REVIEW OF PAST FOOTS
SHOWS MAN GOOD RESULT
HILL BILLIES HAVE MORE T. I. A. A. GAMES
THAN ANY OTHER TEAM
Wheii Coaches IliKgiiihothntn nmKpPosslbly duo to having made trip
Glbbs founded the first call for foot-
toll practice nt the beginning of the
season and the men reported they
Immediately resolved Hint they hud n
task on their hands
'Daniel Baker is the smallest college
In the matter nf enrollment In the T.
I. A. A. and the smullesl standard A
college In the Mate. Hut It ranks
among the. highest In literary stnnd-
Ing ami that means far from the low-
est In the college work.
As would be expected of such a
small student body the number of
male students Is comparatively low
and the task of selecting a football
team to compete with the colleges of
the state that have anywhere from
twice to ten and fifteen times as
many men enrolled presents quite a
. About thirty candidates reported
for the first practice and the same
oumber reported tit the final pructlce
before Thanksgiving. Of this num-
ber otdy about five or six letter men
were to be counted the team losing
eight from the preceding; year. The
remainder of the material was either
high school men or just raw recruits.
With good hard work on the part of
the men and coaches a fairly 'well
developed team faced Schrelner's In-
stitute Iti the opening game. The Hill
Billies were 'successful und easily de-
feated the Mountaineers by a score of
38 to 7. Practically every man In
Uniform was played during the game
giving the coaches a chance to sccMiis
men In action.
The next game was played at Fart
Worth ogainst Texas Christian Uni-
versity n member of the Southwest-
ern Association on October 4. Al-
though doped to be easy meat for
Christians the Hill Hlllles whipped
the Horned Frogs in every depart-
ment of play. Daniel Maker scored
first and held the lead practically all
the game hut losing in the. final few
minutes whenT. C. V. lucked out on
a' fair sliced hreuk winning 13 to 12.
.The. Hill nillies outfought the suppos-
ed superior team and the powerful de-
fense of Daniel Baker stayed off the
terrific drives of the Frogs all during
the game hpldlng them for downs
practically every time und twice with-
labour yards of the goal.
On October 10 Daniel Baker and
Huntsvllle Normal buttled to n score-
less tie on the Hear Cats field. The
air tight defense nf the Hill nillies
guarded against every attempt of the
penitentiary town hoys and yet tliey
could nut summon enough offense to
core a counter
The Hill llillies next played the
Denton Normal team at Denton on
October 17. Denton finished second
In Mm T. I. A. A. this yeur. Daniel
Baker held the Eagles scoreless until
the' last few minutes of play when
Denton got in position and kicked a
Held: goal. Then Daniel Daker made
a Anal effort to score by passes and
Denton Intercepted one and ran for
Cpach .Meager's Catholics from St.
.Siwards College came next oi the
schedule -the game being played ut
Brownwood on October 84. Accord
. IM to all authorities on football v.lw
"witnessed this gume guve the news-
paper decision ta Daniel Bukrr. Hie
CatBoltcs were held by an air tight
defense; and were never able to run
' tbe ball for any gains. Had the Hill
WUllles been as powerful on the of-
fcu4 as on the defense the game
would. have turned out differently
.Panlel Baker gained ground consist-
ently but were unable to summon the
feeessary punch to put It over after
Vjeyvhad made for themselves tbe op-
" portunlty to score several times. The
ItiaJ'score was 7 to 0 In favor of the
Catholics as a result of an accurate
' ftua.by Stuessy and Allet receiving.
J It was by forward passes only that
Catholics were able to gain.
ij Then came tbe first of two game's
at 'Abilene faceting Simmons College
faramore Field on October 31st.
MOST SUCCESSFUL SEASON
to Abilene on the day of the game
the Hill llillies plnyiV a very loose
game being rivaled only by the other
game played at Abilene against A.
C. C. liven with the slowness of the
Hill Hilly team the score of 17 to 0
was not representative of the fight
they put up. Simmons scored 10 of
this by the Christmas present route.
The other score was the only touch
down innilc tbroHgh Daniel Baker's
line all during the year.
The following week the Hill Hll-
lles traveled to San Marcos to meet
the Hob Cats who were still in the
championship race. The Dunlel Ba
ker defense wus impregnable only
once did San Marcos get within our
25-yard xone. The Hill llillies had
several chances to sew up the game
after carrying the ball down within
striking distance but it seemed that
the backs could nut get together nt
the crucial moments and ns n result
Sun Murcos won the contest by virtue
of three field goals kieked from the
poison toe of Hopsou.
The dope on the Trinity game stag-
ed for Armistice Day was just about
evenly divided with Daniel Baker. The
game was played on the Dunlel Baker
gridiron and ended in n victory for
tiic Blue and White. Trinity's 'every
effort was smont tiered in this game
by the powerful forwards of the Hill
Billies. Time after lime the Gouts

in an array of uniforms us dissimilar

But when the struggle ended the

team of the rival town of Cisco by
the score of 10 to 0 and there was
great jubilation in llliing Stnr.
