Far-Fetched Comparative Scores
Make High School Retrer
If a comparison of football scores
really counted for anything. Rock Is
land by defeating St. Ambrose on j
Thanksgiving day, could lay claim to
the championEhip of the west, provided
also that Mincecota is accorded the
conference title as seems likely. The ,
lice of reasoning is this: Rock Island
defeats St. Ambrose and St. Ambrose
defeated Dixon normal, Dixon normal
defeated DePaul by a more decisivt j
score than did Marquette university e?
Milwaukee and Marquette won from
South Dakota university by a larger .
score and more decisive score than did ;
Minnesota university. Therefore Rock
Island, by defeating St. Ambrose of!
course, win have a team that on com-'
partive scores is stronger that Minne
sota. Showing how much compara-,
tive scores far-fetched are worth.

ily into the discard last night when
Carl Morris, at one time the most
hopeful of the "hopes," battered Den
ver Jack Geyer into a state of hope
lessness in nine rounds at the Olympic

so,e!y on bru:o strecth and his awk-
wardness helped materially in Geyer's
downfall. Morris was flaying away
with might and main while Geyer was
helpless on the ropes in the ninth
round, and Referee Charley White hu
manely interceded and stopped the
slaughter. Morris showed u decided
improvement over his first perform
ance here, when he was beaten to a
pulp by Jim Flynn. He showed that
be was better able 'o protect himself.
His a:tack was faster than in the Flynn
fi;.;ht and he landed his blows with
