"For reasons loo numerous to mention," say the Johnstown critics, we believe Unit Altoona does not rate more than 14 points better than Johnstown and, with the advantage of playing on their own Held, Johnstown High's team might cut this margin even smaller. "If Johnstown gets Ihe breaks tomorrow, Altoona, High Isn't going to win, "Coach Harriett's team has no reason for cockiness and over-confidence, but they must realize that their case is-far from hopeless.

All drills this week have been at the Cricket field, tho maroons giving up the Maple avenue park due to the mud out there. And for the first time this season the maroons are in perfect shape, not a single mishap marring any of the Cricket field practices. Altoona High players, coaches, cheer leaders will' leave by train early tomorrow morning for Johnstown. The squad will take up quarters at a hotel in the Flood city. The Altoona High band and the cheering delegation of 800 students, together with the citizen delegation of more than 1,000 will leave by special train at 12.30 noon tomorrow. The train occupants will parade from the station to the Point field. The Johnstown High band will lead tho march. Altoona High players are expecting a hard game. Followers of the team look for an easy win, based on scores during the season. . But the maroons have been carefully coached this week, coaches stressing the fact that Johnstown will be fighting with Its back to the wall, which means a much tougher fight for Altoona. Johnstown selects Altoona as tho winner from 14 to 21 points. Altoona coaches ask for at least a two touchdown margin. A scrimmage was held last evening at tho Cricket field and every player on tho squad saw some action. The varsity tried out some new plays. Altoona High is seeking the eighth straight victory of the season over Johnstown and the maroons also look for the first win over Johnstown in seven years, no Altoona team beating the Light Plue and Black since 1922. Teams played scoreless ties tho last two seasons.

A FINANCIAL PROBLEM. A man went into a hat store to buy a hat, which he did for $7.50, giving the hatter a $10 bill. Unable to change it, the hatter took the $10 bill next door to a delicatessen dealer, who was slicing ham at the time. The delicatessen man changed the bill. A couple of hours later he rushed into the hatter's to tell him that the bill was a counterfeit. The hatter gave him a good $10 bill for It. Assuming the hat to have been worth $7.60, who lost and how much? You need not ask questions about our lumber. "It is right," says our numerous satisfied customers. JAS. S.
