Foot Ball.

HARVARD, 43; DARTMOUTH, O.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard won the second game of the foot ball season Saturday afternoon, defeating Dartmouth by a score of 43 to 0. The game abounded in brilliant plays, and was one of the prettiest contests which will be seen on Jarvis field this year. Both elevens were inclined to play roughly, each having a man disqualified for slugging; some of the Harvard rushers, too exhibited he same tendency to play off-side, which proved so costly in the Exeter game. These faults are not unnatural at the beginning of the season, however, and doubtless will disappear as the men play longer.

The game began at 3.17 o'clock with Dartmouth in possession of the ball. The V which was formed enabled Allen to carry the ball ahead 12 yards before he was stopped. The Dartmouth backs were unable to make any impression upon Harvard's line, however, and the ball was lost on four downs. Lake carried it ahead some for Harvard, and then Corbett, by two excellent rushes, got it down near Dartmouth's line The ball was then given to Lee, but Scruton got through and stopped him, with considerable loss to Harvard. With the ball at the 30-yard line Trafford tried for a goal from the field, and caused no little enthusiasm by sending the ball through the posts. Score, 5-0.

Dartmouth failed to gain on the first rush, but the next time Norton carried the ball well into Harvard's territory by a pretty run of 35 yards. Scruton was disqualified at this point for slugging Cranston, and McKay took his place. The Harvard rushers gradually forced the ball away from their goal, and forced Norton to make an unsuccessful try for a goal from the field When the ball was brought out Lee carried it ahead, but it was lost to Dartmouth for interfernce. An exchange of punts now took place without material gain to either side; finally Corbett secured the ball, and running half the length of the field through the whole Dartmouth eleven, scored a touch-down; Trafford kicked the goal. Score, 11-0.

Dartmouth failed to advance the ball when it was brought out by rushing, so it was kicked, and Harvard secured it. Lake made a very pretty run of 30 yards, and then another of 25 yards, the fine blocking of Cumrock aiding him materially. Corbett then took the ball, and deposited it on the other side of Dartmouth's line; Trafford kicked the goal. Score, 17-0.

Dartmouth began well when the ball was put in play, Norton carrying it some distance into the Harvard territory; he could not keep it up, however, and the ball came to Harvard on four downs. The ball was given to Corbett, but he was almost immediately tackled; he succeeded in passing the ball to Trofford, however, and he carried it ahead 20 yards. Lee then made a good dodging run around the end and gained a great deal of ground. He was hurt when tackled, but resumed his place after a short rest. Short rushes by Lake and Corbett carried the ball over Dartmouth's line the third time; the try for goal was successful. Score 23-0. Time was called soon after the ball had been put in play. The Harvard line played a sharp steady game for the most part during this half; Lee's end seemed the weakest point, but his runs were effective. Back of the line the men all played well; Trafford's tackling and blocking were excellent.

The second half began at 4.02 with Harvard in possession of the ball, and the spectators were treated to one of the prettiest exhibitions of rushing and blocking ever seen on Jarvis Field. The ball was passed to Lake; taking full advantage of the scientific blocking of the men before him, dodging in and out, he wormed his way through the Dartmouth team, ran the full half length of the field, and scored a touch-down; Trafford failed in his try for goal. Score 27-0.

Dartmouth failed to gain by rushing and was forced to kick. A bad pass of Dean's was recovered by Corbett and Cumrock without serious loss. The ball soon went to Dartmouth, however, and it was only through the good tackling of Trafford and Cumrock that serious loss was prevented. After an exchange of kicks, Harvard had the ball down in Dartmouth's territory; Lake found a hole in the line and scored a touch down, carrying a Dartmouth rusher around his neck; goal. Score 33-0. It was only a few minutes before Lake scored another touch down; no good. Score 37-0.

The ball was kept in Dartmouth's territory, and the ball was at last passed to Norton to kick. Dean broke through the line, however, secured it, and scored a touch down, from which Trafford kicked a goal. Score 43-0. This ended the scoring, and from this time on the play was very even.

Harvard's rushers did not play so well in this half. Once they allowed the opposing line to make a bad hole; in addition they were not quick and if it had not been for the tackling of the backs Dartmouth would probably have scored. The elevens were made up as follows:
