Yale and Princeton will piny the game
this afternoon that will hold the centre
of the football atage, although there are
other bin contests down for tleelalon. The
Harvard-Partmouth game la on a plane
with the Bulldog-Tiger affair In Impor
tance, and other battles of more than
usual Interest are numerous. Among
these are the Perm-Carlisle scrap, the an
nual clash between Amherst and Williams
and leser but what promise to be bitter
struggles Iwtwrcn Syracuse and Colgate,
Cornell and Michigan and Weslcynn and
Trinity. The llarvurd-Yale freshman
game also will be played, and Harvard
hopes of winning this tilt are as high as
of taking the varsity battle with the Blue
a week hence.
The football season closes for the Tigers
to-day, and this Is their supreme moment.
Though defeated by Harvard, their objec
tive Is the Yale game and much would be
forgiven for the recent setback at Cam
bridge If the Blue could be lowered. There
have been two weeks of careful prepara
tion since the Harvard game, preparation
consisting of trying to eradicate faults
shown In that context and a general pol
ishing up to get ready for Kit.
Heports from Princeton the last few
days have .betokened neither any growth
of confidence nor, on the other hand, any
decrease of It. There has been a good
deal of quiet confidence among Princeton
follo-vers. 'but without any fuss those In
Immediate charge of the eleven have gone
about making It nt strong as possible,
and If possible bringing It up to a more
effective form than It has yet reached.
Whether the Tiger team waa at the top
of Its stride against Harvard or whether
It was capable of Improvement will be
een to-day: but in either event It la diffi
cult to judge what will be done against
Yale for the reason that what Yale is
capable of doing this afternoon Is a prob
lem. Vale Is mors of an unknown quantity
than Princeton, except .that In general
Princeton's offence has been better and
Yale's defence better. The tenor of the
reports of Yale's drill this week Is to the
effect that there has been a sudden ac
cess of confidence at New Haven, .lust
what foundation exists for this hopeful
frame of mind apparently depends on
what has been shown In the secret prac
tice this week. Much depends on w hether
the material has awakened and got to
gether and is realizing on Its native abil
ity; but If a really strong and concerted
offence has been developed big advances
must have been made in the two dajs
this week which were devoted to Impart
ing a real offence. Certainly In their
public appearances the Klis haven't shown
any Impressive all around strength In
attack, or the resourcefulness of Prince
ton. Perhaps they haven't shown their
full hand at any tune and also perhaps
much has ben done this week. The de
fence has been good all treason so fur as
scoring by opponents Is concerned, and
If the team discloses all around strength
to-day It will disclose what so far has
not been on view.
Faults which have been seen In Yale's
play throughout the season will be very
serious this afternoon If the score hap
pens to be close and the result hinging
nu what points are possible from a single
core. The team has more actual physl
cil power than Princeton, but has not
displayed tho latter' n alertness and keen
ness to act on a rival's mistakes, the
handling of the ball by Yale lias not been
tth clean as Princeton's, and a great draw
back at Yale all season has been to tlnd
a quarterback who could Impart thn
proper drive to the team' and keep Hit
men on their toes. Th Inexperienced
Wheeler runs the team with more ginger
and dash than any other quarter at New
Haven, and It Yale really has the plays
and power a good deal depends on the
ability of the quarterback to bring it
out. to see that It doesn't remain latent.
What Princeton can do on the football
field cornea nearer to being a matter of
public knowledge than what Yale can do,
and among the plays In which the Tigers
have evidenced lite more proficiency Is the
forward pass. Both offensively and de
fensively thtt play has bothered Yalo rnoro
thtn It has the Tigers. There Is no tuclt
thing an a", dependable defence against the
forward pass, and one of the ways to off
set un opponent's forward pass Is to have
u good one youreelf. Princeton has a
pretty good one, whereas we are all In
the dark ubout Yale's.
Maybe the Klls aren't depending on tho
plav and believe they can gain tho neces
sary ground by "lifting It out In the line"
and again maybe they can do as they did
i when the funvurd pass was first in use.
It will be lemembered that they didn't
show ii. thine In that line until the final
game wllb Harvard, when Veeder and
Alcott manipulated the longest and most
effective forward pass of the year and
brat Harwld with It, That, however, was
another year. It is the teams of compre
hensive proficiency and alertneaa that are
achieving successes this year. Theso qual
ities have not been much to the front at
New Haven this full, but many's the Yalo
team that has had them to a degree when
thn final test cunie.
At. to Kicking, Princeton, with Dn Witt
punting nt hlx normHl rate and not fall
ing down as lie did against Harvard, looks
to have the better of the Klis, Klynn can
jmiit us fur hm l)e Witt, but Is erratic.
..i reielxlug punts Princeton lias made

mints there I little choice, on public
rutin, an to the ability of tho forwards to

