T" largest score made against us so far this season was made
by 'Yale in 'the game at New Haven. The epidemic of
fumbling which has characterized our playing so much of
late was largely the cause of such a score. Much of the game
was given to punting and on the receiving of kicks was where
our boys showed up surprisingly weak. This was the first time
our team has ever met Yale and perhaps it was stage fright at the
large Y's that caused our defeat, or was largely responsible for
it. The first half was played with our team in a trance and be
fore they could recover themselves the score stood 30—o against
The work in the second half was a 'great improvement over the
playing in the first half. State here tried some line bucking and
end running with such good result that D. K. Miller was well on
his way past all Yale tacklers when he was' forced to bring back
the ball as penalty for an alleged off-side play. The punting,
when resorted to, resulted in favor of Yale and in this half they
succeeded .in adding twelve more points to the score. During the
latter part of the game Johnson was replaced at quarter by
Hewitt, who appeared for the first time' in a game since his injury
at West Point.
This defeat, large as the score may seem, should not be allowed
to dampen our *ardor. 'Remember that' " It's always darkest be-
