The score was 19 to 0. It was a stubborn resistant battle I hiit Georgia fought this, afternoon. But that forward wall of Alabama's was impregnable to all the red-jersied tj'eorsians. save one. That was Me-t'rary, the mad bull they called him last year when he ripped through the line of all Georgia's opponents with force and abandon. This year Me-t'rarv had flashed occasionally, but his play was nothing like last year's, probably because he hasn't any too .-trong a line in front of him.

It was Campbell who s--ored the Tide's first two touchdowns. And when it wasn't Campbell who was advancing the ball, then it was usually that powerful piece of football machinery, "Mad Anthony" Holm. Holm, should anyone ever ask you, is a football player. It was he and Campbell who spelled that 19-0 defeat of Georgia this afternoon. On offense Georgia could do little. Tide lineman broke through and spilled play before they w-ere well underway. " They tackled hard and they :!;led fast.' As we said lwfore, McCrary was the only man who could got through. Other times Alabama's linemen carried Georgia forwards completely out of the way and had the G'-orgia back nailed usually before he was even started. First Half Even Battle.

Another time Hill passed to Red Smith, who fell just as he caught the ball. Had he kept his feet and caught it. ta touchdown would have followed.

T)IRM1NGHAM, ALA., November 29. Just one year ago today a lot of Tech folks were sitting' in beautiful Legion field watching the Bulldog of Georgia gnaw the trousers off the Crimson Tide of Alabama. That same day they were listening to the Tech-Auburn score over the radio from Atlanta it was 19-0 if memory serves and they were wondering what would happen the next week when this Bulldog went after the Yellow Jackets. There were a few dissenting voices that day but most of them thought the Bulldog would bite the Yellow Jacket severely if not promiscuously. That Tech-Georgia game, is history, blinding, red-letter history in the Georgia book of sports. Now comes another year. Today the Bulldog was easy prey for the Tide. The same Tide that fell before the Tornado just two weeks ago by a score of 33-13, laid their red and white over the red and black of Georgia like a dollar over a dime. But wait. Remember last year? Georgia looked far superior to Tech then and you know what happened without being- reminded. Tech looks far superior to Georgia this year. What will happen on December 8? Tech should win and should win handily but oh well, let it go. About this game today. Picking a few high spots from what proved to be a very interesting though rather lustiless game is. , rather difficult, but your correspondent came to Birmingham for the express purpose of trying to make a comparison between Georgia and Georgia Tech, based on their comparative showing against the Tide and here goes. A few definite conclusions may be drawn with the understanding that all conclusions are predicated upon the proposition that the Tide of today was the same Tide that met Tech. Such a predication is often erroneous but some standard must be accepted. For the first declaration let us remark that the forward wall of the Georgia team today showed nothing like the strength of the Tornado line. While Alabama played the Tech line to m standstill for two quarters, the Georgia line showed only spots of brilliancy on offense and on defense held firmly only under its own goal and that only in the early periods. The spotty ofiense offered by Georgia today may be taken two ways. The Bulldog was plainly not on top for this game. The fact that the Tide was outrushing the Bulldog forward wall hurt the Georgia offense but many times poor timing was more to blame for Georgia losses than faulty line work. Georgia's punting was not by any means excellent. The average was just a bit over 30 yards. Tech should more than match , this performance. Georgia made seven first downs against 22 for the Tide. The breaks in the game were about even so no stress may be laid on this point. One dire weakness exhibited by Georgia today may have a large bearing on the game in Atlanta next week. The Bulldogs tried 13 passes and completed one of them for a net game of 15 yards. Most of this due, not so much to lack of passers or receivers as to the fact that Alabama's linemen were rushing the passer to death every time he tried a heave. This same thing is quite likely