Princeton In this department If he doesn't

Is a good general and has the advantage
over Wheeler In having been through the
fire of a big game. Wheeler's biggest
game waa against West Point and then
he displayed nerve and spirit.
But whether hncks be good, fair or In
different, they need a strong rush line to
assist them In making use of their prowess.
The Yale line is the heavier of the two
and that, It goes without saying, wilt be
an advantage If activity and a good charge
so with It. Thn end play on neither side
lias been above reproach, but It Is likely
that the ends on both sides will play bet
ter to-day than at any previous time. The
Yale linn has been strengthened by tho
teappearanre of Bomelsler, and Wight of
Princeton has been coming along rapidly.
Avery, or Oallauer and Andrews, the other
ends, aren't quite as good, but Avery did
first class work last year In the big games.
Yale expects a good deal from her
tackles, Talbot and Warren, big, active,
rangy men, but neither has played any
better than Princeton's left tackle, Phil

The Pilnceton guards, Khenk and Iogan,

centres In the game will face each other
Ketcham of Yale and HlueO.enthal of
Princeton. Blucthenthal excelled Ketcham
last year In passing, but each is a fine
player, following the ball closely, quick
ut sizing up plays and making tackles all
over the field. The Yalo centre covers
more ground than any other middle man
and pluya the game with unremitting vigor.
The battle will be called at 2 o'clock
and the officials will be: W. S. Langford,
Trinity, referee; Nell Snow, Michigan,
umpire: Lieut. H. M. Nelly, U. 8. A.,
Harvard has only one more hurdle to
scale before meeting Yale. Dartmouth Is
the hurdle and a big one, but the Crim
son has given a good account of Itself all
season and expects to do so this after
noon. There la no reason why Dartmouth,
with her speed and power, shouldn't give
the Crimson the hardest sort of a game,
but to do that the (Ireen generalship must
be of the first grade and the ball must
h? handled cleanly. Being their last game,
the Hanoverians can cut loose with all
they know. They will have to know a lot
to beat Harvard, which team la strong
on football sense and has a fine, cool,
ready poise, which Is not quite equalled by
any other team. Harvard has her team
In tiptop condition and can put her full
strength In the field. If the Cambridge
men can win without exerting themselves
to the limit they will do so and conserve
energy as much as Dartmouth will per
mit for the Yale game. However, for the
moment Harvard's attention Is centred on

hopeful that the puissant Indians can be
overcome. Penn will have to play much
better football than at any other time
this year to stop the braves- but Is play
ing better than heretofore. If the Indians
get that scoring machine of theirs started
no team In the country can stop them,
but a team that can fight them hard
enough to hold. them to a low scoro has
a chance to beat them iby taking away
some of their confidence and so worrying
them. The Indian defence Is variable, but
that doesn't bother them If they ean make

Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 15. Cold, crisp
fall weather was welcomed by the Har
vard football rilen to-day. They hav been
slow to come bark to normal weight since
the Princeton game and have played
mighty little football for two weeks. Only
on hard scrimmage lias been held slnco
the Tigers left the stadium, and with the
Dartmouth game at hand the roaches are
not at all certain how their eleven will
"come back." To-morrow Harvard will be
outweighed by the Hanover eleven, which
Is believed to have Improved a lot since
It played at Princeton three weeks ago.
liar yard's team will be the same as It
was against the Tigers, except that Capt.
Wendell Is expected to be In the lineup fur
at least half of the game, and Drlscols
will take Trumbull's place at right guard.
Trumbull was laid low to-day with an
attack of muscular rheumatism and wns
taken to the .Sllllman Infirmary, which Is
the college hospital. The change In the
lino will nut weaken Harvard much. Dils
coll Is not as active and lively as Trum

pounds leas than Drlsroll and the extra
weight will go fur toward decreasing the
difference botween the Harvard and Dart
To-day It had not been determined
whether O'Brien or Dana will start the
game at right end. hut the cold weather
should help O'Brien'a condition and the
chances are that he will lw In his usual
place on the right wing. The Crimson did
little work to-day. There waa a good ses
sion for the kickers and some work was
done on handling kicks and affording pro
tection for Hrlckley and Felton. There
waa also the usual signal drill, but It Is
unlikely that Harvard will use against
Dartmouth any of the special attack that
Is being developed for Yale.

