They didn't make a single aer-; trround offense went so well ihni jous mistake and they played conservatively almost all the way. They intercepied five Longhorn passes and took the ball from the Texans once on a fumble. In another sense, the game emphasized the change from Boivdeu Wyatt's single wing to the pigeon- toed split T of Jack Mitchell. The they passed only three tunes. Two Great Fullbacks Henry Moore and Gerald Nesbitl, the two Arkansas fullbacks, carried the offense. Moore ran for 115 yards and established a new all- time hifih for Arkansas ground gainers. He now has more than 1.500 yards in 2 : -_> seasons. Nesbiti Razorbacks ran up more than 3001 picked up 79 yards. yards on the ground and the ^-^ '"" r]n « Jf?

Halfback Preston Carpenter set j up ihe lirst, Arkansas score with] a 40-yard run that pin the ball on! the 5-yard line. Quarterba ckj George Walker sneaked the last ; yard. The Hogs drove 80 yards for their second touchdown with Quarterback Don Christian traveling" the last few inches.

Fullback Delano Womack .scored first for Tex a.s and Brewer's passes accounted for the last two touchdowns. An interception by Christian hailed one late Longhorn rally and sophomore center Jay Dona than grabbed another Texas aerial on the play of the game. Mitchell rated the Porkers' pass defense the most, improved part of their game. He also was pleased with the Arkansas line play. It was the first major victory for Arkansas and the fourth loss in five games for Texas. Grid Pickers Take Lumps From Upsets Snider, Roberts, Kaline, Ford Cop Baseball Honors ST.
