NEW HAVEN, Conn.. Nov. 16. Fighting to the last ounce of her weight, tlio Princeton Tigers were beaten by the Yale bulldog In th0 annual football game this afternoon by a score o 12 to 10. From what looked llko sure defoat In the first half, tho Yale players came forth In the second like a lot of wild men. They wanted to fight. They waded right In, caught thc Tigers. by the neck, belted them around the Held right anil left, walloped them over the chalked lines and -marched down the turf until they, lay n bnttored heaps boyon.l the Princeton goal posts. It was a wonderful game, full of rip iand zip, dash and ginger and never will tho 80,000 spectators forget tlio headlong plunges of Coy. tho rapid-fire gunning of Dillon, the tnckl'ng of Wlster and Jones and tho superb all-around work of Tlbbott and McCor-mlck. . Princeton played rings around Ya'.o during the first half. They were so fast and tricky that Yale could not keep up with them. In the second half conditions w:tc reversed. Yale's beef began to tell. - Tho bulldog, unlroolcgd n few tricks and had Princeton guess, ins until thc game ended In the Tigers' defeat Tile day was Ideal for football, beautiful, ami 'Just cool enough to flush tho cheeks and .make purple tho noses of portly old alumni. Just previous to tho game the betting was 2 to 1 on Yale. Princeton won the toss ana Capt. McCormlck' southerly sun. As the teams lined up for the kick-off, tho crowd grow comparatively quiet. With the 'ball In tho center -of the Held, Harlan took a short run and throw his whole soul into a kick sent tho ball spinning awny over the Yale men's heads There was a rapid scurrying and converging toward the point of huMle and then a Yal0 rock-t hit tho ground with two of thc Tigers atop and moro Yale men on tho second story. Back came the ball to mlilfi?lil, propelled by the elllclcnt toe of Coy, with the light skirmishers, after it. Here in in center or the grid? ron, tho carnng scrimmage hendguards nu n- rationings ana thrown Into 'tho air by tho force of tho shock. Princeton's defense did not seem to cohere properly at first and Blgelow's hull neck butted Into the center for iVnir chalk marks. That one smash :-comed to shako the Tigers together. While Ynle's supporters were yet bellowing jivouply, t.h0 ball went to l"r'nceton,- the lines swung together 1 nd then ramie big McCormlck with Hie ball clrwpsd to his breast and almost overy man on the Vale team .net him. Coy plunged at him, missed nnd came a croppor. Bomar almost had him. He snapped at the Prlnco-ton man's foot and McCormlck almojt foil. Bride and Coy wero the only .two men between him and tho Yale goal o.nd 'the uproar of the startled Tigm purred h:m on. Brid0 pitched for 11 (lying Tiger, threw him of and then before he could recover fill upon him like a wolf on a Jackrabblt and McCormlck .went down.' H0 In d covered 35 yards and the Princeton .vide blossomed into a Series of yollow flags and Mowers. The cheers has scarcely subsided when Yale met w:th her heaviest disaster Tod Jon.?, tin-quarterback s'gnallcd for an ouulJ'i qquaitei'back kick.

Frou-cton This cut is one of the greatest snap shots oi the year, show ing Mount Pleasant, the i'uinous Indian back, in the act of getting away one of his famous punts. Mount Pleasant is well remembered here for his work in the Vanderbilt gme last season, where he was one of the Eedskin stars. All the season he has been doing phenomenal work for the aborigines, both in kicking, forwardpassing and running with the ball. It was his forward pass that scored the opening touchdown against Minnesota Saturday, and it is this same man that Chicago fears most nest Saturday when Stagg's Maroons face the Indians. It is reliably stated that Mount Pleasant will attend Cornell next season, where he will be eligible for four years, Carlisle being rated as a prep school. , or One man heart of the TECH BEATEN DOWN MICHIGAN'S 1908 PLANS affairs beefy line, smashed them here and there, until the lighter Tigers begnn to got winded-.
