LAST GAME FOR
JACKETS IN 1946
Coach Mika Murphy and every
member of the high school squad
were in Brown wood Thursday for
the annual tussle with the Brown-
wood team and also the last game
of the season for the Jackets. Re-
ports from Brownwood, where the
game was played at 2:S0, say that
a sell out crowd was present
At full strength, the Jackets had
hopes of outlasting the Lions and
thereby gaining fourth place in the
Stephenville added aiiother vic-
tory to its list of district confer-
ence games Friday night of last
week when the Jackets completely
dominated a game with the Ran-
ger Bull Dogs. The final score was
37 to 19, yet that only fairly well
tells the difference in the strength
of the two elevens. Statistics show
that Stephenville had a total of
278 yards rushing while the visi-
tors could only register 84. The
only department where Ranger ex-
celled was in passing when they
completed 10 of 17 tries for a gain
of 181 yards. These, however, came
mostly while Jacket
half Stephenville's Dunn made an-
other end run to score 0 and the
extra point was scored on this try.
The second half got off to a
mod start for Stephenville when
Dunn went around end for 0. On
a long Stephenville pass to Smith,
another 0 was marked upi with
Smith carrying over.
• Ranger's next score came after
Carlin hail carried down the field
about forty yards in a series of
plays and a pass from A ter burn
to Deaton set up for the touchdown
which was made by Aternburn on
an end run. Ranger’s last score
was made on a long pass from
Aterbum to Deaton who went over
standing up and the extra point
was made on the try. Aterbum,
finding himself well covered on
attempting to pass to Deaton, made
a neat leap in the air to toss off
the long accurate pass.
Starting line-up for Stephenville
was: ends, Glenn and Deaver; tack-
les, Parnell and Willingham;
guards, Canady and Scott; center,
Alexander; backs, Smith, Dunn,

quickly pushed over a

within a few minutes it was an-
other touchdown when a long pass
from Smith to Glenn set up the
team in scoring position for Jones
on an end around.
On a pass from Aterbum to
Frazier and a lateral to MacDonald
the latter fumbled. On an attempt-
ed quick kick by Ranger Stephen-
ville recovered and Dunn went over
for another 6 points.
In the second quarter, Cole in-
tercepted a Stephenville pass to
