J>A6E FOtTR dersonBeats Hendrix 13 to 6 y, Ex-Bobcat Scores One of Touchdowns for Winners SVARKADELPHIA—The Tom Murphy- ;,raiched Henderson State Teachers Reddies opened their season j'^ffith a 13-6 victory over the Hendrix ^Warriors ^n Haygood Field here Fri- A large crowd witnessed the game. •Among the guests were Gov. and Mrs. .. tJarl E. Bailey and T. H. Alford, state -commissioner of education. The Hen- deison and Hendrix bands and the «heenng sections gave a lot of color to the contest The first half was brilliantly played by both teams, and all three touchdowns were made in that period. A heavy shower continued throughout the second half and the wet ball was hard to handle. Henderson took the opening kickoff and started a power game with occasional end runs, which carried the .ball nearly 70 yards to the Hendrix ^four-yard line before the Reddies were stopped. Gragson punted to Parker, ^ who was downed on the Hendrix 45. James of Henderson shot a 10-yard ^pass to Bunce, who outran the Hendrix men to the goal line for the first touchdown. Bunce kicked goal. Hendrix made its big thrust in the I second quarter. After getting the ball 1 in nudfield the Warrior forward passing combination went to work. Gragson passed to E. Smith for 15 yards. Gragson repeated to Smith for four more, and then shot one to Carmical , for eight yards, placing the ball on Henderson's 23-yard line. Hardy plowed the iine for seven yards. Gragson passed twice to Hardy first for two yards and then for four and first down. A plunge neted no gam, but Bragson's pass to Huie in the end zone was good for a touchdown. The atempt to kick goal was wide. After two exchanges of punts Henderson took the ball on its 40-yard line Fletcher Kizzia, former Camden star got away from several tacklers and raced 50 yards., being pulled down on Hendrix 10-yard line. A pass to nsey took the ball within two yards of ^touchdown, but the play was caU _ v ™° n account °f a double off- sides. Then Ramsey took the "'ball on an end-around play and crossed the goal.

By HARRY GRAYSON iVEA Service Sports Editor CINCINNATI - Though much has been written about the Yankees as a defensive unit, man lor man com- parision with the Reds does not give the Bombers , any great advantage in that department in the world series. The Reds' secpnd-base combination of Billy Myers and Lonnie Frey. with Harry Craft behind them in center field, rival the Yankee's line-through- the-middle-of-the-dUunond as far a.s defensive play goes. Myers outhits slick Frank Crosetti. .278 to .234. and though hampered by a bad ankle lately, will have been rested by the time the series opens, and will cover nearly as much ground as the Italian. Frey outhits Joe Gordon. 301. to .282. and is nearly as good a second baseman off the records. Gordon, a fine ball player, has not shown the improvement that was expecjd of him this year. In center, of course, the Yanks carry a preponderance of punch. Joe DiMaggio is«the greatest hitter in baseball. His .385 mark overshadows the .253 'hitting of Harry- Craft. The Cincinnati outfielder will go just as far in any direction as DiMaggio, however. Bill McKechnie's expectation that he would develop into one of the great flycatchers of the game was not unjustified. McCormick Outhits Fancy Dan Dahlgrun Cincinnati has no defensive advantage at first base, where Buck McCormick must take a bow to the fielding prowess of Babe Dahlgren. But when the two go to the plate, it becomes Dalhgven's turn to bend from the waist. McCormick hits .328 to Dahlgrent's .236, and while the Con- cmnatian is not fancy Dan like his rival, he is a sound first baseman. Cincinnati suffers by the comparison at third, where they must stack Bill •Werber is a grand money player, Werber hits 40 points under Rolf's .329. but comes up to the high standard set by the New Hampshire redhead in the field. Werber is a guild monev player too, and William McKechnie expects K lot from him in a short series. Charley Keller j ; , huj| e d U J the Yankee's likely star of the series.

Goodman has been thumpim; a healthy .323. contrasted with Selkirk's .3uti.

While the Yankees have one of the j great catchers of all time in Bill Die- i key. it must be admitted he has slowed up with the stock this season, hitting .30;i against Ernie Lombari's .286. And in lising dark horses, the fellows who may surprse jji the series, Bill McKechnie gives the big Itlaian backstopper tlie No. 1 spot. He bangs a long ball.
