' ALTOOtfA MIRROR—WfiDN£gt?AY, NOVEMBER 6, ^PACIFIC COAST HEAVY HITTER WILL JOIN WHITE SOX One of Heaviest Outfielders In 4ame, Smead Jolley, Is Ex-' pected to "Aid Batting Punch to Donie Bush's ream In 1930. *<y JOHN B. FOSTER. (COlj rifely, 1920, by Altoona Mirror.) VEW YORK, Nov. 6.—Smead Jolley it the San Francisco baseball club --y'fceen signed by the Chicago Americana. The White Sox at last have made a,move to put some punch Into their team. They have been without such a commodity for some reasons. ThiS man Jolley is a puncher. There is a story about him. Not a major league t scout who gets out to California missed glaring at Jolley from every angle. Many of them did hot see anything except the fact that Jolley Is a big roly poly boy. None denied that he could bat. He can. He batted .380 In 1929 and that is smart hi£ting. But he has 'batted even better. In 1928. for instance, he batted .404 and the San- Francisco owners felt sure that they could get a perfectly good market for such a hitter. None iturned up, however. For Jolley Is not much faster than were the Boones of fond memory. Major league owners could not think of tying themselves up with slow going out_ flelders. Some of them recalled the Boone who was with the Boston Americans. Boone could hit the'ball over the fence, but he could not run after V anyone's hits. It's true, of course, Vthat Boone is better now, but owners "T?Jd not want to go to the cost of educating Jolley as Boone has been educated. : Among tho clubs that were Importuned to purchase the services of Jolley was Pittsburgh. Barney Dreyfuss covetously upon this Herculean swatter but decided to do without him, because Pittsburgh was pretty well fixed . with the two Waners and Clyde Barnhart. Later Barnhart faded and per. haps Barney was sorry he did not get Jolley. Donle Bush was manager of Pittsburgh at that time and he took more than a look at Jolley. But he too decided that Jolley was too slow. Bush is now managing the Chicago Americansjjind it is pretty certain that he did not object to Jolley when the matter of bringing the big boy into the major leagues was discussed. It seems to the writer as If Jolley should feel a little shop worn. Other American clubs have cast eyes at him. So have National league outfits. Once Brooklyn was on the verge o>f signing Jolley. But it fell through. Some wag then remarked that it ^ was because Uncle Robby did not want anyone on the Brooklyn team larger than himself. What Jolley may be good for is this. He can hit In fourth place In the Chicago batting order and occasionally drive a run or two across the home plate. Chicago has been getting runners on the bases and leaving them there. Baseball games are not won that way. Chicago needs badly a batter who will bring all those young men home. Jolley is the man. California will •miss him. GRIDIRON BRIEFS. (By United Press.) ITHACA, N.

NEW YORK, Nov. 6.— Fordham university remained today among the Undefeated football teams of the coun- •Ky but its record was marred by a .cond tie of the season — Tuesday's jfame with West Virginia at the Polo grounds having resulted in a scoreless tie. During the closing minutes of *he ga^ie Fordham rushed the ball rrom its own 8-yard line to within a y<-H of the southerners' goal.

