Earle. as you will regall wasn't licked at all; in fact, his teau outplayed the Pacific wonders be tween all the whistles, and only the breaks of the game prevented a few Eastern touchdowns. Greasy had a fat and smart feebail team last year. an outfit that was never beatn, and showed a mere varied game than any other eleven, 'ke It from the be wh saw most of them. His athl _ everything ts it tle bit thelse, They showed splend coaching. which reflected much credit en the hero of ear essay. Neale is junking his own stufi when he admits that the flying end play should be abolished. The "Pres. idents" had that play, with a va riety of changes, as no other tearr had. Three or four of the W. and J powerful stars alternated far out on the winks, and spent pleasant after noons Lowling over hostile tackles and guards. The team worked a crisscrosi from the formation, on both sides of the line, and generally had the op position higher in the air than the custom house tower. The first-time this play was tried against Cal. fornia It gained sixty-eight yards, .ind It was a constant asset, as well as threat, all through the pastime. Still the coach, who is sensible and strong for the big college game admits that the one-man-in-motior isn't at all fair to the defensive team, and consequently should go Into the scrap heap. It will rob his own attack of a lot of power. but that's nothing to him. He will dig up something else jusi as good, being that sort of a bird Neale didn't originate the play-it was either Foster Sanford or Bill Roperd. He picked it up watching Lehigh. adoped it. and put a whole lot of new stuff into it. Regarding the scrimmage, rather than the touchdown goal, Coach Neale doesn't think it will make much difference. "Trying a simaewill pa a litle competition In the pas t that meas a game," he explned. "Mest of the teams will undsbt edly try the short dkik, and gt alnost as good reuts as freom free placement kick. But It won't be aD kieking. A team that tried nothing else woald soon have elevn men en the defensive side piling In to bury the kicker. He weuld have a tough life. "Teams with good drop-kickers will have the advantage hut a gal from that distance isn't so hard and a coach can school a man al year just for use in an emergency that may mean a game. The free kick didn't give the team scored or any chance at all, and that's hardly according to the spirit of the game The new plan should work out very satisfactorily." Coach Earle is very strong fo: the spirit the college athletes dim play, and claims that If ball club went after games with the same de termination and fight that the grit stars do, the game would spruce ui quite a bit. "Some clubs," he announces "have that spirit. And they go oul and win pennants. There's a whol. lot to saying: 'A team that won't be "llcked, can't be licked.' -It makes i fellow proud to have a gang of k*g go In there and fight their yern heads off, just to make good foi him. That's why coaches get ex cited and steamed up at times. "They get the same feeling as the youn fellows, and feel defeat just as bal.

Vern few bell players, who take good car. of themselves, spend much time or the bench, for the same reason. "In our three big games last msi son we made only four substitution. and only one of them for a really In jured player. Any good team Is a tough team."

The rich can go to their Palm Beach show And drift down South in cars or boats, But I loaf on the farm and nurse my arm. Guys like me is the goats! I wish that I was a lawyer guy, Or a doctor writing prescriptions now. Or a movie star in a high-priced car, Or a farmer milking a Jersey cow, Or a shoveling Harp, or a gospel sharp, Or a banker surrounded by treasury notes. When winter comes they klon't feel like bums Guys like me is the goats! When Winter Comes. EW baseball players, during their active diamond years, mak much of a showing at an winter tasks or trades which they ma undertake, and this is not so strange as it might seem at firs thought. Any baseball player who is of big-league caliber Is so wrapped ul in his one profession, baseball, that he cannot find time and patieno to do justice te any other work in which he may engage during the off months. Big-league baseball players thing about baseball all the time. They cannot put it out of their minds when they put awa: their "apangles" in the fall. Just as lawyers and doctors remain law ers and doctors while on their vacations, baseball players remal bseball players while they are snowed in during January. We are of the opinion that the average big-league pl'ayer does full year's work in the six months from May to October. He burn up as much energy in that time as the average professional mai burns up In a year. If he were to engage in any difficult ments labor during the winter months he would have a headache all summner except on his paydays. A p layers active baseball years are few enough at best, and dur ing those years he need not chafe at the forced inaction of the short cold winter days. There will be time enough for him to work th year round when his playing skill ha. vanished. 52-Year-Old Athlete IdaaBsbl u to Compete in Hub~f oorwo Road RaceTurtJan BOSTON, Mass., March 28.- BOMNTN i. ac One of the contestants In the 2.Oeofte"iTn"o Boston Athlesie Association's frnebsbl em hc American Marathon race on Pa- wl o ese nato I h triots' Day, April 19, will be MideWsthsprnsIte Al Monte~erde, of Moorestown, IdaaUiest ie hc N.
