
where De Witt made a successful forward
pass to Stew llaker. a play that brought
the "Princeton shouters to their feet. De
Witt followed with a punt that drove the
leather out of bounds at Harvard's 15
i yard line, but Felton quickly returned the
compliment and once more Pendleton, first
muftlng the pigskin, recovered ll in tne
nick of time on Princeton's 45 yard line.
Harvard a powerful rush line withstood
attacks by Waller, Pendleton and De Witt,
so that on the fourth down the Tigers had
teu yards to gain. It was necessary to
punt und De Witt's drive was collared by
Gardner for a fair catch on Harvard's 24
yard line. Hero It was that Brlckrey
showed he could rush as well as kick, foT
he sprinted around Princeton's left end
for five yards and probably would have
gone further had it not been for a stum
ble. rendition's St off Costly.
Harvard's kicking game was continued,
for Felton on the next" play booted a
punt which Pendleton once more failed to
catch. He ran after the bounding oval
ns It rolled dangerously toward Prince
ton's goal line and finally pounced upon
It just as Gardner tackled him on the 11
yard line. Harvard's crimson banners
shot aloft on all sides of the gridiron and
Harvard's cheers rang out. But the Tigers
were fighting, and een though their goal
lino was threatened Stew Baker, De Witt
and Pendleton In a series of dashing plays
worked the leather back to their 22 yard
line, where the teams were lining up for
another scrimmage just aa the first period
came to an end.
PRINCETON TAKES LEAD.
Second I"frlod Ends O to 3 I
m Favor
of Tigers.
So far neither lean, nad scored and
nobody dared to prophesy tho result. A
mlnute'B rest elapsed and the teams
changed goals. Play was resumed when
De Witt made a slovenly punt, Hardwick
grabbing the ball on Princeton's 30 yard
line. In the mlxup Hardwlck's trousers
were llteraly torn off and the crowd en
joyed a laugh when, surrounded by Har
vard substitutes, he was hustled to the side
lines to bo patched up. In the short In
terval the Princeton crowd showed how
the Tiger roared and Harvard's army
burst Into song anew.
Lining up again, Brlckley was sen
tenced to batter his way to Princeton's
right wing, but as Penfleld was offside
Harvard received five yards. Hlght at
this point csme an unexpected attack by
Harvard that tore Old Nassau's rush line
to tutors. Brlcklsy lowered his head and
wriggled through a hole between Phillips
nnd Shenk to Princeton's 22 yard line.
He repeated this attack and gained
three more yards. A ripping, tearing
plunge by Hardwlck between the same
Tigers carried the ball to the 16 yard
line. Shifting rapidly Brlckley bored his
way between Logan and Bluethenthal for
another yard. There was holding In the
Tiger's line and Harvard received five
yards additional. Another Irresistible
rush by Hardwlck beat the Tigers back
to the 4 yard line.
Goal Thrills Crowd.
It looked like a touchdown, but just
at that moment Princeton's grit asserted
Itself and every man on the Tiger team
braced himself to prevent a score. It was
u bitter conflict, in which Brlckley, des
perately trying to cross the goal line, was
stopiK'd short without gaining a foot.'
Harvard's generalship proved successful
when, convinced that further attempts to
Htniihli thu Tiger defences would be fruit
leas, It was decided to allow Brlckley to
try for a field goal.
Brlckley dropped back just Inside the
15 yard line and the ball was passed to
him with perfect accuracy. Protected
by nn Impregnable defensive formation
Brlckley dropped the ball to the turf and
raised It with his toe, while the crowd
looked on In breathless excitement. The
leather twisting over and over, hurtled
over the crossbar less than a yard Inside
of one of thq uprights.
It wus ii goal from the field and It
kindled the Harvard contingent Into a
Crimson flame, Tho cheering lasted sev

posts until Brickley picked It up. Half
a dozen Princeton Pen were running full
tilt In Brlckley's direction yet he dodged
them all and sprlnUng brilliantly, he got
as far as Harvard's 18 yard line. Brick
ley would have had a clear field for a
touchdown had It not been for a belated
tackle by Andrews, who collared him from
behind.
Dunlap had wrenched his shoulder and
was forced to give way to Wight and the
moment the' latter 'ran out to the warring
plays he whispered something to Quarter
back Baker. Perhaps It was a tip from
the Princeton ' coaches "or It might have
been a word of encouragement, but the In
cident was forgotten when Hrlckley, cleav
Ing'hts way through Princeton's left wing,
gained 10' yards, which carried the teams
to Harvard's twenty-eight yard line. Pen
dleton made a fair catch out of Felton's
lowering punt on Princeton's forty-four
yard line. Stew Baker found Harvard's
centre as hard as steel and failed to gain.
