In their Houston and Fort Worth camps Rice and Colorado prepared for their last few days of hard work.

TexasJJrid title East Texas Team Puts dfi ? Second Half Drive for Championship COTTON BOWL, Dallas— Longview's loping Loboes, carrying -the banner of East Texas, staged a great second half drive here Saturday after* noon to win the gridiron championship of the Texas Inlerscolastlc League whipping the Wichita falls Coyotes 19 to 12 as 18,000 spectators looked oh in amazes nnt. It was the first time in history that an East Texas team had occupied the championship throne. Trailing at the half by a 12-7 score, the Loboes put on their traditional second period drive to soundly outclass the Northwest Texas eleven that had capitalized on two breaks^in the first period ringing Up a 12-point' lead. . . , Again it was Dandy Dick Miller, fcrilllant halfback who carried the'Lo- boes to victory. Miller turned in^a'pair of touchdown gallops, each for 55 yards, that left the spectators •'dizzy. Only one time duringf the entire game did Harold Fleming, the preaching fullback of the Wichita Falls team fail to punt out of bounds and on this • occasion Dandy Dick took the ball in his arms standing on his own 45 yard strips and aided by machine-like blocking, tripped across the goal line for the E-Tcxans initial score. Ray Control], southpaw kicker, added the extra point with a beautiful placekick. The Longview fans, who had been tearing their hair prior to Dick's touchdown scamper, went wild, even though their team was still trailing. The half gun found the Coyotes still leading 12-7. At the end of the third stanza the lads from the tall piney woods of,East Texas were still behind by the same score. With only nine minutes left to play in the final chapter, Lebus, Lobo back, shot a five yard pass to Dangerous Dick and the latter drove through the entire opposing team for the winning marker.
