Tlio dav was ioudy mid warm. The clouds which threatened rain yesterday iiIhmiI mum brolj-and left the sky ck-ur ami bright fur tho game. ( Cody Sllll Auburn Nemesis. Big JobIi 'od.v. for years I ho Auburn Nemesis, again loomed iiu to keep the Alabama warriors from winning. When lie recovered u blocked punt hi tin- second period mid ambled across t lit- goal lino with the rod-beaded Howard hanging tn his , kuees, the game wan won. it locking punt nt Auburn bus long been a pastime with Mr. Cody and lie seems t stand between I he in uad victory every tune (hoy flush with Mcliugln's men. lint Tommy Zerfoss crabs off att eoiiyl share of the limelight in this soul-stirrlug play which will be the subject of discus slon tit Vanderbilt reunions fur time Itn-iiieinorahle. This 1-U-pound end entered the gaino. "under the weather" and retired lifter tlio flrat half a sick man. Bui ho had Hine to sneak through anil meet the pigskin ub it was leaving Howard's educated tue. The lmpiet of Tommy's body sent the ball bounding back for flftoti viit-iln urn! Vauderbilt and Auburn raced to retrieve ir. i.ody galloped across ((iff field mid snatched it mi the bo nine from the flugcrs of Howard ami set wall for a touchdown. As he erosBed the Hue Howard snagged hlni wllh kiicJi vim that he had io be carried from the field. H ll pi ek Come. To Aid. This was the first hi thrill from Vim. derhllt'a standpoint. When Auburn came back with a powerful attack and burked the ball over for o touchdown In the name period the thrill was all on the other Mae. However, then1 was re jo Icing when reie nomier, who nail neon rougiilv Windier, failed to klek the goal, giving th. Commodores a slender lead -of one nolnl Auburn came back Mke a whirlwind in the final period and kept hnminerlng within striking, distance of the Commodore goal line. Three Union Howard attempted a goal from placement. Three timet the ball went low and Vamlcrblit supporters chukiii ineir orewui. e Still clinging; to their load, the Com modorea olavod a defenalve came, denend tag most at the while on the toe of .Frank oHr, wno eame onto me neui in iiih eiti-zen clothes an a result of a apell if lck-nesa. Ille fever was tO'l Friday, but he played like n world boater Katurdny. Time ami again his long, twisting puma drove the Auburnites hack from Vnndy'a goal. In addition he played a wonderful defensive game. In the last few minutes An hum hod the ball within Vandy's ten-yard line on a first down. At thlti juncture the glgan-i tic form of Tom Lipscomb, hobbling on his Injured ankle, unpen red on the Held. His nfesence added thn necessary Ktretmlh tn the line and bhvp courage to the oiher nnnmcn. Aunurn waves neai ukuiiibi a stone wall and when the ball wns fumbled and Top Richardson nestled It to his breast as a mother does a babe, tho vls-"Itlng erew was beaten, tloar punted it out nrtd It was never brought bark. The whls- ' tie blew too sooo. When Howard's toe drove the hall far Into the Vandy territory on the kick-off, the hardest name played on Dudley Field In many a day was begun, A fumble by ncrryhlll on the first play gave Auhurn the hall on Vnndy'a 16-yard line. For a while it seemed that Auburn would push icross the line for n touchdown, but Hubert Wiggs saved tho day when he fell on the ball as It rolled out of an Auburn back s hands over the Vandy goal Hue. The ball was put in plnv on Vandy's L'O-yard line and Zerfosp puuferi the ball up the field out of danger. Purtng the remainder of the first (pmrter (he hall was iu Auburn's possession the majority of the time. From th start tho Commodores iilayfd n defensive game, puutlng upon first or second' downs. Fireworks Start. Tlio ball was put in piny on AuIwtij h r-.-viird line with the Plainsmen In possession at tho beginning of the second period. When Howard attempted to punt early in tho ODorier, Zerfoss broke through and blocked the kick. Cody who was lingering near picked up the ball and ran 15 yards for a touchdown, lio also kicked goal, giving tb Commodores a 7-polnt lead. At the time things looked Tcry bright for the Vandy bunch.' Before tbe half was over things took on n different appearance. Kcott, Auburn's peppery little half, got his handa on out of Zerfoss' M-yard pants and r:icod up the field for a i!.Vyard return. (Williamson and Shlrllng then began a hammering nttaek on tho Commodore Hue which brought the balJ f 1 yard of Vandy's gooL After two trials Whirling carried the ball over for o touchdowu. Pete Jtouner missed goul. making the score 7 to u iu favor of Vnndy. , Tho second half was one of the hardest gridiron battles ever