The question elands: Which Is His br-sl defense—a good detenu: rr a good offer.*;?

Twenty-five years ago a young man named Gil Doble, coaching at Washington, started on a string of victories (and ties) that was nine years long. And during that time, the University ot Southern California eleven was playing against high school teams! PHI and Penn Pitt got tough back in 1915, under Pop Warner's magic touch, and went through 1918 without lasting defeat. A winning streak of 32 games was rolled up.

Perhaps the western personnel is somewhat d'fTcrent. I believe ihe boys from Ihc west are more capable of playing a good olTen- rivc type of football than those of the east.
