Relative Football Values Not Revealed by Score Comparisons

Established by Strength
of Opposition.
EW YORK. Nov. 20 —The fer
vor. the fever and even thi

emotional, minus- any touch of reason
You may get this only in your owr

square miles of football territory. Yei
If you look over the various schedule:
you will see why there are no supei
teams, no national champions, no out
standing monopolies of glory. Sched

Let's take two of the country':

14 points against California alone
And California couldn't score oi
Pittsburgh spent 119 nunutes with
out scoring on Duquesne and Poi dhan
on successive Saturdays. Yet Texa
Tech beat Duquesne. 13 to 0. Pitts
burgh went 90 minutes against Notr*
Dame and Nebraska without scorinj
In the first three periods of each game
California and Pittsburgh are men
tioned because they are rated the tw*
strongest teams. On these two team:
Goldberg. Matisi, Souchak, Chapman

If this were true they should win al
their games, 30 to 0, or 40 to 0.

You Can Prove Anything.
'pHOSE who keep mailing n.e in
comparative scores to prove theii
point are requested to examine the fol
, lowing statistics, furnished by George
Hmgston, which finish more than 30C
points apart around two teams—Yale
and Fordham—which are as good a-<
any teams I've seen, not even barring
the Minnesota team of 1936:

Score Comparisons Futile.
THIS shows you how comparativ
scores, involving two of our be*
teams, can finish 366 points apart.
Any team that has won four har
games and lost two deserves a bette
rating than a team that has won foe
hard games and played only set-up
on the side.
This point doesn’t even admit of a
argument. For, in the softer schedule
you can rest your men and bring thei
back to top form.

Gallop That Was Instrumental in Central’s Conquest of Manual Trainers

Central, Conqueror of Tech,
Traces Title Flop to Lacing
By Team of Own Coach’s Pal
SMOOTHEST eleven ill the series,
for one day. Central today per
formed an autopsy on its foot
ball season and decided a close
, friendship possibly robbed it of the
interhigh championship. For Coach
Hardy Pearce of Central feels his pal
of some years standing. Coach Johnny
, Baker of Washington-Lee High, is re
sponsible for the Columbia Heights
contingent finishing second.
Central unveiled vicious precision
yesterday in disposing of Tech, 13-7,
at Central Stadium, before 4 000 spec
tators, resembling a completely dif
ferent outfit from the club that had i
stumbled through four previous series
j games unimpressively.
Coach’ Careers Parallel.
L?OR the first time in some weeks.
Central was fit physically and
mentally. That 26-6 walloping the
i Little Generals had dealt it early in
| the season is blamed for Central's
slowness in reaching its peak. And,
ironically, it was administered by a
club coached by Pearce's best friend.
Pearce and Baker played high school. I
i junior college and collegiate football
together and later married sisters,
j which gives some idea.
Despite the soggy turf and a steady
j rain. Centrals attack functioned
smoothly for the first time this season,
j The underdog Blue eleven easily might
I have increased its margin and its su- 1
periority hardly is told in the figures.
i Following an exchange of punts, [
Central pushed 45 yards downfleld in j
j the first quarter, with Lou Chacos’ end
sweeps featuring the drive. Chacos'
smacked right guard to score, but
Bobby Goldsworthy, whose punts were
a vital factor in Central's triumph, was
low and wide on drop-kick for the
extra point.
Rassier Makes Long: Run.
I gACKED to its own 18-yard linej
early in the third period. Tech*
struck sharply when Henry Rassier'
sliced off left tackle, eluded four tac
klers and streaked 82 yards for a
touchdown. Jack Belote sent Tech into
the lead by adding the extra point
from placement.
Central retaliated with the game
winning touchdown a moment later,
however, when Bill Ickes, Central's;
most consistent ground gobbler, ripped
through left guard, shook off two tac
klers and raced 28 yards to score.
Benny Steiner drop-kicked the extra j
Charley Jones, whose defensive play j
in backing up Central's line has been |
the outstanding feature of the series,
again performed smoothly, but the
major portion of glory in the thirty
fifth annual schoolboy rivalry goes to
the hard-hitting Ickes.

