This i a most enviable record under any condition, but it is doubly so when we consider the fact that this was the first year of football fr the local A. H. team, and only two of its members had ever played before. Then, too, this recbrd w/ made against school teams that had been making football a specialty for yearz past, This brings out the question, "Why such phenomenal success?" The an- ver is easy. Coach "Billy" Wood is the right man in the right place and knows how to "whip" an aggre gation of recruits into a winning football team. While doing this he has gained the love and respect of his boys and instilled into them the de- termination to win fairly and to be generous losers. His motto was "Play the game to u'n, but play it like men." We are proud of Coach Wood and our football boys. 'Rah, for the entire bunch, and a big one for J. L.
