Charley Brewer went through left for three yards and the ball was on Yale's forty-yard line. Wrightmgton made five yards more around right end, the ma playing desperately. Charley Brewer was hurt in the scrimmage and there was a delay of three minutes.

Charley Brewer was put through for five yards and the ball was on Yale's thirtyyard line. An attempt was made to send Fairchild through Yale's center. but he was pushed back for three yards and the ball went to Yale on off-side play. Yale bucked Harvard's center, but made no gain. Then Thorne was tried for left end but failed to get in. On two downs Yale had only gained three yards; on the third flown no gain. But on the fourth down Harvard broke before Brewer's injury Tuetday, sufficient strenath to have defeated Yale." S. V. R. Crosby, one of Harvard's coach-era, says: "Today's game was the hottest ever played on Hampden Park. It was the fiercest struggie from start to finish ever saw, and any one's game until the last ten or fifteen minutes of play. Yale won the game in the first half on Mot Tates wretched umpiring and Stillman's lucky stop of Brewer's kick- In the second half the Blue was completely outplayed and three-fourths of the time Harvard kept the ball in Yale' territory. Much dissatisfaction was shown on all sides by Moffatt's and Boy land's work as referee and umpire. Both officials unquestionably favored the Bale, and throughout the two halves Moffatt's work was so partisan as to repeatedly call down the displeasure of not only Harvard men, but many outsiders besides, and it is safe to say that neither of these gentlemen will ever officiate again in the same capacity." Josh Etsrtwell Fxsuotes the Rough Ploy. Dr. Josh" Hartwell, Capt. Hickey's chief of the spectators who left the field felt that the crimson team was the stronger, and it must be paid, and justly, too, that Harvard outplayed Yale at almost every point, the latter's kick mg being the only exhibition. Harvard' offensive work was without a doubt far superior to Tale's and her interference was better. Yale, with the exception of a few push plays between guard and tackle, and tackle and end, could gain little or no ground against liarvard's litrong line, and if it had not been for repeated tea yards given her for off-side play her offense would have been extremely poor. Harvard at the outset was badly handicapped, A. Brewer being in poor condition and Emmons having to give place to Cabot. Cabot's Playing Full of Quality. This young freshman covered himself with glory and played well, if not better than any man on both teams.

Then it was tent back to Butterworth. who kicked to Harvard's 35-yard line, Yale breaking through and preventing Fairchild from bringing the bail back more than a few yards. Murphy was Kicked on the bead in the scrimmage, and the game had to be suspended, finally taking his place with the ball on Harvard's thirty-five-yard line. Whittemore was pushed through Yale's center for fifteen yards, and Hayes through the right for five yards more. Whittemore again went through the center for five yaras, takmg the ball to Yale's forty-yard line.

Then Hallowell was injured and Wheeler was substituted. Yale failed to gain on two downs. Then Thorne tried to kick for goal and failed, but the ball went behind the gee; line. From this point to the call of time both sides struggled furiously, but neither succeeded in making either a goal or a touchlown, and the score at the end of the first half-12 to 4 in Yale's favorremained the final score. The closing play was unique. The ball was on Yale's titteen-yard line and Whittemore tried to take it through Yale's right end. Thorne broke through. Fairchild ran back for a kick and Punted the bail lean between Yale's posts. but while it was in the air the referee's whistle sounded the time limit and the prettily-kicked goal was not allowed. There was a yell of satisfaction from the Harvard side as the. ball descended behind Yale's goal posts, out it quickiy changed to one of derision when the official scoring board announzed no Harvard protested, but the goal was not allowed and the finished score stood: Yale, 12; Harvard, 4.