De Witt dlsoovcred that Trumbull was like
a block of granite though he got a yard.
Waller made a bee line for Harvard's
right end, but Trumbull made a ono
handed tackle nnd Tubby was down for a
loss. That kind of defensive work showed
the stuff that Harvard was made of and
De Witt was forced to punt. Onrdner
made a beautiful running catch, but Phil
lips tackled him' on Harvard's 35 yard
line. Bradlee waa thrown back for a
small loss and Princeton received fifteen
yards for holding in the Harvard tine.
The ball was nineteen yards from the
Crimson, goal and Felton straightway got
In a tremendous punt. Although the wind
veered the ball over near the Princeton
side linen Pendleton judged It correctly
and made a rattling capture of lt, which
he followed with a hair raising sprint to
Harvard s 48 yard line. Pendleton was
thrown by Hitchcock, but he jumped up
and plunged through Storer for nnother
yard. Harvard a defence again showed
Its unusual power when De Witt and Wal
ler were tumbled over without appreci
able advantage, after which De Witt
punted the ball across the goal line Into
touch.
Blnethrnthal on Ihr .lob.
The leather was put In play on Har
vard's 20 yard line and on a fake ktck
Brlckley was making headway around the
Tigers' left end when a redhot tackle by
Bluethenthal spilled the I larval d halfbtck
In a heap. Felton followed with n punt
to Pendleton, who cleverly dodged Storer
and scurried back to Princeton's 4f yard
line. Entirely unexpected was a forward
pass by Andrews to Pendleton, but tho
ball carried too far and the pass was un
completed. On the next lineup Andrews tried an
other forward pass and this time Pendle
ton caught the ball after leaping Into the
air. He took half a dozen steps In the
direction of Harvard's goal line, but the
Princeton cheers wre cut short when
Gardner toppled him on Harvard's twenty-six
yard line. Pendleton tried to buck
through the left wing, but Storer beat
him back for a loss of four yards.
Swiftly came another forward pass by
Andrews, which was highly spectacular.
Big Waller reached high above his head
and caught the leather just as two Har
vard men tried to reach him with fly
ing tackles. Waller dodged nnother Crim
son player and a fourth received .a
straight arm and was sent flying on his
back. The collision sent Waller down
too, and for a moment the wildest excite
ment followed. Harvard men were strug
gling to reach the fallen Tiger, while
Princeton plays were rushing towards him
to give aid.
Waller Makes Tonchdorrn.
Waller scrambled to his feet, dodged
Gardner and Pennock and lumbered to
wards the goal line. Just as he was
crossing It Brlckley and Hardwlck threw
themselves upon him. but It was too late
for Waller had made a touchdown, and
Princeton lost Its senses.
The ball was carried over the chalk
mark close to the sidelines, so that it was
necessary to punt out befort a goal trial
could be attempted. Pendleton, whose
fingers still were co-ered with butter,
muffed the ball as he stood In front of
the goal post, thereby nullifying the trial.
But Princeton had scored six points and
Harvard was the underdog.
It "would take much lime and space to
describe the Joy of the adherents of New
Jersey's university at this unexpected
turn In the tide, but when play was re
sumed Princeton's confidence had been
Increased two fold, and there was un
mistakable apprehension among the Har
vard men, who had been surprised by this
form of Princeton's assault.
The ball was kicked off from Harvard's
40 yard line. Felton drove It far down
the field to Pendleton, who this time mak
ing a clean catch scooted back to Prince
ton's 28 yard line. Waller lost no tlmo
in dashing around Harvard's right end.
but he waa driven out of bounds Into a
pile of straw by Coolldge and Hitchcock.
Storer broke through and flattened Pendle
ton for a loss of four yards, on top of
which Harvard received five yards for
offside play.
On a fake kick formation Waller started
with the ball, then passed It to Pendleton.

smashed through, and down went Pendle
ton for another loss. Hardwlck picked up
De Witt s punt on the bound, but before
he could get under way Phillips nailed
him on Harvard's 35 yard line. On a fake
forward pass Hardwlck sprinted diagon
ally across .the gridiron, bowltng over
several Tigers with a straight arm. until
De Witt threw his arms around the Har
vard man's waist and stopped him after a
three yard gain.
Brlckley found a small hole In the
centre of the scrimmage and got a yard.
The Tigers braced up and Felton punted.
Pendleton circled around like a beheaded
chicken under the falling ball and muffed
It as If It were red hot. Storer and
Coolldge were down under this kick like
racehorses and for a moment It looked ns
If Pendleton's error had proved1 disastrous.
