Nov. ?4— (AP)—Dick Kamiaier, Princeton's dazzling AU-Americarr back, sustained a mild concussion in the second period against Dartmouth today and was ordered by his physician to leave the game— the last of his collegiate career.

Kazmajer was able to walk to the dressing room, but players said he could remember nothing of the game. Rather than take any chances .he was benched. During the time he was in the game he carried the ball 12 times for 47 yards and' completed sis out of 12 passes for 73 yards. OCTOBER PRICES HIGHEST YET WASHINGTON.
