f THE ALTOONA MIRROR—TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1929 To Muse and Amuse By , SPOltTS EDITOR Jinking Records Galore The Altoona High football team has piled up a lot of honors already this season and more can come with the three remaining games. Here's Altoona's performance to date: • Won eight straight. Won moro games than anj other "modern" Altoona team. Scored 250 points, or more than any other Altoona eleven. Allowed opponents but two touch- i downs, or less points than any other Maroon team. Cinched the western section Central P. I. A. football conference for first time. Attracted enough fans to make suru of a special train to accompany team on biennial jaunt to Johnstown. And more things can happen in the Wllllamsport, Cumberland and -Tyrone 1 High games, all being played in this city. Enormous crowds are promised for each scrap. Altoona Lends Support There is nothing 1 lacking as far, as support from Altoona High students, alumnus and townspeople goes and v athletio officials at Altoona High are V as pleased as pleased can be. Ifc—•'"Altoona High more than paid its own * guarantee at Johnstown last Saturday. / The Altoona crowd at the game was just about as big, if not bigger, than the Johnstown crowd. And the Jawns ALTOONA HI WINS JOHNSTOWN PRAISE The praises of Altoona High are being sung by the Johnstown i scribes and Pat Malloy, sports editor' of the Johnstown Democrat pays the mu- roons a mighty fine tribute. Here's some of the high spots of the Johnny writeup: "It took only a few minutes for Johnstown football followers to find out why Altoona boasts of one of the best elevens in the history of the • school. Coach "Snaps" Emanuel had no outstanding star in his lineup. He had no great open-field runner, no line-crushing backs or giant linesman, but what he did have was one of the prettiest eleven men teams that, has ever performed on' The Point field. He had three backs who alternated at carrying the ball,-" a heady field general and seven fast, hardcharging and alert linesmen. All In all he had a team, not built around one or two fan-idolized individuals, but around 11, each one of whom has specific duties to do and who did them real football fashion. . i "It was not a poor Johnstown football team that fell before the attack of the Mountain City eleven, but the flghtingest, smartest best offensive and defensive team that Coach Harrick has placed on the field this season. Johnstown had a wonderful team Sat>• urday, but they just happened to meet \ Altoona, which has an aggregation V this year far superior to any ordinary /P'-Wgh school team. The Azure "and /" Black showed wonderful Improvement over its other games of this year, displaying it in the second half 1 of play when they held the visitors without a point. "Fully 3,000 Altoona fans were on The Point. A special • train brought 1,500 In addition ' to the automobile crowd and those who arrived on earlier trains. ""Wonder how many rode on railroad passes? Somehow, or other, we've always had an idea that every man, woman and child who boarded a train in Altoona was riding free. "No doubt many folks in Altoona have the idea that any time our kids want an ingot, a steel bar or a keg of nails to play.with, "pop" gets it'gratis 'because he works in the steel mills. "The next time somebody presents somebody else with, a huge basket of chrysanthemums, the suggestion is offered that the presentation' be a little bit more formal. When somebody gets two dozen "mums" from somebody else, more should be seen of the giver. Also the "glvee" should be in evidence. "Nobody minded the 15-minute'delay in starting the game in order that those waiting to get inside could see the klckoff. "Sure was a crowd.- With both bleachers filled, the overflow used part of the b,ltherto unoccupied grandstand. "The Johnstown and Altoona bands went over big, especially the massed numbers between halves. "It was the first time Altoona wore their new band uniforms. They're pretty nifty. / "Before the next inter-city game / which attracts two cheering sections on r ^opposite sides of the field, we're going (to tip the local head cheer leader that, like in bridge, there are certain little rules to be followed. Nothing important, but just to give the right touch. "Same with the leader of the band. "We never did Jlke the term "moral victory," but holding the best team in the history of Altoona to a 19-0 score with one of our weakest teams is some kind of a victory for us. We'll call it a moral victory. "With this defeat as something to work on, there's the game next year in Altoona. "On to Altoona) had a big turnout of their own boosters, too. Altoona easily filled up the smaller stands attd tho overflow had to fill one end of the Johnstown stands. In addition Altoona rooters filled a section of the stands used only for baseball. And Altoona cheerleaders had to scatter about some to include all the fans. It was the biggest outpouring of Altoon* fans for any grid game in recent years. That special train was jammed to the roof and every coach, built for 60 people, held 100 and more, The paid fares on' the train 1 totaled 1,600. And plenty of fans had parses, too. The Altoona maroon-decorated cars at Johnstown were parked everywhere In the Flood City. And walking along the 'Johnny streets was like walking up Eleventh avenue. Altoonana were everywhere. Make What Conches Ask Altoona High grid players did ex actly what the corps of coaches desired 'em to do last Saturday against Johnstown. , . . Early in the week this column announced that Altoona High players were being drilled in plays that promised at least three touchdowns. In fact Altoona coaches were, working for three scores to be satisfied With tho squad. • Altoona made the three touchdowns In the first half and .then was silent the last half. The Maroons got a lot of real good practice in the last two periods/and coaches were pleased with the fine defense of the