TAMPA SUNDAY TRIBUNE- PART 2 PART 2 SPORTS WANT-ADS, MARKETS TAMPA, FLORIDA, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1931 ffQfmrvn rrn o) Plant High Battles Miami Eleven To PANTHERS MISS 2 CHANCES TO SCORE IN 4TH Doug Hance's Punting Keeps Foes on Defence MIAMI, Oct. 24. (Special.) A Ctingaree team that refused to be beaten after throwing ,away its own chances to score, gave Miami football fana one of the most thrilling afternoons they've known for a long time today against Plant high, of Tampa. Two great nigh school teams ! fought through 48 J minutes of desper- ate football at ) Stingaree field and i neither would allow a rival to cross the pnal line. Miami, FLEMING outDlaving P la n t through the first half, had two golden opportunities and couldn't click when the boys needed those last few precious yards. Plant, in the fourth quarter, twice ViinffcPrt Smathers' mints and recov ered on Miami's 10-yard line. But in. eight shots at the Miami line, they couldn't gain a yard. writ Hnwn the name of Gene Chivers as the bright hero of that Miami defense. Three times m succession, Gene' nailed Plant ball car-v.oV,(nH trip line of scrimmage. He fought like the players of the good old days, seemingly sensing wneie u plays were going and hitting the Plant boys with all his power. Hance's Punting Great Thev'll talk a long time around here of several features of this game, daspite the fact neither team scored. TV, ir wpre those beautiful punts zooming 50 yards down the field from the toe of D. Hancevriani rvrr r.harlie Fleming of Plant, time after time smothered the Stingaree defense and stopped Leven and Smathers for short gains. Walter Busk, Miami right tackle, also played beautifully. Nor will Miami fans ever forget those two ' blocked punts that spoiled their afternoon. Most of the third quarter the Stingarees were - on defense, due hicfiv tn Hance's brilliant punting, and aided by the wind. Plant couldn't gain an inch through Miami's line. In fact, the Tampa boys didn't make a first down all afternoon. There was a touchdown which almost scored in this third quarter. It was a pass, on which Coach Major had been working all week. Moore, standing on his own 45-yard line, dropped back swiftly, tossed a pass to Plasman on the line of scrimmage. Dick, .in turn tossed it to George Smathers and long George hauled freight toward the east goal. Far down in the northeast corner of the field, five yards from a touchdown, Doug Hance pulled big George to earth. Play Called Back And then the referee called the play back. He ruled that Moore, in his haste to get the play off, had stepped only four yards from the line of scrimmage, instead of the five yards required, and the play wasn't legal. That play, called back, seemed to break the spirit of the Stingarees and they waited until the fourth quarter, when they got the wind with them, to start another offensive. A 55-yard punt from Hance's toe, which took a right angle pop and rolled out of bounds on the four-yard line, gave Plant a great chance. As the fourth quarter started Miami lined up to punt out. Smathers, standing behind his own goal line, was smothered by Bob Gilliam, left tackle, ' and Gay, right end. The punt was (Continued on Page 3 Part 2) Syracuse Achieves 5-Year Ambition by Beating Penn State SYRACUSE, N. Y., Oct. 24. (A.P.V Syracuse university achieved a five-year ambition today by beating Penn State 7-0. Syracuse, . unbeaten, untied and practically untested this season, entered the game a pronounced favorite over Penn State which already had bowed to two small-college foes, Waynesburg and Dickinson, as well as to Temple. But Syracuse was hard pressed to win. The only score of the game came in the first period when Moran carried the ball over on a line buck as the culmination of a steady march down the field in which he had done most of the ball carrying. Ellert added the point. Syracuse threatened several times after that but never again could summon up the strength to pftsh the ball- over. Penn State twice marched down the field to within striking distance of the Orange goal. Play throughout was ragged. Both tams tried aerials repeatedly but few ef them were successful. Penalties were frequent. ''.'6 His Punts Save Panthers FOOTBALL SOITH fleorKia, 9; Tanilerbllt, O. Tennessee. ; North Carolina. 0. Washington and, 18: Virginia. 0.

