BETWEEN THE LINES
Two second year men, Lloyd Jordan and Dr. Eddie Anderson will meet each other for the second time today. Anderson inherited a one and nine team and last year won four, lost five, and tied one. Jordan moved in after a one and eight season, but lacking the freshmen Anderson got, he was unable to improve upon his predecessor's record.
Anderson, in his college days, was an end on Knute Rockne's great 1919-20 teams, playing along with the great George Gipp. He went to medical school three years after he started coaching.
Last season was the first in which Holy Cross defeated the Crimson since 1935. Of the 25 games played between the two schools, Harvard has won 17 and tied one.
With Columbia inactive because of polio, Princeton is playing NYU this afternoon. The Columbia-Princeton game was originally scheduled for television, but instead local videots will be able to watch Yale play Navy.
Elmer Madar, Holy Cross end coach, was one of the Michigan men who came to Harvard and left with Art Valpey.
Holy Cross is, the second of three teams the Crimson scouts will not be able to see before game time. Columbia, on tap for next week, and Springfield are the other two.
Although there are no Ivy League games this afternoon, five Ivy teams open their seasons. An inexperienced Dartmouth faces Temple, the traditional Syracuse-Cornell game takes place in Ithaca, Army meets Villanova, and Yale and Princeton are also in action.
Art Lubell, the only man who ever made All-American three years in a row, will be on the Holy Cross side of the stands this afternoon. Lubell achieved this strange distinction while playing for Virginia and is remembered for his great run in the Virginia-Alabama game. The run covered 132 yards, and occurred when Lubell, starting from his own 33, was stunned at scrimmage, ran to his own goal line before he realized he was going the wrong way and then turned around and threaded his way among the entire Alabama team for the score.
