Gee but those guys get fierce with
each other. "Tiny" Wallace, and Kittle-bit" Wood are raising the devil
with those subs. The score was seven
to nothing, when we arived on the
scene, but there goes "Pope" Aleo
charging for a touchdown, only to be
stopped on the two yard line when he
slowed up to clean the mud off hi*
The subs can't drive it over, and lose
the leather missle one the two inch
line. But Aleo will not be cheated and
dives grandly over the "last line" after the completion of a lateral pass
from "Runt" Bains.
These practices of the teams are
sure interesting, more of the studes

know you are interested.

in Track Squad
Coach Smith announces a strong
track team for 1929. He himself has
received national recognition, and
planning strong competition for the
cinder men. Sadler, Bains, and Savage, of last year's team, will be out,
and Jones, Freese, and Dee will probably participate. Coaql Smith says
he expects all '29 footb'dl candidates
out for track. Agility, stability, and
durability are the powers de\ .doped
in track, and the coach says no other
features are more required in football, and most pigskin followers will
agree with him.
Coach Smith has worked out an in-
tra-mural program for those who are
unable to participate in organized
sports, providing there is enough interest displayed.
For the benefit of those who are
unaware of the term intra-mural, it
means "within the walls," or in our
interpretation, "between classes."
In this way many athletes are discovered who otherwise would be left
unfound to the sport world. It also
creates a spirit that will be in need
in later life, a spirit of friendly rivalry for your fellow classmate. Knute
Rockne of Notre Dame conducts intra
mural contests and from these games
he picks his athletic representatives.

game, although Elmick intercepted one
and ran 18 yards along the side-lines
for a touch-down, as did Jones a few
minutes later, making a 45 yard sprint
of his interception and score.
Westminister was unusually fortunate in the third stanza of the contest, when Johnny Kuritza, flashy
end, successfully blocked a man, but
much to his sorrow was termed tripping by the umpire, and a 15 yard
penalty was duly inflicted, placing the
ball on the Cougar five yard line.
Jeter's kick was rushed, and went
out of bounds a foot back of the last-
line, giving the opponents 2 points,
and placing the ball on the 20 yard

Jeter's kicking was fairly good at
