OUR FOOTBALL BOY8 OR XANI~ATTAB FIRLB
NEW YORK CITY Y. DI. C. A. TEAEI.
The foot-ball season of 1895 closed in a blaze
of glory on Tbanksgiving Day. ‘1 he st,rong
New York Y. M. C. A. team strengthened by
four players from the Crescent Athletic Club,
fell before our boys in a well played game by
a score of 16 to 4. Manhattan Field was the
scene of the conflict.
The Y. M. C. A. kicked off and th’e Indians
soon took the ball down the Geld for a touch-
down and goal. This was repeated, but the Y.
hf. C. A. fought bard and made us work to
score. On their 3rd kick-off, Metoxen caught
the ball, but was tackled hard after a short
run. In falling, his sore knee was wrenched
and he fumbled, a New Yorker securing the
ball. By mass plays, which several times
barely gained them the necessary five yards,
they got the ball over for a touchdown, but
could not kidk the goal.
Time was soon after called. In the second
half, we secured one touch-down, but.the try
at goal failed. Jamison’s run of 25 yards on a
cries-cross was a feature. No more scoring
was done in tbis half and the game ended with
the score standing 16 to 4 in our favor. The
ground was very soft and prevented good run-
ning. On a dry ground, the score would pro-
bably have been larger. New York could not
get around our ends, the runner always being
thrown for a loss, and so they contented them-
selves with short gains on mass plays at the
We played a more open game and worked
the end and line equally well for good
gains. As might be expected, the game was
a clean and gentlemanly one. We probably
lost one touchdown on what maoy thought
a wrong decision of the referee,rbut it was un-
intentional. At the close of the game, our
boys were wildly applauded by the spectators.
The New York papers spoke well of us, only
one giviag a dime novel account in which
“war paint,r scalps, tomahawks, flre water,
thumb chewing, cuss words,” etc., predomi-
nated, but such things only existed in the im-
agination of the writer, for a cleaner game
could hardly have been played, and mauy
were disappointed at the civilized appearance
of our boys.
The Red Mm will say:
We could fill several columns with compli-
mentary notices of the fine playing of our
team, but space forbids. The newspapers
have been generous in their accounts, quite a
number being illustrated. Cuts of the team
have appeared in the Chicago Inler-Ocean,
Xew York Tribune, Pittsburg Bulletin and
Harp&e Round Table. An article by Capt.
Bemus Pierce with cut of himself, was print-
ed in the Philadelphia Erects. When we re-
member that we started with but six old play-
ers, the others being subs or altogether new,
our record of four games won and four lost is
a good one. When we consider too, the very
little coaching received, it appears still better.
But we are especially proud of the fact tbat
our boys played a clean, gentlemanly game
throughout, and showed themselves men of
grit, endurance, self-control and brains under
the trying conditions of a foot-ball game.
The Indian is not dead yet, but alive and able
to compete with the world, if allowed to use
his God-given faculties. “A fair field and ~10
favor” is all he asks, and he will render a good
account of himself, whether in business. mu-
sic, art, education or athletics. W. R. ‘2.

The drive of an hour and a half, by way of

delightful and interesting one, giviug, as it
did, a view of the most magnificent dwellings
and the greater part, of Central Park. On our
way we passed Dr. Parkhurst of whom we had
read EO much.
The game was called at 2:30 in the pres-
ence of about &NO people, about 3000 of whom
viewed the game free from a very high via-
duct just south of the grouuds. Our game,
as is always the case, was entirely void of all
objectionable features--the highest compli-
mentary remarks for our boys’ playing and
gentlemanly conduct beiug heard on all sides.
The game over, we were again conveyed to
the Association rooms where shower baths,
etc., were indulged in. Then followed a light
supper at the hotel.
Seven-thirty that evening again found us at
the Y. M. C. A. We attended the prayer

Uelos spoke feelingly of hia interest in
Y. M. C. a. York. He said he had been urged to stop playmg foot-bail
as it was not proper
for him to be a member of the Y. bt. C. A.

how to control myself as I nerer cotid before.
It has strengthened me physically and so
helped me in my wnrk for God. We do not
put offour Christianity when we go to the
foot-ball field. We play not only for the good
benefits of the game to us as individuals, but
for the advancement and glory of our school.”
Wm. Leighton’s remarka were well re-
ceived. His word8 were to the effect that Iu-
dians were the same as other people and
should have the same opportunities.

