Times Have Changed There was a day when the pro footballing scores were limited to a touchdown or so mid possibly augmented by a couple of Held coals lint times have chanced. The pro football team of today is' different than of old. Practice makes perfect and the $$$$ filacers stage their daily dozen just as regularly as the rah-rah boys. Villi but two exceptions every spoke in .loe fan's wheel this season had lin offense that wan a continual threat. There was a lot of open football. The air drive was the main stock in trade of at least half the clubs and the tossing tame always makes a hit . w ith the spectators who pay their j t.iod money to fe the post graduate ! n.Mivl of football. The pros of 1127 a flock of pood kickers. Field i coals were not so numerous as in J past years but the punters with the! I'O-yard Loot were to be seen in nearly j every game, j (iiaiits Had (.real Team , The New York (Hants, winners ot the championship, probably had the greatest foot hall team ever grouped together on the gridiron. Tint. (Hunts' had an ever powerful wall from tackle to tackle, two big high powered ends and plenty of variety in the. baekfteld. More than this, the New Yorkers hud such a capable set of 'extras' that fresh men could be sent into tl" game without weakening the team a bit. Several stars shone brightly on the pro football horizon this year for the tirst time and one of these was Kenny Friedman, the Michigan All-American quarterback. Benny performed just as well in the pro game as he did on the collegiate grid. As a matter of fact, Friedman showed so much class that he was nearly a unanimous choice for the iiiarterlack job. The former Wolverine didn't have to take his hat off to any player when it oame to lovsing the old apple. It was his bullet like pegs that put Cleveland hack on the' pro football map. Along wilh Friedman i" the back-lield are three 'repeater', Lewellen of the Green llav Puckers, Paddy Dris-coll of the Chicago Hears and Ernie Xevers of Dululli. F.ach of these placers were on the All-American pro fessional team in Ifl'-S. Lewellen was the best punter on the post graduate field besides- Ileitis a fine open field runner and pass receiver. Priscoll isn't ever growing old. He ran pass, run and kick just, as well as he ever did and this is saying a lot. Nevers Played UriUiantly Ernie Nevers continued his brilliant piny tins fall but he wan pushed hard for the fullback job by Mi-Bride of New York, as hard a hitting line plunger as there is in the game today-However, Nevers earned the shade because he pretty near had to go it alone with his Eskimos. - Every man on the first team baek-tiehl is a triple threat artist. They all pass, kick and run the cowhide. Just imagine the deceptive attack that, a coach could build around this quartet. In Haines, Senn and Tron, McBride would have plenty of support in the serond string backtield. Senn and Tryon were ace ground gainers while Haines was without an equal when running the ball in the open field. Oilier (iond Raclis There was a flock of other good barks. The Giants had a pair in Mule Wilson mid Wyokoff. AVildoal Wilson .and Jimmy Conzelinan starred for Providence. Mercer and Rogers looked good for the Yellow jackets while T.atone ami Wentz went well for Potts-ville, Rloodgood and Simmons stood out prominently for Cleveland as did Jones and Straih'i- for the Chicago Cardinals. 1-ambcau, the C-reen Hay Packer captain, played brilliantly. Hubbard of the N. Y. (Giants, playing Ills tirst year (if pro football, showed plenty of class, as an end. lie wan big enough to take care of the tackle yet fast enough to roam the field. The Giants often brought Hubbard hack and had him back tip the title On the defense. Dlhvrg if the Green Hay Packers was practically a nnaniinioiis choice for the other end. The former Mannielte star shone brightly in every gam.'. It was his consistent wing play that helped lots to keep the Wisconsin eleven close to the top in the championship race. Second Team Knds Lynch and Kennealy were 'voted' the places on the .second team but only by a close margin over Corgan of the Giants. Haechus of Cleveland Swanson of the Cardinals and Flaherty of the N. Y. Yankees. Red Josvph of Dayton and Kassell of the Yellow-jackets' also got several ballots, along with .loe Kooney of tluluth. i'.iis Sonnenberg and F.d.

The preliminary game is .scheduled to start about fc:i. .Inst who will start in the lineup of the Columbus club is a matter for conjecture as "Tiny" Cahoon has about a dozen men on his squad. From the looks of things however it is probable that Scharf will be at center, (iaffney and either denies or O'Connor at forwards and l.eicht and Martens at guards. Nicholas, llryan, N. Pigeon, will also be used at forwards and Ooemans at guard. The showing made by the men in this game will no doubt determine the makeup of the team fur the balance of the season. , The preliminary game should prove ahnost the equal of the final game. It is a cinch lhat it is going to be a hard fought affair. Coach Wiley has a squad of veterans at East High and he is looking forward to copping ' the alley conference championship : game this season. His lineup w ill ' probably have Koeser at center. ; Klaus and Hainan at forwards and' I.emieux. Ii Frambois and Shekore i at guards.

The Kelly club has a lol of 'former West High stars in their bat-! ! tie front and the game will have a ! lot of natural r.''ilry in it. The K'el-j ly club lineup will have Arney j Adams, hero of West High's Thanks-; giving Hay victory at center, Crabhe j and Wahl at forwards. Both of these! lads played the same positions at' West High last season. "Fat" Ha-i dick, who this season played such great ball on the Marquette varsity football team will be at backguard and the oilier guard position will be handled by Campshure won several years ago was a sport luminary at West High.
