THE GAME TODAY.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Dartmouth has come to Cambridge to win. The success or failure of their entire football season depends upon the outcome of the game today, more than upon any other. It is the last game of their season and they are in a position to take every chance that offers itself to aid in securing a victory. Although a comparison of past scores is not a sure means of forecasting future results, if such a comparison is made of the Dartmouth and Harvard scores this season, our opponents appear to have the stronger team. While Princeton defeated us 8 to 6, it defeated Dartmouth 3 to 0 by the merest fluke, and those who saw the game were inclined to believe that Dartmouth had really the more effective team.

What the Harvard team lacks in veteran material is made up for in the fighting spirit of the players. Upon this spirit the University team must depend to win the game. Opposed to a heavier, and, from past results, a more successful team, our chances for victory may appear slim. We can but await the outcome with the hope that a strong adversary will make our team play as it has not played before. Success in the contest should put us in a position to play Yale next Saturday on even terms. If we lose today, the result is not altogether decisive, but it could be only a miracle that would then deliver Yale into our hands. The CRIMSON together with almost every undergraduate, has felt all along that Captain Fisher's team possesses championship material. Today's game, more than any yet played, must prove that this confidence is justifiable.
