YALE CLASHES WITH PRINCETON
Annual Contest to be Played in New Palmer Memorial Stadium.
Yale will oppose Princeton this afternoon at Princeton in their annual football game. To date Yale has won 20 of these annual contests to the 10 mon by Princeton, 9 games having resulted in tie scores.
Basing its hopes on a fast, powerful backfield, the expectation that the week's practice has considerably strengthened the line, and a double and triple lateral pass that has proved decidedly effective thus far Yale looks forward to a victory. The line is inexperienced, and consequently the chances of success depend as much on its unknown ability to stop the Princeton attack as upon the known brilliancy of the Yale backfield. It is certain that the backfield is decidedly superior in every way to the Princeton combination. Wilson, Ainsworth, Knowles, and LeGore forming one of the best offensive machines that has represented Yale in years. Princeton expects the team to make an infinitely better showing today than it did last Saturday, inasmuch as Coach Hart has remedied several of the weak points so apparent in that contest. The men are all in excellent condition, the eleven has been thoroughly drilled in breaking up the Yale formations, and the "wide-open" game has been perfected to a fine degree within the last week.
Edgar Palmer, donor of the new memorial stadium, will formally present the edifice to Princeton before the game. President Hibben will accept it on the behalf of the university and Dean McClenahan will represent the Athletic Association.
