Harvard Defeats Princeton for First Time in a Quarter Century
Commuters Square Themselves With Home Fans by Downing Invading Forces
Great Work of Brickley, the
Olympiad Star, Is Strongest
Factor in Crimson Victory
Wonderful Drop Kicking and Line Plunging
Of Youth, Aided by Team Work, Too
Much for the Brave Tigers
[Special Dispatch io The Call]
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.. Nov. 2—Harvard defeated Princeton for the first
time in 25 years, in a roaring battle of the gridiron, hy a score of 16 to 6, on
the stadium here today. Thereby hangs a tale of Charlie Brickley and his
marvelous kicking. This youth, who represented tlie United States at the
Olympic games as one of the best all round athletes of the country, dropped
two brilliant goals from the field, kicked another from placement while
standing a full 47 yards from the goal- 1
posts, and so scored nine points of i
the crimson's total. Not content with ;
this, he plunged and tore his way j
through the Princeton line for many
substantia] gains and was an im
portant factor in a touchdown scored
hy Hartwick in the last few minutes
of play. Brickley was the rock on I
which the Tigers split, and Brickley
was the very life of the Harvard at
tack and the soul, almost, of the de
fense. He dropped from sheer exhaust
ion and a blow on the head just before
the game ended and Lingard was sub
stituted, hut he suffered no ill effects,
on the word of those close to the team,
and barring accidents in practice will
be ready to work the same havoc
against Dartmouth two weeks from to
day and possibly against Vale In the
culminating game of the season.
The Tigers scored one touchdown In
the second period on two daring and
well executed forward passes for gains
of 25 and 30 yards respectively.
HARVARD CAUGHT ASLEEP
A sudden changing of the attack J
caught the Harvard players off their j
guard, and Waller, after being spilled |
in the second pass, scrambled to his ,
feet and staggered over the goal line
at the extreme corner of the field.
The punt out for a try at goal failed, .
and with these 6 points Princeton had;
to be content. At no other time were
the Tigers within striking distance of
the crimson goal line, and at no time
were they able to break down the Har
vard defense for one of those marches
down the field which had marked their
play a week ago.
The score tells the story. Harvard
had the better team, as the elevens
took the field today, and Harvard well
deserved the victory which avenged In
part the defeat of a year ago and the
many defeats of years.
TIGERS LEAD FIRST HALF
The Tigers had rather the better of j
the first half and left the field with j
the score 6 to 3 in their favor, but
they were completely outplayed in the
second half in all essential points, ac
tually losing more ground by straight
tushes than they made and playing in
a way that bordered on a panic.
De Witt's punting, usually so con
sistent, was ragged to the point of |
almost utter failure, and desperate
chances were taken with the forward
passes, deep in their own territory,
which indicated all too clearly the Im
potence of their attack against the
Harvard defense and their willingness
to stake all on the off chance.
It was a perfect day for football,
with the air cool, clear and bracing.
The field was a trifle slippery in places.
but on the whole was In good condition
after the storm of yesterday. The tem
porary seats at the open end of the
stadium were not filled, but otherwise
the rows upon rows which seemed to
pile skyward were crowded to the ca
pacity of fully 30,000 men and women
who showed their love for football ln
no uncertain way,
The game was full of tense moments
and so many exciting situations that
interest did not flag for a moment.
There was organization in the cheering
and some singing, while a brass band
blared forth from time to time, but this
was nothing to the spontaneous shout,
or. better yet, the spontaneous roar,
which went up from time to time as
one team or the other gained a mo
mentary advantage.
OTHER HARVARD STARS
''harles Brickley. as told, was the
oustanding star. He was like the Sam
White of a year ago. A word, however,
must be said for Hardwick, who did
his full share in Harvard's rushing at
tack, and of Bradlee, who took Captain
Wendell's place early in the game and
was a power In the secondary line of
defense. Pennick, the crimson left
guard, was almost a whole team in
himself, while Hitchcock impressed one
as a leading candidate for a place on
the All American team at tackle. •
Waller played a particularly vigor
ous game for Princeton, but none of
the others stood out individually, even
"Hoby" Baker and DeWitt failing to
shine.
Harvard's satisfaction in defeating
Princeton was clearly indicated by the
wild dance of joy as the game came
to an end. The undergraduates took
possession of the gridiron and danced
their way about and under the goal
post with a ruthless disregard for their
voices send their headgear. Hats were
tossed over the bar and trampled
under feet, and nobody cared. The
band then led the way to the training
house, where a final cheer was given
for the team in general and Brickley
in particular.
PLAY IX DETAIL
A few minutes before 2 o'clock the
officials introduced Captain Wendell of
Harvard to Captain Pendleton of
Princeton as if the two players were
total strangers.

