NEW HAVEN, Nov. 26,-r-Yule triumphed over Harvard here this afternoon by a score of 6 to 3. Tonight the entire town and gown is celebrating the first victory over the Crimson since 1909 and the first touchdown since 1907. The victory of the Eli was fairly won and clearly deserved. Yale sent on the field a team which was individually superior to the Harvard machine and by sheer power and ability- downed the Cambridge combination, emerging from the conflict with the honors of the annual struggle which Crimson cohorts had come to look upon as their personal heritage. . Possessed of a stronger line and a back field fully the equal of Har vard s, tne tin eleven took up the battle after the Crimson had eone into the lead with a field goal 1n the opening period. With a steady attack aided by the break of a re -covered lumoie, Vale forced Harvard across its own goal line for ,. a touchdown that proved to be the winning score of the contest. H Yale Always Holds Lead. Harvard put forth a desperate defense and battled viciously against every foot gained by the lue but was finally heaved across ,( its own line under the irresistible charges of the conquering Elis. Once in the lead, the- home team never gave its .opponents opportunity to strike again and held the three point margin throughout the game. The victory was won before the ilargest and most picturesque assemblage of gridiron enthusiasts ,that ever witnessed a football game. Close to 80.000 spectators a massed within the Yale bowl, filling every available' foot of space. When the timekeeper's whistle announced the completion of play and of Yale's victory, thousands of cheering and yelling Yale alumnt and students rushed out jipon the field, engulfing the fatigued Blue heroes as they sprinted for the side lines. For a moment there was a seething mass of young and old, M men and women, that completely ' hid the players. Then out of the maelstrom emerged the members of the winning team, borne upon the shoulders of tbeir classmates and the customary parade around tk the field began. Yale Hooters Celebrate. Led by the university band and , the captains of the crew, track, ana baseball teams, the joyous tide swept down the gridiron in the snake dance that has become a part of such celebrations. Huge balls of blue fire were attached to the two bars at the extreme ends of the field, while squads of untie graduates fired volley after volley of Roman candles across the bars as the band played and the blue. section or tne stands sang and cheered. . Across the bowl the Harvard body stood In silence after trie Crimson team had left the field until the parade reached their po- called for a lotfg yell for Yale and the volume of sound which aroBe carried praise for the Blue eleven and evoked an equally hearty re sponse from Yale as well as ap plause from the neutral spectators Tiny Gamer I'mlrr Handicap. The game was played under trying conditions. The day was com and cloudy and a gale that reached a veloilty of forty miles an hour t 1lew across the field.

Both the Harvard and Yale scores were made when the respective elevens occupied this point of vantage. Harvard opened life game by " winning the toss and Captain Dad-miin elected to defend the north goal. . Horween punted to Laroche who fumbled on Yale's j!6-yarii line. - Thacher pounced upon- the ball and the Harvard eleven begun to hammer at the Yalo forwards. Robinson was forced to try a field goal from the Eli 28-yard line. The ball carried fair between the posts and Harvard's only points of the contest were registered. ' IeBre's Fumble a Blessing:. Yale's chance Came in the second period when, after the teams had hanged goals. Horween's best kicking effort against the wind was a ( drive to mldfleld. Neville and Le-gore battered their way out through the Crimson forwards for (ten yards. On the next rush Le- J gore fumbled the ball as he was I tackled, the pigskin bounding to-I ward the Crimson goal, until Gates (caught it up. He ran to the 12-' yard murk before he was hauled l.clowm foot by foot.. Harvard was forced back, four downs barely gaining a the necessary ten yards.