to .happen next week. And Georgia is almost certain to be forced into a passing game against Tech's admittedly superior line. With a line outrushing the opposition, Georgia has at least one baekfield that ranks very nearly with any Tech can put in the field. Herdis McCrary, the wild bull of Indiana, is a faster starter and almost as hard a runner as Lumpkin. Every time he got an opening today he gained good yardage but Georgia was holding back. They used only about half a dozen plays all afternoon. Perhaps you can find one reason for that if you look forward about 10 days to Grant field. Hill is a good field general and would punt much better if his blocking were better. Hooks was not up to form today and neither was Dudley but it all goes back to the same precept Alabama's line was out- 1 rushing the Bulldog all the afternoon. At the end Georgia is weak. Defensively, Martin showed well when he was at the left wing but Ed Smtth is no such end as Maffet, who will probably' play against Tech. One thing Georgia did not show today was a safety man anything like Thomason. Few chances were offered from returns of punts when the chance came neither Hill nor Johnson showed himself to be a "Stumpy." Just by way of comment it might be added here that there are very few "Stumpys" in this game of football. Georgia's tackling today was generally good. Their secondary was alert enough to stop Campbell one of the finest running backs in the conferenceevery time he broke through the line on his famous spin play, which was very often. His longest gain was 15 yards but he would have been over the goal many a time with a less alert secondary against him. He gained 159 yards from scrimmage against the Bulldogs but most of his yardage could be laid directly to the superior line play of the Tide. In Georgia's forward wall there, were two hubs of strength around which the rest of the line revolved. They were the two co-captains, Lautzenhiser and Jacobson. Their work on defense was outstanding even in defeat. t The firm of Thrash, Maree, Watkins, Sloan. Drennon, Westbrooke, Brooke and company will be hard pressed to preserve their laurels against these two men at tackle and guard. Fat Bryant at the guard position opposite Jacobson also dealt disaster to the Tide more than once. Such figures of comparison could go on forever without any more definite conclusion being reached. From what has gone before it is needless now to say that the Tech-Georgia game of next Saturday shows nothing but a Tech victory according to all the dope. What does dope amount to in the Tech-Georgia game? You may answer that question for yourself. Conference Title Lies Between Tech, Florida Leading Teams Fall by Wayside in Turkey Day Games; Vols Have Bare Chance of Winning. BY HORACE C. RENEGAR, Associated Press Sports Writer. The southern conference football race simmered down Thursday to a battle between Georgia Tech and Florida for supremacy, with one game remaining for each.

Smithies Lose First of Year, But Boys' Win Richmond Academy Triumphs Over Tech High; Lanier Bows. Chattanooga, Tenn., November 29. (Special.) The Ulue and Gold battleship of the University of Chattanooga, after being buffeted about over the breakers of a stormy Chamberlain field gridiron sea this afternoon for three quarters, finally hit fair sailing and come to anchor nursing a 35-to-li.l victory. Those who know oily the figures which give the Moccasins a 10-point margin cannot appreciate the anxiety and, heart strain which wrecked the nuge and colorful holidav crowd early in the second half when the invading Petrels from Oglethorps held a 19-to- 14 lead and were knocking at the portals of the Chattanooga goal for a fourth counter. Petrels Tie Score. Chattanooga took the lead in the second quarter but a moment later Oglethorpe came back to tie. Another Moccasin counter in tightening fashion and the the Moccasins led 14-to-17. Then in the second half the Petrels struck twice like a bolt from the blue and led 19-to-14. A safety gave the local aggregation two more points and then Coach Thomas' bov ran wild in the last quarter to scoV three touchdowns and put the old game on ice. Kenneth Strong, nursing a shoulder which has kept him out of practice for weeks, came on to the field late in the second period to bring the stands to their feet with one of the most spectacular performances ever witnessed on a local gridiron. The