Harvard is the logical favorite in
its annual clash with Yale, both on
comparative scores and the man-for-man
rating of the team. The linemen
are nearly on a par, Yale having a
possible shade, but this is offset by
the wonderful Harvard backfield.
Brickley, Hardwick, Man an and
Logan comprise about the best back

The game will result in a contest
between a star back field and a
strong defense. Yale was able to
cover up the best efforts of the light
and speedy Princeton backs, but the
Tigers did not have four men In a
class with the Harvard crew.
If the game was between Western
teams of equal rating Harvard would
be at once picked to win, and by a
couple of touchdowns. But that isn't
the way the game is played in the
East. On the seaboard the elevens
are more conservative and refuse to
take chances. They will not put the
game In the balance on one play,
with a touchdown as the reward if it
goes through and their own goal en
dangered as the penalty of failure.
That is one reason for the numerous
tie scores in the East and the fre
quency with which games are won
over the aerial route.

If, by any chance, Yale should win,

The latest bickering to spring up
in the National League is another
evidence of the difference between
the way things are done in the Na
tional and American leagues.
National players are so used to
hearing of their owners fighting and
being parsimonious that they grow
the same way themselves. They have
had the example set them for years,
and it is not surprising that they
should follow it.
Pitchers Jim Vaughn, Eddie Stack
and Earl Moore, who were not with
the Cubs throughout the season,
were each given half, a share of the
spoils when the West Siders divided
the city series proceeds. They were
peeved. Vaughn was especially dis
pleased, as he pitched and won half
of the games taken by the Cubs from
the Sox. The three .men made a kick
to the National Commis'sion, de
manding a full share of the plunder.
