Football vs. College Game
By STONEY McMNN
r' 13 seldom In the ltfctime of u man flint he faces a crisis surh ns Nig
Merry encountered In the final period of the profesHieuul football game be
tween the Prankford Yclloxxjaehots mid Iluffule All-Amerleans lift Saturday.
The battle developed in Mich n way that te Herrj'n right feet xxas Intrusted
the task of presenting the defeat of the Philadelphia eleven In the tight
bearing en the professional gridiron champion-
match, lllg money had been bet en the outcome,
principally because of his drop-kicking ability. He
yard murk, and It requires mere than a
keen eye te punch the pigskin exer the crossbar from that distance.
Once mere, it wus a professional match. Perry was being paid te de
lis specialty. Pnilure for him meant that he would net have earned his day's
wages. It was net te be compared te a college game, where a boy gives his
all for his alma mater and if he fulls is cheered because he has done his
best. Seme of the Prankford rooters hail been jelling "Take Perry out!"
and he must have heard them. Ppen his courage and ability te come through
in a pinch rested the outcome of the game. His teammates could halt the
charging Puffalees, but that was nil they could de. That was net much for
the man who must beet a football between these uprights 30 yards away.
VjLTELL, Kerry accomplished the feat. The moment the lall teat
rr paiscd te him from center and he dropped it te the around te
meet the tiring of his right lea, men irhe knew Xip and had seen him
perform realized that he had once mere put eter hit specialtp. Thtrc
teas net the slightest hesitancy; if one single nerve in his body teas
ntrcmlle he did net show it. folks, it required the old stuff te de
liver that score-knotting drop-kick. That is tehy Xig Berry is made
the here of this story.
Defense Is Superior te Offense
fttne Impressive thing about professional football, in the opinion of this
J- writer, is the cxident superiority of the defense ever the offense. The
chaps who play the game xxere stars when they were the colors of a college.
They play first xith their hends; then with their bodies. It is very hard
te feel a Heine Miller, a l.ud Vx'rny, a Merrlsey or n Youngstrem. These
athletes are experts. On the defense, nine times out e tcu they think just
as fast as the offense.
Intultixely, a trained football player who has wen Ail-American honors
knows xvhat the opponents will de under certain circumstances. A ferxvnrd
pass may succeed because it is clex-er)y executed, but seldom will it completely
surprise the defensive team. These men play football vigorously tackle hard
and, when necessary, threxv themselves at an opponent te get him out of the
piny with no thought of possible injury. However, it is u question whether
they give that final ounce of energy, since they are emplejlng their brainH.
Ofttimes we have watched n college gridder take unnecessary chances. A
tackier will lunge at a runner xxhe is out of bounds; a player carrying the
ball xx ill try te go ferxvnrd when three or mere men have him in a pocket,
half-tackled, and it is certain he will be threxxn backward and get a bruising
fall. Professionals de net play the game that xvny.
They tight for every Inch. Put because they nre playing with their
heads putting hrnin before brawn they conserve their energy, try te escape
unnecessary punKhuient. It makes a very pretty game te watch for the keen
atudent of first-class football.
0ir.Y(7 te the fact that tice professional elexens, composed of
genuine stars, arc supposedly equal in mental alertness and fight,
it becomes a test of physical strength line play for the most part.
And the contest betucen the lines of Frankfort! and Jluffale irat
splendid, lteticecn the 26-yard marks both tcami gained ground -Huffale
07 yards te S3 for 1'rankferd. Hut when either team get in
side the scoring zone the defense became a stone trail.
Kicking Was the Chief Facter
THE All -Americans had four chances te kick field goals te one for the
Yellexx-jackets, because Hughltt's punts traveled farther and xvere better
placed than these of Scott. The Prankford star xxas net in iirst-clas condi
tion because of injuries in previous battle-, which retarded his efforts. In a.
game where the defense of the rival teams is m fur superior te the offense it
becomes a question of punting and field-goal kicking. Puffale bad the oppor
tunities because ij( geed punting, but accepted only one. And the Yellow
Jackets grabbed the en chance that came their way -or Perry did for them.
An example cu" the hair-trigger bralnwerk that is a part of the football
played by the profc-iienal came in the third period. Merrlsey was back te
try a placement pnl. Huglilrt was te bold the ball. The pass from center
was low and slipped by llugbitt. It rolled te Merrlsey, who, quick as a flash,
picked up that ball and threxv it forward. It was the fourth down, and bad
net the former Husten slur acted instantaneously be would have been threxvn
en the -Kt-jard line, where Prankford xveuld have had the ball. As it was,
Heashel. intercepted the chuck and was tackled nbeut the 10-yard mark. A
beady play saved BO jards fur Huffale.
Huffale attempted seven ferxx-ard passes and three succeeded for n total
aln of 110 jards. Hughltt is a master of the pass. He threxvs the ball with
bullet-like speed mid true te the matk. Against opponents xvith less experi
ence Hughitt's pushes might have wen the game. Prankford essayed only
three chucks ferxvnrd, txxe being grounded and one intercepted. Thitj prexes
that xvhen txve wise teams nre battling the open game is net likely te be
effective. We repeat, it is a question of kicking, strength and the breaks.
Of course, the professionals, drawn from many sections, perhaps, xxith
little opportunity te practice and develop a system of play, de net have the
variety of attuck xvblch marks the college games. Several times the tit Id gen
eral was compelled te tell his plnjers xvhere they xxere te stanil in certain
offensive plnjs. However, had Frnnkferd and Huffale both drilled and trained
end studied ns de the collegians the result xveuld have been the snrae. I.
feneive smartness would hnve eutmuneuxered whatever might haxe been dis
played in the xx ay of un attack.
H.Y;: SllLLMt, former Venn captain and pilot nf the Yellow Yellew
jackets, pleyed a game at end that amazed and delighted tin
crowd, lie was in every scrimmage, his tackling was sure and vigor
' eus and ha seldom failed te seme just what the opposition planned in
i the way of attack. Tem Creeks, himself a wonder end tchtn wearing
y the red and blue, said: "Hiinc may net live up te what wc xcill call

