ON TIIE GRIDIRON.
JUST BEFORE THE BIGGEST GAMES OF
THE SEASON-PRINCETON'S GOOD
CHANCE TO BEAT YALE
ON SATURDAY.
Harvard. Yale and Princeton are now await
ing the final blasts of the referee's whistle. Each
team has had all of its ••practice" games, and !
there remain only the final touches to put to the j
rival elevens. The feature of a season that has \
otherwise been devoid of features has been the ;
remarkable improvement made by several teams
not commonly considered of first class calibre.
But the public interest still centres In the elevens
of the big universities, and it becomes necessary,
to pive a. final glance at their condition and j
prospects. Pennsylvania may be dismissed from :
consideration. She dismissed herself effectually
on Saturday, when Harvard simply smothered i
her. It is Pennsylvania's weakest team in years.
It is not too severe to say that not one of her <
players is a first class man or could hope for any j
i-oFitlon better than substitute on a really first i
class team.
On Saturday Princeton goes to New-Haven
for the final and most important game of her
ecason. She goes there with not a defeat regis
tered against her and only one tie game. Her j
chances for euccess eeem good. Yale won from ,
"West Point, but she did not outplay the soldiers
any more than Princeton did. Indeed, the West
Pointers had improved since the Tale game, end
gave the Tigers a. better fight. Princeton, too.
-was without all her best players, a fact that
must be taker, into consideration. The defence of
the Tigers Is the -weakest point about the eleven.
If it equalled the attack the Orange and Black
would be invincible this season. Unfortunately,
it leaves much to be desired. Some of the
forwards appear to convince themselves that the
I .lay Is not coming their way -when it really is.
They fail. too. in getting through rapidly enough
in break up of the opposing interference. Prince
ton's offensive -work Is good beyond that of any
other team on the- gridiron up to date this
season, and, what is more encouraging still, she
is handling the ball very cleanly in her recent
games. If she continues^ do this it is likely to
help her win the Tale j^ime. for the Elis have
been bad offenders this season as to fumbles and
muffed punts.
Yale's game with the Orange Athletic Club or.
SiUur.-iay was gcod football, and the partisans of
the New-Haven team are much encouraged as
c result. It is not hard, however, for a good team
to beat an inferior team badly and do it by foot
ball. The difficult thing Is to play football of
the very best quality -when opposed to another
team that is playing a game of equal quality.
I Yale, however, has long been noted for pulling
bSEScH together for a supreme effort and for
ir.akinfe almost phenomenal improvement In the
l&<n tern days before a tig game. It has been
feared by sJme have seen the Yale players
during the last few days that they would go into
the rririo-ton game overtrained. If they do it
will i.c the first big game In a iong, long time
thtt'nas found Yale piayers physically unfit for
an emergency when It has been possible for
BkOful training and oversight *o send them
lhae fit. -Mlke~ Murphy knows when a man is
Jit yrd how fes keep him to. and It is unlikely
That he will lose his cunning this year.
A? statc-d In another column of this news-
I>a;>t-r, Glass will probably not be allowed to
play in the Harvard game, and may not in the
Princeton game. This is, in my judgment. Just
-.vhat should happen. To play him would clearly
break the rule of eligibility passed last spring
by Yale's athletic advisers; ar.d Yale Is not In
th- habit of mekin;? a rule in the spring and
hr.aking it in the J&IL It Is hard to ccc how
Glass can consistently be played In the Prince
ton game If he is excluded from the Harvard
game. If the rule Is violated In one case it cer
tainly is in the other. The fact that Princeton
is nor likely to protest Glass, vhiie Harvard will
alnjost surely do co, -would be a pretty unworthy
motive for playing the freshman guard In the
T>rir'Ceton game. It is admitted that the ab
pence of Glass will severely cripple the Yaie
line, and mar cost her the Harvard and Prince
ton 'games, not only because the freshman's in
dividual playing will be so badly missed, but
because his presence has been relied upon to
etlffen th 6 centre of the line.