Harlan, who used to wear Princeton's orange and black on the field. directed the news taking. During the first half the report was written on the blackboard by Messrs. Follansbee and Pillsbury snd T. B. Marston handled the cheat in the second half. On the whole the report was so unsatisfactory that some of the most important details were omitted and the man at the other end of the wire was frequently railed at by the audience. There was little betting done as the Yale men would not offer such odds as Harvard men wanted. The early report came that Yale had rushed the ball over Harvard's goal line. Then the Yale men had a period of wild delight Within the nest few minutes came the news that the crimson had made a series of fast plays and scored a touch down on Yale. We've got 'em tied," yelled an enthusiastic Harvard man. NVe'll beat 'em yet." And many like expressions came from the men with the crimson flowers, as they slapped one another on the back. But this merrymakmg was short lived, for while the uproar was at its loudest the man St the blackboard wrote down the fact that Harvard had failed to kick the goal and that the score was 6 to 4 in favor of Yale. The Yale adherents woke up to another bit of lively cheering toward the end of, the first half when the announcement came that Yale had scored another touchdown and clinched matters by kicking a goal. At the close of the half "Jim Harlan announced for the man at the other end of the wire that Yale was playing a strong game and neakmg no mistakes, while Harvard was playing a strong but reckless game and losing ground on Wm tiling and interference. The description of the second half stirred up a lot of excitement at first, and for a time caused the Yale people some uneasiness. One report after another came that their men were being hurt. The first one was laid up and carried off on a stretcher within the first five minutes' play, and another went out of the game in the same way five minutes later. Then came the report that Butterworth had been badly hurt and had lett the field. Yale men were much worried, but they cheered tip and were not afraid of the result when they learned a moment later that the long-kicking full tack had limped back to his work. But when Butterworth did go out soon after and Armstrong was disqualified for sluggLng the New Haven contingent began to say bad things about the umpire. Then came reports that men on sides were being hurt. "Why don't they call in the police?" "Make them put on the gloves," and other such nleasatitries were offered, and all the while the time was wearing on and Yale's victory was being more thoroughly clinched. The news came toward the end of the second half that Harvard had the bail well down on Yale's goal and the Cambridge Men took new courage. Then the man at the 'bhone sang out: Fairchild tries for goal from field and apparently makes Harvard men shouted and roared and yelled, but the noise didn't last long, for the announcer again sang out: The kicit was not allowed." A moment later the game was over. Yale had won, and the fellows with the blue violets asked one another to go out and take a drink.

The number of accidents was unusually large and more serious than in the average i)f past years. The chary has been made that both teatns were unnecessarily rough and even brutal in their A review of the contest, however, seems to show that a large majority of the accidents occurred from purely unintentional causes. Ti Fa that the players were not rough would not be a correct statement. The teams, when they stepped onto the field were both in the pink through Tale's center and got the ball before Yale could play it. Fairchild was sent around left end for ten yards. Then the center was tried for two more. With Hat yard Eoldmg the ball on Yale's thirty-yard line. C. Brewer made five yards around right, the work of Harvard being remarkable.

'Varsity men are shocked with the lion that Flint, the team's big center, will not line up with the Maroons Thursday. Flint, with his brother, Joe Fiint, will be in the East that day. Wyant, center of last year, will take Flint's place. k'lint assigns no reason for his action other than his desiri to see the Eastern game. During the earlier part of the season tos sustained several injuries and broke the cartilage of a rib, but is apparently healed of his bruises now and played his best game with Illinois Saturday. Wyant is considered a superior man to Flint, but inasmuch as he has been ia training but two weeks it is feared the result will be disastrous.

