night the signal of an other magnificent lctory of her team over her rival Harvard the final score being 6 to 0 The Crimson went down to defeat in a desperate battle which In football strategy and spectacular plays haa had few equals since the two universities have met To Yale passed the almost undisputed tltleof the college championship of the country clouded only by the drawn no 6core contest at Princeton a week ago A - victory for the Crimson would have meant first honora for she had beaten the Carlisle Indians who last week won from Minnesota and who also defeated the University of Pennsylvania the conquerors of the University of Michigan For this reason if for no other the game on Yale field was of unprecedented lm portance and to Yale once more has come a victory which will live forever In her athletic history It was a victory won throujfh greater football knowledge superior team play almost unerring accuracy in developing the possibilities of the new rules and the magnificent work of individual players Score Same as Last Year The score of a single touchdown and goal repeats that of last year on Soldiers Field and it adds to Yales string of rio - tories only twice broken since 1897 Harvard proved a foeman worthy of Yale Her men repeatedly shone conspicuous and the flashes of brilliancy in Individual plays as time and again her backs broke through the line of blue or her stalwart guard Burr sent the ball twisting through the air for long gains seemed to be entitled to a reward Harvard was a trifle slow In executing her plays which as last year seemed to hinge on her great strength of defense while Yale was quick on everything Her men were extremely active Yale s success lay in playing offensively at every opportunity driving her plays hard and taking advantage of every opening when her opponents had the balk Not once did a Yale man have to run down the field without assistance As tne game was nearing Its close Yale played faster and rolled the Crimson line Into a heap time and again It was only Harvard s stubborn contest of every inch of her own ground that - kept the score at the singly figures Yales Sensational Play The touchdown was brought about by a sensational play Yale had tne tall on Harvard s 25 - yard line Jones called his signals for a kicking formation Vee - der dropped to the 34 - yard line with his hands outspread A perfect pass from Hockenberger sent the ball into his hands and Veeder like a flash started at right angles and hurled the ball over Vh heads of Harvard men for a 30 - yard pass vnere several Yale men as tnough drawn by a magnet had tamped Into one little knot Up from their midst leaped Forbes who caught the ball and In an Instant placed it down on the 4 - yard line Then rose the Yale hosts with cries for a toucadown while the Crimson side was hushed Roome who had replaced Knox was sent to smash the Crimspn line His first try gave 2 yards and the next time he was shot over with the whole team dragging and pushing him That four yards showed what Yale could do when she was hungry for the score which was so close at hand The kicking of a goal was an easy thing for Veeder Anxious Moments for Blue There were several anxious moment for the Yale men for while Harvard never had possession of the ball inside of the 25 - yard line twice Yale was lined up with the ball In the shadow of her goal posts and In each case to remove the danger and to get distance Veeder dropped behind the goal line and punted In both these instances Harvard by means of the onslde kick sent the ball to Yale at about Yales 20 - yard line The first time Yale was penalized for holding and it was her ball on the 3 - yard line A few minutes later another penalty Inflicted for the same offense gave her the ball on her 4 - yard line Each time a kick was resorted to after the Crimson line held fltm In the early part of the game Newhall tried a drop kick but it was blocked and T Ih Kll compelled to change her style ot attack and Burr was called upon to pnt the ball cut of danger with his toe Second Half The first part of the second half resolved Itself Into a punting duel between Burr and Veeder From then on the outcome seemed certain Yale with new piayers put fresh life into her team and in the last five minutes of the half there was a march down the field This began with Fosters fumble which Fdrbes took advantage of From then on It was i case of smashing into the Harvard line until Park replaced by Fraser showed that Tale had found the weak place Rush after rush swept the Harvard team back foot by foot until the ball rested on her 15 - yard line Yale was moving like a battering ram and another touchdown apparently was prevented by the referee s whistle ending the game Great Crowd Present The game was attended by all the Interesting Incidents which have become a part of It The gridiron was framed with a mass of humanity of which three sides were blue and the other crimson The cheering and singing while good fell far short of that in previous years explainable by the fact that the game was played so fast that spectators did not have time to pay much attention to the cheer leaders Not a seat was vacant and at the gate a few stray tickets brought phe - ndmenal prices one pair changing hands at 350 The game opened under gray skies and was concluded In radiant sunshine and under a canopy of blue The Harvard stands at the opening cheered Yale and Capt Morse and the opposite side returned In full measure this compliment At the close of the game the remarkable scene was witnessed of the jubi lant Yale host standing bareheaded for fifteen minutes in front of the Harvard stand alternately cheering and singing to the crimson and the latter In turn responding in a tike manner Yale has always cheered Harvard but never be fore has she turrVed It Into an ovation an Incident which will temper the harsh feeling which seemed to have been aroused Ey reports of acrimony in the selection of the game officials Flay Given in Detail The Yale team forced Its way through the crowd to the northeast entrance and came on the field at 155 The team Immediately went out for signal practice during which Veeder and Roome did some punting The reception of the team was a magnificent one as the stands were crowded It looked then as if nearly everybody would be settled in their seats within Ave minutes The Harvard team headed by Capt Foster crossed the field at exactly oclock and the entire side of the stands rose as one man and from a mighty cheer broke into a song In the signal practice of Yale H Jones replaced Alcott which seemed to Indicate a change In the last minute The Harvard team took only a minutes practice but Burr practiced field punts Capt Morse crossed the field with Mr Edwards and shook hands with Capt Foster The coin was ImmedAtely tossed Capt Morse won the toss and chose the north goal giving him a sight advantage of the breeze The whistle was blown at 2 -
