plunging l!i»li'li.i<-k mill koiil kicker.
Just consider what auch praise means —-remembering Ileffel
flnger, Hlnckley, Toe, Treuchard, Heaton, Coy, Daly and other giants
ot the gridiron.
Fame Is a mirage, but somehow men of Homeric deeds, such
as make football immortals, never are forgotten, and Brickley'd
memory will be kept green when he has turned to dust.
It would be difficult to recall a more stupendous exhibition of
football than Brickley Rave in Saturday's Yale-Harvard game when
he kicked two goals from field and made one touchdown. But great
m was his record of Saturday, his performance in the Harvard-
Princeton game, when he kicked a goal from the 4 8-yard line, was
even more remarkable.
Old-timers who have seen every Mr game for the last 20 years
declare that lirickley's boot from the ts-yard line was the greatest
kick madt! since football became an intercollegiate sport.
This Briekley boy has bet-a
playing with footballs since ho
was 6 years old. and that was 15
years ago. Upon his sixth birth
day his father tossed him an
oral; Charlie was disappointed
boaau.se he wanted a vice red ex
press wagon.
"Kick that football; if you
kick It often enough and hard
enough, my son, maybe bo mo day
you 'i see your name in tIM
papers," said Hrlckley pere.

«- until 1912 finds him heralded as
the greatest drop-kicker that ever
lived. It was his toe that whirl
ed the ball over the bar for the
only score in the Harvard-Dart
mouth game. The same toe
booted Harvard to victory for the
flnrt time In a quarter of a con
turjr over Princeton, and in ev
ery Harvard game thiß fall
Brickley has kicked himself in
to the score.
He has kicked ten goal» and
made 12 touchdowns, a record
no other halfback has ever ap
In addition to being a great
athlete, Brickley is a splendid
' student. He whu second In his
class at Exeter and a Harvard
scholarship was his reward. He

university, doing odd jobs, and

After he graduates, it is prob

player. He is just as good on
the diamond as on the gridiron.

cause for the Tacoma boy's de

the fight.
In the ninth, when he was all
in, Bonds was permitted by hla
second to tear loose, and in this
round he knocked Farmer down
once and against the ropes sev
eral times. Bonds was trying
long uppercuts which would have
been the Kapowsin boy's undo
ing had they landed, but Farmer
had his guard right up under his
chin and held on until the gong
rang, with the logger's friends
calling for Emil Schoek to throw
up the sponge. The tenth round
was about even, both men being
pretty well played out.
