In scoring stuff; the Jawns lead with 183 points to Altoona'H 40. Altoona has played scoreless ties With the Johnstown team the last two seasons.

Altoona HlRh enters the all-Important Johnstown scrap with a record of •even straight victories, the finest record ever scored by an Altoona eleven. Thn team has run up a total of 231 points to 12 for opponents. Johnstown High has one victory and four losses for the season* tho Light Blue and Black of Johnstown beating Indiana a week ago after losing to Cumberland. Lock Haven, Meadvilta and Portage. The Johns lost to Lock Haven 18-0. Altoona beat Lock Haven 25-0. Opponents have scored just Dl points against the Johnstown team this season. The low scores allowed opponents by Johnstown is being given lots of consideration by Altoona coaches. The low totals Is taken to moan that Johnstown has a pretty good defense system, ' lacking, however, in offensive plays, plays that produce scores. . Altoona High will have a squad of thirty-two players In uniform at Johnstown and Coach Snaps Kmanuel intends seeing that all of them get some service. Altoona has used at least thirty players in every game this sea»on. The same eleven players thar started the last threo games for the maroon ' and white will do the starting against t Johnstown. This team will be kept in ' action as long as the crow functions! properly. Coaches will take no chances with the team members being injured, as tho full strength Is desired for the Wllllamsport contest on Nov. 16 In Altoona. Johnstown is making elaborate plans for a welcome to the maroon and " white. One section of tho Point stand) . Will be reserved for the rooters anci ii band. A dance will follow tho game. i This "ball" is an annual event after a.11 Johnny-Altoona games. N. Y. U. HAS STAR.

"ROTHY" OFF TO JOHNSTOWN-TO SEE GUY JOLSON SINGS ABOUT n.v " "You boys all a goin' to Johnstown? scz I to a bunch of my shopmates. They wuz all a slttin' in tho blacksmith shop smokin' their after lunch pipes, an' clgarets, an' restin 1 from their Inborn of the forenoon. Its bin a long time since I heard the subject of scholastic football discussed by grown men In tho Pennsy shops, which goes to show how intense Is the interest that's bein' taken in our own Altoona high squad of boring machines. "You goin' Rothy?" sez one feller, "Me goin'," I answers. You bet your boots, I'm goin'. Wouldn't miss the chance of seeln' them boys humble that Jawn squad for a day's wages. Why I've bin walten yijars for this chance, why its wuth the price o' admission to see that, er, er, who's that boy that "Al Jolson sings about, oh yes, "Sonny Boy Milton," well Its wuth tho price o' admission, as I remarked before, to see that "Sonny Boy" bore through that line. You fellers, some o' you anyhow are ma- chlniHts, and run btjring. machines. Well that boy is goin' to go through that Jawn line Jist like you fellers push your machine through that axle, or driving rod, "How you goin 1 to git over Rothy?" spoke up some smart guy, walk? Not on your life, sez I. Don't you know that the Pennsy is goin' to run one o' them spechul tra.lns over on Saturday mornln', an' didn't you know that Fri- day wuz-pay day? What do you mean walk? Well at that the fellers winks' at one another an' grins. I don't know what they meant, but they suspects that 1 didn't hev tho money, an* I kinda gits my dander up, fer I thought mebbe they wuz countln on me deadheadln it over on my pass, what do you know about that? Well then the boys started to discuss that funny play that was mado on Saturday, when that Coaltown bunch got that one lone touchdown. As fer me friends, I had my back turned at the time, an 1 wuz talkln' to a young lady froTi Windbcr, an 1 therefore I couldn't explain the play, as I would liked to have done. "Gosh Rothy" sez I to myself, I'm glad I hov an alibi, fer It must ho'v bin a mysterious play, seeln 1 that nobody seemed to understand It. Some say It wuz the referee, an' others' claim It was the linesman, that blowed his traffic whistle, any' how It didn't stop traffic, fer that i Coaltown boy kept goin 1 doWn the fleld, and made a touohdowh. • Well boys, I wuz tittta' down on the ^tand behind home plate, an' when them Wiridber boys crawled off the field after the first half. They were so tired, that 1 they mounted them steps on their hands, an" knees. It was 'a great day, an* them high school' boys what plays in the band sura looked nifty, In their new , uniforms, with that high-hatted drum major marchln' proudly at their head. S'long.

See Them In Our Windows KansHS university authorities say heir fullback gets .$75 a month from n alumnus. But he has to sell insur- nce, too. O'Ooofty wonders if the word "In- urance" isn't meant to be "assur- nco"—that tho team won't lose a ame. Anyway, fullbacklng ought to bo plcndid training for an Insurance man. The Kansas fullback, besides know- ig how to tackle a> customer, ought to o pretty good at hitting the door for 10 yards. Of course, after he's through at Kansas, the fullback always can play a few more years of football at DaVla and Klkins. And; after that, »f he still has a few touchdoWns in his system, he can go to West Point. , At that rate, a man ought to b$ ready to enter professional football by the time he's SO. But some of. those pro griddcrs play as If they were older than that. ROOSEVELT JUNIOR HI MEETING SOPHS A football game that Is expected to prove one of the hardest fought scraps of the season will feature the Roosevelt High blue and white and the Altoona High school sophomore squad, the rivals to clash on Friday afternoon at 3.15 o'clock at the Cricket fleld. This Is an annual game and It's an annual scrap of real interest, too. More than the ordinary Interest Is attached to the game tomorrow. For the past two years Benny Welnsteln, promoted to the Senior High, coached at Roosevelt High and turned out winning elevens. Now he is coachlhg the A. H. S. Sophomores. So he really has the same, with some exceptions, during the past two years. As the coach at Roosevelt High no Weinsteln eleven was ever licked by the Senior High Sophomores. But the Sophs now say that the Weinsteln coached Sophs are going to turn In a .win. Last year Roosevelt Hlgn beat 'the older team by a 19-0 score. The year before Roosevelt won 20 to 0. Practically the entire Sophomore team this season Is ordinarily known as the Altoona J. V.'s. Just a few junior 'and senior students are In the Junior Varsity crowd. Sophomores -are In the majority and hence all J. V. games have been real games of preparation for the Sophs. Wins came over Spangler and Lilly, with Osceola Mills tied. The Roosevelt Junloq High team/ coached by Fred Davis, has three wins'- and one licking this season. The Juniors licked Tyrone 8-0 In this city and won by a big score at Tyrone last week. Orbisonla High was licked 62-0 by the Roosevelt eleven. Replogle\Hlgh of New Enterprise won a 7-0 game from the locals. Carl A. Burket will; be the referee, Dr. Guy S. Tippery the umpire and timer and Zip Milburn the head linesman for' the game tomorrow. CRESSON DUCKPIN LEAGUE Standing. Won. Lost Pet. Ford Motors '9 0 1.000 Coal and Coke .....'... 8 4 .667 P. R.
