TIGER PROSPECTS BRILLIANT

NAVY NOW ON PRINCETON ELEVEN SCHEDULE--30 GAMES FOR BASEBALL TEAM.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Abundant material and great enthusiasm for every branch of sport, major and minor, is the report from the authorities at Princeton. Although the interest in minor sports now occupies the attention of most of the men, the athletic directors have found time to give consideration to plans for the major sports of the coming year, and preparations are well under way to turn out in 1920 the best teams in football, track, and baseball, and the fastest crew that Princeton has seen in many years.

Football Veterans Available.

Prospects for major sports are very promising. In football there will be a wealth of material from which to build a strong Tiger gridiron squad. A large number of this year's squad will be back, including Baker, Bibler, Callahan, Davis, Garrity, Keck, Lourie, Murrey, Parisette, Scheerer, and Wittmer, all of whom are letter men. The ranks of next year's eleven will be further strengthend by the addition of the undefeated 1923 men.

The Princeton gridiron schedule includes four new teams. Colgate has been dropped because of conflicting dates, and the Navy will come to Princeton in its place. The others of the new teams are from the South: Washington and Lee, Maryland State, and West Virginia. The placing of the Navy on the schedule marks a new departure in Princeton football, as the arrangement calls for alternate games at Princeton and Annapolis. Thus in 1921, Princeton will play two games away from home, one at New Haven and one at Annapolis. As in 1919, there will be a total of seven games. The schedule follows:

October 2, Swarthmore; 9, Maryland State; 16, Washington and Lee; 23, Navy; 30, West Virginia; November 6, Harvard at Cambridge; 13, Yale.

Winter Track Underway.

Training for the winter and spring track meets has already started with all of last year's University team with the exception of two members out for positions. The addition of members of the 1922 team will enable Coach Fitzpatrick to put out one of the strongest aggregations of track men representing Princeton in recent years. The indoor track schedule for the Tigers includes a series of eight meets.

Nine's Season Opens March 27.

The Princeton baseball season will open on March 27. The schedule, which has not yet been ratified, will include 29 or 30 games, a much longer season than last year's. There are fourteen letter men, several ex-service men, and a number of promising candidates from the 1922 team who will help make the Tiger nine a formidable opponent for any team on its schedule. The southern trip of the team this year will include no more than three or four games, as the brief Easter vacation will prevent the nine from taking any extended tour.

Crew Starts in March.

Rowing will not start at Princeton for the spring season until the middle of March. A tentative schedule includes races with Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Pennsylvania, Cornell and probably the Navy crews. The dates for these races have not yet been decided.