After Sound Beating He

Associated Press Sports Writer.
NEW YORK. Nov. 20—There was
a feeling in informed circles
around here today that Lou
Ambers, the lightweight box
ing champion, would keep his title only
so long as he managed to stay out of
the same ring with Henry Armstrong.

knockout over Billy Beauhuld, a useful

disputed possession of the feather title,
weighed 132 last night, and the little
Negro appeared to revel in the extra
poundage. Beauhuld, 2 pounds heavier,
made a courageous effort to hold off
his opponent's savage onslaughts, and
he gave the crowd its money’s worth,
but he never had a chance of going
the route.
Before last night the boys hadn't
been quite convinced that Armstrong
could take it. They knew he could
hand it out. but his string of knock
outs had been a little too reminiscent
of Joe Louis’ triumphant surge before
he ran into Max Schmeling.

Poe, Harrison in Play-Off for
Laurels—MacKenzie 7
Behind Leaders.
By W. R. McCALLl’M,
S aU Correspondent of The Ster.
INEHURST, N. C., Nov. 20 —
America's trouping golf pro
fessionals set forth from Pine
hurst today for the Southern
tournaments with a brace of new
threats to the older headliners of
golf. Two slim young professionals,
who outstripped one of the finest fields
ever to gather for the mid-South pro
tourney, were playing off today their
tie for the title while their associates
pushed farther South with the $10,000
Miami-Biltmore open their ultimate
Henry Clay Poe. lithe 21-year-old
youngster from Greensboro. N. C,
playing in his first open tournament,
and slender E. J Harrison of Little
Rock. Ark , who hasn't been out of
the amateur ranks so long, tied for
the Mid-South crown at 142, leading
twoscore of the top pros of America
to the wire. Both Poe and Harrison
plan to play the tournament circuit,
and again Pinehurst lives up to its
reputation of uncovering new stars.
For years the headliners of American
pro golf first have proven themselves
at Pinehurst. and perhaps Poe and
Harrison are the coming open cham
pions of a few years hence. They
have proven they have the game over
this testing course. And if they can
do it here they can do it in Miami
and Los Angeles and Surry-on-the
Thames on wherever the pros gather
for the heavy dough.

tournament make Roland Mac

he can't make expenses on the win

Roland finished at 149. seven shots

almost daily. "These fellows haven't
anything that I don’t have.” said
Roland as he and the missus prepared
their trailer for a fast trip to Jack

delegation in the tourney with his
twin rounds of 76 and 73. Leo Wal

for 156, and George Diffenbaugh.
starting with a 78, withdrew on the
second round.
Outside of Poe and Harrison the
main sensation of the tourney was
the ace scored on the 185-yard sev
enteenth hole by Leon Pettigrew
and the sensational finish of Tony
Manero, the 1936 open champion
Pettigrew’s ace didn't help him much,

'T'ONY was playing with Walper. anc
I walked up to him on the four
teenth green to inquire about Leon
He wasn't so gdod. "How about you
Tony?” I asked. "I’ve just taken
three 5s in a row to go 3 over par,’
he said. “But I’m going to finish
with at least two birdies. You watch.’
He barely mused his putt for a bird
2 at the fifteenth, ho got an eagle 3
at the par 5 sixteenth, and he canned
a 6-footer for a deuce at the seven
teenth, finishing with a par 4 for a
72 and 144.
“That guy has plenty of stuff be
hind the belt buckle,’’ said Paul Run

I know who is willing to bet fairly
good money—at odds, of course—that
he can win a tournament. .The true
story of the open championship last
year is that when Tony found he was
quoted on the board at 40 to 1 he
took $60 worth of it. With the thou
sand he collected Jot winning and
the gambling pay-off he did pretty
well. He has plenty of nerve in a
finish and all the golf shots a cham
pion needs.”

/CHAMPAIGN. 111., Nov. 20 <A»>.
i —Ben Crackel, groundkeeper
of Memorial Stadium, hopes he'll
be able to let Chicago and Illinois
play football today.
The field is fast and dry. but
here's what is worrying Crackel:
It's covered with a $10,000 tar
paulin, which yesterday’s storm
covered with about 4 inches of
snow. A slight thaw, followed by
a cold wind, froze edges of the
"blanket” to the ground.
Crackel vows he'll have the tar
paulin elsewhere by game time,
even if he has to recruit the play
ers and arm them with ice picks.