But he dived headlong for the rolling ball
and recovered It on. Princeton's 25 yard
tine. Harvard's stone wall rush llnn made
Waller nnd the other Princeton backs see
myriads of stars ns they fruitlessly col
llded with It. De Witt was compelled to
punt on the fourth down and Phillips,
hustling down the Held ut top speed, col

Tiger Captain Fumbles.
Coolldge tried to advance the ball for
Harvard, but Waller encircled his neck
and four yards were lost. Gardner tried
a forward pass and hurtled the ball
straight Into Waller's grasp, a play that
brought a rattling cheer from the Prince
ton cohorts. This was on Harvard's 42
yard line and in the twinkling of an eyo
Andrews also attempted a forward pass.
The ball was accurately thrown to Pendle
ton, but because of the latter's slippery
fingers the leather was dropped and the
pass was uncompleted.
Coolldge was used up by this time and
O'Brien, who played rattling football, suc
ceeded him at Harvard's right end. Cling

had yielded a score, Andrews resorted to
still another forward pass, the ball falling

ALL HARVARD, SECOND HALF.
Crimson Moon Kquala Princeton,
Then Passe llrr.
When the teams came back shortly af
ter 3 o'clock, no chunges had been made In
the Harvard lineup, but Pendleton had
been substituted for Wight at Princeton's
right end, Hobey Baker had succeeded
Pendleton at left halfback. Baker wu
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER'
the recipient of a royal greeting when he
made his appearance In the Princeton
lineup, for his great run against Dart
mouth last Saturday had not been forgot
ten and the Jersey crowd fully expected
to see him repeat It.
Baker kicked off for Princeton and
Brlckley, dodging here and there, car
ried the ball to Harvard's 38 yard line.
Harvard wasn't ready to tear things up
just yet, so Felton punted. The ball soared
to Hobey uaker, who. caught on his 9
yard tin?. Before he could get his bear
ings O'linno sprang upon him and put
him down. ,
Waller waa sent Into Harvard's left
wing 'for a 3 yard gain, but when he
shifted to the other side of the Crimson
line he fumbled a pass and recovered It
just as O'Brien was about to pick up the
ball. Hobey Baker was called 'Upon to do
something. Felton was waiting for him,
however, and carried htm bodily back' to
Princeton's 16 yard tine for 'a loss of 6
yards. The play was fast and furious
and the Harvard forwards were breaking
through so powerfully 'that Bluethenthal
made a poor pass .which De Witt fum
bled. As the ball twisted out of his arms
Felton and Pennock fell upon. It on Prince
ton's 5 yard line., Quick as a flash Har
vard leaped up and made ltome howl.
Princeton had been stricken dumb. A
plunge by Hardwlck advanced the pigskin
to within three yards of Princeton's goal
inn-. ii iwrnru us it it luuuiuunn ncio
Inevitable, but the Tigers braced and
Brlckley was thrown back for a small
loss. Also Princeton received five yards
for offsldo play, which was a temporary
life saver, but Brlckley, scrambling over
several fallen players, fought hlss.way
back to Trlnceton's 7 yard line.
Again It looked as lt Harvard would
score a touchdown and again the Tigers
showed their claws. Into the scrimmage
dashed Brlckley nnd for a moment tho
rival players swayed back and forth In
deadly strife. Down fell the struggling
warriors In a heap and underneathi Brlck
ley lay panting on the 6 yard line.
But he had managed to work the ball
more In front of the goal posts and Hard
wlck the next moment carried lt to the
proper place. It was a comparatively
straight kick that Brlckley attempted, and
from the 14 yard mark he lifted the
leather squarely over tho crossbar for' his
second field goal. This mado tho score
fl to 6 and filled the Harvard rooters with
renewea hope.
Just as Brlckley kicked this goal. Hard.
wick was knocked out cold. He was dis
covered lying upon his face as If tho llfo
had been knocked out of htm. He was
picked up by seveial 'Harvard players nnd
In a minute h was shaking his head
from side to side as If to get rid of the',

cheering all round the Stadium was terri

It didn't take long tor Hobey to kick
off and back rushed Hardwlck with the
ball to Harvard's 30 yard line, where
Shenk stood the Harvard man on his
head and then fell upon him. Brlckley
skirted the right end for three yards, but
as lt was not the psycologtcal moment
to smash Princeton to bits, Felton punted.
A great running catch by Hobey Baker
resulted, but he hesitated too long In
starting n run back and when O'Brien
crashed Into him with a fearful tackle,
the ball was on Princeton's 25 yard line.
De Witt's advance wasn't worth, a penny.
A double pass by Hobey Baker to Waller
was well planned, but Bradlee spoiled lt
wltft a thrilling tackle on Princeton's 20
yard line, the Tigers losing five yards.