Moccasins were fighting, back to the walls, in a desperate attempt to halt the Petrels when Coach Thomas sent Strong to warm up. Their advance momentarily halted the Petrels threw a pass over the line for a touchbaek and. the Moccasins came into possession on their own 20-.vard line. Pass For Score. Kenneth came bounding onto the field rejoicing like a "Strong" maa to run a race and what a race he ran. n the first play Barrett hurled to -0 yards to Strong who streaked the remaining 00 yards like a bolt from a giant howitzer. Cy Bell the fastest man on the Oglethorpe team, set out oue pace behind but the speed which gave Strong a national prep track record stood him in good stead as he outdistanced the Petrel flash. After the scintillating mrfnrmgn of Strong, two giant linemen came m for first honors in yesterday's tumultuous conflict. The towering forms of Joe Kopcha and Spider Johnson stands out in bold relief against the background of the other plavers' deeds. Twice in that first half when me etrels were threatening with every play, Spider saved the day for the Moccasins when an Oglethorpe touchdown seemed inevitable. Petrels Held at Goal. In the first eriod when a steam-rolling Petrel line drive had carried th;m to the two-yard line, it was Johnson who broke through the line, tackled the runner with such violence that the pigskin hounded free and thn recovered the scampering shoat hide for the Moccasins just inches past his own goal line. It was Johnson who early in the next- period when the Petrels were hammering within the five-yard line and tried a pass on the fourth down, who smashed his way over all oppo-ition and downed the would-be passer far in the rear of his forward wall. Koicha's claim to fame does not rest on any one or two sparkling days but on his sixty minutes of murderous line charging which made him a thorn to the Petrels on every play. If ever a man deserves an all-southern berth it is this towering Moccasin tackle. Two Big Berthas. Captain Cleve Barrett and Bill Ward were the tw big Berthas of Coach Thomas artillery, with the exception of that fleeting moment when Strong spread destruction and ruin through the ranks of the Georgians. Time after time those hefty line plungers smashed their way to ten and fifteen-yard gains. Cv Bell, the baekfield wonder of the Oglethorpe brigade, who was preceded b" glowing press notices, was everything claimed for him and more. Ti after tin he darted through the Moccasin wall and it was the secondary which stopped him. If Coach Robertson had h:.d another man or two in his baekfield like Bell the Petrels would not have been bemoaning a defeat today. x Wall, an end. was the big show of the invading forward, slicing through the line of scrimmage to smear several Moccasin plays in their inf :iey. T'jis young man roamed about the Chattanooga backs altogether more than was proper. It jnst isn't beinff done in the best football circles this year. Scoreless Period. Neither team was able to score in the Tirst quarter, although only the valiant work of Spider Johnson kept the Petrels out : fter a powerful line attack had carried them to within inches of a touchdown. Early in the second half the invaders weve again mauling away in Moccasin territory when Clements dropped a pass. Bill Ward was on the errant pigskin like a flash, booted it twice, finally withered it up and raced fifty yawls through an open field to be brought down by a tackle from behind on the twenty-five-yard line. Ward and Barrett plunged for a first down, an off-side penalty wrecked the advance through the line, and Barrett hurled to Braidwood. who dropped over the goal line. Thompson's trustv toe added the extra point. After one fhrust bad been repulsed within the 10-yard line. Cy Bell Continued on rage 12, Column S Tech High's Smithies went to An-gusta. Ga., Thursday and were defeated by the strong Richmond Academy team of that city. The final score was 12 to 6. Meanwhile, Boys' High was taking Laniei High, of Macon, into camp at Macon by a score of 12 to 7. The results of Thursday throw Boys' High back in the thick of the state prep race 'with Tech, which is now leading the flight. The game at Augusta, according to dispatches, was a casj of a strong line stopping the most powerful back-field at- Tech High in recent years. t Timely and well directed forward passes and a blocked punt paved the way for the Augustans' two touchdowns.

