In reference to the action of tlie while

MISSES 11 TO
C. A. C. and Columbian 'Varsity
Will Line Up Today.
MAKE-UP OF THE TWO TEAMS
Clmiigf'K Made in Both Elevens
Which Strengthen. Them Dyer,
Cornells- Old Hack, Will Bo Put
in by Captain Wells cw Center
for the Winged Arrow.
The orange aud blue of the Columbian
University ana the ''winged arrow" war
riors from the Columbia Athletic Club
will meet ou the gridiron at National Park
this afternoon In the first big football
otruggle of tlie season. Recognized ah the
star pigskin kicking aggregations or Wash
ington thomeetifg will be a battle of the
clants, and thevinors will be crowned
kings oi tlje local gridiron. The red and
black lia sp lonjwaved triumphantly over (
the Senatorial rootball field that au -d-mittedly
dangerous competitor for their
honors has'Wpa'ted an intense excitement
among enthusiastic followers tif the game.
Heretofore all-has been plain sailing Tor
the C. A.' C. team . Since their old en
emies from Georgetown University re
tired from thu -field tho "winged arrow '
boys have- gon o 'heir way rejoicing
with a practically unchallenged chumplon
shlp. No local tearn has been strong enough
to really glvo Gapt. Wells aud his men
a run Tor the honors.
Now, however, all this is changed. The
Columbia 'Varsity eleven lb in the game
for keeps and intend to make a sure
right Tor the banner which has for so
long been flaunted iu their fuces by the
C. A. C. aggregation. Capt. Granville
Lewis has gotten together a team which
will undoubtedly give the C. A. C. boys
a run for their money.
Today's game is worth more to these,
teams than all the other games they will
play this seadon, aud needless to say they
will put forth their bestertorts to secure a
victory. They have put iu some hard
practice for the event. Every afternoon
the captains or these teams have liad
their men at work practicing the signals
and mass plays which will be put into exe
cution this afternoon.
Captain Wellslearned much of the weak
places In his team when the eleven lined
up before the Orange A. C- at Orange
Oval, last Saturday, and he has di
rected his every errort to strengthening
the work back of the line and will make
some lunovationh today that he predicts
will Insure an overwhelming victory for
the red and black.
Or the new men secured Dyer shows
up more prominently than the rest, aud
will do much toward the success or the
team. He Is an .exceptionally strong and
accurate kicker, and is not only a good
line-buck er and all-round good rootball
player, but enthuses the men to the high
est point with his own spirit and activity.
From his position behind the line he will
be able to give nuny valuable hints and
suggestions that will be or the utmost
use as the game progresses. Bright, at
center, is also a "valuable man, as Is Reeve
Lewis, who has-returned to the game for
the benefit of his club.
The C. A. C. brawn was rehearsed la
signal pracilccr formation, interference,
and kicking yesterday on the tennlsgrounds
adjoining tue clubhbuse. Capt. Wells was
encouraged by the vim and earnest work
coupled with the enthusiasm of his men.
The sturdy C.A. CMoommander announces
that his. athletes are iu excellent trim in
view of tbft limited stretch of practice,
due, of course to the weather. The
C. A. C. boys arc without the services of
a scrjb team, and consequently they have
been unable to develop defensive play.
But one game has been played by the Wells
aggregation , while the 'varsity team has
participate inMthree contests, thus giving
the 'varsltv alsliade the advantage iu
defensive play.g j
The probablcnipc-up of the "winged ar

quarterback, Tarson, Hooker; right half

Reeve Lewis, Ja.upiu; fullback, Dyer,
The 'varsitycill undergo very Httle
change, as CaptpGrauville Lewis Is very
well satisfied Un the showing or the
team as a wholg papt. Lewis will shine
in a stellar rolc;lat the fullback. Cum
mlngs, who Is ,Xo' be assigned to left
guard, looks a "fewer of strength and is
one or the best trained athletes in the
team as regards team work. He is a
striking rigurc on the line and the tip
topper of tliateam in pointer avoirdupois.
LauchB, who is carded to play left tackle,
is sturdy and well made, and hie husky
figure is capable of roughing it at close
quarters in the heat of the fray-
Tindall will play right hairback, and
has the enthusiastic Indorsement of Capt.
Lewis, who is confident that his right
half can conveniently .pierce the line or
skirt the end of tlie opposition- Kelly
J and Meigs, whose work on the ends in
the game against the Richmond Athletic
Club's team was one of the features of
the game, are In perfect condition. Capfc.

FOTJH IMPORTANT GAMES.
All the Blir 'Varsity Teams to Meet
New York. Oct. 29. Fourinter-collegiate
footfall games of conquerable importance
will be played tomorrow, the results of
which, will afford even better lines on the
strength ot tho big elevens than what has
been gleaned jfrom the contests already
p'ayed. Harvard will play Cornell at Cam
bridge; Pennsylvania will meet Brown at
Providence; Yale will tackle the cadets at
West Pol'it, and Dartmouth's eleven will
line up against the Tigers at Princeton.
The Harwd-Coruell game is attracting
more attention among the enthusiasts all
over the country than the other events.
The Cornell eleven, as is generally known,
it: stronger thi fall than for several years
back. The Ithacans have played a sen
sational oraw with Lafayette this seascu,
and last Saturday they put up such good
rootball that Princeton heat them by the
small score or 10 to 0.
Cornell men have been claiming, ever
since the season began, that their team
would beat Harvard. They have baed
tholr opinions on the fact that the material
at hand has been better than ever before
and that theeoaches, WarnerandBeachara,
are the most competent that Cornell has
ever hd. In game to date the Ithacans
rush line has Invariably been speedy and
that Is a big factor in any tcam'jstrength.
Haivaid's lln. on the contrary, has been
criticised almost continuously for slow
ness. TI: gn-at body of Harvard men, includ
Ing the couhps or the team and Boston en
thusiosts, are strong in the belier that Har
vard will win, but they are careful not to
predict any score and refrain from declar
ing wliPther Cornell can get the ball across
Harvard's goal line or not.
Harvard's easy victory over Brown, by
a score of 18 to 0, makes Pennsylvania's
chances unusually bright.
Yalo will have a hard game at West
Point. Ihe cadets have a formidable
eleven tnd are improving daily.
Pnnccton should have rather an easy
time disposing of Dartmouth, as the Han
over eleven was not very formidable
against Pennsylvania a few weeks ago.