De Witt punted to Gardner. He made the
memorable fair catch on Princeton's 47
yard line, from which Brlckley Immor
talized himself by kicking his phenomenal
goal from placement. This achievement
put Harvard In front by a score of 9 to 6.
Before play wss resumed the victorious
Crimson freshmen hurried to the side lines
where they were loudly cheered by their
delighted supporters. On tho klckoff,
Hobey Baker made a poor drive, Hitch
cock falling on the ball on Harvard's 30
yard line. Hardwlck gathered two yards
In a rush through Princeton's right wing
and Felton booted the ball to Hobey Baker
In puzzling style. The latter caught the
leather deftly, but again O'Brien pinned
him down before he could take a step on
Princeton's 25 yard line.
Baker's star had begun to set and
Princeton men could not suppress their
disappointment. Baker and Waller,
though following Princeton's wing shift,
could not make a bit of headway for Har
vard's forwards broke up the play aa If
It had been made of paper, showing su
perior strength and stamina. Harvard

Trying a fake kick Stew Baker man
aged to gain about two feet. That called
for another punt from De Witt and he
drove the ball out of bounds squarely
among the Princeton substitutes on the
bench. On a delayed pass Brlckley was
quickly stopped by Andrews for no gain,
but he tore a gaping hole In Princeton's
centre, wriggling like an eel to Princeton a
39 yard line.
Brlckler Doffs Headgear.
Brtckly threw off his headgear at that
stage of the proceedings as if to try an
other drop kick, but It was a fake and
Hardwlck twisted Into a hole for two
yards. Then Brlckley made a real attempt
at another field goal, but his protectors
failed to keep the Tigers off, with the
result that the kick was blocked. Half a
dozen players scrambled for possession of
the ball and luckily for Harvard It was
recovered by Hardwlck. The next moment
the ball was, lost on a fumble, which gave
Princeton another chance to yell. Up
against Harvard's defence Waller and De
Witt gamely dashed head first for a total
of four yards.
A quarterback run by Stew Baker came
near resulting successfully, for after the
Princeton backs had followed a shift
around Harvard's left end Baker suddenly
sprinted In the opposite direction. He was
coming down the field like a runaway colt
when suddenly Hardwlck, who had kept
his eyes open, made a dive for the little
Tiger and stopped further progress. ' It
was a tackle which likely prevented" a
Princeton touchdown and Hardwlck was
loudly applauded.
Discouraged by Harvard's defensive
tactics De Witt punted. Hardwlck made
the catch and threw off Andrews, but
tumbled to his knees. He scrambled up
and was legging It for all he was worth
when Penfleld checked him on 'Harvard's
32 yard line. Brickley came next with a
short drive through Princeton's centre, but
ho ran out of bounds at Harvard's 38
yard line.

ALL HARVARD BACKS SHINE;
BRICKLEY MOST CONSPICUOUS
CAMBRIDGE. Mass., Nov. 2.
.Brlckley was the most conspicuous of
all the backs, his three field goals being
the reason. " Until he was hurt and
left the game he Was tireless. His de
fensive play was better than his line
bucking. He 'wasn't any wonder at
cracking the opposing. line, but always
.a hard and willing worker. Hardwick
'was his superior at finding a hole and
.taking-it cleanly.- The whole back
field did valuable service in the sec
ondary defence, Bradlee and Hard
wick in particular. Harry Gardner!
at quarter, played the best game of
his career. His generalship was splen-.
did; he made scarcely a mistake. He
and Hardwick caught kicks all right
when they didn't allow them to nit
the ground. Gardner's, handling of
the pigskin from the centre was sure
and well timed.
Brickley, who retired from the
game, is "not seriously injured. He
will have a black eye and a few
scratches for several days. After
being taken to the - locker building
physicians found that no bones were
broken and he is apparentlyfall right
to-nignt.
fake kick Brlckley dodgeo or threw off
five Princeton tacklers and gained four
teen yards before he was stopped.
In another terrific scrimmage Brickley
was disabled. He lay on his back while
a trainer bathed his right eye with , a
sponge. Harvard men were fearful that
their star kicker had been put out 'of com
mission but Brickley soon Jumped back
Into the fray. The teams were on Har
vard's 40 yard line then and Felton, kick
ing with the left foot, propelled the oval
so far beyond Hobey Baker's reach that
the latter had to chase It. Baker Jtlg
gled the ball and was finally driven out
of bounds at Princeton's 20 yard line.
Harvard was turning on the pressure
In real earnest now and when De Witt
made a forward pass Brlckley loomed up
with a catch on Princeton's 30 yard line.