Lanier tallied a touchdown in the first period, but could not hold the strong Atlanta team, which took to the air when threatened with defeat. Two touchdowns, one in the second period and the other near the close of the game, settled the argument. SAVANNAH WINS OVER BENEDICTINE. Savannah, G a ., November 29. (VP) Over 10.000 fans saw Savannah High school G. I. A. A. championship contenders, march to an impressive 24-0 victory over Benedictin: school here this afternoon. Superior line play from end to end enabled the Blue team to stage four distinct drives, one in each period, to score touchdowns. The Jackets took the opening kickoff on their 20-yard stripe and marched 80 yards to their first touchdown without losing possession of the ball. Savannah High outplayed their opponents in every phase of the game, their only threat'eoming near the end of the half when a sudden air attack carried the ball inside the 25-yard furrow. Glenn Johnson, freshmnn back, was the baekfield sensation of the game, scoring the first touchdown after gaining nearly 40 yards in the first drive. Jackets Crash Auburn, 51 to 0 Continued From First Page. t!.e only member of the "wrecking crew" who did not play. For the Plainsmen. Tuxworth was the shining light on offense. He made the longest single Auburn gain when he twisted through the line and traveled 17 yards before he was brought down by an angry Jacket. His passes kept the Tech defense on its toes and many, of them fell into the hands of his ends and fellow backs. Sellers punctured the Tech line about as effectively as has any enemy hack this year, which, as you doubtless known, is not saying a great deal. And to that Tiger line must go a word of praise too. Granted that they were not facing the wrecking crew all the time nor were they faced by Tech's heaviest forwards at all times they charged well and with one or .two notable exceptions held for rather short gains. Tech's longest gains and the majority of its yards were made in thrust otitside the tackles or in the air. Following the opening kickoff, with j Tech's "second string" in the battie waged rather closely for a tew minutes with Auburn holding a slight edge in a punting duel between Crawford and Dunlap. Then with the ball in mid-field. Ditnlap whipped a beautiful 40-yard toss to Holland who galloped a few more strides and was thrown on the Tiger five-yard strip. After Dun-lap had reduced this distance by about four yards in two tries, Faisst dove over "left guard for the scores and Herron's place ykick sailed clean between the bars. Ball in Shadow of Goal. That was about all of that quarter until late in the period when a pass and several short spurts brought the ball close to the Plainsmen's goal and Herron tried for a field goal after Auburn had held. The try was short, but Auburn was forced to punt and just as the quarter ended Faisst did that shift through the center of the line and brought the oval to the Auburn 20-yard mark. Before the second quarter was two minutes old, the second Tech score was in the bag after short dashes by Fitzgerald and Faisst and three thrusts by Dunlap had taken it over. Once more Herron's foot was good. Taking the nest " kick-off Auburn put on its only sustained drive of the game. Starting on their own 25-yard line the ' Plainsmen, aided by a 15-yard roughing penalty, short dashes by Tuxworth, Crawford and Sellers, carried the oval to the Jacket 21-yard marker. Here the Golden line stiffened, restrained their tendencies to get off-side, and took the ball on downs. From then on that was as far as an Auburn offense went. Apparently heartened by this effort the Tigers fought strongly on defense and held the Techsters for the remainder of the half. After a more than creditable Auburn band and a ditto bunch of Tech musicians had performed at the- half the hostilities were resumed. And then came the straw which 3efinitely broke the Tiger's 'back if you can call a ton or so of ripping, tearing first-string footballers a "straw." "Wrecking Crew" Starts. Taking the kick-off, the "wrecking crew" quickly started its deadly work. Tom Jones caught the aforesaid kick-off and raced back 2S yards before he was dragged djwn on his own 41-yard line. Parham then uncorked a bullet pass that traveled 25 yards before nestling in the arms of Tom Jones. "Bone-Crusher" Lumpkin waded 14 yards through the middle of things and it only took one play, a fake-buck and lateral pass, Durant to Parhain, to make that score. Thomason booted the point.

STREET, Associated Press Sports Writer. Nashville, Tenn., November 29. (AP) While more than 10,000 followers who look on the Vanderbilt-Sewanee feud as more than football rivalry roared "and ever the twain shall meet," the Commodores defeated the Purple Tigers here today for the twenty-ninth time in the 40th renewal of the.south's oldest gridiron classic. The score was 13 to O. To those who are prone to, scan the season's records and judge teams accordingly, the score was amazingly low, but only those who do not understand the unexplainable spirit which goes with a Vandy-Sewanee examine records when the two meet. Armist ead"s Plugging. The constant plugging of Armi-stead, playing his last game for Van-derbilt, and C. Scheffer and 'the charges of "Bull" Brown, linesman extraordinary, won the game for Van-derbilt, but the steadfastness of the licht Sewanee line, with a season of disaster on its shoulders, shoot out above all else in this "battle of chrysanthemums." Led by Ezell, 141-pound end, the thin nurDle line threw back seven Commodore thrusts with their goal posts only a few feet from their backs. In the first ouarter. the Commo dores rushed the ball to within easy scoring distance three times. One time it looked as though Armistead took it over before he fumbled and a Tiger recovered. The referee gave Sewanee a safety, and Vandy two points, but at the half said he had erred and eraseu me points. Score in Third. Vanderbilt scored early in the second period when Armistead plunged a few feet for a counter after he and Joe Scheffer had worked the ball down the field. The other touchdown came in the third period when C. Scheffer ran around end for 11 yards. The Tigers were on the defense virtually all of the time and made but few efforts to gain. Their only rfiance for a touchdown went glimmering when they tried three passes, all unsuccessful, after they had blocked a Vandy punt on the Commodores' 16-yard line. The game ended the season for both teams, and closed the Vanderbilt career for Armistead, Hhe "bald eagle." The Commodore captain, who made several bids for greatness during the year, played excellently today and bore most of his team's burdens. The lineup: THE LINETJF. SEWANEE (0) Pos.

