runner, won the rive-mile championship.
His time was 25:4& 2-5. Collins made a
■ preat finish at a sprinting pace He was
'twenty-five yards in advance of Fred Bel
lars and "Win" Bailey, both of the New
T"rk Athletic Club, who finished in the

The tie led to an accident as. in striving
to c>«-ar the bar. Byers fell and dislocated
his left elbow. For some time the com
petition stopped, while h« was cared for
by an ambulance surgeon from the New
York Hospital.
Babcock, the national outdoor champion
i trsd n*w»y elected captain of the Colum
bia track team, finally wnn second place
on the jump-off by equalling the winner's
va'jlt of 21 feet f- inches.
Old-timers rubbed their eyes in asronish
mem as a result of the thee standing
jump?. Ray C. Ewry. tlw New York Ath
letic Club wonder, whose spring muscles
'have made him invincible at the jumping
; frsrn* for nearly fifteen years, was at last
compelled to step aside in favor of that
rapidl y improving jumper. Dan Healy, of
the Pastime Athletic Club.
F!ar!y in the fray it became apparent to
all that the real fight would simmer down
to a three-cornered affair between Healy,
, ■;-■-- and Platt Adams It was noticeable
to rr.er.y that Ewry bad less of that erst
' while map. whereas. Healy seemed all
springs. .Adams was also at his best.
Finally Healy with a supreme effort
; Hear^d an even "»4 feet. This jump of
■ Healy's won the title. Adams getting sec
t end with S3 feet 10U inches and Ewry
third with 52 feet G\ inches, it was the
1 ret time that Ewry had been defeated at
i the three jumps.
Later in the evening Ewry failed to toe
the mark for the standing high jump, an
other of bis specialties, giving as a reason
that he was suffering from i sprained
' back. In his absence Platt Adams won
' quite handily.
Tn* 1 first event on the programme consist
ed of the li/»-yard championship. There
were three trial heats, and according to
the conditions the two third men with the
fastest time also qualified for the semi-final
trials. F. I>. Lukeman. the Canadian,
ruEfted away with the first heat in 16 sec
onds, and he had no trouble in winning his
semi-final tilt in timilar time. Jack Eller,
after winning his Jieat. .squeezed into the
finals by getting the place in the second
trial. Cloujrhen Cid not etart in tills com
In the decisive dash Ivjkenian showed m
front uli me way, but the champion from
Ottawa only beat Eller by inche-. .1 SI.
Itosenberger. winner of the recent national
outdoor championship at New Orleans, was
third. Lukenian. who has won three Ca
nadian titles, covered the dlFtaiice in 16
isecondF. which is a fifth of a swroni slower
than Klier made <i\er the same track a
;«r ago.
Something or a surprise was sprung in
the junior on*--mile run. It had been ex
pected that Matt Gets would account for
first prize, with Joseph Malone, the Mo
hawk 'cross country' runner, as a danger
ous factor. During the oarly stages v.
Powers, an Irish-American Club runner, set
the pace, but he gave way a little later to
Malono. who was closely attended by W. L.
JlcGe*v-of Philadelphia; Gels and O. iir-!
lund. of Brooklyn.
When the bell sounded for the last lap
McGee passed Malone and Geis also moved
up. 'but neither man was able to withstand
the unexpected rush of Hedlund. who !<:tt
the others a.s if they were anchored. w:i»
ring as nr- pleased by ten yards from Me-
Gee, with Gcir third The winner's time
was 4:25 t'C.
The band made a bit with the crowd by
striking up "Every LJttle Movement Has a
Meaning of Its Own" shortly after the wig
pjer.. were sent away for the three-mile
■enlor walk. Thif race, by the way, de
velbped into a great race between Sam
Li'-fccold. the champion, and Timothy Car
roll, who won the thre*-mile championship
in Ireland as far hack ar twenty-one
years ago.
At i... the distance Liebgold »nd Carroll
were in the lead, dosel: pressed by R
Schwartz, another Pastime mar. About
this time V P Hunt, who won th«> junior
• Monday •-•Mine, was disqualified
for skipping
A mile from home LJebgold took the lead
from his rival, and thereafter the evergreen
Carroll, though full of fight, never suc
ceeded in showing in front. The. pair hoofed
it round and round at an ever increasing
speed so that it did not seem possible for
them to do any more, yet when the bell
sounded for the final lap both men went
even faster.