Here was Harvard's chance to clinch the
victory 'and nobody knew it better than
Quarterback Gardner, who was running
the team with splendid Judgment. Gard
ner ordered an attack of Increased power,
The Tigers at bay fought back for all they
wer worth. For once Harvard e assault
was checkmated. Brlckley and Hardwlck
could make no appreciable gain. Gard-
fellow players ns'ncr dropped back as If to kick and It was
a trick that worked well, for Brlckley
cut through a big hole to Princeton's 24
yard line. This advance offered another
opportunity for a goal from the field and
Brlckley standing on the 36 yard line sig
nalled for 4he ball. The Tigers broke
through, and Brlckley was so hurried that
he kicked the ball outside of the goal posts
to a corner of the field.
Tlarer Trick Worka.
De Witt on Princeton's 20 yard line,
prepared to make a forward pass. The
Harvard men, falling for the ruse, begnn
spreading out behind the scrimmage line.
This change of tactics paved the way for
a quarterback run by Emmons, who gained
six yards before Parmenter flung him
face downward on Princeton's 26 ynrd
line. When Waller tried to make headway
around Harvard's left end, Felton and
Hardwlck actually carried him back to
Princeton s 16 yard line for a loss of ten
yards.
De Witt's forward pass was caught by
Gardner on Princeton's 30 yard line and
without taking a breathing spell Brlckley
bowled Bluethenthul over for three yards.
Trumbull was taken out of Harvard's
line at that moment and Drlscoll was sub
stituted. As the latter failed to report to
the referee, Princeton received fifteen
yards for this violation of the rules. The
penalty moved the ball to Princeton's 40
yard line, and Brlckley. with remarkable
confidence In himself, tried to drop kick a
goal from the centre of the gridiron. He
had the wind at his back. and got the ball
away with plenty of power In his foot, but
the leather did not have, sufficient mo
mentum to reach' the mark fifty, yards
away. Putting the ball In play again at
Princeton's 20 yard line Waller was sent
through Harvard's right wing. Drlscoll
lifted htm off his feet and dragged him
back to Princeton's 12 yard line In such
a manner that the Harvard crowd
laughed.
De Witt resorted to a forward pass
which was a beauty, and Andrews, who
caught the ball, was tackled on Prince
ton's 29 yard line. A punt by De Witt
drove the ball out of bounds at the centre
of the field. Harvard's attack was under
full headway now and Brlckley ran irre
sistibly to Princeton's 32 yard line. Har
vard received flve yards for offside play
and after making another short gain
Brlckley once more tried a drop kick from
the 35 yard line, the ball missing one of
the posts by a mnrgln of three yards.
Hobey Baker was done for and left the
field, Pendleton succeeding him behind the
line. Strelt went to right end. Andrews
put the ball In play for Princeton with a
forward pass which Hardwlck caught and
ran back to tho Tigers' 30 yard line.
Hardwlck bowled Strelt over and rushed
around Princeton's rlght end to the 20
yard mark. He followed with a crashing
advance of two yards, the Tigers battling
manfully against the bombardment.
Two Men Laid Oat.
Brlckley slashed a hole through the left
wing and carried the ball to Princeton's
13 yard line. He had the wind knocked
out of him, but Jumped up still full of
fight. Parmenter, Harvard's centre, also
was sept to the hospital., Wlgglesworth
going Into the breach.
When play started again Hardwlck
pounded his way to Princeton's 11 ynrd
mark. He followed with n bone breaking
rush through the right wing and the ball
was four yards from Princeton's goal line.
Hardwlck's headgear was torn off In the
melee and Brlcklev wna arnanlnv tnr ale
fOardner hustled Harvard's attack, wltli
even greater speed, for the Tigers were
crumbling. Brlckley jammed his way to
the 2 yard mark and then to the 1 yard
line.
The Harvard men held a short confab
and Hardwlck was selected to make tho
touchdown. The Tigers were completely
foiled, for ns they centred their forces
upon Brjckley, who dashed toward their
left wing, Hardwlck sprinted the other
way and crossed the goal line practically
unopposed for the touchdown.
Hrlckley lay Insensible on the turf,
while for a moment the Harvard crowd
seemed to overlook him. The Harvard
players too were leaping off the ground
and hugging one another, while Hardwlck
was cheered again and again.
Suddenly, however, Brlckley attracted
his attention. He canie to his senses
quickly and was assisted to his feet. He
djd not want to leave the ground and
resisted the efforts of several players who
tried to lead him to .the sidelines. He
finally heeded the advice of the coaches,
p.nd staggering off the field he held his
hands, to his temples. Brlckley's right eye
seemed to have been Injured and his fuco
was covered with dirt.' As he reached the
side lines, he collapsed and was quickly
carried away-. Then Hardwlck kicked goal
from a difficult nngle and tho score was
Increased to sixteen to' six. Princeton
cheered Brickley out of sheer admiration.
