OAK CLIFF BEAT ABILENE
Locals Fought Gamely All
Through But Were Unable To
Score On Heavier Visitors
Using tlift long end run for sweep
ing gains at tho very Outset of the
game with tho result that their first
touchdown was scored in tho first
four minutes of play and execut-
ing this plity for a greater part of tho
game' Oak Cliff High swept into the
finals of tho University Intcrscholas-
tio league oy defeating Abllono High
school hero Saturday Afternoon by a

was of a rather onesided nature
largo crowd saw tho game and 4h
usual cheering was present a lari
number of Simmons Collogo students
were on hand tp give their Bupport

was also oh hand coming totho ganlu
In a body and carrying a bannor. The
local high schol students woro out
en masse and a large number of Dal-
las fans also woro present.
There Is no alibi necessary for tho
Abilene High School losing its first
game of the season and thereby its
chance at tho state race for tho en-
tiro team was tip and at 'em at every
stage but the Oak Cliff eleven proved
to be superior. Especial mention of
Pat Murphy quarterback and captain
playing his farewell game for A. II. H.
should bo given for he continued in
tho camo after havlncr received a
sovero Injury to a 8houldor and nl
though Unablo to uso ono arm he
continued in tho game. At tho con-
clusion of the gamo tho Oak Cliff
team crowded around Murphy and
congratulated Mm for his playing.
Murphy's punting was also a feature
and his nffenso work was sparkling as
his defonslvo work. During tho latter
part of the gamo Murphy was upable
to throw forward passes on account
or His injury but ho continued In the
same to tlio end.
Machine Work Brilliant
The machine work of the Oak Cliff
loven was brilliant particularly in
tho matter of tho end run which they
executed with such interference that
th play was difficult to stop once
It had got into motion. Gcorgo Play
er quarterback was tho most sub-
stantial ground gainer for tho Leop
ards and micceoded In ripping off
gains that were responsible for two
of tho visitors' touchdowns. Pat Wcqk-
loy as well succeeded In advancing tho
ball substantially lor tho visitors and
ho together with Cllft and Lynch
Guitar's Hurt Spectacular
Karl Guitar was tho best ground
gainer in the Abilene high back field
and lib sensational dash of 40 yards
through a broken field constituted
the most spectacular play of the game
Ho was successful In shaking off sev
eral would bo tncklcrs carrying thii
ball to tho 12-yard lino where tho ball
was lost as tho result of a forward
. pass being broken up by CUfC.
ttounua and Mooro also played a
spectacular gamo for the lpcalB time
and again breaking through and
throwing a runner for a loss. At ono
stage in tho gamo Oak Cliff was
thrown for a lS-yard loss this coming
about through the work of Mooro. It
was Mooro also who broko up a place-
ment kick. Duo to an injury to a
shoulder Gentry was forced to leave
tho game but roturned later. Nolahd
and Hanna also showed good work.

As Is well known tho pretext undor
which Japan Is pushing her colonial
"plantations" is that her homo popu-
lation is so ovororowded that it must
bo allowed to oxpartd into other peo-
ple's lands. In point of fact only
about 1-2 million Japancso havo left
tho Japaneso archipelago during the
last thlrty-flvo years. If they had
all romalncd 1n Japan hor present
population density would bo nearly
377 Instead of 373 nor snuaro miro.
In view of tho fact that Japaneso emi
gration ouring tno last thirty-five
years has lowered her present popu
lation density only four per square
mile thoro does not seem ground on
which to argue that emigration has
yet liolpod materially to case Japan's
alleged ovorcrowded condition at
any rate not In proportion to tho ani-

In soqio of the Islands groups tho
volcanoes aro still In a state of ac-
tivity and several years ago the Sam-
oan Island of Savaii was for a tlmo
tho scene of ono of the greatest erup-
tions ever witnessed.
Moat of the coralline islands of
Eastern Polynesia extending on both '
sides of tlio .equator bear traces of
former volcanic activity ns evidenced
by tho numerous extinct craters scat-
tered over the land masses. They have
long been -quiescent is clear from the
dense vogetatloq overywhero covering
tho surface except porhapr on the
precipitous crater ruins where the
sheer walls of rock afford little en-
couragement to plant llfo.
In natural resources theso Pacific
islands differ to some extent from
Australia New Zealand and Now
Guinea there bolhg so far as la known
an absence of great and rich mineral
doppslts; but the soils ara extremely
rich -and for tho production of sugar
cotton rubber cocoanuts bananas
coffee cocoa rlco pineapples and
many varieties of fruit and vegeta-
bles they aro eminently suitable and
probably unsurpassed. It would in-
deed he difficult ta namq nny product
of tropical origin that could not flour-
ish in tho fertllo solJs Of Polynesia.
Among the greatest of all the na-
tural resources of these oceanic ter-
ritories tho enormous deposits of high
grado phosphates on several of the
Polynesian islands aro of prime Im
portance . This is especially so in
the caso of Nauru which is esti-
mated by Dr. Paul Hombrun to con-
tain about 4977000000 tons of the
richest phosphates to be obtained
anywhere. The Ocean Island high
grade phosphate deposits are esti-
mated at 12 1-2 million tons.
There aro also rich phosphat de-
posits on tho islands of Angaur In
tho Folow group and Makatea the
estimated quantity on tho latter be-
ing 10 million tops.
