Schlechter .Vote Leads in Big
Chess Tourney.
Berlin, Jan. ?«.-Dr Emanuel Lasker. the
chess champion, and Carl Schlechter. lead
ing Austrian master, arrived In this city
to-day, after having completed the first
half of their match for the world's cham
pionship in Vienna. Of the five games con
tested in the Austrian capital the first four
were drawn. The fifth was won by Schlech
ter. who- thus earned the distinction of
being the first championship aspirant to es
tablish a lead against Dr. I,asker at so
crucial a stage of a match for the title.
Steinitz. Marshall, Tarrasch and .lanowski
were not able to accomplish as much
in their encounters with the present cham
pion. Schlechter has an important ad
vantage in the concluding series to be be
gun here shortly, his score being 3 points,
whereas that of Dr. Lasker is only 2.
Details of the second game of the chess
championship match between Dr. Lasker
and Schlechter at Vienna, received her©
yesterday, show that Dr. Lasker, even
with the white side of a Ruy Lopez, the,
same opening played against him in the
first frame by the Austrian, had his hands
quite full to get a draw. This he accom
plished, however, after thirty-five moves'.

Princeton defeated Vale by a score, of 2
goals to 1 at the St. Nicholas Rink last
night, and thereby won the championship
of the Intercollegiate Hockey league, with
a clean string of victories. By an un
fortunate* arrangement of the schedule Tale
Tvas put out of the race in her first game,
and must finish the season without the in
centive of fighting for the title, now won
by the. Tigers. All Interest In the league.
so far a* the championship «dps, is now
at an end. with the schedule only half over.
The better team won last night, although
the losers put up a hard, plucky fight and
made their opponents work during every
minute- of play. For a time In the sec
ond period Princeton was on the defen
sive, but the winning- goal was scored by
Kay when Johnf-on, of Yale, x was oft the
Ice for rough work.
The same man was penalized three times
during the game, and twice In the first half
Yale had two men on the bench. Despite
this handicap, however, the Bulldog kept
the Tigers at bay. Not a Princeton man
was ruled off throughout the match, and
this had a bearing on the result. The
Tigers played good, clean hockey, were bet
ter at following up the puck, fell back to
help out the defence cleverly and did better
shooting. Then they had a Read on the
team, who broke up play after play and
was continually carrying the rubber Into
the opponent's ice. One of these rushes
brought about the winning tally, as he
went down the right side of the rink and
passed to Kay. The latter played a strong
game, and was in every play, while Pea
cock at goal made many beautiful stops
and clearer] well. The wings of both teams
were weak.
For Yale. Heron. Johnson and Martin
played hard, tho latter bring asgrespive.
but .missing (tome good openings. There
was lack of headwork and poor judgment
shown by the Blue at critical moments, and
the men did not follow In on goal to the.
best advantage.
For such an important game, with the
championship at stake and considering the.
keen rivalry of the sevens, the play was
not as rough as might have been expected,
although there was hard body checking and
stiff stickwork.
The biggest crowd of the season was on
hand, and the closeness of the score, with
the game In doubt right up to the last sec
ond, kept it at a high pitch of excitement.
At times the din was so great the referee's
whistle could not be heard.
The first half ended with Princeton in
the lead by one goal. Kay scored it tn a
little, less than five minutes. Following
this Loutre! was ruled off for a minute,
and a second later Martin followed him for
two minutes, hut despite th* advantage of
two men more on the ice Princeton could
not penetrate, Yale's strong defence. Lou
trel no sooner got back on the ie? #hr>n
Johnson took his place on the timer's
Yale w
"oppOTieflfp well, but could not. cage the rub
ber before the call of time. Just before
the half ended Johnson again went off,
this time for three minutes.' He was still
off wh«n play started in th» second period.
When he got back on the, ice he. made
a pretty run and hard shot, which Peacock
handled cleverly. Yale forced the pace for
a few minutes and kept boring In. but the
Timers came, back and kept Williams busy,
twice getting right in on him The- ga,me
was getting rougher and faster, and in a
little over six minutes Loutrel tied the
prore on a neat shot from near centre.
The Yale partisans went wild and the team
braced and kept the Tigers on the defen
sive. Rear] rtnallv broke, away. and. with
a great burst of speed, bore into Yale's ice,
and Just as he shot, Johnson tripped him
and Russell Mew his whistle a second be
fore the, puck landed in the net*. The goal
was not allowed, and It was hard luck for
Princeton. With Johnson still off Read
again broke through the opposing forwards
and passed to Kay. Th« latter dedgeri
Heron and Bwenson and broke the. tie.
There, was no further scoring, ,htit Tale
fought hard, and toward the end of th»
game the whole team went into the attack,
but the" Tigers stood It off successfully.

