H Strength of Yale Team.
H The big question up for decision in
H the little New Jersey town this af-
Hl ternoon is tho strength of the Yale
H team. The virtues and faults of the
H Tigers are known. What they can
H and cannot do when pitted against
H opposition of their own class has
j been shown by their defeat at the
I hands of Harvard two weoks ago.
I Some of the failings will bo remedied
and the team generalh can be ex
pected to prove a more compact, a
more dependable thing because of !
i two weeks more of polishing. But I
In a general way it will be about the j
i same time, both in strength and
cakness, that fell before Harvard, f
Yale Untested.
Yale is practically untested. Last!

found a task of Jamming ten days'
work into five Upon what they have
accomplished since last Saturday de
pends Yale's chances to beat the
' Great Collection of Players.
The Yale team, in a summary
glance, can bo classed as probablv
'the greatest collection of football j
players among the big three. Yale '
as a team is a different proposition. I
Last Saturday it war. not a team that
1 beat Brown It was merely a bunch
of Individual stars with hardly anv1
co-operation or uniform method.
This, it seems to us, is due almost J
entirely to a superfluity of coaches,,
the men becoming confused by the
conflict of ideas jammed Into their
headB A poor grade of coaching,
well drummed into a team. Is better
in our opinion than twentv different
styles of best-grade coaching, con
fused and untaught to tho men.
If Yale has become adjusted Into
a team with teamwork, It looks from
here as if the Tigers are due for
l their doom. If Yale has not pio-'
grossed In tho Inst few days past
the Individual stage, it is goodbye j
Elis and possibly a neat little total j
run up by the Orange and Black, i
Yale teams have accomplished the
almost superhuman in single weeks of'
past years, notably Daly's team of I
two vears ago. ' '
El!s In for Spankiny. j
Have they repeated this year? We '
doubt It- In othor words we think
Yale is In for a spanking Harvard

when it lost to Princoton, looked much I

j whelming of Amherst and Cornell j
since then would indicate that the
Hanoverians mav have Improved, but)
it is almost loom uch to expect thorn
to beat the Crimson, which has de-!
feated their only conquerors. This J
game holds unusual appeal because I
! of the reappearance of the great goal-'

Indians do not meet Yale. Harvard
or Princeton Without such a game
to play, they cannot by any means
be rated the champions of the coun

humble mind, Carlisle is a touchdown

Harvard not excepted. However
there is no way to prove or disnrnvo!

at the start that he had lost nona of
those almost uncannv qualities of
speed, couiage and strength which I
have made him a veritable world
beater in every line of sport which
he has taken up. ,
It took "Lefty" Flynn to divert at- i

Football fame, alas, is a thing of

It was against Williams that Bricklev
really found himself He drop-kicked
over tho tandardr. as easllv from one
side of the 30-vard line as from the
other. Two touchdowns and two field
ffoals he registered in this game, in
creasing to four touchdowns and two
field goals against Amhorst on the

' words:
"Barnstorming inrter reasonable