CATFISH SMITH LEADS GEORGIA TO 9 TO 0 WIN Great Bulldog End Wrecks Vandy Team ATHENS, Ga., Oct. 24. (Associated Press.) Vernon Smith's spectacular leap above a swarm of Vanderbilt players to catch Austie Downes' pass over the goal line today gave Georgia a 9 to 0 victory over the Commodores and broke up a closely fought battle. The great Georgia end appeared from nowhere late in the third period as Quarterback Downes tried a fourth down pass from the eight-yard line and out jumped a handful of Vanderbilt players guarding the goal line. It was the same Smith who kicked the extra point and who in the second period was responsible for Georgia's safety as he rushed Quarterback Henderson and forced him to step out of the end zone. On another occasion Smith broke up one of Van-derbilt's few rallies by intercepting a pass from Henderson deep in Georgia territory. Vandy Threatens Twice Twice in the first period Vanderbilt threatened after long returns of kicks by Henderson, the chunky Commodore quarterback whose brilliant runs, quick kicks and daring .passes kept the Commodores dangerous throughout. Henderson ran one of Georgia's kicks back 40 yards to Georgia's 25-yard line, but here Batchelor, Georgia's center, snagged a pass meant for Foster. A few minutes later Henderson again twisted his way back to Georgia's 23-yard stripe but here Fortune fumbled and While recovered for Georgia. A series of penalties spoiled Georgia's first rally in the second period after Roberts, substitute for Whire, flashed off 40 yards in three tries. Late in the period, Georgia again started to advance with Roberts doing most of the ball carrying from their own 36-yard line which ended on the one-yard line when Roberts caught and then fumbled a pass from Downes. VancYrbilt recoved but Henderson attempted a pass from be hind the goal line and stepped out of the end zone as Smith rushed him giving Georgia its safety and two points. Johnson Races 55 Yards Johnson ran back the kick-off m the third period 55 yards to Georgia's 35-yard line, but Henderson called a daring, pass on the second down and Roberts intercepted for Georgia. Later Downes took Henderson's punt on his 35-yard line and ran for 57 yards to Vandy's eight-yard marker. Three (Continued on Page 2 Part 2) t Northwestern Runs Ohio State Out of Title Picture, 10-0 COLUMBUS, Oct. 24. (A.P.) Pue Rentner and Ollie Olson, two young giants from Northwestern university parsed and ran Ohio State out of the western conference championship pic ture this afternoon before 41,500 per sons. The Wildcats clawed their way to a 10 to 0 victory. Beside carrying the brunt of the Purple offensive attack, Rentner and Olson accounted for the 10 points, the former dashing 49 yards for a touchdown half way in the third period and the blond Norwegian sending a beautiful drop-kick through the crossbars from the 34-yard line just as the last period started. Northwestern successfully bottled up Ohio's fleet backs, Cramer and Carroll, to such an extent that the Buckeyes never seriously threatened to score, advancing the ball within the 20-yard line only once. Ohio's line which withstood the test last week at Michigan was found wanting today, the Purple making -13 first downs and gaining 371 yards from scrimmage. The vaunted forward wall of Northwestern, led by Captain Dal Marvil and Jack Riley, held the Ohio backs to seven first downs and only 140 yards from scrimmage. Indiana Scores First Win Over Chicago in 21 Years CHICAGO, Oct. 24 (A P.) Indiana's Hoosiers today satisfied a 21 -year-old thirst for a victory over Chicago, drinking deep of a 32 to 6 triumph on Stagg field before 10,000 spectators. After a scoreless first period in which the Marrons began to sag. and with the exception of a few moments in the third period, Indiana conducted the game about as it pleased. The small Maroon souad rrarked in .the second session when Indiana scored twice and collapsr-ci completely under the weight of Hoosier reserves in the final quarter, when Indiana added another 19 points. AFTER NSrV J Well, sir, sports columists have the reputation as the grouchiest of human beings, and can you blame 'em, the poor sapheads? Here we've spent a solid week in the morgue, wiping the dust off old newspaper files, just to pet and pamper a trio of curious football fans. And you should have heard Zinn, the janitor, cuss and snort and snort and cuss as he pulled down and put up those portfolios of the past. Anyway, J. H.

