Hughes, one of the ranking conference ••, members, just barely nosed,them, out by a_ single touchdown and conversion llic week before the,.Osceola-igame and are dilB to be. even more formidable. The Seminole chieftain was well pleased with the manner In which the- tribe ..polished off Hughes. Ho described the game as exceedingly titter and hard fought. But the Seminolcs proved just as rough, matching everything they bad . to offer and then some for the winning margin. Coach : Ts Satisfied Especially was Chief Bourns well :pleased with the fine 'stand exhibited by the tribal frontline defense. Despite the fact (lie)' were badly outweighed, by virtue of two Hughes tackles that scaled 215 and 245 apiece, the front line defense held most of the way. A careful check revealed the line, made ,49 .tackles to 19 for the backfield. < Held'.to a scoreless first half, the. Seminolcs broke loose with a pair of touchdowns .In the. third and fourth quarters. Tom Cross, the tall, brilliant end who Is developing.into one of the best wingmon In the .loop, intercepted a pass for one Osceola touchdown, and .grabbed inn- ether before it was all over. It was his fine 2-nmu block that cleared the final way for Fullback Denver Wilson to goiover on-his scintillating 65-yard ; dash, She longest of the game. Lloyd Griffin, tackle, • Gene Butler, and Tommy Bannister) were especially outstanding; also ( 'Kramer and Robert c. Driver. Two important fine'changes have strengthened the locals. Tommy Bannister, brother to Freddie, and 'Jimmy Carlisle have come through beautifully at right.- tackle and light end, respectively. No other changes are anticipated for this week. DOPE BUCKET Bl J.

John Cecil Cox, former manager of the local Goodyear store, quite likely feels like laying claim to the hnrd luck title of the year. iYou.see, it's:like this..John Cecil is a rabid baseball fan and stationed in Honolulu. About two weeks 'ago the Ariiiy and Navy louring teams, studded with the choice of major league stars who are In the service, played a scries in Honolulu^ described ns the Service World Series. And where do you Imagine John Cecil was? It's my sad duty to report .that ho was not on the front.row all keyed up and riding the clouds like I was last week In St. Louis, instead, he had a nice, comfortable bed, in the hospital. Ain't that a shame? Knowing John Cecil as I do, It must have been a severe shock. He already had written that 1m was looking forward to the series, and promised to send a detailed report, especially since he knew that 1 would be Intensely Interested. Then, too, he was certain I would pass it oil to the other fans and fellows who could not attend. His excitedly Interesting letter follows: , . PPG John c. Cox, 230th Ord. (Main) Co.
