NEWHAVEN HAS BEGUN Students and Players Have Left > Princeton for Scene of . Eli Combat. PRINCETON, Nov. 17.—“On to New Haven” is the battle cry.,which began ,4 early today, and the exodus toward the metropolis of tlie Nutmeg State began at 1:07 o’clock,*.when the first of two special trains pulled out of Jungle* town. There is no over-confidence among the student bods', but the men are assured that they have a fighting team that will battle Iq the finish, and they are going down hook, line and sinker on the outcome. Cold, snappy weathc “ud a dry field enabled me Tigers to get in a good prac tise yesterday afternoon, the last scrim mage of the season on Osborne Field. For about fifteen minutes the two teams indulged In a regular game scrimmage, in which the varsity scored u touchdowa. -McLean, who was playing in Hart’p. po sition, teeovored a fumbled punt ami raced thirty yards for the score. There j wat little offense improveeut over the article of play exhibited by the Tigers in the early games, and this looks serious for the Orange and Black. Dewitt has been >omltig along nicely in his punting and will be relied upon a lot against the Bulldog. His drop kicking has Improved and this is the most the Tieers have to encourage them. Baker did some clever drop kicking from difficult angles from the thirty and forty-yard lines. The latter rlften minutes of practise < was devoted to drop kicking from all angles and opposed to a strong scrub eleven. Baker. Vaughn and Dewitt were in the bock field, with Pendleton at quarter. Duff mid Wilson were not used at all yesterday. Brown and McCormick were at their positions. White ami Dunlap were not allowed to get in the line-up. They are both lu good condition and up to top*notcli Ponq. so the coaches are , taking no chances. Wallqr and Ham % niond played a good game*at the wing pOftiUons. They are not the equal of White and Dunlap, but they play au ag gressive game. They are fast and mu under puuta like a flash. YALE TRIES TIGERS’ PLAY? NEW HAVEN. Conn., Nov. 17.—The hard work of the Yale team lor the Princeton game Saturday is over. The coaches of the eleven the last minute be fore practise yesterday changed their k minds about the necessity for another * scrimmage, so the varsity was not put to this trouble and the consequent danger of Injuries. The practise started in secret on (he varsity field. The regular varsity was used and the plays which will be used to break down the Princeton defense were gone through. This work continued for about an hour. Each play was taken up separately and gout* through several times with the coaches, especially Shevlin and Sanford point ing out where it could be bettered Then the plays which Princeton used in the Harvard-Princeton game and the * iTlnceton-Dartmouth game were shown and the way to meet these on the defense. The greater part uf the work was de fensive. CORNELL CHEERED ROUNDLY. ITHACA, N. Y., Nov. 17.—Cornell's team was giveu a rousing send off last eVeuing when it left Ithaca for Chicago to play the Maroons. A big parade of 2.0 SO students formed on the hill and, headed by the cadet band, marched down through ‘ the streets of Ithaca, singing football songs, dancing the snake dance and cheer ing loudly for every member of the team. Red fire lighted theb- path down to the station, where more rousing cheers were given until the train rolled (iff and then the crowd jellied 111 Hinging "The 13 u > Team." Twenty-four men are in the party besides the coaches. LET UP AT HARVARD. 6OSTON, Nov. 37.—There was a notice 4 able letup In the practise at the stadium yesterday afternoon. Coach Houghton or. dered lengthy workouts, but no risk of injury to any of the first string players wafti taken by sending them Into stiff scrimmage.