"Dope' 9 from Football Critics
Harvard Is Stronger than Princeton. Says One.
While Others Fail io Agree.
Football critics are not of one opinion
this season on anything or any team be
yond the fact perhaps that the game is
safer and freer from injuries. One thinks
Harvard is wonderfully strong, another
that the eleven is overrated. One says
litre that Yale is already beaten by Prince
ton and Harvard; another says there that
Yale will be ready when the time cornea
and will make the Tigers run to cover and
humble the Cambridge forces. According
to some Pennsylvania ranks at "•■ top,
while others deprecate the "poor" showing
against the Carlisle Indians. Home say
I rlncet day has come, others contend
that Princeton was lucky to beat Lafay
ette and Dartmouth. Bo It goes
Harvard and Princeton am the only
teams in the East, of those which deserve
a ranking, that have not been beaten or
scored on. Cornell and the. Navy liav<
not been beaten either, but they have been
tied and Cornell scored on. Yale, Pennsyl
vania. Dartmouth and West Point among
others have tasted defeat.
Harvard is stranger than Princeton, is
the avowod declaration of "Touchdown"
In "The Boston Journal He cays:
After seeing Princeton play Saturday and
Harvard in 1 •»■ Brown game, I believe that
Harvard could defeat the Tigers, provided
Harvard could abstain from the fumbles
which marred her game at West Point,
and this whether or not the Tigers also
flayed errorless football.
The Princeton roaches think otherwise.
They said Saturday night that if Dart
mouth's team would follow its logical line
of development and "get together" in the
next fortnight Saturday's game at the
i'olo Grounds in -\'ew York will have Bel
tied the "championship" in the East.
In this consideration they ignored Perm
and took Yalf- for granted ... doubt thti
wish was father to the thought. They
certainly, in my opinion, underestimate
Harvard's present ability to Inject second
end even third string men Into a game
without ruining team efficiency.

the score of 2 goals to 0. N. Richards, in
side ripht for the Oceanic, scored both the

half. He and B. Richards, at inside left;
I/inrmnn, centre halfback: F. Hendry,

greatly to brine about the victory.
For the. losing team Nlblock, the left
fullback: Button, at centre forward, and
Lee, outside left, wre conspicuous for
brilliant play.
Hal Chase, captain and manager of th*
Yankees, defeated Sid Mercer in the Class

Marked improvement was shown by the
university team, both in team work and
in the diversified methods of attack. New
football was used almost entirely, forward
passes, wide end runs and delayed passes
being used to gain the required distance
for a first down It is true that Yale was
held for downs four times within th.- ten
yard line, but this ran be explained as
partly the result of the new rule against
assisting the. runner.
Howe played in ins first game of th«
season and Yale's consistent gall were
largely due to his sensational end runs and
well executed forward passes.

