.players, who faced each other last
Thanksgiving met and shook- hands.
The best 6f friendly spirit was shown
between the gridiron warriors, whtlo tho
officials and captains were conferring
In tho middle of tho field.
Captain Wylle. Lehigh's leader, met
Cap'taln Dalley, tho Blue And Gray
general, shook hands and then prepared
to guess the toss of the coin.
Lehigh looked fullv the equal In slzo
of their opponents. Tho Pennsylvania
backflcld loomed ud taller and bulkier
than little Fury and Costello. Only
l)ave White, Georgetown's huge full
,back, appeared a match for the Lehigh
, 'man opposed 'to him.
In the Una Lettish's nlaycrn wero
' i as large and heavy as Georgetown's.
I Especially In the center of the line did
J Lehigh look powerful, well ablo to with-
' stand the attack of the light George-
-j town backs. Great, tall guards loomed
' j up In the forefront of Lehigh's lino and
,jj manv a Blue and Gray adherent noted
.,' this with a little sinking of the heart.
. On the wings, however, there was
more of a match. Wayne Hart and
i ''Skip" Wymard. Georgetown's tackles,
i wero as big as their opponents, and so
, wero Jack Hegarty and Charlie Bergen
' l on tho ends.
I Fazzetti Has Edge.
Pazzettl, Lehigh's sterling quarter
back, of whom great things were ex
pected, was1 taller and heavier than
llttlo Billy Sltterdlng. That didn't causo
, Sltterdlng any worry, however, and ho
went about his work with great cool
, ' aess.
In the first few minutes of play it
was seen that Georgetown had been
especially prepared for this last battle
on the Hilltop for 1911. New plays had
, been taught tho eleven. New forma
tions, something not seen before this
1 year, were pulled off with amazing
speed and accuracy. Georgetown had
beon "pointed" for this game. Not for
nothing had Coach Neflsen witnessed
. last Saturday's contest between Lehigh
' 1 and Lafayette. Ho had sco.i much, and
I was prepared for It all.
i Georgetown showed good speed on at
'' tack, and that defensa allowrd nothing
'' to get away from It. When Wayne Hart
' dived Into the Lehigh Interference the
-. first time It was aimed In his direction,
spilling It In all directions, a cheer arose
from the Blue and Gray sections that
must have done his heart good.
Tho earjy part of tho gamo was bit-
terly fought In every position, each man
figuring that tho victory depended upon
him alonb. Hart and Dalley and Mike
t- Cunnlff and Bryant and wymard per
formed deeds of surpassing valor, stop
ping plays of every description.

GOVERNOR MANN TO
SEE VIRGINIA GAME
From Private Box Will Watch Contest Today At Rich
mond for Southern Title Both Elevens
Ready for Stiff Contest.
RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 30. The Vir
ginia squad, accompanied by an ad
vance guard of moro than a hundred
rooters, arrived in Richmond last night
and today are quartered at the Jefferson
Hotel, resting up in preparation for tho
game with Carolina at the local base
ball park this afternoon. Tho Carolina
team blew Into town later In tho even
ing and engaged rooms at the same
hotel. Interest In tho game hero Is
high and indications point to tho largest
crowd in history.
For tho past four years Virginia has
come out on the long end of the score
In tho gamo with her rival for Southern
athletic honors. In 1907 a slnglo point
determined the winner, score 12 to 11.
The following year Vlrglna scored the
most decisive victory In years, with 31
points to blank for their opponents.
In 1909 the combat was called off
owing to the death of Player Christian
of the Vlrglna cloven, who was killed
In tho game vlth Georgetown tho week
before. Last season, with the odds
against them, the Charlottesville tribe
again camo out victorious by 7 to 0.
This season the teams appear to bo
evenly matched, and ono of tho best
games In years Is looked for. Com
parative weights show Virginia to have
a slight advantage of two and ono-half
pounds. However, Carolina makes up
for this In comparative axes, averaging
a year moro than her adversary. In
ncignt mo averages snow bout teams
at five feet nine inches. Furthermore.
each team has the service of four vet
erans, although Carolina has a alight
advantage in this respect, with two
men who havo seen threo years of serv
ice at the school.
Both teams have established envlablo
records thus far this year. Virginia
haB suffered two defeats, while Caro
lina has yet to lose a game. However,
this can bo accounted for In the fact
that the former has played agalnet
moro formidable teams. Virginia lost
to Georgetown, and the record also
shows a dofeat marked against her at
the hands of Bwarthmore. However,
the latter gamo Is generally looked upon
as a victory for the Orange und nluo
In view of a poor decision hunded down
by an official, which practically snatch
ed awny a well-earned victory.
Today's game will be graced by the
presence of a number of persons -f
high rank in Southern society. Gov
ernor Mann and his staff aro expected
to view the game from a private box on
the Virginia side, and his presence
should add greatly to tho occasion as
a social event. The governor Is an
ardent Vlrelnla adherent and makes a
practice of attending the Thnnksgtvlrg
game. Tiie outcome or tne gamo is in
doubt. Neither sldo is claiming a vic
tory, and tho coaches refuse to talk.
This fact gives rise to a claim that
the game will be one of tho most n
tereetlng ever played on a Southern

