A Desperately Contested Annual
Football Game Goes to Blue
Eleven by Score of Six--,.
teen to Nothing.
Yale Defense Was Too Strong for
the Crimson and Held
0 at Critical Times.
FORTY THOUSAND SEE GAME
l!Arvard;KMatlljr Carries the
Hull to Yale Goal Line,
but Is I'nuble to Make
Cambridge, Maw., Nov. 21. Harvard
strusnled bravely against Yale today
In tht-ir atinuAl football match, but was
defeated, t& to 0, principally because
her offense weakened and Yale's de
ffiwe grew stronger as the crlnwon
plftyeis got within striking distance of
the Yale goal.
Nearly 40,000 person watched the
game, and, while it was not as spec
tmulur as that between Yale and
I'i'Imeloii a' week ago, better football
was played; and for the first half and
for seven ml nut In the second half
the score woe ijulte small enoughh to
make the result' uncertain. In fact.
ftftr Harvard had shown sufficient
epeed to Ret twice 'nitlde Yale'a five
yard line In the first half, her support
ers were well nigh convinced the team
would not only score, but win the game
Yale'a defense proved loo strong, how
ever, and, backed up by 15,000 voices,
that yelled " hold 'em! hold 'em!" the
blue line stood firm beneath it own
goal bar, twice capturing the ball there
on downs and In the third Instance
Inking advantage of a fumble by Har
vard players. In the second half Hur
vard got within six Inch'- of the Yale
goal and could not score.
The defeat, under these cjrcunistnn
ces, was exceedingly bitter for the
crimson. The fast play of the team
beyond the Yale 10 and 15-yard lines
enthused the Harvard supporters and
proved to be one feature of the game
There was some fumbling and several
blocked kicks, one of the Yale scores
being directly due to the latter. There
were several end runs for IS and 25
yards, but as a rule the play, especially
so far ns Harvard was concerned, was
a series of fierce line plunges for short
g:ilns of one, two and three yards.
The kicking was below average, espec
tally on Harvard's part, and was a
great disappointment to the crimson

Councilmen Will Not Vote to Ex
pend $7000 on Building
Worth Only $2000.
The probable outcome of the coun
cil's atepa looking to the conwruction
of a new city hall has occupied public
attention of lare, ana It ljretty gen
erally believed that the negotiations
will be carried to a auoccssful issue.
Some objection has been waged be
cause It will be necessary for the city
to erect an engine house as well as a
city hall. It transpires that the city
can, secure the necessary site for an
engine house for 31250, while the build
Ing will cost only about 31000. This
would leave a balance of $$375 for the
city hall If the Taylor property, cost
Ing $3500, is purchased. The members
of the council realise that it will be
neceBBary to expend some money other
than that which will be netted by sale
of the present site and building, but It
is felt that the exigencies of the oc
casion demand it. The present build
Ing is estimated to be worth about $2000
while to put It In shape would entail
an outlay of about $7000. Few council-
men are willing to expend 37000 on a
32000 building. However, the present
structure must soon be repaired if the
city Is to continue to occupy it, for
thdre Is no vault for the city' valuable
paper and the jail la about ready to
fall Into the river below. It 1 up to
the council either to build a new hall
or repair the present structure. Be
cause of the unanimous sentiment
among members of the council that re'
pairs to '.he present building would be
Inadvisable, It 1 likely that the new
hall will be built.

a few remained asleep. All at once the

men Into the building. The majority
of those who entered never again saw
the outside world. Those who strove
for the door were In the wildest sort of
panic. When one man got ahead of
another, the other pulled him back.
They fought, bit and klcked.and among
those who escaped there are many who

went. back for their trunks succeeded
In getting out again. In the ruins this
