OF MEDICAL COLLEGE
Sporting Editor Times-Dispatch:
Dear Sir.?The article appearing In
your columns under date of November
I from Blacksburg. Vs.. reporting the
College of Virginia, does "the Utter
school g great injustice.
The article states that the 'Visitors
from Richmond presented an all-star
team, composed of ex-college and duo
playera" This sentence is aMaaMattk?
and partially incorrect There are no
"club players" on the eleven, presum?
ing that ws interpret "club players"
as meaning men who hare played on
some athletic club eleven. I
There are a number of az-coUsgs I
men on the team, but it would bo pec- j
tieally impossible to put eat an eleven ?
without such men. for moat medical!
students are graduates of. or have at
least attended, other Institutions in I
order to acquire the required prelim-1
laary education necessary for the study!
of medicine. Teams who take on med- 1
leal college elevens know this Just as
they know that man playing on the
Carlisle Indian team do not conform to
the usual rules governing intercolle?
These facts being known before the
games are arranged. It seems un?
sportsmanlike to make excuses after
the game ia played. These remarka
do not apply to the student body nor
to the coach at V. P. I., for they took
their defeat at the bands of at C V.

we have nothing bat praise tar their
To one reading the article in ques?
tion who did not use the game, it
would appear that the scoring dons
by k C V. was of the most "flaky"
charactei, when, as a matter of fact,
both scores were made by superior
playing*. The forward pass that the
Techs attempted la the second halt
"that resulted In a Held goal" for
M C- V.. waa attempted on their sixty
yard Una, ana Brockwsll, ear left
guard, intercepted the ball and dsshed
off for twenty-five yards before being
, downed. In three more rushes the ball
waa advanced to their fifteen-yard line,
I where the goal waa made.
It ia also made to appear that
Medico fell on the ball behind Techa'
I goal line as a result of a "Substituts"*"
missing a single, when, as a matter ot
fact, he fell on the ball, regained bis
: feet and rushed off ten yards to the
goal. The touchdown that they claim?
ed should have been allowed was made)
on what the umpire (a V. P. 1. man) [
claimed waa an legal forward pans.
In regard to our goal being In dan?
ger "four or five times.'' I notice that
the article failed to mention that we
got suspiciously near Teicha* goal on
several occasions. It also tailed to
mention that we gained more ground
exciuaive of mlecuee than they did.
If wo bad been outplayed and then'
have won the game by a series ot

ground for complaint about the write
