NAVY TO MEET YALE
This Saturday the Naval Academy
football team will play Yale in Baltimore,
Md. This game will be Navy's
first major game of the season · This
year Yale has shown decided strength
in all departments of the game. This
past week ~ heir defensive strength

end and captain, Kelly, has been outstanding
on snaring touchdown passes;
the stellar punting of Colwell
has stood out all season; and Ewart

However, avy has shown considerable
strength herself in her three
starts of the season. Schmit and Ingram
have been consistent yardage
gainers for the Navy football team all

teams are evenly matched but give
Yale a slight edge in the backfield.
Both teams will start the game with
a clean slate, Yale having defeated
Cornell 23- 0 and Penn. 7- 0; whereas,
Navy has defeated William and Mary,
Davidson, and Virginia. Last year
Yale defeated the Midshipmen 7- 6 on
the same field.
