THE ALTOONA JTIRROR-TtJESDAV, NOVEMBER S, ALTOONA HIGH POINT TOTAL ASSURES 1929 Undefeated Record, With Victories Sure In Two Remaining Conference Decisions, Places Altoona Far Ahead of Other Entries. t'or the first time In the history nf football at Altonna High school, a team wearing the maroon anil while, has pracllcnlly clneheil I he western Interscholnnllc conference footlmll title. Altoona High hns the llWD record elnehed, not only In winning games but also according to the Intricate system of points us awarded In the Central P. J. A. conference. Two more conference games remain for Allonnn, the one with Johnatown on Saturday on the Point grounds, und one on Turkey day with Tyrone Hifjh, in thla city. Altoona should win both games.- Even With a defent In either game Altoona has the title cinched, both on Its record and on Its point total. But one thing remains in the way of Altuona's 1920 championship, however. That is the Wlllliimsport game. Wll- llamsport represents the eastern group. Altoona is In the west. But the two meets in Altoona on Nov. 10. AH Wll- liamaport Is tied for first place In the eastern championship, a Billtown win would automatically eliminate Altoona, especially If Wllllamsport goes to the eastern title. It's a cinch the conference wouldn't pair off the two teams In an eastern-western playoff, especially after they met once. So it's up to Altoona to lick Wllllamsport. Altoona High now has seven straight Conference wins. And the team bids fair to make it nine successive conference, victories aa both Tyrone and Johnstown have been consistent losers, Huntingdon, Jersey Shore and Bedford High teams can all finish the season with an undefeated conference record but neither will benefit much My points, due to the few games played. Even with Altoona High losing one game of the remaining two conference tllta, points given Altoona by reason of the maroon-defeated teamw beating out conference rivals, will greatly exceed the totals of the unbeaten teams mentioned abovo. No matter what happens Altoona High has the 1«20 western section conference title cinched. The Coach Snaps Emanuel 1D29 maroons aro champions. Altoona High now has a total of ICO points under the scoring system. Thin is tho highest total ever made by a team In the group. Altoona has played seven conference members. And these seven teams have won ten games from other conference rivals. Each win gives Altoona 10 points, or a total of 100 points." But these same seven conference opponents lost eight conference games, and 5 points are deducted for each defeat, or 40 points. The difference between 100 and 40 is 60 points to the good. As the conference awards 100 points for each win, Altoona has 700 points by reason of the vlctorlles. Divided by the games played, seven, this leaves 100 working points. Adding the 00 points given on tho win-lose decision of Altoona's beaten teams tho official point total Is 160 points. Hero's how Altoona's 00 extra points aro added: lost to Windber nnd Jersey taking 10 points from Altoona. Loss 10 points. Willlamsburg adds 10 with ft State College win and loses 5 from Bedford. Gain 5'points. Bellefonto adds 10 with wins off Windber end 10 off Tyrone, losing 6 with a loss at Huntingdon. Gain 15 points. Hollldaysburg added 10 with a win off CloarUeld. lost 5 with a beating to Bedford. Gain 6 points. Lock Haven, added 10 with win ovor Phillpsburg, and 10 with win over Johnstown. Lost 6 In defeat to Portage. Gain 15 points. Clearflcld added 10 with win over Tyrone and 10 for beating Phlllps- burg, losing 5 for loss .to Hollidaya- burg. Gain 15 points. Windber added 10 w.ith win over Portage and 10 with win over Crosson, losing 5 In loss to Bollefonte. Gain 15 points. And adding and subtracting thn gains and losses, respectively, Altoona has 60 added points, or 160 all told. A team that could defeat Altoona right now would benefit by Just 70 gift points, because that team would get 10 polnfH for every win gained by Altoona. But Johnstown or Tyrone don't Intend beating tho maroons, although both of them are going to try and try hard. Neither can take the title even wjth the big point gift. Altoona won't likely have 160 points by the tlhie the season ends, because wins oft' Johnstown und Tyrone will lower the points, as tho conference records of both teams are