CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 2 By
providing a crisp, cool, bright day, the
weather man has done his best to atone
for the rain he gave yesterday that
thoroughly soaked the gridiron In the
Immense concrete stadium whom the
on of Princeton and Harvard buttle
today for the football championship
before 34.000 persons.
The coaohes of both elevens look for
a hard, close game. The slippery going
I) will probably be of assistance to the
1 heavy Harvard attack, but Head Coach
Logan Cunningham declined to admit
that his Tigers would be Inconvenienced
much by the mud.
Both Harvard and Princeton have a
nearly perfect attack. Their backtleldH
are fast, know the game, and ran bo
depended upon to light to tho last sec

relies much on line shifts, varied with
the running of Hobey Baker and "Tol"
Pendleton. This Is expected to swine
the victory to tho Tigers.
WendeU Should Shine.
Harvard counts on Captain Wendell
and Charlie Brickley to shine most
gloriously today. Wendell's weak ankle

surest and most accurate kickers In
the Eaet.' Hardly u game has gone by
this ypar without his booting a couple
of field goals from scrimmage, Prime
ton will probably watch for him, but
the Crimson coaches believe he will
kick at lenst one Held goal.
Harvard's eleven Is almost un even

though slightly heavier The enllro
team averages 177 pounds, three pounds
more than Princeton. The Crimson for

course of the battle In Penn State's
favor. He Is practically unstoppable

Poor Outlook for Goal
Shooters at Hilltop
Candidates- for the Georgetown Uni

tiam have been ordered to report for
their initial workout next Monday after
noon In the It) an gymnasium, and ac
cording to all Indications one of the
largest squads ever out for the'aport on
the Hilltop will report to Coach Joyce.
The basket hall sumo at the Blue and
Gray prep school Is more or less de
i 'orallicd this year, no all of last sea
son's regulars are gone clthor grad
uated last June or failed to be enrolled
thts fall. Only Bcrldlnl, a substitute, Is
left of last winter's District scholastic
champions, and he, In nil probability,
will be chosen tn captain tho squad
which will thlB year endeavor to de
fend successfully the championship title
won last ear by the star quint com
posed of lid Mriuiii Hilly Martin, who
was oaptaln. Oswald Dally, Herbert
I nne, Earnest Nordllnger, and Edward
Crowe was chosen captain for the
1912-1C13 learn last spring, but as ho
failed to matriculate on the Hilltop
this year, n new leader will have to be
chosen, while Murum. Martin, Duller,
end Lane have nil enteied the George
town t oiiege, anil ure consequently in
eligible for all prep teams.
Despite the fact that llerldlnl Is the
only man left of last year's squad, pros

Georgetown's pride, and Tenney, Brown
University's great running halfback.
Perhaps, when all in said. Miller Is the
brightest star of the wholo team. Phil
adelphia's still remember with what
brilliancy this H2-pounder caught the
first kick-off under his goal posts last
yenr and raced the length of the field
through the Quakers, dodging this one,
stuff-arming the next, and sliding away
or outrunning the thtrd would-be tack

Penn State llnf-up.

a marvelous goal kicker, either from
placement or hy drop-kick, la a ver
itable tornado when he starts plunging
Into the line. When called upon to punt,
seldom does he fall to boot the ball at
Itast s'xty yards.
Engle Powerful.
Much of Penn State's offense Is built

tips the bam at 190 pounds, and uses
every ounce In every game. Cornell

Crimson va. Tigers.
The it-ally big game toda In the
East is that buvveen Harvard and
Princeton at Cambridge. It looks like
nn even thing, the slippery field favor
ing sllghtlv the heavier Harvard eleven.
Not since 1887 has a Harvard eleven
triumphed over Princeton. Today tho
Crimson has a chance. It la very prob
able that today's winner wlH be the
year's champion.
Georgetown crippled.
Georgetown Is fortunate In having a
comparatively weak opponent at Rich
mond today. North Carolina has shown
nothing so far this season to warrant I
Its being able to do much with the
sturdy Blue and Gray, crippled us It Is
today. It Is quite probable that George
town will have a substitute backfleld In
the game very early, but no trouble
shouid be experienced in winning.
Baltimore excited.
Baltimore's athletic wizards are be
come greatly ularmed at the Amateur
Fedoratlon of the District of Columbia,
fearing lest tho suzerainty so long en
Joyed by Baltimore In track sports In
this section be lost. It Is surprising to
the gentlemen of Baltimore to havo the
District authorities refuse longer to
take orders, but prefer to glvo a few.
Penn State favorite.
Penn State's husky eleven Is favored
over Pennsylvania for .today's victory
on Franklin Field and the cup of the
Quakers' misery Is running over. John
Hollenback has u strong, fast team
under his charge, und It will be most
surprising to have It defeated. Penn
State Is looked upon to add to the proof
mounting to tho skten that Dr. Carl
Williams must go, If Penn would win.
Cunningham's test
This is the tost day of Logan Cun
nlnghum, und all Washington Is inter
ested. He is a Washington hoy, a
graduate of local schools, and started
his own football career on local grid
Irons. Later he becume a star punting

