Off 18 Yards, Scrimmage
By Lou't Anderson
Playing list ossly and far below
expectations, a tired Denison high
school Yellow Jacket team drop-
ped a 13 to 6 season-opener to
Greenvil ie high Lions Friday nighl
before a near capacity crowd esti-
mated at 3,000.
Fans, hoping to see another
great team in comparison with
the 193(5 machine, left the Hunt
county center disappointed, but
believing the Jackets have the
ability to come to the front be-
fore the conference opener against
£herman, October 22.
Elva Baker's Lions, starting
slowly, gathered momentum in the
second period to score twice and
win the game, assisted ably, by
eleven Jackets who literally threw
the game into their laps.
The Jackets drew first blood
in the second quarter after they
had worked their way down from
Greenville's 27-yard line after a
fumble by Stinebaugh was re-
covered by Ed Harris, Jacket half.
A series of p'tunges by Larry Phil-
lips, Oliver Jackson and Fred
Taylor carried the ball to the 4-
yard line, where Jackson smashed
over right tackle to score stand-
ing up. Taylor's try for extra
point was wide.
Liom Retaliate
Undaunted by the superior play
of the Jackets, the Lions came
back in the same quarter to score
twice and win. The first counter
came when a 5-yard penalty com-
bined with several line plunges,
to.n'oce the ball on the 4. A tackle
buck by Franks put the ball across
the marker to tie the score. Mor-
ris' kick was low.
A few minutes after the kick-
off, standing on his own 40-yard!
line, Jackson heaved a flatzone
pass to Shearer, only to have it
intercepted by Terry, Lion half,
who scampered down the left side
lines for the score. He nabbed the
throw on his own 45 and was
never touched by a Jacket as he
ran in a straight line for the
Jacket goal. Two Jacket tacklers,
threatening to catch Terry from
behind, were blocked out vicious-
ly by Morris, Lion tackle.
Start In Form
The Jackets started out like a
million dollars the first quarter,
but lost them immediately after
they had scored their lone tally
.From then on the game was the
Lions', who outgained them on
the ground 169 yards to 18.
Denison managed to score one
first down while the Hunt county
crew piled up B. i
M. F.. Vandiver, Jacket tackle,
end Hawkins, Greenville center,
were ejected from the game late
Jn the third period for fighting.
Only the closing whfstle pre-
vented the Lions from scoring
agnin. As the time expired, the
Lions had worked the ba'<,
through a series of running plays,
featuring off-tackle smashes and;
Sweeping eivd runs, down to the
Jacket fl-ynrd line, obviously
headed for pay dirt. On other oc-
casions the Lions failed to score
only because they Inckad goal line

Burning Trash
Draws Comment
In Local Area
Burning trash in the rear of
business buildings is being called*
to the attention of the fire mar-
shall in Denison, it is understood,
there being several cases of such.
This practice, which is forbid-
den by law, has been allowed to
go on in the face of danger in-
volved and the risk on insurance
collections in case of fire being
highly uncertain.
Although the city has wagons
at the command of the business
concerns and make daily trips up
the alleys in the down town sec-
tion, the practice of burning trash
in the rear goes on uncorrected.
In some cases the fires are per-
mitted to simmer along for hours
with highly inflammable materia!
within only a few feet.
If something is not done about
the matter, Denison is in danger
of a serious fire breaking out.
SHANGHAI—-Locked in a dead-
ly combat for several hours, where
China's two important rivers con-
verge near here, the Japanese le-
gion which had successfully forced
its way up the hill near the Yangt-
se river, were successfully driven
back by the determined Chinese
warriors.
■ Superiority of the Chinese fir-«
ing is manifest to the observers.
Fiercest fighting shortly after
nightfall roared for several hours,
to die down late at night along
all fronts near the city. Special
danger hovered over the interna-
tional settlement area.
Every effort of the Japanese
which are almost incessant, to
take a foothold have proved un-
successful, the Chinese forces
proving entirely too much for
them.
Cholera has broken out within
the international area and at least
200 cases have been segregated,
it is declared.
Plans of Chinese to renew their
intensity of bombarding Japanese
war vessels, is also adding new
threat to the situation for non-
combatants.

City Commission Points Out
They Will be For Protec-
tion of Speeding Visitors
Attempting to put a definite
atop to automobile accidents, or
at least decrease the number, the
city, commission Friday afternoon
voted to purchase two red caution
signels for the corners of Houston
avenue at Sears and Morton street.
In the past a number of out-of-
town cars have been turned over
or wercked at the intesections
when the drivers failed to notice
the dips and struck them at a high
rate of speed. A number of per-
sons have b'een seriously hurt
from the accidents.
The two lights will work from
one sma'il motor, City Engineer
A. M. Brenneke said, and will
flash each two seconds. Motorists
will not be required to come to a
complete halt, but the light will
give them a warning to slow down
before they reach the intersection.
The city commission pointed out
the majority of wrecks did not in-
volve local motorists, only those
from out of the city who did not
know the deep drops at the inter-
sections.
The Mghts will be purchased
from Krause-Bines company at a
cost of 103.15, Mr. Brenneke said.
A number of street stop signs
will be repaired in an attempt to
decrease the number of accidents
occurring hee, according to coun-
cil members.

Under the resolution, the firp

Jewel thieves, while not as ac-

hanging in the background, ready
to step in and filch a valuable

baubles they will go to any
lengths to obtain them. Jewels
are always saleab'J to fences who

GENEVA—Should the plan for
patroling the Mediterranean by
the powers assembled here to end
the piracy of submarines on that
body of water, Russia declared
through its foreign minister Max-
im Litvinoff, that Russia would
"take its own measures."
While not calling the name of
Italy, as such, everyone knew the
meaning of the implication. The
diplomat stated that the name of
the nation he meant "was on the
lip of everyone, although it may
not be pronounced in this hall."
Efforts in trying to uproot the
cause for another European war
are being made at the conference
near here in the Swiss town of
Nyon.
Italy is being urged to join in
the patrol to end the piracy by
submarines in the Mediterranean.
If that nation refuses, it is likely
Great Britain and France will
take it alone. If all other meas-
