Bij University Elevens Meet To-day
For Fourteenth Tune—Neither
Goal Line Has Been Crossed For
Touchdown Siuce 1011
Now York, Nov. 14.—The football
teams of Princeton and Yaie L'uiversi
ti«.s play their aniiuHi game at Prince
toa this afternoon. Several interesting
coincidents mark this particular meet-
of the elevens. To begin with it
is the fortieth game between the uni
versities, the series having been start
i i in t:>73. During tuis long stretch
oi ytars not a single dispute of suf
li.ient importance to threaten the
at.iletic relations of the two varsity
r.vals has developed. As if in celebra
tion of this splendid spirit of sports
manship. Vale will, as the opponent of
Princeton, figure prominently in the
formal opening of the Palmer Memor
ial stadium the Tigers' new football
This huge structure, second only in
si/.e to the new Vale "Bowl," with its
seating capacity for 41,000 spectators
will permit the Princeton management
to accommodate a larger gathering ot
football followers than has heretofore
witnessed any one game between these
two university teams. According to the
statements of Treasurer George h'.
Murray, the Palmer stadium will be
tilled this afternoon every seat having
been sold and r.s a result the gross gate
receipts will aggregate SBO,OOO. This'
sum is considerable in excess of any
previous game receipts and as it is di
\ led equally between the athletic as
sociations of the two universities will
go far toward meeting the expenses
incurred by various sport teams which!
annually lost money, such as the crews
and track teams.
With new records for attendance I
an t gate receipts assured close follow
ers of football are predicting that the
recent record of no touchdown games
v .1 also be wiped out. Not since the
I'J 1 1 game has either university cross
ei her rival's line for a touchdown. In!
t Ia t year -Sani White pi:'ked up a Vale
fumble and ran sixty odd yards, scor
ing Princeton's winning points. In
1912 the game ended iu a t> to 6 tie.
ea h eleven scaring two field goals, the
most sensational being Piimpelly's
forty-nine yard drop kick which tied
the S'-ore for Vale in the closing min
utes of the game. Last season Hobey
Baker dropped a successful field goal
for the Tigers and Guernsey did like
wise for Vale. According to the experts
the swift, open and dashing attack of
the two teams this autumn warrants
tii- belief that one or both will suc
ceed iu carrying the i'sil across the
o::>onents line. O:: enthusiastic
P-'inceton supporter has gone so far as
to predict that the honor will fall to
quarterback Ames, the >on of the fa
mous "Snake"' Ames now coaching at
Princeton, whose ninety and sixty-five
yard runs against Harvard iu the ISS9
g; me are gridiron classics.
While tlr< pressing prophecv hard
t fact stands out" that Princeton
football is celebrated for developing
family sta -s from generation to gen
eration. The names of the Poes,
Hnl others have won places in the
<"iinge and black honor roil and hardly
.■I is played which does not pro
duce some sensational player or play.
It is tlvs feature as well as the tradi
tions which surround the series that
makes the annual Princeton-Vale game
one of the football events of the year. |
• ioing back over the records it * seen
that each season the teams have met I
11 interesting games regardless of the'
a :;io>t ronstant changes in the rules, j
When Princeton and Yale lined up
in the initial game of the series in
1573, the contest was played under
the "Rules of 1873'' which were a!
iii.nlorficariou of the association cole.
Tli'ee years later the Intercollegiate!
•ales were adopted but an arbitrary
a • lit.en was made to the effect that
go:: Is only should count as in previous
reasons. In ISS2 the rules were amend
ed s 0 that two safeties equalled a.
touchdown and a year later the point
scoring system, now in vogue, was

lirst used. Previous to that year Yale
hail won two games, Princeton two
ami tour were ties. Since 1883 Yale
has won eighteen games; Princeton
eight niul live hail ended in tie con
tests. During these comparatively
modern years of the game Vale has
scored 213 points to Princeton's 130.
This prepondrance of points in favor
of the Blue is due to the fact that
most of Yale's victories have been
double figure ones. In sixteen out of
eighteen victories Vale scored in
double figures, the largest score being
made in IS9O when Princeton was
crushed 32 to 0. The Tigers biggest
score was made in lSPti when Vale
fell before the Orange and Hlack by
a s,ore of 2 I to 6. A recapitulation
of the entire series of thirty-nine
games since 1873. therefore, shows
that Yale has won twenty games;
Princeton ten and nine have resulted
in ties.
The startling announcement that
Connie Mack had asked waivers on the
Philadelphia Athletics trio o. pitchers
Bender, Plank and Coombs, furnished
a sensational climax to a sensational
baseball season. Many explanations,
aside from the rather vague one put
forward by Mack, have been offered
but the only reasonable certainty is
that Mack a* well as the magnates of
tiie American League knew full well
that Bender and Plank at least, wouli
never leave the junior major league.
