An innovation in spring training methods has recently been put into effect at the Princeton football field. In order to instill new ideas into the preliminary work, Coach Roper has arranged for a transfer of coaches between Princeton and the University of Michigan.
Fielding Yost, the Michigan mentor, has arrived in Princeton to help in the practice for a week. Together with Harvey Emery, former Princeton tackle, he will instruct the men daily in his Michigan tactics. After Yost's stay is up Coach Roper and Keene Fitzpatrick, the Tiger trainer, will go to Ann Arbor and supervise the work of the conference team.
In his work at Princeton, Coach Yost has said that he finds no great difference in the way football is taught in the east and in the west. He believes with the Princeton coach, however, that the exchange of ideas should be of mutual benefit.