staged on Dudley Field. Tbe Commodores continued on the defensive game which they began In Die tirst half. With fresh men tn tbe bark-held, Auburn trained with consistency on the McCugln machine. Williamson and Srott were wonders on the offensive. Scott pu'Ied n pretty broken field run after imother for from 10 to -." yards. He also made severnl beautiful returns or Vamly's punts. Williamson, who relieved Howard In the second ijnnrter, wjs Auburn's most brilliant itsr. His off tackle plays generally resulted Iu modest gains for the HuHistuen. VsAdy Defense Wonderful. Time after time the Vandy goal line as threatened, but on each occasion fate stepped In and saved the day. lint the Lord helps- hint who helps himself. Aud it may he said in this counectlou that the Commodores were certainly there when It r'anu to helping themselves. Whenever the Auburn backs threatened to score, the Commodore line would stiffen nnd bold. Some of the prettiest defensive work Imaginable, was contributed by Cody and the other Vandy lluesnwn. Three times Howard dropped buck for n pIsceuK-nt klek Iu the last half, hoping thereby to turn the tide In favor of the Plaiuswen. All these kicks went wide, however. Twlee Auburn' caMied tbe boll within the shadow of the Vanderbllt goal. On both occasions they were held fur small gains. Shlrllng fum-1 !ei the ball en one occasion wbeu be was within f yards of the goal. Itfcburdsou recovered for Vnndy nnd Goar punted out of danger. , , Speaking from a nonpartisan standpoint, the I'mlmwen deserved toe game. Their offensive swept the Commodore defeuse aside time after time and threatened to turn the tables. Had It not beer for tbe Mctiugin line which baa ' been declared worthless by the wise ones if), the score would have been much different. The underbill bunch showed a great Improvement over the work iu the Tech game. Tiie defense was much stronger and the olTetisii hart Improved slightly. They are .ill vv oe I'll My weak at this point. Kerry-i lb ami Latham, got away several Ulnes for pretty gains, but were uot steady. Hurry hill uiad tome good returns of Howard's and Ol linger' punts. Wlggs also, showed, up to an ml vantage, plugging Hie line for moderate gains throughout the funie- fl"i'l made one or two guluw, but his real value lies In the nhUHv "lied" has te keep tlio Icjuu together. " He has a inlzlity Bood football brad under that red hair. AIT Adams played a wonderful game as lone an was In It. Ho not a few knocks In Uio Mvond .jnarter whtch handicapped him considerably hi tlio last part of the half Ho Mas in there, however, fighting awny nil the time. Zerfoss was on the other end keeping pace- with Air. H0 was hi every play. Ii was Zerfoss who blocked (lie punt ami allowed Josh to stoic. He aKo made some spectacular tackles during the game. Toward the Inst of. the gauie he was relieved by tloar, who litis been flufr.Jhig from toitaf litis. His playing wiHim-d no liud eHects or IiIh Illness, as In' was there as usual booting the. bull for mi average of about to yards and (nil-nig ineui as wen. It was tile footwork-el' Coar ami Zerfoss that prevented An-burn from scoring during the last half. Vandy punted on the first down whenever she not her hands on the ball. The work f the Auhurn line must also be mentioned as It was there almost as st roiig as the Commodore forwards. Pete llouiier was a wonder at tackle, figuring in every way. Two Auburn heavyweights were also there with the good. Pesplte their weight Warren and Sineuiore were insr. ami aggressive. The line-up of the teams and the summary follow : Vundrrbllt (1) Position.

Vanderbllt's indomitable lighting splril. coupled with the keen cunning or the gi gantlc Josh Cody and diminutive Tommy Zerfoss, has again triumphed over ihc Auburn plainsmen. Hat Mel! ugln's men can claim no more of the glory than ( he heroic AlattamianN. who fought like tin- Tigers" they are from start to iluish and all but snatchml away that slim 'one -point margin in tbe bum Plainsmen. "They are the gamcst bunch, of players 1 ever met," said tho veteran Alf Adams as lie Minpcd 'off the field. "You've got to huiid it to them. They plnv real foot-bail anil they play it clean. It would be no dlsgrare to have been beaten by a ienui of that callher." Alf voiced the sentiments of the entire Commodore eleven. Nothing but praise for the lighting spirit of the Plainsmen was heard among the players as they steamed under the showers in the gymnasium. These arc not idle compliments. They cone from the heart Imchusc of the wonderful uphill light staged !)' the Orange and lthic. Auburn Outplays Vandy.