the deadllness off a mountain current.
Quakers Are Weak.
The Quakers are weak this season and
nothing but gloom rests upon Pranklln
Field. It Is almost a foregone conclu
sion that Hollcnback's team will win
today. Andy Smith's course at Penn
Is about done und, with Hollenback
triumphing over his alma muter, thero
Is likely to bo u demand for his ser
vices at Penn
However, those who know the Inside
of the football situation at Philadelphia,
say that Hollenback will never accept
the position as head coach of the Red
and Blue while the present board of
strategy Is In control. They declare that
he Is too Independent to bow- to a lot of
silk-stockinged "experts" when It cornea
tn teaching football.
That's why. Indeed, that he Is at Ponn
State this year. That's why, too, that
he will In all reliability turn loose upon
Franklin Field this afternoon a football
eleven trained to the minute In every
way. and It will be strange If Miller and
Mauthe and Engle and Very do not

'Unofficial" Victory Over

to Sailors.
ANNAPOLIS, Md, Nov. 1 Although
the muddy field and slippery ball made
really keen football out of the question
during yesterday's "unofficial" gume
between the Naval Academy and West
ern Reserve, there were some signs
that afforded the members of the Navy
contingent a little encouragement. One
of these was tho return of Cuptaln
Itodes to the game after an Illness with
a new lease of football spirit and abil
ity. While never regarded us au great
player, the Navy captain won his posi

and ha Is a safe, reliable man, a fair
ground gainer and very anxious to

Nlchoils started tho game at quarter
back and played uirtll about the middle
of the second quarter, when Rodes suc
ceeded him. Both did notable work in
handling tho wet ball after punts, thecr
being not u semblance of a fumble on
the part of either. Both are now work
ing ut quarterback, but It Is not unlike
ly thut the coaches will keep Nlchoils
In the position and place Rodes ut full
back next week, as both appear to be
necessary on the team. Nlchoils Is u
better runner with the ball thnn Rodes,
while the latter has a great steadying
Influence on the team
With this arrangement the coaches
have Ingram, McReavey, railing, Leon
ard, Bates and Alexander from whom
to choose for the other backs, while
Mitchell has been doing notable woik
on the scrubs. Ingram, formerly center.
Is almost sure of a place, n-hllo Mc
Reavey and Fulling are both big chaps
of line hitting ability. Leonard Is a
clever runner with the ball and dectd
edyl the best punter on the squad, but
his lack of weight he weighs only 117
pounds Is a handicap.
After the Navy had scorod In the sec
01 d quarter they played safe and de
clined to take any more chances than
possible with a slippery ball und un a

The Navy team wns dlftlnctly stronger
man tneir opponents, nowever, nnn
should have piled up a good score un

tho scrub, big Brown was with the
regulars again yesterday, and it Is
hoped that lha warning will do him

Presence of Atlantic Fleet in
Nearby Ports Is Re
sponsible. ANNAPOLIS. Md., Nov. 1 When the
books of the Navy Athletic Association
were closed the executive commltteo
found Itself confronted with the usual
dilemma of how to supply the multitude
of demandB for tickets to tho Army
Navy football game to be played In
Philadelphia November 30 out of the
limited number of tho coveted paste
boards that will be available.
Each year the demand for stats at
tho big Inter-service game bus grown
greater and greater, and this year Is
no exception. In fuct, the number of
requests that have been Bent to Lieut
Arthur P. Fairfield, the secretary and
treasurer of tho association. Is even
proportionately greater, compared to
former yeurs.
The heavy demand this year Is large
ly due to the presence of the vessels of
the Atlantic fleet at nearby ports, und
consequently a greater number of offi
cers will desire to attend the big game
and have, therefore, sent in their re
quests for tickets. And the local de
mand, too. Is somewhat greater, due
to the larger number of officers assign
ed to the Naval Academy staff this
term, together with those taking the
post-graduate courso ut the engineer
ing school and assigned to the fleet of
warships attached to the local station,
which Is larger now than at this time
last year.
And despite the fact that the Beating
capacity of Franklin Field, which 1b to
be the scene of tho battle, Is greater
by nearly 5,000 than last year, still
there w'U be many of those who havo
applied to the navy end for tickets who
will be sorely disappointed at not get
ting them.
As Is generally the cusc, all members
of the Athletic Association, as well as
the Midshipmen's Athletic Association,
contributors of annual dues to the sup
port of athletics at the Institution, will
be looked after first, and what tickets
are then left will go to tho general
At a recent meeting of the executive
committee it was decided to allow each
member of the Athletic Association
three tickets, as formerly. The same
quota will be distributed among tho
midshipmen. Mcnibere of tho football
team and squad will be given a few
more. The distribution of the tickets will be
gin about November 15.
