ALTOONA HIGH NOT HARD PRESSED YET The following letter, which sums up all that has been said and done during the past ten days in reference lo Huntingdon's claim for consideration in football, tells a lot of real Interest to every fan. H. O. Martin widely known as a sports booster and enthusiast, Is the writer. Here it Is: "Why all the shooting about the Huntingdon High football team? No letter printed to date has displayed a grain of sense. Each team has Its regular schedule to play, and the one leading at the finish under the point system Is champion of the section. Thai's all there Is to it. The winner must play a post season game against the winner of the Eastern end, and there is no record of any High team playing two post season games, especially since the second would be an anticlimax. The game for the East and West sections title game would Just about take it all out of the contending teams. "Huntingdon arranged a schedule of conference setups with the Idea that they could win that way. If bad management kills their chances,, that's their fault. If Altoona dropped Huntingdon from its schedule some years ago, so did other teams, and for the same reason that they persisted In playing ineligible men. Comparative scores with Bellefonto mean nothing. Altoona played Its worst football of the season against Bellefonte, while Bellefonte pointed for Wlndber and was nothing like the same team the following week, on top of which the Bellefonte fans began to apostrophize their team as champions following the Wlndbor victory, thus instilling overconfidence In an already weakened team. "The Altoona coaches have not played for high scores in any game, using three full teams every time out. As a matter of fact, nobody knows the actual strength of the Altoona • eleven because they have not been hard- pressed in a single instance this season, and neither of the two touchdowns scored against them has been earned from scrimmage. "A Huntingdon correspondent says they are not jealous of Altoona's success, but that's what started the argument. No one in Altoona was paying any attention to Huntingdon previous to that time, since the teams were not scheduled. The same man turns about and says that he would bet a thousand dollars on the outcome! Also, he says the Huntingdon coach agrees on a winner take all basis. I thought they had a High school team.. No coach has such authority in a High school. Even if he did he would have everything to gain and nothing to lose. A defeat would not cost him his job. "The whole truth Is that Huntingdon has a good team and the fans are beginning to see the fallacy of trying to win with a schedule of set-ups. Let them pay the price of their own mismanagement." SUM QUAKTEK INJURED. NEW YORK, Nov. 11.—Jphn "Jinx" O'Herin, veteran New York university quarterback la lost to his team for the rest of the season, because of a broken leg, sustained in the Georgia game Saturday. Because of a sequence of football misfortunes O'Herin has come to be known to his school mates "Jinx." MAY fOOL TACKLE ON CLEVER SPIN SOUTHPAW CONTROL. Jimmy Walkup, Fort Worth left- handed pitching star, is one southpaw who has control. In a 15-game stretch last season he walked only 13 batters. Uy SOL METZOEK Companion plays that look alike, start, alike and hit at far different points are the last word in football It takes a master mind to design them. Knute Rockno of Notre Dame possesses just that sort of brain. Saturday wo explained his wide sweep around right end. Today let's look at a play that closely resembles it to the defense until it is too late for the defense to return to tho point of attack. Once a defensive left tackle has a wide run pulled around him, such as was shown Saturday, he's very likely, upon seeing the ball passed to back No. 1, and back No. 1 turn and fake passing it to No. 2, to charge wido to break up the same sweep around his end. Rockne wants h.'m to. When that wish of the Notre Dame coach becomes action on the defensive tackle, No. 1 spins clear around as No. 2 sweeps past him to the right, and colnes back Inside the defensive tackli- like a ton of falling brick. No tacklo has a chance against such a play it he has made a false move. Two men jam him the way ho started to go. Tomorrow—Let's see how this same spinner can bo utilized in forward passing.

CROSS Itiulio Ilr.palr Shop Phone 2-4021 SIX BIG SCRAPS ON COLLEGE CARD NEW YORK,. Nov. II.—The eastern football fan with a lot of money could have lots of fun today in anticipation as to where he would spend some of it to sec his favorite sport played on Saturday. Probably lie would first think about, a trip to New Haven where Yale will meet Princeton in a big three game. Since Yale will be nearly a two to one favorite to win, ono may as well expect Princeton to win, being as how big three contests often barge away from form. New Haven Holds no monopoly, how- over, there are at least fl^e other real football contests In the making. These a re: Dartmouth vs. Cornell at Hanover. Harvard vs. Holy Cross at Cambridge. Syracuse VH. Colgate at Syracuse. Penn State vs. Buckncll at State College. Pittsburgh vs. Carnegie Tech at Pittsburgh. Each of these teams, save two, have had their ups and downs this year. Cornell and Pitt have had only ups. The others have been beaten, at least once. Still, each of the above ten teams has demonstrated possession of real scoring punch, and a cagey defense. Just now, a bet on any of the games would have to be on a fifty- basis, except possibly on the Pitt-Car- ncgle affray In which the Panthers is certain to rule a favorite. Last Saturday's play was well dot- led with what the experts like to call upsets. "*One came hero In New York where the New York university Violets a. placid team all season, became for a day the violent Violets of yesteryear and trounced Georgia, conquerors of Yale 27 to 19. Another upset was' the Yale-Maryland result In which the Ells wero held to a tie by a team which has fared ill this year. Penn State beat Penn, 19-7, to supply still another form reversal. Georegtown and Navy were deadlocked with no score, although Navy had been favored. Army out to Illinois, 7-17, and Harvard lost :o Michigan, 12-14 In games played in the mid-west. Army's loss was considered an upset.
