RANCHERS BATTLE WEST TEXAS STATE
Buffaloes Boast Perfect
Record In Previous Play
The Border Conference spotlight moves to Abilcno tonight as
two of the league's three unbeaten teams Hartlin-Simmons and West
Texas State meet in a traditional clash on Parramorc field at 8:00.
Confident that this is the year to gain revenge for some of their
mniiy defeats the Cowboys have handed them through tho years the
Buffalo team will be escorted by its band and bus loads of supporters

Tho two victories over Centenary
and Texas Mines and the tic with
strong San Joae proved definitely
that tho Woodson system is installed
at Hardin-SImmons and that tho Cow
boys are once more rolling along tho
Fans who couldn't understand why
tho Cowboy team lost two consecutive
games at tho beginning of this sea-
son following an amazing undefeated
untied record of last year did not
realize that 13 outstanding players of
that amazing 1040 team graduated
and that a new coach and a new
system took over this year.
Coach Woodson has accomplished
tho seemingly impossible by so defi-
nitely establishing such a completely
new offensive system in tho short
length of time he has been at Hardin-
Simmons. Tho big scores that the
Cowboys ran up against Centenary
and Texas Mines arc duo largely to
strategic substitutions made by Wood-
son. Tonight tho most important con-
ference game of the week and prob-
ably tho Cowboys' most important
game of tho year will be played on
Parramore field. A perfect stage has
been set by both the Cowboys and the
The Buffaloes have a perfect all-
season record and only tonight's bout
can spoil their chances of at least a
tie for first place.
Reports from Canyon indicate that
tho West Texas student body thinks
this is definitely their year against
Hardin-Simmons as well as other op-
ponents and they believe their team
will avenge itself for the" 13 times
II-SU has defeated their school in tho
past. Incidently statistics of the an-
cient rivalry show that West Texas
has defeated the Cowboys only twice
during their many meetings.
The importance from tho Border
conference angle 'is that the winner
of tonight's battle will" probably tie
with Arizona University for tho cham-
pionship and maybe receive a bid to
the Sun Bowl on New Year's day.
Only conference game remaining on
the Cowboys' schedule is tho under-
rated Arizona State of Tempo and
the Buffaloes have only the Texas
Mines to contend with.
At least three major teams will ap-
pear on tho Cowboy 1942 schedule.
Games with Texas Tech Baylor and
SMU are definite and a game with
another Southwest conference team
Admittance to the Border Circuit
certainly raised our football standard
this year and with next year's tough
line-up Hardin-Simmons will definite-
ly bo raised from the class of minor

Coach Woodson's boys walloped
Texas Mines 44 to 14 in their first

From tho standpoint of seasonal
records West Texas brings its team

show that Woodson's team has not

low Jackets are definitely below our

ability when the Hardin-Simmons
game rolls around and as result the
score is always close. '
Even though the cancelling of this
game would spoil an aged rivalry and
ideal Homecoming tilts for both
schools it is still true that the Cow

less this game is made a warm-up
bout for tho Cowboys.

The Hardin-Simmons Cowboys
mixed bone-crushing power with aerial
razzle-dazzle to ring up an over-
whelming 44 to 14 victory over Texas
Mines in the initial Border 'Confer
ence games at El Paso Saturday.
The win sent Hardin-Simmons into
a three-day tie with tho University
ol Arizona and West Texas State In
the conference flag race.
The Cowboys showed too ruffeed
and speedy a running irame for the
Miners and were superior in the air.
ihe only department in which the EI
Pasoans excelled was in punting.
Owen Price Mines quarterback and
leading punter in the nation last sea-
son had a 4-yard average in the
The Cowboys scored in every per-
iod. In the opening quarter Strib-
llng dived over from the two after
Evans passed to II. C. Burrus for 24
yards. Evans also plunged over from
the two in this period. Evans scored
from tho one in tho second period and
Stribling went 14 on a reverse for his
second touchdown in this quarter.
Truitt Rattan who turned out an
amazing performance at left tackle
was the principle figure in ganging
Price behind his own goal lino for a
safety in the third quarter.
A 30 yard pass from Evans counted
for six points early in tho fourth
quarter and Chadwick made the final
marker on a seven-yard plunge.
The Miners were able to get their
passing attack working spasmodically
scoring in the second and fourth per-
iods. Jim Wardy passed to Jack Tel-
ford for 21 yards and tho first touch-
down and Price plunged over from
the two after a series of passing
plays carried tho Miners more than
half tho length of the field.
The gun saved the Miners from a
worse defeat as the Cowboy second
string had advanced to the two-yard
stripe when the game ended.