while the colleges attract students and graduates chiefly. In ether words,
Mr. Ynrnellu thinks it quite possible that big league professional football will

True enough, the cheering sections, the display of colors and the cellege
jtiplrlt that nre se much a part of the games in the htudlums at Peuusylxaiila,

Imagine If jeu will, please thecc of you
who were net among the mere than 15,000
i-pectnter this situation : l.uffale had scored
three points in the second period when Mor Mer

placement goal. It xxub uppannt that the de
fense of the txxe teams would net permit a
touchdown unless a break came along. The
Yellewjackets get the ball within striking dis
tance in the last quarter, A held goal weulft
tie the score. That wus the best Prankford
could hope for a drawn battle.
And Peny was called back te drop-kick

Nine years nge Mrs. Renald Hnrlexv j

That fighting spirit served her well ,

She would net admit defeat in the sick

STARRED AT SEABRIGHT
By WILLIAM T. TILDEN

THE Past gained u nexv plujcr for
America's first ten tennis stars in
1022 when Francis T. Hunter, from
Ncxv Iiechclle, jumped from seml-eh-scurity
te eighth place in the belcct
Hunter opened the car auspiciously
bv winning the national indoors single
Championship, defeating the former i
titlehnlder, Prank T. Andersen, de
cisively in the final round. In the
early season play he wen the ex cut at
WhitcSulphur Springs, beating O. C.
Shafer In fixe sets nfter the latter had
eliminated P. II. Veschell. In the
Church Cup matches Hunter wen txxe
points for Nexv Yerk by successive vic
tories ever P. H. Hawk, of Philadel
phia, and G. Colket Caner, of Bosten.
He took a set from Vincent Pilchards

riMID UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA is planning a benefit game f.,r
next Saturday nftcrnoen, the proceeds te be given te the parents of Andrew
Lnng, the freshman who died from injuries sustained In a game ugalnst
Such u game would be entirely fitting and proper. It would 4c ene wax wax
te show the sympathy of Pennsylvania men and Phlladelphlnns toward th
korrexv-strlckcn parents of the courageous freshman.
It la planned te have n game between the 1022 eleven and n team made up
of stars of ether years. I.cxv Yeung, captain In 1913, will have charge of
the alumni eleven.
Letters have been sent out te such old-time heroes as BUI Hellcnbaek,
Beb Felwcll, Rey Mercer, Si Pauxlis, By Dicksen and a host of younger men
who have played -within the last five years.
What n treat it would be if the Hollenback, the Pnuxtls, the Felwcll

Several Missing Frem l'enn's Varsity List
PP.NN football players are somewhat aroused concerning the unofficial list
of players xxhe are reported ns being selected for the varsity football letter.
The list contained only eighteen names.
Among the most prominent members of the sound who were missing are
Babe Greve, Frank Reckus, Jim Bryden and Jake Kauffman. All these men
pleyed In the Cernell geme, und in ether jears it hns been the custom te reward
the nthletes who started or who were substituted in the Thanksgiving Day
games with the coveted insignia.
It is net knexvn who selected the names. Edward II. Bushnell, former
graduntc manager, and Ernest Cozens, Bushnell's buccesser, both deny that
the list is official. They point out that there has been no meating of the Football
Committee te dnte and thcrefore there could be no correct list of names.
If the list gees through, Pennsylvania will break a tradition that has been
handed down through decades. Tbe Cernell game has long been the letter