ANN ARBOR. Mich., Nov. 2.—Secur
ing a touchdown and goal ln the last
few minutes of play, Michigan today
defeated the University of South Da
kota, 7 to 6, in a thrilling game, the
first contest ln which the two univer
sities have ever participated.
A bad punt by Sheeks after he had
scored a touchdown for South Dakota
in the second period lost the husky
visitors the opportunity to hold the
Wolverines to a tie. Held scoreless in
the first quarter, both elevens played
desperate football ln the next period, j
and finally, after an exchange of
punts, South Dakota secured the ball
on Michigan's 40 yard line.' N Two for
ward passes netted South Dakota over
half the distance and Sheeks tore
through for a touchdown.
Before Potts could recover Sheeks'
erratic punt Michigan players had him
blocked.
Back and forth waged the tide of
battle until late ln the final period,
when Michigan worked the ball well
Into Dakota territory, only to have a
forward pass intercepted. Ferguson
punted out of bounds on Dakota's 15
yard line and Michigan secured the
ball. Using Thomson as the vortex of
a terrific line attack, the maize and
blue warriors battered their way to
Dakota's seven yard line, where Thom
son smashed through Downlgh for the
tying score. Then Patterson kicked
goal.
Wisconsin Batters the Chicago
Eleven
MADISON. Wis., Nov. 2.—The Uni
versity of Chicago football team was
eliminated from consideration in the
western collegiate conference cham
pionship race by the University of
Wisconsin's speedy and powerful
eleven today, the score being Wiscon
sin 30, Chicago 12.
' The game was one of the most spec
tacular ever played here, abounding
In forward passes, speedy end runs,
shifts, tackles, back and other Intri
cate formations. At such tactics Chi
cago had a decided advantage, but this
was more than overcome by the power
ful drive of the Wisconsin backs In
crossbacks and by Gillette's ability to
turn the maroon ends beyond efficient
interference.
It was its inability to gain by
straight football that cost Chicago the
heaviest. Three times the visitors
were stopped inside Wisconsin's five
yard line, and on four other occasions
they lost the ball on downs when an
other foot would have made the fourth
down for them. Wisconsin's line out
charged its heavier opponents. Butler
was especially effective at right tackle.
A great crowd saw the contest and
cheered mightily. Whenever the home
goal was threatened the Wisconsin
routers rose and sang their "Toast to
Alma Mater," and except for one oc
casion the team instantly responded.
Mitze will have entire charge of the club next sea
son. It will be up to him to select the training
grounds, sign and release players and attend to the
other details which go with running a big baseball
outfit. Mitze will leave for his home in Marrisa, 111., to
morrow to spend the winter.
suited In the visitors' first touchdown.
The game was rough in a degree and
! the penalties were numerous. The most
severe occurred when • Norgren, Chi
cago's punter, was sent from the field
for rough work, and his team penalized*
half the distance to its goal. Wiscon
sin scored easily after that happening.
Scanlon, who wore himself out stop
ping charges at the line; Gillette and
Tormey, who dodged and twisted for
long gains, and Pierce and Dcs Jardins
were the stars of the day.
Purdue Puts One Over on North
brilliant game of straight football,
Purdue university triumphed. over
Northwestern today, 21 to 6.
Purdue's scores were the result of
three touchdowns. O'Brien, Purdue's
fullback, went over for the first in the
opening period after Ollphant had ad
vanced the ball to Northwestern's lo
yard line. Purdue's second touchdown
was made In the third period, when
Phelps ran 60 yards against a broken
field and planted the ball between
Northwestern's goal posts. Ollphant
kicked the three goals.
Spectacular plays hy Hightower,
Lamke and Gruhn enabled Northwest
ern to sco#e four minutes after the be
ginning of* the game. Hightower
gained 40 yards on an end run.
Minnesota Blanks the Illinois
football team today fought Its way
another step toward the "Big Nine"
conference championship, defeating the
Illinois by a score of 13 to Q. Touch
downs by McAlmon In the first and
second quarter, respectively,* ana
"Pinkie" Hayward's one kicked goal
ln the second quarter tells the story
of Minnesota's victory.
Illinois came back strong in the sec
ond half and Minnesota practically
played on the defensive, while both
teams were forced to kick frequently.
Illinois and Minnesota in the second
half tried the forward pass frequently,
the former making good gains. A
number of times passes on both sides
were intercepted, Hayward and
Shaughnessy making sensational runs
on such plays. Shaughnessy, who took
the place of Tollefson, disqualified for
the remainder of the season because of
scholastic deficiency, did good work
as a kicker, but was not the equal of
Sllkman or Woolston.
Only once was Minnesota's goal
really in danger, when, in the fourth
quarter, line smashes by Wooleston and
one yard line. Minnesota held, how
ever, and Shaughnessy kicked to safety.
Haskell Indians Hang One on'
final whistle, the Haskell Indian eleven
defeated the University of Denver here
today by the score of 12 to 10. The In
dians made their first touchdown after
Denver's center made a bad pass for a
punt, an Indian falling on the ball on
Denver's three yard line.
Their second touchdown came after
two forward passes, netting 20 yards
each, and a third, which bounced out
of Artichoke's hands but landed in
Rocque's, had been executed with be
wildering quickness. They missed both

versity of Wyoming football team went
down to defeat before the Agricultural I
College of Utah here today by a score
of 53 to 0. The Utah men played
straight football, and made big gains
through Wyoming's line on almost
every play. Eight touchdowns were
made by Utah by straight line buck
ing. The Wyoming men apparently
were in poor condition, and played a
rather bad game.