remarked Lhat their Indian friends by their

gotten, that if the Y. M. C. A. team played
with t,he same spirit as the Indian team then
foot-ball would not only be unobjectionable,
but a power for good.

gaged iu Aspoci&ion work, gave the closing
remarks. He said that in the early days of

they would have expected every one to go td
perdition. We have advanced but we are none
the less conservative. That foot-ball can be
played by Godly men has been shown by our
Indian friends to-day and we cau not fail to-
profil by their example.
At. 12:30 our boys retired for a well earned
rest. Early Friday morning after checking
our baggage, we called upon Mr. Wasson of
the AYeru yorX_ Tribune, who was present at
our Commencement last.February. Through
his kindness and by him personally_ we were

great paper and were given mementos run
off by their wonderful t,ype-setting machines.
Our next visit was to the great Brooklyn
bridge, over which we walked.
On our return, we visited one of the largest
and most importaut engine and truck houses
of the New York Fire Department. Here the
horses were turned out atid hitched up for us,
and every detail of the great work of life and
property- saving and the various apparatus
used fully explained to us. Our next visit
was to the great operating rooms and offiees
of the Western Union Telegraph Company.

The orations, “Our Development a Necessi- ty” by Delos Lonewolf, and
‘>The Indian a Man” by Elmer Simon, were slirring appeals
for the red man und lhe eloquence and pathos of the speeches touched
the hearts of the audi ence, which was generous in applause.
James Flaooerg’s cornet solo, “My Old Kentucky Home,” with its difficult
vari-ations, was so enthusiastically received that,
although no encores was the rule, the baud had to give the popular
L’lnclian War Dauce.” Gen. Howard, in well chosen words of ad-
vice, presented the diplomas to the 25 graduates. t He said that white
men were not all the same. The 1ndia.n had his friends arl
well as his enemies, and he numbered himself with the former. His appeal
to the graduates not to slight their parents, but to try to elevate them
made a deep impressiou. Pennsylvania’s governor, Daniel H. Hastings, followed
in a stir&g speech, comparing the times when Red and White, Blue and
Gray met in deadly conflict on these grouuds and the present when they
came together as friend and brothers. .

| The Seventeenth Anniversary Of the Birth of our school.
As is our yearly custom on the evening of the 6th of October, the pupils,
teachers, offcers, and a few from the outside congregated
in Assembly Hall on last Tuesday evening to celebrate the anniversary
of Carlisle’s birth
as a school.
It was on the 6th of October, 1879 at one o’clock in the
morning that Capt. Pratt arrived from Dakota with 82 Sioux boys and
girls, only one of whom was dressed in the clothes of civlization;
and he was the inter-preter. Capt. Pratt said that at least 500 of
the inhabitants of Carlisle were at the train to meet them at that
midnight hour. The program for the evening was entirely inform-al and unprepared.
Alex Upshaw read a chapter from the Bible and the school
joined in singing “America." Then Howard Gansworth led in prayer.
thanked God for the present pleasant sur-roundings of the pupils here
gathered, and prayed earnestly that the money spent on’ the
Indian boys and girls at Carlisle would not be money wasted. He asked
that the good people around us be led to see that the Indians have
capabilities, but he would haveus all realize that education and training
alone are not all to be desired. We must have Christian hearts.
Dennison Wheelock with his cornet band then brought out
a new and entirely origitial composition-"From Savagery into Civilization”
in which the sounds produced led up from the wild tom tom, through curious
and intricate twists and turns to the sweet and classic strains of civilized
horns. It was very appropriate for the occasion and was highly appreciated
by the audience.
Mr. Standing being the oldest member of the present faculty
and here from almost the beginning was called upon. Owing to our
limited space we can give but a brief outline of the address. Mr.
Standing throught it was highly proper to commemorate the day for the edification
of the new pupils and members of the faculty. The choir, nnder the. l&idership.,
of &Jrs: Berry, then rendered “Great is th.d Lp&” with telling
e&r%. Miss perit’s poem whidh was read at-our first annlverssry and
corn; posed for .that occesl’oou tvas again read -by Minnie Findley, changilig
the number of years to fit the present ti_&. Abe Somers, Delos Lonewolf
and Miss Burgess made brief addresses. Miss Cutter said in part after showing
by comparison the growth of the school: “What you popileaf to-day must
do is to gray in character. Try to do your work so well to be so cheerful
and obedient, that evergoue will be glad that you are here.: In that way
8011 cau help Cap&. Pratt and all who ivork with him.”
