Expert iiredietion was blown to
smithereens today when a rcjuvnrnt
ed Yale team vanquished n confident
Princeton cloven bv n scor-j of 13 to
7. Ynlo look tin; lead in the second
period niul two field goals by (liiern
sey, onl, to have it smashed away by
a Princeton touchdown n few minutes
later, tho half ending with the Tigers
abend by a single point. Princeton
lost the game at the very start of the
third period, when Tibbott muffed a
punt and Way, th Yale tackle,
scooped it up and made the remaining
twenty-five yards for the touchdowi
without hindrance. The Tigers play
ed desperately, but Yale stopped
nearly every forward pass. Just as
the game was closing Princeton, with
the ball on tho Eli's thirty-yard line,
tried a lateral pass, but bungled it so
badly that Ynlo recovered it and th'

BRITISH CAB NET
Minister Blamed for Inadequacy of
British Relief of Antwerp and Fail,
ure in Forcing Dardanelles Too
Much of n Braggart Who Doesn't
LONDON. Nov. 13. No figure iu
Pritiih politics has been the target
of more criticism since the war
rhrled than Winston Spencer
Churchill, -ho has just resigned from
the post of chniicclln' of the duchy
of Lancesler in the British cabinet
and i-. now about to join the army iu
Mr. Churchill assumed '.he least
important position iu the cnbinet,
that of the chancellorship of th '
duchy of Lancaster, when the coal
ition ministry was, formed lust .May
nfter liming held the impoitant post
of first lord of the admiralty.
Itlmmsl for Failures
Incidentally Mr. Churchill's change
of office did not reduce the flood of
criticism He will he -11 venrs oil
November 30, but according to his
critics ho docs not acquire discretion
Jtightly or wrongly, Churchill has
been blamed ns if solely responsible
for the inadequacy of the Hritish re
lief of Antwerp, u military movement
that brought litlln relief to tho Belg
ians hud ended with tho internment of
a large part of the Ilrilish marine ex
pedition in Holland. Similaily he
has had the hrun'l of J he public ecu
Miro for tho attempt to force the
Dardanelles without tho help of tho
army, n failure which up to dnte has
produced a Hritish casualty list of
approximately 100,000 men.
Churchill a Ilraggart
Possibly he would not thus be forc
ed to bear the full brunt of this dis
approval if he wore not addicted to
n rather boastful or over-confident
method of public advice. His proph
ecy early in the war that if the Ger
man ships did not conic out and fight
"we would dig them out of their holes
like rats"; nnd his prediction that if
Zeppelins name to England they would
be surrounded by "a swann of hor
nets," nro typical instances of this
form of oratory
Mr. Churchill intends o explain the
reason for hU resignation at the sil
ting of the house of commons Mon
day. According to the Times parlia
mentary correspondent. Mr. Churchill
will review tho war operation; of tho
admiralty during his term as first lord
and will justify the cxp"ditioiis to
Antwerp and the Dardanelles.

found my maid, who pleaded with me
to save hor. A cannon shot inter

and killed my maid.
"Boats wcro being lowered, all com
pletely filled. I sought to get into
them nnd was told theru was no more

saw a launch afloat. Tliis contained

ACT FOR PEACE
Wilson Approached by Von Brrn
storff, But Indications Arc Peace
Suggestions Will Have to Come
From Allies Also Before President
Acts Germans Want Pcaco.
By GILSON GARDNER.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13. From
sources usually udinblc I have it that
President Wilson has been npproach
cd by the (lermnn ambassador on tho
subject of mediation nnd a discussion
of terms of pnee. These efforts, I
iindorsland, have produced no defin
ite results. Tho indications nro Hint
pcrfoe suggestions will have to oomo
from the allies before President Wil
bon will move.
Since Count Von Hcrnstorff return
ed to Washington ho has called sev
eral times on Secretary Lansing and
an informal interchange has taken
plnco covering numerous subjects. It
is understood that tho German am
bassador hat) pointed out. among
'ither things, tho change which linn
taken plnco in tho German subinnriuo
cumpaign nnd an explanation has
been volunteered to tho effect that
this change is tho result of nn effort
by thn German government to avoid
further onuses of offenso to tho Unit
ud States nnd to keep tho good wilt
of our country. And further, that
this good will is to bo drawn upon in
the immediate future in the way of a
request for the good offices of tho
American government as an interme
diary to pence
That Geimany would like todisenss
terms of ponce In indicated in othor
ways by many inspired outgiving.
Some of these even nnmo tho terms
on which pence discussion would bo
welcomed, nnd it is notable that these
terms nro less extravagant than thoee
named six months ago. Helgium would
bo given up Only the return of part
of the overseas colonies is now ask
ed, nnd except for tho "indemnity"
from Great Hritnin, which is obvious
ly a condition put forward for trad
ing purposes, German terms aro now
practically a "call quits" proposition.
Boundaries would ho restored, except
Alsace nnd Lorraine, and Gormnny
would profit by her extension over
Poland and hor virtunl control of thu
Balkans nnd Turkey.
President Wilson is sufficiently in
touch with the British and French
ambassador? to know that these
lorms nro entirely unsatisfactory to
the nllios and that any efforts at me
diation bv him at this liinu would ho
Fight to tho Knd
In spite of tho discouraged mood
of the British 'it tho present time nnd
their wrangling over tho Asquith cab
inet, conviction in wtroug eeu iu
England that tho war uuut bo fought
to tho end. A declaration of the new
premier of Franco, M. Hriand, eor
roctly ovprosbcs the sentiment of that
nation. Thd alarm caused by tho
German drive into tho Balkans has
abated somewhat, nnd tho allies are
taking a calmer view of the outlook.
The grounds they find for encourage-
mont nro the reports from Gormnny
of new food restrictions imposed by
the govonimout, indicating a scarcity
of meat and fats. These nro attrib
