Princeton's Quarterback Hits Dartmouth as 'Dirty'

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Princeton and Dartmouth continued yesterday to snipe sharply at each other on the undergraduate level about alleged roughness in last Saturday's football game, but officials kept their remarks guarded.

George Stevens, Princeton's quarterback, was quoted last night by the Daily Princetonian, undergraduate newspaper, as saying. "Dartmouth was out to get" the Tigers' talented Dick Kazmaier. Kazmaier ultimately left the field with a fractured nose and a concussion.

"Kaz was being roughed up on just about every play in the first quarter by Dartmouth's number 80 (end Don Myert."

Frank McPhee, defensive end for Princeton, seconded Stevens' opinion, remarking. "I am completely disgusted with the whole ball game and with the Dartmouth brand of football."

It listed Dick Clasby and John Culver as victims of assaults of this ilk.

Clasby suffered considerale pummeling while playing against Dartmouth and once was clearly roughed by Myers, upon whom much of the blame for unsavory tactics has been laid.

Clasby said last night, however, that he didn't think with any degree of certainly that he was roughed up with a view to being knocked out of the game. He added that he was sure Culver suffered his broken collar bone through the natural circumstances of football.

Robert Godolphin, Dean of Princeton, said last night. "It is regrettable that last Saturday's Dartmouth - Princeton game has created an atmosphere of tension and misunderstanding. We are, of course, fully aware of the situation and naturally consider it a matter for careful thought. It seems to me that neither the best interests of the institutions concerned, nor of football, can be helped by any further statements at this time."

The fiercest exchange of charges came through the undergraduate papers of the colleges. Yesterday, the Princetonian stated editorially: "The issue involved is more than the issue of a specific football game.... It is the issue of fundamental decency and sportsmanship in athletics." Prior to its editorial, the Princetonian ran several columns attacking 'Dartmouth's play last Saturday and throughout the season
