rom which point It wns rushed over for a

a forward pass hero It waa only second down,
Dartmouth hadn't scored, nnd the hall was on

not to try It In your nnri territory, unless the
team Is soifar ahead that Ins Interception will
do no haim, or your own team la so far be
hind that resort to desperate measures Is
In this rase, neither side had scored, and
rennaltanla had demonstrated Its ability to
hold Dartmouth's attack. This play was the
turnlnr point In tho whole game. And even if
a forward pass bad been Justified, the ball
should neer hae been hurled across the
field at such an angle, lor Curtis took It on
tho dead run, and the Pcnnsjlvanla defense
hadn't time to meet him,
I'ensylvanla was guilty of another lapse
when Dartmouth scored Its second touchdown.
From mldflcld, at which point Tucker had
kicked out of bounds, Curtis rushed the ball
br.ck 23 Jards in two plajs. Murdoch- then
mado four. Then Qhee fumbled, but Whitney
recovered the ball for Dartmouth. The next
nnd the scoring play was a long forward
pass to Wlnshlp, which tho Dartmouth men
caught over tho line. Wrny was right with
the Dartmouth man as ho prepared to make
the catch, nnd could have batted the ball down
more easily than Wlnshlp could have caught
It, but for somo reason he merely looked on,
and the mischief had been dono.
ATTACK WAS WEAK.
rennslvanla's attack was of tho feeblest
nature Sometimes a team doesn't score bo
cause the other eldo scores nwt and keeps
tho ball all the time. Dartmouth luid tho ball
a good part of the afternoon on this occasion,
but If tho Quakers had had any rushing or
running strength they had nmplo opportunity
to demonstrate It. During the game the
Quakers were In possession of the ball is
times, though once they lost it on the first
play through a fumble Only once wore ita
able to rush It for a first down, and but three
times did short forward passes ghe them , a
first do.wn. Only once In the whole game did
thoy net the ball beyond mldnold That was

Dartmouth. But hero they lost It on an un
successful forward pass. -i...'.
The rame prmod once moro to the writers
satisfaction that any team which .depends
upon forward passing as the basis of Us at
tack Is doomed to disaster. Out of I h -1
times that Pennsylvania put the ball In plaj,
puntlr.g excluded, tho forward pass wns useci
its times, succeeding four times for a, total
of .15 yards. Efforts were mode to rush tho
ball Just eight times. Ono such play gained
20 yards, npother ne. Tho remainder wero
either losses or gains of but a J ard ot -two.
The schemo of Dartmouth'a attack called for
a rushing and running attack as the basis,
with the toward pnes for variety nnd to keep
tho defonso weakened Also, Dartmouth haa
InterfHicnco for runners, and ends who could
get down tho field under kicks. Indeed, the
Dartmouth ends this year wero oulto as ef
fective as those of a year ago. Merrell had
hardly a chance to run back kicks, and the
wonder Is that be held punts as well as ho
Princeton almost Joined tho ranks of the
famous "come-back teams." That wonderful
rally In tho fourth period, with tho score 10-0
In Yalo'B fnor, will become hlstorlo In tho
Tigers' gridiron annals Tho only thing lack
ing to mnko tho game famous for all tlmo was
thnt Trlnceton didn't get tho third touchdown
which would hao won tho game. Previously,
Pennsylvania nnd Yale had enjoyed the dis
tinction of producing the only real come-back
tenms. In 11)02. Pennsylvania was led 11-0
by Cornell at tho end of tho first half, bdt
In tho second half tho Quakers tallied 12
points and won the gnme. Then Yalo beat
Frincelnn in almost the same way in 1007.
In lOllf. Pennsylvania was apparently over
whelmed by Michigan, tho first half ending
21-0 In Michigan's favor, but in tho second
half the Quakers camo back and scored 28
points, winning the game, 20-20.
" " SUBS DO Tlin WORK.
Tho marvelous feature of Princeton's exhi
bition on Saturday wns thnt up to the moment
Princeton turned, the Yale team seemed to
have an Immense advantage, and It wns ox
tremely doubtful If Princeton could score. Yet
two of tho men who saved the day for the
Tigers wero second-string players. Neither
Dlckcrmsn nor Morro has been considered
good enough to start any Important game,
and even Law had been regarded as a sub
stitute Beforo the gamp, tho writer expressed the
opinion that while both Yale ami Princeton
had devoted a groat deal of tlmo to open
football, notably tho forward and lateral
passes, tho Yale men had built tho more
soundlv. Theso tomblnntlon passes had much
to do with Yale's, first two touchdowns. But '
both of them were well screened and had so
many possibilities that Princeton never knew
where Yale would strike. But Yale also had
a good rushing attack, and gained through
Princeton's lino with almost as much easo
as did Harvard tho week before.
It was largely through the rushing and run
ning attack that Princeton scored against
Yale, and this weakness on the Ells' part is
likely to be fatal against a team so powerful
as Harvard in rushing tactics. Since the
Harvanl men have struck their gait they have
been able to break up all kinds of forward
pasting They will meet a complicated forward-passing
game from Yale, and the in
genuity of their defened will be tested to the
utniost. But from this distance the Harvard
running and rushing offense, coupled with the
Crimson's strength In the kicking- department,
looks to be a far more formidable weapon
than the Yale attack.