' SB NORTH HIGH SCORES VICTORY OVER AMES Little ' Cyclones Routed After Desperate Fight in Grid iron Struggle. FUMBLE DECIDES BATTLE Brown, North End, Recovers Ball and Runs Half Length of . Field for Touchdown. AMES, la., Nov. 25 North Des Moines High with tbe aid of a benevolent Ames fumble in the first quarter, took a fall out of the Little Cyclones here today, winning by the narrow margin of 14 to 12. The locals' failure to twice kick goals after touchdowns gave victory to the Des Moines boys. The fumble which sent Bobby Thompson's proteges down to defeat was somewhat similar to the fumble which cost Ames its annual battle with Iowa a week ago. The ball had been in the Cyclones' possession in North Des Moines' territory: North obtained the ball and punted to the middle oT the field. Brown Outruns Tacklors. A Cyclone player fell on the ball but let it slip awaj from him and Joe Brown, the dusky North end. grubbed the pigskin and outran a half dozen tacklerg for the touchdown. Goal was kicked, giving the visitors a lead of seven points. The Ames team ouenea up the game with a vicious rush. North kicked off well down In Ames territory and the manner in which the Litrle Cyclones returned it down tho field was greatly encouraging to the Ames rooters. Hoon, Ames fullback and captain, and Ricketts, left halfback, tore tn North defense to pieces for long gains through the line and around the ends. - Hoon put the bladder on the North 2-yar-d line and Ricketts hammered a touchdown ovei the linee In one scrimmage. The kick for the one point missed fire. In the second quarter, the battle was more even, and ineither backfleld was successful In the offense. The game developed Into a puntlnt, duel, both teams' resorting to punrs to keep from being scored on. An Ames player made a spectacular run of forty yarda for what looked like a touchdown, but Referee Mayser decided otherwise. . North Works Forward Push. In the third quarter the forward pass was executed by North High with varsity class. Clark, the Des Moines uarterhck flipped two beautiful passes, the second ui which resulted directly in North's second touchdown. The first one. from Quarterback Clark to Left End Scarplno, gained about thirty yards, the ball being placed on Uhe Ames 35-yard line. North hit the line hard and got the ball down to Ames' 8-yard line, from which nolnt Clark flipped another pass into the waiting hands of Scarplno across the Ames goad, Goal was kicked. In the last quarter. Ames braced after a couple at its staTs had taken time oat, and played .the brand of football that featured the first period. Twice. Ames marched down the field almost to North's last trench, and finally put it over by smashing tbe North line. The liheup: AMKS 13." I NoTlTH-D. ML- 14 I.. Hoon TIE T!

Some 60000 citizens, not counting the governor of New York, cabinet officers,' generals, admirals and an array of lesser lights lit both branches of the government service, saw the combat. Only for the absence of President Wilson, the game would have provided all the spectacular incidents which K to make Army-Navy football battles historic. Winter winds swept through the great standB, packed with cheering partisans of the soldiers and sailors. The gay gowns of the feminine rooters were hidden under furs and heavy coats. But there was no lack of vivid color, heaa of chrysanthemums swayed as their wearers cheered and shouted and the pennants of both schools were waved proudly. Cadrts Celchrntfl Victory. When the cadets trooped out n the stands at the end of the game ail "rushed" the colors, they had eleven victories to their credit in the Navy's nine, and they celebrated this achievement in time honored, fashion.

