Murrah Heads Stars. Murrah, the powerful, bulky guard, whose smashing play has stopped every every team that thrust at the Aggie line this year, concluded his football career career in a blaze of glory, opposing his huge form as a bulwark that Centre could not pass. Murrah simply lived up to the game he has played all year --the game that he has put up against Texas on Thanksgiving—and that leaves no more to he said. No more, except that he ranged the field almost as swiftly as the ends—that m Paying Paying defensive center he swept Kubal off his feet—and that he even tackled under punts. t Fred Wilson, the smashing wing who will captain the Aggies next year, was the best end on the field. He swept the Centre interference aside time and again to the runner—his tackling was deadly—his aim aocu- rate—and even under Miller’s long punts he was down like lightning. Wilson earned the honor of drawing the attention of two men after the Kentuckians came out for the second half under the instructions of their coach. , ,. Sammy Sanders contributed his share of the Aggie offensive and until he crumpled on a had leg in the third period played his steady defensne game. Matched with the three All-Conference All-Conference players was work as great by their teammates. Tedd W inn, Dallas Dallas lad, developed from organization teams at A. & M., fought shoulder to shoulder with Murrah and made tackle after tackle in the line, as well as smashing many of the Centre es. It was Winn who snared McMil lTn’s futile attempt to ground the ball when tackled back of the line in the third period and who raced forty-five ________ Following a brief punt exchange the half ended, with the ball in the Aggie’s possession near midfield. .

It was around the Centre left wing—Roberts’ side—that. ‘Tuny” Wilson raced for the final touchdown of the game.- It was the Aggie daring in starting an offensive—perhaps the surprise in the fact that they took the play away from Centre and in the first few moments moments rushed the line on I ontro s own especial style that turned the tide in their favor.
