ANNIVERSARY: LOST AND FOUND
Jack Tibby did a splendid job on his Men of the Quarter Century, catching the color and spirit of 1931 very accurately. Being one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Lost Generation, I know.
In New York on
vacation in 1931 I witnessed that famous 33-33 Yale-Dartmouth tie. In 28 years
of writing sports I've seen many thrilling football games. But that one still
rates among the alltime tops.

ANNIVERSARY: SPECIAL ATTRACTION
Speaking of Ralph Dougherty of Pittsburgh, he writes, "Dougherty outcharged Notre Dame's All-America center, Tommy Yarr, that day and spilled enough other Notre Dames on the field to be elected to their all-opponents team, win All-America mentions himself." Both Dougherty and Yarr won all kinds of mention in 1931; but Grantland Rice, usually considered official after the passing of Walter Camp, named Maynard Morrison of Michigan as All-America center.
This leads to an
endorsement of the suggestion by a HOTBOX interviewee (SI, Dec. 3) that
All-America teams should be 33-man squads.
