New York, Nov. 29. (By the As sociated Tress.) The' 1922 gridiron season, ending this week with the few collegiate contests scheduled Thanksgiving day and Saturday, will go down In the annals notonlv h nniuuDie ior spectacular up sets in form, but outstanding in un usual scoring achievements and in cidents. So far S3 renresenutiva colleges scored exactlv 11.000 ' points in t3i contests, an average of about 133 points per team and 19 points per game. California's eleven stands out as the highest powered scoring ma chine in the group with 398 points, and only 34 tallied against tbem. Auburn, in the south, showed the highest total, 277; Cornell set the pace in. tne east, with 330, while Centre, with 254. and Nebraska with 262, were leaders In the middle- Michigan and Notre Dame per mitted the fewest points scored against any team on the list; 13, tho Wolverines allowing two touch downs while tho Hoosiers held op- juuouia m am toucaaowa and two fleld goals. Twenty-seven contests ended In ties, of which 10 were scoreless. In Ave others the margin 'of victory wm one neiQ goai, tne only score of the game, while in two Instances a safety resulted in trlumnh i cores of 2 to 0. F Proof of the important nar nlmv- d by the new "try tor point after touchdown" was that nine games were aeaaea ny a single point.

It is de sired to have the question settled one way or another before Moline's delegates leave to attend the big gathering. There is enough sentiment in Mo line to bring that city Into the Mississippi Valley league. The men who have been active in Moline baseball for years are satisfied that the' city must come down a peg or two, the same as Rock Island, if the game is to continue at all. At present they are in the minority, but hope is held out that ttf- ex perience will be accepted at its true value .by the majority in time to give the city, a chance to apply for a franchise.

" Fill AL CATTLE F0.USUOERS TO OE SPEEDY Three of Locals' Best Men Kay Sot Be to Lineup Against La gall Peru Toatorrew. - BY HAT GEISMAE. " The grand finale of the Rock Is land high school football season will be pulled off tomorrow at La Salle where the Rock Island grid men will do battle with the La Salle-Peru community high school in what probably' will be the hardest fought game of the season. La Salle, one of the strongest I teams in that section of the state," is a worthy opponent for any team and the locals will have their hands full in the closing affair. Both teams have been defeated by Moline, the Crimsbn falling by the wayside 10 points more than the La Salle squad didT However, the Rock Island-Moline game was play ed with the Islanders in far from good condition. As the battle hour approaches the Islanders' chances"-f or having a full lineup in the game is consid erably dimmed. Alvine will not be in a suit and Captain Hall and Reid may be forced to sit .on the side- lines because or difficulties witn their studies. It is hoped that these two can arrange, their affairs so that they may be able to play in the last game. The last struggle of the year .will find many of the local men per forming for the last time in a Rock Island uniform. . Hall, Alvine, Mager, Ash, Crompton, Ekholm, Ramser, Hollingsworth, Tiner and Anderson will finish their football career with this game, and al though this a great number of let ter men to lose, the team will be fairly well fortified with, old vet erans when the call .conies forth next season. The Crimson and Gold will face a backfleld tomorrow that -is prob ably one of the fastest they have metthis year. The La Salle outfit is fast and their ball carriers are the speediest of the crew. In Captain Haase, the community high school has a pilot and speeds ter that has but few equals in the high school field today. Last year he raced 70 yards for a touchdown against Moline, outstepping , tne whole Swede outfit with ease. Fraxio, who holds down the full- Daek position lor ia sane, is an- nthar fad, man' whrt is amiallv trrtflfl f at open fiejd running and to plung ing through the line. Fyaxio runs the century in 10 seconds even and is past master of the art of side stepping. ' Although th'e Islanders do not boast of a speed artist like Praxio or Haase, the locals have a fast out fit and will not be much behind the La Sailers if the game should turn into a race. The Davenport-Moline fuss will claim the attention of the Rock Is land fans who will be forced to stay home. It is a good bet that their football appetite will be' well satis fied with the game and that all will come home knowing that they have seen a good game regardless of the score. The pre-battle talk has not been without its bear stories. Moline is sighing because Axene will be out of the battle and Davenport is all broke up because Camp will be on the sidelines. Friday night's paper will probably show that both of these stars played in the battle. Aubrey Devine will be one of the officials for the contest and will be helped by other efficient men. LYNCH DECISION Davenport Legion Anxious to Match Anderson and Champ Bat ' Tiguro Is Too High. Little Joe Lynch, czar of the ban tarns Is easy to get along with. Joseph claims he is one champion of the world who believes in fight ing for "little or nothing" as he pats it.

"What are your best terms?" R. S. Truitt, chairman of the legion's athletic committee, asked Lynch's manager , in a long distance tele phone conversation last night. "Oh Joe's terms are always rea sonable." retorted the champion's spokesman, and in the next breath he named Lynch's figure Fortunately Bill ' Whi'taker, "Butch" Shaw and Bill Sanberg of the legion's athletic committee were behind their chairman as the lat ter neara or Lynch's figure. Some com water 'and another liquid of a brownish color revived Mr. Truitt and be went on with the conversa tion. . "But, Mr. Meade, you don't un derstand, we merely want LyncH tor one night's work merely a 10 round mill with Eddie Anderson of Moline, IlL, we don't want him all season," explained the legion's spokesman. The conversation ndui . later when Mr. Meade - informed Truitt that he would give a definite rawer wimin tne next 48 hours., ' Meanwhile Anderson Is waiting to put hm name oh a legion- con tract and place his forfeit -Just get Mr. Lynch" opined Eddie. "I'll do the rest" Anderson declares he will make any weight Lynch asks him to do and will let the champion weigh a ton If the latter desires.

Again, they have defeated Center and Georgia, two strong elevens. Tectt bas twice been defeated hv Notre Dame, 13 to 0, and by the Navy, 13 to 0. The games were hard fought, but the Yellow Jackets were in a state of development when both contests were flayed. Alexander's men without" doubt gained valuable experience in both these contests and they are the bet ter players for what they learned. Aside from West Point, Auburn has met no teams that are as strong as Notre Dame and the Navy. As a consequence, the showing of each in the season thus far may be cast aside so far as any line they may give as to the outcome of the an nual southern classic is concerned. The Alabamans will, as usual.be heavier than the men of Tech, the Poly team averaging nearly 180 1 Boyd, F pounds to the man, while Georgia Tech works out about 177 pounds. This may gire Auburn a line-rushing advantage. Albeit speed and agility may be applied to offset the handicap of avoirdupois. Again, in Red Barron, Tech has the outstand ing backfleld man, a runner who strikes as hard as a runaway horse and is elusive as a ghost once he is in the clear. Shiring of Auburn is not far behind Red, and the con test . should see these two young men indulging In many spectacular dashes. The game looks to be a toss-up. Pittsburgh should beat Penn State and Notre Dame has a good chance to defeat Nebraska. Six conversations can he rarrle.l ,. .
