Coaching Develop 'IVani.
."ince 1910 .South Bend' reputation
in football has gradually increased afl
the result of efficient coaching. J. B.
Miller, physical director of the Y. M.
C A. has donated his services to the
high school football and basketball
teams for several years and has made
successes of both. Metzler, another
graduate of the .Springfield. Mass., Y.
M. C. A. Training school, took up the
football work where Miller left off

school hours to development of the

school team ever seen in this section
of the state, lie himself, was a star
halfback at Springfield.
Metzler found his material to be
light but extremely fast. He has
worked on that basis and the tan and

in good stead. All the hacks are good

Locals Spring Surprise by
Holding Powerful Downstate
Football Players to Close
Score Halves Are Missing.
The Huebner football eloven sur
prised even its most loyal adherents

ciation team to a standstill yesterday
afternoon at .Springbrook park, the
downstaters winning after a hard
fought battle by 12 to 10. Two Wa
bash stars were out of the game K.
Yarnelle and McKinney. Ideal weath
er conditions prevailed and over 1,200
football fans watched the game.
Vargo, the brilliant Hue-bner half
back was the principal factor In the
local's plucky fight against the fa
mous blue and white eleven. His
punting far outclassed that of "Red"
Milliner, while he scored the Hueb
ner's first three points with a drop
kick from the 40 yard line. He also
scored their only touchdown.
Adams and (iurtiicr Stnr.
Adams, full back, and Gurtner. left
half, were the principal ground gain
ers for the visitors. Both showed fin
ished form in line plunging and open
field running. Forward parses were
employed frequently and while many
worked the majority wefe intercepted
or incompleted. Reno, the best pass
receiving end of Wabash, was out of
the game in the first few minutes of
play by a hard tackle and Milliner
was unable to work the pass effectiye
ly. The veteran quarterback and cap
tain of the blue and white failed to get
away on his customary runs around
the end, his longest gain being not
over six yards while he was frequent
ly thrown for a loss.
Play zizagged throughout the game
with possession of the ball about even
ly divided. Both teanv were forced
to punt often with Vargo outdistanc
ing Milliner nvuiy yards. Much fum
bling was evident, particularly in re
ceiving punts.

Wabash kicked off to the Huebners
and Lander man carried the ball five

The Huebners were in thr visitor's;
territory most of the remainder of the
first quarter and Vargo's two trials
for field coals wer blocked. Once
the Huebners worked the ball within
10 yards of the visitor's goal in an cx-
hange of punts and several penan-
zations for offside play on waoasn.
The latter held at crucial moments
in the laM minute ot th quarter

line. A forward pass failed.
