Trainer Delaney Tells of Foot
ball Payers* Actions
CHICAGO. Nov. IS—Football players,
according to Jere Delaney. trainer of
•Northwestern university eleven, are sub
ject to an ailment like softening of the
brain which leads not only to making of
peculiar statements, but causes strange
actions which sometimes are amusing.
The exact cause of the trouble. Trainer
Delaney said he is unable to fathom. He
declared, however, that it results more
from the long continued physical and
nervous strain to which the men are sub
ject during three months of rigid train
ing which thoy are forced to undergo than
from the blows, kicks and bumps they re
ceive on their skulls during games.
"It is known." said Delaney. "that ev
ery playt-r of the game fights his games
over and over again in his dreams, but
only by the men who are in closest touch
with the players is it recognized that they
are given to constant day dreaming, dur
ing which they make strange motions as
if struggling with an Imaginary oppo
According to Delaney, tfae athletes are
given to almost childish methods of play
when at rest. An instance related by the
trainer was of a man who during more
than an hour pored over a map of the
United States, drawing lines with hia in

GRAND PORKS. N. D.. Nov. 19.—Pres
ident Webster Merrifield, of the Univer
sity of North Dakota, entertained the
members of the football team at a ban
quet last evening. This Is an annual
affair and as usual was greatly enjoyed
by the football boys and their guests of
the evening. Dr. Sweetland. physical di
rector, and Pro. ML A. Branna. manager
of the football rquad. were also guests.
North Dakota made an excellent show
ing this year and the season Just closed
was one o! the best in the titstory of the
institution. Much of the credit for this to
due to Dr. Sweetland, who has worked
early and late to get the team in shape,
and the season's scores show that his
work was well done. Efforts to secure
games with St. Thomas and the Univer
sity and Agricultural College of South
Dakota failed, and on that account the
season was shorter than usual. Daring
the season the FHckertails scored 192
points against 41 by their opponents, the
only game lost being that with Minne
sota, and this was of course expected. The

The old players who have returned are

who was on the second team. Besides
these many new players have been out
trying for the team. The most likely can

who starred^) n the fast Jamestown team,
and O'Keefe, a player who promises great
results. He is from Mmto (N. D.) high

team. McDonald, who played on the Spring

should give some of the holders of places
on the first team a run for their money.
Hasburg is a swift little player from

