list church by the score of 38 to 25,
and the Tigers won over the Moline
Y. M. C. A. by the score of SG to 8.
The contest between the Maroons
and the Davenport team was the better
?arae of the evening. The game was
featured by the fast team work of the
Maroons and the splendid basket
throwing by Strate, who made 26
points. At the end of the first half
the visitors had but 7 points to 17 for
the Maroons. The church boys made
a desperate rally in the second half,
but the Maroons ended with their
usual rush and in a few minutes had
a big lead.
The Moline team was no match for
the Tigers, and the Tigers made bas
kets almost at will. Ficken and Cook
made-nearly all the points. At the
end of the first half the score stood
49 to G. These were the second sched
uled matches of the season and the
crowd preseik was large considering
the nearness-of - Christmas. Several
fine teams are on the schedule and will
soon play here. .

YALE LED EASTERN ELEVEN
Her Victory Over Harvard Gave Best
Claim to Supremacy.
The question ns to the champion cast
eru football team of 1000 is a trouble
some one. although most critics are
disposed to award the honor to Yale.
Others say. however, that as Prince
ton tied with Yale the New Jerseymen
should rank as high as Yale.
Still it must be admitted that Yale
showed better staying powers than
Priueeton. and this, with her defeat
of Harvard, should give her the first
Yale's development of championship
caliber at a time when many observers
thought her chances slim showed that
she had plenty of power In reserve, to
use when she needed it most.
Captain Samuel F. B. Morse, Half
back ltoome. Halfback Veeder and
End Alcott proved the bright stars
of the Yale team.
Itoonie It was who scored the win
uing touchdown against Harvard. He
is a wonderfully powerful lino hitter.
He is a human bull when on tlie grid
iron. lie was the oue man ta turn the final
trick when Yale put the ball en Har
vard's eight yard line, through Yeeder's
now historical long forward pass and
Alcott's splendid catch of it.
It was a severe misfortune for Yale
to have to do without Koome's services
for most of tho season.
Morse and Veeder proved to be prnc
tically the most formidable set of line
attackers in the east.
There is probably no truth in the re
ports that Yale and Harvard will not
meet eacn other next year, although
President Eliot of Harvard is desirous
of having football abolished at Cam
bridge altogether. He classes football
and basket ball sis "dishonorable
sports." Dear, dear! How would be
like to substitute jaekstraws . and

THE PLANS OF '
America's Leading Amateur Skater is
to Try for Canadian Honors
Is a Simon Pure Amateur.
Morris Wood, the American amateur
skating champion, is out on the war
path. This phenomenal native of Long
Branch City, N. J., 'is gunning for tho
Canadian championship title3 as well
as the American ones.
Wood will go to Canada to attempt
to make himself the best hated lad In
the entire Dornluion, as he would be
if he defeated the Canucks at the sport
they take the most pride in.
Wobd denies reports that he would
not compete actively this year. He has
all the medals now that he can carry,
but he wants to win a few more to
give away to his friends.
A cynical observer once said to the
"Seven-tenths of the gold and silver
medals won by American amateurs in
the last ten years are now resting
peacefully in the hands of the pawn
brokers of the bis cities."
But Morris never patronized these
loan artists even though he has bad to
work vey hard to earn his living. He
Is a consistent, unattackable amateur,
and so ranks among the modern, won
ders of tho world.
Both the X.acziaaa zsu) Canadian
championships will be hefrS late in
January or early in February.
Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia
and Dartmouth universities will be In
cluded in the intercollegiate ice hockey
league for the present year.
As usual, one of the star Canadian
teams will invade the United States in
January. A team from Quebec Is
coming down this year. A Toronto
outfit may venture this way also.
Hookey will be a leading sport at
Princeton when the artificial lake pre
sented by Andrew Carnegie la opened
In midwinter. Carnegie lake will -afford
fine facilities for practice.
Candidates for Yale's varsity hockey
team have already been called out.
Five good men of last year's team are
left as a nucleus for another strong
seven, and there is much good mate
rial from which to pick new men. Un
der the new eligibility rules freshmen
cannot play on the varsity team, but
in their class teams they can prove
their worth, thereby helping their
chance3 for next year.
HANDY TO MEET DANIELS.
Great Sn-iminlnR Race to Occur In
Buffalo In February.
The much discussed swimming match
between C. M. Daniels of the New
York Athletic club and H. J. Handy of
the Chicago Athletic association will
take place at the Young Men's Chris
tian association of Buffalo, N. Y.. on
the Sth of next February.
, Daniel5!, who has just returned to
New York from a visit to Buffalo,
gives his reasons for selecting that city
for the match. He says he was brought
up at Buffalo and his friend. have of
ten urged him to give them a chance to
see him swim.
Both Chicago and New York wanted
the match, and extraordinary efforts
were made to sectire the attraction.
The distance will be half a mile, and
the race will take place in a pool which
Is 60 by 20 feet in size. A new record
is almost sure to be established, and
experts believe that twelve minutes
will be beaten.