I tio not think that the presence of Glass
•would save the Princeton game for Yale. I look
to see & Princeton victory. There are several
reasons that lead to this conclusion. Princeton
has scown much more Bteadiness In critical
Situations than has Yale. Fhe has handled the
ball much more cleanly. Dewltt will probably
outpunt I«= Saulles or Weymouth. and the of
f .nee of the Tigers is better organized and more
• ye. Yaie may yet pull herself together,
• it looks as if the situation were too serious
• Yale pluck and luck to pull her through.
I doubt, however. If Tale has much to fear
from Harvard- Harvard simply-slaughtered the
■unfortunate Pennsylvania's on Baturday, but |
she did not convince many close observers that
her m teara is particularly good or capable of
being developed. in the short space of & fort
night into a team, able to. play fast and finished
football. Harvard's line Is one of th» -heaviest
on the gridiron this fall, but it is not espe~
dally active line, and, although the,- forwards
continually broke through "Penn'fl" " Una when
the Crimson was on the defence, they did. not
v se*>m to know -what to do when . they got.
through. It was rarely that a "Perm" runner
was downed by any of the Harvard fomaruA
with the exception of Campbell and Bowditoh.
He usually downed himself by hitting a^nass o*
tangled players. And urn for handling the ball.
Harvard's work was enough, to bring the blush,
of shame to the average -prep" school player.
Ii is hard to see how such a team could go
through so much good training as Harvard has
received this fall and still fumble and muff and
otherwise mishandle the oval ea the Crimson
kickers dia on Saturday. Of course. 'Perm
was. worse, but that should be no comfort to
Harvard. If the Cambridge eleven doe» not
improve In this particular before November -d
Ya c will beat her. Glass or no Glass, as surely
as beans are baked In Boston every Saturday
night.
Cornell comes down to New-York on Batur*
day to meet Columbia, and ought to beat hei\
Should Columbia meet Cornell to-day, there
could be no doubt in the minds of most football
observers of the victory of the Ilhacans. Yet
Syracuse routed the New- Yorkers on Saturday
and rubbed It In In £ood style, simply outplay
ing Sanford'e pupils at erery point. Banford
did not see the mournful eight, having- gone to
Ithaca to get a line on Cornell. He -was prob
ably the most surprised man In the State when
he heard the melancholy news. Columbia Is a
~ood deal like Harvard this season. She has a
-ood strong line, but they are slow and some
what clumsy, and do not set Into the inter
ference promptly. I-ancon get» through his op
ponents with ease, as a rule, but does not know
what to do next. Cornell Is used to fast foot
ball Her Interference forms rapidly and sets
under way like a thunderbolt. It ouffht to
prove too much for Columbia, and If It does not
I shall be as much- surprised as Sanford "was

: Saturday with a team which had beaten Brown
' 20 to 0 and had held down the Lafayette team
I to a score of 5 to 0. There are those who saw
i*the Syracuse te«m play on Saturday who think
that a return game between Syracuse and
Lafayette might show a different result. That
Columbia did not fear her Syracuse rivals
i was shown by the dilatory tactics of the local
' players In the first half of the game, and the
fact that the Columbia undergraduates had been
! led to believe that Columbia would win so easily
| that cheering was not necessary. Columbia went
Into the game full of confidence and ended hi
: being nearly scared to death. hen the Co
| lumbia singers got together and began to sing
their war songs it was too late, for their pets
; were beaten, and beaten soundly. The injury to
1 Moore and the fumble by Morris, which fol
! lowed a few seconds later, did more to save
Columbia from a shut out than any work the
local players did themselves. Syracuse scored
twice on "straight hard football, her formations
being arranged quickly and her backs hitting"
the heavier Columbia line with the force of a
battering ram. She cut through the Columbia
line like a knife and skirted her ends in brilliant
fashion. Weekes. as usual, played brilliantly,
his hurdling being more dashing and successful
than usual, yet the -work done by Brown, the
Syracuse ground gainer, compared favorably
■with anything done by a halfback in this dis
trict this year. The Syracuse team is light,
averaging only 155 pounds, but it plays as. fast
football as Columbia cares to handle at this or
at any other season of the year.

