Subiaco Academy's presented an impregnable dexense tions. ',Eedictable but sometimes high- against the Rocket's feared aerials, Two coaches in the National Professional Football league, Cur- ly Lambeau of the Green Bay !Packers and Gas Dorais of the Detroit Lions, have received con- siderable newspaper publicity the last few weeks because of their venture of viewing their teams from a spot high in the press box, rather than from the field. The coaches sit next to a tele- phone, at the other end of which is an assistant coach on the bench. Thus, the head man still directs his team by remote control. It is unusual but not new for a head coach thus to pull the strings which make his gridiron "pup- pets" perform. They tell here a Marquette, for instance, that a former coach, Frank J. Murray, directed his Hilltoppers from atop the press box in a game with Drake back in 1930. A much better view of a foot- ball game may be obtained from a spot high in the stadium. The coach on the bench probably has the worst location of anyone---the action is too close rand frequently confused. Perspective provided well up in the stands, the higher the better, enables the spectator to see the plays unfold and de- velop, how the defense is lining up, whether the linemen are shift- ing, what formations are being used on offense, and dozens of other details that are caught only in part from the bench. That is why it now is common practice for every major team to have a "high man,' usually an as- sistant coach, perched in the press box or some other towering point so that he may 'phone suggestions and observations to his boss be- low. Most major football fields nowadays are equipped with pri- vate lines both to the home and visiting benches. Vlllaneva's triumph o v e r Princeton was a pleasant surprise to followers of Catholic football. Coach Jordan Olivar is doing a fine job with his Wildcats, and he boasts one of the best varsity Trojans kept their nice g attack throttled down at wood last Friday night to J#]FI} a fighting Bulldog team, llh ' 20, by means of a running 'lt:k that rates as Subiaco's best |'Year.

But the Subiaco boys amply re- deemed themselves in the last 16 to 18 minutes of the game. In that golden period, they rushed over three tallies and executed the try-for-point perfectly for 21 big points that put them far out front in a game that for a time threaten- ed to end in a tie at 20-all. Gorrell Has Good Night Norbert Gorrell, son of Mayor Frank H. Gorrell of Subiaco, play- ed the most consistently good game of the Subiaco eleven, and gave out at all times with fine blocking when not carrying. He worked his end run several times for long yardage, and caught a high, far heave from Savary. Bernard Johnson, who worked up last week from a reserve to a starting post, gave Subiaco its longest run with a 65-yarder on third play of the game. Johnson continued in good style until re- lieved in third quarter by Louis D. Callouet, Lake Village lad, who ripped off some beautiful gains through line and around end. Young Joe Nolte, Jr., starting for the first time, varied nicely with the more experienced George Savary, blocking back and passer. Hoot Lueken, always the stand- out back for the Trojans, was not quite up to his own high average at Greenwood, but still was good! enough to account for 22 of the Trojan's 34 points. His general- ship was at its usual high level. His line-smashing unquestionably contributed in the end to the Greenwood downfall, for in the closing minutes Subiaco was on the loose with its running attack and going at its strongest, with Greenwood sagging. In the first part of the game, almost the re- verse had been true. Subiaco fumbled four times, reviving the spectre of an old hobgoblin that had damaged a lot in early sea- son. But this time the boys re- trieved in good order and com- pensated for every fumble with some extra-good playing. DeSalvo Star of Line Hank DeSalvo, senior tackle, was the star of the Subiaco line, but many others played fine sup- Off to a late start, Boston Col- lege's informal civilian team has been running up a startling record in games with eastern service op- ponents. The scores, in fact, have been reminiscent of those rolled up by recent Eagle varsities coached by Frank Leahy and Denny Myers. The "brain" of the team and serving as assistant to Coach Moody Sarno is Quarter- back Eddie .Doherty, who leaves this month for ensign training. It is an interesting sign of the times that B. C., this fall is using only 12 plays off "T" formation; last year it used 250! Very soon newspapers and mag- azines will be infested with "all- teams." About the only purpose that they accomplish is that they give the self-styled experts a chance to foist their opinions upon the public under the auspices of some advertising