Battle of Lake Georgetown Victory for Tech and Board
of Education "Merry Time Was. Had" During
Parley Over Conditions of Field.
The battle of Lake Georgetown be
tween the heavily armored dreadnought
"Wilson and the combined fleet of Tech
and the Board of Education, resulted In
a victory for the allied parties. Before
leaving the scene of engagement tho
Wilson was allowed to salute Its flag
before surrendering, and promised an
other chance on Friday.
If there everwas a supposed gridiron
in horrible shape on the day on which a
fame was supposed to be played, It was
Georgetown Field yesterday afternoon
when Tech and Central were supposed
to meet to decide scholastic honors in
football. A sheet of water, In places
three Inches Meep, covered the whole
stretch, While 'a heavy fog mode it diffi
cult to recognise a person tJlfty yards
away, 1-" '
At noon a conference was held to de
cide whether there should bo a post
ponement, nnd it was decided to go
i.irough with the arrangement made ten
days ago. When the field was reached,
however, an argument started that
lasted the greater part of an hour.
Central insisted that the game be
played, while Tech pleaded for a calling
off. Before the dispute was well under
wav it was being taken part in by mem
bers of the Board of Education, prlncl
?ia)B of schools, teachers, coaches, col
ege students, pupils In the schools, cap
tains of teams, substitutes, officials for
the came, and newspaper men.
Wrapped la Blankets.
Wrapped up In blankets, the Central
equad trotted on the field, and went
immediately to Its benches on the east
Bide, where It sat all during the spir
ited discussion. Central players were
turning to play, but Tech's squad was
not allowed to leave Its bus.
Some of the language hurled back and
forth bctweon the contending parties
would not make proper Inscriptions for
a stained glass window tn a cathedral,
but when everybody had gotten thor
oughly soaked and gotten most of the
talk out of their systems, the game was
postponed until Friday at 2:30 o'clock.
The principal concern or Central la in
keeping the team primed for two days
longer. The opinion of the coaches was
that tho team had reached the height of
Its physical fitness vesterdav, and it was
for that reason that Central persisted In
That the condition of tno field would

was along these lines that Tech argued,
and finally won.

subject: .. .
"Some years ago I recall reading in an
educational Journal an Item which ran
something like this: 'After an American
youth has spent twelve vears in public
school, four years In college and three
j-ears In a professional school he ought
to know something about football.' The
writer of the article did not say how
long after he would know that some
thing about football.
"In fact, after all the experience nnd
several vears coaching, I feel n little
shy on the present game after an ab
sence from the coaching staff at Har

"Tho reformers have changed the
game out of all resemblance to the orig
inal game as played a decade ago The
game Is no longer a test of cither In

test of training or endurance. The rules
against helping the runner In anv way

Gallaudet Eleven to
Be Tendered Dance
The undergraduates of Gallaudet
College, according to a cherished cus
tom dating from time immemorial,
will give the 1911 Gallaudet eleven
and substitutes a dance Friday even
ing, December 1, at the east side col
lege. An excellent program has been
arranged for that evening by Chair
man Gardner, '12, and his efficient
associates of the undergraduates'
committee on arrangements, and
every effort will be made to honor the
Buff and Blue gridiron warriors ap
propriately and to give a pleasant
time to the alumni, undergraduates,
and others attending the event.
Gallaudet closed her football sea
son with the game against Maryland
Agricultural College last Saturday at
College Park, and tho announcements
of tho Buff and Blue eleven's choice
for 1912 captain and of the awards of
letters "G" are nwalted with great
Interest. The names of the 1912 cap
tain and players awarded the coveted
letters bv the board of directors wl'.l
be formally announced during the In
termission of the football dance by
President Harris, '12. of the Athletic
Association. President Perclval Hall
of Gallaudet College and ex offllo
member of the faculty athletic com

varsity letters to the eligible ath

the versatile Indian, left end, who had
to resign leadership in favor of
"Hub" West. '12, two weeks ago, will
be re-elected football captain for
1912, as this is liis Junior year at

liant game at his position.

