The New Jersey College Preparing for the Harvard Game.

Now that the date of the Harvard game is drawing near, vigorous preparations are being made at Princeton. Many of the old players have returned to coach the team. In addition to J. B. Fine, Arthur L. Wheeler and John Poe, the regular coaches in charge of the men, Brown, end rush of last year's eleven Frank Morse, former half back, Janeway who played guard on the championship '89 team, and Alexander Moffat '84, have just gone to Princeton from New York.

The backs and ends are being in structed in a new kind of interference to be used in the game with Harvard. The team holds secret practice for a part of each afternoon. The play for the most part in the open practice has been quick and snappy, but fumbles are frequent.

The Princeton team has been weakened considerably by the loss of Wheeler. Although debarred from competing in the great games, he is helping the team by playing on the scrub eleven.

The weakest place at present in Princeton's line is at the guard positions. Neither Riggs nor Rhodes is playing a very good game, and the scrub team in the practice games makes big holes on both sides of centre.

The new style of play is being watched eagerly by the Princeton students in the hope that it may prove effective soon enough for the Harvard game. At present it is somewhat ragged and loose, but it will be given a thorough trial before it will be abandoned.
