3 one bit, but I have
' heard fellows whose favorite team
, happened to loso a game argue un']
til'they were blue In the face that
1 their team really won, by reason
of the fact that they made more
? first downs or gained more yartki
J* from scrimmage or completed more
y forward passes. Two. first downs
J are worth more than three dozen
J If the two first downs bring the
" winning touchdowns, and . any
? number of completed forward
j passes that don't cut any figure In
11 the score mean nothing. When
two teams play a football game,
* the team that gets the most points
11 wins, and that was the only argua
ment In first place. Yon can't
erase a touchdown with first downs
? that brought only exorcise for the
? players. It's juct the same as. a
? baseball game where a team
? makes a flock of hitB and no nins
t to speak of, while the opposition
> gets only a few hits, but plenty
9 enough runs to win the game. So
i. far as J am concerned when the
e game is over, all I am interested
in is the final result, because that's
!- what you come back to eventually,
t pven if you run your brain ragged
a trying to find solace in the statin*
i- tic?. But then there are thousands
. and thousands who just love to
o draw pictures of what might have
- been, and so these little odds and
a ends have to be taken into account

The Greatest Play.
The serlCB of stories running

tho greatest plays in football,
viewed by a number of promini
coaches, put mo to thinking I;
night of some of the high spots

plays stand out prominently In
the ones -Ihayo glimpsed. One e
the dash through .the entire F
team last year by George 'Hill

tackle by "Chalky" Williams
playing for Pitt against Penn Sti
In tbe Turkey Day game betwe
the two teams in 1912 or 1913,
1 recollect. The game -Was play
on a rain-soaked field, and t
rain- came down steadily
through the game. Peiin Sti
scored early In the contest, 1
tailed to kick the goal after ton
down. Just before the end of t
first half. Pift had the -ball oh th
own ton or fifteen yard play.

Come'On, Judge,
on Judge Scott Lowe was debating
in yesterday, whether or not to go to
Charleston (or the Wash-Lee game
Saturday. Judge Lowe complained
-j, that he was really too busy to take
? the time off. I suggested to him
,et that no royal rooter like himseK
j|] should ever allow himself to get so
h. entangled in business during the
,iB football season that he couldn't
1W call Saturday his own, and Friday,
,' too, when' trips demand that one
leave Fridp.y for a Saturday game,
'to He has promised 1,0 think the mat.a.
ler over caroftilly, and I trust I
will see his smiling countenance
on the Huntington sleeper when it
_. pull? out of Clarksburg tomorrow
afternoon. Judge Lowe said he
' never saw, a better or^moro ogcltJ
ing combat- than the one at Forbes
,? Field last Saturday, and probably
h never will sec one any better.

Assistant Cohcb Day Is the only
person who has seen the Generals
In action this year but he learned;
little because several players he
knew to he regulars were kept on
the sidelines all during the game,
which was a minor engagement.
"They look good to me," he said
today, "but it's hard to tell just
how strong they are when Coach
DeHart has the full strength on'
the field."

The team will leave Bothany at
