Princeton Works Hard,

The Tiger squad will leave for the
Windy City this afternoon after hav-
ing indulged in three practice ses-
sions this week. New plays were
taught the men and it is certain that
nothing will be held under cover dur-
ing the game.
Just who will pilot the Princeton
team is undecided as yet. Bergen and
Gorman were both used in practice
and a slight edge appears in Gorman's
favor. Beattie, a husky back, was un-
covered in the Maryland game and
will undoubtedly be used against the
Maroons for his line smashing power.
A tentative lineup would probably be
something like this Gray and Tillson,
ends; Treat and Baker, tackles; Dick-
enson and Snively, guards; Alford,
center; Gorman, quarter; Cleaves,
fullback; Beattie and Caldwell, half-
backs. Twenty-five men will make
the trip but Coach Roper has not giv-
en out a definite lineup.
