The Yale Courant in an article comparing the American and British game of foot-ball mentions the following as the most striking point of our game:

"Every one in the eleven has his position and his play. More than this, the quarter back play which the Britishers so much despise is the key to the whole game. That whole game is one system and the whole team a machine which depends upon the slightest move of that one man. Would any American player give up the beautiful play which results from this feature - the throws to the halves - the short passes to rushers - the quick kicks by the quarter himself, and take in its place the pell-mell pushing, hacking and butting of the English scrummage?"

It must be remembered, however, that as long as the Canadians play with 15 men on their teams our ideal of quarter back play cannot possibly be understood by them. Let them try elevens for a season and they will quickly see that in order to play a sure game some method must be used in retaining the ball after a down and in giving opportunities for running by quick and accurate passing. In pursuit of this method they will soon discover the strength of the American team and the open formation game.