"Tech can hoot Vnnderhilt fumet!iuej." remarked a sobered Auburn tun Inn fl;e can't beat Vandcrliili. Josh Cody and Fate." He might have added to this a lighting spirit that ban never been surpassed and he would hav,. hit the mark. Auburn's offensive strength outclassed that of Vamlerbllt to such a degree that one wonders bow the 7 to (1 margin could have ttccn maintained. In advancing the lull from ficrfmtmigo Hotiuhue's men guined nearly four tunes as much ground aa their conquerors. Their total distance was 28 yards, as compared tu 5'.i for Van-derhiit. Auburn skirted the ends for 150 yards and hit the Hue for eight vards more than figure. Vmid.'s total distance gained around the, Auhutn ends was onlv 30 yards, while In the itne the (ioid and Ilincli plungers registered hut 20. Vatiderbilt registered but 1 hrre first downs, one of which came in the first Keriod and two lu the second. In the last alf the visitors gained only 2 yards. Out of four efforts to udvnnce the ball In tbe last half, 2 yards were made on an end run. another attempt failed to gain, and S and 1 yards, respectively, were lost the other times. Auburn gained the required distance 17 times, all except on one play being by old-fashioned line bucks r etui runs. Their ningJe successful forward pass was good for 'Si yards. Four of Auburn's first downs came In the first period, two tn the second, live lu the third nnd six lu the Jast, Their attack seemed to grow Btronger as the game progressed. It has been often said that Conch Donahue pars little Jtttcufiop to the forward Cos. But tbe work of his team yesterday eltirt the statement. Where once Vamlerbllt used to make the AubunilteH groggy wjth their aerial stunts, the tables were now reversed. The visitors tried no le-sn than teu passes, only oik- of which was successful. Hut it was good for 25 yards, and came near result lug in a touchdown, Vuuderbllt tried the imss twice and It was iniNMcreseful both times, though on the Inst one Alf Adams ma standing lu the clear oe ii 1 11 1 1 1 n j uiMiru jjoul line. An inac- urate pavS kept him frum registering au-idlier touchduwn. For the lirst time tiiln year ViinderMIt p 11 tilers have been out booted bv opposing loe artists. Zerfus-.. Nelll and t;()ar kicked 17 times for a total of 000 yards. Their coiiiblned average was but 30 yards, due largely to a re.oril-lneaking kick of minus one yard, whii h erloss was responsible for in the second period. He glanced the ball and it ivciit out ol' bounds one yard behind the line of scrimmage. Goal's general average ou his seven kicks was 41 yards. Howard and OHlnger, Auburn's hooters, a vciagcd 4:1 ya rds on t hel r nt ne kicks. Their total distance was 3S7 yards. In returning punts. Vnnderhilt had the edge with a ilistam-e of 105 yards, us compared to !Hf for their opponents. The longest return of the day was when Berry -hill sped for 35 yards lief ore he was don ned. Later In the same period he Trough t buck a kick ,'IP yards. Scott brought one back for 17 yards and another for :i0 during the a fief noon's t-nlertulu- HH'llt. rtfiiildes were frwjpent, both sides f-f ceding often. In the last period especially Scot I mishandled about five of Uonr's punts, but recovered them ail. Berryhill's fumble tiy fame started put Vauder-IilH hi danger :nil it was only Latham's kecness in falling on an Auburn fumble behind the Vanderbilt goal line a few minutes later that saved a touchdown, But the world's champion recovery was that of Top Ulchardson In the lat-t few minutes of piny, when Auburn hud 1 lie ball In Vnndirbilt's five-yard line. When Top sine) led that one out he proved himself to be the greatest little leather hound In captivity. Longest Kim by Scott. The longest single ground gaining stunt of the day Is credited to tho elusive little Scott, safety man for Auburn. When the third period opened he grabbed In Cody's kirk -off 011 his own live-yard line and raced back 40 yards I w fore lie wns downed by Berryblll. Kxcepl for the Vnnderbllt quarter, he had gotten clear and It looked mighty like n 05-yard run for a touchdown. The game was particularly free from penalties. Vanderbilt was penalized twice, once for 15 yards for holding and again five yards, presumably fr off-side In the last period. The last penalty nearly spilled the beans, however, for the ball was on Vanderbllt's 10-ynrd line, as a result of one of those famous Auburn offensives. When nu additional five yards was given Auburn the crowd groaned, hut the crlp-rtled Tom Lipscomb, Cody und others held like a stone wall, Auburn's clean game Is demonstrated by the fact that the only penalties she received were for taking time out more than the law u1Ioh3. Neither team was guilty of rough stuff, though they fought desperately. After all the dope has been simmered down, tbe fact stands out more prominently t hii ever that Auburn possesses bei full share of glory in spite of her defeat. They're as game and dean a tuition of fighters us ever appeared on Dudley Field. Mav they beat Tech ou "Turkey Day." 1 Alligators' Defense Crumples in H Third Quarter. TAMPA, rta..
