VALE HOPES RUN HIGH
Forecast Points to Defeat of
Harvard Eleven.
CAPTAIN DALY OPTIMISTIC
Outcome of Football Battle
Hinges on Effectiveness of
New Tackle Shift.
Captain m mly. of the- Tale football
rleven. raid to ■» yesterday: "We Have
treat hopes .f defeating Harvard. Tlw
tMn! li a much better team than faced
Princeton. It is better uH«IWi. physically
«r,d mentally. It '■> certain that Yale will

Hi- carne.-tne^ and contidenre were in

v equally Mem that Vale s • day o.

there is »ore reason to be optimistic.
Eetwetn th-se two fiTv^. then. the. poor

of football form finds it easier to point
to Harvard's clean string of games won
find Yale's broken string at games lost in
the effort to determine the winner of the
tattle of brains and brawn at Yale Field,
New Haven, to-day, but scores are mis
leading.
One week ago I had a firm conviction
that Yale would defeat Princeton, but
could find no logical conclusion, with the
Brown game fresh in mind, on which to
base ■ prediction. Since then the Yale
team has been under fire and not found
warning, and consequently there appears to
•be more reason for an equally firm con
viction that Yale trill defeat Harvard be
fore the sun j-ets this afternoon.
So different have been the fortunes of
,■- two elevens this season that it is lit
tle wonder that Harvard Is the favorite

beaten by Brawn and tied by- little Vander-

Imifn Dartmouth, among others. In a way
to imrress those who looked on that the
power was tremendous, the possibilities
«ndlefs The Harvard team was built on
a solid foundation of players tried and
true and carefully, patiently pointed to the
Btrneafte at New Raven The Yale team
was boat en ■ somewhat shaky founda
tion of players more or less green and In
experienced, but just as carefully and pa
tiently pointed to the Princeton and Har
vard came?
At Cambridge the eleven ha? been work

however, that the Yale motor will not run,
10-day, as it did at Princeton, and who
nbaH say that its power and efficiency are
3...- so great as Harvard's?
Under the new rules Barnes of the past
have little or no 1-earing on jrames of the
future. Football form has ever been be
wiidering. but never bo much as this, year
trhfi) ■rative F'>or«=s lead one into a
perfect maz^ of doubt and uncertainty. The
fact that Harvard is unbeaten means lit
tle or nothing, even In. the, face of two
f- tunning defeats Battered by Yale. The
teams must be judged an their latest form.
f<> that the games of last Saturday . are
the only ones which are likely to have a
bear: I
If rale's strength was measured by the
Brown- game Yale would be an easy vic
tim for Harvard, to-day, but. Yale's
strength must be measured by the Prince
ton game, when the team rose above dis
couragements that had beset its path, and
so clearly outplayed the Tigers, both de
fensively and offensively, that the score did
not show the relative merits of the two
teams any more than Harvard's small
{-■ore against West Point showed the out-
F! siding superiority of the Crimson eleven.
All ■mm aside, It may be pointed out
that l lartnioiit. 1 ! gained more ground by
rushing against Harvard than was the case
against Princeton, which Indicates, per
haps, that the Crimson defence was no
Ftrouger than that of the Tigers. Yale,
however, gained l.V> yards by rushing
« gainst Princeton, which, if the line is a
cood one. indicates that Yale, also ran
break down the Harvard defence for sub
i-tamial gains.
PrincfTLon could rot make much impres
sion by straight rushing against Dart
mouth, wsiercas Harvard scored one touch
down at least by tills method. Indicating
clearly a powerful offence, but the Tigers
foand Yalc'.s defence a veritable stone wall,
f=o far as Firaight rushing was concerned,
•which leads to the conclusion thai the Har
vard attack is quite likely to be repulsed
*5 oasil3'.
It has been said by a number of promi
nent coaches this year that one team
must be Dally 40 per cent stronger than
another to Boon by straight rushing under
the revised < - ode, and with the Harvard
lean <-' Its best and the Sale team at its
worst it could not be said tbat this differ
ence exists. As a matter of fart the elevens
appear to be rather evenly matched, both
Individually and collectively, so that tta-
Yes one or the other has devised a scor
ing play the outcome will depend on the
Keenness of one or more players on either
team m taking advantage of tho excep
tional opportunities which present them
t-elvcs so often In new football.
The loose ball, whether in punting, on
tide kicking or forward passing, opens the
way to these opportunities, and Is a. con
stant menace. .Much depends this year
on the speed of the ends and the
surcnets with which every man on the
team follows the ball, and on this hinges
iin<> i f my reasons for believing that Yale
will win. as Kilpatrick lias no equal, in
my «ipinion, in diagnosing a play and fol
lowing the la, while Brooks, Scully and
Paul also showed particular aptitude along
these lines in the Princeton same. The
Harvard ends and Harvard tackles are
«boy*» the- average, and are quite likely to
be just as keen and just as effective in
following a loose bail, but th*> advantage,
aT any. lies with Yale because of Kil
j-a trick.
I have said more than once this year
thai scoring by straight rushing appeared
to if a last art when two teams were
fairly evenly matched, but I am. disposed
nan to revise that statement, being con
vinced that Yale's tackle shift formation
brought out of the West by Tom Shevlin
is not only a ground gaining play but a
scoring play. On this I base another rea
son for Yale to beat Harvard to-day.
The play in question originated several
>ears ago in the mind of George Woodruff,
or co it seems to me, and was remodelled
to suit the new conditions by Dr. Harry
F. Williams, of Minnesota. It proved a
cood ground gainer against Princeton, in
* nswr* or less crude form, and now that
more time has been devoted to its develop
ment it is almost sure to prove a good
rround gainer against Harvard, more par
ticularly as it baa ramifications not dis
closed a. week ago.
Harvard, no doubt, will be prepared to
some extent, as Harvard aaaats were on
band to watch it closely at Princeton, but
an adequate defence is none too easy, be
cause of the fact that little time is left
after the shift for the opposing players
to properly adjust themselves to meet it.
Cats had no offence worthy of the name
against Brown, but Yale showed a most
effective one against Princeton, one short
week later, which bespeaks the effective
ness of the play.
Harvard has a puzzling and strong ekln
tackle play, which Is varied by covering