Notwithstandmg the increased aze of the grand etand every seat was taken, and there was a demand for many more than could be supplied. Not less than 25,000 people-were there. The crowd was admirably handled, however, and there was no con fusion, though at the close the jam was terrific. The gates had been widened so that the exit of so vast a crowd was as comfortable as is pos. sible. A hundred and twenty Boston police, supplemented by 100 specials, preserved excellent order on the grounds. The Princeton and Pennsylvania teams were out, many of them. including Cant. Trenehard of Princeton and Capt. Knipe of Pennsylvania, being in the field and taking in every play. Pennsylvania at in the Harvard side and cheered lustily for the crimson, while the Princeton's on the side were as in their support of the blue. tVilliams, Massachusetts Technology. Boston University, and Am horst' supported Dartmouth and Brown upheld Yale. The Harvard cheering was systematically carried on and was more of a success than Yale', though the latter got oil some songs with fervor. The old orange man clad in red, Harvard's mascot, attracted some attention. Yale's principal mascot was a game rooster clad in blue. There was comparatively little betting. There was plenty of Yale money, and last night odds of 2 to 1 and 2,14 to 1 on Yale went begging. This morning Harvard as stronger. and a good deal of money was wagered on even terms. The Harvard quarters were in the Savoy Hotel, and after the game the men were found disheartened, of Course. and especially so on account of the drop kick at the close of the game, which did not count. Dr. Brook expressed himself as satisfied with the work of the team, though he said with better luck they would have won. Wrightington's broken collar bone will prevent his playing Thanksgiving. C. Brewer's ankle is also in bad shape and may keep him from paying. The team left at 8 o'clock for Cambridge. The Yale team stopped at the Y. AI. C. A. training school and left at 9 o'clock, quiet but jubilant, for New Haven. The Yale coaches, Rhodes Ccirbin, TomkIns, and Hartwell, said that they believed that there was no intention on the part of either team to lay up men. Capt. Hinkey raid that he had seen none of this in Harvard's play. Butterworth's eyeball is seriously injured by a finger and a piece of gravel and he may not be able to play Thanksgiving. He wid have to keep out of all light for several days. The special trains ran every ten minutes to Boston and New York after the game and tonight the streets are quiet and almost deserted. The Pennsylvania and Princeton teams left and will be quiet till their games on Thanksgiving. The feeling is now that with Harvard and Yale disabled Princeton and Pennsylvania stand good chances of winning. 1 I 1 Evanston Collegians' Team Work Poorly, Yet Intliv Idastla Ptay Well.

Culver, Andrews, Jeter, and Perry playmg best. The team had never played together before and the lack of combined work, frequent misinterpretation of signals, and fumbling was too great a handicap. It looked for several minutes in the eecond half as if Northwestern would score. At one time the ball was within three yards of Chicago's goal and was lost on a fumble. A few minutes later it was within five yards of the goal, but was again lost on a fumble. It took fifteen minutes of play for Chicago to secure a touchdown. Capt. Allen's men carried the ball after the first kick-off to Northwestern's fifteen-yard line, where it was last on downs. Some fumbling caused the ball to change hands several times and North- westerns finally punted. Chicago got the ball at Northwestern's twenty-yard line and it took but a lew plays for Gale to get across with a touchdown. He failed for goal. Two more touchdowns were soured before the end of the half, the score standmg Chicago ltlt Northwestern O. After Northwestern had taken the ball ease to its opponent's goal in the second half on steady gaMs by Culver, Jeter, and Andrews, Culver was hurt and retired. His absence weakened Northwestern. Gale did IMMO et cellent punting, quickly carrying the bad towaid Northwestern's goat. and Nichols scored another touchdown. Nichols scored two more touchdowns and Allen one before the close of the half. The line-up; Chitsages Pox-Mons. 1i-ore h-teMerss 'fund Lett end linatiO Left Ruittoetter Left guard Kuck.