There was only n minute left to play
and ufter Hardwlck Ijad kicked off An
drews was downed on Princeton's sixteen
yard line. Pendleton lost ground and n
Witt's forward. pass was caught by Gard
ner, who rushed the ball back to Prince
tpn's thirty-five yard line. Hardwick piled
on the agony with a flve yard attack and
the' Tigers seem to be -going to pieces.
K. Trenkmann had been called upon to
succeed .one of the, Princeton .line men
when the referee blew his whistle and
the struggle was over,.

BETTER TEAM THAN TIGERS
Forward Pass Only Thing That
Princeton Excels In and ,
That's Only Once.
Cambridoc, Mass., Nov. Z. In adminis
tering a clean cut and decisive defeat to
the Trlnceton Tigers to-day Harvafd waa
not only equipped with a hard fighting
and well rounded football team of, men.
but made the most of what qualities for
warfare tho Crimson possessed. The Har
vard combination was a good team ad
mirably handled. 'It was a superior eleven
to Princeton In practically every detail
except the forward pass, the latter
manceuvro being 'the only scoring play In
the Tiger repertoire. In successful use
of this play 'the Tigers surpassed the
Crimson, which, If It had-anything ln
that line, made little disclosure of It;
but even then' Princeton's successful use
of the forward pass was of short duration
and aa the game wore on Harvard was
catching more Princeton forward passes
than the Tigers were putting through.
A superior kicking game, splendidly
made use of, and a rushing game which,
although of narrower scope than Prince
ton's, was nevertheless more powerful
these were In, general the whyfore I of
Harvard's triumph. In the second half
the battle began to take on a decided
Crimson aspect. The Tigers held their
own In the first half, from which they
emerged ln the lead, but the relentless.
well directed and resourceful tactics of
Harvard, made possible by good general
ship and an alert- and active lot of Indi
viduals working In effective harmony,
overcame Princeton's resistance In the
second half, which was all Harvard.
The Tigers did not appear to have the
vim and pepper of last Saturday, but
that may bo because they were against
a team which was playing better. football
man tneir antagomsis-on ina oay. inero
were evidences on the field this afternoon
that the Cambridge players excelled their
gritty opponents In actual physical
strength, and In addition they were the
equals of their Nassau opponents In ac
tlvlty. When It came to bodily contact
and momentum, It was more otten I'rince
ton than Harvard that gave way, that
waa borne liack.
As a spectacle the game was most
attractive, for the ball swung from end
to end of the field often and quickly, this
being In part due to the' frequent kicking,
especially by Harvard, which eleven had
the moral couiage to stick to that plan
of operation In the face of what waa for
a while a contest with the Crimson
behind. Gaining a material advantage
from punting, Felton of Harvard far and
away outdoing De Witt of Princeton at
booting the leather, the Crimson cut loose
with Its rushing when within striking
distance and displayed good "judgment
In the times to apply the scrimmage at
tack. Yet the Tigers did fine and plucky de
fensive work In the shsdow of their own
goal posts and only once could Harvard
ram the ball over. The defensive playing
of both sides was, for" that matter, a
prominent development of the game. It
waa unexpectedly good. Two teams which
had been credited with an attack above
the ordinary encountered defence so stub
born and determined that If there had
not been other means than the running
game for tallying there would have been
much less scoring. Princeton's one score
was a touchdown due to two beautifully
executed forward passes, whereas nine
of the Harvard points were due to field
goals by the remarkable toe expert,
Brlckley, and the other seven were due
to' a touchdown and goal which were the
combined result of superior punting and
strong enough rushing to follow up an
advantage acquired by better punting.
In this matter of defence Harvard was
more rigid than Princeton, that Is to say.
It was better all over the field, better sus
tained throughout the game. Princeton's
was more clastic. H yielded more In the
open field, but tightened up stanchly when
near the goal line, and was at all times
stubborn, whether near to or far from
the goal line. Harvard's, defence was
vigilant and consistent to a marked de
gree, the Cambridge players being con
spicuously capable as diagnosticians of
Princeton designs, and fooled practically
not at all, except when the Tigers worked
two long oblique forward passes In two
different directions.
Individually, tactically, in pretty much
every respect. Harvard excelled. Her of
fence, barring a few minutes toward the
end of the game, when It .'as opened out,
did not have the lateral scope' of Prince
ton s, but It was a stirrer orrence at punc
turing the line than Princeton had. The
Tigers with their shift and the swift
darts of the backs had Harvard puzzled
and retreating for a while In the first
quarter, but after that the Crimson
smeared the Tiger rushes time and again
and had the latter at tho end of their re
sources as to means to advance the ball.
