FOOTBALL PROSPECTS FOR 1913

Yale, Dartmouth and Princeton Squads Compared in Outlook for Fall.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Yale football team will retain six of the eleven players who began the Harvard game last November. The five regulars who will not play next year are Captain Spalding, halfback; Bomeisler, all-American end for two years; Philbin, halfback; Gallauer, tackle; and Flynn, whose punting was of valuable assistance to the team last season. Although Yale has only six veterans from last year's team, there remain in college several first-class substitutes, seven of whom have won their "Y's."

At the ends Yale will have Avery, a player of two years' experience, and probably in Bomeisler's place, Carter, a new man on the squad last year. Warren, the regular right tackle, is an experienced player, who will again be able to play. Talbot and Arnold, both substitutes of proven worth, should have a close race for the other tackle position. Two veterans, Cooney and Pendleton, are available for the guards, and Captain Ketcham, the most brilliant player on the team last year, will strengthen the line at centre.

In the backfield as quarterbacks Yale will have two "Y" men eligible, Wheeler and Cornell. All three regular halfbacks, Spaiding, Flynu, and Philbin will be unable to play again and an entirely new combination will have to be formed. Pumpelly, who was Yale's most effective ground-gainer in the Harvard game, will undoubtedly be one of the halfbacks. Markle and Loftus, both "Y" men, are strong candidates for the other back field position. The Yale team is fortunate in having a wealth of experienced substitutes who are capable of filling in the vacancies. The line promises to be strong, but real difficulty will lie in developing a strong offence.

Outlook at Princeton.

Princeton will be the heaviest loser by graduation, seven letter men leaving this year, including Captain Pendleton, halfback; Andrews, Bluethenthal, centre; Dunlap, end; Logan, guard; Penfield, tackle; and Wight, end. DeWitt, too, will be unable to play again, being disqualified under the three-year rule. However, Coach Fitzpatrick has expressed his opinion that prospects are brighter this year than last. Eight letter men will return, two in the line and six in the backfield. Of the line-men returning are Shenk and Phillips, who distinguished themselves last year; E. Trenkman, Ballin, W. Swart, Longstreth, and I. Swart, who will be the logical candidate for centre. Princeton also has a number of men of varsity, Calibre who were ineligible last year, namely Hammond, Boland, Larson and Pope. These men ought to show up well next year. From the freshman team particularly good material will be available for the ends. Brown and Lamberton are players capable of filling Dunlap's and Wight's places. Glick, the freshman quarterback; Semmens and Love, tackles; Heyniger, guard; and Shea, a halfback, are also promising men from the 1916 team.

Situation at Dartmouth.

Dartmouth will lose four members of last season's team by graduation: Bennett, guard; Gibson, centre; Barends, end; and Morey, halfback. Engelhorn, who recently resigned the captaincy, will also be ineligible under the three-year rule. This leaves Dartmouth with six veterans to form the nucleus of next year's team, three of whom are backfield players. The offence is thus left practically intact, Morey's position being the only one to be filled. Murdock will probably be the selection for the vacancy. The line, however, will be left with only three of the seven men, Estep at tackle, Dunbar at guard, and Hogsett at end. The loss of Engelhorn, Bennett and Gibson will make it a difficult matter to build up a line of the strength of lest year's combination. Rogers and Hickox are two heavy men who will probably fill two of the places. For Barends's place at end there are a number of likely substitutes from last year's team, the most promising being Loudon, Lafferty and Rector. The success of the team will depend almost entirely upon the developing of good material for the line