up the hall and pending a back through the
exposed side "f the line, which ha?- proved
<* good and consistent ground gainer in the
later games this rear, but Yak? defence
•will be harder to penetrate than the de
fense of Cornell ami Dartmouth, and. the
play does not appear to have the power
of Yale'F new tackle shift.
Further than that I am t^ld that one
of Harvard s strongest rushing plays bor
r« rP on being illegal and may be so de
clared by the keen-eyed I^angford. If this
prove to be the case the result might be
demoralizine. 1 have not Eeen the play in
question and do not take much sto^k in
the Funerption. in suite of the fact that it
ca-p.e from a thoroughly pood judge. Tt
strikes me, however, that Percy P. Hauph
ton is far to<> keen and f^re?i«hted to de
pend on a play which could be termed
illegal, arid consequently would act as a
boomerane Assistance to the runner hit
tine the line is paid to be the offending
point concerning the play in question
"The Harvard Alumni Bulletin" says in
it? current i«=ue: "Dartmouth"? errors had
as much to do with the size- of the score
a? Harvard's strength." This is a cold, un
biased opinion, hut as said before, the score
means little or nothing, and Harvard out
played Dartmouth, judged from a distance,
by about as mvi h as Yale outplayed
Princeton, and th» ease? nre somewhat
analogous, as errors led up to both scores
at Princeton last Saturday. Dartmouth
was quite the equal of Princeton in their
game m the Polo Grounds? several weeks
ago. when the Tigers, tl.anks to Pendle
ton, won by a score of 6 to *>. s>> that, for
gettlnt scores and looking only at the of
fensive and defensive strength of the va
rious teams. Vale and Harvard appear to
be wonderfully well matched to-day.
On all that has been seen on» eleven is
not behind the other in the fundamentals
of football, such as tackling, blocking,
breaking through, charging and provid
ing interference. As panted out in this
column yesterday. Harvard, in my opin
ion, can claim little or no advantage in
dividually, except perhaps in her substi
tutes. The outcome of the game, depends,
then, on whai I consider the greater ef
fectiveness of rale's wing as a
ground ga.in-n^ a t -i scoring play over Har
vard's ■well groomed attack, and r>n the
keeness of th« players of one side <>r the
other Jn following the hall and taking
quick advantage of opponent's errors.
The forward pass is too uncertain to be
considered, the play has not b^«:-n reduced
to a science and never will be, Tt might
lead to a touchdown, as it did in the Yale-
Princeton and rale-Brown games; it
might a>'t as a boomerang, as it di.l in the
Brown- Harvard and other games.
The case lias been made and can be
accepted for what it Is worth. In my
opinion the odds, for those who must
wager, should be at even money Vnder
new football the weaker team on h!1 the
essentials may win, but. everything else
aside, 34.0 M persons will see a football bat
tle on Yale Field to-day that will be bit
terly fought and cleaniy played— a football
h;ittle which, if s:pns point aright, has
rarely, if ever, been equalled.
HERBERT.
FOUR GAMES FOR HARVARD
Record Favors Yale in History of
Games in the Past.
The football elevens of Yale and Harvard
hare met on the gTidiron twenty-nine times
and Harvard has won only five games. Two
struggles went to a tie, while Yale has con
quered in twenty-three game?.
No games were played in 1595 and 1896 be
cause of some unpleasantness growing out
of the battle at Springfield. Mass.. in ]594.
Since football relations were renewed in
1837 Yale has won eight games to Harvard's
three, two being a tie at oto •. It is worthy
of comment that in that time the losing
team failed to score.