teams to date are as follows:

GRAY TO HELP AMHERST.
PLAYERS WORKING HARD FOR WILLIAMS
GAME.
Amherst. Mass.. Nov. 10 (Special).— To-day Am
herst begins active preparations for the champion
ship games with Williams and Wesleyan. Special
efforts will be made to have th© team In th« best
of Fhap<» when the men line up against WUllnm*
en Weston Field next Saturday.
The, Improvement slnco th« cam« v;ith Syracuse
has been marked, especially In offensive work. The
backs get off quickly ana bit th* line hard. The
forwards ar« active and Strong. On the defence
the team has been showing consistent development
During the practice games of last week a strong
scrub was able to score only a single touchdown
and did not menace the 'varsity goal line at any
other time. The old tendency to fumble has not
been wholly overcome yet. but each day sees less
of It.
Georg»» Gray, the old Harvard halfback, 1"» ex
pected this week to take charge of the candidates
for the back field, th>in allowing Head Coach Swain
to devote his entire attention to the linesmen. The
kicking department needs roistering up a little, as
Phillips is the only man who can [■«> relied upon.
Shay and Pierco are only fair and neither Is able
to punt far. Swift is a Strong drop kicker, who In
sure to jrlvw a pood account of hlrr.s'-lf If the ball
is pushed within striking distance of the oppo
nents' goal.
The. team will be weakened somewhat by the loss
of Anderson, right end. who has been obliged to
stop training on account of injuries, and F. Crook,
halfback, -who Is Vjt of the game the rest of the
season on account of Illness.
INDIANS AFTER PENN'S SCALP.
Carlisle, Perm., Nov. 10 (Special).— The Carlisle
Indians arrived home from Annapolis in Rood shape
to-night. While not pleased with their defeat, they
expected It, as Wheelock and Palmer, their two
biggest men, were injured. I^e Roy and De Mar,
halfbacks, ran away "from the team, and substitute
backs had to be put in.
The Indians' next game Is with the University of
Pennsylvania, next Saturday, and they would
rather win this game than any on the schedule
Hard practice will be the order this week. The
hospital list will bo cleared and every man coached
to do his best. The Indians have a fast team this
year, but are badly handicapped because of having
no heavy or experienced players.

GLASS NOT TO PLAY.
YALE'S FRESHMAN GUARD PROBABLY
OUT OF THE HARVARD GAME.
A New-York Yale man who is closely in touch
with the football situation at New-Haven is
authority for the statement that in all proba
bility Yale will net play Glass. the big guard.
in the game with Harvard. It is recognized, he
says, that this action may result in Yale's de
feat, but, even with that possibility in view, it
is Mkely that the freshman will not be played.
It is known that the question of playing Glass
has agitated the Yale coaches for the last two
weeks as no similar question has ever disturbed
them. The thing is discussed/too, among the
undergraduates with extraordinary interest. Up
to the present time there have been two factions
In the case. One Of them, headed by Walter
Camp, declares out and out for the withdrawal
of Glass even though It cost the team the Har
vard game. Better a defeat, says this faction,
than a victory with any stain upon it.
The other side is headed by Captain Gould,
who has contended that the spirit of the eligi
bility rule would not be broken by the playing
of Glass, but undergraduate and alumni senti
ment has swung toward Mr. Camp's side pretty
Strongly, especially since the publication of the
semi-official article In the Harvard •■Crimson,"
and it is believed that Captain Gould will yield
and that Glass will not play in the Harvard
game. It is CCDfWently expected that If Yale
doe not Indicate her intention of not playing
Glass Harvard will protest him.
It cannot be disputed that to play GUM would
violate the letter of the eligibility rule, which
reads:
No man who baa attended recitations or lecture*
In any other college or university *rmll be eligible
to represent any university athletic association of
Yale until he baa been enrolled In Tale University
for at least one calendar rear, and during said
year has been a bona flde student of Tata l nt
verslty.
