HARDIN-SIMMONS UNIVERSITY ABILENE TEXAS OCTOBER 5 1935
COWBOYS DEFEAT ST. EDWARDS TIGERS 21-0
It looks like a good week.
Mnrmnduko McAdoo the elongated
boy who would like to do some trif-
ling on Clara decided along in the
summer that his manly nowers were
wasting so he dropped his hoe andj
strode into the presence of Miss
Katheryn Schultz and demanded at-
tention. Miss Schultz was all smiles
and apologies still is in fact but she
used the old gag of a steady or some-
thing quite effectively. The duke is
still trying and failing.
When it comes to stealing towels

lnrge clean ones will satisfy him.
Under tho present system there is
very little scandal to report on foot-
Some of the girls at home would
not be so proud of their band - boy
letters if they knew just what the
lads were doing while sweating fresh-
men did the writing.
Two strange girls pulled up beside
a curb on which John Hardesty was
standing along with a dozen or bo
other yokels but their eyes were all
for John. They crooked their fingers
and murmured "Come on Johnnie"

Judging from the peculiar action
of the professor of journalism you
never can tell what a man will do
still people have just about as much
fun as anybody.
Klnard has torn out after the Rceso
girls in a way that surprises even his
best friends. Dopesters give him an-
other week before they both discard

Coach Frank Kimbrough's Cowboys
rode herd on eleven striving St. Ed-
wnrds Tigers here last night roped
tied nnd branded the whole pack and
sent them back to Austin on tho
rough end of a 21 to 0 drubbing.
Apparently finding their bearings
for the first time In three stnrU this
season the Hnrdin-Simmonsitcs' at
tack clicked by both land nnd air for
tho better part of CO minutes. The
Cowhand aerial barrage and power-
house hit full atrlflo shnrtlv nfter the
opening whistles nnd consistently ac
counted for lengthy gains.
Following nn exchange of punts
that launched the opening frame tho
Ranchers took the ball in the vicinity
of their own 30 yard line and passed
and drove nearly 80 yards for their
first trip into pay dirt under Coach
Kimbrough this year. Most of tho
distance was negotiated with a series
of passes from Mahuron to Benson
and Harris. Onco Inside the Tiger

midclle of tho second quarter from a
drive that began about midfield. Ty
ler and Cherry in successive thrusts
placed the ball on tho St. Edwards 7
yard line. Tyler crossed tho goal on
a delayed buck over center after tho
two prececding tries had set tho ball
on the ono yard line.
St. Edwards longest runs of tno
evening were made by Joe Devaney
on tho return of kick-offs. In the
fourth quarter he returned tho ball
nearly CO yards to top off a similar
run of 40 yards when hostilities were
renewed after the Intermission.
Coach Kimbrough used practically
his entire squad of 41 players ex-
cept Hall and Clary who did not get
into the game because of illness and
injuries. His "shock-troopers" saw
service In every frame as he sent
them to and from tho bench. Tho
Cowhnnds scored in every quarter ex
cept the third during which tho "sec
ond-stringers" held the field but were
unable to convert when they came
anywhere near scoring distance.
Hardin-Simmons final touchdown
push began shortly after the fourth
quarter began. St. Edwards inter-
cepted a pass on their own 10 yard
lino nnd punted on third down after
failing to gain. Tyler took tho punt
and advanced 10 yards to his 0wn 40

Tigers drew two penalties for off-side
