Columbia Rejects Stanford Request for Football Game

Columbia University authorities yesterday confirmed reports that they have turned down Stanford's proposal to play the Lion football team on September 30 at New York.

Stanford has also approached several other Eastern colleges seeking a replacement for the Harvard game which Provost Buck cancelled early in February. Buck said then that he was attempting "to lighten a far too heavy schedule."

Columbia received Stanford's offer late last month. After considering its schedule and the Indians' 44 to 0 rout of the Crimson, which Columbia beat only 14 to 7, the university refused the game because "present material did not warrant scheduling Stanford."
