McKMf.HT DALLAS. Dec. 9. OP)—Twenty years ago curly-thatched, young Ray Morrison gathered 25 gangling huskies around him, issued the nose and shin guards, and football was born on the Southern Methodist campus. It was a weak Infant that Morri son, fresh trom quarterbacking the Vanderbilt University Commodores, struggled with through a six-game schedule. And just one year later—the 1916 season Southern Methodist fans would rather not mention — the foundling cf the school’s sports pro cram was almost fatally lniured. It was struck by s thunderbolt at Houston—thunderbolt masquer ading in Rice Institute football to»s. The big game between the Metho dists ana the Institute attracted a Saturday afternoon throng of about 500 persons. Hie Institute kicked off 2nd in a twinkling the Methodists tallied. One Sam Merrill lofted a mighty dropkick through the cross Oar and the Methodists led 3-0. The Institute took the next kick off and as one sports chronicler re lates “started sweeping end runs” They swept and swept—to 22 touch downs Any SMt’ Fan* Present? Final score: Rice 145.

The Amateur Athletic Union of the United States emerged Monday from the bitterest battle of its 47 year history, on record as support ing full American participation in the 1935 Olympic games in Ger many. but with the war by no means ended. Although Irrevocably pledged to go through with the American | Olympic program, the A. A. U. nevertheless remained wide open by an issue that is still very much alive, stirred by religious as well as racial controversy. It threatens to curtail sharply this country's part; in the eleventh Olympiad. Proof was promptly forthcoming that neither oratorical guns nor be.llots killed off the m .in issue Sunday, when the closing session of the A. A. U. convention turned down 54 1-4 to 55 3-4 a compromise proposal to send a fact-finding commission of three men to Ger many before going ahead with American plans to compete. Subsequent unopposed adoption of a resolution supporting the Olympics, qualified only by a strong denunciation of the nazi govern ment’s athletic policies, merely widened the breach within the ranks of A. A. U. delegates. Jeremiah T. Mahoney of New York, who yielded the A. A. U. presidency to Avery Brundage of Chicago, head of the American Olympic committee, after witness ing the defeat of all his efforts to keep the organization out of the Olympics, declared in effect that he has "just begun to fight " •Afraid to Face Facts* Resigning from the Olympic executive committee. Mahoney said he would continue "the fight against American participation in the games in Germany • • • as the only way of preserving the Olvmpic 1 ideal.” He charged the American Olympic committee was at raid to "face the facts concerning existing conditions in Germany and called for undi minished opposition to holding the games under nazi auspices. Brundage. restored to dual lead ership as the most powerful figure in American amateur sport after a year’s interval, hailed the outcome of the A. A. U. battle as a “victory for the amateur athletes of Amer- . lea." The Chicagoan, a former national all-around athletic champion, im mediately called for “full-speed ahead" in a drive to have the United States fully represented in both the winter and summer Olympics. Brundage conceded that the1 financial condition of the American i Olympic committee, which seeks $300,000 for maximum representa tion In Germany, is “desperate.” He outlined to the executive committee of the A. O. C. last night his proposals for a nation wide drive to raise funds and to offset the expected non-coopera tion of those antagonistic to Ger ms ny. Meanwhile, most of the particip ants pirked for the winter Olympic snores are arranging successfully to finance themselves. For Ftwtr Colds..

The Christians wanted to play lut the Methodists clung to their loifeit and the victory at least went town In the oooks. The Mustangs lost one game in 1918, Texas licking them. 32-0. The sparkplug of the team was Quarter back Jimmy Kitts, now head coacn of the powerful Rice Institute Owls.
