TWELVE THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1939. PICKING THEM FOR SATURDAY By HERB BAKER NEW YORK, Oct. 27 (#>).—A lUick trip around the football cir- suit and into the doghouse: Carnegie Tech-Notre Dame: 'Always close and occasionally surmising. Tech misses Ray Carnal- y, graduated quarterback, on of- ence, making: this a firm (if misguided) ballot for Notre Dame. Michigan-Yale: Ducky Pond and its Elis have accomplished miracles this year with slender inater- aL A Yale- victory here looks like i miracle that can't happen. Michigan.

Navy-Clemsbu: Navy will get a look at one of the great backs of tlve year in this one. Banks McFad-' den of Clemson. This game looks like an absolute toss-up so the coin says Clemson. Tulane-Mississippi: This guesser must be in a gambling mood for] we'll take one long flier on Mississippi. Penn-North Carolina: Very close. North Carolina looks like the best fourth-quarter team in the country but sooner or later the Tar Heels are going to wait too long. Out of a thick fog, Penn. New York University-Georgia: Possible pitfall here. Still N. Y. U. Columbia-Virginia Military: Another lurks in this game. Bosh Pritchard and Paul Shu make the Cadets dangerous.

RIDES AGAIN. A v ^p^.^^Si^^ A GUARANTEED AMERICAN - MADE WATCH FOI YOUNG AMERICANS ON DOWN THE SPORTS TRAIL By WHITNEY MARTIN New York, Oct. 26 (/P).—College football rules, annually a target but usually escaping with only minor 'wounds, again are the bullseye for fans who are sure they could improve the game, although possibly not Tennessee's game. In the past, except on scattered occasions, the rules committee has looked with baleful eye on revolutionary innovations, made a few minor alterations, and called it a day, although it is true the piling up of these minor changes, combined with such radical departures as the moving back of the goal posts and the fumble rule, have made the game what it is today. O Frankly, the only radical change suggested this year that seems to have a fair chance of being adopted is the returning of the goal posts to the goal line, and this can be traced to the pros' success with field goals. There are any number of suggestions for means of scoring the extra point so that a team's margin of superiority does not rest on the QCTQBIR VALUE DAYS Hallowe'en Special Delicious "TANGO" PINEAPPLE SUNDAE After the Parade Stop at our Fountain for Hot Drinks and Sandwiches.

For instance, Roy Mueller of San Antonio would give the team which scored the touchdown the ball on its opponent's 10-yard line, with a series of four downs allowed to score the extra point, which could be done by passing, running, or field goal. Q Mueller also suggests that a successful effort by running or passing count two points, and a kicK one point. A football addict, addressing the sports editor of the Pawtucket, R. I., Times, suggests a chance which virtually would tear the game to pieces and put it back together bit by bit. This fan bemoans the prolonged periods of inaction during which the clock is counting seconds, and he thinks a change in timing rules would help standardize the amount of action in games, and also would eliminate stalling. He suggests that time be "in" only when the ball actually is in play. The length of the periods necessarily would be sliced to the number of minutes a survey would show approximate the time a ball actually is in play now. In that way, the grid student asserts, the spectators would be assured of a certain amount of action each quarter to show the manner in which the amount of action differs in the present standardized game, the writer says he charted two games. In one game 132 plays were run off. In the other there were approximately 160 .plays.. • -.
