Go to Lakewood For Change and Res*; Get
the Change, But Little Rest.
[P>- Tel(??r«ph to Th" Tribune.]
Lakewood. N. J.. Nov. 10.— The Princeton
football squad, numbering twenty-four men,
accompanied by Bill Roper, head coach,
and his assistants— Harlan and
Waller— arrived In Lakewood this morning
for a change and rest before that all im
portant contest— the Yale game. The men,
without exception, are in perfect physical
condition, and Keane Fitzpatrlek, the
trainer, expects that their brief sojourn in
this comparatively quiet spot and the con
sequent removal from the bustle and excite
ment that always occur In Princeton at
this time of year will put the final edge on
his charges. In fact, tho pine perfumed
air, with Just a touch of salt in it, has
already worked wonders, if the insis
tent cries of the men this evening to "bring
on the fatted heifer" mean anything.
In spite of the fact that the ostensible
purpose of bringing the team here was to
give them ■ rest the men had rather a
full day. Following; their arrival here the
majority of the squad went for a short
walk before luncheon, while the afternoon
was given up to signal practice at Georgian

evenings until 7 o'clock. This action was
taken at the meeting of the university
trustees on Monday !.ist, and at Hie same
time they made provision for the Improve

The primary object in having the univer

was to enable the- alumni to exercise, but
already the managers and coaches of the
basketball and wrestling teams have prac
tically decided to have the regular practice
in Hie. "open*! evenings. This In Itself will
attract 'he alumni, and ii will also give
more men un opportunity to become candi
dates for the various teams, which they
are unable to do now on account of late
afternoon lectures which conflict with regu
lar practice hours! The opening of the
gymnasium vlll I.- tentative until the en.l
of the present academic year, when. if the
attendance warrants, it will be thrown open

through the .signals with speed and pre

to which considerable time was devoted,
but whether he intends to use them or not
on Saturday is yet to be seen. ,
Particular attention was given to the
backs in regard to handling punts, and
Roper kept them catching the long spirals
from the toe of "Nibs" Harlan or the
equally difficult punts of Ballou until early

Be One of the Great Football
Contests of the Year.
1 Mv Telegraph to TTt^ Tribune. 1
Philadelphia, Nov. 10.-The University of
Michigan football team arrived here this
afternoon for Its game with the University
of Pennsylvania at Franklin Field on Sat
urday. The Wolverines hurried out to
Wayne, on* of the cUy . s suburbs and will
remain there until the morning of the
game. Yost lost no time in getting his men
out on a nearby field and sending them
through a spirited signal drill. Every mem
ber of the team was In tiptop condition and
confident that Michigan would beat the
Quaker? The team will have another sig
nal practice to-morrow.
"Harry Up" Yost, the head coach, paid j
In discussing the game:
"I am not prepared to say who will win,
but I am very sure that this will be one of
the greatest games of the year. I know
What Pennsylvania Is after the way th*
eleven swamped Lafayette last week. The
Quakers played magnificent football, but
they will meet a better team In Michigan.
I am not saying we will win, but Pennsyl- J
vania will know that this has been one
great football game when it hi over "
The Quaker squad Is still out at Media.
This afternoon Smith, the head coach, and j
Dr. Carl Williams sent the first eleven j
through a spirited signal drill. Every reg
ular, with the exception of Ramsdell. ran
through the signals. Ramsdeirs lameness
seems to stay with him, and the coaches
are worried over his condition. It was*
rumored that be might not he able to start
against Michigan, In which case Harring
ton would have to take nls place. But
Murphy, the trainer, paid he expected to
have the great sprinter ready to start the
game at leapt. All the other members of
the team are in magnificent condition.
There has been some argument over who
the officials should be. Pennsylvania was
willing to leave the matter to the central
board of officials, but Michigan insists that
there shall be some Western man on the
field, and to this Pennsylvania agree? It
has already been decided that Walter
Eckersall, of the University of Chicago,
shall referee, and Carl Marshall, of Har
vard, umpire. lieutenant Beacham, of
West Point. Is to the head linesman. Th»
field judge will be announced later.

Kins of the football te;tm w.is seriously

quently the line-up against the Carlisle

work at left tackle, but as ■■* leader ot' the

the big crew man and lacrosse player. Sev
eral members of the squad are suffering
with grip and others have bruises or
strains, but It is not likely that any but
King will be kept out of the game more
than a few days. The Carlisle Indiana will
arrive here to-morrow and will be the
guests of the midshipmen until after the
game.