The Oakland champions squared themselves with the fans of their own home

and slow, meek
and untutored, and
nobody thought
that he would do
yesterday. About half a handful of
them huddled together in two sections
of the bleachers and a dozen or so
decorated the grandstand. Therefore
the proud champions and the All Stars
are to be considered fortunate if they
took in enough to pay for the base
balls and their own individual car fares.
Anyhow, it was a fair enough game
to look upon. Although largely me
chanical, there were plays which
featured and made the fans applaud.
Whether they clapped and hurrahed
over the players' efforts or to Instill a
little warmth into their systems, has
not yet been explained, but they did
make some real noise, though, like the
game, it was also mechanical.
The old time Oakland favorite, Dr.
William B. Moskiman. did the heaving
for the All Stars, and he heaved a
game good enough to win with under
ordinary conditions. But the work ol
little Olmstead, who was used as a
wall flower by the Commuters in the
recent championship race, excelled that
of the veteran. He worked like a
champion in every inning of the game.
OAKS TIE IP SCORE
It was bing bang, one, two, three,
and you're out for the first five innings,
Both pitchers worked fast, and so did
the fielders and the batters. After
gazing upon that crowd, the players
figured the best thing they could do
would be to get it over with just aa
soon as possible. Therefore there was
no preliminary stalling around, such as
waiting for bases on halls.
The tweak came In the sixth spasm,
and the All Stars were the hoys to pull
it. Little Eddie Halllnan beat out one
of those slow ones down the third base
line. Burns came next with a sacrifice,
and Moskiman died on a grounder tc
Tiedemann. Fitzgerald started a fast
one, which got past Olmstead and
then got past Cook, and Halllnan reg
istered the lonesome All Star tally.

The Oaks were quick to come hack

Soccer Game With Thistles This
Afternoon Will Make 'Em
Put Up Their Best
The undefeated soccer team will be
called upon to face a stiff proposition
this afternoon, when the Thistles will
line up against the club boys. The
Scots have been showing greatly im
proved form of late, and as the lads
have been given a special "prep" for
this contest, the Pastimes will have to
be at their best if they expect to main
tain their unbeaten record. These clubs
will clash at the St. Ignatius grounds,
and. if they play ftielr usual game, one
of the fastest soccer combats of the
season should result.
The Pastimes and Thistles played
against the "baby" clubs of the league
last Sunday, and both scored over
whelming victories. The Rangers fell
before the Pastimes by a acore of 7 to 0,
and the Thistles put a 5 to I win over
on the Alamedas. The Pastimes fitrure
to win today's game on their record,
but the clever showing of the Thistles
last week may be an indication of the
form they will show in the future.
At Freeman's park the Vampires will
play, and this should be a warm battle,
as the teams appear to be evenly
matched. The Vamps played a nice
game last Sunday, earning a draw with
the San Franclscos, while the Barbs
enjoyed a vacation. The Vamps ap
peared a beaten team against the locals ]
up to the last few seconds of the game', !
the tying goal being tacked on just as
the final whistle sounded. Lindsay, the
crack forward of the San Franclscos.
Is expected to don a Vampire uniform
this afternoon.
The Rangers of Alameda will act as
hosts to the Burns team at Lincoln
park, Alameda, and the Encinal City
youngsters will have to gain a little
more experience before they can hope
to cope with an experienced outfit like
the Caledonian organization. The San
Franciscos and Alamedans will line up
at the Ocean Shore grounds, and the
locals should gain another brace of
points.
P The teams will line up as follows:
Pastimes —Crowley, Simpson, Dewhurst, Airey, ]

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
NEW YORK. Nov. 2.—lf present
plans m'ateriallze, Charley Frank may
add another pitcher to his staff to start
off the 1913 season. The pitcher whom
rumor says is a possibility is Hender
son of the Portland club of the Pa
cific Coast league.
WILLIAM J. SLATTERY
center and the Oakland catcher was In.
The seventh was just as lucky for
the Oaks as It had been all season.
Bert Coy picked out one to his liking,
and away it soared over the right field
fence for the final tally of thf» after
noon, so the few Oakland fans were
satisfied.
Barring Maggart. who dropped that
costly fly, and Cook, who muffed a
thrown ball right In his mitts, the
teams played errorless ball. They were
going the whole route all the time and
pulling plenty of the fast stuff, all of
which goes to show that ball players
in the Coast league can tear off a
game ln jig time If they only put their
minds to the task.
The teams will meet twice today.
The first game Is scheduled on thp Oak
land diamond at 10 oVlook this morn
ing. Abies will pitch against the
team which he pitched into the pen
nant, and Killllay will do the work for
Oakland. At Recreation park ln the
afternoon Pernoll will oppose Harry
Krause, and the proceeds will go to the
St. Vincent's orphan asylum of San
Rafael. Score:
