The fri Ehmen refused to wear pkull caps', which distinguished them j from the upper classmen, and the Sophomores were read;.- to enforce the ?'rule, but the matter was settled by a compromise and rooting rallies have been held as If nothing had happened.

Culminating a season flint, for excitement, lias seldom been equaled, the two big trump cards o? the yenr Will be played to-day, when Vale and Harvard clash on Soldiers' Field at Cambridge, und the Army charges the Navy on Franklin Field, Philadelphia. A safo prediction Is that upwards of 50,000 persons will pay homage tu the spirit of Amorlcun rivalry at those iwo games alone, Altogothci there, are hull' a hundred football biit llcs scheduled in different parts of the country, ami the vast throne that will witness tin- entire array will number well into the millions. Distinct contrasts arc presented in the big star attractions. In the one cusc. Yale and Harvard will go to war with an oven slate, so far as last year's contest?a 0 to 0 tie?la con eerned. on the other hand, the Army Navy same presents a light for re vengc by the cadets, the Navy gout having gored the Army bulldog l.y u to (J during the last onslaught. One fact that is noted with pleas? ure by devotees of the grent gridiron game Is thut in neither one of the bin games will there be a regular porfortner kept from the line-up be? cause of injuries or any other rea? son. Tlie teams will enter the frays with their best men all in their allot ted positions, and the losers can havu no excuses to offer. Barring the In? jection of that sinister element, luck, the best teams will win, and the- sea? son of It'll will come to a close with glorious eclat. With a dry held to play on, Vale may possess a slight edge over Har? vard. The JJlue has a Woll-orgunlzcd attack, built around innchlno-Uke teamwork, while the Harvard offcnslvu strength lies in one man, Percy Wen? dell, and the ability 01' the Crimson linemen to open up holes for him. Wendell has shown himself lo be an unusual "mudlark." He kueps Ida footing In tin- mire bettor probably than any other man playing this year. A dry lleld will help Yale in the kicking department. In this Yale seems to have far the best of It. Camp and Howe arc both reliable punters, and while Fclton, of Harvard, la good, it doe-s not appear that he can stack up with tin: two 13H8. On drop and plucu-klcking, 11 is all Yale. Howo ilgures to be dangerous whenever the Itluo gets u itutii Harvard's iblrty-llve yard line. A great battle will be put up by the end.-. It is conceded that Sit 111 White, of Princeton, bus 0110 All-Amorlcan wins position cinched, if uny one man in to-day's game shows head and shoulders above the other three "ho will without doubt got the other Hank assignment.

Tho Wis ' Const n team will centre its efforts on guarding against the toe of Scruby, tho Maroon's wonderful kicker. Michigan has Its lH'st hattlo of the season with ;i big Western team, lin? ing up against Nebraska at Lincoln. This game will servo as the only truo lino of comparison between Michigan anil tho Conference elevens. Illinois has always given Minnesota a hard buttle, and while they seem to hi meeting their superiors this time, u fierce tussle Is expected. Washington University, which meets Arkansas; at St. Louis, has one of the greatest teams in the history of tho little Institution, and the rusult of their game with the Knzorbacks looms up as important because of tho fact that the only good line on tho cham? pionship of tho South and Southwest can be got by comparison of scores made against Washington.

Savage's "'Girl of Golden West" Is Powerful and Dramatic Play. [Sfioclal to Tho Times-Dispatch.] Washington, jj c\, .November 24.? Nothing that has bee:i printed In tho Richmond papers concerning Henry W. Savage's "Ulrl of the Golden West" ha3 been exaggerated. To-night's perform? ance at th" Belaseo Theatre In Wash? ington proved conclusively that one of the most powerful and dramatic plays of the lait few decades could be .-et to music by an Italian master and still remain a gripping and earth-roll ing drum*. it i.< Indeed wonderful that Puccini, the man who composed the marvelous melodies and wrote the amazing orchestration of "Madam But? terfly" and of "La Boheme," could take, as he has done, the virile, almost crude, certainly realistic material supplied by Belasco's famous picture of the West of the golden days, and set i! to such speaking, breathing, living vividness of musical coloring. Prom the first curtain, disclosing the crowded saloon, through tho terrific scone In the second act, when tile blood drops upon ti;e outstretched hand of the sheriff, down to the tlnril phrase, sung by the girl and Johnson. a? they walk off the stage, tho music Is de? scriptive to t'.io last degree. So far as tho performance itself is concerned, ihere la nothing to criticise. A brilliant house, crowded to the doors, brought the principals out time and again. Thu chorus-, all men. sang as one would imagine some well-trained soloists would sing If they all endeav? ored to form a complete and harmoni? ous whole, und the orchestra of fifty, under the magnetic direction of George Polacco, was In itse'.f a thing of pure delight.

SOON WILL NAME SURGEON-GENERAL President Considering Selection of Successor to Dr. Wyman. . j Washington. November 24,?Interest Is being manifested in the Selection of a successor to lJr. Walter Wyman as surgeon-general of tho Public Health ond Marine Hospital Service, no official action has yet been taken look? ing to tilling the vacancy, but It la understood that it wan informally dis? cussed at the Cabinet meeting to-day, there Is a fair possibility lha,t th-j service ultimately will be developed Into u separate department, with a. head who Ik a member of the Cabi? net, the appointment of Ii new sur gcon-gt'lieral is looked upon us more Important than would be the case wer? the position to continue Indefinitely un a bureau undor the Treasury Depart? ment. 'Ihrer Men OlHcussed. Three men arc being seriously dis? cussed ua possibilities by tho ofllcers Of the service. They are .Surgeon Jo? seph White. Surgeon John V. Ander? son and Surgeon Itupcrt Blu?. There Is it possibility that OUC of these will be selected. All have scientific records. Surgeon White was In charge of the yellow fever work in New Orleans In IS06. Surgeon Anderson Is now the director of the hygienic laboratory in Wash? ington, ami .Surgeon Blue is In charge Of the bubonic plague work In San T-'runclsco. He Is u brother of Victor Blue Of the navy, who won fame by his roconnalssance In Cuba during th Spanish War. All three of these o/liccrs arc hlgh cla8s research men, and all of them have had experience In executive- work. Dr. Anderson, as head of the hygienic laboratory, more, possibly, than tho two others. Officers of the service In discussing the matter said that tho only objection to selecting any of tho Hire* for the place would be the In advisability of putting a high-class re search man in an administrative posi? tion. Ilr. Wiley Proposed. There has been a good deal of In? formal talk of appointing Or. II. W. Wlleyi of the Department of Agricul? ture, to the place, but this would be Impossible, as the surgeon-general, un? der the law, hut: to >.??? an officer of th< servlec. As the law stands, the ap? pointments t" the service urc made after a medical examination before :i board of officers, much as In tho case of medical oiMc-rs in the navy. The appointment is made by the President and confirmed by the Sonate afler the applicant has passed bis ex? amination. II" serve;! then for a series of years a.-- assistant surgeon, passed assistant surgeon and finally an sur? geon. From this grade the surgeon general is selectod. The talk of l?r. Wiley for the po? sition probably originated |u the sug? gestion made some time ago for the transfer of the pure food work from tie- Department of Agriculture lo tho Murine Hospital Service, it is known that ib.- Secretary of Agriculture fa? vors ill!.-; transfer and that he bus recommended it in his forthcoming re? port i,, the President. Dr. Wiley Is now out of town. It Is known, how? ever, that iie would consider the posi? tion with the fairly Immediate pro^ pecl of a Cabinet position ntfnehed to H. hut l><- w. old noi relish simply having his bureau transferred lo the M ? din. 11 o> pitu I Service.
