However, it is believed that rrincetoii has more solid foundation for her high hopes or victory than at any time for years. The advantage of having most of her old team intact is uniucstionabc. The men are working together splendidly, and added to this, the men are considered individ ually superior to the Yale kickers. Opposed to these bright hopes of the Tigers is the dogged "never-saj -die" spirit which has carried the Yale blue to victory in many a hard fought game of the last. Tins fierce and dogged determination has more than once turned a seeming defeat into a brilliant victory, and her supporters are reiving greatly on this in tomorrow's game. Princeton ought to win on form, but Yale is cure to fighl desperately, it will be a grcnt game, and in the opinion of many experts Hie score will be very small. uucis in belting .we being given on rrince- ton, but very few bets are being placed.

Dnnlop, her great liair. Is out or the game Tor tomorrow and scvenl other men an: In poor condition. Not withstanding these setbacks, the crimson eleven will put up a great fight against the Quakers. Harvard may liedcfenteil, but never disgraced. Her plucky and uphill rights In the past have earned her the admiration and respect of all the other colleges. The Quaker eleven has been removed to Delaware Water Gnp, where they will remain until this evening. In that sylvan spot among the whispering pines nnd mur muring brooks. It is believed that the men will gain the needed rest to brace their nerves for the ordeal of tomorrow. The team Is confident or vanquishing the Harvaid eleven by- a good score. Also they believe that the crimson will not be able to bcore. In both these big games the clement of uncertainty lends .1 special interest, particu larly in the Yale-Princeton mate Ii. These, games will bring ton fittingclcsea fcason or unusually succcssrul sport on the grid iron. QUEER WHEELMEN WON. VlHltors Not Only Lend by Goals!, but Game Was Forfeited to Thorn.
