REJUVENATED HAMPTON "SEA.
SEDERS" TROUNCE LINCOLN IN
A SPECTACULAR GAME 7-0.
By Irvin S. Curry.
After a 3-0 defeat at the hands of
Union and a 26-6 victory over Vir
ginia, head coach Williams finally
succeeded In renovating the weak
places In his machine caused by draft
Coach Collins' big husky Lincoln
ltes arrived on the campus Thursday
morning and after a secret practice
Thursday on our field, were ready to
enter the fray. A heavy wind Was
sweeping along the Virginia shores,
but later up in the day
inson worked with clocklike nrenisinn
and surpassed the Howard squad in
every manner. The Washington bovs
were only ablo to score two first
downs against their formidable op
ponents while the Unionltes ran wild
around the ends and "tank" Woods
plunged their paper line continually
for long gains.
Howard kicked off to Union but the
Unionltes seemed to bo a trifle slow
getting their machine started. Here
Howard took advantage and put up
her strongest fight of the game. On
the fourth down Hucles punted and
Howard returned thirty yards and
finally brought the ball to Unions
thirty-five yard line and the home
fires ceased to burn when Fisher's
drop kick failed to go over.
Union failed to gain on four downs
and the ball went over likewise
Howard failed, the ball going to Union
n her own territory. "Tank" Woods
began Union's terrible offensive by
going over right tackle for four yards,
then Hucles passed forty yards to Tay
lor and the speedy Gregory completed
this move by skirting and running
through amaaca of would bo tacklers
for a touchdown.
Ilulcles kicked goal. Howard being
unable to davance her distance from
kickoff punted to Union. Waters and
Young in their vain effort to stop
Hucles on the return collided, Young
being knocked unconscious.
The second quarter, found the ball
on Union's forty yard line from which
Union essayed her second successful
nass. On the fourth down Huclns
punted and Howard failing to gain
also kicked. Gregory returned the
punt twenty yards, and constant
plunges, by the red and steel backs
carried the ball to Howard's five yard
line but n penalty on Union brought
the oval back and Hucles booted the
pigskin between the uprights.
In the second half Union seemed to
grow stronger and refused to allow
Howard to advance the ball from her
teritory, forcing her to kick. Gregory
received the punt and ran through
the Howard combination for forty
yards. The visitors failing to gain
from here lost the ball but quickly
recovered It when Taylor intercepted
a pass. Gregory brought the ball Into
kinking distance but Hucles failed.
Here Howard beginning to play en
tirely on the defensive kicked. The
quarter foun dthe ball In Union's
possession but Howard grabbed the
ball on a pass to Taylor and Immed
iately punted the ball to Union's
elusive quarterback who sidestepped
several tacklers and ran thirty-five
yards. Johnson and Woods by heavy
plunging carried the ball over for the
final touchdown of the game. The
game ending with Howard having the
bail In midfleld. The Unionltes went
wild with enthusiasm as their champ
ion eleven marched from the gridiron,
Union lost several of her best men
on account of the war nevertheless
Coach Robinson with undaunted spirit
produced an aggregation which no
team has been able to get closer than
twenty-five yards of her goal line.
Neither Hampton nor Howard were
able to cope with the fast red and

the alert half back of the visitors by
remarkable broken lield running, suc
