they battle for the championship of th
nidlmn. th foot ball team of Harvard
and Tal meet her today In th final
contest of their respective schedule. A1
thouth shorn of much of their former

In general Interest In the annual claah

11 eastern foot ball classics win be wlt
leseed by a throne; of thousands which
will test th rapacity or th Harvard
tadlum as In the years when the winner

While ther Is no possibility of new
attendance or 'rate receipt records this
fact la du to Inability to accommodate
more than 47.000 persons In the stadium of
oWlers field. If th rreat Harvard
smphfthrater had th seating capacity
f th Tale bowl It Is not unlikely that
th . gridiron struggle of the morrow
would attract a Catherine; as lame as
lhat which was present at th dedication
f the Ella arena last antumn, when Har

for tickets, which Is far In excess of th
supply, has demonstrated that lure of th
(am la not dependent upon the elevena

Tlnal contest of th year with unblem
Yale Oatlantc Not Rriikt.
If auch wer th can ther would be
tiany empty tiers In the stadium today,
'nr not in many yeara has Tale com to
Tambrldire with surU a dismal record as
:hat.mad by the team of 1915. Eliminat
ing; all consideration of th Princeton
ram th fact remains that th Blue
lost four of th first seven tames of Its
ichedule, being defeated by Virginia.
Brown, Oolgat and Washington and
Jefferson. A desperate effort to rally the
shattered forces of th Blue was mad In
the closing weeks of th season, but with
partial success. A new corps of coaches
was called In after Colgate's triumph
and against Brown and Frlnceton th Ell
leven showed marked Improvement.
Compared with Harvard' record of vic
tory over all teama faced this fall, except
Cornell, th outlook for th Blue to de
feat th Crimson Is not particularly
Tber ar reasons, however, why Tsl
has not entirely given up hope of being
hie to save a most disastrous season
from rout by winning or tying witS th
Cambridge combination In the closing
contest of th year. Th Eli foot ball
material Is not without its merit and
wh'le It Is admitted that Tale mad a
wretched start th faithful adherents of
th tsam bellev that th eleven wilt
arts to th occasion today and surprise
the optimistic Harvard oontlngant Cor
nellproved that th Crimson was not
invincible while Penn Stat and Prince
ton. although defeated several times,
threatened to overwhelm th Cambrldg
Crimea Great Machlae. k
That Tale should succeed where these
powerful team failed seems Unlikely, 'but
th hopeful point out that man for man
ther is little advantage oiy way or th
other. Harvard, with Its almost perfect
coaching system, has evolved a fine foot
ball tnachtn while Tal ha yet to find
itself. Veterans recall that In 1M0 much
th sam conditions prevailed. Tal had
been defeated by Brown and th Army;
held to a scoreless tie by Vanderbllt; had
great difficulty In defeating Syracuse and
Holy Cross, yet rallied under th eleventh-hour
coaching of Shevlln and suc
ceeded In defeating Princeton and holding
Harvard to a no-score tie.
Those who know th real meaning of
the old Tal fighting spirit; th possi
bilities of th present squad and th driv
ing power of Bhevlln, an emergency
coach, hop for th best and ar not
avers to wagering reasonable sums on
th Blue at the odds Harvard cohorts
hav been offering. To th great majority
f follower of th two universities th
question of victory or defeat Is not the
utmost Import - Th fact that Tal and
Harvard are to meet In th greatest
ports event of th Inter-varslty year Is
sufficient reason for their presence In the
tadlum on Saturday and they will be
ther with their wives, sisters and sweet
hearts until ther remains not room fop
another person. Other eleven may be
hailed as champions, but today all that
will be forgotten as th two anotent
rival struggle In th green turfed pit
surrounded by th towering wall of th
stadium to which will cling. In serried
rows, thousands of th loyal follower of
Yale Wla Meet Gauae.
Even though defeat be its portion.

THREE STRONG TEAMS OUT
NEW TORK, Nov. 19. Wh'le the Harvard-Tale
contest overshadows all other
foot bsll gsmes to be played on eastern
gridirons tomorrow, there are several
(ther struggles which will have an Im-
yM in-miun v., iiiu inmi bli iff uiiKlli III
the elevens for the season of 1915.

the outcome of tha annual meeting of the
I nine ana v nmiwin, dui ine uarrmouin-

Wreieyan eon lefts and those In which the

Ther will be missing from the weekly
lineup, however, several of th larger
Institutions, for-Princeton haa completed
Its schedule, while Cornell and Pennsyl
vania are resting for their Thanksgiving
day gsme, which will close th season
for both teams.
Harvard a Favorite.
Based upon the theoiy and science of
modern foot ball. Harvard should be and
Is favored to defeit Tale, but that the
game will follow thes lines Is not at
all certain, since gridiron form ha re
ceived .far more than the usual number of
Jolts and upsets this fall. Foot ball la a
team game, where the perfect co-operation
of eleven players on offense and de
fense should outweigh th efforts of an
equal number of athletes who fall to
work with, the ram harmony and cohe
sion. It sometimes happens, however,
thst (he strength nnd individual ability
of men forming such a combination Is so
great that It will conquer a perfect ma
chine moulded from medlocer material,
especially If th breaks In the gam favor
the stronger but cruder playing eleven.
This was Remonstrated In th victory of
Tale over Princeton.
The Harvard eleven of 1915 I not of
th same caliber as Princeton, however,
, for the Crimson la built of better material
and by a coaching system which Is thor
oughly established and working with per
fect smoothness. Th Cambrldg team
haa been carefully trained and brought
forward especially for th Yale game,
whereas Princeton appeared to reach Its
best form at least two weeks before th
Blue was met
How Olmaoa Beat Tiger.
' Eliminating all consideration of ' th
games that preceded th triangular con
test between Yale, Princeton and Har
vard it will be found that Harvard de
feated Princeton th result ot a per
fectly engineered team touchdown and
on field goal by Mahan. against two by
Tlbbott Tal also conquered tha Tiger as
the result of two field goals by Guernsey
and a touchdown mad after Way had
picked up a fumbled ball and crossed
th tin through an absolutely clear field.
In this gam Tale was not atrong enough
to prevent Princeton from making a
team touchdown and barely escaped at
least on other.
It seems unlikely that Harvard will dis
play th weak apota In generalship and
strategy that Princeton wsa guilty of at
critical points In last Saturday's, gam,
or that Tal will find tha breaks of th
play falling o attadlly in its favor. Under
auch circumstance th ' Ella will hav
t depend 'upon either powerful tndlvtd
ual efforts or strong team play to over
come th Crimson machine.
Yale Makes stride.
Tal. sine Its string of defeat at th
hands' of Waahlngton and Jefferson, Col
gat and Brown, haa made remarkable
stride under th coaching of Tom Bhev
lln and other. It waa th development
of a powerful fighting aplrit and unuaual
keenneaa In following th ball rather than
any advancement In team work, either on
attack or defense, that got th Blue vic
tory over Princeton. That th' sam
methods applied to Harvard will result
In another win appears unlikely, although
It Is conceded that th battl will be far
closer than was thought a few weeks ago.
for th Ella now believe, and rightly so,
that they hav a chance of defeating t
Crimson. Th lines from tackle to tackle
ar about equal, while th Crimson has
the advantage at th end. At quarter
back Watson has shown himself to be a
better general than Van Nostrand, but
th Tal quarter plays a stronger Indi
vidual gam. Both teams hav powerful
backflelds. Harvard with Mahan, King
and Boles haa a great trio of plunger
and nd runners. For Tale, Captain Wil

as alternate, ar almost It not quit, as
In th kicking department of th