poor. Here's the official point summary as well as the win, lose, tie and scoring record: W. Altoona 7 Bedford :i Huntingdon 1 Jersey Shore 'I Bellefonte , To Muse and Amuse By SPORTS EDITOR Inspired Altoona According to pre-game advice from Windber, an "inspired team" was coming to Altoona to meet tho undefeated Altoona High maroons last Saturday. And the pre-game dope may have )>ern correct but tho "Inspiring" part nf the battle was furnished by the Altoona High team. Altoona had all the pep and inspiration. Windber may have hud some but It wasn't the winning kind. And Wlndber's drubbing cami; about through an event just before game time. Some Altoonan, armed with paper diagrams and all, was explaining to Coach Earl A. Unger of Windber all of the Altoona plays and doing It openly right at the clubhouse. When Altoona High found that out there was no stopping 'em. The dope gained by Couch Urigcr didn't help his team any, for the maroons were stopped but once during the entire game. 1'lny Clean Football Hero's an Interesting piece Qt news for all Altoona High grid opponents, past and future: Altoona High hasn't suffered a single 15-yard penalty for any violation of the grid rules this season. The only penalties Altoona suffered were for 5 yards, off-sides. And that speaks volumes for the Altoona High 1029 creation. It shows that the marons are drilled In good clean football, and that they play the clean. Altoonu. has always been noted for decent players, They take no unfair advantage "In the pileups". Rest assured that If Altoona played dirty or committed any foujs, that Altoona' would have been penalized. For In every Altoona game*thls season officials strictly neutral have been used and they didn't ignore any happenings, just to please Alioona. Altoona Intends to keep the play clean. After all, that's as much of a credit as winning. "Not who won but. how did you play tho game." Try Three Forwards Altoona High didn't have to take any "air" against Windber on Saturday at. the Cricket field. The maroons gained all tho ground needed by hammering the line. The ball game saw the fewest number of passes of any Altoona game since the opening clash with Cresson. Altoona tried but two In that first game. Saturday the maroons attempted only three forwards. The team didn't need to take to the air to gain. One pass, Milton to Calderwood, gained 20 yards In the first period. Two more 'wore thrown later In the game, but both were grounded. Altoona benefited by Wlndber's use •of the aerials and three times Altoona Intercepted. Thompson intercepted one NEW WRINKLE ADDED TO MAN IN MOTION Portage Lewlstown Clear-Held Windber .

Must Always Down Ball One happening in the Altoona-Windber game Is drawing more discussion than even the game itself. And that happening is tho run that Windber was allowed to complete to score the team's only touchdown. In the third period with Windber on her own 40-yard line, a pass was thrown to Edwards. He made the catch. Before that the head- linesman's horn was tooted for an Altoona offside penalty. Altoona players listened to the horn and made no effort to bother Windber. And the Windber ball carrier made no effort to advance. He stopped. When appealed to «by fellow players he ran to tho goal lino unmolested. And Windber took the gain, Instead of the 5-yard penalty, which was perfectly legal. Altoona made the mistake by not downing the ball carrier. The ball Is never dead until the referee blows his whistle. And he is tho only official in a game with a whistle. The head linesman used a horn. The umpire used a gun. Rule 24 of the football code explains that "the referee only shall have a whistle." Other officials must have different sounding horns. Rule 25 pertains to the umpire which says that "the umpire must signal all fouls with a horn, but the piay continues until the ball Is declared dead by the referee." Tho same rule pertains to tho head linesman or fleld judge. And the rules provide that the umpire, field judge and head linesman must designate at once the noting of a foul, remaining at that spot to confer with the referde. Play, however, keeps on going until the ball is downed. The same thing pertains to time end- Ing a game. The gun can be fired any time but If the play is still in progress, that play must be completed, Tilings You Should Know Altoona High now has a point total of 231 points, which, is the largest score ever run up by a modern High eleven . . and more points are coming In the last four contests of the season. 