As usual, Walter Camp practi
cally passed qp the West in se
lecting his All-America football
team, published in this week's
Collier's Weekly. Butler of Wis
consin, chqsen for one of the
tackle positions, is the bnly man
from this end of the country who
ook Campus fancy.
Camp, in his analysis7jsays :
"There are a few words to say
to show how difficult these selec
tions have been. Although Bo
meisler and Felton make the first
team, Very of Penn State, Ash
baugh of Brown, Hoefi;el of Wis
consin and Jordan of Bijckndl
stand close, with others worthy of
"The same is true of other posi
tions. The choice of a quarter was
very difficult, as Crowther, Paz
zfcti of Lehjgh and Bacdn of
Wesleyan each has special char
acteristics for the posfficm.
"In the,backfield the first-strijig
selection is especially powerful,
with Brickley, Thorpe and Mer
cer. Morey, Dartmouth; Pum
pelly, Yale; Wendell, Harvard;
Baker, Princeton ; Hardage, Van-
derbut, and Noigren, Chicago,
.would all show brilliantly;. Flynn, (ring.
Yale, was the-longest kicker and
fastest man, but had no plays to
disguise his attack,"
Nelson Norgren, halfback and
captain-elect of the University of
Chicago eleven, is chosen for
Camp's second team, which shows
what a superficial examination
'the Yale authority made of con
ditions in the West. Craig of
Wisconsin, McAlmon of Minne
sota" and Van Riper of Wisconsin
Were all better men than Nor
gren. Below is the All-Western team
picked by E. C. Patterson and
published in the sattie number of
Collier's. Patterson does not pick
Eichenlaub of Notre Dame, con
sidered by many experts the best
smashing backfield man in or out
of the Conference. '
Patterson's All-Western.

Willie Ritchie says he will be
champion until July 4 anyway.
He won't fight until then. Mean
time, Willie appears on the stage.
Nat Goodwin should get even
with the boxers for horning into
his profession by staging a battle
royal with his ex-wives in a prize
