Church, wjthhis great speed, is
especially good getting down the
field under punts. Shevlin has taught
him, in a short time, to outguess his
opponents and there was not a time
in the Yale-Princeton game when the
Tiger interferers were able to get
the Yale end into a "box.''
This is Church's first season on the
varsity team. He is called a Sbevlin

Football teams of the western half
of the country have done more this
season to break into football history
than for many years. Most of the
limelight of recent seasons has been
copped by elevens of the east.
The west has given the season the
longest drop-kick, the longest for
ward pass, and the west, represented
by the Oregan Aggies, has given the

eyes of easterners by beating the
Michigan Aggies, who had tnmmed
the University of Michigan.
The performance of western teams
and individuals this season has
created so much intersectional in
terest it is possible more games be

of the country will be scheduled for
Charley Brickley is to be as good
a coach as he was player at Harvard,
according to Baltimore sport writ
ers who have watched him handle
the Johns Hopkins university eleven.
It is said Brickley has meant to
Johns Hopkins in football what a life
saver means to a drowning man
when he grabs him as he is going
down for the last time.
This is Brickley's first year as a
coach. He cost Johns Hopkins a lot
of money, but is said to have made
good for the school financially and