Lehigh's eleven will seek today to

G to 3 defeat of last season, when Harry
Costello ran around tho entire visiting
team for the lono touchdown of the
afternoon. Price, who kicked a field
goal for Lehigh that day. Is not play
ing this year, but the team is big and
confident of winning from the Blue and
Coach "Bossy" Relter. the old Prince
ton star, now a professor of physical
culturo at Lehigh, expeots great things
from his crack quarterback, Pozzottl,
today on tho Hilltop. This young man
has been tho star of every game no
has played this season. If ho gets half
a chance, he will go careering off
around the ends on trick plays, gener
ally from fake kick or forward pass
formations. Then, too, Pazzettl Is a
kicker of field goals. If he can drivo
his team to within scoring distance to
day, he may endeavor to rival Harry
Costello as tho real drop-klcker of tne
Hilltop. This fast quarterback runs
well with the ball, Is a suro tackier on
defenso In tho backflcld, handles punts
cloanly, and a good brokcn-fleld run

Should Be Battle.
Georgetown's strongest forwards are
Hart and Wymard, at tho tackles, but
the Lehigh men, Dayton and Bailey,
should force them to tho limit today.
All four tackles are fast, hard to box,
get Into all plays on oflense, and are
stlro on defense. It should be a great
contest In these positions.
Tho Lafayette game last week took a
lot out of the Lehigh eleven, though,
and this is cxpecttd to have Its effect
on the playing of the team today.
Georgetown has been resting. Just put
ting in enough work to keep on edge
for this final battle of the season, whilo
the visitors havo hardly had time to re

Western High Defeats Sten
ographers In Final
Scoring for the first time in any game
of the present interscholastlo football
eerles, Business High School was de
feated by 18 to 5 at tho hands of West
ern In the final game of tho 1911 school
schedule at Cathedral School grounds.
The Stenographers' touchdown, which
was not accompanied by a goal, was tho
first time the Business ball had been
carried across Its opponent's goal lino for
five points hlnce the season of 1908.
Business' best playing of tho year
was done In the second period of yester
day's game, when tho Orange and Blue
huskies took a brace and tore off heavy
gains. Tho Stenographers effected a
line shift that completely baffled West
ern for a while, but after the formation
had been worked a few times Western
changed Its style of attack and tho tide
Stono and Howard probably performed
tho best for Western, while honors aro
equally divided .among "Reds" Wilson,
Derrick, and Flax, of Business. Tho
latter directed tho game well for the
Stenographers, using very good tactics
when his team was pressed to the goal
Buck Howard, Western's speedy back
fieldsman, featured the game by Inter
cepting a forward pass from Moulneaux.
Little ground was gained, however, by
Howard, as Flax downed him before
much headway had been gained. Some
of the best forward passes seen among
high school players this year were exe
cuted In yesterday's gamo between
Business and Western.