The "Little Giant' took a 40-yard punt from Crawford and promptly set it at naught by running the ball bark 45 yards before he was finally stopped on the Auburn 26-yard line. Lumpkin and Thomason, in two plays, took the ball to the Auburn 14-yard line. Then the Tiger drew a 5-yard off-side punishment and Lumpkin with one of his terrific drives landed the leather a foot from the goal. Father scored on the next play. Stumpy booted the point. , - Thia wasn't pnmiL'h to satisfy the powers that be and the maulers con tinued their, wicked work, iteceiving o L-;,L-fff wh'ifh w.ia ahlv returned ;.bout 20 yards by Lumpkin, Durant shortly decided to nana tne Dan i" this same Father. Accepting the offering gratefully, that husky gentleman set his powerful legs in motion and they didn't atop unui ne nu rf liia wt 44 vnrrla down the sw;.rd to the Auburn 26-yard, stripe. From there on it was unmpmu, Thomason, Thomason, Lumpkin in bucks to the goal line with Stumpy carrying it the final foot and adding the point. . The big fellows had now worked themselves out of a job and were, called back to the shelter of the bencK. In rapid succession al the faithfal subs were shot into the fray and they proved their wcrth by jointly conspiring to add 16 more points to the already top-heavy score. , After some palavering about in mud- field as the fourth period started, Bandolph broke through the center of the line near midfield and raced to the PIai..smen"s ID-yard line. Here the backs were stopped again and S-nith dropped hsck to send the ball over for a field goal from the 26-yard line. Af er struggling about in midfield with the stubborn Tigers refusing to look at the score board and fighting as if the game had jnst started, the Jackets were again forced into the air. A heave of ?.0k yards was completed by Dunljjp to Faisst. "Dutch" canght it on the Auburn 10-yard line and after poo-pooing an aspiring tackier stepped over that final strip. Smith i-op-kicked the point. Still fightin? blindly the Tigers kept on and had jsnaged to get a couple of first lowns on Tuxworth's accurate passes when Dunlap broke np the party by grabbing an errant pass and galloping down the sideline for 55 yards and the last Tech score. A pass, Dunlap to Luna, was dropped on the try for the extra point, but nobody cared except Mr. Luna. The Game Ends. The affair ended with the 1all in the middle of the field as Rusk recovered a Tiger fumble. Despite the fact that they" gained only 64 yards in carrying the ball from scrimmage the Plainsmen were credited with seven first downs. This total was helped by timely penalties and some profitable passes. . Their gross gain from scrimmage, including passes and running plays, was 105 yards. Tech, with all its heavy scoring, only rang up 14 first downs, clearly indicating that the boys in the golden jerseys made 'em count. Their rushing brought them 322 yards, while their total gain in the air and on the ground was the rather staggering total of 448 yards. That the Jacket passing attack was plenty effective is shown by the fact that of only seven tries four were completed for a total of 126 yards, two fell incomplete and one went into fin enemy's hands. Auburn flipped the ball 14 times, sir were completed for 41 yards, seven fell incomplete and the other one went to Dunlap with the aforementioned results. Lumpkin led the backs in average, but all the Tech ball-carriers who worked for any length of time at all managed to ring up some long gains and register good averages.

The visitors missed the goal. Flippin Scores. Virginia's second touchdown was claimed by Flippin, a fast end, wiio picked up a fumble and ran 45 yard-. This time the kick went wide and although the scoreboard thought Virginia was awarded the point and credited the Cavaliers with 14 points l- r the rest of the half, the score at tl time was really 13 to 0.
