On The Outside - Looking In By "DUKE" Empty Seats If there has been one outstanding thing noticeable in news pictures of grid battles this fail it's been the empty seats in the. background. Most of us in this section must necessarily gat our glimpses of collegiate football and the big games from pictures. There was nothing unusual when the early season pictures of practice sessions showed vast empty spaces in the stadiums but action photographs of real games revealed that most of the seats were still vacant. v Attendance Good Here Football attendance almost everywhere In the country except in BIythevllle has been off. Of course the reason Blylhcville crowds have Improved are: night football, first, and second, .that there was plenty of room for improvement. If the kind of crowds that have turned out for the first two night games -here can't bring B. H. S. football "out of the re3," then it can't be done. Night football nny have its disadvantages later en when cold wenther or rain interfere. . But at the time this is written it looks like .there's no rtoiring that the group of business men nnd alumni who set out to secure funds for the lighting equipment an:l the mjn who so generously contributed or loaned mcney for the purpose have renewed interest in a sport that was almost on the downgrade >n two 1 ' 1 ""' And co "' u Charby Kram-r ! „..„„ i in on that, tco.

His father, Amos Ltndiay Stagg, was the father of six other children, and every one of them 'had lo keep busy to make both'ends meet, young Stagg had the usual chores that fall to the tot of a poor boy—chopping wood, carrying coal, weeding the garden, starting fires in the stove. « » + If he had followed the example of (he young men with whom he played the games of boyhood, Btagg would have terminated his schooling after the fourth grade. A high school education in tr.ose cays marked a young man as distinctly "upper class." There wos something of his an- :estors in the boy, some of the Indomitable spirit that carried them through the Revolution ;.s brave soldiers for the Colonies. He decided he would go through high school at all costs. There was no high school In West Orange, nnd in order to enter the high schocl in Orange, Stagg had to think up some way of paying tuition without money. » • * * - .. He did It by attending to furnaces, mowing lawns and other odd jobs lhat got him out of bed early nnd kept him up late. He completed his course in three years, and got the idea that hc would like to ecome a minister. The tuition fee at Yale then was S50 a term, and Stagg, seeing no way to acquire that much money, wrote to President Noah Porter at Ya'.c, asking for help, or advice. President Porter replied that "opportunities for self-help present themselves and are SCJDII discovered by tlioi-e who keep their eyes open to discern them." • •. • The first big hurdle Stagg faced was the entrance examinations. Some sort of preparatory school work was necessary. Stagg decided to try Phillips Exeter. He worked hard during the summer after his high school graduation, but despite heroic econ'omy, was unable to sava enough to start at the prep school until after the Christmas holidays. He then had $21, and a suit that ha'd ueen given to him by his friend, George Gill, son of the mayor of Orange. It must have been a battle. Stagg himself used lo say that that winter nt Phillips Execr was the bitterest winter he ever spent. He lived on a 15-cents-a-day allowance for food, which for the most part was milk and brnad. Hc dwelt in an unhcated garret, wi-.cre he struggled with the intricacies of mathematics, Larn and Greek. t * * Stagg's first prowess in athletics was on the baseball diamond.
