WORDY WAR TO
STOP PLAN OF
Whitworth college and the
University of Puget Sound are
having a wordy war which keeps
them from making arrangements
for games at present, but which
will make the events a fight for
blood when the two do line up
against one another. U. P. S. has
the opinion that Whitworth is a
team of "pikers" because they
will not settle the controversy,
and Whitworth is not going to
have the amateur standing of the
players spoiled by playing against
men whom they charge with pro
fessionalism. Coach Ghormley of
Whitworth wants it understooj
that they want to play the U. P.
S., but not until the stand of pro
fessionalism has been wiped out.
Whitworth played no game Sat
urday, having met the alumni the
previous afternoon. U. P. S. Jour
neyed over to Seattle where she
was beaten by the state university
to the tune of 47 to 0. 'That is
not a bad beating at the hands of
the U. of W. and Is a lower score

nerve racked clans who were to
rise again to face the seventh

that someone must lose. Both
teams fought with so much cour

a partisan can say that either
team has shown an edge. Bos-
