(AP)—CoUege football was about the only .one of the "spectacle" sports that kept pace with the growth of interest In active competition during the: "boom" years and now, with gate receipts declining sharply the college sport appears to have found an Important rival in the professional game. While the number of golfers, tennis players, automobile campers and others who preferred to take their outdoor sport in an active way was grdWing by leaps and bounds In the years before 1930 and baseball and boxing were suffering, football kept pace. It is shown In the report, of the president's research committee on social trends. But, adds Dr. J. F. Steiner, professor of sociology at the University of Washington who contributed the chapter on sports and recreation to the report, there Is the' possibility that "public interest may eventually shift from college to professional football because of the superior skill of the latter." ' Hnge Investments. The report, which covers statistically only the period up through 1930. shows the remarkable growth of football in a ten-year period and the huge investmehts which went with it. The costly stadia that were built In the boom times. Dr. Steiner points out, must be paid for In the future and the amounts Involved establish' football as something more than a "passing whim." "According to reports from 135 Institutions," the report says, "the seating facilities for football spectators increased from 929,523 in 1920 to 2,307,850 in 1930, a gain of 148 per dent. "These institutions reported 74 concrete staidla, 55 of which had been built since 1920. Only one of these college stadia in 1920 had a seating capacity of more than 70.000, while there were • seven In this class in 1930." Dne to Depression. . The recent decline In-attendance apparently is due to hard times rather than to declfelng Interest, Dr. Steiner explains. A falling off of about 6 per cent in attendance and 9 per cent in receipts in 1930 was the only decrease found In his statistics up to that year and he adds "since neltlier the curve of attendance nor the curve of receipts showed any tendency to flatten out previous to 1930, there Is reason to lOLA. KANSAS NEW CHINESE BATTLE FRONT CHINA ^ NEWS OF LAHARPE J. C. Moore Appointed to Vacancy on School Board Left by J. Q. Roberts. The scream of artillery fire punctuated by the rattle of machine gims again reverberates through North China, near the Great Wall, where Japanese and Chinese forces engage in battle In an area shown in this map. The garrison city of Shanhaikwan, lying in the danger zone between Changchun and Tientsin, was the scene of one bitter attack. Japanese claimed Chinese had bombed Japanese poUce. They sent a force to Shan­ haikwan. For hours a atte raged with Chinese machine gimners finally repulsing the artillery attack against the walls of the city. Meanwhile Japanese warships reportedly have arrived at Chlnwangtao from Dairen v/hile reserves moved' towards Shanhaikwan from Chinchow. Japanese and Chinese forces are reported concentrating on either side of the Great Wall. "college football may follow college baseball and decline as a public spectacle, becoming a game of no inore than local; interest. "That grave ills have resulted from the stress and struggle to win football championships there can be no doubt. A few of the leading colleges and universities have already attempted ito reorganize their athletics more in accord with general student welfare and educational Ideals."

If the professlonal_game should replace the colleges in public Interest, Dr. Steiner's report concludes, Are You an Eater? •pjURIXft the holiday season a ^ great deal of plain and fancy eating seems to be the vogue. If you have a feeliris of fullness as you read this, don't blame me. It's a little story aboiit the gustatory ambition of a fellow named Billy PotroUe, that old Fargo Express who recently camo within a couple of whlRkorB of ,wlnnlng the world lightweight champloniiblp.
