t^U':Of / a football game that was re-

/// -Many were satisfied with the out
of the .game Saturday, but
•/Snore were not. To many, it ap-
-Speared almost in the sense of a de-
:.jfeat after the Tigers had outfought
rJjand outplayed the visitors from
^Wichita Falls, to have the game
.end dn a scoreless tie.
’ Of* the many different factors
i^which combined to make Saturday’s
/game outstanding for clean, good
' iootball, Hammond’s punting was
, easily the feature. Dozens of vis-
*-■ itors from Wichita Falls and Ver-
• -aion* alike said, “I thought you did-
. n’t have a kicker.” This was news
,even to the Electra spectators. No
one knew that Hammond could kick
like he did. Curtin ' of the Coyotes
did well, but Hammond kicked like
a- collegian throughout, being cred-
ited with the remarkable average of
Second to Hammond’s kicking we
would place the brilliant open field
running of Guy Thomas in bring-
ing back punts. Although he fumbl-
ed more than was usual for him as
safety man, when he got started,
He was invariably good for ten to
twenty-five yards, in which his
.change of pace along with excel-
lent dodging, brought the crowd to
its feet repeatedly.
- ucdiiohal Factor
Some several hundred fans have
told Hammond how they would have
ivon the game with a place kick.
Maybe so. It is doubtful if his
judgment could have been criticised
^except in the last half. In the first
- part of the-game a touchdown look-
ed good and the Tigers were work-
ing fine. However, it was not to

the 'educational value’ of such an

A specie from every clime of the

the hippopotamus, that hitherto un-
ruled cumbersome beast. With the

He first appears drawing a cart
about the arena. Later he allows
lions to make merry on his back.
In another part of the performance
he endeavors to keep the elephants
from raising him from the ground.

jungles, the air and the water add
their quota to this unusual perfor-
