KING CRASHES
OVER LINE IN
2ND QUARTER
Frog*’ Fierce Opening
\ Attack Runs Up to
Longhorn Goal But
Sputters and Fails
FORT WORTH, Nov. 17.—>JP) —
Captain Rufus King’s tight-inch
•mash for a Texas touchdown eurly
ill tho second quarter here today
was only ore of the many things
that transpired in the annual clash
between the Texas Longhorn* and
jd Texas Christian University, but for
T tune so destined it that the play
sent Texas into the southwest con
ference leadership.
The dive across the goal line by
tho Texas fullback provided a * to
0 victory over the Frogs and enabled
the Littlefield coached team to re
place Southern Methodist University,
. victims of an upset by Baylor that
♦ shook the Texas football world to
its foundations, as pace-setters.
Hugh’s try for goal sailed square
ly over the uprights, but the orange
line was offside and the ixlrn point
did not count. Failure of the dimin
utive Grubbs. Christian quarterback,
to find his fleet targets time after
time during th contest caused the
?. C. U. offense to sputter and fi
nally to function only at infrequent
intervals after the team had swept
Texas off its feet with a drive of
juggernaut proportions early in the
game.
Frog Rush Halted
Starting on their 32 yard line the
Bell men unleashed an offensive
shortly after the kickoff that car
ried the hell 12 yards from the
Longhorn goal In a swift succession
of line smashes by Grubbs and Int
er. Here the Steers braced and the
ball went over on downs.
In the second quarter the Frogs
seemed headed somewhere when
Perkins plucked one of Grubbs
tossca and again the vanquished
team saw an opportunity slip by
when Griffith fumbled at d Cowley
recovered in the third quarter. I. < •
U. had invaded Texas territory at
thia juncture after Toler bad snared
a pass aid Grubbs had rushed the
ball to the 30-yard stripe.
There were other disappointing
moments when Misciiea turned the
tide against the Frogs and removed
them as conference championship
possibilities. Perkins punted poor
ly in the third quarter, the ball go
ing out of bounds on the Frog 43
jard line. Robertson made 1*5 yards
after receiving a pass irom Grubbs
and the same plavers figured in an
eight vard gain or. the next play,
placing the ball on Texas' 3l >ard
line. A bad pass from Atkins su -
ed over Grubbs’ head and when the
Frog field general recovered the ball
he had lost 20 yard*.
Closing Run I brills
Texas’ overhead defen-e was too
much in the late stages of th* game
when Grubba started a desperate
scoring drive through the air. Brown
intercepted one pn»s and Beattv
caught another.
A. final play which the Frogs were
allowed to make when Perkins’ punt
rolled out of bounds a split second
before the final gun sounded gained
40 yards when TV alker leaded into
the air amid a swarm of tackier
and caught the oval. With a pos
sible victory depending on his cross
ing tho goal forty yards distant
Walker attempted to evade lexas
barks who dived at him. but be «»
brought down and the game "i;
over. ...

