the outlook for a team for the present year
waa most discouraging. Crelghton had lost
by large scores to nearly all opponents, and
a spirit of discontent was apparent among
the players. In fact for a short period It

PHILADELPHIA. Nov. 28. The Navy
In a hard and clean game of foot ball on
Franklin field here thla afternoon before
a large and enthusiastic orowd defeated
their old rivals, the Army, by S to 0. After
six attempts to boot the ball from place
ment over the West Point goal line, Dal
ian, the sturdy right halfback of the mid'
ahlpmen, aucceeded on hla seventh effort
and the three polnta which ha had bean
striving for looked good to the Navy and
proved to be sufficient to win the game.
It was a pretty kick, squarely between
the goal posts, and waa made toward tha
end of tha last period of play. Tha kick
almost broke tha Army's heart, but. true to
tha tradlUona of tha teama that hav fought
for. West Point before them, tha Army
stuck to it and did not snow tha whit
feather. The Navy deserved the victory,
for the midshipmen put up a sterling game
and outplayed the cadeta from tha kick
off down to tha Instance when Field Judge
Fults threw up his hand and declared tha
contest at an and.
Dalton Trlea for Goal.
Of Dalton'a aeven attempta at goals from
the field three were made from the thirty
yard line, tha last of which aucceeded; one
from the nineteen-yard Una, on from
twenty-six yards, another from thirty
nine, and one mighty effort, fifty-one
yards, from the Army goal. All but three
carried to, the goal line, but tha stiff wind
from the northwest carried the ball to on
side of the WUal posts.
Dean, the star punter for the Army,
made two attempts at field goals, one from
the forty-four-yard line and the other at
forty-five yards, but neither kick o&me
near a acore.
Tha frequency with which tha resort waa
made to thla method of attempting to
score waa because of tha difficulty each
team had In advancing tha ball consistently.
Comparatively few nrat downs were made
by either team, but what advantage there
waa In this respect was with the Navy.
The midshipmen played a fine offensive
game and there were few tlmea throughout
the sixty minutes of action that the mid
shipmen did not have tha cadeta on tha
defensive. The game will go down in the
foot ball annals of West Point and Annap
olis as one of the cleanest and beat ever
played between tha two Institutions. It
waa fought before one of the largest
crowds that ever gathered on Franklin
field. Cvery stand waa taxed to its capac
ity. Tha private boxaa were filled and a
crushing mass of people choked up the
promenade that aurrounds tha four aides
of the gridiron. .
The ball was put In play on tha Navy's
twenty-five-yard line, Rodes dived into
center tor five yards and Dalton punted to
mldfleld. Tha Army fumbled and the Navy
got tha ball on their flfty-thrce-yard line.
On a forward pass the ball went to the
Navy on the Army'a twenty-yard Una. Dal
ton made fifty yards against right tackle
and the ball waa only fifteen yarda from
tha Army's goal. Dalton tried goal from
placement, but missed. The ball was put
In play on the Army's twenty-five-yard line
in the possession of tha Army. Dean kicked
and Clay ran the ball back ten yarda It
was the Navy's ball on their own forty-eight-yard
line. The third period ended
with the score, 0 to 0.
The fourth period began with the ball in
mldfleld. Hamilton returned to the game
at left end In place of Elmore. Dalton
kicked to the Army'a twenty-five-yard
line. Browne ran the ball back five yards.
Devote failed to gain and Dean dropped
back to kick and fumbled a high pass, but
recovered the ball on the Army'a twenty
Dalton plunged into the center for three

HASTINGS, Neb., Nov. 2. (Special.)
The authorities of Hasting college are
considering the advisability- of employing
an athletlo director on a permanent basis
to direct the training of foot ball and other
teama. A new $10,000 gymnasium has been
built and Indoor base ball and basket ball
team will be organised soon. Coach Holste
has made a splendid record for the college
In foot ball In the last three years and
negotiations are pending for his employ
ment as athletlo director.
In his three years of service as foot ball
coach tha Hasting team was beaten only
twice, once by Bellevue in vS and once
by Peru in 1909. During s time the
Hastings team won ten games and tied
four. In Holste's first year the team made
a total score of 105 against 9 by all op
1 nnts. Last year the aeason'a score was
lo for Hastings and 17 for all opponents.
Tills year tha total waa 44 for Hastings
and If for tha opposing teams. This year's
performance was especially remarkable by
reason of the fact that Holste had to start
with Inexperienced material. The Una was
made up of novices from end to end and
then there waa further handicap by tha
withdrawal of Slma, the quarterback. In
the middle of the season.
Local , supporters of tha team regret
Doane'a refusal to schedule a game with
Hastings or to accept Hasting' challenge
for a post season game to determine the
state championship. Acoordlng to the
scores of the season these two teams were
very evenly matched and although Hast
ings claimed the championship by virtue
of tha showing in the camparlson of scores
It was very anxious to settle all possible
dispute by meeting Doane in a final struggle.
