Vale, funned with it victory over Harvard, was of the opinion that Princeton, notwithstanding the pet names of ita team the Tigers," was "not in it" with the brawn and vim of the Yale men, but the result allowed that there was a little miat,aomewbere. The game was phenomenon la the intensi ty and brilliance of the straggle and when the score of 6 to 0 was announced Prince ton' thousands of sympatizers in the grounds split the heavens with there yells of victory. "Haltered" Little "Tmm Previous." Tbe yelling up to the beginning of the same had been done principally by tbe Yale partisans, and the result showed the wisdom of that homely adage "Don't holler till you're out of tbe woods." The day was an ideal one for football just cold enough to make exercise invigorating and a bright sun shining. Princeton won the tow and took the ball, starting with a flying wedge that carried the ball through Yale's center for SO yards. Then ensued a series of struggles and scrim mages that showed Yale that the Prince ton boys were out for victory or death. -, and the first half ended in Princeton kick ing a goal. Score, 6 to 0. , Second Halt Nets Xathing. The Second half of tbe game was as hotly contested as the first. Kepeatedly Yale tried to break through Princeton's center. but as often Princeton stood like a rock and no great progress was made. At one time King of Princeton got the ball and and had made 5 yeards when Butter worth tackled and downed him. A little later Butterworth again distinguished himself by punting tbe ball 40 yards, but Princeton stopped it there and forced it back IS yards. Three times during this halt Princeton got the ball to Vale's 5-yard line, but when time was called tbe ball was on Yale's 13-yard line and tbe half counted nothing.