Qlasa was ;v Syracuse University student and
played on Syracuse's team. Last year he was
at alercersbttrg Academy and this year came to
Yale. His father Is a well to do man. and there
is no <j'"'M'" n that Glass Is a bona fide student
and an amateur. Hut for all that It has been
practically and properly decided not to play him
against Harvard. It Is recognized that Yale has
a moral question »t weight to decide Just here
and her wisest advisers are looking to the future
as well as t.> one or two games this fall.
Princeton will not protest Glass, because her
football authorities made. It Is said, efforts to
induce him to t;o to that university, and would
have played him had he pone there. For all
ii.at. 'V.il.-'s advisers may think it best not to
put him In against the Tigers, and it would
seem that consistency on their part demands
Piich nction. Otherwise they are open to the
charge of withdrawing the big freshman from
the Harvard game simply because of the com
plaint Harvard makes and not because of any
genuine desire for an athletic purity that cannot
be tarnished by the breath of suspicion.
YALE HAS IMPROVED.
READY FOR PRINCETON NEXT SATURDAY
WORRIED ABOUT GLASS.
New-Haven. Conn.. Nov. 10 (Special).— Yale's play
In the Orange game on Saturday demonstrated be
yond a doubt that the Yale team has tremendous
power in it, and thnt Captain Gould's team can
both hold a heavy line attack and can develop some
pretty hard attacks itself. Yale's game was the
cleanest seen this season, next to the Annapolis
K£>me, which was the high water mark. The team
played with snap and lire, dashed Into every play
with plenty of hustle and tore things up like paper
in the Orange lin^. There were Individual plays of
real brilliance, including: ChadwK-k's seventy yard
run to a touchdown, De Saulles's clever run backs
frurn klckolfa and punts. Swan's work a.t end. Hart's
and H.-intlln's line and end runs. De Saulles's kick-
Ing and Glass's tine defence and rush work. If the
team that j>i.i.yed Saturday lines up against Prince
ton next Saturday Yale will be in a fair way to do
thlr.,-;H. Now that the West Pointers have added
the Tigers to their list of victims, and treated them
to even a harder dose than Yale got. it would seem
as if Yalr had us good a chance to win as Prince
ton.
From the work of the Yale team it would appear
that It will need a heavy team to break up that
fine defence. Yale held ail but two of the attacks
made on her line by the Orange men, and her ends
were pretty doubtful places in which to try to ad
vance the ball. Every time Orange tried a. run
around Swan It lost live yards, and Raffertv was
nearly as fast. The back field was also so accu
rate in catching punts that it was dangerous to let
Tale get the ball on a kick, fata also showed some
ability at punting herself, De Saulles doing some
clever fort; -five yard kicks, and putting the ball
over the goal bars for a goal from field. Weymouth
will not try to kick much next Saturday. De
Saulles, Olcott and Gould will do most of the toe
work. Dewltt will tin d that he has his hands full
if he tries to match punts with the Vale kickers.
The situation, excepting the shadow which lies on
the loam on account of the Glass mystery. is much
more hopeful than it was a week ago. The week
has been one of the most remarkable in Yale's
football history. Within ten days of the big Prince
ton game, with reports from th.-> Tigers of rosy
prospect, the Yah- team has continued in a state
of torpor, playing listlessly, fumbling and letting
a weak scrub team score on It. .There has been
only one day of secret practice since the Columbia
game — something which 13 remarkable for a Yale
team In fact, the eleven seemed to be slowly
sliding backward, and the gloom In the team per
meated th« entire university. One day there were
hardly forty undergraduates at Yale Field to see
the practice, itnil there has been no cheering or
marching to the Held as In past years. Then Fri
day the team took a brace, and yesterday played a
game that was remarkable 'or Its dash and spirit.
With her lineup Tale will present as strong an
aggregation as there Is In the country, and will
take a lot of beating. The week will, of course, bo
the most important In the season, as each day's
polishing off will put the team that much ahead.