To Muse and Amuse By SPOUTS EDITOR Once Again the annual week for football for Altoona and Johnstown has rolled around. And the High school rivals clash this Saturday on the Johnstown Point grounds. That won't make any difference In the Altoona support. Altoona w.llf hook up all kinds of automobiles Saturday and the 'trek across the Buckhorn will be one long line. And Altoona promises to have Ss many fans In Johnstown for the game as Johnstown turns out. That's some order. This is an Altoona year and Altoona maroons are favored to win with ease. But it won't be so easy, because Johns^ town knows how to flght and fights its best with Altoona as the oppfinent. Some mighty poor Johnstown teams have defeated some mighty good Altoona elevens. Don't forget that'. Lose Even With a Win A-rather unusual condition prevails in the P. I. A. football conference relative to the Altoor.a-Johnstown High game. Altoona, by losing the game to the Jawns, can better its standing in the conference. That sounds contradictory, but it is true. By winning, Altoona stands to lope more conference points than the team can gain by winning the. score margin. Altoona now has 700 points by reason of seven wins. Say Altoona loses Saturday; that still means 700 points, divided by eight games, or a total of 87.5 points. Altoona still retains its 60 points given, by teams Altoona defeated. This would make 147.5. Now say Johnstown is beaten Saturday, and they will be, Altoona will lose 5 points for every game the Jawns lose. The team has already lost two, that's 10 points. Jersey STiore and Windber came next and that may be 10 more, or a 20-point loss. ' Hence by losing a game Altoona would lose just 12.5 points, or the difference between 100' for winning and 87.5 by a loss. Yet by winning Altoona stands to lose 20 points by reason of Johnstown's other lickings. But Altoona wants the victory over the old rival more than the points. The points aren't needed. The win is. Busy Referee Duncan McCallum of Leechburg, Pa., who did the whistle tooting as .referee fbr/the Altoona-Wlndber game at the Cricket fleld on Saturday, Is one of the busiest of the western Pennsylvania officials, and he handled four games in a three-day period over the week-end. The referee handled a Friday afternoon and a Friday night game before coming to Altoona and then left after the game for Ohio to take care of a Sunday battle. He toots for Altoona again this Saturday. He was greatly impressed with the Altoona eleven and also with the Windber fighting spirit. "There is no let-up to the effort on the_part of either team, and while the score is one-sided the loselrs are /fighting," stated the referee. And it was all the more a-tribute to Altoona to score a win by such a wide margin over a fighting team, one that didn't give up. ' , Curly Clifford Nifty ^ Contrary to general practices, this column feels inclined to say something nice, something timely, about an individual on the Altoona High school football team. The player has it-coming to him. . • We don't like to mention names, of course, but his initials are Joe "Curly" Clifford, quarterback. He's deserving of the praise of all Altoona High fans. It's become a habit, among those who write, not to sing the praises of any one individual too high, especially during the season of play. And this is done because of a "jinx" that usually follows such a player singled out. When you say fine things about a player it usually follows that the work In the next game is of such a calibre that the player doesn't quite live up to the written reputation. However, in the case of Curly Clifford, we're willing to take a'chance, aa he is immune to any jinx. Curly has barked signals for Altoona' High in every game this year and has seen to it that tho maroons 'pick up a couple of early first downs and then shoot over for a touchdown. He has a special pet play that he can work for a score the first five minutes of any ball game, And he uses it. What's more he mixes up the variety of plays and ha». the ball toters In real harmony, and he can handle that line to perfection. When he wants a, hole he gets what he orders. And Clifford has another fine trait. PITT AND W. & J. BATTLE IN TWENTY-EIGHTH GAME PITTSBURGH, Nov. «.-Stadium officials are expecting the crowd that will attend the Pltt-W. and J. game Nov. 9 will be another banner crowd. They foresee a new record 1 , of attendance for Pltt-W. and J. games. Despite the fact that the stadium has had large crowds all season, the exceptional brilliance of the Panthers' and. the revival of good football teams at Wash-Jeff is expected to bring out another large crowd. Given any sort of a break in the weather, close to 50,000 fans will see the thirtieth clash -between the two ancient rivals. At the present time the Merles stands at fourteen to thirteen in favor of the Panthers. Two games have resulted in scoreless ties. When the Presidents come out on the stadium field this Saturday they will bo out to even ttie count, and nothing less will satiify them. SEEK GKIU GAME. The Sproul-Claysburg independent football team would like to arrange a game for Saturday, Nov. 9, or on Armistice day.

Yet he Is perfectly capable himself of taking the pigskin over.

Thing* Yon Should That every day In every way It looks more and more like Altoona High will meet John Harris of Harrlsburg In a post-season game in Altoona for the interscholastlc 1929 title . . . and Altoona will win, too . . . that is, provided John Harris doesn't get the most. points. - Willlamsport High has a hard game at homo this week with Steelton High . . . and the Cherry and White fans believe this game will take a lot of pep out of the Billtowners . . . so they won't be so strong when they come to Altoona. - Peto Beech, who captained Altoona High in basketball for two seasons, now a student at Perkiomen seminary, fitted in as a tackle on the Perky football team . . . and It was his flrst game ever as a grid player. — ^-Altoona grid fans are keeping their eyes on Dick Harlow's Western Maryland football team . . . which appears at the Cricket fleld Nov. 23 against St. Francis college . . . and the Marylanders haven't lost a single game this season. - Saturday will be a very tame "at home" day for the grid fans In the city and county . . . and very little Is doing ... as Altoona is away,- Williamsburg idle and Tyrone- Hollldaysburg playing next Monday.