AYE ATQUE VALE FOOTBALL
Columbia Begins and Ends Its
Season on Same Day.
.Columbia began and ended its football
season yesterday when the freshmen were
defeated by the sophomores on South Field
by a score of 22 to 0. The first year team
played a hard game, but did not get within
striking distance of the sophomore goal
line. The game was clean and bitterly
fought. It was only in the last period that
the freshmen, giving way under the heavy
attack of the second year men. were swept
off their feet. Two touchdowns were scored,
in addition to two which the sophomores
had obtained in the first half, aided by
fumbles.
Although football has been under the ban
as an intercollegiate sport since 1905. more
than a thousand spectators were, stretched
around the. side lines on the field, a larger
crowd than has ever been present since
the days of the old games.
Ward, right halfback on the sophomore
eleven, fell on a fumbled punt on the fresh
men's 10-yard line and carried the ball over
for a touchdown within two minutes of the
'beginning of play. Shaw scored the second
touchdown in the second period on a ->-
yard run. and followed this by kicking the
goal. Maloy scored both of the sopho
mores' touchdowns In the last period.

A Wonder Over the High Rough Hills
Along the rugged passes in the line of the automobile's path, the Oldsmobilist
is never at a disadvantage. He is always quickest up the hills, and another never
passes him except with his permission.
The Oldsmobile always affords the height of comfort, whether on the smooth
pavements of the city or the rough roads of the suburb. The 101 1 Oldsmobile has
a particularly long wheel-base and particularly large wheels, which smooth our
bumps and fill in indentations. The motor has a long, powerful stroke that
contributes wonderfully towards comfortable, speedy and silent riding.
In the processions of the city the Oldsmobilist is never at a disadvantage cither,
for the lines of the 1911 models are handsome in every detail.

rhanr-e of playing- part of the game at

Word came from Farminaton. where the
Harvard scjuad is in camr. that the day
was devoted to walking and a short sienal
drill and punting pra. tice. No definite an

be understood that Wendell would s"art the
game at haliback instead of Ted Frothing

days. The players are in fine condition and
quietly confident.
Tom Shevlin. who whipped the Tale team
into condition to defeat Princeton, and who
has been on hand all this week, said: "We
have a good Yale chance ..f winning. After

may be."
Ted Coy, the head coach, said: "I think
our chances of winning- are good— very
good. 1 am confident, and everything looks
good to me."
The excitement and interest in the game
were never so great. The unprecedented de

possibility of a strong Yale "comeback"
have set everybody on edge.

between New York T'niversity and the Navy
and Trinity and th* Arm.. The result of
these two struggles wIH furnish a fair line
on the probable outcome of the game be
tween Annapolis and West Point next Sat
urday. On Election Day Trinity defeated
New York by a score of U to •?. but th»
teams were so evenly matched that they
will make gocd "trial horses. " Trinity has
one of the strongest eleven? among the
smaller colleges of the East this year, and
the Cadets will be compelled to put forth
their best efforts to win.
The Xavv has made a brilliant record so
far this season Among the elevens in th«»
"astern Dart of the country it is th» only
team whose goal line has not yet be«n
crossed. New York I'nlversity has a fast,
strong team, however, and the Navy will
get a thorough test.
Brown will have an easy opponent in the
Massachusetts Agricultural ' roUaae, while
a contest of much interest will be played
nearer New York between Stevens and Rut
gers at Hobck^n An intersectlonal strug
gle, also, is on the card between Syracuse
and the University of Illinois at Vrbana.
while I^afavette will meet T^ehigh at Eas

TIGERS TO PLAY MICHIGAN
Princeton Will Meet Hard Nine
Only Once Next Spring.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune 1
Princeton, N. J.. Nov. 18.— The rumor that
has been going the rounds of the Princeton
earnous for the last week that the Tigers
would Dlav Michigan In baseball next spring
was confirmed to-night, although no official
date was announced. This game has been
scheduled, on account of the vacancies
which are open on the Princeton schedule,
due to the fact that Harvard will be met
in only one game, instead of holding th«
usual series of three games.
A misunderstanding regarding dates made
the three-game series with Harvard impos
sible for next spring, much to the regret of
both universities, and it does not mean that
the series will not be played a3 usual in
future years.
