went down Thursday 21 to 0 against
the smooth well-timed offense of the
Weatlicrford college Coyotes in
Iircckcnridge. The score was account
ed for by three touchdowns a safety
and one extra point.
Using split bucks off tackle runs
and dashes around the ends the Coy-
otes demonstrated their superiority
early In the game scoring their first
touchdown on the second play of the
second period. Receiving a Freshman
punt on their own 45-yard line the
Coyotes profited 15 yards on n clip-
ping penalty then proceeded to click
off the remaining yards to the goal
on end runs and line smashes. Rut-
ledge lenped over the defending wnll
of the Fish line from the one-yard
line for the score. Rico blocked the
try for point.
A few moments later McCnrty
passed 30 yards to Jones who ran
the remaining 25 for a touchdown.
Bradford converted. The third touch-
down came in the third quarter at the
end of a C8-yard drive. Bradford
went over from the 4-yard line on an
nd run and cutback. His kick for
xtra point was wide.
.In the fourth quarter after the
Frosh had stopped a Weatherford
drive on the one-foot line Whatley
attempted some tall strategy by pass-
ing instead of kicking and his pass
went out of bounds in the end zone
for an automatic safety.
The nearest scoring threat of the
Fish was a kickoff return received
by Boutwcll and lateralled to McKin-
ncy who almost got loose. He was
brought down on the Wontherford 30.

In the Center of North
Side Where Abilene
Freshmen gridsters on a muddy
field from the second to the fourth
quarter battled the North Texas Ag
riculturnl college Junior Aggies in a
losing contest for the opening game
for the first year men in the 19vt4
schedule. The young Cowhands wer
touched for a 9 to 0 score.
The attack of the Ags was led b
Beardcn and Boyer crack backs and
were the leading factors in defeating
the Punchers who outweighed the
Farmers by several pounds.
From the second quarter to the
fourth the game was played in n
heavy rainstorm but the locals proved
the superior mudders outplaying the
visitors. The Frosh failed to get the
ball beyond the 60-ynrd stripe.
Simmons gave the Ags their first
score in the second quarter when
Russell Frosh quarter stepped over
the end zone to hand the locals n
Bearden lunged over for a touch-
down late in the fourth quarter after
he and Boyer had smashed through
the visitors line from midfield.
The Ags made numerous goal lino
drives but the Simmons lino held
well. The locals mado nine first
downs ngninst two for the visitors.
Due to the muddy field and the slick
ball In the third quarter the visitors
fumbled and lost the ball on their
own 10 yard. line. However the Cow-
boys played a sensational defensive
game at this point to prevent tho
Aggies from carrying tho pigskin
across the gonl line.
Boutwell' got two teeth hurt In a
head on collision with a member of
the opposing team; and Burnett re-
hurt n soro leg.
Boutwell played n good defensive
gamo nnd backed up tho line in great
Tho freshman offense was ragged
but tho defense was creditable. AH
the drill thus far has centered around
checking tho opposing teams rather
than enrry on a strong offensive at-
tack. Tho line-ups:
Simmons Milligan le; Burnett It;
Ellison Ig; Rice c; Newberry rg;
Vickers rt; Reeves re; Russell qb;
Janoway lh; Walker rh; Fulcher fb.
N. T. A. C Dodson lo; Wimbisin
It; T. Svadlcnak lg; Lewis c; Phyth-

' Officials McCulloch (T. C. U.)

pire; Stoker (Texas) head linesman.
Substitutes for tho Ranchers were:
Isaacs backfield; Boutwell back;
Smith guard; Junell center; McKin-
ney bnckfield; Glas back; Allen
There's something tragic nnd there's
something great about most of tho
football teams Simmons has produced.
We do not believe this year's eleven
will prove any exception.
On quite n few honorable past oc-
casions the Cowboys have been known
to rise to magnificent heights and
conquer that which .was said to be
"unconquerable." Then the same
teams have been known to tnkc a
thrashing lying down from every lit-
tle "puny" college outfit they chanced
Simmons has the habit of playing
"big-time' football against this
state's "Big-time" organizations but
when it comes to mixing It with
something in their own class then
they lapse off into what looks like
a poor junior college club.
The Cowhands will be playing to-
night under just the conditions most
favorable to them. They seem to like
it best when they have everything to
win and nothing: to lose. That's why
we Bay they will give Baylor every-
thing that the term "BATTLE" im-
plies. If the H-S. U. outfit stacks up to
be anything like wc think they will
be tonight then we say the final
count should be something like this
Baylor 14 H-S. U 0
(Note: Remember this guess gc3
only if the Ranchers follow what is
considered the "old Cowboy custom.")

In one of the major dope upsets
this year in tho Texas Conference the
Hurdln-Simmons Cowboys and Trin
ity Tigers played to a scoreless tie at
Waxahachie last Friday afternoon.
Neither team was able to penetrate
beyond the others 10-yard line in a
listless game for the Cowhands and
an inspired game for the Tigers.
The game developed into a punting
duel between the two teams. Gibbs
of Trinity held the Cowboys at bay
and three quarters Addington Em-
cry and Burgamy alternated for the
The Cowhands missed their best
chance to score in tho third quarter
when Theo Rlgsby intercepted a pass
on his own 15 yard line and raced 70
yards to tho Tigers own 15 yard strip
whore ho was downed by Turner.
There the Hardin-Simmons team
failed to produce the necessary drive.
Two running plays failed to gain and
two passes were incomplete as the
chance was lost.
Trinity came near to scoring three
times during the second half but
lacked the necessary drive to capital-
ize on 'any of them.
Pete Cole 105 pound tackle for the
Tigers played an outstanding game
offensively and defensively. He was
responsible for breaking up many of
tho Cowhands' line drives and run-
ning plays found him constantly in
the way. On the offense Cole tore
huge openings for his own ball car-
riers. Pruett halfback was the of-
fensive lender for the Tigers.
Jimmy Ncely stood out for tho
Cowboys in receiving passes and
in the line John Green and Elton
Murphy were outstanding. Day Emery
was the outstanding man in the Hardin-Simmons
The first downs were five to two
in favor of the locals but three for
tho Cowhands were scored late in the
game in their own territory. Neither
team was able to make a sustained
drive at any time.
Coach Les Cranfill started the sec-
ond squad against tho Tigers leav-
ing tficm in for half of tho first quar-
ter. The second string showed up
just as well as the regulars giving
up no first downs. The two first
downs for the Tigers were made
against the regulars.
