(UP)— Char- acterising lior former pupil, Governor Thomas E. .Dewey, as "a real scrapper—a lad who usually ,ow what he wanted," Mr.;.. C. W, Moore thinks he'd make a vory •ood Prosident. When she taught history to the Presidential candidate in Owasiio, Mich., he was the outstanding pupil, she said. Others, too. had all •A's" on their report cards, bul. they larked what Tom had — an iggroKsivo personality," As i.s her custom when new honors come .his way, Mrs, Moore -lent tlic GOP Presidential candl- !atc a letter of congratulation on his nomination. The Bear was raving mad and wain-ted to know who had hit him. Gus loid him Mint tho blow had _ been delivered by one of thu members of tho University of Punivj-ylvania loam. For l-h'o real, of that gamn he was a bl^ 1 bad Boar to the Pomv loam. Warner always 'worked 'his boys pretty .hard ('uirinp; tho wank by .having what he called "tribal scrimmages." The Redmen wen: divided imil.0 their own tribes and had regular practice agnirujt each other. Then On Saturday the Brave-. wouk! all gather into ono war party and scalp I'lio whitu men on the gridiron. And tho Carlisle Indians scalped many a white football loam kii their day. Yale, Hurvai-d, Vandoi-- bilt. Michigan, Army— I hey all .f.-.-ll before tho alUicks of the Kodmen. But tho game -thai they treasured more than any oilier was -the annual fracas wil'li t h c United •Stnle.T. Military acatlomy. Warner nnd his Indians liked to tackle Iho Army. Ln. 191J the boy?, who made the i odds picked the. Army by a wido margin ovur the Indians. It looked I iiko tho West Pointers really had Iho team lo wipe up tlio gridii-on with Thrope and 'liis cohorts. About five minutes before the game was to start Pop Warner strolled into the Carlisle dressing room. His Indians were dressing rjuiot- ly and with little display of emotion. Their stolid faces didn't .'betray one bit of the excitement thai must have been playing around in their minds. Warner let his gaxc rove around the room. Ho stopped for a minute when his eyes came to rest on Thorpe. Tho big, pcrfcclly-buill Indian was silontly fixing a shoe lace, The Indians slowly gathered firound thijii- coach. Their slightly- brown bodies wore bulging under shoulder pads and jorsics. Thi-ir coal black hair shone in the dim light of the dressing room. Then Warner started l.o speak and he made ono of the greatest talks ever heard in a. dressing room. It rivaled the ono given by Knute Rockno in a later Notre Dame-Army game. Warner spoke softly, yet every word was heard by tho Indians. . He said : • j "From t.he shores of LiUlc Big Horn to the banks of Wu'indnd Knee creek, Iho spirits of your poo- j plo call to you today. Tho men who died in Chief Joseph's retrofit over the mountain; the Cherokeos who marched on bleeding; fuel through the snow out of their ancestral lands tell you that ycu must win.'.' For a moment Warner didn't say a word. He just slopped ar.d looked at his boys. There wasn't a -sound us he continued: •' "These men wi> nro playing today are soldiers. These are Iho- long knives. Yoii are tho Indians. When this giimo ia over we will know whether or not you are wu.r- rlors." Thorpe socmcd to sense that the speech had come to an , end. Ho marled lo pull on his 'headgear. Warner look a deep breath and sai'd : "That's all. Lot's go." The Indians slopped out from Ihe starling whistle and pr from Ihe start that Ihey were the warriors that Pop Warner < felt they were. . '• Late in the third quarter the Indians hail a slight lead and the Cadets wore clumfoundod. The Indians had the ball deep 'in their 'own territory when Gus Welch called a play that sent Jim Thorpe off tackle. Thorpe, took the 'pigskin — luckoc 7 it. under his hig n.>;ii— und went sailing down Ihe field. One after another Ihe Army boys bounced off his big hips and shouldros and,, in lass .Lime lhan you could say: Hiawatha, he wat in Iho uml stone. • . But thorn was a . handkerchief on the ground and -the play wa.« called back. Little Vederneck— u 135-pound linesman — had heo.n caught holding and the Indians wore penalized 35 -yards. Thorpe slowly walked back down tho field and stopped in front of Vedoneck. Ho towered over the liny Indian and said: *Piil your hands in your pocket. I-Ioro I go again." And ho di'd just that, Jim Thorpe went 90 yards thi-ough Iho Army learn to score and auw up thai game. That was 'the spirit chut made tho Carlisle Indians thrilling football loam.

Some of tho "fails have brvnidod •together into a new society, to take cnre of tile present, crisis, .' . The society was formed at New ~vv,fi<' • Hotel.
