'J»A<sfi Pudge Heffelfiuger, Gvid- -' iron Great, Serves' 4th ; Term in Public Office ', By RICHARD JIcCANN V NBA Sen Ice Sporls Wrller " MINNEAPOLIS. Minn —You pi-obably have beard so much about HefTelfingcr and his mighty feals' on thc football nelct that you per- jiaps think he's a legend, like Paul .Bunyan and Jack Ihe Giant Killer. ' But Heflelfliiger Is more tlian a legend. The famsd Pudge of Yale Is now Commissioner w. W. lleflel- finger, of Hcnnepln county, in which 'MHiiiea]Kills is located. y He has sort of taken permanent possession of the office. He must ,lhink It's the Princeton backflold. he's b,cn in It 10 long, having just been elected to his fourth four- year term. ..The',Hon. Pud-<e Is somswheris around 70 yers old now, but you'd never know It. He carries lib years as.lightly us he carried the leather and two or live Harvard tacklers in those glorious bygone days. In fact, only three years ago vifoen he had just passed his 67th birthday Heffelflngci took pan in a charity football game in Mln- heaoolls and carried on quite well, indeed., And 10 years before thai he plased SB minutes of a ball gam? .between two all-star teams. No doubt they Invented lhc pnrase \\hat-n-man foi the Hon. Fudge. It's no wonder then lhat he snorts in disgust when you mention the subject of money for football plnv- ers . . . "It's silly," says the Hon. Pudge. "Ridiculous There should be no remuneration nt nil, directly 01 Indirectly, for Ihe players. Tlie benefits of football excel its dlsarl- vanlascs bv far." Sllll« UK, Gamp The Hon Pudge sllll likes football and attends every game he ca ". ... 'I don I think thsre's much difference in the game now than I played," says Pudge. ."I mean real fundamental difference. In some form or another we did about oiervUilng that' is done In football today. "Of course, we didn't tot-ward ntiss because the rules didn't allow that -But we had laterals, even though they weien't used much, and the • defense nnd offense were lust about ' the same. ,,"However, iimvndnjs with lara- er coaching stnfts there's more attention paid to delalls and the Individual play hns improved considerably " Guaads Public Office BY .I1MMY DONAIIUF.
