United States Military Academy E
In Their Annual Football Ga
Stenos
(By AMovinted Pren.)
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 28.-The
United State? Military Academy de
feated the Naval Academy 20 to 0 in
their annual football game here today.
Tbe superiority of the cadets waa aa
marked aa the score ind?cate?. Once
the powerful Army machine started its
work for the Initial touchdown the
ultimate outcome rever WSB in doubt.
The Midshipmen were outplayed and
outclassed in every department and
but for their splendid fighting spirit
in the face of certain defeat the score
would have been even Urger.
Although the game lacked the close
ness and thrill that has featured
Army-Navy battles of other years, it
furnished the splendid scenic picture
which distinguished it from all oth
er games of the season.
The University of Pennsylvania ath
letic amphitheatre was thronged with '
33,000 spectators. Every available
foot of space in both permanent and
temporary stands waa occupied. The
color? of the competing academies !
were everywhere, and as supporters of
both the Army and Navy followed
every cue given by the cheering
squads of sailors and soldiers the
long oval shaped stand surrounding
the field was constantly a ripple with
the hues of either West Point or An
napolis.
The touch of militarism given by
the uniformed and marching wards of '
Uncle Sam, before and after the game,
set the hearts of thousands ufutter.
Even the weather man entered into (
the spirit of the occasion, providing,
a perfect afternoon.
The ball scarcely had been put in i
play when it became evident the Mid* |
dies could not ?top the smashing at
tack of their rivals. Each .earn in
turn tried out the opponent's defense,,
but at first there waa no continuity in
the play of either eleven. As a re
sult punting was resorted to and the
Army's first score came aa a result ]
of these exchsnges. Coffin kicked from |
the Cadet's 40-yard Une and the ball |
rolled to the Navy's five-yard Une '
where ntodgett fell- on lt His st-!
tempt' to punt from behind his own |
gool line was blocked and he tell on
the ball for a safety.
The second period upened with the
ball In possession of the Middles.
They could make little progress
through or around tho Army line. The
Cadets gained on every exchange ot
punts, and when Blodgett fumbled one
of Coffin's kicks Merrilat fell on tho
ball on the Navy 15-yard line. .. The
Army secured its first touchdown
when Prichard made a perfect tor
ward pass to Merrilat, who ran across
fte line without opposition. The try

I The second touchdown was made on
! a repetition of these plays. The Navy
kicked off and the Army returned the
punt. Blodgett again fumbled and
again an alert Cadet player fell on the
I ball on the Middies' 36-yard mark.

j who was downed on the Navy's one
yard line. Hodgson plunged over for
, a touchdown. McEwan failed to kick
goal.
The Middies fought desperately In
the third period and although they
never threatened the Army goal, they
kept their own reasonably safe.
In the final quarter a punting duel |
quickly developed, working the ball
within striking distance of the Mid
dles' goal. The soldiers uncovered an
Told fashioned attack which proved ir
resistible. By short line plunges and
end runs the ball was carried a few
yards at a time. Then Quarterback
Prichard switched his tactics and
made a forward pass to Merrilat, who
crossed the last five-yard line before
he was downed. Prom here Benedict
carried the ball over In two plunges.
Again the Army failed at goal.
As a result of todsy's victory the
Army-Navy series which began in
1890 stands a tie. Bach academy baa
won nine games of the 19 played. The
1905 contest ended with the score 6
to 6.
The result today also rounded out
'a triumphant season for the Army,
which now takes fts place as one of
the very few eastern institutions to
complete the 1914 campaign without
being either defeated or tied.
Captain Overesch; Quarterback
Miles and Halfbacks Craig and Hurl
hurt all figured prominently for the
Navy.
Captain Prichard and Merrilat, be
cause of thler perfect work on forward
passes, were the Army stars. Every
touchdown made by the Cadets was
due to this method of advance. Mc
Ewan at center was a tower of defense
for the line. Hodgson was the best of
the secondary line in this respect.
Members of the president's cabi
net, admirals, generals, members of
congress and other notables, togeth
er, with society leaders and other pro
minent personages from throughout
the eastern part of the country watch
ed the game.
Official Washington was there in
force. The secretaries of war, navy,
interior, commerce and labor, the
postmaster general and the attorney
general ?ach headed a party which
came on a special train. Admiral
Dewey, General Leonard Wood, and
Major General Hugh L. Si ott were
among the members of the two
branches of the services whose pres
ence was hailed with applause. A
Hst ot rear admirals and brigadier
generals present would furnish an al
most complete registry of these
gradea. Governor Tener, of Pennsyl
vania, and Governor Goldsborough, of
Maryland, were among the chlew State
executives present.
Champ Clark, speaser ot tne nation
al house of representlves, was a
guest of Assistant Secretary of War
Brecktnrldge.

Special Dlrldeed-Remarkable
Series of Achievements.
. Another Increase In dividends by
the Mutual Benefit Life Insurance
Company is announced in the follow
ing letter to agents, signed by Presi
dent Frellnghuysea:
"The regular dividends to. be cre
dited to premium paying policies
(except five yeer term policies) upon
their anniversaries in 1915 will show
a substantial Increase over the regular
dividends credited In 1914 Such in
crease resalta from the fact that it
has become unnecessary for the Com
pany to retain for expehses and con
tingencies as large a portion of that
part of the stipulated premiums pro
vided therefor aa has heretofore been
retained for auch purpose. The in
crease, therefore, fl del not affect paid
up policies, upon which premiums are
not being paid."
IO connection with the announce
ment that dividends for 1915 on pre
mium paying life and endowment poli
cies will be increased substantially
over those payable on similar policies
in 1914 -it is worth while to call at
tention to the following record of the
Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Com
pany covering the past seven years.
In 1907 the Mutual Benefit still fur
ther liberalised for both old and nsw
policies, Its non-forfetlture system
adopt*- in 1879 and modified in 1896
and 1900.
In 1908 the Company established a
suspended mortality fund, which re
lieves lt ot the necessity of changing
its dividend scale to meet fluctuations
. ? ? ? 1-" ' 1
in death losses from year to year.
In 1910 the Company established a
real estate depreciation fund. In 1911
it established a security filiation
fund and made a further increase In
Ita dividend scale for 1912. lia 1912
the Company established higher re
serves for; policies issued prior to
1900, and provided that thereafter the
loan and surrender values of, such
policies should be based upon such
higher reserves.'

special dividend of $867,000. In 1914
lt paid a special dividend of $801,000,
and adopted an increased dividend

It ?rill be noticed that the several