scheme. Every- body and his grandmother feels qualified to pick a team, the mem- bers of which most of them have never seen. Many fans used to find fault with Walter Camp when he pick- ed his team from the Ivy League and ignored the remainder of the country, but he was perhaps just as correct as those was pick them today by very dlpiomticaily plac- ing men from each section of the country. It is an impossible task. Some of the best men, who play on small college teams are never even considered, because the ex- perts follow only the broad high- ways of football. More often than not, victorious teams make men outstanding by blazing their names across the pages of all the outstanding news- papers. Bertelli stepped out of the picture when he went into the service, and LuJack stepped into the spot-light. There has been no apparent difference in the per- formance of the Notre Dame team. Yet Lujack was accounted a sec- ond stringer until he had his chance. Hundreds of other men could have done as well. Some might even have done better; Marchy Schwartz who was an All-American, himself, once wrote an article about these "all-teams." He said they were the bunk. He  also said that the best center that he ever saw in his whole college career was a center on the Kansas University team, and his name was not even included among those who were considered. Well, anyway, it all adds up to this. You can pick your team with as much assurance as Grant- land Rice because you have just as much chance of being right. All Rice knows is what he sees under the big tent. Perhaps you have seen a better man playing somewhere in South Burlap. It is fun though and the American people like it, so let's have all- teams by all means. ends in the land in 175-pound Bill Sullivan. porting roles.

The Subiaco boys arc booked to wind up their season with a Thanksgiving game at Paris against Van Baron.

Des Melae. Is. One Farm Family The Nation's Agriculture tells what one farm family is doing. I "A few years ago you could !have rounded up a baseball team in short order at the Malloy farm, near Westside, in Crawford coun- ty, Iowa. A family team, too, be- capse there were nine boys at home--the brothers Malloy. You couldn't do that now, because the boys aren't all at home. Bill, Ed and Clarence are in the army and Clair is in defense work. Joe, Rupert, Ray, Melvin and Louis are fighting this war on the food production front. "War has broken up the Malloy team, but not the Malloy team- work. You can notice that team- work right away when you come: on the Malloy place. There's no confusion and no lost motion. Each of the boys manages a part of the operation of 763 acres. The profits are divided equally, the boys in the service getting the same share as those at hpme. "The Malloy farm is a war food arsenal. There are 13 milk cows, 35 yearling steers and hetel-s, 30 head of stock cows, 12 horses and 350 spring pigs. There are also 225 sheep and 250 lambs. "What's the secret of success- ful partnership and unselfish co- operation of the Malloy's? The answer is--Mrs. Margaret Malloy. When Thomas Malloy died in 1920 the boys ranged in age from seventeen to infancy. It a tklot courage and patience and of figuring to raise nine active boys. Mrs. Malloy had the right answer. It was teamwork. She taught it to her sons and it has paid rich dividends. "The Malloys have never asked for exemption or deferment in the service of their country. They have bought their share and more of bonds. Their farms are under agreement with the Crawford County Soil Conservation District and also with the TVA in a soil building program. A good land use program is being followed. Malloys 'hold two member- ships in the Crawford County Farm Bureau. Joe has been township Farm Bureau director and is a member of the country organization committee. He also was an active member on the county program planning com- mittee. "They are good neighbors, al- ways helpful when needed. They have a quiet modest way of doing things that does not excite envy. Their home is always a most hos- pitable one. They aid in worth- while community projects. "The pastor of St. Ann's Church, Vail, Iowa, Father D. L. Clark says: "I am very happy to tell you that the Malloys is one of my best Catholic families. I am proud of them. You would en- joy them if ever you come out this way. They are as proud of (:t'ei:r Faith as they are of their worldly success. With all their work they never miss any de- votion here in Vail. This would be a gret Nation if every farm home were like theirs." / , : 42 U. S. Soldiers) Nurses Confirmed In England London. (E)--Forty-two U. S. soldiers and nurses were con- firmed by the Bishop of North- ampon, the Most Roy. T. Leo Parker, in the chapel of a U.S. bomb group at a ceremony which is believed to be without paral- lel in this country. Four Catholic chaplains who as- sisted the Bishop belonged to four different religious communities Passionists, Redemptorists, Paulists and Resurrectionists. The sponsor at the confirmation was Capt. Jeremiah O'Sullivan, formerly history professor at Fordham University. Korean Children Make Heroic Profession, Faith "The only way you can stop us from going to the Catholic 11 " Church is by ki ing us.  