Signed papers for a 10-round fight
between Johnny GIU and Knock- Out
Brennen. of Buffalo: were received
Inst night. The battle is to take place
on New Year's Day. Where this im
portant fight will be staged is not
yet decided. Arrangements may be
made with the Motive Power Athletic
Association of the Pennsylvania Rail
road. This is the most important
ring announcement Harrisburg fans
have had for a long time.
That Brennen is after a battle for
the title has long been the talk of
the fistic world. The Buffnio fighter
has been delivering the goods and is
in line to meet the champion, but first
wants to get a chance at Gill. Both
fighters have agreed to make the
necessary weight for this battle. This
match was made by Joe'Barrett, who
has Johnny Gill under his care. It
came through his friendship with
Brcnnen's manager. Barrett has the
signed contracts and the battle is cer
Due to the expense attached to a
match of this kind a large hall Is

says he will pull the fight oft either

who are up to the minute on ring
information realize that if this battle

There Is a Difference Now
in Goal From Touchdown
The Penn-Dartmouth. Pittsburgh-
W. and J., and Dartmouth-Brown
games, which were decided by goals
from touchdowns, has started anew
the discussion over the advisability
of abolishing the count altogether.
The goal from touchdown has taken
some hard knocks in its time.
In 1883 it ranked 4 points to 2 for
a touchdown, and 5 for a goal from
field. The following season the
touchdown moved up in value to 4
points, while the goal dropped to 2,
where it remained until 1897. when
the touchdown added a point and tho
goal lost one. In 1904 the value of a
goal from field was reduced from 5 to
4 points and in 1909 to 3 points. In
1912 the touchdown advanced to C
In the evolution of the gridiron
game the touchdown has moved up
from 2 to 6 points, while the goal has
dropped from 4 to 1 point, and the
field goal from 5 to 3. This shows
that, football, as its name implies
started out as a kicking game, and
the high values were placed on the
art of hoisting the oval with the foot.
Then came the predominance of rush
ing. which in turn seems to have
given way to the forward pass,
which smacks of basketball. The
skill of the foot bows to the prowess
of the hand.—William 11. Wright in
New York World.
Camp Hill Teams Will

Center College Lands Place
on Harvard Grid Schedule
Cnmbrlrigr, Mass.. Dec. 10.—The
football eleven of Center College, un
beaten during the last season, will
meet the Harvard University team
here for the Crimson's principal mid
season game on October 23, next year.
The announcement of this game was
followed to-day by the statement of
Harvard athletic authorities that a
proposal for a game with University
of Illinois had been dismissed. Illi
nois, it was said, requested that
Harvard go west in 1921 if Illinois
played here next year, and stipulated
that the games if played be regarded
as "practice" contests. Harvard re
plied that long trips in mid-term
could not be considered. Tt was felt
that a game between Harvard and
the team which won the conference
championship this year could not be
considered a "practice" one.
Harrisburg Tech on Saturday

Scholastic Basketball Holds
Attention; Girls Have
Fast Team
Three West Shore High schools are
represented by basketball teams this
season, the largest number in the his
tory of the West Shore. Camp Hill
High which has had several fast
loams in the field, both lioys and girls,
in recent years again is represented
with a lively outfit. The girl's team
of this school which established an
enviable record last year, Is again
going at a fast clip. The Enola and
West Falrview High teams although
composed of unpolished and inexperi
enced material will speedily develop
into winning aggregations. ,
The Camp Hill Tigh teams were or
ganized several years ago and al
though not making any new high rec
ords in the game, put- up stiff con
tests and the players were considered
of a high caliber due to the fact that
most of (he teams opposing the 'cross
river outfit were much faster and
composed of finished material.
Boys Team Strong
The boys' team lias been showing
| good team work in practices this
week and with a few hard contests
I which they have scheduled to play
the early part of the season, the
quintet should be working In good
shape and come through with quite
a few victories. That the girls' team
is going to have another record
breaker season, is manifested by the
speed whicli members show in the
workouts. Four members of last year's
outfit which lost but one game, are on
this year's five. A hard schedule is
before the girls, hut they expect to
come through with (lying colors.
Enola and Camp Hill are scheduled
to clash in a series of games and it
is altogether likely that West Fair
view will join in a series with the
other West Shore teams. A champion

Revival of Sport*
Talking of West Shoie basketball
teams takes graduates of 'cross river
schools bock seven years ago when
Lemoyne High was represented for
several years by fast teams. The Le
moyne organization made quite a rec
otd during several seasons hut for
the lack of adequate facilities were
forced to quit. Installation of a gym
nasium in the Camp Hill school
building was the first step toward the
encouragement of sports in the West
Shore districts. Should an addition be
made to the Lemoyne schools, It is
altogether likely sport facilities
would be made. The Camp Hill am
Knola schools are the only buildings
having gymnasiums at the present
