New York, 0?t. 31. —Mid-seasou in
college football find five of the leading
teams in the east undefeated —Prince-
ton, Harvard, West Point. Pittsburgh
and Pennsylvania State. Of these Har
vard 's eleven has on its hands to-day
the most serious task, since it faces
Michigan, while the other four are
playing teams looked upon as being not
so formidable. The Crimson's game
witli the Westerners—their first meet
ing since 1895 —is one of the season's
best gridiron attractions and is the
third clash between tast and West
In four games between Harvard and
Michigan dating back to 1881 Michi

Of the undefeated leading eastern
elevens Princeton plays Williams: West

State plays Lafayette. These opponets
of to-day did not meet last year.

team hopes to reverse last season's six
to sixteen score.
Pennsylvania and Cornell will play
teams from which they expect to win
without great effort. Pennsylvania
meets Swarthmore and Cornell has a
weaker opponent in Holy Cross, which
has not scored a point against an*
team this year.
Two other important contests on the

Dartmouth vs. Amherst. Syracuse on its

HARRISBURO STAR-INDEPENDENT, SATURDAY EVENING. OCTOBER 31. 1914.
BATTLE OF COACHES IN THE
HARVARD SIAM TO-DAY
Two Tutors of the Calibre of Percy D.
Haughton and Fielding H. Yost
Have Not Been Opposed in Foot
ball in Many Years
New York. Oct. 31.—When the Har- (
vard and Michigan football teams meet j
[ in the stadium at Cambridge this aft-1
ernoon the contest will be as much a:
battle between coaches as elevens. On j
the Michigan side of the field the west
j ern gridiron contingent will lie in
charge of Fielding H. Yost while on 1
1 the Crimson bench Pery D. Haughton !
| will direct the Harvard campaign. Two|
I coaches of greater fame have not been i
! opposed in football in many years and j
the struggle between the machines de
veloped and taught by these past mas
ters of gridiron strategy is expected to
be one of the classics of the autumn
Although differing widely in person
ality and methods Haughton and Y'ost
( year in and year out achieve wonders
with th e material that reports for foot
ball at the two great universities
i which they represent. Haughton is a
| coach who talks little, thinks deeply
i and is tireless in action. Once the
I early season preliminaries are complet-
I ed Haughton rules the squad with an
; iron han 1. He plays no favorites und
his instructions are sharp and to the
point. He demands explicit obedience'
and expects immediate improvement in :
play once a fault either individual or 1
I of the team as a whole, has been point-i
| ed out and the proper method of play
j Harvard's head coach is a keen stu-j
! dent of football and knows the game
both ancient and modern 111 every
! phase. He is an autocrat on the fivld, j
inclined to be sharp and caustic in his
instructions and remarks and a coach
who believes in hard practice and plen-j
j ty of it for both the Varsity and sec-!
! ond string players. He is quick to de !
! teet ability in a candidate and is al
ways looking far ahead, planning his
system and plays to fit the type of;
i team material at his disposal. Huugh-j
ton is inclined to be conservative in
his methods of attack although he can
and occasionally does devise startling'
and unusual plays which completely up <
set the opposing team because of their 1
, striking novelty and the cleverness with !
which they are developed from ordi-|
1 nary formations.
Yost might be aptly termed a foot
ball fanatic. Like Haughton, he was 14 ,
player and a brilliant oue in his un
dergraduate days but has never ceased
to absorb and keep up with the rapidly
changing game. In face many of the
plays and rules now part of the aunual
autumn college sport are directly trace
able to the Michigan coach. On the
field he is much more active and dem
onstrative than Haughton. He keeps
up a running tire of comment and
| criticism and frequently jumps into
line or backtield in order to personally
j illustrate just how the play he is aim
-1 ing at should be made. Speed and dash
is almost a mania with Yost and his
) constantly repeated phrase "Hurry up!
| Hurry up!" has caused it to be tacke 1
j on to his name in the west until the
j general follower of football believes
j that he was baptized " Hurry ITp
| Tlie mentor of the Ann Arbor foot
' ball teams is particularly famous for
j the brilliant, daring and unusual plays
1 j and football strategy which h? works

ens. While he knows and teaehos all

these are but the ground work. Yost
rises far above the ordinary football
plane. Given the proper material with
which to work he builds up a series of
skillfully conceived plays which be
cause of their originality cause conster
nation among opponents and frequently
the game officials. Y'ost, however, is a
keen student of the rules and seldom
springs a play which a careful reading
of the regulations will not prove to be
Off the field Haughton and Yost are
as unlike one another as they are when
in action. Haughton seldom talks foot
ball while Y'ost will spend hours dis
cussing the game in all its phases, il
lustrating particular plays with what
ever objects are handy. He can play
a game with eleven chairs or salt cel
lars, using a hall or a table as the case
may be and never fails to keep his audi
ence spellbound as he shifts his team
with lightning rapidity. Both coaches
are comparatively wealthy and men of
business affairs and interests during the
months when the football is dead. They
coach more for the love of sport than
because of the financial returns al
though both receive large salaries for
their three months' work each fall.
While the average spectator at to-day's
game will not see it, there will be a
great battle of wits and strategy at
Cambridge this afternoon and football
experts from all parts of the country
will be present to see the outcome.
Norman Brookes and Anthony P.
AAfilding, the Australasian winners of
the Davis Tennis Cup, are advocating;
changed in both the England tennis \
championship regulations and the Pa- 1
vis cup rules as well. In each case the
famous racquet experts' suggestions are
sportsmanlike and made with the idea
of improving the game and creating
greater interest in the sport. Wilding I
and Brookes both state that they be
lieve that the English singles cham
pionship holder should play through
succeeding title tournaments instead
of standing out and meeting the winner
at the end of the tourev as is the case
at present. Since Brookes holds the
honor at this time his advocating of a
change in the rules to conform with the
American plan carries unusual weight.
His suggestions regarding future Da
vis iup plfln are even more radical and
coming from a player of his age are
stripped of any personal advantage
since the plan would favor youth far I
more than a man averaging on forty, j
Brookes wants the cup holding coun
try to take part in each competition
from the start, and further, all the
matches in the different rounds to be'
: played on the same ground. Another'
important proposal that is put forward!
■is that the tournament should take \
place in a different country each year!
irrespective of which nation holds'the 1
cup. America, the British Isles and!
Canada, Norman Brookes suggests,
should visit Australia in November,!
19 la, anil even if the Australasians'
successfully defended the trophv the ;
next competition would take place in'
[either England, Canada or America. j
At the annual meeting of the frail-:
[chise owners of the Texas Baseball j
league to be held at Dallas, tomorrow'
a proposition to reduce the league from
ail eight to a six-club circuit will be
considered. Several of the league inag
nates are sui.l to favor such a move
but no forecast on the majority vote is
J possible. The 191} season was un-
I profitable ,n several cities and it is the
idea ol' those advocating a reduction;

Jones was quoted in a local paper
yesterday afternoon as follows:
1 cannot sav if Johnson will be
obtained by the St. Louis club. He
"ants a lot of money to come here.
Even if we met the salary he was paid
this season by the Washington club it
wolud be a good sum. Personally I am
not in favor of huge salaries for ball
players. They are overpaid now.