The score at the end of the first hail was 6 to 5 in favor of Lafayette. of condition and fall of snap and life to a degree that is not often seea in a Yale or Harvard Yale was playing to maintain the record she has already made upon the field was stimulated by toe desire to add another victory and break Yale's long series of suocesses. Under ouch circumstances it is not strange that twenty-two men pitted against each other, fighting as If for their Lives, should at times become rough and even almost desperate. And it was owing to this strong feeling that was spurrmg the men on that so many accidents occurred. So deeply have I been impressed by today's exhibition and so prejudiced do I feel in regard to Harvard's opponents that I consider it absolutely impossible for me to act as referee In the Princeton contest. I have therefore notified Capt. Hinkey to that effect." LOCAL YALE-HARVARD FEELING. lust as lima was called showed a cool head. To sum it all up, both Harvard's offensive and defensive work were superior to Yale's, but both Thorne and Butterworth far excelled Harvard in kicking, and if it had not been for both of these men the crimson would have won easily. Capt. Emmons' men played the better football of the two their style of gume was stt- parlor to Yale Is, and they showed In their work a more complete knowledge of the game. Ileffelfinger said at the close Of the game: "Ails should congratulate herself for winning front the strongest team Harvard ever seet to Springfield." Dr. Brooks Denounces Blakey. Dr. W. A. Brooks Jr. of Harvard says: "No more serious blow has ever been delivered against the American game of football than tne manner in which the Hervard-Yale game was played today. Yale won. in the first place, by the superiority of her kickers. and, secondly, because Harvard was seriou-ly weakened by the loss of valuable men. The first few minutes of play were marked by Yitie's showing a tendency toward tactics which should never be permitted. Ilkrvard, later on, was found to resorts to the same methods. Therefore, both teams must stand the diegrece which such an exhibition necessariiy brings. The play by which Capt. Illukcy broke IVrIghtington's coder bone should never have gone unpunished. Harvard throughout the game showed a spirit of 'Never say and had, my opinion, In her origmal ball struck the goal post. Tale kicked the ball back for twenty-five yards, but for an off-side play it was taken back ten yards and given to Harvard on Yale's eighteen-yard line. C. Brewer made three yards through the center and three more around right end. Wrightington gained two through left tackle and C. Btewer one yard through left tackle. on the next line-up Harvard got five yards for Yale' holding the line, but made no gain on the next play. The ball was then on Yale's twelve-yard line. Waters was shoved through Yale's right for two yards and close to Yale ten-yard line. Harvard's interference was surprising, the heavy men on Yale's center seeming not to count as against Harvard's lighter weights. C. Brewer's leg troubled him and it was with difficulty he was sent on the line again. Fairchlid attempted to punt. but was blocked and lost ten yards. At this point C. Brewer was ordered off the field by the physicians and Hayes replaced him. Hayes took the ball and went through Yale for five yards. Harvard tried the center. but without success. Then it was Passed to Fairchild and by a trick was sent around Yale's left for ten yards. The men lined up on Yale's five-yard line, Harvard holding the ball. The Crimson tried the center and failed. Wrightington made two yards through Yale's left. The ball was now three yards from Yale's goal and Hayes was sent through, making a touchdown. The kick for goal failed. The ball was out of bounds and Harvard had to punt In to the ten-yard line and fell to Yale on a down. The third lino around Harvard's right, but A. Brewer tackled him and he did not gain. On three downs Yale had gained but two yards. The ball was sent back to Butterworth, who punted it to Harvard's five-yard HO. Fairchild got it but was tackled. Butterworth tried to go through, but Whitmore tackled him and took the bail away. Fairchila tried to punt. but fluked, and it went to Yale on Harvard's live-yard line. Thorne tried for the center, but he was downed and made no gain. On the next line-up Yale failed to push the ball through Harvard's line. The Crimsons played like fiends, but on the next line-up the hall went over and Yale made her second touchdown and actual first on play, for the first was a fluke. Hickok kicked a pretty goal and the score stood: Yale, 10; Harvard, 4. There was another three-minute delay while McCrea had his foot attended to. Butterworth tried Harvard's right but failed to gain more than a yard. Waters proving an effective stop. Then Thorne was tried for the center but also failed to gain. On the next play Hayes broke through and stopped Adee on the third down. Butterworth then punted to Harvard's thirty-five yard line, Harvard getting the ball. Hales was sent through the center for Eve yards and Whittemore gained five more. Fairchild went through for two yards. Yale's center was getting hard usage from the lighter Harvard men and frequent stops haa to be made to allow the men to recover.
