NAGHVILLR TF.NNF.SSEAN ami The Nnshvillr American. SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 30, 1910. o A HARD BA TTLE COMM YARD DISH IN MISSISSJ By GRANTLAND RICE. His name Is Hay Morrison. His ndilross is Some Quarterback, Commodore footbull eleven, cure Vnmlcrblit cumpnu. His main cliaratteristiC3 :iro lho3o of the jack raliblt, villi u ilash of greyhound anil Angora goat, u Iiat elso about lilm? Simply tins leave out rile n-imilcful sinBlc-handea run ilint he made in lirst quarter Saturday arrernoon and Vanderbllt would 2mve beaten Mississippi but :! to 2, Captain N'celey's field goal being arrayed ngalnst the safety be gave Mississippi by unluckily booting tho oval across Ills own goal line. The linal score was 9 to 2, Commodores predominating, and thu margin thus mclntalnt'd centers entirely around ono of the great classic plays of Dudley Field history. Tiirougli the greater part of the 'first quarter, with tile period about closing, Mississippi's powerful defease had held the Commodoro machlno well down In Commodore territory. Fight as Ihey would, the rushing Commodores were umibh-; to pierce the rugged visiting barrier that barred the way. Finally, from mldflold, llaxton of Mississippi lifted a long, high punt which spun down tiio t;!ld to Vanderhilt's twenty-yard lino, where It nestled I:: .Morrison's waiting arms. And then Hie meteor was unleashed. I.Ike a lean, lank coyote running the gauntlet of a swarm of hungry wolves, the Commodoro quarter was off at lull speed up the field. Two visiting tackles g-pppled for. his waist us be picked up full headway, but wore shaken loose. For twenty yard ho came siraMH, and then with a ilashy swervo for the lf-ft sdde of the field he caught thu Hed and lilue stalwarts scafered, and from tills point on doilRinrr. drrMng. twisting, wrlihlng without balling a s'ep the Commodoro dually w 'lip'd through tbo last opening left, and with the field clear before him, d.-nd'.i'd ever Iho line. It was done so euir-'-fy that few could realize what had happened. For ten minutes of play the vfctntors had seen Mississippi crowding rbe Commodores Into their own :rirlt.evv tbe visitors forcing the fight. And here In a "Hash from beneath tbo .-ndmv of the Commodore goal, where eleven men bad been unable io sain headway, one num. almost unaided, had flashed for .ninety yards to n touchdown by ono of llio greatest exhibitions of open field running over witnessed on Dudley Field soil. On no Icsb than throe occasions Morrison .was lost from view in tiho swirl of Hed and Hlue tucklers around blin, only to emerge with his speed undiminished and his pace unchecked. How bo ever traveled the long distance that lay beyond him remains one of tiio miracles of the game a miracle tfrnt Is only partly explained by the wonderful speed ami rtlll In dodging that lie showed ns, like :i gray ghost f'.iat might not he pranpled Willi, he led 'eleven dazed rivals over "liis own goal line for too play. that broke up the game. BATTLE A HARD ONE. Tbo flirbt proved to be one of the hardest that Commodore noil lies seen In many a dav. Misissinnl broi'frlit te bet eleven into the October snovv-lielt that tho Hed and l'.loe has ever furnished Her defense espec'ally wt.3 noteworthy for Its steadlne.-'s. while her attack was strong at times, but pot consistent. Viinderbllt hud just the Rhode that wis all. The lines fousht ail even Lieut foug'H to a fini'di. and the decision must go to a draw. In tho bnckl'lold the Commodores had the sneed, but not cnlto the power, of tho visitors, and this f:ipoi1. will) better abil'tv In covering punts, represents the margin that tbo Gold and Black showed over the Hed mid Blue. I-eave out that one run of 'orrlon. nd the final decision would more than likely have stood 3 to 2 Captain Noolcy's field coal agninst Ml''sis"lppl's safety. In ability to rush tho ball ibero wu no d'fferenco worth noting, tf'e two squads showing enunl form. It Is doubtful If either eleven would havo been able to score by rushing t.'io ball across, for the defensive strength of eaoih eleven was too strong and unvfelding for nuvthlng that either attack had to offer. When Vanderbllt fell heir to the ball In Mississippi's territory, her attack failed to cross the visitors' twonty-yard line ovcept on ono occasion, whoro lr was halted twelve yards shy of the goal. Mississippi was able to rush in inldficld. but. like bar rivals, found the way blocked and tibo entrance barred with Iho Commntlnre goal line threatened. The onlv clfuce f'r a iotiobdown was for sonic athlete to run amuck and stampede the field, ns Morrison did whon bo zigzncgpd ninety yards tVrouirh the scattered, broken clan of Hed and Blue that for ono brief moment became dismantled, ni'd pulled Itself '-together .. lust a second too late. It was the nychlcal moment of batt'e when foiv;t'brlof Interval of time tho visitors hart eased up for a renewed attack, but they picked out the wrong time when Morrison was anywhere in reaeli- intr .distance or tho ball. I'mr'scm Is one citizen that It doesn't pay to toy with. Give him an inch and bo Is liable to take nnywhero from thirty to ninety yards. VANDERBILT'S ADVANTAGE. With tbo two sets of forwards fftrlitlnir nn even fMit both working uplnn-: dull" and the sneed of Vanderhilt's backfleld about offset, by Mississippi's added rower, thevo was but ono fenturp In which C'oiniiiodoro superiority prevailed. This ws In handling the backfleld men covering punts. Not only woro the Commodore ends down under Nceloy's kicks, but on piny after play Ton- Brown or uYoplantl or