a touchdown in the first five minutes of play this aftornoon and won from Kandolpli-Macon 8 to 0 The ball had been carried from the middle of the field by consistent gaining through the line when Barrett completed a 10-yard pass to Smith and the latter carried the ball over the goal line The Virginian line was unable to withstand the onslaughts of the Methodists A fumble and a penalty by Trinity players on the goal lino robbed the Methodists or two touchdowns Trinity made fourteen first downs to Randolph-Macon's two During the first few minutes of the game it looked as if the Virginians were going to be swamped but a revival of spirit from the visitors and the inability of Trinity players to complete plays when a touchdown would have resulted left no change in the score af ter the first five minutes A freak kick-off and the aerial attack told lor the Methodists in the first quarters The Virginians were unable to get in any except defensive plays Trinity resorted to line bucks for gains in the latter periods The Trinity team showed marked Improvement over the game of a week ago Smith ran his team more smoothly but weakness was Bhown in interference and in catching the ball under the excitement of play B'auser-man fullback did the principal gaining for Randolph-Macon Once he got away for a fifteen-yard run around end He had good support from Randolph at left half

There Will Be More Football Contests Where Contending Elevens Are Evenly Matched " By FUZZY WOODRUFF The farther the football season of 1921 goes the more apparent it becomes how welcomed will be the advent of 1022 with the functioning of the southern conference and it's my humble opinion that this conference is going to be just as big a boon to the little schools outside its jurisdiction as the big schools within it Last week I was in Athens Ga to see the football game between the University of Goorgia and Furman It was a real football game Furman knew just as much football as Georgia It knew a whole lot more about the more advanced phases of football than Georgia did At the end of the first half Furman was leading 7-6 but everybody knew then and there the game was over and that Furman would not be returned the winner Furman nas a studont body of ap-' proximately 250 Georgia's student body is about four times that large Manifestly Furman could not call on the ro-serve forces that were at Georgia'scom-mand Manifestly it was tho part of generalship for Georgia to batter what Furman bad to pieces and win the game as it pleased when Furman had nothing left — which is just exactly what Georgia did ' ( Lesson of Pugilism I'm not criticising Georgia for so doing but it occurs to me that there u little sport in football games played under such conditions They handle things much more sensibly in pugilism and pugilism is not supposed to have any of the sportsmanly elements of football Certainly no pugilistic audience ever stood for a heavyweight mauling a lightweight about and by that same token I don't believe that it'i the regular thing to do to match a football team from a colege of 1000 student body against the football team of a college of 200 student body And still it's done in the south by every southern college and done in extenso ad nauseam Wherefore the through seasons undefeated and with goal lines uncrossed but those colleges will have had their courage tested their endurance tried and their resourcefulness weighed in the balance and after all it was for the development of these very attributes that America's great intercollegiate gama was invented (Southern News Feature) SMITHFIELD BEATS GOLDSBORO Goldsboro Oct 15-Smithflelo High defeated the Goldsboro Odd Fellows' High here yesterday by the score of 12 to 0 Captain Norwood Holland staiiod for Smithfield scoring both touchdowM The feature of tha game for the locals was a fifty-yard run by Blnnchard Univrsity of Georgia has the excollont excuse that everybody's doing it and so everybody is Georgia is not to bo blamed The authorities governing the game are Of course the college authorities will hold up their hands in virtuous horror and explain that these game with the smaller colleges are merely practice affairs Absurdity of Explanation Lot's see just how absurd the ex planation is The collegiate football season very properly lasts a maximum of ten weeks It would be suicidal ti attempt to lengthen it In the first place the thoughts of student bodies during tho football season are dorotrd to nothing but football If higher education gets into the brain of any col lege youngster during that time it gets in with a jimmy or dynamite It's a fine thing for college morale and college spirit while it lasts Its benefits are incalculable but there is such a tiling ns too much of a good thing In the second place the ten weeks season is plenty long enough for tho players Keeping them on edge longer would be fatal to their physical welfare We will dismiss whether it is long enough for the patrons Football patronage has its virtues It also has its drawbacks Of those ten weeks five days are supposed to be devoted to practice and one day to play That's a big enough per centnge But under tho present system of football schedule making we finl that actually a maximum of four days is devoted to play and sixtv-six davs to practice which seems a trifle lop sided Spirit of Conference However the spirit of the conference which may or may not be carried out is that the big schools shall play the big schools Naturally that means that the little schools will play the little schools It means that we will have next year some rivalry of evenly matched competition which is the sav ing grace of every sport Some ebllegs may not be able to go AT LAST WE HAVE
