Tiger, Proud of Eli Scalp, Hopes To Avenge Crimson's Victory

University's Second Forward Line Is But Slightly Inferior To First


In what promises to be one of the hottest conflict of the year, the University hockey team will oppose the Tiger sextet on the Boston Arena ice tonight at 8.15 o'clock. Princeton has already beaten Yale, and as the University skaters have downed the six from Nassau, the big three championship may well hinge on the outcome of tonight's battle.

The Princeton squad arrived yesterday morning at 8 o'clock, having taken the midnight train from New York. After a late breakfast at the Lenox, Coach Ramsey sent his men through an hour's scrimmage at the Arena, the Princeton mentor announcing his line-up and expressing himself as satisfied with the team's condition. The workout yesterday afternoon consisted of offensive and defensive drill, topped off by a short scrimmage which found Teams A and B opposing each other. There was no scoring, the second team's better team work holding the superior speed of the Team A players well in check.

Tigers Beaten Seven Times

Neither the University nor the Princeton team was conceded a chance at the intercollegiate hockey championship when the season opened this fall, but both the local skaters and the Nassau team have shown such improvement since the start of the season, that the hockey crown now depends largely on the outcome of tonight's tussle.

Coach Ramsey has followed the policy of sending his charges against teams outside of their class in the hope that the experience gained thereby would later result in victories against the Tiger's chief foes.

To date Princeton has lost seven games while winning four. The Tigers opened against the strong St. Nick's, losing this encounter and the next two, one against the Royal Military Academy, and the other against the strong University of Montreal's sextet.

Ramsey's Second Year as Coach

Following this, the Tiger downed the Nichols' Club of Buffalo, and then lost to the Sons of Ireland, amateur champions of Quebec, and the Queens University team, conquerors of Williams.

In their next tilt, the Nassau warriors led the Harvard six for two periods, only to lose, 4--3, in an exciting overtime game. Since this setback, the Tigers have again resumed their policy of gaining experience by the use of practice games. Incidentally, Yale was taken into Camp, and following this, the Tigers lost for the second time to the St. Nick's, this time by the count of $ 4. The New York Athletic Club has been downed 4 $ in an overtime game, and Merristown furnished the Princeton skaters with a practice session, the Tigers winning, 7-2.

Last Year the Princeton hockeyists, competing for the first year under Coach Ramsey's fuselage, finished at the bottom of the big three ranking. With the former Olympic player's methods being more thoroughly mastered by the Tiger the Princetonian are now threatening for the crown held by the Eli ice men.

In Harding, brother of the Crimson spare, the Tigers have a capable pivot man, who promises to keep both Chase and Scott, University centers, busy tonight. Harding was captain of the Princeton Freshmen last year, and scored against Yale in Princeton's surprising defeat of the Elis, two weeks ago.

Pitman, the Nassau left wing, has just returned from a siege of illness. He is known best for his marvelous stick work, and should his endurance be up to par, the Nassau offense will be even more threatening than in the first Harvard-Princeton clash.

The Princeton right wing, Davis, is probably the best all-around player on the invader's forces. He is the Tiger's scoring ace, and his two goals against Yale were largely instrumental in gaining the verdict for the Orange and Black.

Captain Wilkinson of the Tigers is scheduled to start at one of the outer defense posts, but this versatile player has played every position except goal, and his rushes tonight will be closely followed by the Crimson defense.

Hallock, Wilkinson's defense mate, is the fastest skater among the invaders. In addition, he is clever with his stick, and a considerable factor in both the offensive and defensive schemes of Coach Ramsey.

Colebrook will guard the Tiger lair, and if his recent form is no mere flash in the pan, he will be a hard man to pass.

The Crimson's chief advantage lies in their strong reserve material, the second string forwards of Harvard being only slightly less potent than Coach Bigelow's starters. There is little to chose between the Team A forwards, Chase, Gross, and Hamlen, and their relief's, Scott, Harding, and Zarakov.

De Lamater is the most dependable of the Tiger spares, but Casey and Grange are far below the ranking players in all but team work.

For defensive reserves, Coach Bigelaw has Clark and Howe, while Princeton will call on Charles and Martin to relieve its tired defenders. Charles, though an accurate shot, whose specialty is masked shots from outside the defense, is hardly as valuable a guard as Clark and Howe. In defense, therefore, the Tigers are also below the Crimson in reserve strength.

Captain Cummings should hold his own with Colebrook, in front of the cage, and goal tending of classic proportions seems to be in store for the spectators tonight
