"The Goal Posts, Sir, With My Compliments" PITTSBURGH <UP>—From now on, Pitt and Carnegie Tccli will exchange goal posts like gentlemen. The student governing bodies of the two schools which face each other across Forbes street, have signed nn-agreement, which provides that, the Monday following each Pitt-Tech football game, the losing team captain shall deliver his team's goal posts to the campus of the winning school. The gentlemen's agreement between the two rival schools came after more than a year of raids nnd brawls, during whluh the goal I posts nt Pitt Stadium changed [hands n half-dozen times.

It was worth another six poinU for the Indians and a five spot for the ball carrier. (His dad placed that big a premium on his touchdowns). A lucky break on a pass gave Earle their only real chance to break the scoring famine.
