WEST POINT, N.Y., Nov. 16. — The Army had a harder time winning from Tufts to-day than the score indicates. The Cadets were returned the winners by a 15 to 6 score, but in the first two periods were outplayed by the Tufts team. Devore had his hands full with O’Donnell, who got through several times and spoiled Army plays behind the soldiers’ line.

WEST POINT, N.Y., Nov. 23. — The Army defeated Syracuse here to-day in easy fashion, winning by a score of 23 to 7.

The ball rolled over the Army goal line and Farber fell on it, Castle kicked the goal.