Signal Drill for the Tigers.
R. T« eirravti to The Tribune. 1
Princeton. N. J., Nov. 1.-A lons and fast
signal drill took the place of the usual
scrimmage for the Princeton 'varsity foot
ball team this afternoon. Every member
of the first eleven, with the exception of
Brown, ran through the signals for more
than half an hour.
Little fault could be found with the work
of the players at any time in the drill, and
coaches and students alike left the field
well satisfied with what they had seen. Old
and new plays were run off with wonderful
speed and precision. Roper would not be
satisfied with anything but perfect execu
tion of the plays, and. as a consequence,
they had to be rehearsed several times in
some instances before he would allow them
to pass. He constantly urged the men to
faster work, and there was plenty of life
and spirit throughout the drill.
Sawyer took Brown's place at fullback,
but otherwise the 'varsity team lined up
intact. Pendleton was at half, and despite
his bruised knee had more of his oldtime
dash and speed than he has displayed since
the early games .if the season.
After the 'varsity men had finished their
drill two teams were picked from the scrub
for a short scrimmage. In this game a
line plunger was brought to light the like
of whom has not been seen in Princeton
since the days of Tim McCormick. His
name is Thompson, and he con* from the
West, where he won the all-around athletic
championship at Chicago last year. Un
fortunately for the Tigers, however, he is
attending the Princeton Theological Semi
nary and came over to the university grid
iron this afternoon for a little exercise. He
found the exercise a little strenuous, but
he created a small sized sensation among

[By Telegraph to The Tribune ]
Philadelphia. Nov. I.— Pennsylvania's

Him Closely at Atlanta.
Kerscher May Not Be Allowed to
Drive the Cars in Great
Driver's "Stable."
Word came from Atlanta yesterday *hi*
the automobiles in whirr-. Oldfleld has rar^j
all over the country prior to his Indefinite,
suspension by th* American Automobile
Association had been accepted by the rsaa
agement of the Atlanta meet as entries^.
These cars are a Darracq. a Knox arw4 %■

field ir order to get his cars on to t5»
track had sold. or, rather a bill of gala
had been given Kerscher of. these two cars.
At the .-** .. of th» conte3^ board ot tri«
American Automobile Association It was
stated last night that Samuel Butl»r. chair.
m.in of the contest board, hart started for
Atlanta on Monday night to be on the)
ground when the races were ran on Thurs
day. Friday and Saturday of thi3 week ar.d
to watch th» situation.
After Oldfleld and Jack Johnson had
driven their hippodrome moving pirrurw
race at Sheepshead Bay last w-ek Oldfield
went directly to Atlanta, stating that he
would carry the war into the camp of th«
American Automobile, Association and that
he had no fear of th» outcom* His ord*r
of suspension bars him from any track
sanctioned by the governing body or arr
race meet so sanctioned either as promoter,

no information concerning the driv-r ot
the Benz car. so it is evident that OldSeld
decided the wisest thing to do was la main
no effort to use that particular rraehl-e.
but to make his fight on the other two
cars, the Darraeq and the Kr.ox. which
have been the other two members of his
-racing stable."
K«rscher has for som» time been a mem
ber of the Oldfleld camp and has trax--ll«j
with him widely, driving the Darrac-; ard
'acting as Oidfleld's helper in many ways.
There is no suspension operative acainst
him. and his entry could naturally be ac
cepted by the Atlanta manag»m»nt with
out tea of incurring the displeasure of
the American Automobile Association.
It was pointed out. ho»»w, at the
American Automobile Association offlce
yesterday that the bill of sale was a.
palpable subterfuee to get Oldf.eld's cars'
on the track, that while the existing st»
pension did not operate against these fro
cars as it does against the B-nz. the
American Autorr Association would be
inclined to resent this action as a further
defiance of its authority, and if the mar.
agement persisted in receiving the entries
of Kerscher to use these cars it is entire: 1^
within the power of the content bnard to
withdraw the sanction granted to J. H.
Nye for this three-day meet.
The Senegambian in the wood supcly is
that the Atlanta managemerr has a con
tract with Oldfleld to appear made befnr*
his suspension was announced. Hence th«
report that it has accemed Ker«ch* r s
entries. J. H. Nye Is a successful and a.
wise manager. He has arranged a thr-»
day meet which has nev»r been approached
in th?s country for class ot entries. It is
hardly to be ?'irrnw that he win jeopar
dize- his meet for Mr. Oldfreld ? contract.
more especially since counsel retained b-r

advised that Oldfse!<: contract could not
be enforced, as it was made with the un
derstanding that OldSeld was in sood
standing. In fact, he was a: tba ttee tie
