Oliphant Is Miracle Man of Army-Navy Game Witnessed By Thousands
NEW YORK, Nov. 28. Adherent of the Army and Navy -who are
leaving the big city after the annual service football Rame when Army
mashed her way to a 14 to 0 victory have the name of one young sol
dier on their tonsucs "Ollle" Oliphant. This versatile rrjdlroner car
ried the contest to the West Pointers almost single-handedly and gave
them their tenth victory over Navy in the scries of twenty games in
which they have figured during that number of years. Navy has won
nine times and one game was a tie, that of 1005.
So, Oliphant has entered into that sublime atmosphere in which tho
Brickleys, Coys, and others have scintillated ever since their names were
made famous on their respective gridirons, and he won his graduation
into their class by revealing himself as master of tho game in all its de
partments in. yesterday's important struggle.
At making long gains he is no better than at kicking off and
making accurate punts, and he can hit 'the line as hard as he can
boot perfect goals from touchdown. At all he is a marvel and he
proved it in the a'cid test which came in yesterday's game.
More Jhan 40.0UO men and women
braved pneumonia and cheered them
rclves hoarso aa tho two teams fought
over a aoicgy, allpperv Held which, at
Intervals, waa swept by a drizzling rain.
Ituliblns elbows with Just pluln Ameri
cana Jammed In tho Polo Ground were
dozens of generals, colonels, and what
nots of the army, admiral and rear ad
mirals from the navy, and ait many
Cabinet ofTlclals and undersecretaries as
the Government could spare without
moving all Washington hero for the day.
It wan a roal Army-Navy scrap, fought
only as tho Middles and CadcU can
llcht when they come together, atjd a
real American crowd looked on and
Tho President. If he likes, can say "his
side" won. because he was sitting In
the Army stands when the end came
and the Middles left tho Held defeated,
but still same and full of fight. With
Mrs. Gait. Ills tlancce; Secretary and
Mrs. McAdoo. Col i:. M. House, and
other members of his party, the Prist
dent spent the tlrat half of tho game on
the Navy side. Hut he failed to -rlntr
them luck.
In the Mrst few minutes of the first
period things begun to lisppen, and be
fore tbrnr stopped Oliphant was ecross
the. line with a touchJnuu. After the
Chief Kxecutlve had Joined the Cadec
f oi res Oliphant smashed through agnl.i
and hung up the Army's second touch
down. This was In the third period.
The glory for the Army victory goes
to Oliphant. Ho scored both touch
downs, kicked both goals, and when
yords were needed after the Navy hail
held the other Army backs, alwats It
was Oliphant who smashed through the
Middles' defense. Once through the first
line, ho wiggled, squirmed, fought, and
scrambled his way first one yard, then
two then It was live, and on until tho
entire Navv team smothered him to tho
ground. The fast, powerful hack
ripped off run after run of from fifteen
to thirty-five vurcis. Oliphant's second
touchdown was from the :5-yard line.
McEwan had intercepted a forward pass
and ran It back thtrty-flve yards when
Oliphant was called on after other
straight line smashes hail failed. Tho
former Purdue boy hit hard and low.
He emerged from tho tangle of for
wards. Dodging and twisting, ho eluded
the secondary defense. Only Craig, tho
Navy quarter, stood behind him und the
goal. Oliphant outfooted lit in und
planted the ball behind the posts.
When "Oliphant" Is said, tho story of
tho Army attack is practically told. A
few forward passes wcro tried by the
West Pointers, but with little result.
Kicking honors were largely even, but
aa tho Navy held with considerable suc
cess against tliu attacks of Coffin, Ford,
and Mitchell. It fell to Oliphant to de
liver on the ground gaining. The Navy
railed on straight football except during
the last period. Then they resorted to
do or dlo tactics. '
Blodgett replaced von Helmberg at
left end for the Middies. Ho Is about
as tall as tho mainmast of one of tho
ships of the Atlantic fleet, and about
him tho last efforts settled. Illodgett
would drop back as though to punt, and
from his mast-llko arm would drop the
ball In the general vicinity of where ho
thought a teammato would bo. Some of
his shots In theso attempted forward
passes wero from twenty-five to thirty
When the ball reached the end of Its
flight, however. It failed to meet a
friend. A half dozen of these passos
were tried, but those that did not go
outside fell uncompleted, und .the bull
was brought buck.
A dramatic Incident came in tho
fourth period. With his team going
down to defeat, Captain Miles, of the
Navy, pleaded with the coaches to let
him get Into the fray. Miles Is suf
fering from an Injured knee, but finally
won consent. He relieved Cralsr at
quarter. There was u scrimmage.
Time wan tuken out. Just one play und
the Middles' leader was among tho
fallen. He was picked up In the arms
of a husky substitute ami carried fiom
the (leld.
Though facing certain defeat, the
Navy fought as hard In the last five
minutes of play Sua during the first.
The Middles never let up, but they hud
a better team on their hands.
On a dry field. It Is entirely noss ble
that the acoro ugalnst them would havo
been larger.

erett was expected to win by .u big

outplayed tn the lirst period.
(IT was a good, clean game. The play was excellent during tome phases, and of course I am
more than satisfied with the work of the Army team. At no time was there a- chance to
find fault anywhere.
"Great credit is due to the Navy team, and none knows better than I and the others of the
Army team just how well the Navy boys did play. It is a good, strong eleven and their play is
of the cleanest. They fought hard and they fought well."
ffnpHE Navy team was beaten fairly, although the game was not without the elements of ad-
vetrse luck for us. The Army team is a good one and deserves praise for the manner in
which they carried out several plays. They played cleanly."