MR. SHARP ALSO INJURED
Fatal Accident Casts Gloom Over
Big International Race at
Savannah.

Savannah. Nov. lf>.- A Inert PUefcft m?- (
chanir for Wllli.im Ff. Sharp and drtv»r ->• j,
a 40- horsepower Sharp-Arrow rarins ear; *i
that was fiawd for • ■•:•-■ Trtx roa-T
race here on Saturday, was k: RjJ th!i
morning: when the machine overturned 1 on
Ferguson aver-i^. Sharp was also in
jured and is now In BBS Savanrah Hospital.
At the hospital it was reported that
Sharp was s:iff»rinsr from shock, bur that
th« first examination bad disclosed n->
broken bones. While :r.e first report* had]
it that be had been ,i|nr«( internally, ft
hospital authorities said there were no in
dications that sueli was the case.
The fatal accident occurred about !I
o'clock, when the Sharp was making If*
first daily trip around the circuit. Th*
car was Just entering a Bltght gradual
bend to th- rijcht after having ?on« over
an apparently straight !*vet stretch, when
it swerved off the road to th* I»f?.
ploughed up about fourteen feet of lhr>
ditch, knocked down seven heavy fene*
posts and turned over.
"AI" Poo!e. the racing driver, who '*
here to watch IBS ra^ea. was one of th«
early arrivals at the scene of the accident.
A ne<rn> convict who had been working on
the road near hy foM Pool* that FtacllS ha f l
said something to S.iarp Jost before !»•
accident. Sharp had firned to look »**•'<
along the course, and then, th» eonvW saM.
the car swerved off th* road. Th# I*ft
front tire was torn from the wheel and ex
ploded as It «as torn off the rim.
It is practically certain that Fuchs ■*•*
killed instantly, t'oroner Goetr* said tha:
his spinal column had he*n broken sj th<=»
waist line, his skull fracture ar fh- bark
of his head, his left ana broken N»low th»
shoulder and his right leg broken atwv*
the ankle. Fuchs wa3 married and for
merly lived in Trenton. N. J.
There had been some muttenn«s of dl«
content among ""me of the driver? of th*
big cars entered for th#» Grand Prix rtcfl
over 'he acceptance- si the Sharp •ntry.
Sharp has had vry Bt«* experience wtth
a raring car. and a lot of the drivers saM
it was dangerous to permit him to com
pere. His machine appeared to be fop
aaavy and to b« too lisrht for " : --» power of
Its emrin*. He Bad drawn first position li
the aHrument of number? for Saturday's
rac<».
The practice to-day xas» products* of.
the fastest time yet made on the course.
Pishlmwsi rushed over one lap of ths
1 17.3 miles course in 13 minute? ->5 seconds,
or at the rate or seventy-six miles an hour.
Th« drivers have been trying to determin**
on a speed which v a- ■■•' for their tir»s
without burning off the shoes. On tne
FU.IJUSSB backstretch. a clear road of five
mile? straight as the bee heads for his
hive hewed out of the forest for the first
Grand Prize race two years ago. they
' find that they cannot sr» much aboro
eighty miles an hour without literally bum-
Ins up their tire?.
Wagner also drove i Cast lap. Jomptsg
his car up to seventy-two miles an hour,
I while Hughes. Chevrolet. Disbrow and
Basle fairly fl>w tfver the course.
The entire city ■■■ gone race mad. Th*
streets are filled with people iaIhlB« time*
', and cars and the rash to the course to wit
ness the light car race to-morrow already
has begun.
There are innumerable makeshift grand
stands along th© entire course and th»
i BBatht before scenes are not unlike tho3»
for the Vanderbilt cup race, on Loas;
Island.
Too much praise cannot t« siven th-*
Savannah men and the Savannah Auto
mobile Clot for the work done in th»
I twenty-eight day.i since it was decided to
hold the race here. They have butit- th»
most perfect course for an automobile rac»
ever seen in this country; they have ar
i ranged to police it with militia: they hava
! erected warning signs of every turn for
the information of the racing drivers and
biy arrows at the actual turn?, and they
have also indicated the sofr and danger
spots by blue flags. Beyond ail tax*, t&a
grandstand k-= ready to-nignt for the X&OW

' and seat themselves to-morrow. This 13
