Texas Interschoiastic League Largest Of Its Kind in World ! By HAROLD V. RATLIFF AP Sports Writer •The Texas Interscliolastic League is the largest organization <<] its kind in the world — 916 teams in football. Abilene holds the national scholastic record for consecutive victories — 49. . The only time Texas ever triec for the national football championship it won it. That was in 1927 when Waco beat Latin Cn thedral of Cleveland. But if records nre to be cited they don't come from the Texas Interscliolastic League. This organization keeps no records. It can't tell the schools which is the winningest team, who made the longest run, who threw the .ong- est pass, what team scored the most points. tThis information has to be compiled by the sporte writers through memory or by somebody digging it. up. "Back in 1927 Waco scored 7S4 points in 14 games. This is the record. But how many other teams went over the 700-point riiark? Spur in 1930 rolled up 784 points in 15 games.

Moreover, Paducah is third instca.l of Denver City. Paducah in 1954 scored 732 points in 14 games before being eliminated in the state Class A semi-finals by Albany. How many more teams went over the 700-point mark in the 41 years of the Interschoiastic League's football? Then there is the record for points in one season by an individual Ken Hall in 1933 at Sugar-1 and scored 395. In iour years be had S99. Now, can somebody come forward with a better record than than? It seems here lhat the Interscholastic League should set up a ureau for compiling results and performances so that the records will be known. It is supposed to tave a report on every game Dlayed. This would be a monumental task but if the football race is as important as it is sup- osed to be — and 8,000,000 faris ier season would indicate it — then it ought to have its records available for everyone to see. The Interschoiastic League ,s he largest organization of its kind n the world and it probably is the only sports organization in the vorld that doesn't keep records.