Secret practice will begin right away again, and
there will he a horde of coaches here. It is proba
ble that Gordon Hmwn. captain of last year's
eleven, will be on hand most of the week. He may
be Rble to help along things.
Captain Gould said to-night In relation to the
Glass eligibility case: "We have not yet arrived
at any decision, and shall not, probably, until the
IS— HOOAN (tackle).
10 — VANDBRPOOL (subHltuU).
night before the Princeton frame, unless Gb^,
protested, -which has not happened yet." *
The Glass matter is causing much dlson
among the Yale coachers. and It is understonH .V*
the best possible university advice la beir.it «n^ i? :
The case is regarded as a peculiar one in^J v
as the idea of the frames of the rul*"that *
to exclude Glass was not Intended to "shut .n? 8 *
man out. a Glass spent a year in a Preparatory
school, and is regarded as a bona fide YaliT> ?
lean. Every effort will be mane to set Prti23^
and Harvard to look at the case in this light/^
PRINCETON HOPEFUL.
TIGERS' SEASON TO END WITH THE •TAT.-
GAME OX SATURDAY.
Princeton. N. J.. Nov. 10 (Special).-Old Nassau 1
football season, just two months in duration »a
come to a close next Saturday, when the tea
lines up against the Yale eleven si New-Haven
the big championship match. The thoughts c ! eve «
undergraduate at the present time are taraed
toward New-Haven, where the erpat final grldl
battle is to be fought. The success of the tea° 3
will be measured on the result of this eani» and
if another victory is added to the already' loo*
string of triumphs the players have turned i a it
is safe to predict that the historic cannon in the
rear of "Old North" will b^ Illumined with a tre
mendous bonfire on the Monday evening folloTrta*
the scene on Yale Field next Saturday. j ust Ki Jf
the result of this important contest will V is a
easy to tell before the game i 3 on. as the showing
made by both teams thus far would Indicate a
closely fought battle.
As for Princeton, it may be saM that th« fa
coaches who are now on the field every afternoon
are bringing all their reserve energy into service,
and they are giving each man on the team the
proper benefit of all their football knowledge. Head
Coach Lea has gathered about him a corps ef
assistants whose ability in coaching cannot '>
questioned, and these men are making every n-.inata
of the afternoon practice .ram.- count for their
full value. The players are trotted out on the field,
and after being sent through a lively signal drta
are given two fast, snappy halves with the- scrub
team. When this Is over they are turned over
to the professionals at the field house, who loos
after their physical condition. In the evenlnj a
half hour is spent at the 'varsity clubhouse* In
running through the signals, and ne-w plays are
tried.
Secret practice will be the order of work on
•varsity field, and it is not at all improbable that
the coaches will have a few surprises In stora fo
th» Yale men in the form of trick plays when the
two elevens are brought face to face. The- delayed
pass, which was worked so successfully in the
Cornell game, may be resorted to. but probably ia
a more modified or else complicated form. The
students are so enthusiastic over the prospects o'
turning the tables on the New-Haven men that bis
demonstrations in honor of the team are held dally
and on Wednesday a grand parade will take place.
The undergraduates will march to the field carrvi--*
transparencies Inscribed with suitable quotations!
"We must beat Yale" has become their watchword.
WEEK'S SECRET PRACTICE AT CORNELL.
Ithaca. N. V.. Nov. 10.— The Cornell coaches an
nounce that they will hold secret practice all of
this week, in preparation for the Columbia game.
The Ithacans are not at all confident of winning-,
despite the fact that Syracuse outplayed Columbia
last Saturday. Cornell's aim will re to bring her
crippled men out again. Taussis, left end, has been
laid up for a week, and at present there is a great
dearth of substitute end material. Smith right
tackle, and Purcell and Schoelkopf. back field play
ers, have also been out of condition for several
days, and Coach Starbuck did not allow them to
play in the Lehljth game on Saturday. If these
players fully recover and get in the game Cornell
will be in formidable shape for her New-York
game next Saturday,
