Millsaps outgained the visitors, 179 to 148 in yards reeled off from scrimmage, but the Teach ers, made six first downs to five for tne Majors. , Neither team threatened seriously to score, as the Majors went to the Hubbers 20 yard line in the second period and completed a pass for a 30 yard gain to the Jacket 29 yard stripe in the final quarter. Sir Hubertmen blocked a punt and gained a few yards to put thfcn on the Purple 18 yard line In the final quarter. .. ,ctV, Otherwise the game was fought in midfield. with punters gaining when they had ttejnnd. them, losing when forced to klcK against the breeze. -Passes were frequent but completions rare, while interceptions were the rule rather than the exception. The Majors were expected to win handily, and the blame for the spilling of the dope must be evenly divided between the flatness of the Purple and the inspired play of the invaders. Fans who have followed the Teachers for the past several seasons, know they crop out with unexpected strength or Unsuspected weakness without warning, their calibre ' of football varying by a wide margin on successive weeks. . . a Blondy Boyd again featured the Jacket lineup kicking, passing and running brilliantly, while his mates especially the linemen - came through , with doggedly effective support. " ' , , . For Millsaps, Captain Fred Ward was outstanding in the line with Jack Bowen the shining light among Purple backs. - First Quarter Green returned Womack's kick-off to the Teacher 25 and then Green and Boyd smashed through for a first down to their own 36, but here the Majors stopped the running attack and Boyd punted strongly with the wind, Dase Davis being downed on his own 19. pa-vis and Anderson made a first down to their own 29. Here the Teachers were aided by a penalty In halting the Millsaps offense and Davis kicked out of bounds on the i Teacher 42, a. gain of 6 yards on the trade of kicks for the Teachers. Boyd passed on second down and Holloman intercepted a long aerial . at his own 35, running it back ten yards before being run out of bounds. Anderson and Brumfield slanted for good gains through the Jacket line and Dase Davis broke loose around end for 13 yards to the Jacket 35. An offside penalty and a good tackle by Halbert set the Majors back and Taconl intercepted Anderson's pass at his own 30 yard line. A scrapping Millsaps line and a missed signal in the Teacher backfield hurt the Jackets and Boyd kicked to Hollo-man, the Major quarter returning to midfield. Davis completed a 12 yard pass to Sneed after line plays had gained four yards and the Majors had the ball at the Teacher 34. A pair of new backs for the Majors, Felder and Bowen, failed to gain and a pass fell incomplete. Bowen kicked out of bounds on the Teacher 6 yard line, setting them back in the hole. Boyd kicked out on second down and Holloman ran it back to the Teacher 32. Anderson and Felder made nine yards in three tries to the Teacher 23 as the quarter ended. .

Anderson and Davis made a first down to the Teacher 40, but a holding penalty set the Majors back and Boyd returned Davis' punt to the 33. A roughing penalty pushed the Teachers back, but Boyd got away another kick on which Dase Davis was downed at his own 48. The Major offense was still impotent, with Davis being caught for a loss and a pass to Bridges, which hit right in Jack's " hands, dropping incomplete. Davis', kick went out of bounds at the Teacher 37, and the Jackets took their turn at trying ineffectually to gain., A punt slipped off Boyd's foot and went out of bounds weakly at the Teacher 47. Just before the half ended, Evans intercepted a pass from Holloman at the Jacket 47 and ran it back to the Purple 48. Boyd and his mates could neither complete a pass nor make a running gain and kicked, Dase Davis being downed at his own 27. The teams traded punts with little to choose and on the last play of the half Boyd intentionally grounded a pass but the Purple waived the penalty, which prevented another play being run. Third Quarter Evans fumbled the kickoff and was downed at his own 19. Boyd punted out and the ball rolled out of bounds at the Jacket 48. Williamson blocked Buie's punt and covered for the Teachers at the Millsaps 47. After three ineffectual pljys, Boyd kicked out of bounds to Davis on the Millsaps 10.

Boyd plunged thru holes in the Millsaps line for two first down in succession, breaking into the secondary and ploughing on to the Major 36. Here a fast charging Major line hurled him back and Jordan's kick went out of bounds on the Major 23. On the next play Davis was hard hit and had to be carried' from the field. His substitute, Bowen, arched a long spiral punt over Boyd's head, and the Teacher quarterback was downed at his own 29.

Three plays barely missed making first down and Bowen kicked to the Teacher 21. Bowen nailed Boyd for a 10 yard loss on an attempted end sweep and Jordan's punt was run out of bounds by Holloman at the Millsaps 39. Here the Majors took up the offensive burden, but the Purple attack again failed and Bowen punted over the , goal. Boyd quick-kicked with the wind over Holloman's head and the Major safety man was downed on his own 27. Bowen kicked back and Boyd was downed on his own 45, a gain of 25 yards on. the trade for the Pedagogues. Boyd's long toss .intended for Halbert, was intercepted by Holloman at his own 25 and run back to the Millsaps 42.
