Earlier In tho year It was under

understood that Manager Dalley was

ON GOOD MATERIAL
Strength, Speed, and Weigh t Are Almost Indispensable
to Success of Football Team Woeful Lack
of 200Pound Lines.
By HAMILTON FISH, JR.,
Former Harvard Captain and All-America Tackle.
There is no denying the fact that
good material counts for a great deal,
and this year It will be of additional
importance because heavy linemen will
be needed In the rushing game.
Good material signifies candldaatea for
the eleven who have the weight,
strength and speed requisite to make
varsity players, to say nothing of hav
ing plenty of sand and an active mind.
It matters not how clever the coach
ing or how bright the candidate, he Is
not apt to make a great varsity player
without weight, strength and speed. It
you look at Walter Camp's AU-Amerlca
teams for the past decade you will no--tice
very few light men.
la the last few years, owing to the
changes In the rules whereby It was
practically Impossible to score by the
rushing game, a light, quick player
served for the purposo of defense, but
under the present rules weight and
strength will be needed In the Una.
For the last two years there has been
a woeful lack of 200-pound line players
of the cllber of Andrua. Goebel. and
Jlobbs, of Yale and of MacKay, of Har
vard, and Tooin, of uartmoutn. Fisner
was the only big man on the Harvard
team last year, as was Bomelsler on
the Yale team. The center position In
the modern game requires an exceeding
ly active player and Is apt not to be
as heavy as the rest of the line.
Are Cood Players.
Both Bomelsler and Ketcham are
good players, but there were quite a
few followers of the game who did
not agree with- Mr. Camp's selection
of these two players on his AU-Amerlca
team, not because they were not
first rate players, but because of tho
Impropriety of choosing a player like
Bomelsler, who played only a short
time in both the Princeton and Har
vard games, and were opposed to
Ketcham owing to his poor passing in
the last two games.
An All-America center should be
not only a great player but also a
certain passer. There are many who
figured that Bud Smith, of Harvard,
on account of his consistent showing
should have been selected in place of
Bomelsler, and that Blutenthal, of
Princeton should have been given
preference over Ketcham for the
It will be interesting to watch tho
rivalry again this year between
Ketcham and Bluthenthal, who Is the
best lineman that Princeton has left
from last year's championship team.
Phillips at tackle, and Dunlap, who
played end last y ar but Is being tried
out at tackle this season, are the only
other veterans. Both are light for
the present tackle position. The loss
of Hart, Duff, and Wilson in the line
will be keenly felt at Princeton.
Easy to Figure.
By the process of reasoning that the
heavy, well built candidate will be
given the preference, It Is an easy
matter to figure out the probable final
varsity teams. Harvard, Yale, and
Princeton are particularly lacking In
or diseased blood, It tones up and regulates every
portion of the system, and creates an abundant sup
ply of nourishing properties which permeate the
circulation and bring health to the body. S. S. S.
is madeentiiely of healing, cleansing roots, herbs
and barks, which are also possessed of great tonic
properties. It does not contain a particle of min
eral or other harmful drug, and is therefore the
purest and safest blood medicine for young or old.
S. S. S. cures Rheumatism. Catarrh. Snrra and Ul
heavy line material, although Yale
has a decided advantage In this re
spect over the other two college.
The coaches know on paper what will
be their final lineup, with the exoeptlons
of the few men that are developed to
fill In the weak spots. The following
Is the writer's selection for the final
Harvard, Yale and Princeton varsities
In the latter part of November and la
practically the same as Saturday's
makeshifts. It Is only possible to se
lect from the material that has al '
ready reported, but barring Injuries the
following line-ups will probably bo main
tained with few exceptions.

Parmenter, Ketcham, Bluthentlmi,
Gardiner, Cornish. Kmrnons,
Wendell. Spalding, Pendleton,
Hardwlck, Phllbln. Baker,
Brlckley, Camp, Dewltt
It Is Interesting to note that all three
centers are veterans and that none ot
the six guards have played varsity foot
ball before. It Is also curious that all
the Princeton and Yale halfbacks are
veterans and also that all three cap
tains sre halfbacks.