WHOLE FAMILY OF BOOTHS SEE ALBIE (By NEA Bervjce.) NEW HAVEN Conn., Nov. 6.—-Three years ago Harvard and Yale were fighting bitterly to break a scoreless tie. On the sidelines sat a senior, Bill Booth, a nice drop-kicker, an accurate and strong passer and a capable ball carrier. From the stands came the cry: "Give us Booth! We want Bill Booth!" Another man was given the chance. Bill Booth sat there on tho sidelines and watched the game end in a tie, 0 to 0. It was his senior year. His chance for fame had gone. That Bill Booth was'the big brother of little Albie Booth, Yale's football Idol of the day. And it was Bill who taught Albie the football arts in which little Albie shows so much proficiency today. Bill took the disappointment of not being allowed to win that game for Yale, and took it like a man. He drilled Albie in punting and drop-kicking and forwand passing. There were tricks of broken field running that Bill knew, too.' Day after day Bill toiled with the kid, building him up physically fbr the day when Albie would go to Yale. It was Bill who urged that Albie spend two or three years at MUford academy under the wise guidance of Coach Bill Lovell. Albie Booth was prepared soundly for the gridiron glory he was to win. The Booths are a family in medium circumstances. They live in part of a three-family frame house at 020 Dlx- well street, here. Albert J. Booth, sr., the father of Bill and Albie, is a polisher in the manufacturing plant of the Winchester Arms company. • Father and Mother Booth often denied themselves little things so that Bill and'Albie could go through college. But both boys have helped themselves by working to defray the expenses. Albie's proud parents relate that the young man made his first sensational open-field run when he was nine months old. Restless, he clambered over the side of his crib—head first, just as every other natural athlete would have done it. He crept through the bedroom, the parlor, the dining room—into the kitchen and pushed open two doors on the way. To Mother Booth, of course, that fact stands out juat aa importantly as his slashing, twisting dashes in the Yale bowl now. The Kid's first job was selling newspapers, after the school day at Ivy street grammar school had ended. Later he went to work for the same dairy company that had employed Bill during his college days. He was employed by a meat packing company in 1928. His job was packing pork, operating the bacon slicer and finally supervisor ,ln the baking department. Albie set a precedent in Yale freshman history when he was chosen as captain of the football, basketball and baseball teams. It was his ability as a ball carrier this year that finally resulted in rejection of the Warner system at Yale, aftur the Georgia disaster. -Under the Warner double-wing back formation, Albie would have been expected to take his turn in running interference, a job he was deemed too light for. Booth, sr., never misses a game. Last year, during the Harvard-Yale freshman game, they had to hold him in the stands when a couple of Harvard trosh got rough with Albie. WANTS TITLE CHANCE. CHICAGO, Nov. 6.—Irish. Jimmy McLarnin, believed today that he was ready for a welterweight match with Jackie Fields, the present 147-pound title holder. Jimmy feels that he got over the toughest obstacle in his path to the welterweight throne when ho whipped Sammy Mandell the lightweight champion. *• -^ ' _ BATTERIES UNCHARGED AND REPAIRED Call for our service truck when you have battery or ignition trouble.

