We have been getting many I
hearty chuckles by rending the
Austin American of late. Bcm'e
Strickland the Austin high coach
you know w-as bitterly opposed to
the eight-semester nnd trani'er
rules. It sctmi that Austin high
had been using n number of trans-
fers annually but had not receiv
ed the publicity that other Bchoob I
received whtn they played the
transfer.!!. Now s.nce the rules
have been passed. Hop in the Aus-
tin American says It is the death
knell of high school football He
complains oh so bitterly declaring
that from now on the high schools
can use only youngsters Instcnd of
men -and then adds that the rule
will be repealed w-'th.n two years.
Hop the American scrllie sure-
ly ought to have known better

It but Texas Is not the first state

Texas Is the thirty-second staler