tho supervision of Francis 13. Warner,
chairman of the Orcen Committee. When
tho Improvements are completed the

The present cop bunkers on these three
holes will be removed.
No. 4 will bo an entirely new hole, 200

an admirable one. Eliot hole, with an ac
curato tej necessary In order to hold the

placed to punish tny kind of a poor shot.
The gretn Is raised at the left, with a
thiee-foot drop beyond.
The sixth holo will follow the old fifth
fairway, but will ba 536 yards long Out
of bounds to the right will be done away
vlth and traps will be well placed all
long the line to tho left. The left ap-
roach Is well guarded and the green Is

f the character of the present sixth or
elbow hole, except that the distance Is
t ssened to 270 yards. The carry U across

tives left town this morning to attend the
annual meeting of the Amateur Athletic
Union of America at tho Waldorf-Astoria
tonight Tho Philadelphia, delegation Is
a strong one, and entertains the hope that
some of tho suggestions about needed
changes In the rules of competition will
rccelvo proper uttentlo'n.
Many Important nitrations are to be de
cided nt tho annual session, and thief
nmong them will bo whether army nnd
navy athletes will bo permitted to com
pote without the formality of registra
tion. At this tlmo tho United States Gov
ernment forbids such registration of Its
sorvlcc men, and sc long ns the A. A. U.
turns a deaf ear to tho suggestions which
would right the matter, so long will dif
ficulties arlso over dual club contests. It
will ho recalled that a New York club's
swimming team competed against the
middles not so long ago, nnd tho regis
tered men were suspended until tho wholo
matter was stralghtoned out. Ono gortl
reason for waiving tho registration rulo
Is this Illustration.
Several radical amendments to tho con
stitution havo been offered by tho vari
ous divisions of the A. A. U., and some
warm debutes aro likely to be heard.
Will tho IG-pound shot-put event bo
abolished? That Is another Interesting
question to bo settled. Somo of the dele

Leo Houck will attempt to redeem him
self tonight beforo the fans of his homo
town, Lancaster, Pa., when he meets
"Kid" Wagner In a scheduled six-round
bout. While It is generally admitted that
Houck Is a better man than "Young"
Ahcarn, the Brooklyn dancing master, by
whom ho was beaten on Saturday night
at the National A. C, there was no doubt
nbout tho fact he was clearly outpointed
by his less famous rival.
"Kid" Wagner, Houck's opponent to
night, will bo an exceedingly hard prop
osition. Houck Is not in the best con
dition nt present, despite tho fact that
ho haa been playing footbnll In Lancas
ter for somo tlmo. He 'has been holding
down tho fullback position slnco ho has
broken Into rugby ranks. However, he
has not been doing enough ring work
lately, nnd that partly accounts for his
comparatively poor showing against
In his present condition, Houck Is apt to
be pushed to tho limit to beat Wngner.
Tho "Kid" is a rangy, shifty boxer, who
is equally clever with his right or loft
hand. In tho ring it Is dinicult to tell
by his position whether he is left handed
or right handed, for ho Is constantly shift
ing to get his opponent off his guard and
compel him to make a false lead. Fur
thermore, Wagner is a hard hitter, ns
many of his recent opponents can testify.
He swings well with both hands and Is
quick at taking advantage of any lapse
of defense on the part of tho man oppo
site him In the ring. Wagner halls froim
