Brk-kley was the rock on whlcB the
-lixers split. and Brlckley waa the very

Boal almost. of the defeace, He
ciropped from slieer exhaustion and a
blow on the head just before the game
ended and Lingard was gebstltuted,

Harvard Started Badly.
Tb* Tlgi ra bad rather tbe better of

score I to ;: i . thelr favor. but they
?were . ..mpletely outplayed in the sec?

th.- forward paaaea deep Ib their own
lerrttory. whlcb indioated all too ciear
ly th< Impotenoa Of Ihelr attack against
the Harvard defence and thelr wllling
ness to stake all on the off chance.
They faih-.l on four or flve separate
eocaalocia. partty through the watchful
neis and n sourcefulii'-ss Of the Har?
vard bei ka and partly through the poor
egeeatlon Of the iorward paases, which
had worke.l ho well in the pecond
It was a perf.ct day for football, with
the air cool. c-lear and bracing. The
fleld was a blt slippery and treaeher
ous ln places, but on the whole was ln
good cOodltkM after the storm of yes?
terday. The temjK>rary seats at the
open end of the stadium were not fllled,
but otherwlse the rowa upon rows
whkh eeemed to plle skyward were
rrowded to thelr capacity by fully
30,000 men and women who showed
their love for football in no uncertain
The game was full of tense mnments
ami ao many exciting sltuatlons that
interest did not flag for a moment.
There was organlzed cheerlng and
fonie slnging, while a brass band
blartd forth from time to time, but
th.se were nothlng to the spontaneouB
shout. or, better yet, the spontaneoua
roar, which went up from time to
time as one toam or the other galned
a momentary advantage or made some
dnshing. brllltanl play.
Men who made ap Harvard'a cheer?
lng aectlon marcbed on ihe Held behlnd
their band, nnd when the CrtttTBOn
aquad came running OUt the greetlng
falriy ahook the atanda The Tlgara
followad B moment luter. nnd were met
by a roar from the live hundred Prime
toa men who had made the long Jour
ney, which was equal in eiithusiusm lf
not in volume.
Then the game began. and lt was a
real game. Prineeton forced the tight
Ing at the start nnd kept the ball In
Harvard territory most of the tlrst
quarter, but could not gel within BCOr
ing distance. Tlie Crimson. 08 tbe
other hand. did little or DO rushlng. and
played for time by punttng on the first
down with almost every line-up.
Breeze Bothered deWitt.
a poor punt by deWitt, wbo aeemed
?.. guffer all through tbe game because
of unfamlliaiity with the addylag our
ln th-- gtadlum, gave the Harvard
team Ita Bral chance t>> strike aa tiu
second quarter opened. The ruahtng
attach waa not strong enough to beat
down the- Prineeton defence, even with
the ball on the five-yard line. iharlie
Brlckley'a good right leg was an nss. t,
aad within three mlnntea he drop
kicked a gonl from the field from a
rath.r dlftlcult nngle when standlng
on Prlnceton'a flfteen-yard line. This,
to all appearances, only served to rouec
the Tig.ita, Bnd they came right back
with n touchdown. which for a time
changed the whole complexloo of tho
Oettlng the ball ln the centre of 1 ?
fleld, Andrewa hurled a long forward
to Pendleton for a eleaa galn of
twenty-flve yarda, and after deWitt
had loel five yarda in ? plunge at the
llne indrewa ahol another pass to
Waller on the other side c.r the fleld.
The blg Prineeton back was kiv
off hla ;>et by Gardner'a flylng tackle,
bul he rolled clear, an.i before the
..th.r Harvard m<n COUld pin him dowu
he m rambled ovcr the goal line f
touchdown. As said before. the punt
out failed. and the half ended a few
mlnutea later,
when the battli waa renewed a daav
ii-itii; fui.ilile ..:' a po..r pass hy deWitt
gavi Harvard the ball on Prlnceton'a
.VyanJ line. Again the defence of the
Tlgera was strong enough to hold off
the Crhnaon'a plunging attack, but.
again, Brlckley was equal to the call,
and dropped another goal from tbe
field. from the 18-yard line.
This Ued the score nnd inspired the
Crimaon to greater efforts. Three or
four minutes later Cardner made a fair
cat. h nf one of deWltt'l punts on
Prlnceton'a 17-yard Una ami once more
Hrl. kley BtOOd in the breach and with
little apparent effort, but unerring ac
curacy, sent the ball shootlng straiKht
between the poeta and over the cross
bar on a kick from plaoement
That was the turnlrig point, and, try
as they would, the Tigers could do
nothing to stem the tlde. In the last
quarter they were on the defenslve and
trylng to light out of thelr own terri?
tory most of the time. With every
thlng to galn and nothlng to lose, they
east discretion to the winds and falriy
played into Harvnrd'B baada with four
forward passes that were so poorly
made aa to be easily intercepted by
Harvard men.
Bsiekley could not go on kicking Koais
forever and failed ln three rather dlffl
cult attempts, but to make aaauraaee
doubly sure Harvard launched an Httack
in the last few minutes of plav which
had Just enough punch to send Hai'lwlck
plunglng over the goal llne for a touch?
down, which he quickly converted into a
Thus is told in a few words the atory
of a game which will live long in the
memory of thoae who looked on. It was
a game that ln a meaaure put the Tigers
out of the running for the BCH alled cham
plonahip and a game which beartened
Harvard men. who are looklng forward to
the struggle with Yale. three wceks from
No serious accldents marred the battle,
although Dunlap ln all probablllty haa been
lost to the. Tigers for tbe rest of the
Beason. The shouldei which has been

fambrldge, Mass.. Nov. 2.-Tn defeatlng
Princeton ln the Stadium to-day Harvard
showed a ?urprtatngty strong defaoee and
an attack whlch. thanks to the goal kiek

qulrement.i placed upon lt. Thls lad's
work in thls rcspect was not only the
most brilliant performance of the day. but
It is llkely to stand for many years as the
nnest exhibition of goal kl< king seen upon
any fleld.
It was Brlckley who made possible the
Crimsoti '.lctory, when the stalwart Tlgers
had tWfce beaten baek the attack of the
Crlmeoe at thelr goal llne. by the most
accurate and cleanest of drop klcks, and
it was Brlckley who placed his team ln

Bluethenthal was one man on the Tlger

much to his aggressive and splrlted play"
aa to the fact that he kept the other llne
rrfen up to the mark when the tlde turnM

as a leader Is greater than as a player,
whereln he ls splendid.
Prineeton Fumblea Costly.
It ls somewhat hard to reconcile th?
play of Harvard's forwards. especlally
the ends and tackles, when down the fleM
under Felton'a high punts. The latter
were as fine as wlll be seen thla scason,
with the prohable exception of Flynn'a,
at Yale, and they were sufflclent'.y high
to give hls team matea all the tlroe In
the world to get down under. Yet, tlms
and agaln PefadletOU, who was pla:.!ng
back ln the rirst half for Prineeton. fum
bled these punts, but had time to rrcover
them and g?t ur.der way before the <rlm

Here the Tigers may be crlticse^. for
