STANISLAUS COLLEGE * ¥ NOTES FOR THE WEEK. * ¥ ¥ ¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥ STATE NORMAL SWAMPED. The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-Chaw? showed all of their old time fighting spirit on the S. S. C. Gridiron Satur. day, the sth, by turning back the heavy State Normal Eleven by a score of 49 to 0. The Normal team did not come but once with the prospects of mak ing a touchdown, as the Rock-a- Chaws were at all times on the wat h out and on their toes to quell any thing of the sort. On ■'he kirk-off the Normal team received. the ball several yards towards the Rock-a-Chaws goal. They were held for downs af ter a few minutes of play; due to the good playing of Cerniglia at left tackle and Reed at guard for the College. These men found no diffi culty in getting through the Normal Line and holding them for loses. The ball then came into the pos session of the Rock-a-Chaws. The first play, a pass from Jaubert to Glover netted them the 35 yards. Several end runs by Glover and Fru gal and passes by Jaubert brought the ball closer to the Normal Goal. Yhen all of a sudden Fruge scooted right end over a broken field of 30 yards for the first touchdown of the gam. Jordy kicked goal. On the second kick-off the Normal team received the ball but were held in their tracks. Then they lost the ball on downs. Upon receiving the ball the Rock-a-Chaws displayed a good brand of football playing. End runs by Glover and Fruge aided by the line bucking of Jaubert brought the ball within eight yards of the Normal goal. When Fruge carried the ball over for his second touch down of the game. Jordy kicked goal. The first quarter ended with the hall in possession of the Hatties burg Boys. The Normal team played a better brand of ball in the second quarter than in the first, holding the college to one touchdown. Some classy broken field running by “THE DEER FOOTED FRUGI*’ and the “HEFTY LITTLE CAPTAIN” of the Rock-a-Chaws brought the ball within twenty-five yards of the Up per State Boys goal, when Jaubert made a beautiful pass to Schiro who carried the ball over for the third touchdown of the game. Glover kicked goal. The next touchdown was made by Jaubert after the ball had been worked down the field in “Double Quick Time.” Jordy kicked goal. Touchdowns numbers five and six were made by one Mr. Schiro nett ing him a total of three touchdowns during the game. The touchdowns were the results of the good passing of Jaubert. Jordy and Glover kick ed goals. It was during the last quarter that the State Normal Boys came the closest to making a touchdown, but all was in vain; for the fighting Rock-a-Chaws turned them back. About this time Quarter-back Glov er realized that he had not made a touchdown, he then grasped the ball and ran through a broken field of thirty yards for the last touchdown of the game. Thi s play was in the last part of the game, after which the Normal boys thanked the Good PROGRAM A. & G. THEATRE. Monday, November 14th— Wanda Hawley in “The Snob and Mutt and Jeff comedy. Tuesday, November 15th— “ Straight is the Way” A Para mount production and Fox News. Wednesday, November 16th — Buck Jones in “The One Man Trail” and comedy. Thursday, November 17th— “ The Splendid Hazard” an Alan Dwain production and Prizma—a reel of nature’s colors. Friday, November 18th— Tom Moore in “The Great Acci dent” and Fox News. Saturday, November 19th— Monte Blue in “The Kentuckians” and two-reel Sunshine comedy. Lord and said, Amen. The features of the game were the broken field running of Glover and Fruge, and the passing of Jaubert to Schiro who failed not in the attempt to carry the ball over for three touchdowns. Of all the teams the Rock-a-Chaw r s have played, the Hattiesburg Boys played a cleaner game and were more manly in their acts, although they were out-played from the start than any visiting team that has ap peared on the S. S. C. Gridiron. CURIOSITY. We wonder if Fruge wouldn’t have enjoyed it, if he had had some one to keep him company while playing “SAFETY.” Who said, “that the Yellow jer seys that the Normal boys wore were and index to their fighting spirit.” Why is it that Cyril can use such nice language and speak so calmly to his team, and get the results that he does from them. SCHOOL NOTES. With the football