DALLAS. Tex., Jan. 2.?One of the
biggest upsets of the footbail season
occurred here to-day, when Centre Col?
lege, conqueror of Harvard und rated
as the champion of the South, went
down before Texas Agricultural and
Mechanical College, the battiing repre?
sentatives of the Southwestern Confcr
ence. The score was 22 to 14 and
truly reflected the closeness and fierco
ness of the circuit.
Taking tha lead within tha first
three minutes of play. when Bartlett,
of Centre, was downed behind his own
goal line by Wilson, of the Aggies,
this counting as a safety, thc Texans,
generally predicted to lose by at least
twenty poii I . battled every minute of
the foui strcnuous pvriods and at times
displayed a drive and determination
that literaliy swept the Colonels off
their feet.
Centre Players Bewildered
They presented a defense that \ as
well nigh impregnable, while on the
otfense they uncovered a series ui'
tricky and versatile attacks that put
the Centre men completely at sea. En
tering the third period, with the score
still 2 to u against them, after they
I ad been twice halted in the shadow
of the Texas goal posts in the second
period, the Colonels, favored by an
!\.ggii fumble, eombined with a line
buck by Snoddy, *-eored their first
touchdown. Roberts kicked goal.
Then, shortlj after lhe l:ick-off, 'A'.
ier. for the Aggies, mnde an unexpect
ed i.ien to Evans, who raecd thirty
yards to a touchdown. McMillan, sub
bing for Morris, kicked goal, making
the score (J to 7 in favor of the
ln the third period, with the ball on
Centre's 30-yard line, Wilson circled
r ght end for another A. and AI. to
down and McMillan again kicked goal.
The fin;u period w ii :;>-s;.'d the lasl
Texas score, when "Bo"' McMillin, after
being tackled behind thc line, ma .??
a blind piyss. Winn intercepted for A.
and M. and rnced forty yards, across

After all, why -rhould not the thirty-five day handicap lmposed on

We havo already diseovercd, through records ot" tlie last three
years, that no home run hittcr can compete with l'Enfant Magniiiquo on
a scratch basis.
There is no part of a contest left. And the spectacle. of Ruth
batting against his own high mark has become extremely stalc.
As it will bo this spring, his loading rivals will have tho jump on
him by five or ten homers, and, just as they scem to be disappearing