Metzger. and e'lpeelally tho two former, were waiting to nnU Qiiarerback : Havton with ii crash Va moment he started up the flela. :ho had little or ro chance to start, and this alertness saved many a S-nvd, preventing any sneh backfleld rush as Morrison furnl?hed. Haxton -Viltsntayed strong caniihllilles In the way of returning K-t oval, hut It was m seldom that bo was permitted to even stirt that he bad little or no chance lo show. Even a rabbit Is an e"sv animal t" catch if you can drop on the beast while ho is sitting witl'.) no chance to break Into a sprint. The work of Tackles Brown and Freoland in-this respect was one of tho best features of ' tho afternoon's play. MISSISSIPPI'S STRONG TEAM. In eliminating Mlsiss!ni)i. Vanderbllt won' from a high-grade fomhall machine and only won by the hardest rott of plav." There wns not' a moment dnrlnc tile battle won the Commodores were able to onso "3 In their stride. They tried practically no forward ihipfps. both elevens depending malnlv utioti tho rushinc and kicking eanie. Mississippi came with a finely trained lino. 11 wonderfully stout defense and a strong, though Inconsistent, attack. Coach Stauffer bnfi built un n well-trained machine, and one. that loted Ho Commodore delegation to tho limit, t wns the best local exhibition of footbcll by many longues that the Commodores bad shown this scison, and her people ,deservo considerable credit for tfto final result. For Mississippi no longer ranks ns n second-class eleven.. She has comb to tho front, and must tako her.ploco with .the lenders of the southern game. Vandcrbilt won from n ;lilgh-grado eleven yesterday, and worked ha hardest to win as stio did. i '. : THE SCORING. . Morrison's scnln-liftnig da-h scored the first point in the opening ounr- " tor. Only three minutes of piny woro left -when Neelcy added another point with his goal after touchdown. Mississippi then kicked oft to the Comiiio- LAloros mid blocked 'any further advance up tiio field. After attempting two plays for short gains, Cnn'iiln Neoley dropped hack Tor a kick. The pass got, awny from hlni on his fifteen-yard line, and when ho attempted t regain It; hooted tho bali back acrois his own goal line, n'y a (illicit rusb ho regained ft before nnv visitors had arrived, but the .sntmy had been scored, netting the Hed and Pino their onlv two points of the day. Throuah the cecond ouarter the fight mm alp and tuck, but a fine return of. a punt bv Morrison, coupled with sharp dashes by Neeley, Kent Morrison and Willlnnir. finally bvoueht toe ball to the visitors' fifteen-yard lino without a minute lort n the first half r,r second quarter. Hero the visitors stiffened anil blocked nnv further advance: With a third down and eight-yard gain needed for tiio. distance- Canton Neelpy. dropped back to, his, twonty-two-yard lino nn; booted a perfect field, goal' directly between the bnr3 running up threo additional points closing the scoring for tho day. SECOND HALF OF CLOSE. ' x Neither eleven was nblo to threaten in the second half. Both teams came back strong.. and through the two quarters the work was well balanced, resulting lnrcoly in a punting duel after vain atlompts to gnln ground consistently. There wore spells when .Mississippi; rushed the Commodore end for good advances nnd poked her way through tho : If lie with good liower. hut . "ttho visitors? found -It Impossible to moke any great' headway once well down In Commodoro territory. On the other hand, whllovtbe Commodores Ruined at odd Intervals In lihe)rvown territory or near tnldfiehl, tho.v had no chance : to advanco the ball close enough to threaten the visiting line after Neeley had kicked his goal from field. It was a nip and tuck battle, splendidly played, well fought, and outside of -Morrison's brilliant run, too close tor comfort as far as Commodoro supporters were concerned.- It was a case all the way through where tho defonso employed by each eleven overbalanced lltio f nttack. Both elevens tackled with fine spirit and with great skill, frequently throwing runners who were apparent!" well protected by interferers.

Only Michigan and the weak Wlscontdu team now remain to eontest thu supremacy of .Minnesota in western footbiill. MlnuesoU carried tho ball iilout half the time for Mlunerimi and returned most of the punts The only j.aiv In luu recoid wns the mlsiilug of three goals from Held. Early In the game the wiar quarterback twisted through tho holp'oiw Chicago line for a LiJ-yard run and immediately foiio.vcd thin with nnothor of 2.1 ynrds. Ho had Jut completed 'anaiher dash for 25 ynrds when time was railed on the first half with tho score ti for iMlnnetiota and 0 fur Chicago. Onco when Minne ota had been penalized, 15 yards, thu Heet quarter regained it on 'an end run. Again, taking a punt on his own 2fl-yard line, aided by perfect hiterfert-nce, he ran 55 yards L-efore being tackled. Minnesota scored otico' In the half and thrco Unieii hi the second. Near H o end or the tlrst half Jlipnesota had tho plgbklu on Chicago's 2-yard line and another scoio seemed sine, but there was a fumble and Monaul, for Chicago, kicked out of danger. Again the hall was, brought within olplit yards of Iho gcal. but ..Minnesota wan 'penalized 15 vnrd4 ,and the calling of time on the half shut off further chances of retrieving lost ground, in the second half Mlnneso a again fumbled, this time on Chicago's a-ard Hue. Chicago punted, but liosen-wald, who -made the lirst "core, was quickly rushed over for uuother one. McGoveru's (J3-ynrd return of a punt figured In the third touchdown.
