The most prominent feature, or at least among the most prominent, in the game on Saturday was Princeton's superiority in drop-kicking and dropping on the ball. In rushing and blocking, being a somewhat lighter team, they were behind Harvard; but in these two important points and also in holding the ball. Harvard was obviously inferior to her opponents. We are reliably informed that Yale is also very sure in goal kicking from the field, and that she depends on Harvard's inferiority in this respect as one of her chief sources of confidence for success in Saturday's game. We beg to say a final word to the team before the important game of Wednesday next. Beware of kicking high punts from half or quarter-backs. Princeton barely missed gaining a goal on Saturday from a fair catch of one of these high punts, and if Yale should be given the same opportunity in the coming game we fear it would be fatal to Harvard. We do not profess ability in general to give advice to the team, but this point was especially noticed in the Princeton game.
Another fact evidenced last Saturday was the futility of the new five yards rule to obviate the playing of the "block" game. Princeton's - or rather Peace's - skilful playing in this respect to waste time, made it plain that it was as easy to play a stationary, defensive game as before the new rule was adopted. It is to be hoped that some means may be taken at the next convention to make it impossible for a team to avoid playing an active, offensive game throughout.
