Vanderbilt Defeats Georgia 1 7 to 0; Princeton Beats Harvard 8 to 6 ft r MK r s BUT IS BEATEN Vanderbilt Wins Hard Fray by Score of Seventeen to Nothing. HARDAGE INJURED McWhorter Was Star Player for Georgia Sikes and Morrison for Locals. BY SPICK HALL. Under a cold, leaden, sky with occasional splashes of rain. Vanderbilt added Georgia to nor long list of victims yesterday afternoon on Dudley Held, defeating the Crackers by the medium count of 17 to 0. That score represents about as nearly as can be obtained the fighting strength of the two teams as they battled yesterday. Vfhat the score would have been if Freeland had been in the game and Hardugo had not been knocked outjn the second quarter is merely a mat-tor of speculation. While thero is no doubt that Freeland and ; Hardnge playing all the game would have made somo difference, Joe Covington, who took Frceland's place at left tackle for Vanderbilt, put up ah excellent article of ball. Tben tbo fact must also bo considered that several of tho Georgia -men were not in the best physical condition, wiiilo 'Woodruff did not get into the game at all. On tno whole, tho. result of the game was about what the majority predicted, and was just about tho score which Vanderbilt deserved to beat the Cracker men. - At no time during the game did Georgia have a good cnance to make a touchdown, although they were clofto onough several times for a successful kick to have been made if they had the man to do it; but they did not, so tiiey lost tlielr opportunity to score1 by this failure to a have a placement or drop kicker In the game. Georgia put up a splendid article of ball on the defense,, forcing Vanderbilt to punt time after, time. Then, too, on tho offenBe, the Goorgic array showed the effects of excellent coaching plus a lot of good individual work on the part of McWhorter. Sanckor. and Malone. Of: this trio, by far the most brilliant and consls-lent performer was McWhorter. He more than lived the reputation which preceded him 10 Dudley field.

At receiving forward passes McWhorter is again in hlB element, and despite the powerful defense of the Commodores, he took the passes eev-eral times for long gains. In fact, forward passing was tho best thing Georgia did on tho offense. Although McWhorter made neat gains ' over tackle and occasionally Malone would get away through the line and Sanck-en around the end. the Georgians could not make their yards with enough consistency to get them anywhere. Even with the forward passes working as well as they were, Georgia was unable to get within real striking" distance of Vanderbilt's goal: STRAIGHT FOOTBALL. " ; : ' Only:threo times during. the game did Vanderbilt try forward passing, and two of 'those tailed. the: third' one to Collin's netted the Commodores about . eight, yards: only.'. 'McGugin's men contented themselves, with using straight ' plays,' around -the' ends and over tackle,- and plunges through the line o:.' straight' and 'split plays. Sikes played great at. fullback, making Bev-erai: runs of approximately 36- yards each, then a number of . shorter-ones when they- were 'badly- - needed. Furthermore.Slkes carried the ball over tho goal lino for one of tbe three touohdowns.' On the defense Sikes was a' ram. Roaring Ami, .McGiiglii's pet name, for his fullbaol;. sajled Into the Georgia offense without fear or favor. ' When; he 'bit a- man," it was. "good-night" for that trip." Just in parenthesis it.might be casually observed ' that Vanderbilt's couple of touchdowns which' were not allowed. The first one was a corking sprint by Ray Morrison for 90 yards through the entire Georgia team for a touchdown, but it was not allowed for some foul committed by a Vanderbilt player during the Play. On another occasion Ray ..ran foi about flften yards for a toucBdown. but the referee claimed that time was up before tho play began. ' THE PUNTING. Georgia's punting on the average was miserable. Powell-punted semi-occasionally for 35 yards, but many of his -kicks ranged from 10 to 20 yards, and he had the hablt-of kicking out of bounds at close range., instead of sending the ball way off to the 'side. Ray Morrison did the kicking for Vanderbilt, "and did well. His kicks averaged over '35 yards, and he got one for fifty and another .for fifty-five yards; in returning, punts, too. Vanderbilt had Georgia badly: outclassed. Sancken never made more ' than five or six yardc on any return, for Vanderbilt's ends and tackles were right down on him, either throwing him in his tracks .or pushing him back for Ready -Made Clothing "That will make a man forget there is such a thing as a custom tailor shop."

On the other hand, Ray; Mor - rl'aon. who did most of the punt re- turning, made some seat gains; and his 90 yard run which was disallowed resulted from a returned punt. Rob-bins, who played in the. back field with Morrison arter Hcrdago had be., taken out,, ran bnik PiiiiU well. Louis' Hardago. who is considered by nearly every one as one of tho greatest halfbacks that over played in tho south, was severely Injured near the close of the 'second quarter yesterday. A Georgia map fell on Hardage's arm while it wi-: outstretched. Drs. Owsley Man'er and Luke Burch attended Hardago immediately, and although they did .' not .make a thorough examination at' thi lime,, the injury is thought to bt a severe one, with, several of -the shoulder ligaments badly torn. : Whether Hardage will be able to plav again this season has not yet been ascertained by the physicians. THOSE TOUCHDOWNS. . Vanderbilt drifted leisurely ,-n the field at 2 25 o'clock, and Georgia arrived about ten . minutes lac sr. the Vanderbilt players in tho meantime warming up by.
