one end Outside of these two discrepancies he has the
big. ellow egg; at bis mercy He can make It eat out of
his hand or off his foot. And what Is even more to tho
point, he can kick It through a keyhole, provided said
keyhole Is eight inches In diameter
Felton and Hrickley showed well enough Siturday
that football is rightly named that the Man back of the
Toe Is still master of the Held. When Harvard on Sat
in day was unable to gain any ground through the Tiger
defense bysrushlug the oval, Keltou's punting drove
Nassau back until Mr Urickley drew within sight of
tho goal bar, and the rest of it was like pilfering pen
nies from those whose lamps are out. All Urickley had
to do was drop the ball and boot It And two seconds
later eleven forlorn Tigers gazed moodily overhead as
the yellow egg whistled iiciobs tho bar and the scorer
rang up three more points.
Unfortunately for the spectators. Quarterback Gard
ner failed to request Hrickley to kick one over with his
left ear. Hut It Is whispered in polite football circles
that ho will display this stunt later on In vaudeville.
"No one will over know," Center niuethental, of the
Tigers, told us after the game on tho way back home.
"what a helpless feeling it Is to bland still and see that
ball sail up and over jour head far out of reach
and then drop across the goal bar. You are In thoro
fighting, driving 'cm back, holding 'cm, piling 'cm up,
and then, Just when you figure you have 'em stopped,
ou see Hrickley drop back It's the way I Imagino a
fellow feels stood up against a brick wall to be shot
with his hands and his feet tied You think of a lot of
things, but In the end there's only one thing left to do
which Is stand there until you are shot. This fellow
kicks so swiftly that no team can block him. You
sec tho ball strike his hands and tho next you see It. It
is sailing directly for the bar. If seven men are coming
at you ahead of tho runner, there Is always a chanco
to spill tho play. Hut when a fellow Is only five foct
seven Inches or six feet tall, by what law of gravity
can ho break up a play thirty feet In the air? In the
first place It's a tough angle to meet, and In tho second
place It can't bo done."
A few minutes later we ran Into Phil King, one of tho
wisest of them all. for a short confab.

and Brickley," he said, "the odds are

never seen the combined kicking game that of punt
ing and drop-kicking handled In a more useful way.
It shows that despite the changes supposed to favor the
rushing and the running game, the kicker Is still mas
ter of tho field among teams approaching the same
class. I don't think Harvard could have scored a touch
down against us If we hadn't been forced by circum
stanced to a reckless use of the forward pass. Hut
I Iarvai d doesn't need any touchdowns to win as long
as she has a pair like Felton and Hrickley to act both
as offenso and defense."
Urickley, they say, has a ounger brother coming on
who is an even better drop-kicker than Charley Is. If
this statement Is true the height ot generalship In all
future games against the Crimson will be to hide the
ball the second the younger Urickley saunters upon
Big Toe, mid the
Urickley can't do
make it stand on
A drop-klcker of Hrlcklo's mold Is of Infinitely more
value to a team than a runner of the Lefty Flynn type.
Against this combination of Felton and Urickley we
arc willing to go on record now that Yale has only an
outside chance to win unless tho Hlue can unravel a
drop-kicking or place-kicking wonder In the Interim.
For, despite the added down and the shortened field,
tho running and rushing offonBo still has its troubles
within thu 20-yard lino and If Harvard hadn't had
a good drop-kicker or place-kicker, the odds are the
Crimson would never have scored despite the very fine
game her people put up
"Princeton," remarks one expert, "used tho forward
pass entirely too much." And yet. It was only by tho
forward pags that Princeton scored and without the
forward pass tho Tiger would never have pierced that
heavier and more powerful Crimson defense In n dozen
years. Speed Is all right when It once gets loose, but
It won't get loose very often against an alert defense,
tackling with the deadliness shown by Harvard on
Princeton played her gamo as Princeton generally
does, but old Nassau hod neither the power nor the

upon display. Princeton was nlso handicapped by a
first appearance In the Harvard Stadium, where tricky
and sweeping wind currents put a visiting team up
agnlnst a bewildering mystery, whero more than one

It may be something of a question as to whether or
not Harvard can stand tho drive of five tough games In

hold Ills men at edgo for the Yale battle. It's almost a
certainty that tho scoreless draw of the last two years