.Shifting to meet the Princeton shift
the Harvard forwards showed aptitude at
adapting themselves to Princeton's attack
and broke through so sharply that the
Tiger offence lost all Its sting. Whatever
the Prlnoeton attack may hnvo dono
against other teams to make it look for
midable, it was throttled to-day. Harvard
on offence often used 'the wheel shift of
last year and many a tlmo lt was sized
up and checked effectually by Princeton.
Hut at times Its ramming, compact power
sent a back through and Into the clear.
It took added power Just before the touch
down and, with the ball so covered up as
It passed from the centre to the quarter
back that It wasn't easy to see It, when
It did come to light It was slapped so
hard by the quarter Into the stomach of
the runner that It Is a wonder the latter's
wind wasn t Jarred out of htm.
Princeton suffered much from penalties
and from errors. Several times penalties
retarded the Tigers' progress or helped
Harvard's. Tho Princeton errors con
sisted chiefly of muffing punts and fum
bles. Hobey Baker and Pendleton, here
tofore clever at catching punts, did not
handle them well to-day. Maybe the un
accustomed conditions -of light and shade
and wind currents In tho towering
stadium bothered them, but In any event
Hobey Baker never appeared to worse ad
vantage than to-day. -Then again there
were n couple of poor passes by Bluethen
thul, generally a model of accuracy, and
altogether the Tigers played like a team
which was Just over tho edge of 'Its top
form, though, ns said. Harvard's strength
may have mado It look so.
Harvard's- tackling was better than
Princeton's and them, were, moments of
loose and missed tackling on both sides.
Harvard's, however, Improved and became
clean and hard, Hpth, Harvard and
Princeton showed an admirable spryness
In, following the .ball to the last, so that
generally there was somebody close t
hand-to mako up for a mUsod. tackle and
prevent tho quarry .from getting much ad
vantage through the medium, of a,, massed
tackle, rcrsisieni una ,aeicrminea iqi-
lowing of the ball was really a very
pretty feature of ,the game, Ho was the
lino spirit of sportsmanship that prevailed
and which was shared equally by 'bo'th
teams.
For the most part Harvard's rushes
were, directed Inside .of tncklo and .much
energy was wasted, by sending the run
ner too clore to- aha 'centre! Tho result
was a Jain of men with little ground
gained, ,Thcro .were, too, numerous Jams,
wlthout,gain wticn rrinceion attacked tne
Harvard centre. Possibly had Harvard
opened 'out the rushing, not gone in so
straight,' earlier, more ground would lhave
been gained. It was a wide oblique fight
that the Harvard runner took when he
made the touchdown well out toward the
extremity of the wing and through
Princeton's right wing. What Is called
the two men deeentlon was a favorite
Harvard method for making Its thrusts and
with the man with tho ball splitting off .,
from "the rest of the formation. The game
brought out nothing In new tactics hut
a lot In tactics nicely executed. It Isn't
often that a Harvard team Is as wr.J han
dled on the field and not many teatni h-.ve
surpassed the Crimson of to-day In foot-
bail sense. ,
In the early part of the rame Prince-
ton did a deal of rushing while the enemy
was content to conserve Its energies In
that respect and punt often. The early !'
part of the game found Harvard on the
defensive, but without any wear and tear
on stamina. At first the Harvard ends
didn't cover kicks well, but they Improved,
and the game In Its entirety considered
were down better than the Tiger ends.
None of the fleet Trlnceton backs ever
could get loose to any alarming extent In
trying to run back kicks. Nor could Har-
vard's.
Felton, the tall Harvard punter, not
only got better distance than De Witt of
Princeton but placed his drives better.
The Harvard' backfield caught kicks with "
more certainty than Princeton's but didn't
always try' to catch them. Often the Har-
vard backfield 'men deliberately allowed
the ball to strike tho ground and bounco
around until lt came to a aeaa stop, a
process whlcK would have been fatal ln
the late days of the onslde kick.
The work or rusning was preiur wen
distributed among the Princeton backs,
whereas Hardwlck and Brlckley did the
bulk of the work for Harvard. Wendell

Bradlee, who succeeded Wendell, was used
almost entirely as a aerensive Daca. ah
of the quarterbacks shared extensively In "
the work of advancing tne Dan, dui wun
little success. Quarterback stabs at tne
llne 'were like butting Into a stonewall,
especially as they butted mostly Into the
middle or the line, wnere ootn teams nun
a stout defence.
