It might be said in connection with the importance of the game that in case Alabama keeps her goal line free from the attacks of the soldiers she will have gone through the football season with only ten points scored on her, the same number opposition has scored against Georgia Tech. To do this would mean that Alabama will have gone through the season with ta - ainst her. and that the sea son will be termed a successful one f0Coach Kelly will take with him to Magic City enough men to make frequent substitutions should there be a necessity for it.

The ability of an athlete In other fields, where he secured his first training and other efforts, Is likely to be forgotten In considering the places where he made his biggest reputation. All of which leads us to compliment the Riverside Military academy for Its ability to train backfleld men In the rudiments of the gridiron game and to make the work of the coaches in the colleges they later attend easy.
