Yale and Harvard Elevens.

The Work Each Team has Done this Season.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The team which Harvard will face at Springfield tomorrow is probably the strongest team Yale has ever put in the field. Captain Rhodes began the season with a nucleus of old and experienced players; besides himself there were Heffelfinger, Hartwell, the two Morisons, McClung and Harvey; in addition Williams and C. Bliss had had some experience and had shown themselves valuable men. Holcomb had served an apprenticeship of three years on the second eleven, and Wallis, Mills, Adams and Crosby had all done good work in the same training school. Barbour had done good work at Exeter and on the freshman team last year, and finally, N. Bliss, an incoming freshman, had promised well when at Andover.

This indeed does not end the list of candidates, but it is from these men that the team is to be chosen which will represent Yale tomorrow. It is a team which is certain to give Harvard a hard light. It began the season weakly, but the following table of the games played shows how steadily has been the improvement, especially during the month of November:

The first column of figures represents Yale's score, the second that of their opponents.

Oct. 1, Wesleyan, at New Haven, 8-0

Oct. 4, Crescents, at Brooklyn, 18-6

Oct. 8, Wesleyan, at Middletown, 34-0

Oct. 11, Lehigh, at New Haven, 26-0

Oct. 15, Trinity, at Hartford. 40-0

Oct. 18, Orange A. C., at Orange, 16-0

Oct. 22, Williams, at New Haven, 36-0

Oct. 25, Amherst, at Amherst, 10-0

Nov. 1, Wesleyan, at New Haven, 76-0

Nov. 4, Crescents, at Brooklyn, 52-0

Nov. 8, Rutgers, at New Haven, 70-0

Nov. 15, U. of P., at New Haven, 60-0

Totals, 446-6

Average score per game, 37.

McClung and L. Bliss have scored the most of Yale's touch-downs; Williams and S. Morison stand next to them,

The following table shows the age, weight and height of the men who are likely to play on the Yale team tomorrow:

Age. Weight. Height.

Hartwell, l. e., 21 167 6.1

Wallis, l. t., 18 169 5.10

Heffelfinger, l. g., 21 196 6.3

Holcomb, c., 21 187 6.1

S. Morison, r. g., 20 185 6.2

Rhodes, r. t., 22 167 5.10

Crosby, r. e., 20 168 5.11

Barbour, q. b., 19 145 5.5

McClung, l. h., 22 167 5.10

L. Bliss, r. h., 18 148 5.8

Adams, 22 165 5.11 1-2

B. Morison, 22 173 6.12

Mills, 20 172 5.11 1-2

The rush line averages 177 4-7 lbs., just ten pounds heavier than Harvard's line averages. The rushers average over six feet in height and will far overtop the Harvard line, which averages only 5 ft. 9 in. per man.

The following are the games played by Harvard this season:

Nov. 12, Amherst, at Springfield, 64-0

Total, 543-6

This table seems to show that the Harvard eleven is more of a scoring team than the Yale eleven. Such tables are always deceptive, however, as they make no allowances for the different methods of play of the two teams.

The table of the ages, weight and height of the candidates for the eleven which follows was compiled from the record kept at the gymnasium:

Age. Wt. Ht.

A. J. Cumnock '91 23 158 5.8 1 2

J. D. Upton '93, 20 153 5.8

J. R. Finlay '91, 21 192 5.10

J. S. Cranston, Sp., 24 189 5.10

P. D. Trafford, L. S., 24 172 6.

M. Newell '94, 20 161.5 5.7

F. W. Hallowell '93, 20 149 5.8

F. Mason, Sp., 22 155 5.5

S. V. R. Crosby '91, 22 141 5.8

D. S. Dean '91, 20 146 5.7

G. F. Harding, L. S., 22 142 5.4

E. J. Lake '92, 20 173 5.9

J. Corbett '94, 21 156 5.8

J. P. Lee '91, 20 172 5.10

T. E. Sherwin '94, 18 142.5 5.10

G. R. Fearing '93, 20 164 6.1

B. W. Trafford '93, 19 165 5.11

L. A. Frothingham '93, 19 145 5.9

H. Alward, L. S., 25 158 5.8

D. W. Shea '94, 21 166 5.11

J. A. Blanchard '91, 21 173 5.10

A. Shaw, Sp. 21 194 5.8

F. R. Bangs '91, 21 178 5.9

J. T. Heard '92, 21 174 6.

The average weight of the forwards is 167 5-7 los. The rushers are unusually light men, therefore, but their activity and experience at the game will in some measure make up for this.