PRINCETON SHOULD BE FAVORITE IN BETTING OVER BULLDOG BUT IS NOT - A That Eli “Jinx” Makes Bettors Incline to New Havenites as Morrow’s Victors. BV FRED J. BENDEL. I Picking Ihe winner of a modern foot j ball game between two big colleges Is j a task that would make the oracles ; o,‘ ancient Greece, even with their eu | perlatlve imaginations and their mar* j velous intuit)venepg throw up their j arms in dismay were it imposed upon them. Results of the big battles this year have more than ever proven that there I is no such tiling as the "dope” panning out In selecting football winners, if ! you bank on the dope you get fooled. The only thing to do Is to grope and hope. Yale and Prlficeton line up for their annual conflict at New Haven tomor I row. For several reasons Princeton | should be the favorite In the betting i but she Is not. Princeton has beaten 1 Harvard and has not been bentiju i Is the only one of the Big Four th it (in boast an unsullied record -so fa., a.- ccfeiits are concerned. Yale was . u t once by West Point and Prince 1 to have the edge on her ason but yet Yule Is the i. :'.y. old plea of Yale luck tin. : ally seems to be some ex cuse Ci r theme who harbor opinions that Yule will win because she has a jinx on the Orange and Black, but j in football as in baBeball luck is al I ways with the winner. The team that j gets the breaks tomorrow should win I and from past performances that team should be Princeton, for the Tigers’ .uck seems to have undergone a com plete form of reversal for the better. Princeton showed that she could rise to the emergency when Harvard was beaten. The Orange and Black boys have shown wonderful ability to take advantage of the slightest lapse on the parL of their enemy. The Harvard game was a revelation to Princetontanr in the manner that the Princeton line men diagnosed with absolute precision the Harvard attack and the celerity with which they availed themselves of the knowledge. If Princeton can do the same against Yale tomorrow and a few more "Ifs” thrown in the Orange and Black may lie returned the winner tomorrow after noon at New Haven for the first tlnm since 1903. Yale in a way has an unusual team ihis year. There are no stars In her lineup such as the line-smashing Coy, ihe battering-ram Hogan or the irre i sistable Shevlin. She has, however, a | well balanced team that In a certain KLINE AND ABE ATTELL TO BOX THANKSGIVING Boys Will Meet at the National Sporting Club That Night. Patsy Kline will get another whack at his old enemy, A be Attell. The old rival* have been matched to meet at ths National Sporting Club, In Manhattan, on Thanksgiving night, November 20. The announcement that Kline and At tell will again match strength In the roped arena was made last night by Joe Humphries at the National Sport ing t'luii. Kline believes that he will surely beat Abe this time, and will about be ready to give up trying If he falls. Patsy dime nearer to turning the trick on their last meeting than ever before, and everything is in hta favor for this at tempt. the defense. There are some apt, pupils en the bulldog teuni who have drunk In with eager th ru eve ry bit of Wal ter Cat'.ej'c ext, rtsii1 knowledge of the sense struts t parlor to Princeton be cause it is tiici c. .illy balanced. Its effenue ha. oeen developed along with game ana there art many who think that without the same Camp Yale would not be the absolute tyrant that she is in the college football world. Princeton has a team that iH lightning itself. The Tigers have been taking things easy all season. They were sat isfied to beat their smaller rivals by small scores, saving their strength for the big battle with the bulldog. That Yale is worried goes without saying, for the new policy at Princeton has kept her guessing. Intelligence, football intuition and speed arc the main assets of the Princeton eleven. Preeminent in the Tigers’ work has been the ability to think quickly. It has been pointed out that Harvard’s centre in the Princeton game committed the glaring error fre quently of holding the ball on the ground when a kick or some unusual trick play was planned by Harvard, and that the manner in which he fin gered the ball frequently enabled the Prineetonians to guess what was com ing. Camp was there and he saw it all. Princeton will have no such advantage tomorrow, but her supporters think she will be just as successful in breaking up Yale's aggressive plays. There promises to be a kicking duel between Dewitt and Howe. Both are strong kickers, but If Princeton's speedy ends are at their best the Tigers should have a slight advantage here, for they will hold the Yale men down In their tracks. It has been argued that Princeton has not as dependable a team of substitutes nr Vale; if the backs start smash in line that Princeton’s lineman wi mussed and bruised up as well as flowed up and that their speed will be diminished. Princeton’s line, with Captain Hart as the main bulwark, has shown tn the past that it Is not merely defensive ;when protecting their goal. It is also an aggressive line. Every man Is aggressive tnd more than once a Harvard man was downed before he started with the ball when a Prince tunifan broke through the line and laid hint low. It promises to be a great baftie.

A NEW YORK. Nov. 17.—Football ln ■ terest will bo widely scattered tomor j row, the Yaie-Princeton game at New , Haven being the leading battle, but with numerous other Important con tests, such as Harvard-Dartmouth, Penn-Mtchigan, Cornell-Chicago, Am herst-Williams and Navy-Penn State. In Army-Navy circles the last named game will mean a good deal, for, aside from the Princeton encounter, the mid shipmen have met no teams so near their own calibre, unless Western Re serve, which unexpectedly held the Navy to a tie, can be so classed. Harvard and Dartmouth are both teams with something in the way of n , < learly-deflned, positive offense, a con dition not at all prevalent. That is tc say, both have been able to advnnct respectable distances against strong teams by a rushing offense, evei though this has been done streaily That much each man has actual!; shown to better effect than any othei team except Yale. 144444444444444444444444444 || MURPHY REFUSES TO I 14 LET OVERALL GO | | TO COAST LEAGUE. % ^4,^.^4.444444444444444444444 If Orvie Overall, former star pitcher : for the Cubs, who quit the game after I striking It rich in a California mining venture, plays baseball any more It will be either with Chicago or with an outlaw' club.

