Hill Leads Wildcats In
An Uphill Battle
Last week those Sul Ross Lo-
bocs really frightened the liar-din-Simmons
Bcrlbo witnessed the fray and
'saw very little difference between
tho two teams. You can look for
n "scratchln' " good battlo when
A. C. C. tangles with those Sul
"Jew" Hill the little man thut
ran over around and through
those Bulldogs last week dis-
played an elusive style that may
errn a starting beith in the back
Tore were other outstanding
Cats on the field: George Cole
veteran lineman who reported to
the local training camp late
showed some hard charging and
deadly tackling. He threw tho
T. M. C. boys for several losses.
Robert Stone loomed in the
floodlights many times when he
stopped the fleet backs attempt-
ing to circle U end. Stone is a
sopbomoro; looks like ho may be
another "Ilrit" Pippin in not
From all reports the McMurry
Papooses inuts lmo been full-
fledged warriors when they met
our Kittens in battle last week.
Hero's sad news for some.
"Our coeds" must yield their cs
corts for at least seventy-two
hours. The would-bo scial lions
deserving special mention nre:
Captain Hardegree "0" Pycatt
Johnnie Conncl and Tommy
Campbell. Thc "steadies" also
Their fellow .squadmen expect
contrariness loneliness penni-
lessness but not loveliness from
tbeso ardent lovers of football.

Over a Quarter Century
An oversize squad of Texas
Military College soldiers stormed
A. C. C.'s garrison last Thursday
night and emerged with a 1U-0
victory. Lead by Co-captain
"Red" Smith tho Uulldogs ham-
mered ut an apparently defence-
less Wildcat line to score In tho
early; part of tho first und third
The first counter came nfter u
pass which netted 28 yards for
tho invaders. Vernon Fori est
scoicd on an off-tucklo plunge.
The ball sailed cleanly through
tho uprights for the extra point.
Smith left half for tho Bull-
dogs scored the next points on a
"split buck" which duplicated his
performance of former ycurs. The
try for point went the same way
as A. C. C's scorlnjg attempts.
Tho game was characterized by
numerous fumbles and incom
plete passes on both sides. The
home-talent was particularly un-
fortunate with their passes miss-
ing nine during the fray. The
Bulldogs failed in 'five attempts
but intercepted five passes dur-
ing tho evening. The Wildcats
scored four first downs while the
ictors emerged with five.
The Bulldogs gained 137 yards
by rushing while the opposition
could tally but 01. In 15 punts
T. M. C. amassed an imposing
total of OiO yards. A. C C. boot-
ed the pigskin 13 times for a to-
tal yardage of 400. Tho Bulldogs
drew one more penalty than the
hometown boys. J. D. Rogers ac-
counted for one of the losses for
tho visitors when ho got overly
ambitious and used a fist in the
Hill Loads Wildcats
Tlio finest piece of football dis-
played by tho Wildcats was on
the pnrt of London Hill Abilene
high product. He displayed run-
ning ability which surprised oven
his teammates. Heretofore Hill
hasn't been considered as out-
standing but from now on they'll
be watching him. He scored the
greater pnrt of tho Wildcat yard-
ago by off tackle plunges. Hill
accounted for over three-fourths
of the yards gained by rushing.
It wasn't unusual to see him run
off ten to fifteen yards and in
the second period ho raced
around an end for 22 yards.

Beat McMurry " Says
Howard Green In Letter
Please tell the .team the contents of this letter or
let the boys read it.
I am for tho football team 100 although I will not
likely get to the States in time to see any games. I am
expecting a Texas Conference winning team. Above
all things "beat McMurry." Fight to a finish in every
game and 1 am sure the team can and will win.
I will return home about the 10th of December.
We are going to Manila and probably other points in the
Phillipine Islands to run.
Although I am miles away I am remembering Dear
Ole A. C. C- and am in heart yelling for victory.
I hope you "Bugs" are getting along O. K. and
have the men back that you expected along with others.
Yours truly HOWARD GREEN.
