Princeton and Yale have burned their
bridges behind them In their determina
tion to play nothing but open, advanced
football. Both Coach Tendleton, of
Princeton, and Coach Hinkoy, of Yale,
declare that they have abandoned the
conservative game and Intend to stand
or fall by the open game. This Is in
deed welcome news, because it can't be
denied that In the past the games be
tween these two teams have been fre
quently nbout as dull as most Army.
Xavy games, with the two teams afraid
to open up.
Apparently the coaches of both Insti
tutions have awakened to the fact that
In developing the possibilities of open
football their predecessors have only
scratched the surface. There's a lot of
truth in this. For one tiling, they have
been too much afraid of losing posses
sion of the ball to try much else but
close formation plays, varied by an oc
casional forward pas, though most of
the forward passes hae been used as a