I oonibs, because of his long illness, is
considered a negligible quantity. Plank
has a grand pitching average o ' .(546
and a world's series average of .1!"
siuce joining the Athletics. Bender has
a better record, his league pitching
average for twelve years being .650,
and bis world's series average .534.
Notwithstanding their age from a
baseball standpoint, it is likely that
!>oth will be placed with other Ameri
can League clubs during the shifts and
readjustments sure to take place this
! winter.
In connection with the announce
ment of the date of the next annual
meeting of the National 1 ollegiate
Athletic Association, to be held at
Chicago. December 20, the association
has issued, a statement regarding the
right an I wrong views of athletic
sport. In part it is as follows;
"Athletic sport, if honorably and
"iseljj conducted, can hold its own in
any institution of learning; but to gain
a position of dignity, it must be saved
from many ot" its "friends, and main
tained on so high a level that uo rea
sonable man can question its value.
Rightly administered it strengthens
the weak, improves the weak placed
in the strong, clears the brain, teaches
boys aud young men to respect their
bodies and to know the relation of a
clean, vigorous body to an active mind
and an honorable life. Rightly con
ducted it is a school of manly skill,
courage, honesty, self-control and even
of courtesy: wrongly conducted it is a
school of bad manners, vulgarity,
trickv evasion, brutality—the ideas
not of a sportsman, but of a sporting
"We are constantly told that in
England men play for the sako of
playing, whereas in America men play
for the sake of winning. The more se
rious the question of winning, the more
serious the need of winning honorably.
S|Hirt in America is not mere fun; it
is a test of character, and nothing
that makes the player less a gentle
man belongs to it. The football "player
who wantonly injuries his rivals, the
baseball player who persists in shout
ing to rattle his opponents, the school
1)0y or student who takes monev for
summer base ".ill and conceals the
fact, should be put out of the team.
Nor should any school or any college
have secrets as to the legitimacy of its :
athletic representatives.

Vice President Chandler Explains That
Rumor Started Herrmann's
Philadelphia, Nov. 14.—The Phillies
are not for sale, but they can be
bought if anyone wants to come across!
with a satisiactorv price was the sum |
and substance of a statement made by
T. ( handler, vice president of the
Philadelphia baseball club, last night. I
Mr. I handler spoke in replv to the j
report that the Ward Brothers, of the
Brooklyn Feds, were trying to purchase
the Phillies, Mr. Chandler said: "All
that we know about the matter is that
-Mr. Baker, our president, received a
telegram from Garry Hen-maun asking
if he would sell the Phillies. Mr. Baker'
replied that he would sell almost any-j
thing he had if he got his price. Fur
ther than that we know uothiuig.
"I was with Mr. Baker dav before
yesterday and up to that time'no offer
had been made for the Phillies bv the !
Wards or anyone else. The Phi Hit's are:
not on the market and if we should sell!
the club the purchaser would have to
pay a very good price. We have the
grounds here, a ncculus for a good team
and above all we are in a good ball
tow-n, so why should we lie anxious
to sell. We have no intention of do
ing so."
The minor that the Wards were aft
er the Phillies originated at New York.
The story had it that a conference j
would be held in this city last night to
talk over the deal. It is supposed that j
Garry Herrmann, who seems to have'
taken upon himself the work of bring-,
jug the Federals and organized base- 1
ball together, had sent out the feeler
to the Phillies. Herrmann is anxious to i
secure National or American League
clubs for Weeghman and the Wards, I
who furnish the sinens of war of the'
Federal League. It" Weeghman can get
the Chicago Cubs and the Wards "an
Eastern club the first step towards
bringing all factions into harmonv i
would be taken.
Yankees' Representative Talks With
Pitcher at Gettysburg Home I
Gettysburg, Pa., Nov. 14.—Follow
ing persistent rumors concerning Ed
die Plank joining th e New York Amer
icans next year, the visit to Gettysburg
yesterday of Arthur Irwin, scout for
the Yankees, is regarded as particularly
significant, although the result of the
conference wa.« kept a deep secret.
Yesterday morning Irwin visited
Plank at his home on the farm, a short
distance from town, where lie was
closeted with the great left-hander for
several hours, finally returning to town,
and left on the -first train out. He would
give out no statement before his de
parture, evidently wishing Plank to
make known what he desired. When
Plank was seen regarding Irwin's visit,
he said:
"I cannot tell you a word. Some time
before spring I will have something to
say, and then my Gettysburg friends
will know my plans."