This was the reaction of four .:little Korean girls to three hours of questioning and threats in a police station in Rashu, Korea. The story is told by Father Harold Henry, St. Columban missionary, of the Prefecture of Kwoshu Korea. The four girls, between seven and ten years of age, were pupils of one of St. Columbans schools and had taken part in a concert on Christmas Eve. They sang a song which contained a phrase about a flower that would bloom in Korea more beautifully than ever before. The police were im- mediately interested, interpreting the flower as signifying Korean independence. A policeman cop- ied out the words of the song and one evening a week later, the four youngsters and their catechist were arrested and, in cold January weather, put in a cell with a brok- en window. Next morning, about nine o'- clock, they were brought to the police office and beaten, the police attempting to extract a confession from the children that their ca- techist had taught the treasonable song. "We are Catholics," the children protested, "and we be- lieve in God. We know it is a sin to tell a lie, so you must be- lieve us when we tell you that our catechist did not teach us that song." The children were then told that they would have to give up their religion. They retorted that they would sooner die. The ordeal went on for three hours until noon. The children said that they had learned the song, to which they attached no hidden meaning from two boys in the village. Then the boys were taken in for ques- tioning and beaten, one of them so badly that he had to receive medical attention. The boys learned the song, they said, about seven years before from a man in the village, who could not now be found. Intent on finding a cul- prit of some sort, the police forced the catechist to sign a document l stating that he was guilty, be-i cause, being the responsible per-i son in the village, he did )ot know that the children knew that song. Such 'incidents, involving sta- unch, sometimes heroin profession of Faith, have been numerous in the prefectures of Kwoshu and Bogus 'K. Of C.' Oath Makes Appearance Caracas. 0)The bogus "Knights of Columbus oath," certified as false by Masons in the United States, has again come to light in Masonic circles in Latin America. Regenerador, Masonic publica- tion at Maracaibo, in publishing the alleged "oath"  somewhat condensed but no less libelous in its Spanish versionused the fol- lowing preced: "This iniquitous document appeared in a New York daily; it was taken in authentic copy from the Official Acts of the Congress of the Roman Catholic Institution of the United States called The Knights Of Columbus, sssion of February 15, 1913, page 326. This Jesuit institution want- ed to draw the United States into a war,with Mexico when the Col- lea Government was enforcing the laws on religious worship and the Constitution of that country." The "oath" is followed by a parenthetical statement which , reads: "Reprinted in Expositor !Bautista of Buenos Aires, Argen- tina, by Rafael Galizia, in the is- sue corresponding to February 1, 1929." This in turn is followed by an editor's note: "This docu- ment, injurious and unjust to Masonry, was published by us some time ago, but we reproduce it again at the request of various brothers and lodges. (Italic) In it is contained the key to the hate and persecution which certain ele- ments have declared against our Order (End Italic). Masonry, which is Tolerance and Love, ought not, and does not, answer diatribe with diatribe, nor use such gross and criminal weapons, I but "it would be well to be on the !alert against such vigorous one- miles.

(In the past 32 ,years, the bogus Knights of Col- umbus "oath" has appeared many times and in many places. This vicious libel has been officially repudiated by the Knights of Col- umbus, publicly condemned by a special committee of Freemasons appointed to investigate the mat- ters, and by the Congressional Committee to which the matter was referred. Courts have con- victed those who circulated copies of the "oath" on charges of crim- inal libel, conviction for which carries sentence of fine and im- prisonment. Yet, at regular in- terval, it reappears. In 1931, the late General Ludendorff and his wife made use of it in Germany when they were publishing a periodical devoted to vilifying "Jews, Jesuits and Freemasons."
