LOSES HARD GAME
TO THE PLOWBOYS
Friday of last week the Tarleton
Plowboys defeated the Wichita Falls
Junior College Indians on Hays Field
with a score of 34 to .0.
The Indians held the Plowboys
rather close the first half; however,
the Plowboys gained more ground and
made, more first downs. - It was costly
fumbles that held the Plowboys the
first half. In the last part of the sec-
ond quarter, Houghton made a sensa-
tional left end run for 46 yards and
the first touchdown. Immediately af-
ter that the ball was carried up to the
line and Houghton put it over the
goal. In the second half of the game
it seemed easy to break the Indians'
line at will, and time after time the
ball was put over, Marr dashing 26 .
yards at one time for a touchdown.
The second string gradually came in
and it was easy for them to-hold the
Indians. Tarleton did not pass to any
extent, while the Indians passed time
