REQUISITES FOR SUCH TEAM They Should Comprise Speed, Weight and Grit?Men Select? ed and Reasons'Therefor.' (Spccla/I to The Times-Dispatch.) .RALEIGH, N. C, Dec. 10,-Mr. W. 8. Keinholz, ex-Minnesota,, 1000, coach for the Agricultural and Mechanical College, has this to suy In regard to an nil-South? ern foot-ball team. Tho task of making up an "All-South? ern" team le (nig too,largo for any one man, as tho South Is loo. largo nnd has too many good foot-ball .men. to como under the critic's eye in one season, but as 1 have been asked for my opinion'I shall attempt an "All-Suuthorn" team as far as this section Is concerned. Before suggesting such a team I would state ? flint such a selection should be made from men that would do tho best work as a team in caso they were called upon to play. What docs this mean? It means that every man must not only bo a good offensive player, but a superb man on defense. This team must ? bo a combination of speed, weight und grit. There are many essentials that should be mentioned here, such as running low and hard, bowling down men, helping, tackling and hend work, but s paco will not permit ma to enter this great field. For left end 1 should take Townsend, of North Carolina University, as my choice. His blocking on offense and vicious brook? ing ftp Interference on offense and tack? ling on defense, besides being wonder fully fast, makes him tho most apt man. He lacks In weight, but has all tho btner essentials, of a good end. ? , For left tackle I will take as my choleo Gardner, of Agricultural and Mechanical College. His weight of 220 pounds, com? bined with his great speed and grit, be? sides his long experience In foot-ball, ' makes him a superb man for tho place. 11-16 is wonderfully strong on the defense and carries the brill well on offense. For left guard 1 shall select Mahoney, of Georgetown. Mahoney played at left tackle, but as tho guard material this sea? son warf decldoly weak, Ma honey's ability as a lino man would enable him to step In this place and strengthen a line that would otherwise bo weak. Ho is not only a great defensive player, but carries the ball splendlily, and could be drawn from the Hilft to advance the ball. At center wo -have a number of good men. Captain Stewart, of North Caro? lina; divans, of Georgetown; Stylos, of the. Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and Dykes, of tho Agricultural and Mechan? ical College, are all splendid men. The choice, however, would Ho between Stew? art, of North Carolina, and Givens, of Georgetown. On account of his consist? ency In playing, his line physical condi? tion and the inspiration to his fellow team males, .I-shall se.leut Stewart. - At right guard I again have trouble. Considering carefully, I should 1111 this P'jsiUoa with " Brai(eh Johnson, of ^Vir? ginia, altliough 1 lind Wilson;'of the Vir? ginia Polytechnic Institute, a close sec? ond. Johnson has been playing a good center for Virginia this season, but has played guard also with great success. Ills ability as a lino man, both on tho offense and d?fense, Is tbo great to keep him off tills team. This guard position being weak, would be greatly strength? ened with his presence. At right tackle I- find no trouble. Coun? cil, of Virginia, stands in a class by him? self and deserves tho position undlspu tably. At right end my choleo ls> Arthur Wil? son, of tho Agricultural and Mechanical College. His weight of I'M) pounds, con? nected with his wonderful speed and foot? ball sense, makes him a powerful end. Ho Is a Hiiro tackier, covers puts well, a great ground gainer and a conscientious trainer. Ho can ploy any position In the back Held, and could be drawn back of the line to advance the ball or do the punting. The position of right halfback is well filled by Carpenter, of North Carolina. Ho is a tremendous -man, both on offense and defense, and '.'deserves great credit for Ills phenomenal work during the sea? son, considering that every opposing team were watching his powerful movements. He would be selected to do tho kicking. Tho position of left halfback lies bo tweoii Hart, of Georgetown, and John? son, of Virginia. Both have dono splen? did work, but considering thoN number uiul the calibre of the games, Hurt would bo given the place. Hurt played at right half this Benson, but Is able to play left half Just- as well. As fullback 1 consider Captain Abcr nethy. of Agricultural and Mechanical College; Martoll of Georgetown, rind Robei'son, of University of North Caro? lina, are excellent men, On uccount of weight and speed', besides wonderful lino bucking ability, Abornothy would be first choice, lie is a superb man on the of fonbo, either in straight or shift forma? tions, running low and hard with tho ball and bowling down men well as un These Are" Our Pianos STEINWAY, KiiNbc, Weber, H^rdman, KIMBALL, Wheelock, Standard, Haines.
