'The turning point of our ?ime with
Virginia came through the superb de?

Enthusiasts Greatly Pleased With
Showing of Washington

[Special to The Tlmes-Dlapatch.J I
Lexington, Va, October St.?i.'h?
football enthusiasts who have been
following the destinies of the White
and Blue eleven this fall are decidedly
pleased over the outcome of the game
with Wake Forest College yesterday
While Washington and Lee defeated
the collegians by three touchdowns,
at the same Ume holding them score?
less, the contest was bitterly fought,
their opponents being by no means
weak, and they put up a strong op?
position all the way through. Utley
especially showing tip well for the
Straight football played the most
Important part in the contest, Wash?
ington and Lee's gains being made
through the line, and their own be?
ing practically invincible. Wake -"or-,
eat tried only a few forward passes,
practically aU of which were eaaily
Intercepted by the Varsity. In this
lice of defense the experience of the
St. John's game was very valuable.
Taken altogether the defensive work
of the White, and Bine was far and
away ahead or that put up a week ago.
Varalty'a team work was above par.
on the offense as well aa on the de?
fense. The back field presented a very
strong interference. Edwards especial?
ly doing excellent work In this de?
partment- Ue also played well on the
defense, as did Francis, Shulz, Miller
and Moore, who allowed nothing to get
by him at centre, and waa always in
every play. Wake Forest waa unable
to penetrate the Washington and Lee
line, their heavy hacks being- thrown
for losses time and again. They did
not make a first down during the en?
tire game, and there waa never a dan?
ger of their scoring.
The featurea of the game were the
terrific line-plunging of Beuhrlng and
Carver, who replaced him in the last
period at full back, with a forty-yard
run by Terry, who broke through ana
eluded several tacklers. racing down
the field for a touchdown. The Ar?
kansas boy returned to the game after
a week's absence, and played a aplen
did game. He la fast developing; Into
a consistent ground-gainer.
The entire team went through the
game without a serious injury. Pee
piea waa sllghUy hurt, la the first
half, as waa aJao Right End Barker,
but neither of them will be prevented
from returning to the game la a few
The V. P. I. contest Is only two I

to be up to the standard of V. P. I.
elevens, and it to expected st this end
of the line tbst tbe two teams will
be as evenly matched this year aa In