Harrington, who played a short time last

YALE TRAILS THE
Continued From Thirteenth Page
somewhat tedious to the Immense
throng of spectators. It was almost
void of spectacular plays, and its one
brilliant incident was the blocking of
Sperry's punt in the second half, which
brought Yale's second touchdown.
Even this was better appreciated by
football men themselves than the
spectators, for it was a remarkable
thing that Kinney and Tripp should
break through Harvard's protective
line, for the punter to block the ball
and that Bloomed, another tackle,
should get it many yards behind Har
vard's line. It illustrated the point
that stands out prominently, that Yale
knew how to play and to take advan
tage of every chance to get the ball
when Harvard was on the offensive.
Record Breaking Crowd
The crowd at Yale field was proba
bly the largest which has seen a foot
ball game In this country. The banks
of humanity which inclosed the grid
iron were as vivid a mass of color, in
which reds and blues predominated, as
ever was placed on a canvas by a
painter. It was an animated throng,
which took advantage of every chance
to break into song and cheers. The
weather was that of an Indian summer
day, comfortable alike to those who
were passive observers of the struggle
on the field before them and to the
men who bore the brunt of battle. No
such throng ever invaded New Haven.
Among the distinguished spectators
were Vice President-elect Charles W.
Fairbanks and Mrs. Fairbanks, who
were guests of their two sons, who are
at Yale: J. Pierpont Morgan and Au
gust Belmont. Miss Alice Roosevelt,
with a party of girl friends, sat in the
Despite all precautions, the game
was a little delayed at the start, and
so slowly did it progress that dusk was
falling when the end came, and the
moon threw its beams on the people
as they flocked in town, homeward
bound. The chief reason for the length
of the contest was the slowness with
which the teams lined up after each
scrimmage, more especially Harvard,
when time and again it looked as if her
men wanted breathing space.
Yale Plays Faster Game
Yale played faster than Harvard and
went from beginning to end without a
change in the lineup. Harvard played
many substitutes in places of men who
seemed to have been used up in scrim
mages, but no player was seriously
hurt. At times the game was rough,
with some fisticuffs.
In every position Yale had the ad
vantage, her linesmen, especially Capt.
Hogan. who was used repeatedly to
carry the ball, outplayed the men
against them, and Shevlin and Neal. at
ends, being fast down the field under
kicks and sure in their tackling. Hoyt
outclassed Sperry ajid Nichols in punt
ing and was a worthy successor to
Mitchell, who taught him the art of
booting the ball. On Harvard's side.
Brill showed up the best, although
Matthews, who replaced Randall at left
end. did well.
Yale got her first touchdown by
consistent rushing in Harvard's terri
tory in the first half. The second came
through a blockaded kick in the sec
ond half. Harvard's most successful
attack was a crossbuck. which several
times opened holes in Yale's line
through which, however, the backs
could make no pronounced gains.
When the game was over the Yale
men began a celebration of their vic
G?me In Detail
Yale took the ball on the tossup and
Roraback kicked oft* to Randall at the
Harvard 10-yard line, who ran it back
thirteen yards. On Harvard's first play
there was a fumble without loss of the
ball. Harvard tried a double pass, but
lost ten yards. Sperry kicked to Rock
Yale then tried Harvard's defense. Hoyt,
Flinn and Morse made plunges for short
gains-, and as. Harvard's line seemed to
give. Yale followers looked for a big gain.
Hogan made first down on a short plunge
through White. Twice the slippery Morse
was given the ball and he covered nine
yards through Squires and Derby. Eight
yards were covered for Yale by Hogan's
plunge, but on a mass play Yale failed
The ball went to Harvard on downs on
their 18-yard line. Harvard's attack was
not in working order, for. after gaining
three yards on a delayed pass, they were
forced to kick. Sperry booted to Hoyt.
and Montgomery, who got there, missed
the tackle. Hoyt recovered himself and
was shoved out of bounds at Harvard's
l*p to this time Harvard's left side held
fairly well. Rockwell tried a few plays
aimed at Harvard's right wing. Flinn
was pushed through Parker for a short
gain which brought Yale to the 33-yard
line. Flinn and Mors<> made eleven yards
between them outside of Brill.
Crimson Holds Better
Harvard began to hold better at this
stage, and Morse ran up against a stone
wall defense. Flinn was called upon and
took the ball to the IS-yard line and then
fumbled it. It had looked like a touch
down, for the blue had slowly worked the
leather nearly to the Harvard goal line,
but when Sperry picked up the hounding
leather and ran to the 26-yard line Har
vard supporters felt better.
With Brill back. Harvard went through
Trlpp and then Capt. Hurley fumbled the
ball, which was recovered by Starr. Called
upon to kick. Sperry sent the ball into
Yale's territory. The blue failed to Rain
on a mass on center and so Hoyt from
his position made a fine kick nearly to
Harvard's goal line, where Starr fell on
Sperry and Hurley gathered seven
yards through Kinney. and Harvard's
real offense was beginning to crop out.
The ball was on Harvard s 23-yard line
and was knocked out of Sperry's hands
on a delayed pass. Tripp falling on it.
Yale then began an attack that pushed
th« ball steadily toward Harvard's goal
line until the 5-yard line was reached.
Some Yale man was holding in the line.
and Yale was penalized fifteen yards.
Hoyt was sent back for an apparent try
for a field goal. Instead he scooted
across the field and was thrown heavily
by Hurley. This play again gave the
bell to Harvard on downs.