The special train, arranged by the High school athletic association, seems assured. Three hundred must be guaranteed with a car fare of $1.40 for a round trip. • Many fans promise to take the train rather than motor across the detour highway. The train will leave at 12.45 o'clock and will depart a half hour after the Johnstown game is over. Altoona's band of natty maroon uniformed players will be transported to Johnstown free of charge, Altoona business firms donating the rides. Johnstown is making big plans for the game. The Jawng do not expect to win but school officials, coaches and students are hoping that Johnstown puts up a real fight, fans expecting to find some consolation even in defeat, 'provided the Jawns battle for all they are worth. The game will likely be played on a sloppy fleld as the Point grounds have been water soaked for the past few weeks. Altoona coaches have expres~s- ed themselves as working for a two. or three touchdown margin against the Jawns. SONNY BOY MILTON IS SURE Of 1 REGULAR POST • Edward "Sonny Boy" Milton, the galloping ghost of Altoona High in the teams' championship football race, and the wearer of No. 29 as fullback, will be 1 a regular on the Altoona High team JIB long as he shows the present high grade of football and maintains his scholastic standing. This information was given today in answer to numerous, without fact, rumors going the rounds, the rumors being started mainly by those who are not in complete accord with Altoona winning. There will be no discrimination at Altoona High. All students are eligible to ^participate in sports and no favoritism will be shown by tho present cprps of coaches or by faculty members or advisors. It's a question of the best boy for each position and "Sonny Boy" will be there without fail. Milton is a sophomore student, In his first yeav at Altoona High and he .will be making touchdowns galore for Altoona in the years to come. He played last year with Roosevelt High. MABSTEIIS OUT OF GAME. HANOVER, N. H., Nov. 0.—Al Marsters, Dartmouth's sensational quarterback and one of 1920's greatest backfleld men, today faced the realization that he has played his last intercollegiate foptball game. X-ray pictures have Revealed that Marsters, a senior, had suffered a fracture of the right transverse process at the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae In the Yale game Saturday.

SECTIONAL FOOTBALL LEADERS LIKELY TO MAINTAIN TOP PLACE NEW YORK, Nov. 6.—Sectional football leaders appeared likely to maintain their position among the elite for another week as most of them fa,ce supposedly weaker opponents during the coming week-end. However, no district will lack interesting Kamca as In addition to tlje chance of leaders meeting an upset there are numerous games in which -unusually well matched teams aro scheduled to meet. Yale, Pittsburgh, Cornell and Pennsylvania—the big four of the east— should win handily from their respective rivals of the present week—Maryland, W. & J., West Virginia and Penn State—although there Is a distinct chnnco of an upset in every contest. Picking a favorite In a number of other eastern games is a difficult task. True Dartmouth should take Brown Into camp but what of the clash between the unbeaten Fordham and Boston college? Another game which promises fine competition Is the Detroit-West Virginia battle at Morgantown. Detroit was held to a tie by Marquotte last week after winning nineteen consecutive games since 1027 and the mountaineers have been defeated by Davis and Elldns and Pittsburgh. Villanova, another team which Is undefeated since 1827, meets Bucknell, a traditional rival. Bucknell lost to W. & J. early in the season but has high hopes of ending Vlllanova's groat record. Colgate, defeated only by Wisconsin, meets Columbia and the Lion's fine showing against Cornell Is causing Colgate coaches considerable worry. Georgetown, with its best team in years, meets Navy in what should prove to be a close battle while the intersectional game between New York university and Georgia at Yankee stadium also promises interesting developments. Notre Dame and Purdue, two of the mlddlewest's strongest teams, expect little competition from Drake and .Mississippi. Minnesota faces its hard- 'est test of the season with Iowa. The Hawkeyes are anxious to repeat their last year victory and avenge the defeats sustained at Minnesota's hands in the three previous >»ars and It will not be surprising to see the Gophers drop from the ranks of tho undefeated. Tho Big Ten conference's two big Intorsectional games, Michigan vs. Harvard and Illinois vs. Army appears to he triumphs for the east but conference teams