(Associated Press.) Richard B. Sheri dan, of Augusta, Ga., regular right end of the Army team playing in the game with Yale this afternoon, received a broken neck in a tackle play. Tonight his condition was reported at New Haven hospital as extremely critical. Sheridan was taken from the play field on a stretcher and immediately removed to New Haven hospital, where surgeons, most of them Yale men, took the case. . ' The player was placed on the operating table and a moment later it was definitely stated that Sheridan's injury was a broken neck. Coupled with this, was the statement that the patient's condition was low and extremely critical. Injured on Tackle Play Sheridan received his injury in a tackle play after the kickoff which followed Yale's tying of the score at six all early in the fourth period. He had come up behind Lassiter, of Yale, who received the kickoff. It was described as a close play in which spectators could not definitely determine what, had happened. Sheridan was a 1933 man at West Point academy, 21 years of age, weighed 149 pounds, was five feet, 10 inches in height and had attended Augusta junior college before his appointment to the academy. John M. Cates, director of athletics at Yale university said that Yale men deeply regret the injury to Sheridan. "It was an accident made in a tackle play," he saiV, "and an acci dent as may come in any game. It marred a very finely played game There is not much Yale can say at this time. We hope that it will not result in Sheridan's death. He was very badly hurt but we all hope for the best."

First FLORIDA LINE BRILLIANT IN CLOSE TRIUMPH 15,000 See Spectacular Aerial Battle FAIRFIELD STADIUM. JACK SONVILLE, Oct. 24. (Associated Press.) The Gators from the University of Florida showed unexrjected strength to halt the comeback trail of Auburn s Tigers here today in a game packed with excitement from the start. Florida won by a single point, 13 to 12. Fifteen thousand madlv cheerine fans saw the boys from the Plains use every trick scheme and device of the game to put over the winnintr touchdown in the closing minutes of play. But that sophomore line from Gainesville held when it meant the margin of victory or defeat. Both sides played the air for the most spectacular gains and all four touchdowns resulted either directly or indirectly from this open form of battle. Auburn started the game with a rush and marked up two first downs in succession before the Gators got into real action. Then Coach Charlie Bachman's first line of defense settled down to holding. It seemed to take some of the wind out of the Tiger rush when Parnell, Gator end, smashed through and smeared an attempted pass, throwing Phipps for a heavy loss. Gators Outrush Tigers The first, period rocked along until the closing minutes with Florida out-rushing and outgaining the Tigers. Hughes, Florida starting fullback, took the ball on Auburn' 16-yard line and rammed his way to the two-yard marker before being ' downed. Rogero got a yard , and Hughes was called upon for the task of taking it over for the first touchdown. Rogero's attempt for the extra point from placement was low. The boys from Alabama Poly were far from licked, however, for they came right back in the second period to start a scoring march after Hughes fumbled expensively deep in his own territory. A heavy penalty failed to halt the Tigers and again they crashed and passed to the Florida two-yard line. It was at this point that the Florida line showed its mettle and held the Plainsmen for downs. But after Florida had punted the ball back to the midsection of the field, Hitchcock heaved a long lateral to Are.ail for a 41 -yard net gain and a score. Hitch cock's place-kick went wide and the score was tied, 6-6. Third Period Exciting The third period was frousht with exciting aerials and punts, with neither having any appreciable advantage. One of the neatest plays of the gamewas executed when Saey, almost smothered by what looked like about all the Auburn team, slipped an arm overhead and spiralled a pass into the krms of Davis, sub halfback, who caught it on his knees on Auburn's eight-yard stripe. The Gators worked the ovel to the three-yard line and Phiel dropped back to try for a field goal to break the deadlock. But hfe missed and the tense moment was over. The last quarter had hardly started when Florida got the ball deep in Auburn territory on a fumble. Then Davis shot a long, ' floating pass 28 yards to Emmelhainz, sub halfback, who galloped unmolested the remaining 40 yards for a touchdown. Hughes sent his place-kick squarely between the goal posts for what proved to be the winning point. Fumbles Costly to Florida Costly fumbles came near to' proving the undoing for the Gators toward the end of the game. An intercepted pass stopped one Tiger rally but they fought their way back after recovering one of Litherland's fumbles. Will Rogers, driving halfback, stomped out a first down in two plays and laid the ball on Florida's nine-yard marker. Then Hitchcock saw one of those fare openings in the Gator line and dashed straight through it for a touchdown. But he failed to kick the goal for the extra point. Auburn threatened again in the last minutes but Rogero intercepted a pass, and aided by a roughing penalty brought the ball back from the shadow of his (Continued on Page 2 Part 2) down and 10 to go.
