Tempo For Scoring
Opening up the throttle in their
1035 finale Coach Frank Kimbrough's
Cowhands smashed over Texas Col-
lege of Mines 40 to 0 Nov. 23 to spoil
the Muckers homecoming day and
cinched a bid for the Sun Bowl game
in El Paso Jan. 1.
The Ranchers tallied in every per-
iod and used their entire traveling
sqund of 2(1 men in their rout of the
heretofore powerful Miners. From
the opening whistle the Cowmen took
the situation well in hand although
they were slow in starting and scored
only once in the first quarter.
The initial counter came late in the
period after a Mines' punt on fourth
down was blocked by Simmons and
recovered on the Mucker 20. After
two plays nt the lino failed Mahuron
tossed a long forward to Scroggins
'' in the end zone for touchdown. Cal-
The Cowboys pushid over two more
touchdowns before the half ended aft-
er running the scale in the way of
offensive plays and playing in Mucker
territory most of the time. Passes
and line plays played an important
part in both touchdown drives the
first of which started on the Hnrdin-
Simmons 48 and ended with McKinncy
plunging over from the two-yard line.
Callaway again converted to put his
team ahead 14 to 0.
Shortly after the kick-off a Mines
pass was intercepted on the Mucker
47 by Cleddie Hall who made a
beautiful one arm catch with the arm
he does not carry in the harness. Ho
had a clear field for a touchdown but
Vas he said after the game the shock
of successfully intercepting a pass
was too great so ho just fell down
and was content with that. From
here McKinncy and Tyler led the at-
tack down the field with a display of
laterals forwards and running plays.
McKinncy went over for the tally
from the one-yard line. Green failed
to convert and a few minutes later
the half ended.
The Cowboys unleashing a sizzling
nttack with a mixed first and second
string team swept the weakening
Muckers off their feet in the third
quarter chalking up three more
touchdowns and kicking one point
The first counter came with big Ed
. Cherry ace Cowboy back in tho star-
ring role. Mines kicked off over tho
goal lino and the ball was brought
out to the Cowboys' 20. On tho first
play Cherry took a lateral cut back
side-stepped dodged and streaked C9
yards before ho was brought down.
He picked up 0 yards on tho next play
and carried the ball over on tho sec-
ond attempt. It was a brief glimpse
of tho bald-headed powerhouse but
enough to convince spectators that he
is one of the state's outstanding
backs. Callaway failed to convert
and tho Cowboys had a 20 to 0 lead.
It didn't make any difference re-
gardless of whom tho Cowboys had
in there. A few minutes later Mc-
Kinncy passed to Harris for 38 yards.
McKinncy made eight through the
line then 13 through tho other side
and Howell scotted over. Green con-
verted to make tho score 33 to 0.
Fondren fumbled tho Cowboy kick-
off Simmons recovering on tho
Mucker 25. Howell sprinted around
his left end for tho touchdown and
Selfridgo failed to convert to give tho
visitors a 30 to 0 lead as the quarter
Tho Muckers battled viciously de-
spite tho overwhelming lead through-
out tho fourth quarter and held tho
Cowboys from further scoring until
lato in the period whon another block-
" ed punt tho third of tho afternoon
chalked up by tho fast charging Cow-
boy forwards gavo Simmons tho ball
on Mines 33. Russell skirted right
end for a touchdown and Hall drop
kicked tho extra point to make tho
final count 40 to 0.
When you define liberty you limit
it when you limit it you destroy it.

heights last year against superior op-
position and it is entirely possible the
trick may be turned again this year.