team. Visiting Teams Win, Too The well known "old dope" was given a rather rude shattering last Saturday in the western interscholastlu football conference. In tho early part of the season "home" teams were winners in all games and the visiting team was as good as licked even before the game was played. Saturday shattered this rule, as all visiting, teams beat all homo teams. Altoona, Clearfleld aiii Jersey Shore did the visiting and they licked Johnstown, State College and Lock Haven, and by good sized margins, too. And there'll be a lot more such surprises before the season ends. The home team has no advantage in this conference. Just nine times this season have visiting teams licked the home teams. And a total of thirty-four games have been played. Things Yon Should Know • "Ball, ball, who wants the ball? yelled Referee Duncan McCallum, Leechburg official, who tovled the j whistle at Johnstown Saturday. . , When the game ended he held up tho ball and invited a scramble for it . find he got what he didn't expect . for he was the center of twenty-two players, all intent on bagging the oval . . . with Altoona finally successful.- 2 — Altoona High'a record for real clean football is still perfect ... and no of- i flclal has had the pleasure, the honor, ' or whatever you may call it, of impos- .ng a 10- or 15-yard penalty on the Maroons. . . . Altoona's penalties still remain 5-yard ones for offsides. Bill Dillon, Altoona substitute fullback, licked the ball for Altoona just once on Saturday . . .and his kick went straight up like a balloon ascension . . . finally blowing out of bounds.—— Altoona High had no complaint to .find with the Johnstown officials . . . even though the team Was kept ou't of a touchdown by two off-side penalties, one coming after a score. . . . Then Johnstown was allowed a 10-yard gain on a forward pass interference . . ; bul no Altoona player interfered whatever, a Johnny receiver tripping himself with no one even handy. . . . Altoona madp no complaint. First plays in the Johnny game were good for both teams . Torebus got 9 on Johnstown's first run and Tomjmy Thompson got B on Altoona's first' thrust. bill Battery Repairing . Ignition Service WKItT/UHUUtClf'B Service Station Cherry Ave. * 4lb 81.

Same old spinner by back 0, 4 starts it. On two previous plays his spinner has : resulted in a gain on wide sweep and another on a buck nslde the defensive left tackle. By that time the defensive backs arc et to come up like a.Bhot to stop both penlngs. It is a sound theory in foot- all that if your running attack begins o function your opposing backs will ome up fast to stop it. Then vou can ass. Rockne plays'it that way with ho three plays we -have been dealing vith. When the two preceding ones york, look out for this simple pass. As the ball Is snapped both ends tear traight down field. They ought to be overed. But they wsually are not. Imply because the defending backs ire as hell bent on rushing up to stop ft run as are Notre Dame's ends to gei. y them. The obvious happens. They are free and , No. 4, after spinning, realcs back to the right and shoots a orward pass to No. 5. Tomorrow we'll have a look at lockne's half-spinner, a play Southern California will encounter Saturday. W. MARYLAND UNBEATEN. BALTIMORE. Md., Nov. 12.—Defcat- ng Loyola, College of Baltimore 33 to ' in.the stadium here today, Western Maryland's football team remained he only undefeated college eleven in .he state. They took the offensive at .he start and before the half closed scored 20 points, 13 of which were made In the initial period. Western Maryland's last touchdown came in .he final period as Wellinger, left half- }ack, took the ball around left end and ran 70 yards. Loyola showed its freatest strength In the third period. An aerial attack uncorked by Dellaire, quarterback, produced a touchdown. Western Maryland plays St. Francis college at the Cricket field Saturday, Nov. 23.

SATURDAY COLLEGE GAMES TO THRILL ..NEW YjORK, Nov. 12.—Notre Dame's game with Southern California at Soldiers field,' Chicago, and the traditional Yale-Princeton battle at New Haven, furnish the glamour and color for this''week's football program t even these two great attractions fall to overshadow entirely the many other excellent attractions. With the exception of the Notre Dame-Southern California game the ntersecllonal bookings are comparatively unimportant but this Is offset by the fact that leaders In the race foi- sectional honors in every part of the country are scheduled to meet formidable opposition. Pittsburgh and Cornell, the easts only undefeated and untied teams meet Carnegie Tech and Dartmouth respectively. Pitt will be a slight favorite to defeat the Skibos but the Dartmouth game is expected to eliminate Cornell from consideration for championship honors. Pitt Is especially anxious to make a strong show- Ing against Carnegie as this game provides the season's only comparison between the Panthers and Notre Dame, Carpegle having held the Irish to a 7 to 0 score. In addition to these games the eastern schedule Includes Intersectlonal games between 'Missouri, and New York university and Villa-Nova and Davis and Blkins. But for the traditions behind the game and the ancient rivalry among the "big three" the Yale-Princeton game would rank secondary to these four contests. Princeton is in the midst of the most disappointing season In its history and is conceded little chance against Yale, which—if Booth ta In the lineup—la entitled to ranking aa one of the east's best teams. The Notre Dame-Southern California game la Important enough to monopolize attention In any section of the country. Notre Dame apparently Is enroute to a national championship and the Trojans are rated as the team most likely ,to mar the Rockne team's perfect record. A defeat by California eliminated the Trojans from the nation's leaders but Coach Howard Jones regards his team as the best he has had In years. WAS TIGEU PLAYEU.