have a disconcerting habit of playing their greatest football against eastern schools. Because of this fact and the ability of Coaches Zuppkb of Illinois and Klpke of Michigan to defeat opponents for whom they "point" make those'games tossups. Two of the clashes between conference rivals, Chicago vs. Wisconsin and Northwestern vs. Ohio also rate as even. California, Standford and Southern California outclass other Pacific coast teams and should win handily from Montana, Washington and Nevada this week. WILLIAMSBURG HI PLAYS ORBISONIA Wllllamsburg High will play a Thursday half-holiday game this week, the blue and white of Coach Daniel B. Kulp to meet the Orblsonla High team on Thursday at 3.15 o'clock. This is a hal£ holiday in tho Papertown and a large crbwd of fahs IH expected. Tho entire squad of Williamsburg players will be used in thia game. Orbisonia recently played In Altoona losing to Roosevelt High but tho team has shown some improvement lately. Tho Williamsburg players aro in good shape following the recent hard games. Much of the practice this week has been spent in line play, tho forwards being weak all season In opening holes on the line. Several now boys ore looking good and there will be some changes in tho varsity. Myers, freshman has shown real class. Lcc, freshman center, is gqod as a ball passer being weak only on the defense. Funk has also improved and may take an end place. Coach Kulp intends starting his sec- dnd string against Orbisonia High tomorrow. Tho regulars will sou very little action. Tho Wllliamsbui'K team will be at home for tho final two games. The club is at Saxton on Nov. 16 playing a return game there. On Nov. 28, Thanksgiving day tho team plays tho annual game at Hollldaysburg. NAVY PASS ATTACK EXECUTED SMOOTHLY Of all the teams I have seen this season, Bill Ingram's Navy outllt has us much llncsso In its passing attack as any. Navy Bill believes in the mun- in-niotion-beforo-the-ball Idea, running practically all of his plays from it. Hero's one of tho pet pasaes used by Annapolis. A tall, fast back is placed in tho No. 5 position. No. 4 swings back beforo the ball IH snapped to him and then gives ground to tho rlghlf rear as he threatens a run around tho oppo- Blto end. No. 5 swings out to the right anrt down|tho field at top speed. Note how tho oVids cut in back of the scrimmage line as though to take a PIIHS. This move tends to hold tho defensive backs In that urea. Backs NOH. 6 and 3 take the defensive end and tackle, whilo guard No. 7 disposes of tho trailing tacklajfmd end. Thus tho passer, Nci. 4, is protected. Ho shoots a puss whilu on tho run to No. 6. H'GH For Cold Weather Protect your ankles—and avoid colds. Buy yourself a pair of lliese smart Walk-Over high shoes.

The Coach Jimmy Lynch team will meet the Spangler High eleven. This Is the team's second visit o£ the season. Spangler was originally booked for Nov. 10 in Altoona but the game has been moved forward due to a mlxup In games for Nov. 9. Both LaSallo of Cumberland and >Patton High were booked for Saturday in this city. Both canceled early this week. Tho Spangler eleven recently beat Johnstown Catholic High, local rivals by a 7-0 score in a night game at Johnstown. Spanglor lost In this city to 'Altoona Hi J. V's 18 to 0. Spangler has mtet Portage, Punxsutawney, Altoona J. V., Patton, Carrolltown, Johnstown Catholics and Ebensburg this season, the schedule being one of the hardest of any team in this district. Coaches are spending considerable time this week in drilling in new plays. No game was played last week and tho coaches are seeking to keep up the pep among tho squad. Several lineup changes have been made. Tommy Irwin and Andy Purcell will likely start at the end positions. The Cricket fleld kickoff will bo at 2.30 o'clock. It begins to appear that all those Big Ten teams ought to fear Purdue a little. To one of the questions about the strength of tho Pitt cloven, a certain backlicld gent seems to be the Uansa. Upsets havo aroused in Forecaster O'Goofty BO much disgust that here is tho way ho predicts this Saturday's games for you : Drake to beat Notre Dame, 25 to 0. Maryland to beat Yale, 7 to 0. Now York U. to beat Georgia, 14 to 7. Brown to boat Dartmouth, 0 to 0. W. and J. to beat Pitt, 21 to 7. Boston collugo to overwhelm Fordham, 35 to 31. Kentucky to beat Alabama, 12 to 7. Nevada to trample Southern California, 25 to 24, Montana to nose out California, 64 to 2. Washington to murdur Stanford, 3 to 0. This new heavyweight guy, Prlmo Camera, wears shoes of size 21 or something like that. Part of that fellow is golntf to bo run over if he ever tries to cross Broadway in the rush hour.