In team work, In the cooperation so
essential to success. It looked aa If Har- v
vard had more men In her plays than
Princeton, and this but emphasized the
sturdlness and aggressiveness of the
Princeton defence. Once Harvard had
got the hang of stopping the Princeton
shift plays It was much easier for them
to disintegrate the visiting attack than
for Princeton to disrupt the Harvard for
mations, which were solidly welded. And .,
when It came to getting the hostile run
ner Harvard had not only one, but two
and three men who located the ball and
mashed Into the runner through the
Interference.
It Wasn't until the second quarter that
Harvard had the ball ln Princeton terri
tory, and that followed a, poor punt by
De Witt on which the leather took an
erratic bound and caromed still further
back Ifito Trlnceton's domain. There was
some luck In that, but It was bad playing
which found Brlckley In position for his
second drop kick, which tied tho score.
Trlnceton lost tho ball close to her own
goal line on a poor pass and a fumble. ,
This was early In the second half and
was the beginning of the end. A superb
kick from placement by Brlckley sent
Harvard to the front nnd, with the latter
getting better all the time, Princeton
was outplayed thereafter every minute to
the finish. Harvard lost a chance or two
because Princeton was quicker at nailing
the lose ball on her own fumbles, but as
the game turned out that was an Incon
sequential detail.
The Princeton backs showed their usual
dash in getting started quickly, but time
and again were forced out to the side
lines on their sweeping flights and stopped
without gaining. They had more natural
speed than the Harvard backs, but didn't
keep going as. well. The men In Crimson
continued on better, not holding their feet
any .too well, but now and then picking
themselves up when down and adding
extra feet. '" ,
Brlckley was the most conspicuous of
all the backs', his three field goals being
the reason. Until he was hurt and lett
the game, he was tireless. His defensive
play waa better than his line Ducaing. lie
wasn't anV wonder at cracking the oppos
ing line, but always a hard and willing
worker. Hardwlck was ms supericr ni
finding a hole and taking It cleanly. The
whole backfield did valuable servlci In
the secondary defence, Bradlee and Hard
wlck ln particular. Harry uaraner at
quarter played the best game of his
career. Ills generalship was splendid :
he made scarcely a mistake. He and
Hardwlck caught kicks all right when
they didn't allow them to hit the ground.
Gardner's handling of the pigskin from
the centre was fcure and well timed.
The best back on the Prlnoeton side was
Waller. He played a fine game. He hit
the line harder than any of his mates and ,
was wide awake and resolute. It was
he who scrambled over for a touchdown
after a deft catch of a forward pass. He
was In all the plays and performed
strongly throughout. Capt. Pendleton also
did' good work. He picked his route with
nice Judgment and made the most of his
Interference. He was good on the defence
and fast, very fast, under punts when he
went to the end of the line. Neither Stew
art Baker, the quarterback, nor Emmons,
his successor, measured 'up to Gardner as
a auarterback. They figured more exten
sively In the offence because they ran with
the ball oftener. But with Harvard men
on top of them all tho time, they bad
small chance to clear the scrimmage line
either straight through or streaking for
the extremities.
De Witt was nothing like the effective
unit he wns In the Dartmouth game. He
was outpunted , and he made little Im
pression at hitting tho line. Hobey Baker,
when he went In. fell far below his normal
gait. His handling of kicks was uncer
tain and he was smothered when he tried
to run them back, getting loose only once.
He hesitated about which way to go and
lost valuable time. He waa enveloped In
a cloud of onrushlng Harvard men and
did not shoot forward with a swift start
us is his wont.
Princeton wns outplayed In the line.
There wns more unison In the Harvard
charge. Both Coolldge and O'Brien, at
right end for Harvard, outplayed Andrews
of Princeton. The latter, however, made
himself useful with his forward passing.
O'Brien was the best of the ends getting
down on punts. He followed the ball
closely and tackled flawlessly. Coolldge's
defensive line play was tip top, and Fel
ton gave a mighty good account of him
self for one who did so much kicking.
In line duties he held his own with the
four ends who at various times opposed
him.
There was a corking tussle between
Hitchcock and Phillips at tackle. The
Prlncetontans did yeoman service and
ranged over an endless expanse of terri
tory. It was nip and iuck Detween mm
nnd Hitchcock on the breaking through
proosltlon. They were a standoff there,
and both spoiled plays behind the line,
but Phillips went down better under kicks
and always was with the ball. Once he
circled -around from behind the downed
Harvard man who was trying to run
back a kick. It, was a brilliant Instance
of ball following.
At the other tackle position swrer or
liarviini had the better of it, was too
agile1 and quick In sensing the opposlpg
play for Penfleld ana iiaiun, nis oppo
sites. He made some good holes for the
n,i. with the 'ball, his opponent being
shut out of tho pioy when Hardwlcl: went
