In discussing Georgetown's chances
next spring. Capt. Fury .stated that the
material for a championship team waa
In sight, and that with the proper coach
lngcan enviable record will be estab

The Technical High school football
coach makes reply through the medium
of another Washington newspaper, to
an opinion expressed in these columns
"yesterday that the reason why he an
nounced 'last week that Tech might
forfeit to Central in the annual game
was because ha personally would have
to shoulder the blame in case the sub-'
stltutes wbo-replaced the flunking regu

and that rather than run the .chance of
Injury to any of these players he would
call off the game.
This argument, as far as it goes. Is .all
right, but the point the writer wished
to' bring out wss that, a coach In charge
of ' a. football eleven representing a school
the sire of Tech should have at least
two eleven In shape to play. In other
words, the coach admits the possibility
of having to play poorly trained substi

lars, showing that he is not a capable

these schools' are held responsible for
the physical condition of the boys in
their charge,' Just .the aame as the coach
at Tech. and up to date the first' two
named have offered no excuses such as
emanated from the man in charge at
Devlin to the Minors.
Arthur Devlin, the former Georgetown
baseball and football star, who last
summer played with the Boston- Braves,
may go to the Oakland Club of the Pacific-
Coast League. 'A dispatch received
from Boston last night follows:
"It Isn't to .be expected that the Oak?
land club uwneis will permit Sharpe to
come to the Boston Nationals without
getting something in return, and the
latest information from the-Pacific Coast
Is that Art Devlin is -.the man that'Stall

Owing to the death' of one of the fac

when, the funeral of the teacher takes

serves to respect the deceased teacher,
but wUI incidentally afford the two
schools one more afternoon of work.

In the South. Lieut, Land, of the Navy,
has been selected by the board of facul

will umpire. Lieut Land has officiated
in high school games before, and has
given general satisfaction. The early
starting hour waa made that the high
school contest might not conflict with
the afternoon games of the local col
leges, all the latter Institutions having
games at the later hour.
The early start is not expected to de
tract from the interest centering around
the game nor the size of tha anticipated
crowd. As haa been the case In the past,
the meeting between Central and Its
Manual Training rivals haa always at
tracted a great gathering to the scene of
battle, and this year It Is predicted the
precedent wUI continue. The champion
ship haa most always, for the last six or
seven seasons at least, resulted from the
winning of' this game for the one school
or the other, and this season, with Busi
ness, Eastern, and Western charged with
one or mora loases apiece, the winner, al
though .they have each played but one
game, will have the decided advantage.
Through the failure of a few Technical
regulars and the alleged lack of physical
fltneas of others, Central, which has been
mora fortunate in. both respects, is a
slight favorite' for first honors, though
high school football, ever, teeming with
reverses and upsets in dope, 'may spring
surprises, in this game, but either team.
