FOOTBALL SCOUTS NOW AS COMMON AS IN BASEBALL IN FORMER YEARS HIS DUTY WAS A DIFFICULT ONE. TOY LAND ::at:: 1 Boston Store His Duty is to Ferret Out Plays to Be Used by Enemy. Hasehall scouts have for many years been on" of the most important assets belonging to the great American na tional game, hut it has only been within the last few years that the foot ball scout has come into prominence. Unlike the baseball scout, the football stout does not go about the country trying to discover star players. In stead, bta duty Is to learn the style of play used by teams vhi h his own eleven Is scheduled to play, and then Import the Information to his own players Almost all the larger schools and colleges have adopted the si ting system. VVhi never a team of any standing plays, P is practically as sured that some rival on the gridiron has at least one man versed In the garni- present to pick Bp anything that may inip the said rival In the game to be played later In the season. In the old days the life of the foot' I all scout was to certain extent dan gerous. If caught taking notes on some team's formation he was In for a general heating If be did not pos sess the speed to make a clean get u way. N'.ov conditions have changed. The different teams have come t expect that their rivals will have them watch ed. Tor that reason the coaches In struct their Quartern not to use any more variety of nlav than is needed to win. At the big games, where it is practically sure that a team will have to use everything they have in order to eOBM out at the game with a sic tory. five or six schools are liable fe have soouta present. These scouts are not p-one to mnke themaalrea very prominent when in the enemies' camp. The fear tlvit the prat ti es af the olden days may aualli be used getierallv 1 ails Ihem to keep as much in the background possible.

The certainty of the passage of the conference rub' allow ing liPersectlonal games will give the MldwnylteB a chance to lake OB OPT nell again and dispense with the bur den of a Oopher battle If necessary. Coach Stagg declare,1 that a game with Wireonsln was a certainty, and it seems likely that the Pudger-Mar a affair will be the llggll conference game of the season at Marshall fi '.1 next season.
