West Philly and South Philly and Northeast and

on Twin Fields Six Games-Today
Dy LOUIS II
THE double-header scheduled tomorrow
afternoon In tho IntersehotaiUa League
to be played on ths twin gridirons, Houston
Field and Northeast Field, Is the first tlms
In scholastic history for a counter football
attraction. West Philadelphia and South
Philadelphia clash on Northoast Fletd.whlla
tho Archives aro In combat with their
ancient enomy, Central High School, on
Ths Northeast-Central contest each year
Is bitterly fought. Rivalry between tho two
schools compares even greater than that
between Harvard and Yale. This season
thcro Is no doubt that the Itcil and Hlack
eleven Is tho stronger; previous games of
both teams this season aro used as a cri
terion. As a result Northeast will enter
tho fracas a big favorite, hut It wilt havo
no tea party ngalnat the Mirrors. Tho
matoh will be "a battla for blood" from
whistle to whlstlo, nnd the victor will know
that it was a stiff scrimmage.
Chnnco for Title
West Philly 'has a chanca to clinch the
Interschclastla League championship for
1916. The Hpeedboya already havo two
victories to their credit, and by taking
South Thllly Into camp tomorrow afternoon
It will ellmlnato tho Dowptownors from the
race, as It did Centrnl High. Then, If North

Whllo the contest bctwoen tho Phillies
West and SoutS really can be termed
a crucial one nnd carries moro Iroportancn
than thn Houston Field match, Contral
High nnd Northeast High probably will bo
a greator attraction. Spectators In tho
grand stand of- tho West Phllly-South
Thllly set-to will havo an opportunity to
get a gllmpso of tho other game also by
looking over tho wall.
Two Academic Games
The Interncadenilo Leaguo competition
will concludo this nftemoon with two
matches. Kplscopal Academy will Journey
to Queen I.ano nnd meet Pcnn Chnrter;
Friends' Central tackles Ocrmnntown Acad
emy at CJormantown. Penn Charter and
Friends' Central probably wilt bo tho win
ners. If the 'little Quakers triumph they
will havo successfully defended their title.
It will bo tho fourth consecutive season for
a Penn Charter championship. v
Despite Friends' Cci.tral's pt)c-slded de
feat last week by Penn Charter. It rules
a top-heavy favortta over tho smaller uer
mantown Academy team. Oermantown'a
diminutive eleven hnis been greatly handi
capped by Its youth and smnllncss. and 'for
this reason It has been ilnablo to hold Its
own on the gridiron this year.
Another Big Gnmo
St Luko'a School and Chestnut Hill
Academy clash In their biggest battle of
the season on tho latter'a field. Tho game
will bring to a close tho respective football
seasons of. both schools. Coaches ailllndor
and Dickens have worked with their teams
all week harder than at any tlmo this sea
son. The elevens apparently are evenly
matched, and a close contest should result
Captaln-clect Alexander -will be at half
back for St Luke's. His brilliant punting
and drop-kicking will bo of great service
to the Dlue and White today. "Aleo" also
has been a consistent gToUnd gainer when
carrying tho jall. and Chestnut Hill's de
fense probably will have their oyca peeled
for this young gentleman.
Catholic Ploys Germantown
Oermantown Academy and Catholic? High
School wilt play on a foreign field today.
Northeast Field will be tho scene of their
annual melee. Although the Purplo and
Gold was defeated and eliminated from the