season at its height and the two best games on the schedule at hand, one is not likely to think of basket-ball. But the basket-ball season is only three weeks away. Last Sunday being an “off day” so to speak ,the first bas ket-ball practice was called. Mem bers of the football squad were not allowed to play, but nevertheless there were some snappy games. Sev. eral new comers showed up excep tionally well in the initial work outs. Stanislaus expects to be represen ted this year by four basket-ball teams: “The Varsity,” “The Res erves”, “The One-Hundred and thirty Pound” and ’’The Sixty-three Inch.” W T ith these four teams we expect to be able to cope with any team, no matter what size or caliber in this part of the country. This year, as usual, the teams will be put through a very heavy schedule. Bay lor University, of Waco, Tex., whom S. S. C. defeated 22 to 20 last year is already signed for a game in Jan uary. Among the teams likely to be seen in action here are: Tulane, L. S. U., Mobile Sporting Goods and Auburn. THE PEP CLUB. The Pep Club organized last week for the purpose of giving everybody a chance to help the teams win by keeping up the morale. They made their first public appearance at last Saturday’s game. They made a fine showing and kept the team fighting from whistle to whistle. During this week however, they have practised a little and hope to make a better showing next Sunday when we meet “The Loyalo Team.” The town folks need not be ba: hf :1 if any of them wish to help out St. Stanislaus, which is the Alma Mater of most of them, all they have to do is lend the Pop Club their voice.

In a public address at Owensboro, (Ky) recently Senator Pat Harrison of Mississippi declared the Demo crats “see victory in 1924 in th e air and the principles for which Wood row Wilson fought vindicated.” Mr. Harrison spoke at the request of Urey Woodson, publisher and for mer member and secretary of the Democratic National Committee. “I attended a meeting of the Democratic National Committee in St. Louis, said the Senator. “The meeting was one of the most har monious ever experienced by the Democrats. Every one in attendance worked with one object in view— harmony—and they got it. The sel ection of Cordell Hull as national chairman met with th e approval of every Democrat in attendance at the meeting. The Democrats are mili tant. They will present a united front from now until the national election in 1924. They see victory in the air, and the nation will yet see the principles for which Wood row Wilson fought vindicated.” Coast Crop Growing by Boys High. Officials of the Perkinston Agri cultural High School are planning one of the biggest campaigns in agriculture ever offered th e boys of Harrison or Ston e counties in con nection with the curriculum of the school. There are on the cast, Thos. I. Cook, general superintendent and R. M. Coaman, practical instructor, who are making liberal offers to the boys to attend this instittuion. The plan is to give each boy in Harrison county desiring to enter the school one and one-half acres of land, fur nish feed and fertilizer to plant it in sweet potatoes, the crop of which will be marketed and the proceeds allowed to pay his expenses while attending school. The campaign is being carried on through local public schools and has been approved by coast educators. Modern Road for Coast and Mobile. A block of bonds, totalling $387,- 000 was sold Monday by Board of Supervisors of Jackson County to J. M. Vardaman. The money will be spent to build a hard surfaced road from Ocean Springs, Miss., to the Al.ba.na state line, Mobile Cos. The improvements will be apprecia ted by th e tourists and travels not only along the Old Spanish Trail but will prove a business convenience to establishments in both Alabama and Mississippi. Mr Vardanian purchas ed the bonds for the Bank of Com merce and Trust Company, of Mem phis, Tenn. Federal aid will also be available for this project. Work of the road will begin shortly. ■—There was an interesting pro gram for Armistice Day at the Cen tral School yesterday forenoon. Supt. Leon McCluer, who saw active service overseas, and who was at Metz on the memorable November 11th, 1918, made a most interesting and appropriate talk. The different numbers by the pupils were well re ceived.
