- THE ALTOONA MIRROR—FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1929 LIAS3ED FOOTBALL CENTERS OUTLINED All Schools In City Will Participate In Contests to Be Staged by Park and Recreation Department. Six district centers have been designated by the city park and recreation department In connection with the , mass football for boys, the locations being the Altoona Driving park, the old High school athletic field, Prospect park, the Tenth ward playground, the Falrview playground and Memorial park, Junlata. The finals will be played at the Cricket field on Nov. 26. All the schools In the city have been apprised and all are expected to take part. Ribbons will be awarded the district win- nets and suitable prizes will be given the winners in the finals, while a cup or pennant will be given the school securing the highest number of points. The winner will be determined by taking the sum of the ten best scores and adding ten points for each participant. In organizing this activity the park and recreation department wants it understood that it is for all boys between the ages of 10 and 18, inclusive, regardless of whether they attend public or parochial schools or whether they work, nor ia it confined to race. It Is open to any and all boys within the age limit mentioned above. It has been arranged to have this ac- y tlvity take place every .evening, Saturday and Sunday excluded, from 4 to 9 p. m. This does not interfere with school activities and offers an opportunity for the young fellow who works in the shops, to come out for a good, wholesome workout. A graded system of scoring has been worked out whereby the 10-year-old boy hasjust as much of an opportunity to win as the 18-year-old boy. For the past ten years, material has been collected from all parts of the United States' until now the records of thousands and thousands of boys are available. An average age score was struck for each boy for each of the four eventa; punting, drop kicking, place kicking, and forward passing, all for distance. No average was considered authentic until at least 10,000 scares were available. After striking an average score per age a ratio-point system was worked out. To illustrate: An 18-year-old boy who forward passes 112 feet scores 408 points while the 10- year-old need only hurl the pig skin forty-two feet to score the same number of points.

There is no way, of course, by which roads can be compelled to amalgamate against their will and minority stockholders will be able to Insist upon a fair valuation of their holdings. The problems are innumerable and they turn upon opportunities for voluntary consolidation which congress will open up if it takes any action at all on a program of consolidation. The whole subject has some political background because the representatives and senators from certain regions may feel that new terminals will be established affecting tho Importance of cities containing present terminals. Afl that will have to be threshed out before action can be taken but thte significant thln£ is that the Interstate commerce commission is about to make its report at a time when congress is in the mood to go earnestly into the entire question.
