On a . orry. slippery gridiron. Tale's heavyweights scored a signal triumph over . the Princeton 'varsity football eleven here this afternoon In the presence of twenty - five thousand spectators. In al - - 'most every respect Yale was master of " ' the situation, although after rolling up twelve points in me nrsi nan. me uiuco . were unable to score during the sec - ' . ond period. Tale displayed not only power in defense and attack but the speed with which the New Haven men rushed their formations through to . success fairly swept the Tigers ontneir feet. .' It was all Yale in the first half. The Blues, using Bloomer, Hogan. Owsley and Leavenworth tore Princeton's de - . fense to ribbons. I great was the supremacy of the New Haven eleven that - hen the half was i ended it was fully predicted that the t" Jerspymen would be buried under1, a 'score 'of about thirty to nothing. But in i Jhe second half, in spite of the per - j sistent hammering by Yale, the Tigers v showed wonderful recuperative powers f and played some football that terrific - i ally delighted their army of followers, j It was the time honored line smash - ,y lug, through the centers and tackles, j - that enabled Bloomer to score the i first touchdown, while not long after - .; wards Kinney blocked a punt close to ! the Tiger's line and Leavenworth in the mad scramble for the oval, scored again. In both instances Hoyt kicked ,suDerb goals, as well as punting mag nificently throughout the struggle. In point of physical stamina Yale was far ahead of Princeton. The supposed crlplpes, Bloomer and Owsley, went into the game full of fight and it was not until the second half that Owsley's leg compelled him to give way to Fllnn, which was the only change in the original make up of the blue eleven. The Tigers, on the other hand, outweighed as they were, were , pretty well used up. Captain Foulke yhad to withdraw in the second half because of an injured rib, 'though he struggled with the coaches and physicians to be allowed to remain in the fray. Furthermore, Burke, the quarter back, was injured before the bat - V tie was under way ten minutes, but .his substitute, Tenley, played great football, and was a bright, particular . star in spite of the fact that in several ; Instances, when attempting to run back kicks he slipped in the mud.

The only obstacle between Leavenworth and the goal line was Ritter, who tackled and Leavenworth foil, landing the ball on Princeton's forty - yard line. This play made the Yale army wild.
