I By BRYAN MORSE.
Rugene Ochsenrelter, Tech's freshman
halfback. Is receiving all the honors to
day for having made the most senaa
tlonal play of the high school football
(erics. Ochscnrclter's dropklck from
the 25-yard lino In yesterday's Tech
Eaatem game was the only score of the
contest, and gave Tech a victory.
The dropklrk came In tho last part
of the second nuartecr. Tech and East
ern had battled up and down tho Held
for tho best part of three quarters,
Tech being unable to count and eastern
holding at tiroes on the brink of Its
Receiving a poor pass, after he had
succeeded In rushing the ball somo forty
jmrds on three attempts, Ochsenrelter,
In dropping back for a kick, found him
self beset with thrco Eastern linemen.
The ball was swung down from over
Ochsenreltcr's head and ho coolly took
look at the goal posts and bcoted the
ball between the plaers who stood all
round him. The ball sailed squarely
between the posts and the game was
It waa one of the most sensational
plays of tho high school series, and dis
played great coolness and headwork on
tho part of the Tech player who finds
himself quite a hero In this his first
year on a Tech team. Ochsetirelter's
first appearance was In the Tech-Ccn-tral
game, and he narrowly missed a
dropklck from the 50-yard line.
The game Itself was h disappointment
to Eastern as well as Tech. The Light
Blue and White had expected a win and
was depending uron tho speed of its
backfleld to carry It through to a win.
Speed failed to materialize In the East
ern line-up and the formations run wjth
a direct pass to the hacks robbed tho
Capitol Illll Inim of whatever speed
It had. Kasttrn's showing was a disap
pointment In nen' sense of the word.
Pope's absence was keenly felt and a
bift In the llne-un caused the left end
to be unusually weak, most of Tech'a
gains beliic made around that Hank.
Tech was able to guln through the
line on fake kirk plays and Eastern
made most of its distance through run

of applause from thu spectators. Gaui

NEW VOrtK. Nov. 20. Harry Wolor

club, of the Pacltlc Coast League, for
1:113 and will leave soon for the coast.
He iitl tnpted to legalu his former
berth In Oakland, but It hud been tilled.
Wolverton has had great success In
Callfornl 1 baseball and Is expected to
put Sacramento on the map next year.
"I hao nothing to say about my
treatment here," said Wolverton today.
Tro fans of the American League
know what I had to contend with all
last summer. Most of my team were
on the sick or injured list nil tho time

"I llko California I have always been

Harvard's Jump .forward Isn't n matter of the physical. You may call it
psychological, mental, or spiritual, or een a mlxturo of the three. But
the facts arc that Harvard lias Hashed the Jump, and her old dnys of dark

The awakening in any team Is rarely over physical In any part. Tho
Senatorial riiBh last season in tho American League was dun more to a
rejuvenation of soul and spirit than through any increased, or greatly In