tories by defeating the Yale five In a stub
bornly fought game In the gymnasium at
University , Heights last night by a score
of II to i«. The game was so close that the
winner was in doubt until the final whistle.
Clever team work marked the play of th«»
home five, while the visitors showed skill In
throwing basket* from the floor. Yale
forced the fight in the first period and at
half time led by a score of 12 to ■#,
New York tied the score when Broadhead
caged a basket on the, opening of the sec

front again, when Captain Eames threw
two goals from the foul line and Drew
added one from the floor. From that point,
however, the tide turned. "vVnckenfeld and

Princeton Captain Offers Some
Radical Suggestions.
Despite, the fact that the Intercollegiate.
Swimming Association adopted new rules
for water polo only a few weeks ago. the
game as now played Is not satisfactory to
all concerned. After a thorough trial. Cap
tain Bamman of Princeton believes that.
Instead of introducing English methods into
the American ' game, it would have been
better to take up soccer, after modifying It
to suit the needs of the college swimmer.
He proposes to start a crusade in favor, of
a game he has in mind. From the way he
spoke one may assume that he has made a
close study Of the question and is ready to
meet all dissenters with sound and logical
"The trouble with aquatics." he said. in
discussing the subject, "is lack of co-oper
ation and organization. Were It possible
to get together the leading swimmers of the
various. sections of the country every side
of a question could be discussed and the
combination of views would lead to the
right thing being done. As it Is, the swim
ming department of the Amateur Athletic
Union Is practically a one-man affair, and
there is no effort on its part either to study
conditions or to find out what the, majority
want. The colleges are a little more pains
taking, but their field is naturally restrict
ed, as there is no community of Interest
with the swimming fraternity at large.
"The failure to amend the rules governing
American water polo two years ago, when
nine-tenths of our players wanted it done,
instead of being forced to take up soccer, is
just one little example of what I mean. And
I say this, not because of antagonism to
the "English game, of which I am a strong
advocate, but because I think it Is a. shame
to see a few Easterners make a pitiful at
tempt to popularize it when Westerners
won't hear of it nt all.
"To me both the idea of a badly inflated
rubber ball and the system of promiscu
ous scrimmages are distasteful, and I
must confess to preferring ft passing game
in which skill In handling the. ball Is
encouraged. At the same time, I think
soccer too tame. It hasn't sufficient hand
to-hand encounter to appeal to the aver
age student or club athlete. My sugges
tion is. therefore, to adopt the leather
basketball and to score by throwing, as
iv the English game, but to permit tack
ling whenever a player Is within four feet
of the ball. Then we will have an open,
spectacular game in which all the skill
claimed by the English will be In evi
dence, while the many fouls, calling of
which Is at present so aggravating to
spectator and player, will disappear com
pletely. The strenuously inclined will
also have ample opportunity to admire
their favorites in personal combat, though
the terrific scrimmages before goal, which
the referee dreads and in which men are
so severely punished, will be avoided.
"I don't claim the game I advocate as
a- discovery of my own. for I understand
that on» very similar to it was originally
in vogu* in this country, but had to bo
changed because of the diminutive size of
the pools in use fifteen or twenty years
ago. The ball, it seem*, was continually
going out of bounds, and it became neces
sary to make the scorer touch the goal
instead of throwing it in order to do away
with the constant interruptions. The solid
board was then introduced instead of th»
open goal, and the game became trans
these days of large pools the reason for
the solid goal has disappeared, and it will
Improve matters for every one if the
heavy, fully inflated ball is brought back."
After the intercollegiate tournament is
over we expect to try a little practice at
Princeton, with new rules, embodying my
ideas, and we will soon find out how they
work. Tf a? satisfactory as we expect,
we will take them to the association next
Some of the he«t exponents of American
water polo in the country share Mr. Bam
man's views regarding the improvement
that th» game he speaks of would be over
Cither poorer or rugby, but there is some
doubt as to the authorities' approval. Should
the college code not prove entirely satisfac
tory, however, there is small doubt that the
a.esiciation will try Mr. Bamman's methods
next season.
Mr. Bamman Is a well known athlete at
Princeton. He played on the 'varsity foot
ball cloven In I<V>? and was centre last fall.
He has performed creditably on track and
field, and has been captain of the. Prince
ton water polo team for two years.
