How Old is Ann? Has Nothing on
This Princeton-Yale Score Puzzle
THE secret of what is making Frank Hurst thin is out. Here it is:
The popular Detroit referee and football expert was asked to de
cide the following question:
“Four of ub made a pool of guesses as to the nearest score of the Yale-
Princeton football game. The score was 3-3. Which of the following was
nearest?” *
Princeton Yale
0 0
3 •>
7 3
0 3
It was too much for Hurst. He put it up to a group of friends.
“Speaking judicially,” said one, “the fellow who said 0-0 wins. His guess
was that the teams would be eveniny .matched, and they were."
“Not much," said another. “The pool should be split between the men
who guessed 0-3 and 3 -6. They were only 8 out of the road. The fellow who
guessed 0-0 vat 3 off on Princeton and 3 off on Yale, or altogether 6 out of
the road."
Everybody asked had a different opinion, so finally he wrote:
“It would take a philosopher to write the entire situation out. At first
glance I should say that 0-0 was nearest to the final outcome. It depends
whether you figure these things out numerically or in the spirit of the game
of football. The man who bet that Princeton and would play an 0-0
game would win only in the respect that it was a tie game. He bet that
Yale and Princeton would neither one ofthem score, and as p matter of fact
each one of them scored three points.
“The one who bet Princeton would win by three points over Yale was
right as to the Princeton end of the score; he bet that Yale would not score,
but Yale did score three points.
“The man who bet that the score would be 7 to 3 is lour points out of
the way on the Princeton side, and he is easily the loser. The man who bet
Princeton would not score and Yale would score three points, was half right.
“If you can reason this out and arrive at any conclusion you can do bet
ter than I can, but it seems to me that the man who bets 7 to 3 had better
go Out and buy the other_three men
