Soph Lits Eliminate Engineers in
Game Featured by Line Plunges
and Trick Plays


Two games in the interclass foot-
ball race were played yesterday after-
noon, the dents defeating the senior
engineers and the soph lits beating the
soph engineers, the first game going
by a 6-0 score and the second by a
20-6 score.
" sterday Ise red to be an off day
for the enghnmer, and in the game
with the dents the seniors were com-
pletely outplayed throughout the pe-
riod. A t the beginning of play the
dents appeared to get the jump on
their opponents and by straight foot-
ball carried the ball down to the en-
gineers' 10-yard line. An end run,
Brown carrying the ball, netted the
touchdown from the 10-yard line. The
dents failed to kick goal and the score
stood 6-0.
Passes attempted by the engineers
failed to connect and the backs were
stopped by the dent line. After the
dents secured the ball the engineer
line held on their 15-yard line, from
where Simmons essayed to goal from
the field, but was thwarted in his de-
sign by the wind, Referee Dorrance
declaring no goal. The remainder of
the half was devoted to a pushing con-
test in the center of the field.
In the second half the teams seemed
to take a brace, and neither could
make any material gain, especially on
line plunges. The dents then resorted
to passing and the engineers tried the
same tactics. Neither team profited
greatly by this method, as nearly all
of the passes, with one or two excep-
tions, were incomplete. Headman, the
engineer full, seemed to be the objec-
tive of the dent offense, even though
when he was not in'the play he was
used by the dents for blocking and
tackling practice. In spite of the evi-
dent partiality shown, for him,
"Whitey" played his usual conisstent
game, breaking up plays and backing
the line.
Frequent fumbles and penalties re-
lieved the monotony of the game. Sev-
eral times when either team seemed
ahout to push over a touchdown, a
fumble or a penalty spoiled the op-
portunity. Exchanges of punts were
numerous, although the wind kept any
long records from being made. Neith-
er team scored during the second pe-
riod and the game ended with the
dents leading by 6 points.
In the semi-finals between the soph
lits and the soph engineers yesterday,
the lits triumphed by the score of 20-6.
By this play the engineers are elim-
inated from the race for the numerals.
Receiving the ball on the kick-off,
the engineers advanced it to the mid-
dle of the field on a set of clever trick
plays, and then using a series of for-
ward passes they carried the ball
down the field, where just before the
end of the first period, Meybeyer got a
pass and took it 20 yards for a touch-
In the next half the sophs came
back strong, and in the first few min-
utes of play, Perry plunged through
the engineers' line for a touchdown.
Champion kicked goal. From this time
on, the lits' line was never in danger,
and they easily outplayed their oppon-
ents, getting another touchdown a lit-
tle later, when Edwards, running 28
yards through a broken field, put the
pigskin across for the second score.
For a time the engineers showed signs
of coming back, but the lits tore up
their line, and with their two invinci-
ble ends, Champion and Leiffler, killed
all chances around the edges.
Just before the end of the game the
