Today when the Georgetown Univer

will wear the Blue and Gray In a
South Atlantic championship game.
Georgetown will be ready today to
show the experts of the South that we
have a real gridiron team up here on
the Hill, and we are going Into the
contest to establish our claim to the
South Atlantic championship.
So far we have outclassed the other
Southern teams which we have met.
and the entire team is confident of de
feating South Carolina and remove a
big obstacle betwen Georgetown and
The coaches and the entire squad at
Georgetown realize the strength of
the South Carolina team and we are
looking for the hardest game of the
season. Coach Exendlne has worked
hard during the past week in order to
have us ready for the battle today,
and although we expect victoy the
team is not overconfident.
The strength of the Virginia team is
pretty well known here and any club
that can battle the Charlottesville
tribe to a 15 to 0 score bears watching.
We will be out there watching them,
and I am sure that by nightfall
Georgetown will have another scalp
hanging at her) belt.

Mahan is the greatest football player In
the game today. In fact. I believe he Is
the greatest player the football world
has ever seen. Yale will watch this gen

that If they successfully handle Mahan,
the game Is almost won.