MANY STARS IN STRUGGLE Otoupalik of Nebraska and Davis of Iowa Figure Prominently in Contest. BY ItKKOK STl ART, Jit. (Staff Ri-prenrntatlvr ) IOWA CITY, la., Nov. 25. Four backfleld men playing 'without a quarterback, all able to pass the ball and two of them able to carry It. brilliantly scored a 34 to 17 victory for Nebraska over Iowa today In the closing game of the seaBon for both schools. They won from a team that played a stout and persistent defensive game after the first quarter, which they captured with a touchdown and a dropklck, both by Davis, Iowa's star for the day. Nebraska owes Its victory to the skill of its backfleld In shooting (lie ball "for either short or long passes over the line, supplemented by a sticky fingered pair of ends who plucked the ball out of the air with remarkable accuracy. Caley and Otoupalik, left half and left fullback for the Huskers, were Cue only men who showed any ability to skirt the Hawkeye ends and the big fullback was practically the only man to gain over the Iowa line which, except for two short periods, held solidly. Iowa Attack Results In Score. Captain Laun for tbe Iowa team, started things off when he booted he ball, as only he can do it In this part of the country, outside on Nebraska's 7-yard line, obliging Nebraska to return a punt which Jenkins carried to the 3fi-yard lino, l.aun then shot a pass to Jenkins that was good for twenty-six yard3. Davis went, eight more and Duncan took the ball to the 1-foot line. Davis was sent over for the first touchdown. Davis added the free point and the stands went wild. Shortly afterward, after many fumbles and ome Jigging back and forth. Jenkins fell back to the 411-yard line and shot a beautiful drop kick over the bar for three more points. The first quarter ended with tbe ball In Nebraska's possession on the Iowa 4 0-yard line and the score, Iowa 10, Nebraska 0. Von Dm k urn Scores on Fumble. Iowa had done her scoring for the game when the period ended except for a touchdown by Von Lack ii m when he scooped up a fumble which Caley dropped attempting a forward pass and raced fifty yards for his team's final score. But Iowa was not through playing by any .means. The line was Just getting well into action. Laun was still in the game, sending his punts to the side lines far behind V-e Nebraska backs and the Iowa offense was demonstrating some of the best tackling the Huskers have encountered thin year. The line showed the Nebraska backs that overhead was the best route for them and Caley was quick to realize the fact. Huskers Smash the Line. - Nebraska's first score, early In the second quarter, however, was earned by a series of smashes that were tlreir best during the contest. Otoupalik, Caley and Cook skirted the ends for short gains, but were regular at It and carried the ball to the Iowa 4-yard line for a first down from which Otoupalik smashed It over. The kickout was good, but the attempt at goal failed. Davis . fumbled on the second play after the kickoff and Iowa did not again regain possession of the -ball. After a successful forward pass and dashes by Caley and Otoupalik, the latter slipped over tho top of the line for a second counter and thtB time Corey made a good kick. Score: Iowa 10, Nebraska 13. Laun Hurt, leaves (Jaine. Latin was sadly missed when he was taken out of the game as the result of a kirk over the ear and liannlck. who replaced Jenkins, was thrown for mostly losses before the visitors' .passing machine had scored again. It required a bunch of swift ones, two of them over the goal line, for tho red clad front line was too eager, and could not stay on ' side to take the ball to wnere Caley could flip over the .h, Iillfi t0 otoupalik for the third touchdown. Calev again caught, ,ne punt out and Corev added his point. Score: Iowa 10. Nebraska 20. The half ended while Corey'B kick was In the air.

In the first three periods, (he two teams seemed evenly matched. With the score a tie In the fourth period. Ohio cut loose and what re mained of the game was In the na ture of a slaughter. Harley Hero of Gunif. . "Chic" Harley, one of the biggVst sensations of western football this year, wag the hero of the game. He broke through Northwestern's entire team for a run of sixty-three yards and a touchdown, and succeeded In scoring all hut seven of Ohio State's points. Harley is 19 years old, the youngest member of his team. "Paddy" Driscoll, in whom Northwestern pinned herjiopes for victory, also played a wonderful game, making his team's only Ohio State did the first scoring In the first period, when Harley kicked a field goal from the 35-yard line. During the remainder of that and the next two periods, neither team seemed to be able to make much headway, both being forced to punt frequently. Ohio Offense Crushes Purple.

Ohio tightened up and before the end of the game had scored three touchdowns In rapid succession. Harley, aided by a wonderful line offensive, began Ohio's scoring. The Buckeyes continued their drive and a very few minutes later Harley again went over North-western's line for a touchdown. This time, however, he failed to kick goal. After Harlev's long run. the apparently dlsheartene-d Evanston team played a poor defensive game and in the last two minutes of play, Captain Sorensen, in his last college football game, went over Northwestern's line for a third touchdown. He then closed his football record by kicking a perfect coal. The game ended shortly after the last touchdown. Lineup and summary: 1 OHIO 'TATBn NWKSf Holn . . .

More than 10,000 football fans, said to be the largest crowd that ever witnessed a game between the two teams for the last twenty-two years, packed the Drake stadium yesterday expecting West to win by at least ten points. West High supporters were so confident of victory before the game that they were betting as high as fourteen points, but when the fourth quarter ended, though broken In spirit and pocket-book, many conceded that East was tho better team. As a result of yesterday's scoreless tie the city and state championship is again In a muddle. West .and East will have to share the city itle, with West, Bloux City, Mar- sliainovn Alortno. nntl other nnrloe feated teams dividing the honors In the state championship race. Algona may get a good claim to the title this coming Thursday when the boys from that town hook up with Fort Dodge on their home gridiron. East Deserves Victory. ' ' '" The West High team left the battle field yesterday broken in spirit.
