and a day or so will be utilized in giv?
ing a thorough steaming test to the

These tests upon the part of the
navy are to lie followed up by the

low grade fuels, as tho slabs or screen?

C. T. Malcoqier, engineer in charge

Great Surprise.
William and Mary College triumph
ed over Rnndolph-Alacon College in
their annual football battlo on I .a fay
el to IT. Id, Norfolk, yesterday after
npon hv :t mtirgiu of i l? ?. The lone
BCOl?0 of the gnntU was made early in
tho Ural half when Fub.leln, the speedy
little quarterback of tlie orange and
white oleven, kicked n beautiful goal
from the Held.
The contest wan hard fought front
start lo finish; both teams playing a
fast and snappy game and snowing
froquor.t tiaahcH of brilliant form that
would have been a Credit to them In
contests later In Hie season. Ibe
elevens were evenly mulched In
weight, but tho warriors of William
ami Mary showed better training than
did the Ahhland boys.
Itaiulolpb-Maeon kicked Off to Will?
iam and .Mary und so strong was tho
defense Of the Ashland loom that the
ohingo and white were forced to rc-'j1
sort to the punt lug game. The Wlll
Ininsburg uoys clearly outclassed their
opponents lu this department ami fol?
lowing tin Interchange of kicks \\ ill
lam and Mary forced Kniidnlpli-Macon
back down the Ib id near its own goal.
The Ashland boys attempted an on
stdu kick, but William and Mary re?
ceived the ball on the twenty yard
line. Finding the llnndolph-Mneoii de
tense prhctlcnlly Invulnerable, Fill
steill made li pretty drop kick for goal,
scoring the only points of the match.
Referee's Mistake.
Following iho drop kick, the referee
carried the ball out ami forced Rait
doiph-Macdn to kick to William ami
Mary from the former's twenty live
yard line, whereas Hie rules require
that the ball should have been kicked
Off from the center of the Held. This
mistake possibly had n bottling on the
-eoii'. for after recovering the ball
from WMIInni and Mary on a kick, the
Randolph Mason team carried it down
the Held for sixty yards by end inns
and line plunges, had the klckott I.n
from the center of the (leid, the Ash
laud boys might have scored.
During the second half William and
Mary seemed to be content with
keeping the Randolph-Macon warriors
from scoring, for they seldom attempt
ed to carry the ball, resorting to the
kicking game almost every time the I
ball was In their possession, (in the)
other hiintl the Randolph-Macon teanii
continued to ping away at the orange
an,) white line, but every time they got'
within the danger /.one, William and l
Mary held safe, leceUed tllO ball on)
downs und proceeded to kick out of
Good .Judnment Shown.
William and Mary showed oxceloilt
Judgment at all stages of the match
and played with a snap and a vim
that ?surprised and baffled their op?
ponents. When the team is a little'
more (reasoned it win be a match fort
any of Its weight In tlie State and the
indications are that It will give Hieb-1
