To Muse and Amuse By SPORTS EDITOR Seven Conference Gnmes Seven more Important western interscholastic conference football teams are on the card for the coming weekend. But the games will be divided over two days, all because of the Armistice day holiday. Three games are booked Saturday, Nov. 9. And on Monday, Nov. 11 four more pairings are announced. ; The Saturday games, Altoona at Johnstown, Clearfleld at State College and Jersey Shore at Lock Haven, am three big games. They're annual pair- Ings of many years' standing. On Armistice day Tyrone-Hollidaysburg resume their annual war, this game formerly being a Turkey day scrap. And on the same holiday Lewistown is at Bellefonte, Mount Union at Portage and Cresson at Huntingdon. Altoona fans will be Interested in seeing just what Clearfleld, Lock Haven, Bellefonte, Hollidaysburg can do in these games. Happy at Hertford There is a football team down Bed-, ford way that is worthy of plenty of real praise. It is the Bedford High team, In charge of Coach Hubicsak, a Gettysburg product. Bedford has six straight victories for the season and not a single opponent has scored on the team. Four more games remain, with the team looking forward to hard games against Windber and Tyrone. Both are conference battles. Bedford now has three conference victories and two more will just about put the team on the top rung, provided Altoona does some tobogganing. EVen If Bedford doesn't get the championship cup, the team wants that second place trophy. And all Bedford town and county Is lending a hand to support the team. Says the Bedford Hi-Lites, the newspaper of the school: "In previous years our football team was backed by very few people other than the school. But this year tho spirit seems to be running high, everybody taking an interest. "Many of our town people are anx- ious to see and know how our boys are being trained and visit the athletiu field every afternoon to find out. This shows that the town Is interested In what tho High school Is actually doing. Let's keep it up! "We're in second place now. Are we going to keep it like this? Nay! We are going to pass Altoona." Those Comparative Scores Here's one of those peculiar things in football, and It doesn't take much figuring to prove that comparative scores in the grid game are very deceiving: Reploglo High of New Enterprise met Roosevelt Junior High, winning 7-0. This same Replogle team went to Bedford and lost only 12-0. Next in order came Wllliamsburg " High, and the Papertown lost 18-0. And Replogle High lost 19-6 to Hollidaysburg, a team that Bedford beat 6-0. Now according to the dope Bedford High is only 19 points better than Roosevelt Junior High of Altoona. But that's impossible, because Bedford is a senior High and an undefeated one, and Roosevelt is just a junior High, and not even in Bedford's class. The "funny stuff" in the scoring comes about due to Bedford's sending a second team against New Enterprise. That explains everything. Snaps Is Praised Snaps Emanuel, and his success with the 1929 football material at Altoona High, Is worth a page line in the Harrisburg Telegraph, edited by Wellington Jones, the grand old man of sport in central Pennsylvania. In an issue last week Emanuel's fine showing with Altoona -High is commented upon under the head "Former Tech Star Is Making Good as Athletic Coach." The article In part follows: "If John Harris High school comes through and Altoona Is conference leader in the western end of the P. 1. A. A., it is going to be an interesting battle. "Snaps" Emanuel is back at Altoona. He is a former Tech and Gettysburg star. In and about Altoona Coach Emanuel is getting much credit for the good work to date. Altoona High has a bunch of good coaches. (By United Press.) NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 4.— Yale's football squad was given a vacation today as a reward for Saturday's victory over Dartmoulh.

NEW YORK, Nov. 4.—A bushel fulj of mites of the ring will be dumped on the canvassed ring floor of Madison Square Garden Monday evening and after the fuss of unscrambling the mess in completed the outstanding contender for the flyweight title will be produced to view. Tom McArdle has gathered together eight of the best -flyweights in the world and if Frankle Genaro, Willlie La Morte, Phil Tobias and speedy Dado enter the lists later-.on the winner -of the tourney -cannot help but gain recognition as the world's champion. Genaro Is in England, Tobias was not considered and Dado is ou.t with a trick shoulder. La Morte Is confined to performing in his home state, New Jersey. La Morte is credited with a decision over Izzy Schwartz, the title holder In this state. If Eugene Huat, the European champion, whips Izzy more decisively than Willie did, the latter's claims to the title will not be worth much, Willie Davies, a real good boxer, would be selected to beat the field. But Willie is an In and outer and cannot be depended upon to perform as well as he can with any degree of consistency. He faces Black bill and should win if he has one of his good nights. The dark horse of the field Is Midget Wolgast. The Philadelphian is some scrapper and has been unfortunately paired with the veteran Johnny McCoy. The latter is one of, the real veterans of the ring and knows every trick there is. Wolgast may have his trouble scoring over the wily bald old. stager of the ring game. Ruby dark cloud Bradley meets a busy little battler in Ernie Peters. Bradley has had his day and does not work as smoothly as he used to. Not so long ago dark cloud was Ipoked upon as New England flyweight champion but was beaten off by some youngsters so that his stock has taken a big drop. Peters is In just about the same boat with Bradley. For this reason a lively scrap Is in order. NOTRE DAME LOOMS AS NATIONAL CHAMPIONS NEW YORK, Nov. 4.—Dartmouth, Southern California and Illinois were missing from the list of sectional football leaders today as a result of the outstanding upsets of . the week-end. Notre Dame loomed as a likely national champion, ) The Rockne coached Irish are the one team In the country which tias met outstanding opponents on every Saturday of the present season and is still undefeated. If they continue unbeaten and' add Drake, Southern California, Northwestern and the Army to their list of victims—already Including Indiana, Navy, Wisconsin, Carnegie Tech and Georgia Tech—it will be unnecessary to look further for a national, champion. Dartmouth's defeat by Yale established the Elis as the outstanding eastern team of the season, despite an early 'season defeat at the hands of Georgia. Two undefeated teams, Pitt and Cornell, dispute Yale's honors, but Pitt has played no strong sectional opponent, having scored its only important victories against .West Virginia, Nebraska and Ohio. Cornell's only two hard games were with Princeton and Columbia and in both cases the Ithacans were pressed to win. DEFEAT COSTLY. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 4.—Temple university's 13 to 0 defeat at the hands of Bucknell here Saturday was costly for the Owl eleven, '"Swede" Hansen, one of Coach Heinle Miller's star backs, was rendered hors-de- combat for at least two weeks.
