Tho gaate WtM 00 loubt the hurdost fought and most. Interesting gam' that will eter ba staged in the conference ring ibis year. Both ten'rs were Aenl matched.

Th Stare in there and PRhting fro .1 tm n 0 1 and on two occasions '.13 1 :hc Hall township rqskri on tho oas vanl line, Had at oitber time the ball lwn tak en over by the visiting clui ad had the locals v. .kencd it linn tiiue, Spring VaH.'y would ha I won iho battle. (". n veral oth.r nc'lltiooi they (tore 'saltod on the Ottawa ten yard Hfe an I htte .oe i;anwi ended the Va'.'t ''in: ban p'.tei6loi '. the ball at local live yard line. Nestl, sensational riglit ball back tor the Valley eleven, proved the star for the visitors and at on" time gave local fans and members of the Otta-e wa team n horrible scare when he! raced through the Ottawa defense to sixty yards. He had carried the ball within eight yards of the Ottawa goal, and there his team lost, the pigskin, being unable to make that distance through the local line for a touch, I down. To Philip Bcfcaeb goes the honor of; winning the game for the Ottawa team. Schocb intercepted a b.rwatd; pass, meant for .Right Knd Mills, if the Valley team, and dashed lhroug.1 , a clear field for the first and rnly touchdown or the game. A fifteen yard run by 1 him netted the svoio and the win for the locals. Screen j went in shortly after the game start ed and proved a valuable man for the Smith machine. At various intervals be wa good for nice gains of from five to twenty-five yards. Captain Carey, also played a very, clever game, but as the result of a j squabble with Nesti, Valley right half, j he was ordered to leave the game dur- ing tho last ten minutes of play, at was His opponent. Besides those two men, every mem ber of the team played an exception ally good game. Nevertheless they showed many weak points which, it not corrected by the school mentor Immediately, will probably lose future games for them. For Instance, Smith's men are In need of hard and gruelling tackle practice. Saturday's game evidenced the fact that they tackle too high. As a result of this fault, the Spring Valley backfield men made good gains, after being touched or almost tackled by the locals. Smith's men would have made a bet ter showing had they made their tackles a little lower and not so lunch ground would have been cov ered by the visiting eleven. It was an easy matter for the Valley backs to squirm out of the hold of the lo cal tackier and line man and make an additional five or ten ya.rds. Then again, a stronger defense against forward passing by the oppos ing team should be developed. Smith's ends especially, despite the fact that they did muss up one or two of the aerial moves, showed poor afbility at that point, and allowed several nice ones to get away from them. Previous to the game a large string of Ottawa rooters carrying high school banners, ribbons, etc., marched through the loop district of the city. The Third Field artillery military band, made up of some of the officers and soldiers who are making the long bike from Camp Grant, 111., to Camp Knox, Ky . were present at the field and played various musical numbers.

All he asks is that Oiant pitchers giro him half a chance. The- liabe has been no great ehue ks as a world's series hitter, as he has made only one world's series hit, a triple which won a game for the Red Sox In 1918. However, those series were played before- Ruth discovered his remarkable power as a slugger. Eggs Are Good Imitations.