In Chapel Program
Successful 1935 Squad Is
Introduced By Coach
In a chapel program set aside for
that specific purpose tho cntiro stu-
dent body of Hardin-Simmons paid
tribute and gave special recognition
to the university's 1935 Cowboy foot-
ball squad a squad that has risen
to a place of notice in football circles
Fulfilling the prophecies mndo last
spring that the passing season would
mark the introduction of a new deal
in Hardin-Simmons football tho
Cowmen won six of the nine games
played this season and won the ad-
miration of the three major teams
that defeated the rising Ranchmen in
the beginning of tho season. As a
result of the showing made during
the regular season the Cowboys will
encounter the New Mexico Aggies in
a post season gamo New Year's Day
at El Paso.
Wednesday's program was chair-
mancd by Dr. R. N. Richardson vice-
president of tho university. Follow-
ing a short introduction and appre-
ciation to Frank Kimbrough the star
of former Hardin-Simmons squads
who has directed the 1935 Cowboys
in their successful season. Coach
Kimbrough in turn introduced each
of his men.
Tho university faculty was repre-
sented in the appreciation program
by Prof. Joseph E. Burnam chairman
of tho athletic committee. Other
speakers on tho program were Tom
K. Eplen president of the Abilene
chamber of commerce; Mayor C. L.
Johnson and Gordon "Spoofing"
Weir. Tho latter an ex-student
classed the 1935 aggregation as the
most outstanding offensive squad
that had ever represented Simmons
on the grid.

The Sun Bowl beckons and tho
Cowhands will be off before many
more days to sec what they can do
about the New Mcxic6 Aggies. It
might be both fitting and proper to
say at this point that this department
has no misgivings that aro anything
similar to its tragic Howard Payne
The New Year's day classic will
pull an unbelievable amount of pub-
licity and recognition for tho univer-
sity and so a few kind words should
be in order. Something like a year
ago today Hardin-Simmons in a
football way 'was stacked in a most
conspicuous place on the junk heap.
The world certainly was not beating
a path to her door. Today and thanks
to the enthusiasm of a few such as
Solon R. Fcatherston tho odds have
Coach Kimbrough pushed the
Ranchers through their November
schedule undefeated and as it has
been said on many occasions of late
It would be just too bad for Texas
Tech if tho Cowhands were playing
the terrible bone-crushing dirty work
boys again this year.
That old promotion that tho Cow-
boys would some day go places held
so long and so faithfully by many
Simmons backers is becoming a real-
ity. Although far from complete at
this early date the 1930 Cowboy
schedule will pack a wallop from be-
ginning to end. Should the Ranchers
"egg" (Gib hates the Reporter for
using this word) out a victory In the
Sun Bowl additional surprises should
be in store for the homo folks. The
way things are looking now If the
Ranchers can whip the cars off of
several of the big-timers next year
it won't be long until they are big-

Last year there were four Intra-
mural grid teams and the Brand-
Bronco whipped them all. This year
the Prc-Meils the Prc-Laws and the

be three teams there'll be Just two

Bronco and those who play in order

While wo were enjoying tho Thanks-
giving holidays our little columnist
up at Tech has been a very busy per-
son composing supposedly clever and
scathing remarks designed to put
Hardin-Simmons in her proper place.
This latest masterpiece from tho
pen of Cannon brings tears of sym-
pathy to our eyes for this poor mis-

Tho locals hit the touchdown trail
in their next encounter chalking up
a 21-0 win over the St. Edwards
Tigers. In this gamo tho Cowboys
seemed to find themselves and for the
rest of the season played great foot-
ball. In their first intcrscctional battle
the Abilene Baptists smothered the
Mornlngside Maroons 32-0 In Sioux
City Iowa. While in the Middle
West they were paid high tribute by
sports writers and fans of- that sec-
tion. The Ranchers dropped their next
tilt 18-0 but played a brilliant gamo
in holding the Southwest conference
champions and Rose Bowl participants
to a low score. The game played In
Whichita Falls established once nnd
for all the fact that the Hardin-Simmons
griddcrs were on their way up.
Tho Sul Ross Lobocs were tho next
victims of the fast traveling Abilene
club. Punching over a touchdown in
the last few minutes of play to down
the strong Invading club 15-9 the
Cowboys revealed an ability to come
from behind and win.

Serving his first season as coach
Kimbrough has made an enviable
record. His strong personality and
fair play have made him a favorite
of both team and student body. His
success has been justly deserved and
Hardin-Simmons supporters look for-
ward with great anticipation to the
1930 autumnal campaign. Only man
to be lost from the 1935 squad is Cap-
tain Henry Milby halfback from
Edna who has earned three letters
here. Although his blocking and team
spirit will bo missed 'Kimbrough is
grooming several men to take his
place. Milby has boeh one of the most
consistent performers to ever wear
the purple and gold.
