WILLIAM AND MARY OPPOSES UNIVERSITY

Replaces Cheek at Quarterback--Sayles and Adie Also on Sidelines--Game Will Start at 2 O'clock

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The football teams of the two oldest colleges in America clash this afternoon at two o'clock on Soldiers Field. The William and Mary eleven, expected to show a dangerous forward passing attack, may give Harvard's heavier team much to think about before the game is over.

Ten veterans will be on the team that faces the Crimson, while for Harvard five of the players are starting a game for the first time this season.

E. H. Bradford and Doherty, ends, Taylor, McGlone and Home are the Crimson warriors who will respond to the opening whistle for the first time this year. On the sidelines this afternoon will be Captain Cheek, whose gallant leadership kept Harvard fighting gamely against the Dartmouth avalanche. Cheek's bad leg prevented him from running much with the ball last Saturday and he has abstained from scrimmage all this week.

McGlone is slated to replace Cheek today, and Moseley is likely to see considerable action in the pilot's position. These two players have been taking turns all this week at calling signals for Team A. Both have advanced ahead of Stafford, starter of the Yale game last fall and first string substitute until a fortnight ago.

Regular Ends Out

Adie and Sayles, ends who started the Dartmouth game, are not slated to appear today. Sayles, whose work last Saturday was one of the bright spots from a Harvard standpoint, is receiving a merited rest. His place is being filled by Doherty, former halfback, who, like Sayles, was transformed into a wingman this fall. E. H. Bradford played a good game against Dartmouth and will hold down the right end position.

Taylor, starting at tackle today, has played a considerable amount this fall and displaces Lindner, a veteran who has started every game this year. The other new man in the line-up is Howe, who takes the place of Miller.

Harvard's defence against forward passes is likely to be thoroughly tested this afternoon. The Crimson had been weak in this department of the game and unless the defence has improved William and Mary may score. The Indians, as the visitors are called, possess in their Japanese quarterback, Matsu, a brilliant passer whose tosses scared Annapolis a month ago and who may prove a real thorn in the side of the University eleven today.
