Crimson Men Are Replacing
Snobs by Democratic Lead
ers in Every Class.
(Journal special SerTlce )
Boston, Dec. 1. Lortn - Deland, the
Harvard tactician who Invented the fly
ing wedge. In an Interview scores the
Crimson coaches and accuses them of
treachery toward each other.
"I believe that they have tried to cut
each other'a throats and fell;" he says,
"and would rather see the eleven de
feated than have Washington get any
glory out of It.
"This condition is to' be deplored.
I'ntil we can get rid of these traitors
we must expect defeat by Tale.
"Harvard needa a Walter Camp on
man In supreme authority to have abso
lute chsrge. BUI field will probably be
next head ooach. Wrtghtlngtbn haa been
repudiated by all the" newspapers.
"Hsrvard students are up In arms. All
classes have elected democratic officers,
and have turned snobs out right and left.
" "Harvard must be democratic In or
der to win' Is the cry. and the students
are-cleanlng out the aristocrats with a
vengeance. The Issue Is clearly drawn
between the 'muckers' and the society
"There Is a temporary lull In the
negro Incident, although Harvard Is
stirred as never before. All the news
pa pera are devoting columns of space to
the controversy and are demanding a
revolution In methods."
"Hurley will almost surely be elected
captain, to succeed himself. Hurley and
Reld are a strong combination, the stu
dents believe.
"Held Is a msn of force and character,
with backbone enough to turn down the
snobs and. choose only ths eleven best
men In college.
"Both the democrats and the aristo
crats are working night and day pulling
all wlrea to control the situation.
"Harvard Is sick and tired of ex
cuses over defeats. Stranger things
have happened than that Yost will be
ailed, and all differences snd quarrela
between coachea ended. . Internal dla
senslona have made success impossible;
all dead coaching material will "ba
cleared out."

New Haven, Conn.. Dec. 3. "Perhaps

Mutthewa, the colored end, In the game
agnlnst the Blue. The story was sent
out widely ft "in Boston and Is falae on

"Yale has faced Matthews for two
years, when he waa a Harvard shortstop
and expects to play against him on the
diamond next spring. The story that
hss also gone out from Boston, declar
ing that Yale players tried to 'do up'
Matthews last Saturday, la also untrue.
The facta are that while Randall, a

could send no end plays that made way

James J.
Lsst week a story to ths effect that
Jim Jeffries had changed his mind about
drawing the color line and that hs would
meet Jack Johnson, the colorsd hsavy
welght champion, was telegraphed from
San Francisco, but Jeff denied It next
dsy. Lovers of pugilism, as a rule,
think Jeffries ought to meet Johnson,
and some day hs may do so, but the
chances Just st present are anything but
bright. If Jeffries meets Johnson the
battle will be fought simply because the
huge champion realises that tua ileUl
painfully void of men flt to mast him
also bemuse the ready money will be
highly pleasing to the Jeffries ex
chequer. For a year or more Jeff has
steadily refused all overtures for a
match with Johnson, sllegtng thst he
drew the color line when It cams to
lighting for a championship title.
Jeff always got sway with this llns nf
talk, too, for a coupls of reasons that
many people believed the same thing,
and that nobody could seriously count
Johnson as a flt adversary for the king.

"Big Jim" gives the following version
of the accident. He was stalking a
