HOLY CROSS AND BOSTON
COLLEGE ON EDGE
BOSTON, Dec. 9.?Holy Croes College la on the edge of a football
break with Boston College.
Bitterness at Holy Cross over the game won, IT to IS, by. Boston
College last Saturday, which has finally broken into open expression,
waa emphasized today by a statement of Ciao A. O'Donnell, graduate
teenager of Holy Cross athletic?.
According to O'Donnell, as related in a dispatch from Worcester,
Holy Cross may not play football against Boston College at all next
?fear. If there is a tame, it will be on Fitton Field, Worcester.
In other words, Holy Cross will not meet it* twenty-year football
rival except on the Purple's own territory.
Th? chief items Of complaint by
?? ?G Cro"?. *s exprewed by those
nigh in her athleUc councils, are
^That Referee A. E. Whiting (Cor
?eu) was Incompetent.
That Frank Reynold?, graduate
manager of Boston College, wa?
???? a telegram from' the cen
tral board of official? assigning
whiting to be field judge and Dr.
?VI ?. Sharps (Yale) to be referee.
That this telegram was not
riven out at the meeting of
?oaehea. captain? snd officials
Just before the game.
That many Boston College play
teg offence? were not ?eon. .
That Mahaney, ih? big Holy
Cross end, wa? put off the field tor
science not deserving expulsion.
That Holy Cross was given th?
official attendance at the game aa
only 29,152, whereas ths majority
of Boston newspapers, through their
football experta? ?atlmated the at
tendance at 40,000, making a dif
f?rence in gate receipts.
Worcester dispatches, after listing
the above grievances, said that
there was strong sentiment at Holy
Cross in favor of breaking football
relation? with Boston Collage It
Mal. Frank W. Cavanaugh, the
Idolised "Cav" of the Maroon snd
OoM, Is continued as Boston Col
lege football coach.
Boston College athletic author
it les, watts well aware now of the
feeling at Holy Cross, have yet
to take formal sctlon for tech of
any officisi statement from ths
?frank Reynold?, graduate man
ager of athletic? for the Maroon and
Cold, was told that a man close to
Holy Cross athletics had made a
statement of grievance?. Reynold?
"Th? artici? win be given due
consideration at the proper tune
and credential? will be submitted to
The graduate board of Boston
College met but refused to discus?
the situation until a more formal
and official atatament of Holy Croes
protest was forthcoming.
This 1922 game, which reeulted In
such bitterness at Holy Cross, was
bitterly fought. Each college had
won nine game? In nineteen years
with one tie. Th? team? were re?
gnrded as evenly matched. Thl?

Former National A. A. U.
Champion Appliee for
Decidedly Interesting 1? th? an?
Bounoement that Abe Kiviat, former
National a A. 17. champion and
preeent American record holder for
1,(00 meters, who baa been out of
competition for seven years, has
decided to essay a "comeback" this
He was undecided about trying to
race again when he applied for re
instatement In the A. A. tl., but
?iter training tor three weeks he Is
convinced that he can regain his
former speed and stamina and hold
his own with the present-day run
ners st distanc?e from the halt
mile to two miles.
The former Irish-American A. C.
atar has applied for registration in
th? Metropolitan Association of the
A. A. U. and will compete for the
Wllco ?. ?.. of Which organisation
?s has been a member for two
year?, and on whose basketball
team he has starred during the
past two season?.
It will be at the games of the
Wllco ?. ?.. st the Ut h Regiment
Armory, Brooklyn, on February 10,
that he will ?tag? hi? "comeback"
attempt, and if he continues to Im
prove ss hs has during ths past
few weeks he will probably match
his speed and endurance with the
country's best runner? In th? Olym
pia 2.000 meter race, which ha?
been one of th? big feature? of the
Wllco gamee for th? last few year?.
Th? question which will naturally
?rise Is whether Kiviat, after being
out nf competition for seven year?,
can regain hi? one? great form,
gao?a and endurance.
Th? leading athletic experts who
have discussed this phass of his
attempted "comeback'' are about
equally divided on the ?ubject.

MURRAY SNOW IS LEADING
By R. D. THOMAS.
While the football experts condemn the naming of all-star teams as
a foolish piece of business and then name them, anyway, it is almost
pardonable to ?ingle out for distinction just one player on Washington
The chap thus doubtfully honored is Big Murray Snow, fullback,
tutor, brains and soul of the young Southern Athletic Club, which- this
Season haa played the cleveresyfootball shown by teams in the champ
ionship competition. ,
Albert A. Esondine, ingenious coach of Georgetown's varsity, will
back up that broad statement. For the first time in his football
career, Exsndine went out this season to siso up the sandlottere, and
learned that honest-to-goodnees football is played outside of schools

with which they executed shift
After Southern'? game with the
Mohawk?, which the latter won, S