MARATHON RACE SET FOR TOMORROW MINORS WOULD FIX SALARY IN j ALL LEAGUES 'Lynch Favors Class AA for the Eastern, Pacific and As sociation. BAN ANTONIO, Tex., Nov. 17.— There will be many holdoutB all along the line next spring if the minor league magnates assembled here follow out as vigorously as they suggested yes terday a plan to cut down salaries and make salary limits that are far below the present standard. Big pen alties for violation of the rule have also been sugesled, but no action was taken. President Tom Lynen, of the Na tional League, favors a Class AA rat ing for the Eastern and Pacific Coast leagues and the American Association. He figures that a draft price of $4,500 would be cheaper for the major league ' clubs If the leagues in question agreed to a rule that no stars could be sold to the majors except for Immediate delivery. President Baum, of the Pacific Coast League, announced that he would offer a resolution to Con i gross asking that a law prohibiting the transmission of baseball bets by wire be enacted. CRESCENT NIGHT PRODUCES l.OOOTH HEADPIN BOWLER. Just 1,000 bowlers have shot this season In the STAR headpln tourna ment. It was "Crescent Night" last night on the Iroquois alleys, and the twelve teams that performed brought the total number of quintets that have lind a chance at the prize money In the big competition up to an even 200. | The bowlers from the Crescent Ath letic Club made an excellent impres | slon lust night. They were under the j management of Henry Basile. and I tried hard to win some of the watch | fobs offered by the STAR to those j who roll scores of 100 or better. No 1 body succeeded, however, though there i were not a few good scores. Charles Tate got the closest with a tally ol j 09. He hit the headpln In every frame I except the fourth. In the eleventh box j lie had 91 and needed nine pins for a : fob. A good hit only earned him j eight pins. Fleet, in the third squad, rolled 90, with two misses. Tate rolled j in the last squad, and with him was j W. Rais, who had the hard luck to j roll 98, with twelve straight hits. I Jansky, with two misses, had 93. The j team totaled 440. HESSIAN’S FORFEIT MONEY HAS NOT BEEN “COVERED.” \ _ 1 The challenge money put up with ! David B. Mulligan, manager of the Hotel Breslin, by the friends of J. IV. Hessian, champion rifle shot of the United States, for a combination matcli with rifle, revolver and shotgun, has not been covered. This is much to the disappointment of the gentlemen I who are ready to back the chances of Mr. Hessian In the difficult matcli. They had imped to create, through such a match, interest In similar matches, which would be made a part of the program of Importantx tourna ments. A combination mjitch such as this would not only add much Inter est to the tournament, but it would serve to encourage all-round profi ciency in all branches of fire-arms. DAM 3-MAN TOURNAMENT. .

C., known in the athletic world ns the "Murathon King," has entered "the 1. A. H. S. meet. ,to be held at the Velodrome tomorrow. His performance on Saturday, coupled with that ot Thanksgiving Day, in the Yonkers' marathon will probably determlni whether he is to represent America at Stockholm in the Olympic marathon in 1912. Another sterling murathon runner has been obtained by the T. A. B. S. In the person of Thomas Dwyer, of the Mohawk A. C. Jansen, Dwyer, Appleyard. Rozett and Smith, of Yonkers, are considered by expertH as the best amateur j around New York in long distance running. Aside from the Interest these men will naturally awaken there are local athletes who will dispute every inch of the fifteen miles with the premiers. Local interest will be on Brady, of the T. A. B. S.: Moore, of L. 1. A. C., who is a Newark boy; Guerin, of St. Columba's, and Sweeney, of Belleville. The T. A. B. S. look to Brady to l ring home the "bacon." at least as far as the locals arc concerned and It 1b said that the boys on the Hill have gathered a "roll" on their midget. Thompson, who looks after Moore, said last night that he was ready to cover everything in sight that Moore would romp home ahead of any other Newarker. Guerin and Sweeney aro being backed by the St. Colurnba con tingent and Belleville and It seems thqt something should develop from (his new event in athletics introduced by the T. A. B. S. In the sprints, the greatest battle for honors ever seen on a local track will he fought In the 70 and 100 yards, be tween Hal Helland. of this city, and Billy Keating, the indoor champion of 1907.

Young Wagner was clearly eliminated from the bantam-weight claim last night, when Frankie Burns, of Jersey City, beat him in every one of the ten rounds fought as the main bout at the National Sporting Club. New York. While It is true that the New York boy never was in danger of a knockout, lie was tired and bleeding at the end. Burns didn't put up his best fight and Ills admirers were somewhat disap pointed at his showing. For four - rounds lu- seemed unable to solve Wag ner’s defense, and it was a hugging and clinching match, with Wagner's face frequently contorted with pain when Burns whaled away at his mid-section. Alter the fourth round Burns took a big lead, but his punches lacked steam, tie led at long range and infighting, and at the end of each round Wagner wel comed the bell. After last night It was planned that Burns is the logical boy to meet John nie Coulon. It was agreed, however, that it will take more than ten rounds to decide It. Burns, while fast, clever and aggressive, seems to lack the punch that makes champions. Of course, he may develop It later. SALARY ALLOWED.