The Tiger eleven put on the finishing
touches for the battle with a light signal
drill on the varsity, gridiron this after
noon. The men were on the field only a
little over three-quarters of an hour and
devoted the entire time to their formation
and the signal drill. De Witt, Waller and

from the noise and bustle, of the central
part of the campus and the main streets
of the city.
The general feeling among the followers
of the Orange and Black to-night was one
of optlmlslm. hut not confidence. The
Princeton men feel that their team did not
show Its true form In the game with Har
vard and that on a dry field It will stand
an even chance of winning. As has been
the case throughout the season, the Tigers
will rely almost entirely on their speed and
aggressiveness to overcome the disadvan

be that It will be the result of outfighting
Indications here to-night point toward a
perfect day for the game. It Is cold and
there Is a medium northwest wind blow
ing, tending to dissipate any fears of rain
before to-morrow. The condition of Unl
vetslty Field this afternoon also was fav
orable. The ground was slightly moist
and a little soft In spots, but far from
soggy nnd If the wind continues to-night
the turf should dry out entirely by sun
tlse. There has been a noticeable scarcity of
Yale money In town to-night, but It un
doubtedly will be plentiful to-morrow.
Princeton men seem perfectly willing to
bet at the prevailing odds, which are
varying from 10 to 8 down to in to 7 In
favor of Yale.
Spare tickets are hard to find, every
seat In tho stands having been sold for
over a week, but a limited number nf
standing room tickets will be placed on
aale to-morrow morning. It Is estimated
that close to 35.000 will see the game.
The coaches still are maintaining their
noncommittal policy and refused to give
out any official lineup to-night. There Is
every reason to believe, however, that tho
Tigers will take the field as follows: An
drews, left end; Phillips, left tackle:

New Haven. Conn., Nov. 15. With

afternoon with the varsity lined up as It
will 1m- against Princeton. There was a
short hut snappy signal drill with Nate
Wheeler 111 as quarterback.
The general Impression ner Is that Yale
will win, but liettlng so far Is even. To

of such widely different character can be,
and furthermore It Is exciting an Intense

Last year the title lay between two
Msnhsttan teams. Commerce and Clin

Brooklyn and Manhattan and the enthus
iasm Is all the more widespread. Only
within the past thrre years have the Msn
hsttan elevens been able to compare fav
orably with bigger and stronger Brooklyn
aggregations. For thst reason there Is
an extra Incentive for Commerce to win.
t-ommerce win start wun a consiaeraoie
advantage over her rival In regard to
weight, but the development and, training
of the two teams has been based upon
that difference and In thst way the In
equality tends to be minimized. Msnusl

noon than she had a week ago with Dc

skilful. Manual will have difficulty In

Commerce players long enough lo operate

The open gam will be Manual's main

pend almost entirely upon the nccurate

the forward pass and upon the skill of
her drop kickers. Commerce realizes this
and Coach Slsklnd has been drilling his

Is the most dangerous man In this con
nection, and at least two plavers will be
detnlled throughout the lams to tag after
this formidable back and keep him out
of the way aa much as possible.
The greatest point of strength In the
Commerce team Is Blodgett. He is ex
pected to tear loose with his customary
battering ram line plunges, and unless
Manual can check him with better suc
cess than she did the De 'Witt Clinton
tackle plays It will go hard with her. It
Is on tbe.e points that many followers of

a shade the better of the fray. Freer will
be absent from the Munhattan lineup, but
this loss Is not nearly so serious as that
of Charlea and Ackerman to Manual.

Won by 14 to T.
The speedy Adelphl football team de
feated Poly Prep by a score of 14 to
T yesterday at Washington Park. The
learns were very evenly matched, but Poly
lacked the confidence that Adelphl had.
Poly made several costly fumbles. Adslphl
became dangerous In the fltst few minutes
after Du Tremblay was unable to kick
on thn fourth down because of a poor
pass by Nenrohr. Adelphl kept the ball
mound Poly's 20 yard line for the rest of
the quarter, but was unable to score. In
Hit second quarter Poly had slightly the
better of It, but never was dang.-rous. The
only way It was nhlo to gain was by
straight line plunging.

Tremblay. He ran for a touchdown and
then kicked the goal. Shortly after this
Drlggs recovered a fumble by Meenon and
ran the ball bark IB yards, to the 25
ntd line. By straight bucks he brought
the ball to the 3 yard line, but was unable
to push It over. Poly kicked nut of dan
ger and D. Alfotd ran the ball back fifteen
yards. Drlggs gained twenty-five yards
on a delayed pass and Adelphl again
had the bull on Poly's 3 yard line. For
three downs Poly h,eld, but on the last
down Drlggs scored from a line shift.
Poly suddenly begnn playing like de
mons In the latter part of the fourth quar
ter and quickly advanced the ball to
Adelphl's 25 yard line. Du Tremblay again
tried a forward pass. This one netted ten
yards and on tho next down he made an
other to Cockran for a touchdown, aieason
kicked the goal. Drlggs kicked off to
