FIRST TEST OF NEW LINE-UP

IMPROVED UNIVERSITY TEAM MEETS BROWN IN STADIUM AT 2 O'CLOCK.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University football team will face Brown in the Stadium this afternoon at 2 o'clock. The game will be of great importance in determining the power and ability of the University's renovated lineup. In the Princeton game, the team did not show up as well as was expected. There was punch lacking, and at times the defense was dangerously impotent. Something was lacking in the team as a whole, not in its individual members. Moreover, Bradlee showed himself almost indispensable by the phenomenal brilliancy of his offensive playing. This, together with Cowen's weakness at guard, Storer's superiority as a tackle rather than an end, Gilman's adaptability, and Hardwick's experience at the wing position, are the reasons for the shift. Today's contest, the first real try- out of the new order, will spell its success or failure.

Changes Not Radical.

The change is not so radical as it appears. The only real differences between today's line-up and that of the Prince- ton game is the appearance of Hardwick at end, and the assurance to Bradlee of a place in the backfield. Hitchcock is at his best at left guard, while Stover merely returns to a position in which he has repeatedly demonstrated his capabilities. Gilman should not feel at all strange at left tackle, where he will find ample opportunity to use all of his speed and aggressiveness. On paper, the eleven certainly looks stronger than hitherto; the line has lost 3 pounds in weight, now averaging 180, but to offset this slight decrease has gained somewhat in experience. The backfield is much stronger defensively, and should still maintain by far the greater part of its slashing at- tack in Brickley and Mahan. If things go well today, the shift will be permanent; if they do not further changes are likely to occur.

Trumbull, though ready for practice next week, will not play today. Both he and Logan will journey to New Haven to gather pointers from the Yale-Prince- ton game. Nearly all of the men are now in the best of condition, though many of them may be withdrawn early to be saved for the Yale contest. The University will play a safe game, and will open up few, if any, of the plays it12S. K. Mitchell, Brown, Centre.
