VOLUME} XXXIH—NO. 196 Follow the Leader DUBACH HIGH PLUNGERS WIN FROM ARCADIA IN DISTRCT TITLE CAME AT TECH FIELD W. A. Colvin-Hightower Put On Great Individual Duel, With Dubach Quarterback Getting Edge; Smith Scores First Touchdown Through Hornet Line Dubach High School's Plungers, primed and set for a hard game last night, found what they were looking for, but managed t) eke out a 13-2 victory over th'e Arcadia Hornets before approximately 2,500 fans at Tech Stadium. W. A. Colvin III, and Jo Smith, Jr., scored the Plunger touchdowns, while Yarborough accounted for the Hornet points by tackling Harrist, Plunger halfback, in his end-zone after r.n attempted punt. fumbling on The game opened with Dubach kicking to Arcadia, who kicked right back on the second down. Unable to make any headway with either passes or running plays the Plungers were forced to punt most of the first half, while Arcadia, with Gerald Hightower carrying the brunt of the attack, stayed in Dubach territory throughout the half. The Hornets piled up five first downs to none for Dubach during the first two periods, however, were unable to score, or penetrate the Plunger 20 yard line. Knot M. L. K. What's the Matter with Canines? Yesterday's dismal exhibition of gridiron activities by the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, should call for at least some discussion, if not some actual raking over the coals, so to speak. A team the Bulldogs should have beaten by four touchdowns comes up and throws them for a 6-6 tie, and a lucky at that. Blocking was one of the things that the Canines may have about, but interest in, yesterday afternoon is concerned. They didn't give a durn and they proved it. We don't mean to insinuate that they deliberately "threw" the ball game, or anything of the kind. What we do mean to say is that they durn shore didn't play football together. Individually, they may have done displayed very as far as that little Taking the opening kick-off in divldually, they may have done the second half, the Plungers turn- fairl y wel1 - ' but the trouble with ed on the heat, offensively, and individual football is that it doesn't with W.

The in- carrying the ball, ran up six consecutive first downs to place the score many touchdowns, terference yesterday just ran, evidently with their eyes closed.

Harrist, Dubach halfback, standing deep in his end- zone to punt, fumbled momentarily and was tackled by Yarborough, i accounting for the Arcadia 2 point safety. With about 6 minutes to play in the fourth quarter, J. P. Colvin, right tackle, intercepted say with a clear conscience, without malice and -without attempting to tell the boys that we could have done better. However, there was something wrong with the Canines yester- ,fctalki the Dubach one of what it was. They just didn't look ess like a ball club.

Just to prove what ( honor they think of the Canines, they.vana have scheduled two ball games in ' She two days down here. They will play Tech Thanksgiving Day, and and a somewhat better blocking line. The Dubach youngster, now in his senior year, seems headed for Ijis third All-State honor this year, with Harrist, his running mate at halfback,, running a close race for a position on the all-star selections. Dubach now will meet the winner of the Mooringsport-St. Johns game for the district title, while Choudrant, winner over Grayson in the Northeast district Thursday, will meet Waterproof in their next title game. The possibilities are that the two Lincoln Parish schools will fight it out at Tech Stadium /later for the North Louisiana Championship. Las night's defeat was the first suffered by Arcadia this year. Statistics on the game were: first downs—Arcadia 10, Dubach 7; 20 yard line penetrations—Dubach 2, Arcadia 2; Passes attempted—Dubach 10, Arcadia 11; Completions— Dubach 2 for 23 and 15 yards, Arcadia 3 for 13, 18 and 7 yards. (Interceptions—Dubach 3 Arcadia 5; Penalties—Dubach 25 yards, (5 off-side); Arcadia 10 yards, (2 offside); Substitutions—Dubach; Smith for Green; H.

Packed tightly around their waists when they step out of Tech Field will be the Illinois Conference Championship belt, a nice little reminder that they are better than passing fair football players. They have been beaten once this year, Centenary toppling them 197 the first game of the season. They have lost two conference games in five years, another little subject the Canines would do well to mull around in their bonnets this week.