Brownsville fans have played
the football game of Friday, over and
over. And will continue to do so for
many days to come.
• • •
Local fandom is mighty proud of
the high school eleven. Their vic
tory over San Benito stirred the fan
I eied imagination of even the most
j conservative fan. They like to talk
of Captain O'Bryan, and hts great
playing at center * * * of Malcolm
ack ‘ * *
of Dan Barnhart and how the tore
through the San Benito line * * * of
Olin Weller and his great thrusts off
tackle * * * of Perez. and his fine
I exhibition until injur* d.
They like to tell of the great play
ing of Carroll * !>»;• at end, his beau
tiful tackling of John Silves
ter on the other end, and the exhibi
tion he pul up in his fir t super
\ alley con to * * * of John Burns
at tackle and how he played the most
inspired game of hi career * * * of
Clarence Bennett at the other tackle
and how lie held his ground and
stopped thru ts at his position like
a stonewall * * * of Buster Monsecs,
guard, his speed, hi* uncanny abil
l ity to plug his side of the line * * *
of Frank Carte* at the other guard
and how he turned back many a
j charge at his position.
• • • .
But t.nerc i~ another thing about
the eleven Laglcs above.there were
the substitutes on tbc bench. They
. pulled for their buddies to fight, a.-.
. they never did before. And the ap
j plause that greeted Placido Gonzales
as he took the injured Perez’ place,
meant a whole lot to this little man.
• * *
But the thing that has appealed to
writer at this time, is the modest
way in which the boys of Fessenden
have taken their victory. There is
none of the braggadocio air about
them. They take the victory as just
another win. They realize, as does
Fessenden, that Jhcrc is competition
ahead—plenty of it.
• • •
To the victors belong the spoils—
but the defeated eleven of Coach
Morrison put up a game fight. They
didn’t quit, of course. They are not
that kind of team. Morrison, un
doubtedly was disappointed in the
j showing of his elub, but he is too
crafty a mentor and too fine a man
j to say other than that Brownsville
I has the best club—and he did just
I that. Morrison congratulated Fes
j senden soon after the close of the
game—and told him so.
• * •
; Win. lo«e or draw gentlemen the
. game goes on just the same. And
I this week-end will see a number of
Valley elevens in action.
• * •
On December 5, at Mercedes, an
\ 11 - \ alley eleven will be picked,
in fart a couple of these kind of
club* will be picked, so says L. H.
Shifflett of Brownsville, chairman
of the \ alley Coaches’ and Offi
cials* league.
• • •
Those to participate in the selec
i tions arc sports writers, coaches of
| the different schools and officials
who have worked in three games or
more this season, hach will be al
lowed one vote each, and he must be
there in person vrhen presenting his
selections.
* • •
tn announcement of interest to
\ alley football fans, is that from
Marshall. Texas, concerning the
suspension of Joel Hunt, roarh of
the college there, from further du
ties in the Junior College circuit
of the stair. It is alleged that
Hunt has been playing ineligible
men on bis squad all season.
• • *
And that brings to mind the rul
ings on eligibility of high school
players, of whom there has been
many during this season. We believe
that the ineligibility penalty should,
in most ra es. be inflicted on the
official who put- the boy into the
game, and the plaver in question is
told that he is eligible, but is not. |
* * *
Many a career has been ruined by
I declaring boys ineligible from fur
• tber participation on his athletic
teams, and the main one of course, is
foothull. \\ hile we do not condone
or uphold a boy who docs not make
his studies, still if he is ineligible
land is playing on the team, and he
believes he is eligible—who's to
! blamd?
• • •
The football game here Friday
was a more or less home-coming
day for local alumni. There was
t harlie t’elaya, now of Rio Grande
City, for instance. Mike was a for
mer star player, himself. In discus
; sing the present team Charlie hit a
popular chord, when he remarked
that the present team was a machine,
whereas in his days “we were just
a bunch of roughnecks trying to win
! by brute force."

.Harry Foehncr of the San Benito
Light, quotes us as saying that there
wouldti t be a left-handed player on
either Fan Benito or Brownsville
elevens when they met Friday. Well,
there wasn't. But our good friend,
Harry, says Bud Adamson, the Grey
J*ounrf . backficld star, kicks a foot
ball with his wrong-foot. But then,

FAYETTEVILLE Ark., Nov. 17.—
; <4*!—The stalwart Arkansas Univer
j sity Razorbacks splashed and splat
tered their way to a 45 to 6 victory
. over the Missouri Miners on a rain
I swept field here today.
The I’orker hacks apparently found
the heavy going to their liking and
had routed the Miners before the
game was five minutes old. With
Bevo Beavers smashing of? tackle
and Dick Miller skirting the ends
the Razorbacks scored one touchdown
in the opening period and one each
in the three remaining quarters.
Weak punts by Beavers gave the
Miners their chance to score in the
rmal period. (Jetting possession of
the .oval on Arkansas 15-yard line
the visitors tried a pass. The aerial
was batted down by an Arkansas
back, only to fall in the waiting arm
of Tomlinson, Miner center, who was
sitting in a mud puddle just over
the goal line.
Between halves of the game the

comed the bulldog to his own lair
today then leaped upon him with all
the ferocity of the jungle beast and
tore him to piece* before the great
est crowd that ever gut in on u bcngal
holiday.
Sixty thousand spectators, n record
for Palmer Stadium, saw Princeton,
after a woblv start, sweep into full
stride and conquer Yale, 12 to 2. with
a spectacularly versatile attack.
Trix Bennett and Eddie Wittmer,
two crashing, smashing hacks, played
' the star roles in this “killing” that
kept Princeton’s slate clear of every
thing except a brace of ties.
The figures of this thrilling game
show how clearly Princeton’s aerial
attack turned the tide, the Tigers
out rushed the bull-dogs, 30! yards
to 165, but at the passing genie, they
completed 11 out of 1R tosses for
•-ains of 108 yards as compared with
the Fli record of tw-o passes com
pleted out of II tried for a net gain
of on!v 23 yard^ The Tigers r^gis

bfb—Michigan State College, which
gave a Freddy Alderman to the Amer
ican Olympic team this year pre
sents Lauren P. Brown, the flying
midget, in its athletic bookings fot
the cross-country season.
Brown, who is variously termed a I 3
midget, half pint and other diminu- »
tives, weighs but 115 pounds by any
man's drug store scales. But the
little distance runner has a track rec
ord which has made him a source of
fear for every track coach in this
section of the country for the last
two years.
As captain of the State College
cross-country t<*am. Brown holds the
Central Intercollegiate individual ti
tle and record made last year. He
is the .Michigan A. A. I', indoor two
mile record holder and has the same
