'Nt Ball BVenaainK Humanized.
Hew York World.
" i the great fight for tbe championship
een Yale and Princeton each man bad
ned to him one player on tbe other
-. and It was bis duty to thwart every
tkn and stop every move that that
player might make.
ffelflnger.tbe greatest all-around mn
ips who has ever played foot-ball,
inly tbe greatest player as a guard
t interference, was held over and
and his tremendous personality al-
eliminated from tbe game by Kiggs,
. inceton, yet it never once occurred
u in his rage to use his big body
-is wonderful strength is such a way
iend Biggs to his bed of pain. To
" ' a blow meant to be ordered off tbe
and tbe dread of that calamity, the
r of s'tting by with no share in the
kept big Heffelflnger and every
man in the game absolutely faithful
rules. It was a fine study in self
1. . 'he end of tha first balf, when neither
bad scored and every one knew that
-. . the wonderful curly and tow-
. . -yd Princeton man, had cheated
Tale out of at least two touchdowns
by his fine tacking, it was thoroughly
understood and agreed among those
who icved Yale that any accident to
King in tbe beginning of the second halt
would be providential and welcome.
Little I arry Beech, who as Yale quarter
back and captain, used to fl'l his distin
guished grandfather, Henry Ward, with
envy, p it his head close to that of Bull,
the greet kicker, and those two men used
all their strength in lining up a prayer
that sone one might break King's arms
and leg" without breaking tbe rules. In
old foot -ball, or even in the game as it
was recently played in England by the
Austral ans, such a decision by great
players would have resulted in the giving
of quiet instructions to some Yale giant
like Hef elfinger, and he then would have
made it bis business to charge King in
such a vay as to knock him senseless, or
in some other way to force him out of
tbe garni. Tbe fact that in the second
half Ytl 3 fought King's tackling only
with more clever running and dodging,
and that King came out of the game with
his curly head in a state of perfect pre
sent station shows how much the spirit of
the gnmi! is improving on American soil.
The day will come, and it will be a fine
one, when America will send to England
an 11 wMcb, if necessary, will beat their
best Rugby 15 and do it without using
their fistx for any other pnrpose than to
take the English by their necks and
throw tlx m firmly on tbe grass.
For thd comfort of mothers, who real
ly are ratber prouder than the fathers to
bear that their sons are on'the team, it
may be st.id that tbe constant tendency
of the game in the hands of the American
colleges 1) to eliminate brutality, and to
make skill and beadwork tbe great fac
tors. As an instance, take the abolition
of tbe ruls. which allowed the man tack
ling a Ion j kick to be grabbed and slam
med on tl e ground as soon as he had tbe
ball in his arms. As the player
saw the ball come flying toward
him bis only thought was to catch it.
Catch it hs did, although to do it he had
to stretch up his arms and render himself
powerless to resist attack, and although
he knew tbat as soon as be had It from
one to four pairs of willing hinds would
dash him to tbe ground. Tbe fact is
now appreciated that it is no fun to
knock a man down when be is engaged in
a task whiih renders it impossible for him
to fight back, and under the rules to
day that unpleasant feature of catching
the ball is left out.