'Turk Azar, 1 former A. H. S. guard,' Is playing for G-Burg frosh, his team losing 9-0 to Gettysburg academy on Saturday. Harry "Spook" Temple, Altoona, fullback for Bellefonte academy, drew words of praise in tho 0-0 game against Penn frosh . . , and the Ponn wrlteups say that "Templt- is one of the hardest line-plungers in prep school ranks. 1 ' Huntingdon High keeps right on winning games . . . and taking over the • St. Francis Reserves was something worth while . . . even though it means nothing in tho stand- Ing. Bollefonte High broke the "Jinx" held by Tyrone, and the Centre eoUnty team won a 'game just for luck . . . although Tyrone hadn't tasted of a defeat at Bellefonte since 1922. A little thing like rain didn't bother loyal Altoona High fans at the Cricket fleld . and athough It poured down in the second half nobody seemed to llnd need for an umbrella . . . and lots of folks got soaked. "Come get me" yelled Tommy Thompson, Altoona halfback, as he got through tho line against Windber and the whole team gave chase as the fleet back gained distance to rip off 59 yards and a score; . And "Sonny Boy" Milton also did some talking as Marron, Windber back,' tried to get out of his grasp In a tackle. . "Stay put, boy" said Milt, and the Windber player did. MARTIN HIGH IN CITY PIN LEAGUE Twenty-one scores of 200 or over were made last evening In the matches In the City Bowling league, Harry Martin, of the Morgan-Martin company turning in the high single and high match score. Martin got a 234 game to start off with and finished the evening with a 635 total. His high scoring helped the M-M team to win two of three from Machine Shop. Car Shop won a pair from Yon- Gerkcn with J. Langguth as the high scorer. Middle Division annexed two close games from Mllllkan Motors, margins being 9 and 32 pins.

When Fordham knocked the cockeyed football world silly a few weeks ago by upsetting Chick Median's string N. Y. U, team 2« to 0, one of its ; touchdown passes came about in an unusual way. The man In motion before thu ball, No. 2, In this case, 'no often ran behind his line to his left' und then came back to hfs right, much as hiu course is pictured in, the diagram, that Kordham's backs eventually stopped covering him as he swung wldu to the right, thinking ho wa» merely a decoy. Eventually ho mudo himself known In a most unkind way. As he tore widely to thu right on the particular play shown here, the ball was snapped to No. 1, who started to his left behind No, 4. No. 4 partially hides No. 1 in such That permitted No. 1 to circle to his rear and shoot a pass to No. L'. No. 2, being uncovered, breezed along easily for a touchdown. West Virginia will have to cover thin man in their gam« with Fordham today clue thu Mountaineers will get one tremendous walloping. Let's see tomorrow how the Navy uses the man in motion play.

START WORK MR JOHNSTOWN SCRAP Altoona High starts a. new football season on Saturday, the maroon and white annually taking on a new lease of life with the Johnstown High contest. Altoona High will on Saturday forget the early part of the season, will '' forget the seven straight wins and attend strictly to the Winning b£ the game at Johnstown. A much harder game than usual Is expected this year. Johnstown's .record Isn't Impressive. Altoona's Is. And the difference on paper In the team records Is bothering the coaches somewhat, as the hardest task Is to key up the maroons. Johnstown is Altoona's hardest annual rival and a Win each year over the Johnnies is always the most desired reward. Altoona holds just two wins over the Johnstown team" since 1920, winning that year and again In 1922. During the last two seasons the teams played scoreless ties. There'll be scoring galore, maybe, ln< the Saturday game. Duncan C. McCallum of Leechburg, who was the whistle footer last Saturday In Altoona, will be the referee at Johnstown.on Saturday. He is head of the western Pennsylvania officials association. The klckqff at Johnstown is to be at 2.30 o'clock. > The Altoona High school band, th« maroon clad musicians, will make the trip to Johnstown, this being the musicians' annual "reward trip".