Haughton Upholds the
Decision of Referee
CAMBRIDGE, MaBs.. Nov. 29. All day
there has been much to dlnctus con
cerning the Harvaid-Yale football game
Saturday, but nothing of mon Interest
than tho niles of the game regarding
the scoring of n safety touchdown.
Saturday Camp, cf Yale, made a for
ward pusd from behind his own goal
line, and it was Incompleted when
Avery, the left end, muffed tho ball a
few yards out In the plalng field. One
of the rules defining n safety savg that
one shall bo sco-ed when a player of

a forward pass behind his own goal
line. Camp's forvriud pass wn made
from behind hla goal line all right, but
when the pass was incompleted tho
bull was in the flsld of play. R05.tr.llng
this point the following statement was
Issued by Head Coach Percy D. Haugh
ton, of the Harvard team, yesterday:
"Owing to tho mnny Inquiries that I
have recolved regal ding the decision
t ordered when Yale nttempted a for
waid pass from behind her own goal
line it seems ndvliable to ttita franklv
that Harvard is entirely In accord wl'h
"Ve have always held that lulo '!.
section 9, or this year's rulo, indor
which the qufcsi.o.i arises, referred only
tc a fotword pass which strikes the
ground behind tho goal line, if there
were nny question as to tho xact
meaning of this nil, however, all doubt
would be removed bv rule 19, rccilon 4.
wlili h provides that when a forward
pa?s hits tho ground within the fluid
cf play, as did Camp's pass Saturdav,
the ball "bill bt reliirnml to the spot
of the preceding down and the pipy
shall count as a down.
"Thus It seems, und always has beon
cur opinion, that rule 6 has no applica

caused the discussion.
"I flucercly truft that this statement
will close a most unforlunato ntid un
necessary discussion regarding the in

Schoolboy Elevens to

Everett High, of Everett, Mass., was
chosen until Its tie game with Somer
vllle High, of Somervllle, Mass., and
then St. John's, looked upon generally
as the champion school eleven of New
England, was picked. The Eastern
team averagea 157 pounds and eighteen
years old. No player weighs more than
180 pounds, or Is more than twenty
one years old. These conditions are
similar to those here. St. John's has
scored 14S points, holding Its opponents
Dean Academy endeavored to come
here, representing the East, but It was
learned that It had two years of col

of its players were more than twenty

Greater Boston championship, but did
not seem strong enough to put up a
good battle witn uaK .rarK.

While Georgetown and Lehigh are
struggling on the gridiron on the Hill
top tomorrow, the great classic of Phil
adelphia will be In action on Franklin
Field, tho annual battle between Cornell
and Pennsylvania. Since 1893 theso two
old rivals have met on tho football field
yearly and In all that time the Ithacans
have won Just one victory from tho Red
and Blue. ,
In 1901 Woodruff had about the worst
eleven ever ,put out by Pennsylvania
and it went down to defeat before Cor
nell by a score of 24 to 6. This Thanksgiving-downfall
ended Woodruff as n
coach at Penn, too. In 1906 neither team I
scored, but not since that date has
a Cornell eleven done as well against
Penn, though managing to score every

elevens have come down to Franklin
Field, touted as sure winners and backed
to tho Inst cent that could be scraped
together by thousands of students and
graduates, only to fall before the sons
of William Penn. Something snaps in
the mental machinery of tho Ithacans
when thoy face the Quakers. As a re
sult out of eighteen contests, sixteen
havo been defeats.
Cornell Not Confident.
This year Cornell is not confident of
success. Head Coach Dan Reed says
that ho can't see how hla eleven can
do better than hold the score down to
a decent size. This Is said, too, In the
faco of the wretched season of the
Penn team. Penn has lost four games
out of the last five, winning only from
Lafayette, and yet Cornell, victorious
over Michigan, cannot get up enough
courage to look for victory from tho
eleven defented nt Ann Arbor. Thus
Is tho Influence of years of dereat mir
