TECH AND CENTRAL
Game Expected to Decide Interscholastic Football Cham
pionship Advisory Marks Take Good Men
From Blacksmith Squad.
Tech and Central "111 meet Saturday
In what will probably be the deciding
frame of the high school football series.
Both teams hae won their llrst starts,
ami while Eastern's showing against
Central was not calculated to strengthen
the hope that the Ulue and White nai
the best of the high school tciims, Coch
Thomas and the followers of CeMial
believe the team to be In shapu to win.
At Tech they are downbeat ud, und
av so The advisory marks made a
huge dent in the Tech aspirations, four
of tho strong plavirs were laid low
oiul tho followers of the team tay they
hae little hope of beating Central.
On the other hand manv claim that
Coach Hecox has a card u Ills sleeve
and that the reported forfeiture of the
Tech Uum was only a ruse to increase
Central's hope that tho Maroon und
Gray was weak. Those who have fol
lowed Tech know that "lllcks" 13 full
of such little matters of engineering

At all evenuts It should be a good
game. Tech 1 slow and In Its laBt ap
pearance Central was even slower.
Both teams hae big heavy placrs und
It Is thought that the battle will be
the fiercest of all of tho games played
""in King. Central has. perhaps, tho
best of the defenslo backs, while Tech
can offset this with L'ckendorf. Tho
Manual Trainers also boast of Noel
White at tackle, without doubt one of
the strongest linemen In the schools. A
number of other stars are to make an
appearance In the big game.
ilUBlness and Uastcrn. with Western,
are out of the championship class, all
haMng received defeats. Central has
wone IU only start while Tech has
beaten Western, not Impressively, but
with enough margin to show that tho
team Is powerful ones It hits Its strldo.
Central's showing ngalnst Kastc rn was
not the best that It has made this jeur
but all of tho Hluo and White plavcrs
are resolved to wlpo out tho old scores

Unfortunately for J. Harvard unci the TiRor, Yale
doesn't appear to pay any particular attention to tho
Qrandolddope In nny section of Its manifold trends. The
Bluo lias a highly technical way of piking along until
tho ninth Inning and then bunching hits.
As For Penn State.
In behalf of, our old St. Andrew's chum, C. Atherton,
we arise to correct tho statement that Penn State was
beaten by Pennsylvania last season or tied by W. and J.
In the last fow seasons Penn State, with 2,500 students
to draft from, has risen to be ono of the big powers in
footballdom, with teams which rank aB tho peers of any
mixed with the game. As a matter of fact, Penn State
has grown to bo entirely too boisterous to meet any of
the best football people who have tho habit of coughing
and looking intently in the opposito direction when
she steps up and suggests a date.
The Old Days.
Is football on tho upward douikI? There was a
clamor of excitement when Charley
booted three goals and he w.w hailed
greatest kicker of all time.
Yet among tho old guard whose main pastime was
booting the swine's Inflated epidermis, more than one
has kicked from three to five goals a game, while In one
baltlo Pat O'Dea. of Wisconsin, drop-kicked tho oval
across the bar sixty-five yards away.
If a gentlemanly athlete planted
kick in this frenzied era, the nation's
would be forced to uoublo Its spaco to have said athlete
depicted In proper form and size.
The Balldom Shadow.
Baseball, In one way, was never more prosperous. In
another wa It was necr closer to the breakers of dis
aster. This shadow doesn't loom In any way from the
ranks of rhe players or as many feared, from the gam
bling clement of the fans.
It doesn't loom from the umpiring or from the man
agers. All tho discredit now cast upon tho national
game comes from certain club owners, who are furnish

ing more harm than all other sections of the game
lumped into one mass. It Is this class of club owners
that Is now discrediting the game, and unless the gen
eral standard of owner Is raised In tho older league,
at least It Is only a matter of brief time heforo the
public turns away In disgust.
With the Players.
It is a noteworthy fact that, taken In tho wholo, tho
pIuyerB have been vastly more of a credit to their game
than tho average of club owners. There are many high
types at the head of ball clubs, but we are now speaking
of the average run. And any sano movement which the
Players' Association makes toward uplifting the gamo
will meet with the sweoplng approval of tho public, no
matter what the upper mandarins have to say about it.
If any ball player had pulled one-tenth of the stuff
which Fogel and Murphy have put across, this player
long since would have been drlcn from the game Why
should those with power who are In more responsible
places be allowed to wreck a gamo In which their only
Interest Is the gate receipts?
If tho players are supposed to receive a good ex
ample from those on top of tho heap, suppose they start
in by Imitating Horace Fogel and Charley Murphy?
While this seems to be tile season of the Crimson

seen as yet any laurel drawn In by a certain vicinity
which first launched the era of red-legged toggery. It
will require something more than a landslide, apparent

YOU NEED S.S.S.
Every sufferer of Rheumatism needs S. S. S. because this great blood
Eurifier is a certain cure for the painful disease. Rheumatism is caused
y an excess of uric acid and other corrosive, irritating impurities ia
the blood, which ore carried through the circulation to the different
parts of the system. This acrid matter coats' the nerves, muscles and
joints with a fine, caustic deposit and the sharp cutting pains or dull,
constantaches are produced. S.S.S. cures Rheumatism because it is a
perfect blood purifier. It goes into the blood, neutralizes the acids, and
dissolves the irritating particles and forces them out of the system
through the natural excretory channels. Then all inflammation and
swelling subside, the pains and aches cease, and not only is Rheumatism
permanently cured, but under the tonic effects of S. S. S, the entire
health is benefitted and built up. S. S. S. reaches inherited cases as
bled with Rheumatism, try S. S. S. It cures where all other rcmcdic3
fail. Book oa Rheumatism and any medical advice free to all.
